  • Racism in wider society
    • Mason 2000 says that ' discrimination is a continuing and persistent feature of the experience of Britains citizens of minority ethnic origin"
    • Rex 1986 shows how racial discrimination leads to social exclusion
      • For example, in housing, discrimination means that minorities are likely to be forced into sub-standardised accommodation than white people of the same class
    • Wood et al 2010 sent 3 closely matched job applications to each of almost 1000 job vacancies. There was one white application and two from ethnic minority groups
      • Found that 1 in 16 ethnic minority applications were offered interviews, compared to 1 in 9 white applications
