If leaders exhibit know how to respect, the followers tend to imitate them. When Janice decides to attend the process improvement meeting with Mr. Haskins, instead of checking on her patient Mrs. Wemberly, then Janice is not putting her patient’s needs . She has to realize that her primary responsibility as a nurse is to care for her patient’s needs. Mr. Haskins may be pleased with her because she made it on time to the meeting but it does not justify her action that she neglects her patient. In the meeting, Mr. Haskins shows unfairness after he considers the physician’s request for private rooms but disregards Jenny’s appeal to reconsider the environmental issue despite its importance.
Essentially, her experience within this new change in her life caused her to slowly shift away from her culture. In comparison, Ellie also experiences this type of discrimination due to the fact that there was a ban on Chinese immigration. This gave her a feeling of being circumscribed and confused in that moment because she is a woman who is confident and strict about her ways, but still received unnecessary hate. For example, this is shown in the text when it says “ She still doesn't understand people here...New Chinese Exclusion Act...Government is saying no more chinese immigrants...That night Mui Lan had turned away to conceal her bitterness” ( Lee 30-31). Upon receiving this information, she is left dumbfounded and speechless because she had not expected to receive this level of discrimination when arriving in this foreign land.
Anderson’s Feed also acts in a way society views as deviant. She is tired of the immense influence that the feed has on people. This mentality leads her to rebel. “What I’m doing...is trying to create a customer profile that’s so screwed, no one can market to it.” (Anderson 98) Her goal was to stop, or at least lessen, the hold technology has on her life. The rebellion does not become a problem until she needs the corporations help to pay for her feed.
In addition, visiting China helps her better understand and appreciate being Chinese. However, this visit also shows the reader how June May have been influenced by American culture and beliefs. For example, June May could not believe that China of all places has a magnificent hotel with all the necessities of modern day items. She keeps on saying, “This is communist China?” (Tan 269). In addition to her misplaced ethnocentrism, while she happened to understand the Chinese language she could not speak it very well due to American influence.
In her essay “Mother Tongue,” Amy Tan reveals how Americans mistreated her Chinese mother because her English wasn’t impeccable. Tan even discusses how she was embarrassed by her mother’s English, writing that she “believed that her [mother’s] English reflected the quality of what she had to say” (Tan 702). Essentially, the difference between how Tan spoke and how her mother spoke—in Tan’s point of view—suggested that Tan’s mother was unintelligent because she couldn’t speak English as well as Tan. Many people make the inappropriate assumption that a person’s intelligence can be measured by how well he speaks a language; when people notice a mistake when someone else is speaking, they are more likely to view that person as less intelligent, which often gives way to mistreatment of these people who are perceived as unintelligent. In the case of Tan’s mother, “people in department stores, at banks, and at restaurants did not take her seriously” (Tan 702).
Although the picture brides desired to be like their American counterparts, they were still ashamed to work for them as it was looked down upon in their culture. They felt as though couldn’t “mention them [their American bosses] in our letters to our mothers. [They] did not mention them in our letters to our sisters or friends. Because in Japan the lowliest job a woman could have was that of a maid” (Otsuka, 2011, p. 45). Working for these American women pushed the picture brides towards a desire to assimilate and whiten themselves.
So she didn't really care about those people, but as Esperanza had to live the lifestyle of fear for deportation, she felt bad for the people who were deported. To sum it all up, Esperanza went from riches to rags, bratty to well behaved, and from not working at all to working very hard thanks to her experiences throughout the book. Looks like being poor was more beneficial than being rich. I think kids nowadays could learn a thing or two from Esperanza about working hard, not having an attitude, and respecting/ helping people not as wealthy as
For example, my grandparents who are mindfulness will not criticize or scold us when we are in black during Chinese New Year. They are open minded and red colour is not a compulsory colour even when it comes to Chinese New Year. When this happened, they will be able to develop cultural
He supports the idea that human rights are a result of society. This is because he viewed human rights claims and institutions as being “unique”. He argues that human rights in an institution specific to particular culture and historic context and is in fact a human construction. Waters does not believe that all human rights do not involve all made against the state. Human rights can only include claims that are recognised as fundamental to a political community’s member’s humanity in Waters’ opinion.
However, after I have took the course I notice that it is a big problem which can affect my mother psychologically health and her job satisfy. Therefore, I choose her as my interviewee so that I can know about her problem more and also to use what I have learned to help her. From the interview, my mother told me that there is one period of time when she is not actually happy with her work life because she cannot get along with her teammates and her leader; however, she has no problem with her assigned work. Her problem prove the
This was portrayed in the documentary by one of the police officers who said you might not achieve a good or desired result sometimes but a good result might just be that you have successfully disrupted the situation. Like in most of the cases the girls went back home. Their parents were not persecuted but they became aware that they are being watched by the authorities. Social worker is a relationship-based profession nevertheless it is their moral duty to challenge injustice in the society. I learnt in today’s session that cultural diversity can create ethical dilemmas for social works and in cases there would be no direct answers.
In Sandel’s “The Public Philosophy of Contemporary Liberalism,” he highlights that the different forms of liberalism put forth a set a values (e.g. the freely-choosing self, toleration, and rights). Minimalist Liberalism argues that different opinions need a neutral framework for social peace. Consequently, one must bracket their controversial attitudes even though this does not seem to solve the problem. Toleration allows for diversity to flourish and equality to thrive, so long as the government be restricted in using coercion to cause citizens to act “morally,” according to their standards.
