چکیده

The deepest and most rooted form of racism is expressed in the Bible which claims the superiority of a race as God's demand or divine destination. But this idea survived in modern philosophy by appeal to the different methods. In this paper we will introduce methods of justifying racism, most of which are in the philosophical context. The claim that some races have not enough reason to be members of civil society and enjoy their rights is legal racism. In the historical method, it is claimed that the history of thought has shown that some races play a major role in the production of thought and this is a result of their superiority. In philosophical method, it is argued that some of the human capabilities in some species have not been activated and finally in scientific method, it is claimed that the superiority of one race in the struggle for survival is a scientific achievement of the scientific laws such as Evolution hypothesis.
