prejudice project
Prejudice Project
  • For the next week, I’d like to you to keep a daily prejudice log in which you record prejudiced comments you’ve heard from others in person (not in a TV show, song, or music video). You should note (a) the context in which you heard the comments (include enough detail to allow me to understand the comments), (b) the speaker who stated them (do not use the speaker’s name, just provide a general description such as “White female” or “Asian male student”), (c) the responder to whom the comments were made (it might be you or someone else nearby), (d) the prejudiced comments, (e) the responder’s response, and (e) how you responded (if you were not the responder). For example, one entry might read as follows:
example of an entry
Example of an Entry
