Today we live in a world that undeniably diverse, especially in the United States of America. We strive to have a peaceful coexistence of diverse ethnic groups, as we embrace our similarities yet still hold our differences close. Historically, the United States has had to deal with many issues of racism and ethnic diversity, as immigrance has taken place which has been chosen or forced for many people. Now, we currently hold a heightened awareness of diversity, and start a discussion of how to approach ethnic diversity. Many feel that we should hold a ?colorblind? view, where all should be seen as equal, regardless of race, color, sex, or creed, while others feel that we should approach things with a more ?multicultural? view point in which we embrace our differences.

They do not change to serve another, but more to serve themselves by being consistent with social norms and fitting in better (DeMarree, 2005). [...]


[...] Upon completion of the implicit and explicit tests, they will be given a self monitoring scale. The IAT uses pictures of both blacks and whites and then words that can either be positively or negatively connotated. The participant is supposed to select a key (one being good and one being bad depending on the stimulus) as fast as they can upon seeing the stimulus. First they are supposed to associate white with good and black bad and in a second round the roles reverse and white with bad and black good. [...]
