Racial conflicts are everywhere, but they are a special problem in the United States, where people of
different racial, religious, and national backgrounds live together in close proximity. Racial prejudice
and discrimination are often the source of these conflicts, as one group will view another group in a
negative way and treat them unfairly. Discrimination is often based on distrust and misunderstanding
that culminates in stereotyping.

Keywords: Racial Conflicts, Discriminations, Identity, Power Paradox
