observations are supported by the everyday experience of racially profiled Americans in their effort to live comfortable lives and pursue the careers of their choice. Since this research project addresses racial discrimination as a social pressure that leads to anxiety and stress in adults pursuing their careers, it is essential to provide empirical evidence that will help create awareness among American adults. A study by Forbes and Schmader (2010) found that the effect of stereotyping increases rapidly with age. Moreover, adults from stigmatized groups tend to be more aware of broadly held stereotypes compared from a young age compared to those from non-stigmatized groups. In line with these findings, there is a correlation between the stereotype threat and the factors that adults consider when making their career decisions. The issues raised by this discussion of the stereotype threat pose questions that this particular study aims to answer: Is race a boundary for human beings’ experiences, relationships, and emotions? Do individuals from discriminated social groups become more vigilant by being the victims of constant negative stereotypes? To handle the stress that results from racial stereotyping, do American adults who aim to pursue their careers learn to be more ignorant of the activities and situations that lead to stereotyping? These questions, in addition to the concerns raised by racial identity theories, describe the emotional response of individuals from discriminated groups to perceived and actual racism.
