MULTICULTURALISM 2
Emergence of subordinate groups in the society cannot be overlooked or underrated.
Minority groups emerge in society due to various factors. First, migration. Immigrants often find
themselves a minority in their new country. Religious affiliations, physical or cultural traits may
often separate the immigrants from the dominant group. The second factor is colonialism. It
refers to rule of a nation by outsiders without involving actual incorporation into the majority
peoples’ nation. This hence leads to creation of inferiority and superiority in a society.
Globalization refers to the global integration of cultures, social movements, government policies,
and financial markets via ideological exchange and trade. The increased interborder crossing by
money and people has significantly reduced the difference between permanent and temporary
migration.
Prejudice is the irrational feeling, thought or opinion formed about a group or an
individual beforehand and lacks enough knowledge reason or fact. An example is when members
of particular group are perceived as inferior based on ethnicity, nationality, religion, or class
rather than on personal experience. On the other hand, discrimination refers to singling out of an
individual against or for, based on different factors such as category, group, or status regardless
of their own merit. Discrimination of people is based on their age, marital sex, clothing, or their
socio-economic status.
Affirmative action refers to putting in efforts to promote progress or the rights of the
subordinate groups. It is the action of enhancing educational and employment opportunities of
subordinate groups that have been prejudiced or discriminated. Considering inter-group
competition, providing meritocratic standards and individual rights bear prime competitive merit
the superior group and effectively maintain their favored status.
