Racism can be described as the feeling that individual races of people have some peculiar cultural features that are defined by hereditary factors and consequently make some races genetically superior to others. The belief that one race has natural superiority over the others created abusive behavior towards the members of other races.
The belief that a particular race or religion or caste has distinctive cultural traits and that they are much superior to others is completely illogical. There is no such thing as superiority or inferiority. We should consider all people as equal and should not be biased because of any reason, either color, caste, creed, or sex. We all know that this is wrong, but we have been following this for ages now. It is like the theory that our ancestors have set and we are bound to follow all those rules and regulations.
We should never judge people according to their color, or the way they speak. We should consider everyone equal and eliminate racism from our country. Though it is almost negligible in the urban cities, but in some of the rural areas, racism still prevails with all its power. The people are getting educated, and with this education, racism should have been extinguished by now. India is a land of diverse cultures. People having different castes live with each other. Even when we go to schools or colleges, all the students having different castes sit with each other, make friends irrespective of their castes. But as we grow older, we are taught to discriminate against people on the basis of their color and sometimes sex as well. Women, in our country, are not given much importance and they are degraded for no reason. Even in offices, they have a low grade pay than men. In rural areas, they are not allowed to work. They are just asked to stay at home and manage household chores.
