1) Is race a group, coz from my understanding the word race defines a group of people based on skin colour, therefore racism has to be group based e.g, one group oppressing another group based on skin colour.

2) If an individual white man mistreats someone based on colour is that racism, because racism from my understanding of the term race, is group based.

What I am trying to understand is that is there a difference between one white person mistreating an individual non-white and a group of white people ( race) mistreating non- whites ( group).

According to compensatory counter-racist logic, race is racism.

Yes, because that individual white man is following a code, a racist code, a code of thought, speech, and/or action that results in people they classify as non-white (not white) being mistreated because of that non-white color classification. White people say they are not colored. The white people who practice racism (white supremacy), by practicing racism (white supremacy), prove they are not colored.

No. A collective group of people is made up of individual people. A collective group of white people who practice racism (white supremacy) are made up of individual white people who, at a time and place of their own choosing, decide to use speech and/or action that results in a non-white person being mistreated on the basis of color.
