Descriptive Outline
Step 1:
I have definitely been a victim of racial inequality and I try to get over it from time to time but it hurts in
some cases. People have said certain comments to me just because of my race, for example you should
know that because youre black. I dont get how you can know something because youre black or any
other race just doesnt make any sense to me. In society there is socioeconomic inequality as well and it
has definitely affected people that I know in life. For example I have certain family members that have
not gotten jobs because of their race in the past five years. I feel like we have strived in society so much
but were still not at that point where we should be at where it doesnt matter what race you are or how
much money you make.

Step 2:
Racial inequality affects many people all over the world. Some people have better opportunities just
because of their race, but why is that? In society some people treat and look at some people differently
and that affects peoples emotions and the way they act in society. When there is racial inequality in
society that leads to socioeconomic inequality and that affects minorities and how they make money in
society. The study The Unfinished March shows that African Americans are still twice as likely to be
unemployed as whites and that in America there is a lot of schools that are segregated. Why is that it is
three times more likely for an African American to be arrested than a white man. The problem is that
many African Americans dont have the same opportunities in schools or in the workforce than many
Caucasian people.
In 2010, 74.1% of black children attended majority nonwhite schools. Similarly, 45% of poor
black children were found to live in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty, compared to 12% of poor
white children. The disparity extends beyond employment and geography separation. Studies have
shown that the average black familys wealth has stagnated while white familys wealth has increased.
Residential segregation has shown that it has affected many African Americans in buying homes and
having substantial amount of equity. The Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society
and finds himself an exile in his own land.

Step 3:
Racial inequalities have manifested in America society in ways ranging from racial disparities in wealth,
poverty rates, housing patterns, educational opportunities, and unemployment rates. There is a large
gap between the wealth of minority households and white households in the United States. A shown
study has shown that a black household has around 5,376 in wealth, and a typical Hispanic has around
6,325 in wealth and the average white household has around 113,000.

In the past, it is true that African American have suffered injustice, however, today there are
still some wounds that needs healing from harsh treatment black people experience from whites people
back during the civil right movement. Now, some whites are in positions where they are able to use
their authority and demand unnecessary respect from minorities in certain situations, just so they could
be in control. How is that right? Since our countrys inception, race based barriers have hindered our
fulfillment of our shared values and many of these barriers persist today. In 2000 after a remarkable
period of economic prosperity, the poverty rate among African Americans and Latino Americans was 2.6
times greater than whites. As shown in studies reductions in poverty do not inevitably close the racial
inequality gaps, nor do they reach all ethnic communities equally. In addition poor people are more
likely than whites to find themselves living in high poverty neighborhoods with limited resources and
limited options. These numbers are troubling not because living among poor people is somehow
harmful in itself, but because concentrated high-poverty communities are far more likely to be cut off
from quality schools, housing, health care, and other pathways out of poverty.

Step 4:
Racial inequality is all around the world to your job, housing, education, and just walking on the
street it is everywhere. People need to understand we need to change together in order for us to
change socially, politically, and economically. When this change occurs society will as a whole will
become a better place and as a whole we will be more productive. This of course will not be an easy
change but we have come very far in our society and I feel like we can get past anything as a whole. In
*+addition we need better teachers in our education system to lead students to strive in life in general.
Step 5:
I dont get how some people treat other people like this just because of their race and how much money
they make. Society needs to change immediately or it will just keep getting worse and worse. Kids
around the world should not be learning different things in school but in the United States kids have
different opportunities in criteria and classes as well. If people have a different education around the
world how is the economy supposed to grow and strive. In class I learned that minorities would be
charged differently in certain cases of housing and talked to differently just because of their race. For
example telling them $200 more than the original price or just not giving them a room even if theres a
room thats available. Hopefully if our education system gets better such as the criteria for everyone
maybe that will lead to more opportunities in the workforce. Its to the point now where we changed so
much over the years to this point but were not at where should be at. Also when it comes down to it
people of every race, color, or how much money you should always be treated with respect and equal
among all citizens.
