When a person is harmed because of his color of the skin, the language, the ethnic origin, features, customs, etc., it is a racial violence. That is, when some harm others because the latter have, for instance, a physical appearance different from their own.

Some of the examples of racial violence are racism, slavery, discrimination, segregation, apartheid, pogroms, theories of racial superiority or racial inferiority, etc.

Some other forms of racism are not so evident, such as sending certain racial or subracial types to the battlefield as so-called ‘cannon fodder’, or portraying them in a grotesque way on the mass media, or applying double standards while dealing with different races, etc.racial_violence
