      • Religiously prejudiced employers will not give jobs to certain religious groups
      • Prejudiced landlords could refuse accommodation to certain ethnic or religious groups
      • If teachers are prejudiced their pupils could not achieve the results and jobs which they are capable of
      • Prejudiced police officers could potentially discriminate against certain groups e.g. stop and search
    • Effects
      • If groups feel they are not treated fairly they will feel alienated and work against society
      • Some politicians believe that young black people turn to crime because they do not feel that they can get well paid jobs
      • Some politicians believe some young people turn to extremist groups because they feel that they cannot succeed in a prejudiced society, this could led to terrorism
      • It can lead to the rise of groups like the BNP which stirs up hatred
      • If a multi-ethnic society is to function well, all members must be treated well
    • Benefits of a multi-ethnic society
      • Less chance of war
      • Good progress: new ideas and new ways
