Racial Discrimination

What exactly is Racial Discrimination?

Racial Discrimination is a discrimination of somebody's race which is illegal. Racial Discrimination occurs everywhere and is a conflict in the United states because it can lead to depression and suicidal thoughts. Racial Discrimination is judging someone poorly based on the color of their skin which is how they were born.
