Racial Profiling Causes Poor Resource Distribution

In the United States, businesses with five or fewer employees make up 92 percent of all businesses. Yet, these small businesses often do not have access to resources and finances needed to sustain themselves, much less expand. African American communities specifically are more vulnerable to income insecurity, racial profiling from banks, and infrastructure disinvestment.
