Q: 2. What is ethnocentrism? In what ways can ethnocentrism be detrimental to a society?
A: Ethnocentrism is simply the belief that one's group or culture is superior to another. This can be applied to race, different countries, or even to sexist or ageism issues. [ Typically, ethnocentrism is most commonly applied to race and other cultures/countries. Ethnocentrism is defined as a bad term. Wikipedia states, "The fallacy of ethnocentrism is committed by people who exaggerate the role
of their own group in its interactions with other groups." However, in some cases, ethnocentrism can actually be a positive way of thinking.Ethnocentrism can lead to a group thinking they are self-righteous and better than another group. It also gives lead way to judge another culture's way of life. An example of this is when Adolph Hitler and his Nazi followers thought they were better then the Jewish people and even judged the Jewish people to be lower than dirt. This case of ethnocentrism lead to the horrifying deaths of about six million Jewish people. Hitler's ethnocentric mindset eventually led to World War 2. Another positive thing birthed from ethnocentrism is patriotism. While extreme nationalism can lead to wars, having a sense of pride in one's country is always good for the society. Since Americans think they have the best culture, they tend to strut it around. With strutting around also comes a better lifestyle. ]
