Description:

This paper examines the way that race and ethnicity contribute to the development of deviance The author argues that race and ethnicity indirectly intertwine in unequal access to social rewards and other various forms of wealth, power, and prestige thereby causing deviance and violence. This paper defines race and ethnicity in the realm of deviance and analyzes why and how individuals and groups discriminate.

From the paper:

"Why is there inequality among men? Where do its causes lie? Can it be reduced or abolished altogether? Do we have to accept it as a necessary element in the structure of human society? Humans are unequal in many ways. They differ in physical features and in mental capacities, talents, strengths, and so on. All of these inequalities are a product of both social learning and genetic inheritance. More importantly, race and ethnicity become entwined in the unequal access to social rewards and other various forms of wealth, power, and prestige."
