English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. discrimination

    Difference is the state or quality of being unlike or the amount of such unlikeness. A difference is in the things compared; a discrimination is in our judgment of them; a distinction is in our definition or description or mental image of them. Careful discrimination of real differences results in clear distinctions. Disparity is stronger than inequality, implying that one thing falls far below another; as, the disparity of our achievements when compared with our ideals. Dissimilarity is between things sharply contrasted; there may be a difference between those almost alike. There is a discrepancy in accounts that fail to balance. Variety involves more than two objects; so, in general, does diversity; variation is a difference in the condition or action of the same object at different times. Disagreement is not merely the lack, but the opposite, of agreement; it is a mild word for opposition and conflict; difference is sometimes used in the same sense.

    Synonyms:
    contrariety, contrast, difference, disagreement, discrepancy, disparity, dissimilarity, dissimilitude, distinction, divergence, diversity, inconsistency, inequality, unlikeness, variation, variety

    Antonyms:
    agreement, consonance, harmony, identity, likeness, resemblance, sameness, similarity, uniformity, unity

How to use discrimination in a sentence?

  1. Michelle Steel:

    The Biden administration’s decision to drop the Yale lawsuit is totally wrong and sets a dangerous precedent, if the administration is serious about combating anti-Asian hate, that includes protecting the AAPI community from discrimination in the halls of our schools and universities.

  2. Ben Valencia and Luis Marmolejo:

    She offered to provide the gay couple with a list of bakeries that would meet their needs, but she said the men simply walked out of the store. A few days later she received a telephone call from the local newspaper. The gay couple had gone public — and had accused the Delorme family of discrimination. It just kind of makes you feel dehumanized, Ben Valencia told the News-Journal. People shouldn't have to worry about going into a business, especially a public business that serves the public, and have to worry about being turned away for something, for who you are.

  3. Liao Lijia:

    Ten years ago we still associated tattoos with bad people or gangsters. People who wanted to get one were afraid of discrimination from society, but tattoo culture is well accepted by Chinese people these days, especially in Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou.

  4. Stephen Miller:

    The medical establishment in our country has embraced a lot of really wild, far-left theories – the wildest of them being the notion that racial discrimination is a positive good.

  5. Karunasena Hettiarachchi:

    It has not come to my table yet. If it comes I'll give it due consideration. If it comes in the right track we'll consider it seriously, if it is really interesting and worthwhile, sometimes we do combined operations and exercises with military vessels from around the world, no discrimination.
