Sincerely, Hanno Sauer and Karolina Kudlek Who Can Claim Indirect Discrimination?  This paper asks why discrimination is wrong, when it is wrong. In particular, it asks whether all members of protected groups – including whites, men – should benefit from the protection of the law. I argue that while direct discrimination is symmetrical (it should protect dominant as well as dominated groups), indirect discrimination should be seen as structurally asymmetrical.
