Social issues are a major problem in our society. One of these major problems is residential segregation. Are we really treated equally? If people were treated equally there would be no ghettos. Money plays a major role in where people reside. If colored people are denied access of higher incomes and better education, their chances of living in better, safe neighborhoods is limited. Segregation takes people and separates them, colored people who live in places like ghettos have reputations that affect how they are perceived in society. As the minority group in America’s population, citizens of color have experienced a long history of denial--of jobs, education, health care, and especially access to adequate and affordable housing.
