2 Racism in my Community Even though racism is not present among all youths, racism is very present among youth in my community because of violence between rival racial gangs, and lack of education, and lack of youth programs. I was born in Fairbanks, Alaska, in 1974. In 1989 I moved to Hemet, California, with my mother. In 1998, seeking independence I moved to San Bernardino, California. I have live in San Bernardino for the past 12 years. San Bernardino County is also known as part of the inland empire. The Inland Empire is the 14th largest metropolitan area in the United States. The Inland Empire consists of two counties San Bernardino County and Riverside County. Population in the city of San Bernardino is more than two million (2,060,950) The Board of Supervisors County of San Bernardino (2010). The area of San Bernardino that I live in is of a rural setting with large acres where residents can raise horses, other livestock, nursery plants, and fruit trees. In my community there are several minority ethnic groups. San Bernardino’s population consists of Hispanics, Whites, Blacks, and Asians. I’am a White female. Some of the members in my community share the same features as I do, dark hair, dark eyes, and light skin. The dominant race in my community is Hispanic. Their facial features are of dark hair, dark eyes with darker skin. According to the 2010 San Bernardino County Community Indicator Report (Board of Supervisors County of San Bernardino, 2010). 48% of San Bernardino’s population is Hispanic, 35% are White, 8% are Black or African American, 6% are Asian, 1% Native Americans, and 2% report two or more races. Native American Indians from Cherokee, Chippewa, Navajo, Sioux, Chemehuevi Indian Tribe, San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, and Fort Mojave Indian Tribe. In some areas of San Bernardino segregated neighborhoods do exist.
