Systematic population.”(Rankin&Winsa, 2013). This affects the minority

Systematic discrimination “refers to patterns of behavior, policies or practices that are part of the structures of an organization, and which create disadvantages for racialized persons. It has a broad impact on an industry, profession, company, or geographic area” (Legal, 1997). Over time, there has been a lot of systematic discrimination towards minorities. The focus of this essay will be on the current socio-economic and cultural effects of systematic discrimination in society. This essay will show how the justice system disproportionately incarcerated minorities, how corporations adopt discriminatory practices that affect the socio-economic status of said persons, and how the educational system is structured in a way that hinders postsecondary educational attainment, and limits the success of minorities.The topic of systematic discrimination in the justice system based on disproportionately incarcerated minorities is something that is current in Ontario. An example of this is “aboriginal boys aged 12 to 17 make up 2.9 percent of the young male population. But in Ontario youth facilities they make up nearly 15 per cent of young male admissions. In other words, there are about five times more aboriginal boys in the young male jail population, than what they represent in the general young male population.”(Rankin&Winsa, 2013). This affects the minority communities because it portrays aboriginal boys as those who commit more crime than the average.  Also “for black boys, the proportion of jail admission is four times higher” (Rankin&Winsa, 2013). This also affects the black minority because this gives white people a reason not only to see black people as violent, but also to segregate blacks in fear of being in their company. Recently there has been also been this new way on how police find criminals,  ” police carding which is officially known as the community contacts policy, is an intelligence gathering policy of the Toronto police service involving the stopping, questioning and documenting of  Individuals when no particular offence is being investigated”(Wikipedia, 2017). Ever since this law came out there have some reports on the police showing unfair treatment regarding carding specific individuals, predominantly black folk “Cole recently penned a lengthy feature in Toronto Life magazine, detailing numerous incidents where he says he was stopped by police simply because he is black.” this affects the minorities because African Canadians are being stopped based on the facts that police think that all black folks are criminals, this carding makes it seem that black folks always up to something, so it’s okay to question them. That’s what police are indirectly implying.A Lot of corporations have discriminated minorities, but not A Lot of them get pointed out for it, until recently, Hillary Clinton spoke about Donald Trump’s previews run in with the law years back on the discrimination on black minority communities, renting any of his condos. The current American president, Donald Trump, stated, in 1973 that “he would not rent apartments in one of his developments to African-Americans, and he made sure that the people who worked for him understood that was the policy” (Rothman 2016). This situation affects minorities because it segregates African Americans and forces them into specific neighbourhoods that are not affluent, and where various socio-economic factors and conditions exacerbate and justify further discrimination. Mr. Trump even went as far to justify his actions by displacing responsibility when he stated “along with many, many other companies throughout the country … were sued. We settled the suit with zero—with no admission of guilt.”(Rothman 2016). Systemic discrimination “refers to patterns of behavior, policies or practices that are part of the structures of an organization, and which create or perpetuate disadvantage for racialized persons. It has a broad impact on an industry, profession, company, or geographic area”(Legal, 1997). Another significant factor in corporation discrimination is the issue with BMO (Bank of Montreal) and Christians. “Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms begins by stating “Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law:” The Bank of Montreal has decided to turn its back on these principles with a campaign against Christians. BMO’s opening salvo was to attack the Christian standards of Trinity Western University. BMO has now expanded their war by attacking Christian legal suppliers doing business with the bank.”(Article, 2017). This affects the Christian minority group because the bank is being biased on the Christian community, limiting their access to to business deals and leaving them potentially poor. This all started because the BMO didn’t like that Christians don’t accept the LGBT community “The fact that BMO has never attacked anyone based on diversity of ethnic groups, physical abilities and balance of men and women suggests that these demographics are in place as a smokescreen to cover their only agenda, attacking Christians for not promoting gay and lesbian lifestyles.” This also affects the Christian community because they basically have to choose between supporting the LGBT community or no business, which in this case didn’t end well with the bank attacking the Christian community.On a different note “A Texas mother is asking for an apology from her daughter’s school after an administrator pulled the 9-year-old from class because she said the girl’s ponytails violated campus dress code”(Kyung, 2016). This quote forces on how the educational system is structured in a way that hinders educational attainment, and limits the success of minorities. “They won’t want to be my friends because my hair is not as pretty as the assistant principals,’ who has very straight hair” (Kyung, 2016) this is a good example on how it affects minorities because it’s limited a little girl from being treated the same, she’s being bullied on hair type to the point where they send her home. “In this particular situation, the focus was on consistency,” said Charlotte Trejo, the district’s executive director for campus leadership. “The bottom line is that the principal was trying to be consistent with other decisions that she had made on the campus about dress code and hair style. That is the main thing.”(Kyung, 2016). The district’s executive director was trying to justify the act.  also relating to this topic  “Over the past 45 years, students in the United States have made notable gains in academic achievement However, the racial achievement gap remains because not all groups of students are advancing at the same rates. Evidence of the racial achievement gap has been manifested through standardized test scores, high school dropout rates, high school completion rates, college acceptance and retention rates, as well as through longitudinal trends. While efforts to close the racial achievement gap have increased over the years with varying success, studies have shown that disparities still exist between achievement levels of minorities compared to White counterparts.”  The racial achievement gap in the United States is based on the education disparities amongst various Ethnic groups.  This effect the black and Hispanic Minority communities because they more likely to receive Lower grades and dropout of school then the average white ,based on bullying and systemic discrimination in the school board.In conclusion the justice system disproportionately incarcerated minorities, corporations adopt discriminatory practices that affect the social and economic status of said persons, and the educational system is structured in a way that hinders postsecondary educational attainment, and limits the success of minorities.
