Discrimination vs Racism

Any group that advocates for one race and rejects including all races, is by definition, a racist organization. Any person who has been denied, purely on the basis of skin color has experienced racism. This is never acceptable regardless of which racial groups are represented in each situation.

A person who was denied because of how they choose to represent themselves; such as how they act, speak and dress, has experienced discrimination, but not racism.

Discrimination allows humanity to decide between one thing and another by comparison.

Average, law abiding citizens may choose to distance themselves from others who choose to use socially unacceptable language and behavior. This isn't racism.
