Transcript

  • 1. Dis crimi nati on
  • 2. What is discrimination?
    • Unfair treatment of a person or group on the basis of prejudice
    • To treat differently on the basis of sex or race
    • Being biased or having a belief or attitude formed beforehand
  • 3. Your religion, race, height, nationality, and even your gender are factors that most people make quick judgments about. Unfortunately, many of these judments are based on biases and assumptions
  • 4. Racial Discrimination
    • In 2006, there were 1305 victims of hate crimes motivated by ethnicity/national origin. Of thouse, the large majority (819) were against Hispanics.
    • The most recent FBI Hate Crimes report reveals that in 2006, there were 5020 victims of racially motivated hate crimes. Of that, more than half (3332) were African Americans
  • 5. What is discrimination because of disability
    • It is against the law to discriminate against disabled people in various areas of their lives
    • Disability discrimination can either be direct or indirect:
    • Direct discrimination is where you are treated less favourably because of your disability than someone without a disability would be treated in the same circumstances
    • Indirect discrimination is where there is a rule policy or practice which seems to apply equally to everyone, but which actually puts disabled people at an unfair disadvantage compared with people who aren't disabled
  • 6. Religious Discrimination
    • Religious discrimination involves treating a person unfavorably because of his or her religious beliefs. The law protects not only people who belong to traditional, organized religions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism, but also others who have sincerely held religious, ethical or moral beliefs.
    • Religious discrimination can also involve treating someone differently because that person is married to (or associated with) an individual of a particular religion or because of his or her connection with a religious organization or group.
  • 7. Xenophobia
    • Xenophobia can manifest itself in many ways involving the relations and perceptions of an ingroup towards an outgroup, including a fear of losing identity, suspicion of its activities, aggression, and desire to eliminate its presence to secure a presumed purity. Xenophobia can also be exhibited in the form of an "uncritical exaltation of another culture" in which a culture is ascribed "an unreal, stereotyped and exotic quality".
    • Xenophobia is defined as the "hatred or fear of foreigners or strangers or of their politics or culture". It comes from the Greek words ξένος (xenos), meaning "stranger," "foreigner" and φόβος (phobos), meaning "fear."
  • 8. Homophobia Homophobia is the hatred or fear of homosexuals - that is, lesbians and gay men - sometimes leading to acts of violence and expressions of hostility. Homophobia is not confined to any one segment of society, and can be found in people from all walks of life. Organized hate groups have viciously attacked homosexuals and have used especially violent language in attempting to persecute and intimidate them .
