Eth/125 Discrimination Worksheet

...Associate Program Material Discrimination Worksheet Write a 100- to 200-word response to each of the following questions. Provide citations for all the sources you use. • 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? There are multiple reasons why one might be......

Eth 125 Week 4 Religious and Ethnic Diversity

...Religious and Ethnic Diversity ETH 125 University of Phoenix Mormonism is a uniquely American religion, have been founded by Joseph Smith Jr., of New York ("The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints", 2013). Mormonism originated in the 1820s, as described by the Church’s website, when Joseph Smith Jr. was confused and frustrated by the various Christian religions and was unable to choose one to follow. He turned to the Bible, which told him to ask God when he lacked wisdom. So he prayed to God, and was visited by the Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ. According to one of the members of the governing body of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Bruce McConkie (1958), “Mormonism is indistinguishable from Christianity”. However, there are some distinct differences between Mormonism and other Christian religions, and other religions in general. These differences have led to a history of discrimination and persecution, so much though that the Church today keeps many of its ceremonies, practices, and beliefs private. The Church of Jesus Christ and Latter-Day Saints has had a vast impact on American culture which includes a recent Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney. The differences between Mormonism and Christianity are subtle. Mormons believe that their Church is the “True Church of Christ”. According to their scripture study publications, the Christian religion became corrupted during “The Great Apostasy” shortly after Christ’s death and......

...before, I would rather have straight questions instead of a keyboard game. Do you agree or disagree with the result? Like I mentioned in the first question, I do not agree with the results. I believe feelings and emotions are better answered through actual questions rather than a five minute keyboard game. Do you think that the results are valid for you? Explain why or why not. I do not think the results are valid for me, because the subject I chose to be tested on I feel very neutral about and the results from the test told me I prefer one over the other. In your opinion, is prejudice easy or difficult to measure accurately? Why? In my opinion I do not think it is easy to measure prejudice because not all prejudice is bad. For example, if someone were to say, “black people can dance”, in my opinion, that’s a compliment. I also think that there is a lot of gray area when it comes to prejudice....

What is sex in biological terms? Are gender and sex the same thing? Explain why or why not? Sex, biologically means chromosomes, hormone differences, internal and external sexorgans. Where gender describes the characteristics like masculine or feminine. So, your sex as male or female in the biological fact is usually the same in any culture but, what that sex means in terms of your gender role as a 'man' or a 'woman' can be different in your cultural or beliefs. How do gender and sex contribute to the concepts and constructions of masculinity and femininity? Men are often viewed as masculine and women as feminine. Although these roles can be reversed, but used to be highly frowned upon and made fun of by most people. These days people are more open to the to others that reverses roles but there still are people that don’t agree with it. Do our concepts of gender and sex contribute to the ways we embrace gender and sex in diversity? I thinks the concepts of gender and sex definetly contributes. My concept personally is that men should be men (masculine) and women should be women (feminine). I don’t completely agree with men being feminine completely.

...Religion and Ethnic Diversity Denise McDonald ETH/125 July 12th, 2015 Ramona Taitano Loughran Religion and Ethnic Diversity Everyone in the world comes from different backgrounds, has different religions, and overall has different beliefs, morals, and views. I am white with a Roman Catholic religious background. I will be discussing the Latter-Day Saints (Mormon) religion as well as the Pacific Islander (Polynesian Descent) ethnic group. It will show the differences that these two groups face when compared to other religions and ethnic groups. According to Biola Magazine (1996-2015),” the overwhelming emphasis in the Mormon scriptures is on earning salvation through obedience to commandments and refraining from sin”. In most other religions you are born with original sin and in the Mormon religion, they do not believe that. Sin does not occur until a person is old enough to be held accountable around the age of seven and older. In the Catholic religion, we are taught that it is “The father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit” whereas in the Mormon religion it is “The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost”. A majority of the Christian population believe that Mormons are not Christian while Mormons disregard that and state that they are. Non-Mormons still believe that Mormons still participate in Polygamy even though it has not occurred since the 1860’s. Many people believe that Mormons spend a lot of their time as teens walking door to door to try to recruit people to......

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. It is possible to have stereotypes and not be discriminating as long as your opinions don’t make you act a certain way towards an individual for whatever the reason. • What are the causes of discrimination? People are taught to act a certain way growing up. Someone who is racist, and has kids, is most likely to rub off on their children and cause them to have similar views. We as people are subjected to change all around us. For most, being different or something unfamiliar to us is scary, so we tend to avoid change and stick with the familiar. We are ignorant by doing this because we will never learn something new without change. We form opinions based on assumption. We need to walk as an example to our children and show them that being......
