White Supremacy

A system of beliefs, attitudes, policies and practices that benefit white people (the dominant group) and gives them power over non-white people. It comes from the belief that white people are better and more important than people of other ethnic and racial backgrounds. Sometimes even non-white people believe this themselves. This results in people of African and Asian heritage and other ethnicities being treated unfairly, including being discriminated against (racism), attacked and denied the opportunities that white people have.
