Marc Faber against Racism

One view holds that racism is best understood as 'prejudice plus power' because without the support of political or economic power, prejudice would not be able to manifest as a pervasive cultural, institutional, or social phenomenon.            

Furthermore, what sociologists tend to overlook when discussing racism are economic issues.

Having visited South Africa before Apartheid was lifted and experienced first-hand racial discrimination combined with viciousness and extreme cruelty I am naturally against any form of racism although, as my friend Laeeth Isharc points out in my report, this should not prevent us from being proud of our heritage.
