I’m working on a sociology discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
How does this all fit with the terms prejudice and discrimination, and your thoughts about these two words? Have you ever heard someone say a prejudice statement against someone?
How did you feel about the statement? How do stereotypes work against a group(s)?
I’ve heard stereotypes about Native American Indians being “savages.” being lazy and stupid. Yet, I know that laziness and stupidity comes in all colors, why is this stereotype associated with minority groups?
Do you think the U.S. economy can create racial tensions? Do you think the genocide of Indians created prejudice and discrimination? How can we reduce prejudice?
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 can challenge discrimination acts legally, what do we do with prejudice, since we can’t legislate “freedom of speech?” Should Native American Indians have sovereignty?
