Racism in the Workforce Many people today go to work to make money for their family or themselves. Going to work can sometimes relate from going to high school when dealing with other types of people because of all the diversity. Bullying then occurs because of the certain type of race or culture and this happens everywhere. The workforce will have racist folks because that’s how imbalance the system is in America. Everyone intends to talk about each other’s characteristics based on simple observations, especially at work.

Not just that they have a lower education but they also work harder than most Americans. The other races other than white does not get acknowledged as much. They get pay less than what they are supposed to make, but they don’t know that and the white managers take advantage of their lesser knowledge.

Caucasians can’t help to see the equality blacks and any other race have with them when they use to see them lower than whites. They seem to have that grudge that they hold within themselves to being greedy about why they think they are the top race.
