Definition of racism

Lately I see a lot of people claiming that racism is specifically prejudice by a group in power towards a minority group.

That's not how I understood racism. I figured it was someone prejudiced toward any racial group different from their own. I don't believe in concepts like "reverse racism" or anything. I don't want this to turn into a discussion over whether which group is the most racist.

I'm just wondering if, considering your personal definition, it's possible for a member of a minority group to be racist toward the majority group. Also, if you can find a source, I'd greatly appreciate it.

This seemed to confirm my belief.

And a more lighthearted question:

Do you ever go to that website to look something up, and laugh when you hear the pronunciation? It's just funny to me to hear someone say the word "scrotum" all by itself.
