The surprising thing is that it's a headline that will take many non-Latinos by surprise.

National Public Radio (NPR) has been working on a project called “You, Me and Them: Experiencing Discrimination In America.” Partnering alongside the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, this project highlights the negative effects that discrimination has on a person’s health. As part of their study, Latinos were researched and participated in a poll about discrimination experiences  – NPR released their findings on Wednesday: One in Three Latinos Faced Discrimination In The U.S.

Searching for a job, an apartment, or just simply having equal pay doesn’t come quite as easily to Latinos in the U.S. According to the research, 37 percent of those who were surveyed said that they have experienced racial or ethnic slurs. More specifically, 25 percent of Latinas say they have even experienced discrimination inside a doctor’s office or health clinic.

One in three Latinos reported they’ve faced discrimination when applying for jobs, searching for a house or apartment, and even when being considered for promotions.
