• What is discrimination? How is discrimination different from prejudice and stereotyping?

Disrimination means to single out an individual or group based on either race, age, gender, or religion. “Bias or prejudice resulting in denial of opportunity, or unfair treatment regarding selection, promotion, or transfer.”( www.businessdictionary.com/discrimination ) The way discrimination is different from stereotyping is because when you stereotype an individual or group you make exaggerating comments about that particular group or person for example saying all white people are uncaring or stating all children are loud and abnoxious. This might fit some individuals characteristics but it would be stereotyping the whole group if stating everyone of that age or race acted the same. Discrimination differs from prejudice slightly because being prejudice means to not associate yourself with a particular race, age, or gender or not like them just because of those rason but to discriminate against people of different age, race, or gender would be to not allow them to work in a specific atmosphere or allow them to have the same opportunity for a promotion as a person of a different race, age, or gender.

• What are the causes of discrimination?

What is sex in biological terms? Are gender and sex the same thing? Explain why or why not? GENDER: is the range of mental, physical and behavioral characteristics that distinguish between male “masculinity” and female “femininity”. SEX: how the organisms are classified as either female or male based on their reproductive organs and functions. Yes I feel that gender and sex are the same thing for the most part reason being is that both state that a person is identified as either male or female based on ther physical characteristics. Although they are defined differently over all it means the same thing, except that for the word gender it says mental and behavioral characteristics distinguish whether someone is masculine or feminine. Based on those two things you can not always identify someones sex because if it is not stated in the topic or person saying he or she we would not know what the gender of the person being talked about is.

...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......

Stereotyping can also be a negative thing as well depending on a certain thing or situation.

...presence of diversity in society? Ageism is discrimination against people who are older. This can happen in a number of ways. It can take place in the workplace, thinking that they are too old to do the job, which I’ve seen first hand or that they are too old to be considered for the job. They can also be discriminated against in ways that other people don't notice. Ageism hinders diversity when people of a certain age aren't accepted into a certain group of people. When somebody is "too old" to be accepted they might not get the respect or equal opportunities that they deserve in a certain situation. • What is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)? How does the ADA address issues for the aging population? The Americans with Disabilities Act is an act that was brought into existence in 1990.

It makes them more able to get a job and contribute, not only to society, but to their own life by working and moving up in their jobs because they have more experience and are more qualified for the job, whereas before they might have been help back simply because of their age. • What is being done to address the issues you identified?

How is discrimination different from prejudice and stereotyping? Discrimination,” is the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex.” (Dictionary.com) Discrimination is different from prejudice and stereotyping because, discrimination is when you act on your stereotypes and treat others unequally due to your prejudice opinions, whereas being prejudice and having stereotypes, you sort of hang on to your opinions and not act upon your opinions.

How is discrimination different from prejudice and stereotyping? Discrimination is the act or behavior of treating someone poorly due to their race, religion, creed, gender, sexual orientation or age. Discrimination is different from prejudice because if you are being prejudice than you have a misconception about a certain of people. An example would be that you do not trust people from Russia because they were raised different that us. Stereotyping is different from both discrimination and prejudice because when you are stereotyping it is more broad and not pinpointed as much.

I believe that the cause of discrimination stems from how a person was raised. If someone was brought up around people that were prejudice towards a certain group then it would be considered a normal and accepted practice.
