Dealing With Racism

Researchers said that experiencing racism "at least a few times a year" is something the majority of Blacks experience: being treated with less courtesy or respect than other people (46 percent), receiving poorer service than other people at restaurants or stores (45 percent), people acting as if they think the respondent is not smart (40 percent), people acting as if they are afraid of the respondent (23 percent), or being threatened or harassed (16 percent).  (Photo: Image Source / Getty Images)
