Please answer the following questions:
Define, compare and contrast “Racism as a Set of Attitudes” and “Racism as a System of Power.” What is the difference between “race” and “racism?‘ Incorporate concepts of “ethnocentrism,” “prejudice,” “discrimination,” and “colorblind racism” into your analysis.
