In what ways are black people being treated fairly and in what ways are black people being treated unfairly now?

Racial segregation is the separation of different racial groups in daily life, such as eating in a restaurant, drinking from a drinking fountain, using a rest room, attending school, going to the movies, or in the rental or purchase of a home.[1] Segregation may be mandated by law or exist through social norms. Segregation may be maintained by means ranging from discrimination in hiring and in the rental and sale of housing to certain races to vigilante violence such as lynchings;[citation needed] a situation that arises when members of different races mutually prefer to associate and do business with members of their own race would usually be described as separation or de facto separation of the races rather than segregation. In the USA, legal segregation was required in some states and came with "anti-miscegenation laws" (prohibitions against interracial marriage).[citation needed] There were laws passed against segregation in the USA in the 1960s. Segregation in hiring practices contributes to economic imbalance between the races[citation needed]. Segregation, however, often allowed close contact in hierarchical situations, such as allowing a person of one race to work as a servant for a member of another race. Segregation can involve spatial separation of the races, and/or mandatory use of different institutions, such as schools and hospitals by people of different races.
