CARYS SERRIES started this petition to Oxford English Dictionary and

Petition for the dictionaries to include the full definition of racism, direct and systematic, as understood by current sociological academia for educational purposes. Institutional racism is distinguished from the explicit attitudes or racial bias of individuals by the existence of systematic policies or laws and practices that provide differential access to goods, services and opportunities of society by race [1]. Prejudice, with the addition of being in the power group is the definition of racism. If the perpetrator is not in the power group however, the act cannot be categorised as racist, however, it would be prejudicial, as is the general consensus of the current literature.

The current entry definition of racism is not 100% accurate, as it excludes the structure of society created to benefit the power group, and is used to discredit legitimate cases of racism as it stands, despite being scientifically inaccurate, both in academic and social settings. I have linked sources from Professor Teun A. van Dijk, a respected academic in the field of Text Linguistics, Discourse Analysis and Critical Discourse analysis with combined citations of over 3500 for the two research texts below:
