Are local norms developed in a standardized way to avoid bias?

  • Community norms are based on majority acceptance.

    Local norms are developed in a standardized way to avoid bias. Local norms are developed based on what the majority of people are doing in their everyday lives. Although the community might be downtrodden, to shame the majority in a community would create a sense of extreme bias against them.

  • Some norms are bias

    No, I do not believe that local norms are developed in a standardize way in order to avoid bias. Norms are developed through common practice of those in that particular group. This in itself can cause bias to occur. Norms are just the way that the major thinks that things should be done, it does not neccessarily make the the correct way things should be done.

  • All About Bias

    I do not believe local norms are developed in a standardized way to avoid bias. I believe the idea of local norms is all about bias, the whole concept is a problem. People move and relocate often, no area can be conceptualized by stereotypes the way local norms tries to make it seem.

  • It is just what is expected.

    No, local norms are not developed in a standardized way to avoid bias, because local norms are not developed that carefully. Local norms are simply what people are used to. There is nothing about their being local that necessarily makes them wise and true local norms. Local norms are more like stereotypes and the way they've always done it.
