According to Coloroso, genocide takes place in ten main stages. These are classification, symbolization, discrimination, dehumanization, organization, polarization, preparation, persecution, extermination, and denial. These stages show how genocide is developed since it involves a large segment of the society or state ganging up against another. Cooper focuses on symbolization which refers to the names and other forms of identification assigned to the classifications of people. In order for the prejudice which precedes genocide to start, people are distinguished into various classifications based on race, religion, ethnicity, or nationality.
