Racism and racial discrimination include racist ideology, settings, based on racial prejudices, discriminatory conduct, structural organization and institutionalize practice, resulting in racial inequality, and also idea that similar relations between groups are justified from the moral and scientific points of view; show up in a discriminating legislation and practice.
Most Americans are concerned about the existence of racial discrimination in the country. As evidenced by the results of public opinion poll conducted by broadcaster CNN and Research Service, "Opinion Risech" released on Sunday, 74% of Americans have expressed concern because of discrimination against "colored" people.
The survey involved more than one thousand adult residents throughout the country. The study was conducted against the backdrop of an emerging mass campaigns against injustice and police brutality. It was triggered by the murder of a 17-year-old African-American Trayvon Martin in Florida.
On November, 20th, 1963 General Assembly accepted Declaration of UNO about liquidation of all forms of racial discrimination. In a preamble Declarations were acknowledged that, in spite of the attained progress, discrimination, based on a race, color of skin or ethnic origin, continues to cause a serious concern.
Racism - one of the most important problems of inequality of the American society. From the moment of the basis and till now the USA were not able to resolve this problem. But if you have the us passport, the relation to you will be almost as to the aboriginal.
In the article I of Declaration principles of Charter of UNO and Universal declaration of human rights and their fundamental value for maintenance of friendly international relations are again confirmed:
«Discrimination in regard to people on the sign of race, colors of skin or ethnic origin is trenching upon dignity of human personality and reprobated as a denial of principles, worded in Regulation of United Nations Organization, as violation of human rights and basic freedoms, proclaimed in Universal declaration of human rights, as obstacle to maintenance of friendly and peaceful relations between the states and as a circumstance, which can violate the international peace and security».
It is no secret that the issue of discrimination in the modern society is burning, as well as the ways to fight it. Many people hearing the word "discrimination" imagine immediately something negative, but you must first understand what it is. The word itself has Latin roots and means "distinction". That is a personal attitude to any distinctive features of another person, in fact discrimination does not necessarily relate to politics. At least that word can be assigned to "condemn" or "rejection". Such discrimination has become a normal phenomenon in society.
