Abstrak

A racial impact law is a tool that lawmakers use before adopting and implementing laws to assess the likelihood of disparities occurring under the proposed legislation. They help in detecting unforeseen policy consequences. Washington and Texas are among the states with some racial impact laws to help fight against racial discrimination. For Texas, they imposed the critical race theory where each public high school is required to have one teacher and one administrator have civic learning that will help in reducing the increased rate of racial segregation in schools. In Washington, through the Washington Law Against Discrimination (WLAD), Chapter 49.60 RCW law, they have reduced racial disparities, especially at the workplaces, despite the person's sex, religion, ethnicity, religion, or color. They have gone further to implement laws that hinder discrimination on hair color from ensuring fairness and equality within the state. These states have racial demographics where the Whites have dominated in both states. Other groups are represented within the states, thus the need for racial impact laws to ensure there is mitigation of discrimination of the minority groups. The racial impact laws apply to both states but differently depending on the legislature of that specific state. The racial impact laws have not been effective enough. Thus the legislation of the states and the federal government should engage in more research to ensure the existing racial discrimination across the country has been eradicated. The government should involve the public by teaching them civic education to make it easy to eliminate racial segregation.
