This chapter focuses on the conception of racism that underpins Race Relations policy and theory. It examines both UK Race Relations policy and Northern Ireland's specific policy. The first articulation of the Race Relations approach emerged at the time of the First World War in the city of Chicago. Racisms are commonly associated with prejudice. In Northern Ireland, the association between racisms and prejudice can be seen in documents produced by a diverse range of organisations. John Rex and Michael Banton's argument, examines the social context in which racisms arise is a more fruitful way of approaching the differing forms of racisms than an approach that differentiates on the basis of the victim group. Banton notes that Rex's distinction between different 'race relations situations' provides us with conceptual tools that enable us to talk about different forms of racism that do not rely on 'ethnic' or 'racial' distinctions.
