Carolin Hagelskamp, author of “Workplace Discrimination Predicting Racial/Ethnic Socialization Across African American, Latino, and Chinese Families” declares that, “In the 2007 National Survey of Latinos, 51% perceived workplace discrimination to be major problem and 16% reported they had been denied a job or a promotion because of their race (Carolin Hagelskamp).” Racial profiling and discrimination within a work environment is expressed through degrading comments, passive-aggressive slurs, and social interactions. “Exposure to racial/ethnic discrimination at work is associated with a host of negative outcomes for workers and their families, including decreased job satisfaction, and mental and physical health problems (Carolin Hagelskamp).” Limited knowledge has been explored about the repercussions of exposure to racial profiling may have on parents towards teaching their children. However, these actions arise questions as to how racial profiling and discrimination pertaining to work may shape parent’s beliefs about what their children must understand about race and ethnicity, and their attendant racial/ethnic socialization practices, remains underexplored (Carolin Hagelskamp). The effect racial profiling has caused is, racial

The environment people live in can impact their health. Environmental racism is something that some people have died from. In the U.S most minority women harm their babies because of those chemicals from the waste sites around their neighborhoods. Environmental racism can lead to people having asthma attacks because of air pollution from factories, can harm food & water minority people eat & drink, and also can make governors and presidents fight for minority people in minority neighborhoods. Environmental racism can lead to major asthma attacks.
He faced firsthand oppression experiences by the children of former slaves in the White South. Consequently, he witnessed politicians and businessmen destroy the gains of reconstruction, and African Americans were struggling against social, political and economic discrimination. Du Bois formed his stand on race relations in America and he began to speak out against the carnages of racism. During his period of studies, he studied at different Universities, observing and comparing racism issues in Africa, Asia and
For the reasons, the fundamental impact of ecology perspective is to the recognize the effect oppression has on an individual or group of people ((Berg-Weger, 2016). For instance, the Native people have been oppressed for centuries in the American society. Likewise, they have been victims of exploitation, segregation, open hostility and violence toward them. The history should become consider for the fact that people who experience institutional oppression are more likely to sense powerlessness and mistrust, particularly when they are dealing with the oppressing group/person. The group history and the life experiences, including discrimination and is significant, especially when conducting an assessment or devolving an intervention plan.
The multiple levels of injustice and racism in this book are astonishing and heartbreaking. Everywhere you look in this book there is a problem, not just with the Lacks family but with our cultural as whole. The environmental racism in Turner’s station and displacing 1,300 people for a power plant to the treatment of black patients and Henrietta for being a black woman. It saddens me for two reasons, one being that I still have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that this wasn’t very long ago in the scale of time. Two, we are still dealing with so many of these issues right now.
The documentary ‘Trashed, with Jeremy Irons’ focuses on how the waste management industry is having deleterious consequences on human and animal life on this planet. By using case studies from around the world, Jeremy Irons takes the viewer on a narrated journey from Lebanon, to the UK, to Vietnam, and to the North Pacific, all with the objective of demonstrating how the ways in which humans get rid of waste: through landfills, incinerators, and oceanic dumping, are harming human health, destroying people’s livelihoods, and adversely affecting animals’ welfare. Irons concludes this dismal narration of the anthropogenic harms of the waste industry with an uplifting look at the positive changes that grassroots organizations are effectuating in the disposal of waste. Ultimately, this film is incredibly successful in getting its point across in its 93 minutes running time; that humans must change the way in which we deal with waste. This success can be attributed to how skillfully Jeremy Irons exploits
“A racist system inevitably destroys and damages human beings; it brutalizes and dehumanizes them, blacks and whites alike” (Kenneth Clark). Kenneth Clark was a very important person in helping the Brown V. Board Of Education case win. Winning that case was important because a state law came into place that said separate public schools for black and white students were unconstitutional. A Raisin in the Sun shows how Clark was right; a racist system affected the way the Youngers’ lived. The Youngers’ apartment in the Southside of Chicago: in the 1950s; significantly affected the Youngers’ lives.
Iago displays racist behavior and shows symptoms of being a pathological liar. The way Iago behaves is excused based on the environmental impact. Iago was raised in a community where there weren’t an abundant about of African Americans (source E). A study was conducted and proved as early as nine months old we start to become racist (source B). In Iago’s mind it is the norm to discriminate others
For example, “A black man employed by a Minnesota trucking company had racial slurs directed at him and was the target of graffiti written by fellow workers.” (Smeltzer, Terry L. LeapLarry R) Its acts such as these that make the case for restricting hate speech in America. Hate speech has been linked to causing health problems, advocates for hate crimes, and causes emotional instability in the person receiving the insult. Hate crimes and hate speech have gone on throughout history with Hitler and the Jews, America and African slaves, and more recently white Africans and black Africans. We need to restrict hate speech even if it means having to change the first amendment of the
Institutional racism is inevitable in the United States. Institutional racism is constantly occurring, whether it be in the work force, schools, or the criminal justice system. The color of one’s skin is a determining factor for his success in a company, and whether or not he ends up in the court systems, and for how long. Although laws such as the Thirteenth Amendment, Fourteenth Amendment, and Fifteenth Amendment have been put in place to avoid racism in America and give black people equal rights, institutional racism is still holding African Americans back. In the work place, black people fall victim to the glass ceiling.
The NAACP 's press release talks about the research report Coal Blooded, and how coal plants are being placed nearby low income and colored communities.

Coal Blooded even talks about a plan to help change from high polluted energy sources for more eco-friendly sources. The closing of two power plants in Chicago helps support this plan.
The video, 60 Minutes – Electronic Wasteland, produced by Solly Granatstein, show us the cruel reality of the environmental consequences of human activities and life style and how the emissions from these recycling practices are damaging human health and the environment. Electronic waste (E-waste) contains toxic components like Lead, Mercury, Chromium, Cadmium, Polyvinyl Chloride, that affects the overall wellness of the human body and the ecosystem that is exposed. Some of the health effects of these toxins on the human body include brain damage, kidney disease, mutations, different types of cancers, birth defects, reproductive system damage, and much more. This video, it is very impressive and totally change my way of thinking and acting,
Richard West was the man chosen to advise and determine the legality of new legislatures, yet in this case, his status and position was undermined in favor of the plantation bourgeoisie. Aside from humanity, the decision to alienate African Americans through legislation disregarded lawfulness in order to specifically benefit the plantation elite. This parallels decisions made by governments and corporations which exploit and endanger the environment. Similar to Richard West, environmental scientists are appointed to investigate our relationship to the earth, and advise accordingly. Scientists and environmentalists the world over have been warning us for decades about the consequences of our actions.
