Has it ever happened to you that you were asked to keep yourself out from a project just because you belonged or did not belong to a particular race or religion?

Apart from the basis on which discrimination can take place at work, newer kinds of biases that are quite subtle and are less visible such as disability, migration, genetic disposition, dreadful, communicable diseases like HIV/ AIDS, age, sexual orientation and lifestyle are frequently coming into the picture.
