    1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
    1. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

    I do not believe one must be a hater, to exhibit racial prejudice. Some people who are bigots do hate others based on race and act upon his or her hatred in the form of discrimination or acts of violence. But, others just feel uncomfortable around people of different ethnicities and races soley because of his or her race or ethnicity and not because of the persons character. MLK talked about someday this not being a factor that would continue to separate people and that people would one day be judged by the content of his or her character.
