When you educated and accept the idea that equality among the people must exist, the upcoming generations will carry on the idea that we are equal if accepted by people now as the young learn from their parents and adults. If segregation is eliminated and people had hope in each other, people could accomplish many things working together as a group. This is how racism could be stopped and together with one hand we can accomplish way more in this
Carson is an abhorrent candidate that refutes the principles that America is based upon. Carson is solely known for his separation of conjoined twins, which rocketed his success and stardom; despite the odds of him being a minority in the largely white dominated workforce. Carson also faced racial discrimination as he became intelligent and rose through the social ladder. Anyone would think a fellow minority would support a grievously oppressed group. Muslims are often classed as terrorists and nonconformist, solely looking to cause collateral damage in core countries.
Reflection Precis 5, “Contemporary Racial Framing” (March 20-22, 2018) 108788 Part I: During these two lectures, Dr. Jendian talked about our hidden biases and the way we denied discrimination. According to Joe R. Feagin (123), “In more recent surveys, black and white Americans still differ dramatically in how they view discrimination.” Feagin stated that in a survey, whites responded that Latino Americans, Asian Americans, and African Americans now have equal opportunities in life as white people. However, Feagin argues, government statistical data indicate otherwise. Feagin clarifies this erroneous belief can come from misleading media reports which blind whites from not seeing that blacks have disadvantages in most areas of economic and political life. Therefore, Dr. Jendian mentioned, we need to understand we do not live in the same reality as others.
Reflection Précis 1, Race and Ethnicity Part I: During the last lecture sessions, Dr. Jendian talked about appreciating diversity, race, ethnicity, and racism. In his lecture, we learned that many people believe that race is something biological. However, the true reality is that race is a social construct and not a biological one. For example, in the documentary Race: The Power of An Illusion, we were able to understand that there are more variations among people in the same “race” than with people from another “race.” However, physical differences, for example, the most obvious skin color, has created prejudices against minority groups. These prejudices that “white” people carry leads to discrimination against people of color.
Because of his believes Boas wanted outsider to look at each race individually not as a whole, and come up with their own reactions as to what they found compared to what we classify as social standards during that time in history during the nineteenth century. However, things soon changed, and during the twentieth century things took on yet another turn for anthropologists, for they believed that their “race” unlike any other; was above the rest. “This is known as racialism, the belief that there are distinctive biological “races” and that one can rank and categorize superior and inferior biological “races” within the human species” (Scupin, 2012, pg. 4). It was then that everything about “race”, ethnicity, and culture made perfect sense, for those earlier miss-conceptions that were outdated by those critiques no longer was being considered, for anthropologists now had information that obtained actual and detailed facts.
Rebecca Rogers* and June Christia(2007) worked on a (Christia, 2007) critical discourse analysis of the construction of race in children’s literature. Aim of their study was to see the construction of Whiteness in children’s literature that intentionally brought Whiteness to the surface. They analyzed the literary strategies and linguistic techniques authors used to present Whiteness and, subsequently, Blackness? They selected children’s books from a range of genres that covered multiple points in time(contemporary America and historical America), that presented young children as racialized protagonists, and were written for children in third and fourth grades. They used a combination of critical analyses including an intertextual and hermeneutical analysis as a tool to analyze the children literature.
There were distinct formations of anti-black sentiments and varying degrees of interpellation, making racialization a contextual process which resulted in blacks forming their own subjectivities to fit their geographical and political contexts. The Austin School approach, however, seeks to represent the Black/African Diaspora as a transnational project that highlights historical efforts towards the collectivization of identities through political and cultural practices. The essential use of African as the root of Black Diaspora is also a collectivizing measure, not simply because of an assumption that racial oppression stemmed solely in Africa, but to place Africa as the center of racialization, as notions of Blackness as an identity were produced mostly in Africans and African descendants across the globe. This makes the Austin approach a structure of self-making and realizing Black
ABSTRACT The present paper explores and examines the notion of injustice or discrimination and its treatment by the perception of social justice and humanism by adopting a cross cultural perspective with reference to analysis of racial discrimination in Joseph Conrad’s novella, Heart of Darkness and Mulk Raj Anand’s portrayal of caste discrimination in his novel, Untouchable. Prejudice or discrimination on the base of caste or colour has been a universal practice by human race. The discrimination on each basis generates similar repercussions. It entwines the tale of wretchedness, sufferings, pain and agony in the life of an individual. It can be anecdotal that racism and casteism are sheer naught as they are simply social hypothesis.
Morris (1992) being harmonized by the notion of socialization, has simultaneously disputed the correlation between male inability to excel academically and the gender of tutors. Nevertheless, Bailey and Bernard (2003) and Barry Chevannes (1996) have made appreciative intellectual contributions regarding male ‘demotivation’ to aspire and the alteration in the socio-cultural climate respectively. By contrast, Professor Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh has advocated awareness to the psychological affiliation with this academic activity. The duos of Caribbean sociologists have concluded that the initial origins of male underachievement emerged from the issue of the decline in male participation and accomplishment, being the aftermath of the system’s “feminization”.

It will employ a reading methodology, which is called socio-narrative reading. This model of reading early Christian documents contributes to attempts to understand how early Christian narratives, which includes Gospels, function as identity-forming stories. To accomplish this, the proposed research brings together Social Identity Theory and Narrative Theory. Hanri Tajfel defines social identity as the “aspects of an individual’s self-image that derive from the social categories to which he perceives himself as belonging.” In a later work, Tajfel adds to this definition, noting that social identity “derives from his knowledge of his membership of a group together with the vale and emotional significance attached to the membership.” The theory, then, concerns itself with the way group members understand themselves as part of the group and differentiate their group from other groups in order to achieve a positive social identity. Tajfel argues that simply recognizing that one belongs to a specific group is “sufficient to trigger intergroup discrimination favoring the in-group.” Thus people categorize themselves into groups that attempt to establish a positive sense of value by distinguishing their group (and self) values by making clear distinctions
