A discourse community is a group of people that share a set of values and goals. Members of a discourse community have their own way of communicating within the group and with the public. Although the communities may differ in subject matter and appearance, they do share varying levels of similarities. The three-discourse communities that we will be focusing on are: art, research biology and finance: specifically, the financial service sector. Furthermore, we will be comparing the three-discourse communities on: similarities among all the groups, similarities between each group and the differences among all three.
Social justice is often strived for by society. It is a necessary force in allowing humankind to coexist. However, the individual also has to play a role in maintaining social justice. The role of the individual is stated in the texts Fahrenheit 451 and “The Pedestrian” by Ray Bradbury and “Letter From Birmingham Jail” by Martin Luther King Jr. by illustrating the consequences of not participating in the monitoring of justice. The stories show how much each individual fights for equality and justice, no matter the situation.
A nation state is a group of people who share common bonds and live within a geographical territory under a system of government (S4 Integrated Humanities, 2016). The government of a nation state should provide for its people in the best possible way. Diversity refers to recognizing that each individual is unique, with their own differences, be it their race, ethnicity, religious beliefs or ideologies. When there is diversity in a nation state, there is bound to be disagreements, since different groups of people will have different opinions with others, which may escalate into conflict. A multiculturalist perspective should be attained by a nation in order to deal with cultural and ethnic diversity.
Lastly, not only is offering knowledge important, but to give this to the struggle for public righteousness. Critical race theory is a basis for action and is intended to transform education to fit the needs of all students. This transformation is for both society and social group’s struggles which is good because it produces integrity. Limitations the critical race theory may have is that racialization can be falsely generalized and stereotyped for any biological factor that people understand as race to describe the differences. Another is there are CRT scholars who have different claims who are either realists or idealists.
Culture is seen to be a heritage that signifies who people are and these include language, religion, beliefs, norms, behaviors, and attitudes including social structures that guide everyday interactions. When moral standard and culture are in conflict, an amicable solution must be reached upon with tact and commitment. The party calling the other to accountability should be seen to be interested in resolving the conflict. I would think that just as workplace conflict is resolved by placing interests ahead of rights and power, so goes with whaling conflict. By placing emphasis on cultural heritage, people are seeking identity and mutual recognition, however; cultural distinctiveness can increase divisiveness and foster conflict.
In her writings, of Earthseed, Lauren postulates “People tend to give in to fear and depression, to need and greed. When no influence is strong enough to unify people, they divide. They struggle” (91). During times of instability, people only look out for themselves, instead of helping out their community. This stimulates the division of like people and as a result, the community struggles.
It important to inform Kai my role a professional and ethics on confidentiality; as well as, the limitations, especially in a group setting. I will make Kai and the group aware that is important that what occurs in group should stay in group, but also remind the group that I cannot guarantee that the information in group will remain group. Also, I will further address the limitation of confidentiality, such as if someone is at risk of hurting themselves and/or others, then I must make a report.

Hate speech is not always grounded in reality and often driven by ignorance to the facts rather than experience and real prejudice. Some may argue that it is just harmless prejudice and our rights are threatened if we condemn it.SO is it the right to free speech or the right to insult? Racism, bigotry, political views and views about religions in fact, most views are learnt in the family home, then the education system, society, media and TV finish the indoctrination.

The community affects individual clients, therefore, social work practitioners should look into the programs and resources available in the community for the client to utilize. This method of assessing also takes into account the social structures of a community. If there is a lack of necessary resources in the community then it is something that a social work practitioner can organize and advocate for. Looking at a community’s strengths and capacities is an empowering approach that makes it more likely for the members of the community to respond and collaborate. This also helps in ensuring that power struggles or conflicts don’t arise and retract progress.
The United States in particular continues to struggle with discriminatory factors to include: racial prejudice, sexual prejudice, religious prejudice, disability prejudice, mental health prejudice, socioeconomic prejudice, and so on. Something that I feel strongly about is that minority groups face oppressive factors that hold them back from living out their full potential, and citizens not being able to live out their full potential is a social problem that affects us all. While I am interested in many oppressive factors, such as sex trafficking, domestic violence, educational gaps, foster care system, and poverty; I am going to address stereotype threat. Stereotype threat is when a person feels themselves at risk of confirming either a positive or negative stereotype. When somebody is negatively stereotyped this can have many effects such as: reducing students ability to test well, this can affect job security by creating mental barriers, and get in the way of being able to get basic resources because a person might not want to fulfill a specific stereotype.
