@Sonofcharl.

I think your assessment is wrong.

Racism is a form of prejudice. Specifically in regard to skin tone or nationality.

Prejudice is to assume in advanced that something with a certain quality or attribute automatically gives it another quality or attribute. One example would be "That flower is pink, So it must be happy" If you actually believed this, You would have a prejudice notion that all pink flowers are happy.

An assumed difference could be a form of prejudice, It could also be an assumed similarity. So your assessment is too restrictive.

Racism is about assumed differences.

Variation in skin tone is but one difference.

There are many other assumed differences. Religion and/or geographical location being prime examples.
