Abstract or project description

In this paper, I will talk about the nature of discrimination and the many struggles it has caused through the years. The first question to be asked is about how far back discrimination goes. When did it begin? Then, after we find its historical origin, the next question is to understand all of the different forms, variants, and manifestations of discrimination - including racism between races, as well as racism within a race, sexism, religious discrimination, and so on. Third, after identifying different forms of racism, I will look at various arguments or justifications people have provided in favor of discrimination. Finally, I will show why those arguments are wrong, demonstrating why discrimination has always been unjust.
