A: I believe there is no difference.. youve already mention possible examples of descrimination. (race, ethnicity, etc). we cant really avoid this things especially if you are outnumbered, in minority.

User: • What are the causes of discrimination

Weegy: Discrimination is the prejudicial treatment of an individual based on their membership - or perceived membership - in a certain group or category. [ It involves the actual behaviors towards groups such as excluding or restricting members of one group from opportunities that are available to another group. It involves excluding or restricting members of one group from opportunities that are available to other groups. Here are three types of discrimination: Realistic competition is driven by self-interest and is aimed at obtaining material resources (e.g., food, territory, customers) for the in-group (e.g., favouring an in-group in order to obtain more resources for its members, including the self). Social competition is driven by the need for self-esteem and is aimed at achieving a positive social status for the in-group relative to comparable out-groups (e.g., favouring an in-group in order to make it better than an out-group). Consensual discrimination is driven by the need for accuracy[clarification needed] and reflects stable and legitimate intergroup status hierarchies (e.g., favouring a high status in-group because it is high status). ]

Weegy: Tajfel proposed that the groups (e.g. social class, family, football team etc.) which people belonged to were an important source of pride and self-esteem. [ Groups give us a sense of social identity: a sense of belonging to the social world. In order to increase our self-image we enhance the status of the group to which we belong. For example, England is the best country in the world! We can also increase our self-image by discriminating and being prejudice against the out group (the group we don?t belong to). For example, the Americans, French etc. are a bunch of losers! Therefore we divided the world into ?them? and ?us? based through a process of social categorization (i.e. we put people into social groups). This is known as in-group (us) and out-group (them). Social identity theory states that the in-group will discriminate against the out-group to enhance their self-image. ............... ]
