Racism is a highly publicized and a very sensitive topic when it comes to discussion. However it should be acknowledges that racism is present very extensively in the world whether it is against the people of different color or against people of different religions or ethnicities. The most common form of racism however that has been observed is that between the whites and the non whites.
Traditionally as well as in the history, the whites have been the dominating parties who held positions of importance and dominance over the colored people all over the world. This was through inheritance of kingdoms as well as waging war to conquer new lands and people. As a result even nowadays in the democratic and free constitution based society the stigma of white dominance over colored people is very dominant and tends to form prejudices amongst people.
