Document Summary

If a child hears a parent express negative attitudes about people who hold different religious beliefs from their own, or sees a parent avoid interactions with people with such beliefs, the child is likely to form negative beliefs about those people: whites who hear someone express racial views express weaker antiracist positions than those without such exposure, social learning is one explanation for why people are often willing to express certain types of prejudice, but not others. Social categorization: the practice of classifying people into in groups or out groups based on attributes that the person has in common with the in group or out group: social categorization can be done on meaningless grounds, such as eye colour, shoe size or province you live, the classification of people into 2 groups has two consequences that contributes to stereotyping: the outgroup homogeneity and in group favourtism.
