Prejudice, Assimilation, and Discrimination in a Global Context

 

The interaction of diverse racial and ethnic groups throughout the world is often associated with a history of prejudice and conflict. Many factors have contributed to the nature of this interaction such as colonialism, modernization, economic competition, labor demands, language, religion, ideology, and national policies. South Africa and Brazil provide contrasting cases studies. Understanding their recent history can be instructive in informing how race and ethnic challenges are addressed in other parts of the world.

 

In this week’s Discussion, you will analyze the historical background and treatment of racial and ethnic groups within South Africa, Brazil, or a country of your choosing, other than the country where you currently reside.

 

Note: In Week 3 and Week 4 Discussions, you are required to choose different racial or ethnic groups to analyze (a United States group in Week 3 and a Non-United States group in Week 4). For your Course Project you must use one of the groups you chose in either Week 3 or 4 to be the focus of your analysis.

 

To prepare:

 

  • Choose South Africa, Brazil, or an alternative choice (excluding Canada).
  • Review this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Consider the issues related to the group you chose with regard to their experience of prejudice, discrimination, and assimilation.
