Quotes:
"What people believe to be true is true in its consequences"
-W.I. Thomas
Alexis deToteville (?)
"I'm obliged to confess that I do not believe the abolition of slavery as a means to aid the
racial issues of the states".... "If they [blacks] cannot become the equals of rights, they will
soon become their enemies"
Susan Sonetang
"I do not think white america is commited to granting quality to black negroes"
Albert Einstein
"If my theory of relativity is proven sucessful, Germany will claim me as German, and
France will declare that I am a citizen of the world...."
On Stereotypes:
Ways of thinking about different racial and ethnic groups. They contribute to racism.
Margaret Mead
"Children must have the opportunity to learn that within each range, some people are
loathsome and some people are wonderful"
David Cronenburg
"all stereotypes turn out to be true. This is a horrifying thing about life. All those things you
fought against in your youth, stereotypes become stereotypes because they are true"
Ricky Martin
"I have been a victim of stereotypes. I come from Latin America and we have been
considered losers, drug traffickers and that' s not good because its generalizing"

On melting pot:
(one of the major differences between Canada and the US is that the US tries to assimilate
everyone by plan. Canada is to the contrary- multiculturalism)
Israel Zanglo:
"America is Gods crucible. A great melting pot where all the races of Europe are melting
and reforming"
Jesse Jackson:
"I hear that melting pot stuff alot, and all I can say is: we haven't melted".
Buffy St. Marie
"Here the melting pot stands open if you're willing to get bleached first"
"in Canada we have never been a melting pot. In fact, we're more like a tossed salad".

TEXT NOTES:
Problems of exclusion and discrimination, racism, prejudice, and conflict.
Prejudice against minority groups:
Unjust and unfair
Creates conflict between majority and minority groups
Outcomes (discrimination, conflict, exclusion, hatred, distrust) are politically and
economically wasteful
Race:
A social construction?
Not a biological feature- merely phenotypic.
Cultural and personality dispositions are not genetically based.
Is race meaningful?
It's a subjective factor: as long as people continue to believe it matters, it will matter.
Why did we invent and preserve the idea of race? To maintain social and emotional power?
Ethnicity:
Race does not necessarily equal ethnicity.
