Yes and yes.

It might not happen "officially", but effectively that is what happens.

I know several people out of work. All of the black people have
benefits, even though one of them doesn't meet the requirements.

Only one of the white boys can get anything.

Nothing is written down that says this outside of a few "extra" laws for
minorities, but it happens anyway.

People try to say it isn't true, but that's because they've never
experienced it.
