By: Suh, Rana;

Ethnocentrism describes an individual or group's tendency to see their own group or culture as superior in culture and practices. Racism is a belief that human beings can be divided into various races, and that certain races are inferior to others. Racism has been blamed for various discriminatory policies throughout American history, including eugenics, slavery, segregation, and detainment. Today ethnocentrism and racism continue to be important in discussions pertaining to issues such as terrorism, education, and social justice.
