Theories and Types of Racism. Racial Discrimination in Slovenia

Research Paper (undergraduate), 2022

13 Pages, Grade: 9


Abstract or Introduction

In the first part I defined race and racism and explained the theories and types of racism. Then I described racial discrimination in Slovenia. I finished with racism in the past.

The word comes from the Italian word razza, meaning "clan, tribe, species". It includes the belief that genetic or hereditary differences cause the inherent superiority or inferiority of one ethnic group over another. It is directed against an individual or group in a less privileged position.

It refers not only to social attitudes towards a particular group, but also to social structures and actions that oppress, exclude or discriminate against such individuals or groups.

The use of correct terms in the study of race and ethnicity can be complex. Some people think it would be better to use the terms as they are used by the different ethnic groups themselves: an example is the word "black" (in the UK) and "people of colour" (in the US). The problem is that sometimes even ethnic groups disagree on the correct use of terms: some people, who are more politically oriented, prefer one term and other people prefer another. Feminist Kum-Kum Bhavnani suggests that the term 'black' should be used in the UK as a political category for racist groups - those who face racism that they feel first-hand - groups such as Pakistanis, Indians and Bangladeshis. Others disagree, however, because they feel that the term "black" does not fit Asians in the UK, because it creates a false sense of unity between nations, and because it would be used inappropriately.
