Part 1: Discrimination in the real world
Asch, Milgrim, and Zambardo created experiments the results of which forever altered the landscape of modern psychology. The lessons learned by their groundbreaking studies have applications in the real world, not just when studying evil regimes in history, but in the prejudice and discrimination that tear apart our country today. Consider the deaths of African Americans in recent years which led to both the Black Lives Matter Movement and significant increase in the deaths of policemen. Or the opposing viewpoints on allowing Syrian refugees, or any Muslims at all, into the U.S. Most, if not all of us, can identify a time when we felt discriminated against. And I fear that most of us can also recall a time when, for any number of reasons, we held to a prejudice, or participated in discriminating against someone else. This activity will explore the social psychology involved in those personal experiences, and also examine other real world examples of prejudice and discrimination.
