In the essay, “A Genealogy of Modern Racism”, the author Dr. Cornel West discusses racism in depth, while conveying why whites feel this sense of superiority. We learn through his discussion that whites have been forced to treat black harshly due to the knowledge that was given to them about the aesthetics of beauty and civility. This knowledge that was bestowed on the whites in the modern West, taught them that they were superior to all races tat did not emulate the norms of whites. According to Dr. West the very idea that blacks were even human beings is a concept that was a “relatively new discovery of the modern West”, and that equality of beauty, culture, and intellect in blacks remains problematic and controversial in intellectual circles
Racism has deep roots in American history. Slavery, segregation, and unnecessary police charges are just a few examples of racism. But, why does racism exist? Many people believe that their race and ethnicity is superior than others, and that those who are “different” are inferior. Those who are considered, “inferior,” have to be treated differently, which results in unfairness and discrimination.
Like many other problems, Racism has existed throughout the history of mankind. The definition of Racism is being discriminant and disrespectful towards a racial group with the belief that your own race is superior. Racism has changed the world and how people view each other. This belief that ones race is superior has lead to create violence, stereotypes, health problems and hatred in the world. White Americans’ support for segregation sprang from a widespread belief in black inferiority and that blacks’ disadvantaged status tended to reinforce this sentiment (Harris and Leiberman).
For anything to succeed, you need an equality viewpoint”(Richard). When people try and take advantage of being colored and try to make it to where they are making themselves look like they are the “top” people because they get to have opportunities that non-colored people do not have, is not being parallel and is very unfair. When society starts seeing others do something out of the ordinary or unusual, they are going to take action and most of the time it is not going to be good. Furthermore, it is important to look at this in an equal manner because
This means that we will seek their happiness through this success and are constantly trying to be as successful as possible in order to make you happier. But since it is impossible to be truly happy on the basis of external factors, we the true happiness in fact almost never even feel it. Will experience some moments of apparent happiness when, for example, get a lot of money or achieve success at work or when this would have been, they would still unhappy because we connect our happiness with success. And mostly because the society in which we live based on such
It hurts to know that some people see a person differently, not good enough to be classified as human, so they treat them badly to let them know that they are not good enough. Have you ever wondered what racism does to a person? How does it make them feel? What goes throw their mind when they are told all those horrible stuff to make them feel bad about themselves? Most importantly, how are they still standing strong despite all the obstacles that they face in their life because of their race?
2.1 Principle of equality Equality is a claim that we should treat and respect all people equally, regardless race, sex, religion, culture … The interest and well-being of people is equally important. Racism is immoral as it treats people unequally based on the race and violates the principle of equality. White people think black people are less important and give less respect to them. The equality of opportunity requires us to give equal opportunity to all people when having relevant qualifications and abilities that skin color or race is not a relevant consideration.
The reason why this is sinful is because all humans are descendants of Adam and Eve, which proves all humans equal. But, from the start, humans have a natural tendency to make themselves center of everything. Cases of racism happen all over the place, from when we are kids, to refugees scattered all over Europe, and also horrible events in history. When a person hears the word racism a lot of times they may think of a white person picking on a black person. In my childhood I experienced racism and I am not black.
Islamic people are judged because people think they are terrorist. Even some whites are judged by others because of things that other white people have done. There is discrimination everywhere in the world. One of the biggest and my personal favorite event of discrimination was Rosa Parks.
It may seem harsh to assume that but it has been deeply ingrained into our society that we don’t even see it anymore. In Wildman & Davis’ article about privilege, they speak about what is privilege and who has privilege. They also speak about the way privilege is maintained. In Nada El Sawy’s article, she talks about due to her race/ religion she is categorized in a certain group.
She does a good job by saying that some people are born with privilege and some are given the privilege but overall that we don 't deserve that privilege because it ends up putting others at a disadvantage. McKintosh makes it very clear to us that white privilege is more of a dominance to another race than a privilege. She ends up saying that white privilege is very much misleading because it puts people of color at a disadvantage. The whole purpose of the article that McKintosh wrote was to open the minds of the white society and make them realize that they were at a advantage over colored people and that there are many examples of the dominance of white people over colored. Even though it is said that we are a free country, things have still not gotten to the point where everyone is free and equal.
The N-word has become a broadly used word in today 's society. However, it is not acceptable to use in your everyday language. The N-word has a history behind it. The use of the N-Word was born out of a hatred of African-Americans based on the racial advantage in the early times of the United States.
The N word started from the early as the 17 century a lot of people had found it really offensive because for what the meaning behind it also the way people say it to the black people. There are two sides, one side is all about how they are against the N word and the other side is all about how they are not against toward the N word .The N word is offensive because it is meant to discriminate black people. Many people have been interviewed for what their beliefs are toward the N word. Also, some of the people also have been interviewed for the N of how it isn 't offensive to others.
Slavery and 9/11 is the cause for the hate towards these two communities. Society being predominantly white for centuries instilled this white supremacy ideology. When society puts the white community on a pedestal, and they degrade and discriminate towards the Muslim and black community. This shouldn 't be swept under the rug. This backwards thinking shouldn’t persist to this day.
