discrimination

unjustifiable negative behavior toward a group or its members.

ethnocentrism

a belief in the superiority of one's own ethnic and cultural group, and a corresponding disdain for all other groups.

group-serving bias

explaining away outgroup members' positive behaviors; also attributing negative behaviors to their dispositions (while excusing such behavior by one's own group).

ingroup bias

the tendency to favor one's own group.

ingroup

"us"-a group of people who share a sense of belonging, a feeling of common identity.

just-world phenomenon

the tendency of people to believe the world is just and that people therefore get what they deserve and deserve what they get.

outgroup homogeneity effect

perception of outgroup members as more similar to one another than are ingroup members. Thus "they are alike; we are diverse."

outgroup

"them"-a group that people perceive as distinctively different from or apart from their ingroup.

own-race bias

the tendency for people to more accurately recognize faces of their own race.

a negative prejudgment of a group and its individual members.
