She also believes that if there is too much awareness for discrimination and that it can lead to the issue of reverse discrimination. Reverse discrimination is when the awareness for discrimination becomes too high, then the group being discriminated against receive almost a form of special treatment where they start to get more rights than the initial discriminators who are now receiving the discrimination.

There has been a pattern in United States history that the new group of immigrants are being discriminated against and not wanted. A clear example is the growing Hispanic community in the United States and some of them are coming illegally.
