Description

This article looks at experiences of racism reported by adults in the Municipality of Anchorage who responded to questions in the 2009 Anchorage Community Survey (ACS). The ACS questionnaire included questions about race/ethnicity and Hispanic/Latino background, and questions about the experience of racism in nine different situations: while shopping; while at work; while at school; while renting or attempting to rent housing; while buying or attempting to buy housing; in a health care situation; from police; from a judge, lawyer, or other member of the justice system; or from members of local and/or state government. About one-third of all respondents answered Yes to one of the nine racism questions.
