Can you tell me how to know a person if he/she is a real racist or not ?
Are there any articles in the papers or news on television about killing people of different race these day ?

Are you asking what to do if you suspect a newspaper article contains racist ideas or what to do if you feel picked on in school? You must understand there is no fool proof way to say what racism is and the different approaches depend really much on the situation and in what country you live. If you would be more specific, I think you would get a much better answer.

Racism is unfortunately still a prevalent problem in society today. It may not always be as overt or obvious as it was in the past, but it still exists in various forms. It can be seen in discriminatory practices, stereotypes, and unequal treatment of individuals based on their race.

As for identifying whether someone is a real racist or not, it can be a difficult task. Racism is not always something that is outwardly displayed, and it can manifest in subtle ways. However, some signs that may indicate a person is a racist include using derogatory language or slurs towards a certain race, making assumptions or generalizations about a person based on their race, and displaying a lack of empathy or understanding towards individuals of different races. It is important to note that not all racists exhibit these behaviors, and it is not always easy to determine someone's beliefs or attitudes towards race.

In terms of media coverage, unfortunately, there are still incidents of hate crimes and violence against individuals of different races. These incidents are often reported in newspapers and news on television, highlighting the ongoing issue of racism in our society. It is important to stay informed and educated on these issues and to actively work towards promoting equality and combating racism in all its forms.
