What is a TED talk?
TED is a non-profit organisation with headquarters in NYC and Vancouver. However, TED talks happen all around the world. With the slogan 'Ideas worth spreading', they hold conferences all over the world where interesting people willing to share opinions, ideas and experiences talk, usually for about 15-20 mins. There are TED talks about history, politics, science, medicine, philosophy and many more stuff.
Racism Ted Talk?
Not going to write it, but key talking points would be: * People recognize patterns. * People avoid circumstances that lead to negative patterns * People naturally have a fear of the unknown or what is different * Fear of the unknown leads to in-group preference Racism is the result of in-group preference mixed with fear of difference. The feelings of Racial preference are bolstered by the recognition of negative patterns/behaviors by out-group individuals. there's a lot more, but that's a solid basis to rationalize racism.
TED = Technology Entertainment Design, although the topics discussed at the TED Conference (and TEDx events) have expanded to almost anything that is important, including education, philanthropy, justice, health, outer space and oceanography.
TED is an acronym for Technology, Entertainment, Design.TED is a media company which posts talks online for free distribution. TED is one of the most influential companies which has no religious, commercial or political agenda - their aim is to spread ideas and experiences, improve communication and connection, spark conversation and enlighten minds.Speakers from different walks of life, different genders, different countries, different races, different abilities are are asked to present their experiences and thoughts. There are speeches covering a wide range of topics from technology to human empowerment, from science to culture, from storytelling to motivational speeches. Their videos are what commonly referred to as TED talks.They stand true to their slogan “Ideas Worth Spreading”. I make it a habit to watch at least one video a day. (way better use of time than scrolling endlessly through social media, but that’s just MY opinion!). They are life changing and I am not exaggerating!You can watch their videos either on their Youtube channel TED or on their website TED: Ideas worth spreading .Image Source: Google Images

HiI have already answered this question before.I am providing the link below, have a look.Tarun Uniyal's answer to What is the main difference between TED and TEDx? Which one is better?Tarun Uniyal's answer to Is TEDx Talks considered as prestigious as TED Talks?Thank youHope my answer servers its purpose:)
The purpose of the TED Conference, from which TED Talks are produced, is to bring though leaders and subject matter experts onto the stage and share their “Idea Worth Spreading”. The brilliance of this model is that attendees hear the talks live, while videos produced from the presentations are posted online for anyone in the world to access free of charge.The hope is that the ideas/perspectives/insights contained within these talks broaden/challenge perspectives of the attendees/viewers. This may result in direct action to help a cause, a change in personal behavior, or a new way to consider problems that are affecting society - a new outlook/understanding.
They are inspirational. They are like the self help books that make you feel better about yourself, remind you of things you haven't thought of, and inspire you to do more positive stuff. They are usually delivered in a way that's fairly captivating and fun, with surprising titbits of news or findings sprinkled in, or a new perspective on something. It's usually delivered by an expert in some field. So listening to them makes it feel like you are doing something smart and productive. On the other hand it requires little effort from your end and it is easier to understand than reading the Financial Times or whatever the smart books are.
