Omtale Plausible Prejudice
In contrast to most studies of minority, majority relations, the author does not focus on minority groups but on the conventional wisdom of the politically dominant majority population. The essays cover a range of themes, from individualized identification and the struggle to achieve a "sustainable self-image" to national belonging and "race thinking". She argues that social actors construct racial and national boundaries by drawing on everyday-life experiences. This is how racial prejudice can become "plausible prejudice?." With bibliography.
