The Role of Race and Racial Prejudice in Recognizing Other People

  • John C. Brigham
Part of the THE NEBRASKA SYMPOSIUM ON MOTIVATION book series (NSM)

Harmonious interactions between individuals and between groups of people depend upon, among other things, the ability to recognize individuals, distinguish them from each other, and treat each individual appropriately. If one is unable to distinguish members of a particular group from each other, then it is difficult to treat each person with the individuality that he or she deserves. Failing to treat a person as a unique individual is often seen as a central characteristic of stereotyping and prejudice.
