I know there isn't one universal definition of racism, but that one is pretty lousy. For one thing, racism isn't simply preconceived notions about races possessing certain traits, but a belief in the inherent inferiority of some races and the inherent superiority of others. Also racism isn't just about prejudice, but about prejudice PLUS power.
