The document I chose to write about is called, Mexico: Los Zetas Drug Cartel Linked San Fernando Police to Migrant Massacres edited by Michael Evans. This document links the San Fernando Police case to the Ayotzinapa case. The similarity between these two cases is that the police is in collaboration with the drug cartels in taking parts of these kidnaps and killings. The facts of the San Fernando Police case are that 72 migrants were removed from an intercity bus in San Fernando and then were executed. The facts of the Ayotzinapa case are that 43 students disappeared and six were killed from Ayotzinapa Normal School.
Indeed, you mentioned an important aspect of disparities and it is one related to the disparities affecting racial groups. The United States is a multicultural country so for a healthcare professional to treat a disease or to approach a group is necessary to consider their cultural background, traditions, and beliefs. Despite all the United States effort to eradicate the racial differences in the Country, race continues as one of the most significant factors to take into consideration when we are evaluating health care services or high quality of care. Health disparities among Hispanics most the time is caused by the type of food they consume, and the lack of access to healthcare services. In addition, some Hispanic are not the United States
American 's gained their independence because of a decision by its ' colonial citizens to pursue freedom through the legitimate use of armed force. Disparate American colonies fought on a unified front for a set of defining values and principles centered on their customs, traditions, and desired institutions. Americans ultimately prevailed because of a deep shared sense of patriotism and nationalism. American 's declared their independence from Britain 's control based on the defining principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. These values and principles have endured and transcended since 1776 through multiple wars which have challenged American values, principles, and institutions.
And different societies have different ethics. Something can be totally ethical in a particular society but it might be unethical in another society. “Adam argued that recent social changes had led to profound changes in the nature of our relation sites.

Growing up as an Immigrant in America, you grow to learn social conformity is prevalent and plays a key role in the systematic oppression of free thinkers. Social conformity does not only dictate the way you view issues but also makes you shy away from letting your own beliefs be heard. There are many ways people conform, television and social norms being the predominant forces. By having observed these behaviors at an early age, I’ve grown to develop my own moral judgment and have met like-minded individuals who share the same outlook on the ills of society. Living in a third world country, America and other European countries are practically seen as heaven on earth or the promised land.
How America is different than other countries is that America is treated differently than any other countries the way they are treated different is that they have freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Also in this country we pay high taxes. America has more diversity than other countries. In America we don’t just use English we use a variety of other languages. America is also wealthy.
Ethics help us develop moral reasoning, define criminal activity and what society dispense as acceptable punishment. Law enforcement agents need to operate ethically, and the society will more likely be open and ethical in interaction with them. Attorneys need to uphold ethical behavior, and not aiming to win all cases at all costs. Self-participation has to include people’s willingness to share information, participating in the jury and self-reporting criminal activities. Ethics is applied in decision making in criminal justice for effective and just decisions.
In Defense of Relativism Intro: The philosophical view of relativism states that the moral code of a culture is the product of the society’s upbringing and that there is no moral code that is superior to another moral code because of the drastically different culture each society possesses. Therefore, relativists believe it is intolerant of us to judge other cultural practices as unethical or wrong. Opponents of relativism argue that if relativism were to be accepted, our belief of moral progress would be called into question, as we can no longer compare one society to another. I support relativism and argue against the opposition’s argument by stating that moral progress indeed did occur, however, it occurred relative to the current moral code.
The American Dream is the idea that individuals that desire to accomplish the freedom, equality and a land of opportunity, be available to every American. Making change progress is what it is all about. This change alludes to the financial position and economic, social position in general public. The quantity of diligent work which can likewise consider the correct measure of a reward. The reward could be from high economy to more noteworthy money related opportunity.
Cultural relativism has a variety of definitions, but the main idea is that a universal code of ethics does not exist--it varies culture to culture. Rachel’s examines cultural relativism in “The Challenge of Cultural Relativism” and argues that there are commonalities of ethics throughout every culture. Rachels sections off his argument to better explain what they believe. In this piece, they argue that cultural relativism is not a proper theory. They argue that it has many major flaws, but they acknowledge that parts of theory have some truth to it.
Cultural relativism is the understanding of other cultures in their own terms. To achieve the understanding of the rituals used in the cultures of another, one must be able to look at them from an emic (insider) perspective. One must also be able to look at his own culture from an etic (outsider) perspective. The ability to look at one’s culture from the etic point of view will make it easier to explain the rituals to someone from a different culture, for example, rites of passage. Rites of passage are used to mark a life stage and are celebrated by tradition or religion, meant to separate a specific group.
Every society has its own unique cultures in which people will have different ideas of moral codes. The diversity of these cultures cannot be said to be correct or incorrect. Every society has independent standards of ethic within their society and these standards are culture-bound. Cultural Relativism has a perception in which rightness or wrongness of an action depends entirely within the bounds of the culture. This theory opposes the belief in the objectivity of moral truth.
Ethnocentrism and its prevalence in U.S culture Ethnocentrism is judging another culture solely by the values and standards of one’s own culture. Individuals who are ethnocentric judge other groups in relation to their own ethnic group or culture. I think The United States likes to refer to themselves as the “big mixing pot” of cultures. I would agree, we do have a wide range of different cultures, but that does not mean that we do not “evaluate and judge other cultures based on how they compare to our own cultural norms.” I think us as Americans feel this way, because we are too scared to change what we have learned and known since birth.
Considering ethical concerns within a culture is not of the same caliber as considering ethical concerns among cultures globally. Cultures are each diverse with rich history and customs of their own. This paper discusses cultural relativism by responding to four questions based on the topic. The ethical issues surrounding the process of paying traffic tickets in Mexico City and in the US are a focal point. What is cultural relativism, and how does the vision of ethics associated with it diverge from the traditional ethical theories?
