Pity is sorrowfully noting another persons suffering, but regarding them as outgroup, weak and/or inferior and hence, undeserving of any wish to alleviate, or efforts towards alleviating suffering – has both automatic component and deliberative influences..
Note: the Oxford English Dictionary does not define pity with such derogatory sentiments. Rather it defines it as such: The disposition to mercy or compassion; clemency, mercy, mildness, tenderness. Tenderness and concern aroused by the suffering, distress, or misfortune of another, and prompting a desire for its relief; compassion, sympathy. (source: Oxford English Dictionary)
