- Unfairness; the state of not being fair or just.
2011 October 1, Phil McNulty, “Everton 0 - 2 Liverpool”, in BBC Sport:
- The game was engulfed in controversy when Rodwell appeared to win the ball cleanly in a midfield challenge with Suarez. The tackle drew an angry response from Liverpool's players- Lucas in particular as Suarez writhed in agony - but it was an obvious injustice when the England Under-21 midfielder was shown the red card.
- Injustice and unjust use different prefixes, as French injustice was borrowed into English, while unjust was formed as un- + just. The spelling injust, from French injuste, is very rarely used, and unjustice, from un- + justice, is nonstandard.
