what it is and how it effects people.

Discrimination :

treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, aperson or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person orthing belongs rather than on individual merit:

racial and religious intolerance and discrimination.

there are different types of discrimination . one of them is racial.

An American Muslim woman, who was on U.S. President Barack Obama's list of "leading Muslim females" in the country, said she was discriminated against on Friday after a flight attendant allegedly refused to give her an unopened can of soda.

Age and health:

The 2016 Budget Resolution, passed by both the House and the Senate, paves the way to radically restructure Medicaid, making deep cuts that will reverse the progress made in reducing the rate of uninsured children, pushing tens of millions of Americans -- including millions of children -- into the ranks of the uninsured and underinsured. The Budget Resolution also puts in motion a process to repeal the ACA, which prohibits discrimination against the 129 million children and adults with pre-existing health conditions, helps over 5 million uninsured 18-26 year olds now covered under parental insurance plans, and extends Medicaid coverage to age 26 for some youths leaving foster care. More than 10 million near poor adults, including many parents, in the twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia that have expanded their Medicaid rolls under the ACA will lose Medicaid coverage as a result.


There are still many types of discrimination thst i havent covered and all of it happens all over the word and we should try to stop it as much as we can to be equal.
