Culturally competent service providers are aware of how their own cultural backgrounds, experiences, attitudes, values, and biases influence psychological processes. Although cultural competence is presented as a progressive and positive force for the challenge racism and discrimination There are a few obstacles that make it difficult to implement and in fact, achieved for the social worker and employers. Critique of cultural competence Critiqued that cultural competence for being unreachable. Critiqued that Could be privileging group characteristics over individuality – opens for stereotyping. Critiqued for implying that a client’s culture can be understood by the social worker who reads about cultures and asks questions, but the reality is more complex.
and how those differences can create monsters in society. Unauthorized immigrants often get placed into a “different” or “unwanted” group and that causes them to face unfairness in society. “How Immigrants Become ‘Other’” correlates to Cohen’s thesis because unauthorized immigrants can be made into monsters due to differences in race and legal status. The group of unauthorized immigrants can become alienated in society, and the people themselves are sometimes referred to as “illegal aliens.” Ultimately, “How Immigrants Become ‘Other’” is more credible than Cohen 's “Monster Culture (7 Theses)” because the authors have more authority to write about the subject of their source and this source
Whitman uses two kinds of proofs in order to persuade his audience. Firstly, whitman uses a proof known as Examples: “For example, X and Y demonstrate that Z happens.” Whitman implements this proof by first making the claim, “America led the world in race-based law making…(Whitman para. 3 ).” Whitman then supports this claim by providing an example of immigration legislation passed by congress. Whitman quotes Attorney General Jeff Sessions, “Congress passed immigration legislation designed to guarantee predominance of immigrants from northern Europe, largely shutting the door on Jews, Italians, Asians, and others. As Nazi commentators approvingly put it, this was law intended to keep out ‘undesirables.’ (Whitman para.
In fact, generally even in politic there are two sides, those which are in favor of immigration for several reasons; and the second side who denounce immigrants who try to take advantage of the economic system. Furthermore, politicians have to consider illegal immigration which still stays a problem in many countries such as USA or France. Today, manage immigration in a country is a complicate action to do. For instance, B. Obama’s speech on immigration (on November, 2014), where he tried to legalize people who have a child or parent leaving in the USA, was very contentious because republicans were totally disagree. Nevertheless, they were agreed to admit that their immigration system were outdated.
Japanese Internment in WWII The Internment of Japanese Americans is a big part of American history, it was a terrible thing that the United states government did and caused harm to many innocent people. But, before we can judge if it was a bad thing that the government did or a good thing we must first take a in depth look at this part of history. In order to understand Japanese internment it is necessary to examine Japanese Americans’ lives before,during and after internment: what they dealt with, how it affected them, and how they moved on? Pearl Harbor is not the sole reason why we chose the Japanese Americans over German Americans for internment, they were other factors at play. We chose them because of the prejudice that traditional americans felt towards them and also because of pearl harbor.
The large scale of immigration, both legal and illegal, has brought up issues such as national security and the U.S. economy. The U.S. Senate is struggling to find a viable solution; they can’t seem to come up with a plan on how to deal with immigration that appeases both sides of the political spectrum. Many immigration proposals have already been introduced, and one of them is a bipartisan plan called the McCain-Coons plan. Although this proposal is not perfect, I believe that it is a step towards settling the immigration debate and should be considered by the Senate. First of all, one of the main factors in the immigration debate is the cancellation of DACA, which stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
When looking at the history and the modern war on drugs, it demonstrates a clear example of this kind of regression. During the 1900’s, as a great influx of Black and immigrant workers integrated into the American culture, working for long hours at such little pay, but still whites felt as though these workers were out there to “steal” their jobs. Politicians must come up with a way to get rid of them, without it being obvious they are racially discriminating them. Their only solution was to criminalize them by creating anti-drug laws. They associated
According to Labor Department statistics, “People of color are nearly twice as likely to be out of work as Caucasian Americans, even when they have the same degree” (Rassuli 1). Despite the number of immigrants coming to America in search of freedom and new opportunities, citizens see them as “outsiders” and “unwelcomed” (2). These immigrants come to America for a better life, chasing the “American Dream,” only to be “struck down” by American society (2). Imbolo Mbue explores these challenges that immigrants face and expands on the obstacles they have to overcome in her book Behold the Dreamers. Mbue’s characterization that highlights the contrast between Jende and Neni creates a sense of irony that reflects her theme of how the American Dream is not possible due to the obstacles that separate immigrants from American culture.
When one is concerned about managing unwanted migration, the motivations of such patterns should always be considered. Countless research on illegal immigration agree that people migrate illegally due to economic, social, environmental or political factors. At the end of the day, most of these people are seeking refuge or a better way of living. What motivates them and what encourages more illegal migration is determined by various factors including, but not limited to, their background and needs (micro, meso) and the potential opportunities from the country they migrate to (macro). This is similar to how Hagen-Zanker’s (2008) working paper on why people emigrate focused on the different factors of migration, highlighting factors from a micro,
For instance, Binay wants to be the DILG cabinet secretary in order for his name to be known all over the Philippines in preparation in the incoming 2016 election. However, the purpose of Binay to run in position is to steal the money of the country, and we all know that stealing money from the Filipino people will lead to various problems such as poverty and hunger which may result to death. Based on Aristole’s, this is against the telos. Binay is not exercising virtue. If only the pursuit of happiness is introduced to Binay, there is a great possibilty that he will
