Psychology of Prejudice: New Research by Travis Draper
With the dramatic increase in the multiracial population, researchers are exploring the unique interpersonal and societal racial dynamics that this population evokes and participates in. Similar to other racial groups, the experience of discrimination and prejudice of biracial/multiracial individuals can have negative consequences for well-being and general mental health. This book discusses the psychology of prejudice. Some of the topics included in this book are patterns of prejudice in the lives of American Jews; the dynamics of prejudice against biracial individuals; prejudice, discrimination and mental health within the lesbian, gay and bisexual community; education's effects on the racial prejudice of blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and whites in the United States; and psychodynamic and social processes involved in prejudice.
