Basically, because of the color of your skin or ethnicity, you are not treated the same as the majority. Ethnicity is not race. Racial discrimination is when one's apparen…t race is included as a major factor in a public decision - in employment, politics, taxes, criminal or civil trials, access to public facilities.
Racial segregation is when two races (examples of races are black, white, Mexican, Asian, etc.) are separated in everything they do. We once had a segregation between whites a…nd blacks in America. They were separated in schools, restrooms, water fountains, parts of a bus (look up Rosa Parks for more info on that), and just about everything in life we do.
some racial groups are superior to others

Racial segregation is the splitting and isolation of two different races. For example, in America during the 1800s and early to mid 1900s, white people ate a different restaur…ants than black people, which is an example of racial segregation.
Racial segregation in the United States , as a general term, included the racial segregation of facilities, services, and opportunities such as housing, medical care, educatio…n, employment, and transportation along racial lines. The expression refers primarily to the legally or socially enforced separation of African Americans from other races, but can more loosely refer to voluntary separation, and also to separation of other racial or ethnic minorities from the majority mainstream society and communities. Racial segregation in the United States has meant the physical separation and provision of separate facilities (especially during the Jim Crow era), but it can also refer to other manifestations of racial discrimination such as separation of roles within an institution, such as the United States Armed Forces up to the 1950s when black units were typically separated from white units but were led by white officers. Racial segregation in the United States can be divided into de jure and de facto segregation. De jure segregation, sanctioned or enforced by force of law, was stopped by federal enforcement of a series of Supreme Court decisions after with Brown vs. Board of Education in 1954. The process of throwing off legal segregation in the United States lasted through much of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s when civil rights demonstrations resulted in public opinion turning against enforced segregation. De facto segregation --- segregation "in fact" --- persists to varying degrees without sanction of law to the present day. The contemporary racial segregation seen in America in residential neighborhoods has been shaped by public policies, mortgage discrimination and redlining among other things.
if u are reading this u are being lazy open a text book and start reading lazy
Yes and no. Yes because racial discrimination and segregation were not always as overt as they were in the southern states but no because both discrimination and segregation w…ere still very present. While many Southern people looked upon anyone with black skin with utter contempt, many Northerners treated slaves and free blacks like children. Many believed that black people were not as intelligent as white people and thus things had to be dumbed down for them. Don't be misguided though; there was plenty of racist whites in the North who were in favor of slavery every bit as much as Southern whites. The difference was they weren't necessarily in the majority.
