The paper reveals the results of surveys that illustrate how many believe racism to be a prevalent problem in their environments. The paper addresses the issue of racial profiling and how racism has shifted to whoever is visibly different in appearance. In addition, the paper demonstrates how institutionalized both racism and economic inequities are.

The interesting thing about these survey results is that most people are not talking about being exposed to racism, but are inherently convinced that racism in America still exists to a large extent.
