Your text indicates that bias, prejudice, discrimination, and stereotypes maintain the presence of isms in our social environment.

Unfortunately, it is hard to research a topic when research participants do not want to admit that they hold stereotypes, let alone use them to make life decisions.For this section, you will address religious stereotypes and create a research study that investigates those stereotypes within a religious culture of your choice.
