Racial equality occurs when institutions give equal opportunity to people of all races. In other words, institutions ignore peoples' racial physical traits or skin color, and give everyone legally, morally, and politically equal opportunities. In Western society today, there is more diversity and more integration among races. Initially, attaining equality has been difficult for African, Asian, and Latino people, especially in schools. However, in the United States, racial equality, has become a law that regardless of what race an individual is, they will receive equal treatment, opportunity, education, employment, and politics.
