Can white people in the USA be victims of racism?
Back to question

Institutional or systemic power is not a necessary component of racism.

Racism refers to the belief that some races are inferior to others. While this belief can be combined with social powers to disadvantage groups, power is not imperative in constructing racism. People can believe they are superior to other races, even if they are part of a discriminated group in their environment themselves.
