Question 1: Is judging someone based on experience age discrimination? If you have two applicants--one is older with five years experience, the other is younger, with only one year--is it discrimination to go with the older applicant, mainly because of the number of years he has under his belt? Should the employer be expected to look at the younger applicant's body of work, and see what he's actually done with his one year?
Question 2: Females and African Americans are both granted more freedom in their dress and appearance, because it's understood to be a part of their culture. Should youth be getting the same exceptions? Does the Afro deserve more protection then the Shaggy Suburban Skater cut?
