Racial discrimination persists in the US - mediaSeveral US cities have experienced new protests over the decision not to charge a white policeman who killed a black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri."Our analysis shows that discrimination and police violence are rampant throughout the country," writes the German edition Spiegel."The division of American society is evident through the following answer: four out of five African Americans believe that the fatal accident in Missouri is associated with the skin color of the victim. At the same time, only 37% of white Americans agree with this statement," Spiegel writes, referring to data of the Pew Research Center."85% of African-Americans say that during their contacts with the police they experience a discriminatory attitude, while in the 1960s this was noted by only 76%," the newspaper writes, admitting, though, that such evaluations can be very biased."Given the ethnic composition of the population of Ferguson, it is clear that black residents are disproportionately frequently subjected to checks by traffic police compared to their white counterparts," writes Spiegel, citing official data of the General Prosecutor's Office of Missouri.
