Discrimination based on race-related characteristics is also prohibited. This includes making discriminatory decisions on the basis of immutable race characteristics such as ancestry, skin color, hair color or ethnic characteristics. Race discrimination may also include subtle actions such as requiring job and intelligence tests, racially motivated appearance and dress codes, and discriminatory recruiting practices. Discrimination may also involve racial harassment such as employees making racial slurs without the knowledge of company management.
According to the recent survey, 48% of African Americans say they were the victim of race discrimination, compared to roughly one-third of Asians and Latinos.
