Children learn stereotypes and become prejudiced by, the Social Learning View, which suggests that people learn prejudice and stereotypes of other groups the same way they learn about other attitudes, beliefs and values. Children learn stereotypes and prejudice by the behavior of the teaching parents, other adults, and peers. Furthermore, by direct reinforcement, and observation of the reinforcement given to others, people learn about the members of other groups; this begins at an early age. Another factor how children learn stereotypes and prejudice is through television. Television portrays other minority groups in shallow-stereotyped ways. African-American males are portrayed as sexually obsessed, shiftless, and speaking in jive, Italians-Godfather-like Italian mobsters, Jewish-greedy Jewish bankers, and Hispanics in criminal or menial jobs (Alexander, Brewer, & Livingston, 2005: Jost, 2005).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
