This paper is concerned with those who are screened out and who must struggle to overcome various inequality barriers. In essence, it is about institutionalized inequality and the three basic "isms"—racism, sexism, and ageism. Specifically, the purpose of this paper is to conduct a comparative analysis of the three major "isms" and attempt to specify their similarities and differences.
