The Treatment of Race, Racial Differences, and Racism in Applied Psychology

Abstract

This chapter discusses patterns that are often observed from the study of human differences that can be organized by racial groupings. Debates over the validity of the concept of race are divided into two camps called “race deniers” and “race acknowledgers.” This chapter reviews how concepts about race, racial differences, and racism are discussed within the social sciences, generally, and cultural competence advocacy, specifically.
