Exploring Cases of Ethnic and Racial Disparities in the United States of America and Nigeria

Oluseyi Aju, J. J. Orugun


Ethnicity and race cannot be easily ignored whilst discussing issues that shape modern society. They are intimately linked that is impossible, to write one adequately without discussing the other. This paper reviews extant theories and perspectives of ethnicity and race. Consequences of ethnic and racial inequalities (most especially in the United States, and some cases ethnic inequalities in Nigeria) were addressed. The paper concludes by stating that in order to minimize ethnic and racial discrimination, it is important to encourage and educate the people to embrace   diversity and multiculturalism, so that different ethnic and racial; groups can have a unique opportunity for individuals to experience and discuss the aspects of racial/ethnic diversity in their lives.  Affirmative action should also be taken to address different races and ethic group’s access to powers and privileges.
