Discrimination is basically the act of discriminating or recognizing any difference. Discrimination means recognizing difference between people on the basis of caste, sex or age. Racial discrimination was prevalent in many African countries. Black people were always subjugated by the white, just because of their skin colour. Such discrimination is not at all just and practical. Skin colour and sex is something that is God given and hence varies from person to person. In several countries, females are always consider the weaker sex and as such, people even practise infanticide i.e. abortion of a girl child.
Discrimination has been nipped in the bud, in various countries worldwide, but in certain places, it still exists. Clarence Thomas, once remarked regarding the evil of discrimination, “Any discrimination, like sharp turns in a road, becomes critical because of the tremendous speed at which we are travelling into the high-tech world of a service economy.”
