What is Race Discrimination?
Race discrimination is when someone (a person or business) treats someone else unfavorably because they are of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race.
Discrimination may also involve treating someone unfavorably because the person is married to (or associated with) a person of a certain race or color.
Some people are surprised to learn that discrimination can occur when the victim and the person who inflicted the discrimination are the same race or color.
What Types of Cases Involve Discrimination?
Race discrimination can arise in a variety of cases and contexts. However, the three most common instances include when:
- Racial discrimination takes place in the workforce and impacts any aspect of the victim’s employment (including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, and any other term or condition of employment)
- A person is the victim of racial slurs, offensive or derogatory remarks, and some display of racially offensive symbols
- The discrimination violates one of the victim’s civil rights
