As humans, we will inevitably make a mistake that negatively affects another person. More often than not, this is not intentional and would be taken back if given the chance. So, it is not unreasonable to think that those in charge of managing our health make mistakes, even if they had the best intentions.

What is institutionalized discrimination? According to our book it is a process that happens when the discrimination is “part of the way a social structure normally operates” (A/T).

The US justice system is marred with instances of high degree discrimination and disparities and these stems from unprecedented poor management of the civil law in the country. Judging by the nature of historical injustices that have defined the criminal justice system, it goes without mentioning that, the confusion’s genesis is in the law itself and racial incarceration of the minority colored groups by the majority whites. Definition of the two terms is based on differences but the deviations are based on either legal terms or social, economic and political basis for the other. The degree of difference is highly unrecognizable but then it is clear that where disparity exists discrimination
I think that discrimination is still prevalent in this world in the form of your race. Everyone who see’s a African American may have the instant reaction to them in the form of a stereotype. This particular stereotype is that you will think he’s a criminal. This is not true in most cases. Most of the time you will see a African American, and he would be a high ranked employe in a very powerful company.
Age is how old you are determined by year. An example of who may be discriminated against because of their age would be the elderly and the young. For example in a health and social care setting would be if an individual goes to the hospital and they are told their injury isn’t as important as an elderly persons injury because they are more vulnerable. Individuals shouldn’t discriminate against these people because the Equality Act 2010 is in place.
