Are any forms of discrimination 'ok'? Why? Why not?


For example - most of us view discrimination based on race, gender, age as wrong. We can look back on history and think our previous generations were wrong for their views. But there are still groups who are discriminated against, and groups who think that this is ok. So to you - are any forms ok? Why? Why not?

    Peep: well said, you hit on some good points. Adhering to job requirements should not be considered discrimination if the person is denied the job, and you certainly would not hire a sex offender to work in a school.

    Thanks Tom for yr answer - I understand what you mean - however I was using the commonly used term so that most people understood (as it[s commonly used in this way, to mean what I intended to ask the question about).

    Beneficial functions are why I put up with them! They is just...crawly. I see what you mean though about pre-judging.
