Most of the organizations in United States are reluctant to hire African Americans as they are perceived as being unsuitable for their jobs.

There are many factors pertaining to the environment, which play a very influential role while people, are seeking job opportunities. While looking at the data, it can be seen that most of the employment agencies in United States were against few ethnic origins like African American and blacks.
