What is it discrimination?
Discrimination is a form of passive; becoming, at times, a physical assault violence.
Those who discriminate designated lower or differential treatment in terms of rights
and social considerations of individuals, organizations and States. Make this
difference either by the color of skin, ethnicity, sex, age, culture, religion or
Individuals who discriminate have a distorted view of the essence of the man and
attributed to characteristics or virtues that placed them one step above. Since that
"height" can judge to the rest of the individuals by qualities that not make to the
essence of these.
Many times this rejection manifests itself with:
Hateful looks with the lack of acceptance in public places, jobs or schools.
Intolerance, rejection and ignorance are determinants for the birth of
discriminatory conduct.
Popular beliefs can become hatred.
Individuals who are affected by these classifications are not valued by
virtues but by secondary characteristics that do not determine its qualities as
a human being. These examples are cruel and unfair but are classic within
our society.
