People who have similar faith, personality and behaviours are more attractive. ‘When communicators are attracted to others they will converge in their conversations.’ (Turner & West, 2010) Nevertheless, people do not need to converge with their interlocutors all the time, to what extent people converge depends on their ‘desired social distance’. (Pardo, 2016)
One fourth of the way around the world, away from Darfur is a similar problem concerning the Hmongs. Hmongs have resided in southern Asia for ages. They have done many great and if America wins, they would be responsible of building schools and sending teachers over to educate the Hmongs’ way of living. If America loses the war in Vietnam, Americans promised to welcome Hmong people over to America to escape any further harm or problems. Not many people know about this promise, but Hmong parents remind their kids everyday that if their children were to go to school and have racial discrimination against their language or culture, their children should remember the great things they did for America and challenge the saying that Hmongs should return to their homeland.
Instead of being segregated and apart from others, it brought every race together. " In 1958, 44 percent of whites said they would move if a black family became their next-door neighbor; today the figure is 1 percent." (www.brookings.edu). Knowing that people like you in regard of your race is meaningful, since they accept you for who you are and not for the color your skin might be. Being humble and not judging people for a simple color, shows respect to others and support the claim that racial prejudice is getting better as years pass
When you are raised in only one culture/group, it 's easy to fall in the trap of believing that it 's somehow superior to all other cultures. Believing so makes your world smaller and less interesting. When your spouse comes from a different ethnic/cultural groups, it exposes you to a completely new world , which broadens your horizons and makes you a better person. Being in an interracial relationship exposes you to new things such as learning about another culture or religion, being exposed to new ways of thinking which can help you in the future, becoming stronger in what you believe, and also teaching other around you that the relationship is like any other, with challenges but worth it. Also, nowadays it’s kind of hard to find someone of one full race because of the popularity of mixed people.
Children are most likely to realize their dreams when they are under the love and care of parents rather than when they wander around alone. Usually, children without parents end up making wrong choices that pose consequences in their lives. Parents who adopt children are very meaningful in the lives of the children, since the parents selflessly and lovingly chose them regardless of the lack of the blood ties (Berry, 1993). Another advantage of adoption is that children who were born to families who are irresponsible and poverty-stricken get a chance of joining families consisting of committed parents and very stable families. Moreover, financially and morally stable families offer children better opportunities in life than families that may easily fail to set moral standards for their children.
A multicultural society comes with many great things, and an obvious advantage is the promotion of diversity and being open minded. Societies such as the Norwegian one can truly benefit from learning about tolerance and being broad minded, as Norwegians can be very xenophobic. However, with a much more diverse society people will hopefully become much more educated and tolerant about cultures other than their own. With more tolerance and education, optimistically stereotypes, prejudice and racism will eventually fade and people will become more accepting of each other’s differences. You could argue that this would have very little output in some cultures, countries or societies, however I believe that with the younger generations people will soon become more tolerant and less racist.
When it comes to adoption to me I believe it can either be a sad situation or a good outcome for the child, but to me having to see a child leave their parent is heartbreaking but if it is what is best for everyone than in that type of situation it is better to give the child up. Personally I do not know anyone who has done an interracial adoption but, was never against them. For me I think it would be very hard to go back and see someone you have not seen since you were given up for adoption and do not know if I could actually have the courage to do it. I think when it comes to interracial adoption you can look at it many different ways and come up with many different pros and cons when thinking about it. One negative for sure could be that you may never know your actual cultures ways and values for sure if your adopted parents are not willing to practice or even talk about where you may of came from, but in that situation it could also make the adoption a little easier on the child and also the parents who adopt the child because it could make the process go a little smoother and have the child get to know their new family more and their way of doing things.
In order to fit in immigrants have tried to incorporate into the community, and integrating has become easier with the second generation then it was the first and easier with the third and so on, because they start to absorb the prevailing culture, language and follow the supreme majority in order to be more efficient members of the society along with kipping a part of their own civilization and inheritance alive, this has not completely functioned because minorities keep forming a big portion of the country and effect its development, progress, enlargement, growth and
During my time in Vegas, our life was very hard because my moms boyfriend was extremely abusive of this. In between all the times I was hit and yelled at by him, she would care for me and do nice things for me like this. There were times I did not think she cared about me but remembering that meal brought back my hopes and reassurance. Over time she would remember how much I liked the food and would get it for me whenever things were really rough.
When there first told me I really didn’t want to move because I had a good amount of friends that I had and I liked the people around me. My parents told me its gonna be okay you 're going to make a lot of new friends at your new school. I always kept denying it because I was always the shy kid growing up. As the weeks went on and we finally moved to our new house on 1 August 2008. My mother, sister and I drove up to our new local school that was 10 minutes away from our house, the name of school was Fremont elementary school.
Being from a Latin and Hispanic background, it’s hard for me to pick what race I am. If you look at my mom, you would think she’s a white European, even though she is from Argentina. On the other hand, my dad has darker skin, he looks more Mexican, but these are not races. When people ask me what race I am, I usually say I’m White Hispanic. I grew up being told I was white, and have experienced white privilege, so I do not consider myself a person of color.
