What is discrimination? In basic terms, it means that everyone deserves to be treated the same. When people are denied opportunities because of their race, religion, or national origin, we have discrimination. Discrimination is at the heart of a $10 billion lawsuit filed against McDonald's. That's an enormous figure. What is this recent discrimination lawsuit about?
An advertising firm accuses McDonald's of racial discrimination, claiming it does not advertise on Black-owned media companies. The lawsuit was brought by media entrepreneur Byron Allen. He owns the networks Entertainment Studios and Weather Group. The McDonald's hot coffee case was small in comparison, at only around $3 million.

This lawsuit focuses on race. But there are other areas touched by discrimination. These include:
- national origin
- sexual identity
Discrimination could mean a company asking improper questions at a job interview. See an earlier article - İŞ GÖRÜŞMEN NASIL GEÇTİ? https://www.communityabroad.com/turkish/post/1000000049355# It could mean home buyers being turned away because of their nationality. Discrimination could sometimes be difficult to prove. A company could say, "We didn't fire him because he is 65-years old (that would be age discrimination). We fired him because of poor job performance. GİRDİĞİM EN KÖTÜ İŞ GÖRÜŞMESİ | Cinsiyetçi Mülakat Soruları https://youtu.be/VN_z1SF7Uxc
Discrimination is a matter of equal protection for everyone. In terms of equality, looking back in history, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk worked toward bringing greater equality in society. And he was admired greatly for it, as this video shows - "Atatürk'e Benzeyen Adam Ağlattı" - https://youtu.be/CUtdSwxBlm4
If you think you were a victim of discrimination, you could reach out to civil rights or employment attorneys.
