New Year- Same Racism
The largest poll of its kind conducted to date, “Discrimination in America” focuses on personal experiences with discrimination across more than a dozen areas of daily life.
- Nearly half (45%) of African Americans experienced racial discrimination when trying to rent an apartment or buy a home.
- 18% of Asian Americans say they have experienced discrimination when interacting with police. Indian-Americans are much more likely than Chinese-Americans to report unfair police stops or treatment.
- Nearly 1 in 5 Latinos have avoided medical care due to concern of being discriminated against or treated poorly.
- 41% of women report being discriminated against in equal pay and promotion opportunities.
