Discrimination and Modern Societies, Especially Developing Economies: The Indigene and Non-Indigene in Urban Centers

Kenneth Ubani


The spate of segregation among societies, especially societies with diverse ethnic orientation is becoming worrisome. This condition hampers unity especially among the leaders that come from various ethnic groups. Civilizations should have been able to overcome this trait in the environment. This article recognizes prevalent measures some groups use in treating those they think does not belong to their group.Some of these measures can be calculated as discrepancy or discrimination. These measures are often opinionated and not consistent with the approved rule. Why then must it continue to rear its ugly head in public order? A few examples has been located,especially those that bother on public or social standing of a State. There are various types of discrimination but this study focuses on the discrepancy between indigene and non-indigene.Suggestions have been given on what can help reduce its influence because of its detrimental set backs on developing economies.
