What is poorly defined about racism? From Webster's....

rac-ism \'ra^--,siz-em, -,shiz-\ n
1: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and
capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority
of a particular race

OK? Oh, and yes, white racism is all bad. I base this view on the USA Declaration
of Independence.
