For general knowledge: Discrimination is treating, or proposing to treat, someone unfavourably because of a personal characteristic protected by the law. This includes bullying someone because of a protected characteristic.


 There are many types of discrimination such as the following:

Direct discrimination

Direct discrimination happens when someone is treated unfavourably because of a personal characteristic protected by the law. Direct discrimination often happens because people make unfair assumptions about what people with certain personal characteristics can and cannot do.


Indirect discrimination

Indirect discrimination occurs when an unreasonable requirement, condition or practice is imposed that disadvantages a person or group because of a personal characteristic.



If you’re treated badly because you complain about discrimination or you help someone who has been discriminated against, this is called victimisation.

How can you help prevent racism from occurring on campus?

Everyone can contribute to the eradication of racism on campus.

You can:

  • Promote mutual respect between individuals who come from different cultural backgrounds.
  • Openly support and promote the University's Anti-Racism policy.
  • If you observe racist behaviour speak up and name it for what it is.
  • Offer support to people who are being harassed.
  • If you are a supervisor, circulate information on the University's Anti-Racism policy and ensure that it is adhered to in your area.

After reading the types of discrimination, we will talk about one in particular. 

Race/Color Discrimination

Race discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because he/she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race (such as hair texture, skin color, or certain facial features). Color discrimination involves treating someone unfavorably because of skin color complexion.

Race/color discrimination also can involve treating someone unfavorably because the person is married to (or associated with) a person of a certain race or color.

Discrimination can occur when the victim and the person who inflicted the discrimination are the same race or color.
