Question: Why does discrimination happen?
My answer: To me discrimination is a really big word. To me discrimination means to not include someone in something because of how they are, their raise, their skin colour, their sex and their age is. Which in my opinion isn’t really something right to do against people because they aren’t a certain type of person which society calls “perfect.” One of the biggest questions that people ask while reading/talking about discrimination is well why does it happen?

That don’t have a group to work with. But then when they start asking people if they can join their group there's always this talk between the rest of this group “ why does he/she have to be in our group he/she are so dumb they fail on everything” (which I myself don’t say). Then as soon as that discussion is done they say no to the person who is asking them to apart of their group. Which by the way they don’t actually realise how bad they are making the person feel. But what they don't think about is that once they were also dumb and didn’t know anything and used to ask for help from others. So why should they have the right to tell someone how “smart” you are
