Why do we continue to use the word “racism” to describe bigotry and intolerance against people with different skin color?

The very word “race” promotes the theory that a human being is of a different racial group due to the color of his or her skin even though it has been scientifically disproven. There is only one race of bi-pedal apes on the planet — the human race. There are no other races!
