The State of Racial Disparities in Charleston County, South Carolina 2000–2015 continues the conversation on race and racism in this region by using a racial equity lens. In recent years, a racial equity lens has been used in many fields to identify injustice and structural barriers people of color face in education, employment, housing, health care, and even philanthropy. At the same time, using a racial equity lens is essential to the creation of a fair and just society. This report specifically identifies policies, practices, and structural arrangements of power that maintain a social environment where black residents are overwhelmingly impacted by pervasive inequities in education, employment, housing and gentrification, public health, policing, and racialized violence. The findings in this report paint a bleak picture of intrinsic obstacles black residents face daily, making it virtually impossible to break free of cycles of poverty, criminalization, and incarceration.
