Race and Sex Discrimination Report

One out of five workers in the U.S. claims that racial or ethnic discrimination exists in the workplace, according to a national survey by Hudson. 

According to report, employees say that they know of someone who has been denied a job, increased pay or promotion because of their ethnicity. That figure jumps to 31 percent for African-American workers, yet drops to 18 percent among white employees.

Here is a table from the report:
