Racial discrimination is present from large organizations (called Social Institutions by Karl Marx) to even our own schools.
How different would life be if your nation was discriminated and seen as unequal to the rest of the people in your country? Unfortunately, this is a major problem in the Indigenous community of Canada today. Discrimination against the Indigenous dates back to early European settlement, and although efforts have been made in recent generations to make the country a mosaic of peoples and cultures, a recent poll suggests that more than one-third of respondents believe racism against Indigenous people is increasing in Canada.

According to Roger Przybylski in his article “The Effectiveness of Treatment for Adult Sexual Offenders”, a study made in Canada found out that treatment to sex offenders while in prison produced significant reductions in sexual recidivism. In addition, Przybylski states that another study (one of the extensive and largest up to date) made by Lösel and Schmucker in 2005, found out that compared to prisoners who do not get treatment, prisoners who underwent treatment during their prison time had an average sexual recidivism rate of 11.8 percent compared to the rate of untreated sexual predators which was 32.5 percent.

Aboriginal women suffered in contemporary Canada, as they dealt with racism, sexism, and domestic violence. Due to the Aboriginals’ fairly low status amongst the Canadian population, murders and missing cases of Aboriginals were disregarded, making them vulnerable targets. Women were considered inferior to men, so Native women living in Canada dealt with the worst of the crimes committed, the crime rate against them being disturbingly high. Approximately 70% of Missing Cases were Murder Cases, death being as a result of homicide or negligence, 4% being cases of suspicious death, when authorities regarded the case as natural or accidental, whilst the family and or band viewed it as suspicious and 9% were cases where the nature of the case was unknown. Not only did the authorities silence these issues, but when these women were molested, the women themselves kept quiet, as it was a personal issue, and they feared they would be shunned, rather than the molester themselves.
It is pretty undisputable that the Canadians did hold prejudice and was racist towards the Japanese people. Many believe this to be the driving reason to the Japanese’ internment. Pre-Pearl Harbor, racism was not as intense, but still was real. There was some level of racism ever since the first Japanese people entered Canada in 1877 ("The Internment of the Japanese during World War II."). They were always looked down upon for the inability to speak the language there.
