Racism Racism as power (consider power and authority) Prejudice—attitude about another person or group, usually negative Discrimination—policy (requires authority) and the ability to enact a policy in a way that could harm a person or people. (Not serving people) Ethnicity Barth—ethnicity exists when a group of people claim (a person must claim this for themselves) a certain ethnic identity for themselves and are defined that way by others ‘we’ feeling and ‘they’ feeling not a politically correct term for race Ethnic groups can define themselves in any way they choose (location, shared history, language, etc) Ethnic groupings can change through time or place (requirements to be identified with group may change) Ethnicity is not nationality Multi-Ethnic Areas Assimilation (minor cultural group taking on the cultural norms of the majority group, eventually the (m) group dissolves; no more difference) Almost always bloody; not a peaceful affair Multiculturalism: a minority culture being hyphenated into another culture
