Institutionalized Discrimination Research Paper

111 Words1 Page

Institutionalized discrimination against homosexuals stems from systemic stereotypical beliefs, where negative stereotypes and discrimination are the norm. For example in some Middle Eastern countries it’s normal to imprison a homosexual. Here in America it’s almost twice as hard for a minority homosexual man to be open in corporate America, depending on what state you live in. In more liberal states such as California, it may be more acceptable. However, in southern states such as Georgia, that behavior is shunned and not openly talked about. Georgia is making strides to become more accepting of all lifestyles, but it’s the institutionalized discrimination that’s taught in our public schools that’s holding the state back.
