Part II

1. What are some of the ways groups of people are identified?

There are several ways that groups of people are identified are by race, ethnicity, religion, and gender. Each group has a minority and though they each considered the minority, but in many areas the minorities are constitute the numerical majority. Racial groups are groups of people that are socially set apart because of obvious physical differences. People are identified by their religious belief. Religious groups are the third basis for minority group status. Another way people identified people in groups are by gender. Males are the social majority and females are relegated to the position of social minority. Women are thought of as a minority even though they do not have all the characteristics. Many cultural groups are identified because of the way they speak or because they do not speak the same way as other. People are also grouped by the looking different from others or because of what someone of the same race or origin has done.

2. Why do people label and group other people?

People label and grouped by other people because of their race, ethnicity, religion, and gender. Racial groups are labeled because of their skin color, hair color, height, and even weight. I do not believe that people should be labeled because of their skin tone, skin color, or their looks. People are also labeled or judge because of their family history or because of the acts of someone that looks like them are from the same religion. People may even label others because of who they married. When one race marries someone of a different race can cause people to place judgment on them among family members and others that do not believe in bi-racial marriage. Ethnic can be set apart from others because of their national origin or distinctive cultural patterns. Religious groups are labeled and grouped because others do not have the same beliefs or faith, and may worship a different Lord/God then they do.
