Social injustice is a relative concept about the claimed unfairness or injustice of a society in its divisions of rewards and burdens and other incidental inequalities based on the user's worldview of humanity. Immorality is often used as a synonym for this, whereas it is more correct that this is one type of immorality. The concept is different for different worldviews of persons and societies. Conflicts in definitions of social injustice is increasingly a platform of emerging political parties. For some societies, social injustice includes consideration of advantages and disadvantages in society that make it unequal. For other societies, social injustice includes repressing our ability to be fruitful for ourselves and the society in which we live.

Social injustice is used as a slogan by certain societies to oppose other societies' definition of social justice. Current hot topics include wealth distribution relative to labor, responsibility and skill; ableism, ageism, capitalism, classism, casteism, discrimination, homophobia, oppression, patriotism, prejudice, racism, religion, faith-based discrimination, sexism and stereotyping.
