Lecture 25
oContemporary Manifestations of Prejudice
oAll in all, Canada is not doing too badly in getting rid of institutional
prejudice
oSection 15 (1) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms has set
clear standards for the unacceptability of institutional prejudice and
discrimination and even homophobia is being fought on the basis of the
charter
oThe issue is more complicated than that, however, because Section 15 (1)
is followed by Section 15 (2)
oSection 15 (2) of the Charter
oSection 15 (2) of the Charter states:
Subsection (1) doesn’t not preclude any law, program or activity
that has as its object the amelioration of conditions of
disadvantaged individuals or groups including those that are
disadvantaged because of race, national or ethnic origin, color,
religion, sex, age, or mental or physical disability
oExcept in situation where it can be traditional discrimination
oIt is ok to have law to improve conditions for them to participate properly
in society
oIt sis ok to have laws that are generally know as affirmative action laws
oProgram that has the purpose to help a group to make them overcome
obstacles
oTo undo past obstacles
oReverse discrimination?
oReverse discrimination is a term commonly used to refer to the
discriminatory effects that the kinds of programs referred to in 15 (2) have
upon individuals from non “disadvantages groups
oThus, the term refers to discrimination against members of traditionally
advantage groups at the hands of affirmative action and preferential
policies
oLet’s look at an example from a letter to the editor of a newspaper
(presented in class)
Try to read b.w the lines
Unfortunately women and white
When they are only looking for men
Is the author of the letter prejudiced?
Going to favor men as opposed to women
oPeople don’t go around advertising their stereotypes
oWhere is it going on
oValue pluralism
