School Funding- “CRT argues that inequality in school funding is a function of institutional and structural racism” (Ladson-Billings, 2004, p.20). The lack of funds becomes a systemic way to deprive students from gaining opportunities such as jobs. Desegregation- As professor Grant mentioned in class, desegregation still exists in the world specially in education because minority students are still poorly served in the education
Xenophobia refers to the inexplicable anger and hatred for strangers or foreigners. Xenophobia is one of the issues that persist in the South African state. One of the most regularly mentioned reasons for the occurrences of xenophobia in South Africa is Apartheid. The intolerant attitudes learned during Apartheid still dwell among some of the citizens. Another explanation of the violence is blamed on the ANC government’s service delivery bad record, what Apartheid didn’t damage, the ANC did.
Ngugi works are characterized by criticism against European unacceptable law and injustice. Petals of Blood revolve around ruthless capitalist and deals with issues like land, history, education and exploitation.

Racist Society Racism is a word that is commonly used nowadays. As defined by the Merriam- Webster Dictionary, racism is defined by poor treatment of or violence against people because of their race (line 1). It was further defined as “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities”. According to Robinson and Palmer (n. d), racism is committed when a person or a group of people is physically, emotionally or mentally abused because of their race, beliefs, nationality, skin color, and ethnic origin. The American Heritage College Dictionary defined Racism as the belief that race determines the human character and the human ability.
For example, it is crucial to establish race as a political category because it is essential to fighting racism (5). Racism is connected to colonialism and slavery by the creation of racial hierarchies. Whites, from Europe felt threatened by blacks, and therefore they created a racial ranking which allowed them to be superior which led to the construction of slavery during the colonial period. The ideology that whites were superior became a reason to why racism was explicitly introduced during the colonial period in which slavery took
As a black adolescent this seems to be very common because they feel as if they are standing out in this kind of environment and need to change to fit in with the other adolescents of a different race. In the novel Starr refers to her code switching as “proper English”. Starr talks about how “Williamson Starr doesn’t use slang” and how it makes her stand out as an individual in the school. The people we surround ourselves with and the environment we include ourselves in has an enormous impact on emotions and attitudes that go along with who we are, so trying to change yourself could affect your friendships and relationships. Being a teenager is hard enough to go through but adding in the code-switching aspect and teaching black adolescents that it is loud, annoying, and too different to talk their normal English while in a white community, makes everything so much harder for them.
Therefore in this essay there will be a discussion about racism specifically focusing in racism at schools and also a discussion about the perspectives of two philosophical perspectives, existentialism and African philosophy concerning racism (school racism). Existentialism emphasises individual existence, freedom and choices and African philosophy is a philosophy produced by African people, philosophy that presents African worldviews or philosophy that uses distinct African philosophical methods. Situation Since racism in schools is so subtle, it is perpetuated almost unknowingly. This subtlety means many kids believe that because apartheid is over and school are generally diverse, therefore racism no longer exists-that somehow we are living in a post-racial society (Zulu, 2017). However that is not true, there are some schools there that still promote/practise racism.
Education is the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially school or university. Fee is a payment made in exchange of service or advice. In this point we going to look at fees made in exchange for education, fees play a very big role in higher education since lectures are needed in order to prove education to the one who need it. So in this research we going to talk about why is it important to pay fees even though we can’t afford them in South Africa. Apartheid played a big role in a poverty of a black’s child since everything was taken away from black people during apartheid so black people are still recovery from that.
2.0 Introduction Africa has become the theatre of widespread violent attacks, crime, xenophobia, genocide and terrorism (Valji, 2003). Xenophobia as our main focus is a deep-rooted hatred towards foreign nationals, processed through such tragic incidents of attacking and killing foreigners. This act of xenophobia has emerged in Africa since the end of colonialism. This study seeks to utilise the existing literature on xenophobia to explain and discuss its various causes and impacts with a view to providing deeper understanding of its insecurity regime. The study will highlight the causes and impact xenophobia has on nations, specifically on South Africa’s international relations abroad.
Introduction The education system and its inherent processes have reproduced societal inequality?? This statement refers to the failures of the education system and how it can define societal inequality today in the Caribbean. This term can be broken down in many ways where usually students and their families are highly affected, meaning they can be allotted in society where they will be judged according to the measure made by society. A brief definition of Social inequality is that it refers to the ways in which socially-defined categories of persons according to their characteristics such as gender, age, ‘class’ and ethnicity are differentially positioned with regard to access to a variety of social ‘goods’, such as the labor market and other
