Prejudice
A negative attitude toward an entire category of people, such as a racial or ethnic minority.

...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......
