Chapter 11 Barriers and Unproductive Assumptions Racial assumption: Stereotyping: categorize information in an effort to make sense of information to which we are exposed - Stereotypes that affect our interracial interactions on an interpersonal level are often referred to as individual racism - impede one of the most effective means for improving race relations Interpersonal interaction is quite effective in improving race relations on a more humanistic level. Cultural Racism: All aspects of one culture and heritage are deemed culturally acceptable, thus negating the value of all other racial/ethnic groups Problematic Communication Approaches Race does create a barrier but it’s not a racism type barrier. It’s an uncertainty, a lack of comfort or a lack of familiarity barrier. - apprehension is essentially “the fear associated with either real or anticipated interaction with people from different groups, especially different cultural and ethnic groups”
