China releases report on human rights abuses in the United States of America (4)

4. Social inequalities intensified by leaving racial discrimination to itself

In the United States, racial discrimination against Asian-Americans and Islamic natives still exists, the economic gulf between races widens ceaselessly and racial inequalities grow day by day.

According to the report issued by an organization on November 18 2021, a total of 10 370 racial assault cases were committed against people of Asian origin between March 19 2020 and September 30 2021.

The New York City police agency clarified that the hate crimes against the Asians increased by 261 percent in the city in 2021 as compared to that in 2020.

On September 9 2021, the Bloomberg news agency of the US reported that the cases of racial discrimination against Muslims had kept increasing in the US for 20 years since the September 11 terrorist attack.

The United States has a long history of having infringed on the rights of the natives and the natives like Indians have suffered from bloody massacre, barbarous banishment and culture obliteration.

Though Indians are suffering from all manner of pains caused by diseases and poverty during the spread of COVID-19, they have systematically been neglected.

British newspaper The Guardian reported on April 24 2020 that the death and infection rates of the Indians were the more serious as compared to others in view of population percentage.

Systematic economic inequalities have long existed between ethnic minorities and the white in the US, and this has been revealed in such aspects as employment, income and financial loaning.

According to the website of USA Today on July 30 in 2021, the Gallup poll reported that 59 percent of Americans admitted that descendants of ethnic minorities found it hard to get equal job opportunities.

CNN reported on July 15 last year that 17 percent of African-American families could not access the essential financial service and their number is nearly 16 times that of white families.
