Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal to discriminate against a person because of their race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The law also protects individuals from retaliation if they complain about discrimination, participate in an employment discrimination proceeding, or reasonably oppose discrimination. Although Title VII makes discrimination illegal, it is still present in the workplace. The objective of this thesis is to discuss employee discrimination based on race and sex. Specifically, I will analyze the current workplace discrimination against African American men and women as well as the psychological, physiological, and emotional effects of discrimination. Discrimination against these groups occurs in various forms in the workplace. Research suggests that members of these marginalized groups are more likely to experience employment discrimination than white men and women (Bleich et al., 2019, p. 1405). This thesis explores how discrimination is present in current workplaces, but it also suggests ways to become allies to those who are being discriminated against.
