It's not "a form" of racism, it IS racism at it's heart. Anytime you make a decision about someone for a job or whether to like them or not, based on the color of their skin, be it black, white, yellow or purple with puce polka dots, it's racism. As MLK jr. said (paraphrased) the only thing that matters is the content of his character. Skin color is of absolutely no consequence except to racists.

The first hour was all fun, all idle nonsense and laughter. But that could not be kept up. The steady drudging became like work, the play had somehow oozed out of it, the stillness of the woods and the sombreness of the night began to throw a depressing influence over the spirits of the boys and presently the talking died out and each person shut himself up in his own thoughts. During the last half of the second hour nobody said a word. – Mark Twain, The Private History of a Campaign That Failed
