In some cases, these standards are difficult or impossible for non-whites to meet due to inherent differences in physical traits that have no impact on ability or job performance.

3 things pregnant women should know about discrimination

They felt that it was either better to try to handle it themselves or just ignore it and hope it passed. Ultimately, the harassment and discrimination just increased or the harasser found a way to have them terminated anyway.
