Is it racism to have organizations to strengthen an ethnicity?
I work for a company that embraces all races and tries to make known that all races are welcome to be employed by them and use of the facilities; yet the underlying purpose is to assist in strengthening their own race. Before them, a different corporation I was employed by was doing the same thing. The name of both companies are of their nationalities. Is it racism or the straining to be politically correct so not to be sued by other ethnic groups?
If you treat people different just because of race then yes, that is racism.
An effort to improve the lifestyle or the conditions of another race/ethnicity/gender etc. in an effort to create equality and harmony I would say no that is not racism. Racism is the denial of opportunities and equities given to some and not to others. The playing field must be equal to rid ourselves of racism. Should you care to look back in history where racism is being addressed and in an effort to correct or rectify this situation those who have plenty are asked to make concessions in order to give others an opportunity to reach equality. Treating everyone the same might be equal but that doesn't mean it's fair!

"Today, racism is regarded as a crime if practiced by a majority--but as an inalienable right if practiced by a minority. The notion that one’s culture is superior to all others solely because it represents the traditions of one’s ancestors, is regarded as chauvinism if claimed by a...
