Race and racism— the words, the concepts, and the phenomena they refer to—are often confused. I would like to show how they can be distinguished and indicate some advantages of maintaining a sharp separation between them. This will involve charting a path from a familiar racist race concept to a less familiar non-racist concept. I will also show how the distinction between race and racism can be maintained even after the way in which racism is implicated in the constitution of the phenomenon of social race is recognized.
