Reflections on Racial Discrimination

Franklin hears about people being discriminated against at the workplace and in society but rarely experiences it first hand. Cortez, on the other hand, speaks English poorly and is often subject to derogatory comments from peers and coworkers.

  • family
  • work place
  • community

Write a brief summary that includes the following:

  • Describe a racial incident pertaining to each realm in detail. Explain why you believe this is racial discrimination.
  • Explain how this situation could have been handled to avoid discrimination against those belonging to another race.

. Your response should be at least two pages long. All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.
