Is voicing a personal opinion or a thought considered racism? One’s belief makes them feel offended about a particular thing or topic. “Campus Racism” by Nikki Giovanni and “Kids, you can’t read That Book!” by Tara E. Ketch are the pieces which touch on similar topics with different styles. There are three subjects I want to discuss about these writings which as follows Racism, Discrimination and Beliefs among people.
Education has importance in life because it gives people the skills and tools they need to be successful. Reading, writing, calculating, and communicating would not exist without education. People would also not be able to perform jobs competently, accurately and safely. In “America Skips School” by Benjamin R. Barber, Barber believes America needs to get their act together. People need to stop making excuses and calling their problems an “education crisis.”
Since the beginning of time, African-Americans have been seen as inferior, incapable, and inhumane. After the Civil Rights Movement, the issue of racism was broadcasted internationally, and people globally saw how African-Americans were treated due to the color of their skin. Once the movement was over; African-Americans would have another issue to tackle; societal advancement. History books suggest that racism was finally over after the Civil Rights Movement, but racial bias is still embedded in white society. Racism may not be as harsh, or publically displayed, but African-Americans are not advancing at the same rates as whites.
Throughout America, there has been many inequities issues with education, such as racial discrimination and poverty. Racial discrimination has been an issue throughout America, it has caused an impact upon Blacks, in the south, with less knowledge. Poverty has come to be a conflict, or commotion, with the variety of students in the south. Inequity in education has been an effect with the lack of fairness or injustice between the education of the north and south. This remarkably contrary, due to racial discrimination and poverty.
The Wire, broadcasted by HBO, is a television series set in Baltimore, Maryland. Each season of The Wire focuses on a different problem in the city of Baltimore and its relationship to law enforcement. These problems are : the illegal drug trade, the city government and bureaucracy, the school system, and the print news media. The show is about how institutions have an effect on individuals. The Wire is acclaimed for its realistic portrayal of urban life.
Racial Inequality is still a problem according to the news. On the news it talks about cops shooting black people when they are not doing anything wrong and on top of that they don’t even have any weapons on them. Racial inequality is still a problem in America, but there are ways to fight against it. A look at recent police shootings involving black men article and the school segregation article both prove that Racial inequality still exists in America.
I totally agree with that Herbert is saying in this article. The way school systems are today is disgusting. They are not pushing kids to do their best work. Being a senior in high school and going to college right after was a huge change. High school does not get you prepared for college.
How does Culture influence behavior? INTRODUCTION What is culture? Culture is the way of life, especially the general customs and beliefs, of a particular group of people at a particular time.
The first thing I think when talking about my family’s culture is farming and living in the country. I also start to think about where our ancestors came from and why they decided to come to America. Another thing that comes to mind is the morals my family believes in that our culture affect. Everything that comes to my mind is something that involves communication and is a huge part of my family. But after reading Chapter 3 I have learned that there is a lot to our culture than where we live or where we came from.
Culture and Society The culture that I am identifying is Rwandan culture as I am Rwandan. The main things that makes me part of this culture is that I speak Kinyarwanda, and this help me to interact with people from my culture. According to Knoji (2015), language is taken as one main component of every culture. Another thing that makes me part of this culture is that I believe that a girl should not sit down while a family house is not well cleaned. In Rwandan culture it is known that a girl should not wait for her brothers to clear the house.
