Racism

No human race is superior; no religious faith is inferior. All collective judgments are wrong. Only racists make them. 

 ~ Elie Wiesel

Although race is now generally understood to be a social construct without scientific significance among human being, concepts of race continue to affects people’s lived experience through racism, the institutionalized practices of preference and discrimination based on differences of what is presumed to be race. The UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD, Race Convention, 1965) addresses all forms of distinction, exclusion, restriction, or preference based on race as a violation of fundamental human rights.
