Question and answer
Q: • Are there existing social inequities based on race?
A: Some people argue that there are. For instance, the fact that minorities are over-represented in prison cells compared to white people. [ Not in raw numbers per se, but proportionately. Some argue that it's because the white race is more protected, can afford better attorneys, are favored by judges, and that minorities are targeted in drug busts and gang membership arrests more often than
whites. Others argue that minorities actually commit more crime and have higher levels of gang membership and deal more drugs than whites. ]

User: • What do you believe to be the causes of racial prejudice and discrimination in today’s society?

Weegy: racial prejudice and discrimination. Ignorance. misunderstanding of cultures and customs. bad experiences. environment. all in all they coincide there is no ONE answer. Usually because they don't understand something (e.g. [ geisha), or someone from that culture was accused of doing something horrible and immediately everyone in that culture/religion was looked at differently (e.g. muslims). or some people are just really rude and like to laugh at how immigrants can't always speak really good english. which is stupid since a lot of people with english as their first language can't speak very good english. ]

User: • How do racial groups interact in contemporary America? Are interactions positive, negative, or neutral?

Weegy: It depends on who you are, what kind of a community you live in, and where you live. For me, it is always positive. I love diversity. For others, the thought of interacting with other races is revolting. [ But overall, I'd say a bit more positive than neutral. ]
