How to deal with discrimination

  • You'll have to put anger aside and think about how you were victimized and whether you are being oversensitive.

  • Take a minute to think what you want to say to the individual during a confrontation. It's important to stay calm and collected when conveying how the discriminative act made you feel.

  • Tell the individual that what they did or said offended you. If you are unable to confront the individual, tell a manager or authoritative figure quickly. Time is key when reporting discriminative issues.

  • If the problem is recurring, keep a log of all the instances where the individual offended you. If the discrimination continues, remind a manager or authoritative figure that you want it to stop.
