Racial discrimination in the U.S.

 The “Report on Human Rights Violations in the United States in 2020” published by the Information Office of the State Department on the 24th pointed out that racial discrimination in the United States has worsened the situation of minorities.

The report emphasizes that in the United States, racism is comprehensive, systemic, and continuous.

The report pointed out that since the outbreak of the coronavirus, Asian Americans have been humiliated and even attacked in public, and some American politicians have deliberately misled them. A survey of young Asian Americans revealed that in the past year, one in four Asian Americans became targets of racial bullying.

The report emphasizes that the violent law enforcement by the US police has led to frequent deaths of African Americans. Statistics show that in 2020, the US police shot and killed 1,127 people. African Americans account for only 13% of the total population of the United States, but they account for 28% of the number of people killed by police. African Americans are three times more likely to be killed by police than whites. From 2013 to 2020, about 98% of the police involved in the case were not charged with a crime, and the number of convicted police officers was even rarer.

In addition, the report also claims that the rights of American Indians have been violated, hate crimes remain high, highlighting the deterioration of race relations, people of color face more serious unemployment threats, racial discrimination in the workplace is deep-rooted, and inequality between races has further increased.
