Stereotypes, prejudice or discrimination

Identify a recent news event that depicts stereotypes, prejudice or discrimination. Provide the article describing the event you’ve chosen. Briefly describe the news event and indicate the basis of discrimination (for example, social class, ethnicity, gender, age, race, sexual orientation or religion). Apply one of the social psychological theories to explain why an individual/organization in this situation was influenced by prejudice. How does the level of social diversity in the relevant environment described in the event (e.g., family, school, work or community) explain why discrimination occurred?
