Prejudice and discrimination are commonly intermixed but they are different in  meaning. Discrimination is the action or the unfair treatment against someone based on many  characteristics such as age, sex, skin color, religion, and income. Racism is the type of  discrimination based on someone’s perception of race. Discrimination is often the result o an  attitude called prejudice. Prejudice is the prejudging of some sort that can be positive but is  usually negative. Positive prejudice is when someone exaggerates the virtues of a group.  Negative prejudice is usually like thinking a group is superior to another. Nobody is born with  prejudice but it is learned from the people around us. A study by Eugene Hartley showed that  people who are prejudice against one group tend to be prejudiced toward others and they can be  prejudiced against people they have never met, even those that don't exist.  The two main types of discrimination are individual and institutional. Individual discrimination  is the negative treatment of one person by another and it's the issue between individuals but  institutional is how discrimination is woven into the total institutions of society. Examples  include home mortgage rates, Health care, and in the job market. Another big difference between the two is the discrimination can be unintentional unlike prejudice like in medical decisions, it is  unknown why race­ethnicity is a factor. Prejudice has several theories like the psychological  perspective which says prejudice is the result of frustration which leads to a scapegoat­ often a  racial or religious minority. It's also believed that personalities like the authoritarian personality  can make people more inclined to differ others are inferior. The sociological perspective has  conflict theory, symbolic interactionism, and functionalism. The different theories and views are  a big difference between prejudice and discrimination.  Another big difference is that racism is  learned after joining a group and discrimination is always just the action based on view  and perceptions.
