Examining the Effect Posed By Discrimination on Health Statuses of Immigrant Families from the Latino Community
Harmful actions characterizing discrimination as a societal vice involve denial of equal access to opportunities and resources. One of the attributes of discrimination, which entails institutional discrimination, tends to pose negative effects on the immigrant families’ economic well-being in situations such as those in which children to these parents live in poverty; translating into poor educational, health, and developmental outcomes. Hence, mixed outcomes accrue. On the one hand, it has been established that discrimination exhibits an inverse correlation with the people’s social, economic, and health well-being. On the other hand, specific insights regarding the manner in which members of the Latino community are affected by discrimination are yet to receive an in-depth analysis; a gap that the study seeks to address.
