The paper "Discrimination Hurts by Huynh and Fuligni" is a delightful example of an article on sociology. The paper, ‘Discrimination Hurts: The Academic, Psychological, and Physical Well-Being of Adolescents’ by Huynh and Fuligni study the critical factors of racism that adversely impact the overall well-being of adolescents from ethnic minority coming from Latin America, Asia, and Europe. 12th-grade students of an ethnic minority from three ethnically diverse public schools were selected. The major focus was on the frequency of peer, adult and daily discriminations that affected their development vis-à-vis academic achievement, social interaction, self-esteem and health imperatives. It had used traditional and daily measures of discrimination. The traditional measure was defined as an accumulated report of their differential treatment based on race/ethnicity, whereas, the daily measure was in diary format where participants gave a daily account of their experience.Researchers have described racial discrimination as a treatment by peer group and adults that lead to adverse physiological and academic outcomes on ethnic minority adolescents. The findings of research establish the veracity of the claim that racial discrimination impacts adversely on academic achievements and self-esteem leading to depression, distress, and other physical ailments. It also emphasizes that ethnic identity and ethnic socializations, as well as race sensitivity, are important elements in adjusting in a foreign land. The socio-cultural and language barrier significantly influence their level of adjustment. The females reported less discrimination as compared to their male counterparts. The Latin American youth faced more discrimination, followed by Asians and European students. While the ethnic identity of the peer group was not identified, the study, however, shows that racial prejudice against an ethnic minority has important ramifications on their well-being, including academic achievements.
