Discrimination is the act of prejudice against a person because they have a certain set of characteristics. It is bias, prejudice, unfair or unequal treatment against someone for logical or illogical reasons.
In my opinion, it is very hard to measure prejudice because of the rules and regulations that we must follow in society. In the work place and other public agencies there are policies that must be followed regarding prejudice and discrimination. Everyone must be given a fair chance no matter what their race, sex, age, disability, origin, political belief or religious background.
