Couldn't racism be considered a form of elitism, because it involves a belief in a superior (or ELITE) race, with which the racist individual would associate himself/herself.

Racism is a type of elitism, but not the only kind. Racism is worse than other forms of elitism, though. Elitism is just obnoxious.

I'm with UncleLaughie on this one. By the way Kiki love the pic you found to illustrate the racism. I love political cartoons.

Racism is the worst form of elitism because you're excluding people based soley on the color of their skin.

I am fairly elitist anyways though, because I have a very select amount of people i'll associate myself with, it has nothing to do with their race though.. More to do with if they're not lame.

I always thought Elitism was a a way of thinking, a superiority kind of thing, perhaps I am wrong. And while thinking you can ignore, and close your eyes on people like that, racists take action and it to me seems worse.

since racism is under elitism, would elitism be worse? its like saying whats worse, manslaughter or killing. killing has more variety to it and is bad... even if sometimes its "justified"
