Race Is a Sensitive Issue Essay

Excerpt from Essay :

However, individuals who exhibit a "high level of aggression and antisocial behavior" are more likely to commit hate crimes, especially when fueled by drugs or alcohol," (Brehm 2007).

Research plainly shows that race matters, and that racism is still an important topic for psychologists and sociologists. Psychologists can help initiate race-related discussions in group counseling settings to help participants share their views, as well as in one-on-one counseling settings. Similarly, psychologists can work with schools to encourage open communications among students.
