There is closed captioning for this video. Please notify your instructor if you can’t access this video.
This is the same video you watched for the part 1 of this research project. You might want to watch it again, before you begin writing the final paper.
Research these topics and address all these questions below in your paper:
Compare and contrast the concepts: prejudices, stereotypes, and discrimination?
What does the author, Paul Bloom, say in the required video about prejudices and biases? Please make sure to describe specific parts of the video.
According to the literature and research, why might we innately be prone to stereotyping and prejudices? How might stereotyping and prejudices be part of a survival mechanism? What does the Evolutionary theory suggest is the role evolution plays in prejudices and biases?
According to literature and research, how does culture and learning play a role in prejudices, stereotyping, and racism? How does external factors, like religion, the news media, social media sites, politics, etc. play a role in stereotypes and discrimination?
What is Implicit Bias? How might implicit biases play a role in stereotyping, prejudices, discrimination and racism?
What is the Social Identity theory and how does it relate to biases? What also is in-group vs. out-group, and how does it apply to prejudices, discrimination and racism?
Research Stereotype Threat. What does the research show about how stereotype threat can impact individuals and groups of people and the way they behave and perform?
What are the effects of prejudices, stereotypes, and discrimination on individuals, groups of people, and to our society as a whole?
Evaluate real world stereotyping, prejudices and/or discrimination to discuss how these terms and concepts above may have played a role in real life situations and how the people involved were/are impacted? (see suggestions below)
Understanding that we all have innate and/or learned prejudice/bias, what does the research suggest we can do to combat them and make them less influential?
Lastly, in your conclusion, discuss what is your own reaction to the video and the research. Where do you believe we get our prejudices from? Also describe your own personal prejudices and biases and evaluate where you might have adopted these biases.
