For what is racism?
A precise doctrine, which can be summed up in four points.
First, that a correlation exists between genetic heritage on the one hand and intellectual aptitudes and moral dispositions on the other. Second: that this heritage on which the aptitudes and dispositions are held to depend is common to all the members of certain human groups. Third: that these groups called ‘races’ can be hierachized in terms of the quality of their genetic heritage. Fourth: that these differences authorize those ‘races’ held to be sperior to command and exploit others, maybe to destroy them.
