Examples of Possible Discrimination in Public Services
Potential Discrimination Examples
- City inspectors punish people of color more severely for city code violations than they do for white people.
- A county healthcare service does not provide a language interpreter for someone with limited English speaking ability, even though that person repeatedly asked for an interpreter.
- A person is the target of racial profiling. Racial profiling happens when police use race, color and/or national origin as the only reason to suspect a person has done something illegal.
- Police arrest a deaf man and refuse to provide an interpreter to allow him to communicate with them.
