The claim of national and tribal superiority damages justice, which is one of the bases of community life, seriously. Its outcome for humanity is tyranny, oppression and terror. Favoring people of the same race is an inseparable characteristic of racism. From this point of view, it is impossible for a racist to be fair and to act with mercy.
Racism enervates the connections of community.

Racism is to consider a nation or a tribe superior blindly and therefore to despise others. It is an aggressive, invasive and a tyrannical mentality which disparages any fundamentals that are not based on their own customs. Racism is a microbe that enervates religious connections, helps anarchy and savagery to spread and causes destruction in the structure of the community. It is destructive because it cares about tribal and national connections instead of religious and moral relations which regulate community life. The most grievous corruption in the society is nation and tribe superiority. For this reason, this illness is one of the first elements that could disintegrate our unity. Disagreements and disunity exist in the essence of racism.

The harms of racism can be summarized as follows:
