The Psychology of Prejudice

By Mark P. Zanna; James M. Olson | Go to book overview

our suggestion that the focus of research shift from the discriminator to the discriminated, we advocate minority input into research and policy in this area. Such advocacy is not new ( Lewin, 1946) but is still needed. If the social psychology of prejudice and discrimination is to stand for social justice, social change, and social action, then the notion of affirmative action within our own institutions should not be a point of debate (see Blanchard & Crosby, 1989) but a point of priority.
