Racial segregation

Nature:

Segregation on racial grounds in education, employment, housing, before the law or in public services, may be a matter of government policy (South Africa) or of custom and general practice. Racial segregation preserves racial conflict, prejudices and discrimination, lack of integration, lack of social mobility, and inequalities.

Incidence:

The phenomenon of racial segregation has appeared in all parts of the world where there are bi-racial communities, except where racial amalgamation has occurred on a large scale, as in Hawaii and Brazil. The problem of racial segregation is most acute in South Africa.
