Radio Show Racism

This week The Catch Da Flava Radio show was on Racism hosted by Kelvin produced by Saima. We our show began with the history and definition of racism. Racism has existed throughout human history.
It may be defined as the hatred of one person by another -- or the belief that another person is less than human -- because of skin color, language, customs, and place of birth or any factor that supposedly reveals the basic nature of that person. It has influenced wars, slavery, the formation of nations, and legal codes. Racism is the belief that race is the primary determinant of human capacities, that a certain race is inherently superior or inferior to others, and/or that individuals should be treated differently according to their racial designation. Sometimes racism means beliefs, practices, and institutions that discriminate against people based on their perceived or ascribed race. There is a growing, but controversial, opinion that racism is a system of oppression -- a nexus of racist beliefs, whether explicit, tacit or unconscious; practices; organizations and institutions that combine to discriminate against and socially marginalize a class of people who share a common racial designation, based on that designation.
Layia and Assic talked about Racism around the word also Layia told her personal story about racism on the air. Layia said the majority of racism is directed at Muslims. Kelvin talked about racism against black people and racism in job market.
