(1. A ) Statistics taken from (https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2021/03/18/majorities-of-americans-see-at-least-some-discrimination-against-black-hispanic-and-asian-people-in-the-u-s/ (Links to an external site.)) show that:
46% of Americans would say that Black people face “a lot” of discrimination
30% of Americans noted that Hispanics receive “a lot” of discrimination
27% Americans said Asians receive “a lot” of discrimination
Reflecting on these numbers… Why are these percentages so different? What are some ways that Asians face “a lot” of discrimination in our society today?
