There are four types of discrimination, the first is individual discrimination. Individual discrimination is the behaviour of one person to another or a group of people, the next is institutional discrimination; this is when discrimination is built into the way the institution is run. Next is overt discrimination, this is when an individual or institution knowingly treats someone unfairly on the bias of race, gender, etc. The last is covert discrimination, this discrimination in subtle, for example applying criteria that people will be unable to meet, this type can be intentional or unintentional. Discrimination can be seen in practise with stereotyping, labelling, disempowering, abusing, bullying, abuse of power, infringements of rights and over-riding individual’s rights.
Stereotypes lead people to expect certain actions from members of social groups. These stereotype-based expectations may lead to self-fulfilling prophecies, in which one's inaccurate expectations about a person's behavior, through social interaction, prompts that person to act in stereotype-consistent ways, thus confirming one's erroneous expectations and validating the stereotype. (Page 94–97) Often time’s people are fairly ignorant of the customs and
What are the negative aspects of stereotypes? I feel that there are a lot of aspect od stereotype, they can be hurtful and harsh to people.

Prejudiced views between cultures may result in racism; in its extreme forms, racism may result in genocide, such as occurred in Germany with the Jews, in Rwanda between the Hutus and Tutsis and, more recently, in the former Yugoslavia between the Bosnians and Serbs. Henri Tajfel proposed that stereotyping is based on a normal cognitive process – the tendency to group things together. In doing so, we tend to exaggerate the differences between groups and the similarities of things in the same group. We categorize people in the same way. We see the group to which we belong (the in-group) as being different from the others (the out-group), and members of the same group as being more similar than they are.
Meursault’s actions closely resemble sociopathic behavior, leading some to believe that his is a threat to society. Although Meursault could be considered a sociopath due to some of the behaviors he exhibits, he does not present with the deceitful and charming characteristics of a standard sociopath. When analyzing the definition of a sociopath, Meursault displays several characteristics associated with sociopathic behavior. According to Depressive Psychological Disorders, sociopaths are generally defined as “people displaying anti social behavior which is mainly characterized by lack of empathy towards others that is coupled with display of abnormal moral conduct and inability to conform with the norms of society” (Sociopath 1). On several occasions, Meursault fails to accept the pre-established rules of society.
Abstract This paper will attempt to explore two different viewpoints on the use of deception in human participants for social psychological experiments. The paper will compare and contrast two different articles that have conflicting views on the topic. Alan C. Elms, the author of a pro- deception article views deception as just, ethical, and even necessary tool of social psychology; however he does assert a very strong degree of caution, and care when implementing deception in an experimental design (1985). Opposite Elms, Diana Baumrind views deception as unethical and unfair to unsuspecting subjects who are unaware of such “trickery”. She debates that the harm done to the individual, society, and to the profession are at times irreversible or to great and outweigh possible benefit from the study.
Seltisha Rugley Hate Crimes Sociology 4/12/15 To me the meaning of hate crime is the judgement of others by what race they are or the religion that they come from, or even judging someone because they have a disability. Hate crime can come from people with low self-esteem to make them feel better about themselves. When people face crisis this is when they often change to human tendency. The reason why this happens is to protect their own. This is also the point where they find someone or something to blame it on.
Appendix B Part I: Define the following terms Stereotypes A stereotype is a generalization of a particular group based upon race, ethnicity, gender, or religious beliefs. Prejudice Prejudice is an unfavorable opinion or idea about a certain group of people. An opinion or idea that is resistant to change. Labeling Theory Labeling theory is a social theory which suggests that the reactions of society to certain behaviors plays a major role in defining or “labeling” people a certain way. For example, people get labeled as deviant based on certain behaviors (thief, prostitute, homosexual) and often begin to perform that role based on their “label”.
Discrimination- unlawful discrimination occurs when a person is harassed or treated arbitrarily or different because of their membership in a “protected class”. A protected class is a group of two people who share common characteristics and are protected from discrimination and harassment by the law. Prejudice refers to negative judgments and/or views about a group formed without knowledge, though, or reason. A stereotype is a (often negative) generalization about a group based upon samples that do not represent the group, in which the generalization becomes so well-known it becomes a “conventional image” for the group in question., often accepted as the truth by the illogical bunch. Stereotypes could be a form of prejudice if they are negative generalizations.
Stereotyping is an idea or picture that is held by someone about an individual or group. Stereotyping leads to making assumptions without knowing the individual. Stereotyping means identify people with the same characteristics to be the same instead of individuals. One group who have negative stereotypes are gypsies. The negative stereotypes they have might impact the way they are treated in health and social practitioners.
