  • Someone that has hatred towards another person based solely on their race/ethinicity. A racist feels that their own race is superior to others. It's ignorance and the fear of accepting or embracing another culture that is not their own.l

  • Someone who feels they are superior to others (thinking the other person is inferior b/c of their race) Someone who buys into the stereotypes & does not get to know someone b/c of the color of their skin.

  • Someone who thinks their race/ethnicity is superior to others, and is generally intolerant or hateful to those who are different from them. Someone who thinks skin color has anything to do with someone's worth or abilities. Someone who thinks anything they think is superior and is intolerant of those who differ (whether it be race, politics, religion, etc.) are bigots. A racist is a bigot, but not all bigots are racists, if that makes sense.
