Example text

First, these accounts represent targers perceptions, and, as such, they reflect their personal experience and interpretation of events. Second, these accounts can provide insights into the psychological processes of identifying events as prejudicial or discriminatory. For instance, it is informative to examine the decision-making processes that lead to attributions of prejudice.

As Pettigrew and Martin (1987) note with regard to avoiding prejudice, "Avoidance learning reduces the possibility of experiencing corrective situations, such as acceptance and positive interaction" (p. 54). Second, schematic processing, such as interpreting ambiguous information in line with one's beliefs or focusing on confirming rather than disconfirming evidence, may make it difficult to change decision criteria. Confirmatory biases can decrease the likelihood that people will notice changes in the occurrence of prejudice and discrimination.
