Chinese immigrants experience much more hardship compared with what they contribute to the society. It seems that every immigrant needs to suffer a lot of bias and hardship in America because of cultural difference. Culture shock leads to many misunderstandings and causes conflicts. That is easy to understand. However, Chinese immigrants are treated unfairly because more complex reasons.
Not to mention the harsh heat and pesticides that drip off the plants causing cancer, birth defects and other illnesses. Now while both jobs share many similar characteristics, they are also different from each other as well. Back in the 1930s people were discriminated by class, the rich dominated the poorer workers as the rich just push the poor aside and treat them like garbage. The immigrants for modern farms were discriminated by race, racism still exist as many people are skeptical of the blacks. People will often complain about the rate of immigrants coming into the United States, claiming about the number of jobs declining and and crime rising.
Nancy A. Heitzeg, a Sociology Professor at St. Catherine University published an article titled Education or Incarceration: Zero Tolerance Policies And The School to Prison Pipeline. In this scholar article Heitzeg, addresses the zero tolerance policy and the negative effects of this policy. She looks at the growing number of suspensions, expulsions, and dropout rates. Most importantly how this policy is racially disproportionate; for more Black and Latino students are likely to face harsher consequences for this zero tolerance policy. She argues for reform and alternatives that will lead our youth away from the criminal justice system and back toward the education
Often you can hear racial comments even while walking down a school hallway. Though the comments from the film and book are from 1947-1997 racism still exists. Many horrible things have happened in society but we need to learn to grow and accept the past as the

Culture is about learning how a certain group of people are by sharing ideas, beliefs, and values. They characterize themselves as unique and special because of their unique culture. Moreover, we view the world through a racial lens that portrays the world as colors such as black, brown, white, yellow and more. The way people view groups of different people based on the color of their skin, ancestral origin, or their cultural upbringing have generated stratification between certain groups of people. Our world now has so much hate and has even experienced growing numbers of terrorism because they want to make right what they construe is socially or politically wrong.
In Cry the Beloved Country Racism is used in many different ways but one big way is the political power. Blacks have no true leader and they are constantly being held down by the white men. The white men came in and took over but did not do it in a nice way. “It
After reading Dudley Delvin’s essay, “Plagiarism in America,” I have come to realize the great extent of plagiarism in American institutions. More often than one might assume, plagiarism occurs within students’ assignments. Delvin highlights the issue and presents a logical solution; however, to fully solve the epidemic, some alterations need to be made to his plan.

In order for the high levels of cheating to decrease, students must have appropriate punishments that are enforced after each incident, surveillance of assignments, and education about plagiarism and its consequences.
I believe "Weedflower" is a great story for children to analyze bullying and racism from another point of view. Today, students may perceive bullying and racism started not too long ago, or that it only happens to the "nerdy" kids at school. Bullying and racism is an ancient dilemma that has affected many people of different ages and cultures.

It focuses on a teenager that suffered and struggled at the hands of many racist people.
During the Gold Rush in the late 1840s, a vast amount of Chinese immigrants, about 335,000 people, proceeded to the West Coast of the United States. These immigrants faced a great deal of segregation and discrimination from the Americans. In many ways, the Chinese were in difficult situations when it came to retaining lives that they were accustomed to before attempting to live a better life in America. Despite the challenges that were faced by the Chinese immigrants, many managed to maintain a culture similar to their own although it was more of a Chinese culture that was influenced by American customs. In areas, such as the Chinatowns, many Chinese customs still live by their inhabitants.
