Cultural Prejudice & Discrimination -- Research Starters Sociology

By: Mandel, Ilanna;

2009 / EBSCO

Description

Cultural prejudice and discrimination challenge us in ways that other issues do not, as they go to the core of our struggle to get along. One of the great barriers to eliminating prejudice and discrimination is the ghost of slavery. The effects of slavery were not resolved with emancipation or with the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Prejudice and discrimination against people of color persists in America today. Along with problems experienced by African-Americans, people of other cultural backgrounds such as Jewish people, Hispanic-Americans, people with disabilities, and many others have experienced widespread discrimination. America's broad open-door policy brought millions of people into America but also opened the door for an increase in prejudice and discrimination against the new cultures.
