CHALLENGES ENCOUNTERED WHEN TRYING TO CURB SEXUAL & RACIAL DISCRIMINATION AT WORKPLACES.

In the workplace, racial profiling is a very big part of our daily workforce. It may fall under the following on the basis of a person’s race, religion and/or ethnicity: • Failing or refusing to hire an employee; • Firing or disciplining an employee; • Providing fewer benefits, promotions, opportunities
However, LGBT discrimination (e.g., employment discrimination) is still an ongoing social issue. Various literatures exist to support the argument that sexual minorities are disadvantaged and subject to employment discrimination. This arises from the negative stereotypes and heterosexual dominance, which is linked to poor psychological well-being. According to Mize (2016), the vulnerable group experiences different forms of workplace discrimination such as, job rejection and termination. Other studies have reiterated this finding and expanded the list to include: verbal harassments (e.g., threats, negative comments, and inappropriate jokes), physical harassments, sexual harassments, denial of promotions, and untrue performance appraisals.

The stigma towards women consists of very general stereotypes that undermine their capabilities and strength. Margaret Mead
I picked a different store to shop at since I knew I would be breaking social norms and did not want people who see me twice a week to wonder why I was acting out of the ordinary. Upon arriving I did what I always do first, grabbed my shopping cart. This time however, I decided to begin pushing it backwards throughout the entire store. The first few minutes no one around me seemed to notice until I made it down the canned goods isle. There were two women and one male all separately shopping for their necessities.
For instance even when they attend an interview session, the questions that are asked is discriminated by the employers. The discrimination that is carried out by the employer can lead to go against to protect human right as well. A study had shown that many of those who are already in the workforce are facing discrimination in all their lives (Korff, 2015). It happens very often in the workplace till the individuals actually get prone to the discrimination until they stop to react because they are to use to the behavior of the employers gives them.

The American couple are unable to take care of the two children following the shooting. The nanny had been forced by all the circumstances to take prolonged care of the children, so she takes them with her to her son 's wedding in Mexico. When returning, after a night of wedding, she is arrested a border guard and an immigration officer, each one callous, disrespectful, gratuitous demeaning to the harmless middle aged nanny, and discovered to be an illegal worker, and deported to Mexico. The nanny, like the old Moroccan peasant, is powerless and therefore contemptible, subject to whatever abuse of the state representative, which are more powerful than them. Also because she is with American children and she is Mexican they want to automatically control her and they are not polite with her and the reason why she is arrested is because she was forced and obliged to take the children with her to the wedding because there were not other solutions and the parents due to the shooting were not in state and concerned of what happened at home and she just wanted to be helpful and to do not let them to anybody.
Being the only one who knows English in her family, she is in charge of the administrative work of Diana Layer Cakes such as taking the reservations and answering to any queries from customers.

Also showed in several studies that these groups of people (LGBT members) are most likely hesitant in reporting the crime committed against them because they think that police officers will also treat them differently (Berrill & Herek, 1992; Comstock, 1989; Finn & McNeil, 1987; Gross et al., 1988) due to the perception of fear of being unsympathetically approached (Berrill & Herek, 1992). According to the previous research, victimization on gay men is high on physical violence than lesbians do. Gays are also more victimized in their identified areas, whereas lesbian are more often victimized in or near their homes (Aurand, Addessa, & Bush, 1985; Comstock, 1989; Gross, Aurand, & Addessa, 1988; LeBlanc, 1991). In New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle they began to implement to recruit and build programs that focuses to target about the common problems of gay men and lesbians including those bisexual and transgender; and these programs are to respond to the complaints of LGBT members about victimization against them to emphasized closer ties between officers and districts they served (Gates, Carroll, & Smith, 1986; Harris, 1991; Purdum,
