Racist

A person who deliberately or unintentionally gives preferential or detrimental treatment to persons of a given race. For example, a racist may prefer to hire persons of race A or may be more likely to dismiss persons of race B. In many jurisdictions, racial discrimination is illegal in business settings, though the specific measures taken to prevent it have proven controversial. See also: Affirmative action.
