Some practical cases...

For instance, if in married couple, both are blind and desire to adopt. It cannot be refused in terms of law because it would be some discrimination. It is nice since we all have same rights. Even if this couple would be more handicaped, both blind and deaf, they can adopt in most countries.


So, what about discrimination within corporates & companies?
If you are working in a restaurant and have the wrong clothing, daily, you may loose your job. It can be against the image of the company. Isn't it some discrimination? - Of course, not. That's the law.
If a person cannot talk (speech problems), this person cannot pretend to get whatever jobs.
Another example. If the person is blind and/or deaf, will he/she be responsible of sales department? Luckily, law makes sure that there is no discrimination and that they can be employed.

In my opinion, still exists discriminations in working areas.

I am stretching my brain to see how this is relevant to the OP. .... nope can't see it, care to explain?

I'm guessing that English is not the main language spoken in "Debian Land," and that there was some well-reasoned connection to the topic that didn't quite get articulated.
