Martin, Jr., Waldo E., and Patricia Sullivan, eds. "Racism." Civil Rights In The United States. 2nd ed. 2 vols. New York: Macmillan Library Reference USA, 2000. 625-30.

The author notes that racism is based on different categorizations. The first and most obvious difference is sex; followed by appearance, such as ethic group. When people think of ethnic racism a couple of groups come to mind: Chinese, Arabic, African, Indian, Irish, Jewish, Russian, and Armenian. Also the author mentions that the definition of racism is similar to Charles Darwin in Origin of Species (1859). The author also mentions that different disease are related to race such as hypertension, prostate cancer, and heart disease are most commonly found in African Americans. Overall this source is very useful because it covers the general ideas of racism and gives a great starting point.

In this article by Toni Morrison she states that back when immigrants first came to America almost every race besides African Americans had the chance of living the “American Dream”. When Greek immigrants came to America they had a chance of finding a job, based on their physical appearance. She also mentions that back during that time stability were whites and disorder was blacks.  This article talks more about the challenges African Americans faced over immigrants; which is not relative to my topic, but it is good background information.

This article first starts off with a quote from Dr. W.E.B. Dubois,” Here in lie buried many things which if read with patience may show the strange meaning of being Black here in the dawning of the 20th century.

It also mentions that Hitler’s act against the Jewish people and America keeping African Americans enslaved for a long time are two major racist events in history.

Restaurants such as The Waffle House and Denny’s face similar charges.29,000 people complained to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 2003 for bias in the workplace.
