Kinkly explains Discrimination

Generally, discrimination suggests a negative context where a distinction in treatment is observed due to a conflict of personal beliefs or values. Most notably, discrimination is observed by individuals belonging to a group that reflects a different race, age, or sex than the prefered. Usually, discrimination is understood to be unjust and to interfere with human rights. Discrimination hinges on recognizing and understanding difference.
