Chapter 8 Race and Ethnicity Concepts of Race and Ethnicity  Historical thinking about race  Racial categories o These are socially constructed  Racial and Ethnic Identities Race  A social definition (construction) based on some real or presumed physical, biological  characteristic of a person, such as skin color or hair texture, as well as shared lineage Majority – Minority Relations  The Social Construction of Difference o Products of social definitions  Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Discrimination o Stereotype – a generalization about an entire category of people that is thought to  apply to everyone in that category o Prejudice – preconceived negative attitudes, beliefs, and feelings toward  minorities, typically derived from unfounded opinions or stereotypes o Discrimination – the unfavorable, unjust treatment of minorities arising from the  negative stereotypes associated with prejudice  Intersectionality o The idea that members of any given minority group are affected by the nature of  their position in other systems or other forms of social inequality  Patterns of Interaction o Pluralism – many groups are able to coexist without any of them losing their  individual qualities o Assimilation – a minority group takes on the characteristics of the dominant group and leaves its old ways behind  Can be voluntary or involuntary o Segregation – the physical and social separation of majority and minority groups o Genocide – an active, systematic attempt to eliminate an entire group of people Institutional Racism  Race­based discrimination that results from day to day operation of social institutions and social structures and their rules, policies, and practices o Education – implicit bias due to race o Labor – may deny workers with Hispanic or black names o Criminal Justice o Health Care White Racial Frame  An array of racist ideas, racial stereotypes, racialized stories and tales, racist images,  powerful racial emotions, and various inclinations to discriminate against blacks (or  others). o Example: Distinction in grocery stores between “normal” and “ethnic” foods o “Where are you really from?” Immigration  Why do people immigrate? There is a push and a pull. o Push: To escape war, famine, bad economy, or just general bad circumstances. o Pull: There is something good about the destination – it is an attractive place  Diaspora – dispersal, typically involuntary, of a racial or ethnic population from its  traditional homeland and over a wide geographic area o “Trail of Tears” o Japanese Internment o Operation “Wetback”  Operation to reduce the Mexican immigrant population in the Southwest – deported 1.3 million, but many of those were U.S. citizens o Orientalism  Representations of Asia is a stereotyped way that is regarded as  embodying a colonialist attitude
