HUD will try to reach an agreement with the person your complaint is against (the respondent). A conciliation agreement must protect both you and the public interest. If an agreement is signed, HUD will take no further action on your complaint. However, if HUD has reasonable cause to believe that a conciliation agreement is breached, HUD will recommend that the Attorney General file suit.

Having considered the reports of States parties to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women,
Newer reports by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission have found that less than 10% of race-related complaints were filed by whites, only 18% of gender-related complaints and only 4% of the court cases were filed by men. Analysis of other evidence shows that when national samples of whites are asked if they personally have experienced the loss of job, promotion, or college admission because of their race, 2%-13% say yes. 
CEDAW 41st Session
will be held from 30 June - 18 July 2008
1640s, "the making of distinctions," from Late Latin discriminationem (nominative discriminatio ), noun of action from past participle stem of discriminare (see discriminate ). Especially in a prejudicial way, based on race, 1866, American English. Meaning "discernment" is from 1814. It especially annoys me when racists are accused of 'discrimination.' The ability to discriminate is a precious facility; by judging all members of one 'race' to be the same, the racist precisely shows himself incapable of discrimination. [Christopher Hitchens]
