i read The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian for book project. the protagonist who is indian went to school which white people go. then he was discriminated at there because only he is indian. they ignored him. at the end of the story he closed with them though ;D but he was discriminated by them. so what do you think about discrimination?
well even though i didnot read this book, i think that discrimination is bad. it just hurts people alot thinking that you are different to other people and you cant be with people you want to be with. I think that it does not matter what race you are...we should just all be together. Discrimination is just...wrong.
I actually don't know what happened in the book because I haven't read it yet (obviously), but I do believe that discrimination towards someone or a group of people is morally wrong. I don't know about you guys, but I wouldn't hang out with people who always pick on someone else because of their races or appearances.
Discrimination is something that can literally kill someone if the person is discriminated enough and if we all start ignoring someone and stop ourselves from becoming their friends then its a serious issue.

I think discrimination is unavoidable in any society but it's a fixable problem. But I don't think it's entirely up to the people who "discriminate." I believe people have to open themselves to new environment and try to overcome that difference. And it's people's obvious duty to try to understand and accept people who are apparently different, If this happens, I don't think discrimination becomes a huge deal in this society. But it takes a lot of time and efforts to do that. Since people don't, in some parts, discrimination is a huge deal in certain societies.
