Prejudice vs Racism

"All people have prejudices; this may be considered to be one of humankind's great failings. However, for a group to be legitimately classified as racist, it must possess the power to impose its prejudices on members of other ethnic groups. Power transforms a 'pre-judged belief' into an ideology that is popularized, legitimized, and finally, incorporated into the legislative, judicial, religious, and social system designed to control the powerless." -From, "Survival Strategies For Africans In America" By: Anthony Browder
