          Is Racism Part of Your Life?

          September 22, 2005

           

           

          We often think we are open-minded and have more interactions with other races and cultures, when in reality, we are limited in our experiences. Take these tests to see if racism is more a part of your life than you care to admit.

          The Five Name Game

          Name five people whom you know or know of from the following listed groups:

          African American

          Latino/Mexican

          Caucasian/White

          Asian

          Filipino

          Native American

          Muslim

          Jewish

          Vietnamese

          If you cannot name people of different groups, perhaps you tend to stay within a narrow group of friends and acquaintances. Try to reach out to other groups to really get to know them.

           

          The Stereotype Test

          Are stereotypes embedded in your views of other races? If you can finish the following sentences, consider how stereotypes may be affecting how you think of people of other races and cultures.
