Many minorities in the United States have continued to complain about being treated more harshly than whites and the Department of Justice believes that racial profiling and police discrimination will continue to be a big problem. Critics of policing say that police officers discriminate against minorities because they see them as second-class citizens, stating that many officers are white and drawn from some conservative section of the community. Predisposition, preformed opinions about groups of individuals that may lead to racist attitudes within the police, and socialization are major roles in the formation of racist attitudes within policing. Socialization is the influences of parents, families, peers, and the community in training individuals about the norms, rules, and customs of a locality with an aim to compel
Black people are a “racialized group that are singled out for unequal treatment on the basis of real or imagined physical characteristics” (Naiman.240) proven by the Black Lives Matter campaign. Racism against blacks is prominent in the work force where racism continues to be a sad reality.

Racism is continually an obstacle, especially in the job market, for blacks in today’s society.

This results in social exclusion and does not necessarily enable interactions with people who do not fall within that certain area or group. Black self-segregation may happen because people feel comfortable living around and close to those of their own race, thus, they move to majority-black areas. “Using U.S. Census data, the researchers were able to track the demographics of neighborhoods moved to and from.
