Seeking out comfort in the form of similarity, these ethnicities tend to live together in the Chinatowns, Native American reservations, and African-American communities of the U.S. However, these places where ethnicities reside tend to have fewer job opportunities. This is evidenced by the states with the highest unemployment rates, also having the highest percentages of some ethnicity. One such example is the District of Columbia, whose percentage of African-Americans is the highest in the country at around 50%, and yet also has the third highest unemployment rate at almost 6%. This trend extends to other ethnicities as well, with Alaska, the state with the highest unemployment rate, being 14% Native American, also highest in the country.
Feagin argues while the racialization process is important, its founders fail to address the material and political-economic interests of those in power. Feagin believes systemic racism to be a “big picture” approach, and an understanding that the entirety of society’s foundation is based on anti-Black racism and oppression. The main tenet of systemic racism is that “all racial-ethnic relationships and events, past and present” must be placed in the context of targeting African Americans to be understood (Feagin 2006). Furthermore, Feagin argues that racial formation does not adequately address contemporary racism, and concepts such as the intergenerational transmission of material and cultural wealth. Systemic racism is a theory that understands the United States as a web of interconnected and interdependent organizations and institutions that work as a system for the purpose of racial

Regarding the stock of tertiary-educated emigrants, several interesting features emerge. First of all it was noticed that the number of tertiary-educated workers in the total stock of migrants exceed the share of tertiary-educated workers in the domestic labor force in every developing region of the world. In sub-Saharan Africa, the tertiary educated account for less than 3 percent of the labor force but more than 35 percent of all migrants (Ratha, Mohapatra, Ozden, Plaza and Shimeles, 2011). Secondly, highly educated individuals are more likely to emigrate than less educated ones. For instance in 2005/2006, the emigration rates of tertiary-educated people (13.3%) exceed by far the total emigration rates (1%) in The Gambia (OECD, 2012).
Racial minority groups (blacks and Hispanics) as well as the majority group (whites) could either form a coalition or compete depending on the socioeconomic or political objectives that they have, and the location where they reside. A coalition would occur when both groups have similar goals, expectations, and sense of teamwork. A competition would occur when two or more groups are trying to achieve the same goal, but only one can attain success. According to McClain and Karnig, “Socioeconomic indicators included median education, median, income, percent nonpoverty population, and percent employed” (536). It looks like in many circumstances, blacks and whites were afraid of the immigration of Latinos, especially if they were planning to reside in the same location.
In approximately 27 of the sample firms, the management has majority control of the board of directors. Comparing the voting to cash flow residual common stock or dividends ratio we observe that there are more voting shares held by managers than the cash residual shares or rights as their median voting rights ownership is around twice as large as the median common stock cash flow interest. Dual class structures are preferred in firms due to some constraints that exist at personal level, such as the limitation to wealth (Personal wealth is less). New York stock exchange has recently announced plans to adopt dual class structures by many currently-listed companies. A two decade analysis was conducted in the years 1960, 1970 and 1980 which showed that the firms with a dual class structure have not been declining.
Some believe that multicultural education is only directed toward minorities, discriminating against white, heterosexual males, while others believe that multiculturalism is against Western tradition. In this paper, we will dissect a portion of the American philosopher John R. Searle’s essay “Is There a Crisis in American Higher Education?”, briefly touching on the group he names the “traditionalists” who are against multiculturalism in education, and the other group he names the “challengers” who are for multiculturalism in education, along with some of his own assumptions and thoughts on the topic.
