Abstract

It is hypothesized that a name identified with a culture, specifically the Hispanic culture, receives more stereotype than a name that is of Caucasian decent. Participants will be conveniently drawn from a University in the Northwest. Participants will read one of two stories that describe a scenario in which an individual is implicated. The participants will then fill out a questionnaire pertaining to the individuals in the scenario. It is anticipated that the results will support the hypothesis of stereotype being more prevalent amongst individuals with a culturally tied name. The findings will supply additional research to the field of stereotype against a name.
