Date Created: 10/05/16 race refers to socially define group of people who are generally considered to be physical distinct in  some way, such as skin color, texture of hair and feature of the person face.  They are 2 concept of race: 1. Social­ group of people will not be identified as a race 2. Physical­ every race is generally regarded as being somehow different in appearance from other  race. NOTE: People often think that race is a matter of physical or biologically traits, something that is  genetically determined. Race is defining as the social basis of physical traits. Ethic group: it is a group o0f people who are generally recognized by themselves or by others as a  distinct group, based on entirely on social or culture traits.  It is like race it’s a characteristic that  passes from generation to generation. United states, Irish America, Jewish Americans, and Italian  are example of ethnic group. Measuring race and ethnicity is very difficult to measure.   In sociology majority group mean is any group that is dominant in society­ which is any group that  proportionate share of the wealth, power or social status in that society.  Whereas minority group is where any group assigned an inferior status in society – any group that is less than its proportionate share of the wealth, power or social status in that society. Note that minority often discriminated  against by those in majority. Both minority and majority can be discriminated by race and ethnicity but also discriminated by many others relatively permanent factors such as sex, physical disability  or sex orientation.  A helpful way to remember as Yetman (1991, pg. 11) he stated to think of majority as a synonym  for dominant and minority as a synonym for subordinate. The word subordinate in sociology  doesn’t convey negative connotations but its rather describe a similar and real situation.  Racism – it defines as any attitude, beliefs, behavior or institutional arrangement that favor one  race or ethnic group (majority group) over another (minority group).  Prejudice: attitudinal form of racism, refers to people’s thinking – their attitudes and beliefs that  tend to favor one group over another or to cause unequal treatment on the basis of race.  NOTE: prejudice can be direct or overt, such as disliking a group or believing that is inherently  inferior they are 2 point that you should keep in mind for prejudice is that,  a. The term refers to people’s thinking, their attitudes and beliefs not their behavior. b. It can be overt and very obvious, or it can be subtle and indirect.  Ideological racism/racist ideology refers to specifically to the belief that some races are  biologically, intellectually, or culturally inferior to others.  Individual discrimination­ discrimination is referring to behavior, beliefs, or attitudes.  It can be  defining as any behavior by an individual that leads to unequal treatment because of race or  ethnicity. Eg. Homeowner refuse to sell a Jewish person his or her house.  Institutional discrimination/racism­ our basic social institutions established structures as family, the state, educational system, economic system and religion which perform basic functions in your society, which critical role in creation and perpetuation of racial inequality.
