Following a week of tragic shootings and political uproar, many individuals may feel conflicted. The article below describes the results of surveys that were taken to obtain feedback on topics such as the Black Lives Matter movement, policing, voting, racial issues and race discrimination. The results of these polls provide some insight on how registered voters feel about the seriousness of discrimination against blacks, approval or disapproval of the Black Lives Matter Movement, whether use of deadly police force is affected by race, and confidence in leaders to make the right decisions when it comes to race relations in the U.S. Numerous political figures have spoken about race relations, racial discrimination in America, unity, and how to prevent future discrimination. Race relations continue to be at the forefront of national attention and will be a major factor in the upcoming 2016 general election. It is important to note that discrimination can and does affect individuals of all races in numerous settings, such as employment. Workers’ rights matter and labor lawyers hold employers accountable. Employees experiencing harassment or racism and discrimination on the job want to know their rights and should consider contacting an attorney or employment law firm in their area for help.
