...Week 2 DQ 1 How does Racial and Ethnic Groups define prejudice? Do you agree with this definition? Why or why not? Prejudice is describes in the text as “a negative attitude toward an entire category of people, such as a racial or ethnic minority” (Schaefer, 2012, pp. 35). The question asks how do racial and ethnic groups define prejudice, and although I could not find an exact answer to that question, I believe this would accurately describe how both of those groups would define the term prejudice. The description above does accurately describe the term for me. I agree with this definition because it deals with attitudes towards an entire category of people and involves attitudes, thoughts, and beliefs, not actions as stated on page 35 as well. I had never been exposed to any prejudice except from my Grandfather that had been through a war. I recognized his attitudes, thoughts, and beliefs as prejudice. It was how he grew up and it was obvious that those were passed on to him at an early age. I grew up in a very conservative part of the country and moved far away when I was in my early twenties. The part of the country I moved to had so much racial prejudice, I went into a bit of culture shock from others attitudes, thoughts, and beliefs. What I experienced was the exact definition in my first paragraph of the work prejudice. Week 2 DQ 2 Racial profiling is frequently in the news and is a prime example of stereotyping in action. How does racial profiling relate......

Retirement is a huge thing for the elderly because they have done their time and the way the economy is right now, retirement is hard to obtain because companies fire elderly or hire new recruits because they possess the skills needed to get the job done or wants the working force to be younger and more familiar with the technology.

...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......

...fail to thrive economically. The largest reason for failure is that most “Puerto Ricans who move to the US mainland are less educated than those who remain on the island” (Feliciano, 2006, p. 1). The lack of education contributes to economics failure by limiting them to blue-collar jobs that are diminishing because of economic recession. Additional reasons for economic failure are “crime, drug-use, poor educational opportunity, unemployment, and the breakdown of the traditionally strong Puerto Rican family structure” (Green, 2011, p. 1). The family was originally strongly patriarchal with the mother tending to the family. The primary religion of the Puerto Ricans is Roman Catholic with influences from pagan African beliefs (Green, 2011, p. 2). Puerto Ricans have a political advantage, and can vote as soon as they move stateside. Because of their youth, language barriers, and ignorance of the political system, many Puerto Ricans do not vote (The City University of New York, 2008). Stateside Puerto Ricans maintain contact with their Island relatives and local family (Green, 2011); they often avoid assimilating further into mainstream society. Immigrants from the Dominican Republic comprise a small proportion of the Hispanic immigrants in America. Dominicans are some of the most recent American immigrants with 98% of them arriving in the United States between 1990 and 2000 (Migration Policy Institute, 2011). Census results yield that 45% of the immigrants report a functional......

...and mass media. Though there are many theories about prejudices and how they are created and approached, most believe that prejudices are taught from a very young age. Labeling theory The labeling theory is the belief that the view of deviance according to which being labeled as a "deviant" leads a person to engage in deviant behavior. The labeling theory explains why people’s behavior clashes with social norms. A person that is labeled may incorporate the label into his/her self-concept. Part II Select three of the identity categories below and name or describe at least 3 related stereotypes for each: • Race • Ethnicity • Religion • Gender • Sexual orientation • Age • Disability Category Stereotype 1 Stereotype 2 Stereotype 3 Race All African Americans are good at sports. All Americans are lazy and obese. All Mexicans are illegal aliens. Ethnicity All Arabs or Muslims are terrorists. All Jews are greedy. All Irish people are drunks.
