Many individuals feel that America has made huge strides in combating race discrimination. Meanwhile, some people in Texas and other areas of the country feel that race discrimination remains a huge problem. New research echoes the latter opinion, showing that a large number of people view race relations as requiring major improvement throughout the country.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 made it unlawful to discriminate based on national origin, sex, religion, color or race. This applied to public buildings, schools and workplaces. However, some individuals say that race continues to be the foremost area of concern.
