Discrimination, as will be evident over the historical period covered in this discussion, is not static. It is not necessarily about color but is about social values and has its root in economic exploitation. The persistence of discrimination mimics, in many of the same ways, the manner in which we make our purchasing decisions. People “buy in” to stereotypes and marketed perceptions.

This seminar addresses how social values have impacted economic outcomes as these relate to specific classifications of people and in turn, how the economic status of groups has impacted social perception. The discussion highlights the U.S. experience of African Americans, Native peoples, individuals of Mexican and Puerto Rican classification, Chinese, Japanese, and East Indians. Participants are exposed to the causal relationship between economic disparity, regulatory actions, and variations in ethnic integration within the U.S. through the evaluation of differences in mode of immigration, initial and longitudinal human capital endowment, and discriminatory victimization.

This program will be conducted by Dr. Madhavi Venkatesan.
