Unit 1 Assignment 1 by Skylar McVicar

Group B:

Question: How does human connection affect prejudice?

Agree on: Many people today acknowledge their conscious bias against minority groups (aka racism); however, when the same people have the opportunity to outwardly discriminate, they chose and/or can learn not to because of the empathy and compassion that connects mankind. Brooks, Stevenson, and Morrison all imply that human connection can destroy injustice and bigotry.

Disagree on: Brooks, Stevenson, and Morrison disagree on how to combat innate bias. Brooks encourages people to appreciate their differences. Stevenson urges people to keep hope and continue the fight for justice by listening to different everybody’s story. Morrison suggests learning from history to avoid a close-minded and ignorant attitude toward different people in the present day.
