Associative discrimination which occurs when one is treated worse because they are associated with someone who has a certain characteristic such as a gang member. Perceptive discrimination, which occurs when someone believes that one, has a certain characteristic regardless of them having it or not, for example indirect discrimination occurs when a policy for everyone puts down certain individuals with a certain characteristics such as wearing a shirt without a tie.
