Individual Prejudice And Institutional Discrimination: Case Study

184 Words1 Page
I enjoyed reading your post. You provided great definitions of both individual prejudice and institutional discrimination. There are two “forms” or dimensions of prejudice. One form of prejudice is known as feeling or affective prejudice (Healey & O’Brien, 2015, p. 21). This is where one has negative feelings towards certain groups and/or people of that group. The second form of prejudice is cognitive. This is thinking a certain way about certain groups and/or people of that group (Healey & O’Brien, 2015, p. 21). Institutional discrimination, like you had mentioned, is discriminating against a larger group of people. This can occur for many reasons, such as gender, disabilities, race, and ethnicity (“Walking in Another’s Shoes,” 2015).
