What is the difference, by definition, between ethnocentrism and racism? While writing a post just now, I realised that ethnocentrism is more cultural than biological, however, in those groups where ethnocentrism is considered important as a form of social identity, there are also elements of biological identification [ie restrictions on admission to the group, marriage and group exclusivity] So whats the definition of ethnocentrism? And how is it different from racism? edit: could the moderator add the h in the title? Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
