In the United States race plays a major part in society today. We live in a world where we are judge because, of the color of our skin and not our character or the person that we are in the inside instead, of what shows on the outside.

The relationship between my dependent variable and my independent variable shows that 20.7 % whites were picked up and charged by police 23.6% of blacks and 22.6 % was other race that were reported in the study were picked up or charged by police.

In the study the Chi Square shows that there was no statistically difference between race and the likelihood of being arrested. They degree of freedom is 2 in the Chi Square and the p-values
