TREATMENT OR CONSIDERATION OF, OR MAKING A DISTINCTION IN FAVOR OF OR AGAINST, A PERSON OR THING BASED ON THE GROUP, CLASS, OR CATEGORY TO WHICH THAT PERSON OR THING BELONGS RATHER THAN ON INDIVIDUAL MERIT Discrimination
Types of Discrimination Race Age Weight Economic Religion Gender
Racism Racism is treating a person differently because of the color of their skin, of the culture or country they’re from.
Agism Treating people differently because they are older or younger than you think they should be.
Weight and Economic We treat people differently if they don’t have the things they need, if they dress in old, dirty clothes, or if they live in a smaller, run- down house.
Religion Gender We say that a person can’t do something because they’re a girl or because they’re a boy. Sometimes men make more money just because they’re men. Religion and Gender
