Everything You Need To Know about Discrimination. The Need To Know Library. Revised Edition.
Prejudice and how it can lead to discrimination is discussed with children as the audience. Discrimination begins with prejudice: the idea that one group is better than another. Although prejudice is morally wrong, it is not illegal, but it can lead to illegal discrimination. Discrimination is discussed with regard to: (1) individual rights; (2) religious and ethnic discrimination; (3) fair housing; (4) stereotypes; (5) the rights of females; (6) painful feelings of difference; and (7) dealing with discrimination. A glossary explains terms used in the discussion. Six resource organizations from which help is available for victims of discrimination are listed. (Contains 5 references.) (SLD)
