Only the replies to the one thread you selected
Neptune: Racism: judging on the basis of race
Brenna: Racism: the systemic/continuous prejudice and discrimination against minorities.
Rigil Kentaurus: Racism is an attempt to hoard power through the intentional and calculated exploitation of racialized groups of people.
Luyten 726-8A: racism: adopting the viewpoint of ''US x THEM".
Sunflower: Racism: The view that differences in physical characteristics of human beings should reflect their political, economic, and social relationships to one another
Ross 248: Racism is the belief and the attendant actions that consider people to have less inherent dignity based on the color of their skin. Anti-racism is the attempt to change that belief and dismantle the systems predicated on that belief.
Kaer Morhen: racism is a system of advantage based on skin color that permeates not only our institutions but our hearts and minds. no one is unaffected.
Starkiller Base: Racism is the societally perpetuated collection of biases that trains an individual to believe in the false deficiencies or inferiorities of others based on racial identity.
Messier 83: Racism is a belief in white superiority that can be interpersonal but can also be systemic (built into our systems like policing, courts, education, healthcare). Because it can be and is systemic, to not be racist, people have to be anti-racist--actively working to change racist systems and educating others on racism.
Loc Muinne: Racism is prejudiced against a group of people based on race WITH the societal, economic, legal and political power (4 pillars of society) to suppress them and their freedoms based on your prejudice. Anti-racism is removing the ability to suppress people based on race using these 4 pillars of society.
Rigel: Racism is the treatment of a human being based on the color of their skin or other God-given characteristics that should never have influence on any decision-making.
Hoth: Racism is the invidious subordination of some groups to others, made solely on the basis of race.
Castel Ravello: Racism is about using one group of people believing and acting as if they superior to another group. Although I believe racism can be interpersonal and internalized, it is all connected to structural power.
Neptune: Racism: judging on the basis of race. Anti-racism: opposing judgment on the basis of race.
Deimos: Not that I think anybody will read this but – I think racism is about disadvantages created through the structures created by a society that did not value lives that were not white as much as they valued lives that were white. That's why there's no such thing as "reverse racism" --- However, that being said anybody can be a bigot. Calling someone the N-word and calling someone "Jackie Chan" are both harmful and racist behavior (albiet maybe not to the same extent)
Puck: I believe racism is the internal belief that one "race" of people are lower or less worthy on the sole basis of race. I believe it is not exclusive to a certain group of people and that all races can be racist and the subject of racism. As to anti-racism, I am unfamiliar with the term but would imagine it being an active belief and quest to end racism
Luyten 726-8B: Racism: treating people differently, consciously or subconsciously, because of their race. Anti-racism: actively working to combat the inequalities created by racism
Hoags Object: Racism: power + privilege, based on the color of skin. Anti-racism: actively fighting to dismantle that power structure
Athos: Racism is so much more complex than simply individualized actions. Racism is systemic and impacts every institution in this nation. It is so deeply engrained into the foundation of our nation that it operates in subtle ways. To be anti-racist, you need to do more than simply not use racial slurs or be openly and conspicuously racist. This requires uncovering and working to combat your implicit biases as well as listening to elevating the voices of POC in your life.
Cidaris: Anti-racism: the active process of identifying racist organizations and dismantling those organizations, systems, and attitudes to transfer power.
Arcturus: Racism is seeing, judging, and treating another person by the color of their skin. It is built on a system of power imbalance and hierarchy. Anti-racism is the endeavor to isolate those biases and dismantle them.
Moon: Blackness as the separation. But in fact, we are actually talking about Whiteness and the ways in which it perpetuates itself as a system of oppression and that part of being in the in-group is the ability and right to subject others to any form of violence without consequence because of said whiteness. It is the ability to perpetuate a system of violence while being "invisible"
Titan: racism: a violence rooted in fear, ignorance, and insecurity -- a concerted attempt to maintain hegemony and power in favor of white people/ Westphalian world views
Tatooine: being anti-racist is vigorously fighting both complicity and silence in the face of systems which oppress
Celestis: Anti-racism seems to be based in identifying racism within ourselves and larger structures and actively working to remove it. Racism is the oppression of groups on the basis of skin color, religion, or ethnic background. Racism then is in turn connected to class and power.
Mars: Racism is when one discriminates against another, either explicitly or implicitly, because of their race. Anti-racism, on the other hand, is an explicit effort, because it's the conscious effort to eliminate the effects of a racist system on marginalized communities and people of color.
Triton: When we talk about racism, we are talking about power – specifically, forms of power founded by white supremacy and how it constructed ideas of access/inaccess rooted in racial subordination. Racism is not just interpersonal, it is institutional. It is why institutions like HLS refuse to hire more Black faculty, to have CRT curriculum. It is why HLS divests in prisons, and was built on the backs of Black folks. It is also the mode of thinking that perpetuates elitism within the ivory tower. Anti-racism is working to address these hierarchies of power, and to understand the systems that intertwine with it. It means that the work must be intersectional, and acknowledge how racism ties to gender, class, and nationality. It is a way to create accountability, to call for dismantling the institutions that create harm, and to create tools to counter (in)visible bias.
Cloud City: Racism should be - unwarranted prejudice against people on the basis of race. I think the current discourse on racism goes beyond that to cover all kinds of judgement based on race. But even then, not all judgements, since some races are still allowed to be judged if they are a majority or privileged race, sometimes even in a way that is deemed "anti-racist"
Rhea: Racism is the default state of being in the United States because all people, regardless of race, participate in and uphold white supremacy. White supremacy is the default and it is pervasive. Anti-racism is deconstructing white supremacy.
Brenna: anti-racism: actively opposing and seeking to undo the system of white supremacy
Langara: Prejudice superiority
Sateda: Racism is, in many ways, unavoidable – at its most basic level, it is the conscious or unconscious act of viewing the world around us through a lens of skin color. It pervades our thought based on years of learned interaction. Anti-racism cannot be passive… it requires the active confrontation and negation of this innate world view.
Kashyyyk: Racism: a system that unfairly and ridiculously provides societal (social, financial, etc.) privileges to one group of people (white people) over others who do not fit into that group (non-white people). Anti-racism: working to eradicate as much racism as possible through abolition, reform, and education. Line that separates: It’s thin. White Supremacy and it’s impact on western cultural (our standards, beliefs, etc.) is intense to say the least.
Endor: Racism is the conscious or subconscious rejection that races are equal and actions that perpetuate such inequalities. Antiracism is actions that combat this
Abydos: Racism is so encompassing that I find it difficult to define so concisely, but I will try. Racism is the belief that groups of people are more or less worthy because of the color of their skin and/or their ethnic background. It is the belief that white people are most valued and possess the best traits, while everyone who is not “white” is less than. Black people are the ultimate recipients of racism. Antiracism is an active mindset and approach to life comprised on conscious action against racism at every term—aiming for true equity.
Procyon B: Racism is a structure of oppression.

Triton: "Triton" poster - edit - Harvard *invests* in prisons, not divests (divest is what we want...along with abolishing)
Luyten 726-8A: racism: adopting the viewpoint of ''US x THEM".
