Think of it in terms of levels or grades
racism > discrimination > prejudice
and understand that there are different types of racism, you have interpersonal racism, institutional racism, and systemic racism.
but for the sake of this conversation, let’s keep it simple.
Prejudice is when a person holds illogical negative views about a particular subject. This subject could literally be anything.
Discrimination is when a person let’s their personal prejudices manifest by actively acting in detriment towards whatever they’re prejudice against.
Racism is a system of societal wide discrimination created by those who hold society power and privilege.
