Unit 1-5 Prejudice in Action

1) An antipathy based on faulty and inflexible generalizations. 2) Can be felt covertly or expressed overtly. 3) Can be direct towards a group as a whole, or toward an individual because s/he is a member of that group. Prejudice (Allport – 1954)

Four Theories of Prejudice

Exploitation Theory 1) Power is a Scarce Source 2) People innately want to keep their power and status 3) So people suppress the social mobility of the out-group

Scapegoating Theory 1) Prejudiced People are the True Victims 2) They refuse to accept basic responsibility for some society failure (defeat in war / depression) 3) So they shift focus of responsibility to an out-group

Authoritarian Personality Theory 1) Person comes from a strict authoritarian background 2) When that person grows up s/he wants to be the authoritarian of those around them 3) So this person subjects people in an out-group (who are seen as weaker) to their will

Structural Theory 1) Social climate either promotes cultural and ethnic tolerance or intolerance 2) Is their obvious equality – if not people will subjugate others around them 3) Is there a definite hierarchy with a clear pecking order?

What Do People Who Are Prejudice Receive From Their Prejudice?

Ego-Defense Function Protects people’s view of themselves on both a personal and social identity level.

Value-Expressive Function People need to have value and behavioral consistencies in viewing their own cultural values, norms, and practices as the proper & civilized ways of thinking and behaving.

Knowledge Function 1) It takes time and energy to create knowledge 2) People tend to want to defend their knowledge base 3) So, people view others who lack such knowledge as ignorant or deficient

Utilitarian Function 1) Protecting the majority (In-Group) will make things easier on their life 2) In fact, they may be rewarded for doing protecting the in-group

Young Children and Prejudice Adopting: Overt passing on of prejudice ideals to a child. Developing: Creating a threatening and suspicious attitude, so that the child creates her or his own prejudices out of suspicion, fear, and hatred towards another person or group of people.

First Stage of Prejudice Children want to be accepted by their parents Children learn fears of strangers circumspect from others. Children notice differences between themselves and others. Child realizes that a group is hateworthy (even though the child many not know neither the groups name or its identity).

DEALING WITH PREJUDICE

1) We must be honest with ourselves – confront our on biases and ethnocentric attitudes. 2) We should question the contents of our stereotypes and check against our actual interactions with out-group members.

3) We should understand how our negative images concerning out-group members affects our biased attitudes and interactions. 4) Use the principle of heterogeneity to break down the broad social categories.

5) We should use mindful qualifying language when describing out-group/others’ behaviors. 6) We should put ourselves in frequent inter-group contact situations to become comfortable with group-based differences.
