   500 WORDS CONCEPT PAPER “RACISM”   Submitted by: Nestle faith G. Zuasola Geralyn B. Ibarola   Racism, also called racialism, any action, practice, or belief that reflects the racial worldview — the ideology that humans may be divided into separate and exclusive biological entities called “races”; that there is a causal link between inherited physical traits and traits of personality, intellect, morality, and other cultural and behavioral features; and that some races are innately superior to others. Since the late 20th century the notion of biological race has been recognized as a cultural. While the concepts of race and ethnicity are considered to be separate in contemporary social science, the two terms have a long history of equivalence in both popular usage and older social science literature. "Ethnicity" is often used in a sense close to one traditionally attributed to "race": the division of human groups based on qualities assumed to be essential or innate to the group (e.g. shared ancestry or shared behavior). Therefore, racism  and racial discrimination  are often used to describe discrimination on an ethnic or cultural basis, independent of whether these differences are described as racial. According to a United Nations convention on racial discrimination, there is no distinction between the terms "racial" and "ethnic" discrimination. The UN convention further concludes that superiority based on racial differentiation is scientifically false, morally condemnable, socially unjust and dangerous, and there is no justification for racial  discrimination, anywhere, in theory or in practice. [3]    Race is an ongoing issue within the United States. For a nation that was founded with the institution of slavery, the issue has not left since. Several important concepts related to racism are often confused with each other due to the fact that the differences between them (while very important) are relatively subtle. One of the custom writing services available from Ultius is critical analysis and the intent of this sample essay is to compare and contrast the specific concepts of racism, discrimination, and affirmative action .
