I’m working on a social science Discussion and need support to help me learn.
After reading Mooney, Knox, & Schacht, Chapter #9 you have learned about race and ethnic relations. Prejudice is predetermined negative attitudes about an entire category of people. Discrimination is actions that result in different treatment of an entire category of people. Therefore, prejudice is an attitude; while discrimination is an action. Although, often prejudice and discrimination occur together, prejudice does occur without discrimination, and discrimination does occur without prejudice. In the reply box, considering social movements such as Black Lives Matter, state if you believe there is a decline in racism in the contemporary US. Why or why not? Support your answer with information from chapter #9. Cite the information with the page number and textbook edition you are using, for example (pg.100, ed.10). at least 350+ words.
Let me know if you need a few pages from the book.
