There are numerus individuals who believe that they are living in a post racial society in the United States today and that seems to be true in certain parts of life. However, race is an essential barrier that puts great impact on minority people through their experiences in the United States. In 2010, about “41% of the U.S. population identified themselves as members of racial or ethnic minority groups” (National Healthcare Quality and Disparities). According to the Centers for Disease Control, minorities get unequal level of “preventable disease, death, and disability” than non-minorities. Quality of healthcare is something that everyone regardless of their race should have access to. Yet, many researches show the presence of great inequities in healthcare because of one’s race. Racial bias in healthcare has been an issue throughout history and it continues to these days within the overall quality of healthcare that minorities receive.
