NPR takes a deep dive into discrimination in America.
Race. Ethnicity. Sexuality. Gender.
You have an identity in each of these categories. So what do your cohorts
have to say about how your own groups are treated in the United States?
Our new series, “You, Me And Them: Experiencing Discrimination In America
explores the results of a poll we conducted with the Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

spoke with African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Latino Americans, Native
Americans and white Americans, and members of the LGBTQ community. A
majority of each group said they believe discrimination against their own
group exists today. They were also asked about their personal experiences
with discrimination in various aspects of life, such as interacting with
the police, applying for jobs or going to the doctor.How Black Americans
respondents reported having different kinds of experiences with
discrimination, which varied considerably depending on things like gender,
age and where they lived. For example, younger people were more likely to
say that they felt that institutional discrimination was a bigger concern
than discrimination from individuals.
