What is it?
Discrimination is often the outcome of prejudice—a pre-formed negative judgment or attitude. Prejudice leads people to view certain individuals or groups as inferior.
It is very important that you realize that the world is a very big place and there are humans living in many other places, very far from you. Because of that, people do things differently and are brought up differently. That means what you think is cool may not be so for another person, because of where they come from. Being different is a good thing. Can you imagine if every human was just like you?
Learn to appreciate diversity and respect people who are different in any way. People may be disabled, transgender, dark-skin or have a different hair color. No one chose to be that way. If even people choose to believe or join specific groups, they have a right to belong and a right to believe what they want. We MUST learn to respect that, just as you would like others to respect you for who you are.
DISCRIMINATION IN THE WORKPLACE
An example we notice in everyday life is salary differences! There are often obvious salary differences among across genders and race groups.
We can see that wage inequalities occur prominently along race and gender lines. We can also see that men earn more than women on average, and Whites earn more than Blacks and Hispanics regardless of gender.
