Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A scapegoat is somebody who is blamed, although they are usually innocent. Often, we as individuals blame other people if things go wrong. Scapegoating (from the verb "to scapegoat") is a recent coinage for the practice of singling out any party for unmerited negative treatment or blame as a scapegoat. Scapegoating may be conducted by individuals against individuals (e.g., "Jimmy did it, not me!"), individuals against groups (e.g., "I failed because our school favors boys"), groups against individuals (e.g., "Jane was the reason our team didn't win"), and groups against groups (e.g., "Immigrants are taking all of the jobs").show more
