Yet from the perspective of the minorities, "racism" is defined not only in terms of individual prejudice, but also in terms of a power structure which protects the only the interests of the dominant culture and actively discriminates against the ethnic minorities. According to this perspective, they claim that while members of ethnic minorities may be prejudiced against members of the dominant culture, they lack the political and economic power to actively oppress them, and they are therefore incapable of "racism". The precise usage of this term is still in the process of defining, but this sure has become an objective existence in this
Racism consists of both prejudice and discrimination based in social perceptions of biological differences between peoples. (Wikipedia 1). Racism started since the colonial era and the slave era.

The physical, verbal and emotional bullying, insulting or degrading comments, name calling, gestures, taunts and insults or 'jokes', these stressors trigger depression and anxiety. A Cornell News Service study in 2009 did a study on the effects of racism saying that racial discrimination erodes mental health. Moreover, dealing with this alone and having no one to tell about this would turn one’s thinking that he is hopeless.

ABSTRACT The present paper explores and examines the notion of injustice or discrimination and its treatment by the perception of social justice and humanism by adopting a cross cultural perspective with reference to analysis of racial discrimination in Joseph Conrad’s novella, Heart of Darkness and Mulk Raj Anand’s portrayal of caste discrimination in his novel, Untouchable. Prejudice or discrimination on the base of caste or colour has been a universal practice by human race. The discrimination on each basis generates similar repercussions. It entwines the tale of wretchedness, sufferings, pain and agony in the life of an individual. It can be anecdotal that racism and casteism are sheer naught as they are simply social hypothesis.
The three most common types of discrimination faced in our generation are racism, religion discrimination, and homophobia.
