Discrimination - The denial of opportunities and equal rights to individuals and groups, because of prejudice or for other arbitrary reasons

Part II

Write a 150- to 250-word response to each of the following questions:

How is discrimination different from prejudice and stereotyping?

Answer: Discrimination is the denial of opportunities and equal rights to individual groups because of prejudice or other reasons. Prejudice is a negative attitude toward an entire category of people. Stereotyping is exaggerated generalizations about all members of a group not looking at individuals. Discrimination is different because you can be prejudice and not discriminate. Most time discrimination is due to the different way of someone and not their race. In Discrimination it is about that one individual not a whole group.

What are the causes of discrimination?

Answer: Discrimination can be caused by a verity of different reasons. I think one reason is the way that one person was taught. Like prejudice and stereotyping discrimination is learned it is not something that someone is born with it is learned from someone at some point in their life. It can be learned by someone in their family or by anyone that this person that the person is around or influenced by. Second I think that one person’s religion or beliefs can cause them to discriminate against other religions for many different reasons. Finally I think discrimination is caused by the way that other people…...

Stereotypes are exaggerated labels that are put on certain people of a group without considering the individuals themselves. Prejudice is similar to stereotyping due to it being directed at a group. However, it goes so far as to be the negative attitude towards those groups based on race or religion. Discrimination is actually denying the rights of those individuals based on their ethnic background or race. Where stereotyping and prejudice are only frowned upon, discrimination is illegal and punishable by law. If you or your business is caught discriminating then you can be looking at jail time. Stereotyping and prejudice are beliefs. Discrimination is taking those thoughts and beliefs and creating actions against those people due to their color, age or ethnic background. For example, Hitler discriminated against the Jews because he took their rights away. For a long time America......

...University of Phoenix Material Appendix C Part I Define the following terms: Term Definition Discrimination the denial of opportunities and equal rights to individuals and groups because of prejudice or for other arbitrary reasons. Institutional discrimination a denial of opportunities and equal rights to individuals or groups, resulting from the normal operations of a society. Political correctness it denotes language, ideas, policies, and behavior seen as seeking to minimize social and institutional offense in occupational, gender, racial, cultural, sexual orientation, certain other religions, beliefs or ideologies, disability, and age-related contexts, and, as purported by the term, doing so to an excessive extent. Part II Discrimination is the denial of opportunities because of race, gender, religion or disability. When people are discriminated against they usually have been denied something because they don’t fit the standard of what the person is looking for. Prejudice and discrimination have been prevalent throughout human history. Prejudice has to do with the inflexible and irrational attitudes and opinions held by members of one group about another, while discrimination refers to behaviors directed against another group. Being prejudiced usually means having preconceived beliefs about groups of people or cultural practices. Prejudices can either be positive or negative; both forms are usually preconceived and difficult to alter. The......

...Discrimination Laura Smalt Eth/125 03/10/13 Winnie Mason Discrimination When I think of discrimination I think of race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexuality, and religion. We will learn what discrimination is, how it is different from prejudice and stereotyping. Also what are the causes of discrimination and how it affects a person or persons? What is discrimination? Discrimination is the denial of opportunities and equal rights to individuals and groups because of prejudice or for other arbitrary. If an employer refuses to hire you as a computer technician because you are a Native American and computer illiterate, this is not discrimination. Now, if an employer refuses to hire you because they feel that you are incompetent and they do not give you the chance to see if you are qualified, this is discrimination (Schaefer, 2012). You have to know and understand discrimination before you can know when discrimination is used. As for myself, I have never seen discrimination used. Would you consider an individual that has a phobia of midgets as discrimination? I am curious to know because my general manager has a phobia of midgets. I believe that it could be considered as discrimination, because she is not giving that person a chance regardless of their height. How do you know when an employer is not hiring you because of discrimination? Even if you ask the reason you are not hired, they can make up a reason to satisfy you or tell you what they think you want to hear.......

...Week 9 Final Assignment ETH/125 October 12, 2013 Dr. Regina Pacheco, Ed.M., PhD. Week 9 Final Assignment My experience in this Culture Diversity course has given me a new insight and thought provoking information that has helped me to relate and understand diversity in a new and different way than I had before. Diversity can be such an interesting topic. When one mentions the word “diversity” several things come to mind. An most often, the first thing that comes to mind is the diverse culture, right here in America. To gain a better understanding of all the different cultures around the World. A person could spend their lifetime traveling around the world, from one culture to another. Why do that? When all one has to do is sit back and take in the daily occurrences and experience everything around them. Right here in America. It is hard to find a country more culturally diverse than our very own, and yet we fail to see it. There are several reasons why one could fail to see all this diversity, whether it be a lack of understanding or just a lack of willingness to understand. For a country that is called “the melting pot” (Schaefer, 2012, p.24), we certainly still have a prevalent degree of prejudice and discrimination. Some would call it a lack of insight and willingness to grow, I prefer to call it ignorance and fear. Fear of differences and change. Diversity is the inclusion of different types of people from different races and culture in a group of......

...Final Project Joey O'Neill ETH 125 April 28, 2013 Dr. June Terpstra Final Project * * Mostly, I now have a better understanding of the diversity within groups that would be different from the ones that I am considered to be in. I have seen groups of people that are all grouped as one but are actually more individual than meets the eye. An example of this is the differences within the Jewish community. According to Schaefer (2012), “The Judaic faith embraces several factions or denominations that are similar in their roots but marked by sharp distinctions. No precise data reveal the relative numbers of the three major groups. Part of the problem is the difficulty of placing individuals in the proper group. For example, it is common for a Jew to be a member of an Orthodox congregation but consider him- or herself Conservative. The following levels of affiliation are based on a 2010 national survey of Jewish Americans: * _ Orthodox—10 percent _ Conservative—24 percent _ Reconstructionist—2 percent _ Reform—26 percent _ just Jewish—23 percent * _ not sure—1 percent” (p. 337). * * This has given me a better understanding of this group’s diversity and made me realize that is the choice of the individual to follow their desired path. One thing new I learned about my own racial cultural history is that it is a lot easier for this group to hide within its own kind than it is for others. Because of the volume of people that fall into......

Eth/125 Final Project

...Final Project ***** **** April 13th, 2014 ETH/125 David DiBari During my time in this class I have learned a lot of new things about different groups of people and it has helped me be more understanding of these groups. The United States has such a variety of people and all of us have either personally moved here from somewhere else or have ancestors who have moved to this country. I also learned a lot about how I can help move the push for equality forward and show my support. I have learned that all groups have discrimination. I have also learned that my culture is just as discriminated against as everyone else’s, even though I did not know that before. According to a report done by Pew Research Center, buy 2050 the United States will be at an incredible 438 million in population. This coming up from the 303 million in the United States in 2008. (Haub, 2008) Not only that but the racial pool of this large group of people is also going to shift. Caucasian Americans will go from the 67% it stood at in 2005 to the estimated 47% of 2050. Other races included in this estimate are Hispanics, which are estimated to go from 14% to 29%. African Americans that are expected to stay at 13% and Asians, which are estimated to go from 5% to 9%. (Passel, 2008) I think a lot of this has to do with the amount of immigration we have right now and the fact that a large portion of our immigration is from our southern border. There are a lot of......

...ETH 125 Final Project ETH 125 ETH 125 Final Project There are a lot of issues we face as a nation. There are so many, that often times you wonder if any of them will actually see a resolution. Americans everyday face very real issues of poverty, employment, security, and education. None of these issues are to be taken too lightly. One of the most important issues off all, though, is diversity. The equal treatment of all citizens either born in, or immigrated to, America. A lot of strides have been made over the course of America’s history. Diversity, and equal treatment of Americans, has to be one of the top priorities for everyone. Over the course of time, I have had a lot of interaction with different cultures. We have lived in Japan, America, and Europe. All of which provide very different cultures to learn and experience. One thing I have learned is to always keep an open mind. When you approach another culture with a closed mind that is when stereotypes take shape. I also learned to evaluate the history of your own people and their struggles. A lot of times, even though we may look different, we have all had very similar struggles throughout the course of history. Women have had the same struggles as African Americans when it comes to basic civil liberties. The same applies to Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender people. As you look at the different racial and gender groups, you do see a lot of similarities. You also learn some new things about their histories...
