User: • Are there existing social inequities based on race? Why or why not?

Weegy: Yes Children of color, who include those identifying as African American/black, Latino, and Asian or Pacific Islander, [ constitute ?30% of the US population and are among the fastest growing populations in the country. ?Social inequality? describes societies in which specific groups do not have equal social status based on ethnicity, gender, or other characteristics. ?Racial discrimination? is a form of social inequality that includes experiences resulting from legal and nonlegal systems of discrimination. These systems of discrimination create dominant and secondary social groups that differ in levels of power (political, economic, social, and personal) and access to goods and services (eg, medical care and services) in the society. Racial discrimination may occur at personal (eg, individual exposure to prejudice and racial discrimination) and institutional (eg, discrimination in housing and education) levels. Although exposure to personal racial discrimination has characterized and influenced life options for many children of color in the United States, racial discrimination at the institutional level is the primary cause of group differences in material conditions (eg, poverty, education, employment, and access to medical care) and power (eg, access to information, control of media, and political and economic influence). Institutional racism is structural in that it has been codified in the society's institutions, customs, and laws. Exposure to personal and institutional racial discrimination, particularly when discrimination is legal, may foster high stress levels (ie, external circumstances that challenge or obstruct) that are consistently related to poor health outcomes for secondary social group members Source(s): ]

User: aree there existing social inequities based on race? Why or why not?

Weegy: 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. ]
