Americans were not welcoming of the immigrants, they judged them. Each race was lesser “race” than the other. My family and I migrated to the US from Argentina, so I understand the difficulties of migrating. In that time period though, immigrants were very poor and when arriving to the US they found out wealth wouldn’t be possible. Honestly,
The public often stereotypes low-income youth of color as uneducated, lazy, lacking good family values, unintelligent, unmotivated, etc.. However, poverty among minorities in the United States is not the result of individuals, but rather is the result of structural, social issues that contribute to the poverty. New York City has some of the worst aspects of the American city when it comes to racial issues. In New York City, people of color have being unconsciously marginalized by using various tactics to isolate them. Studies have found that more than half of black and Hispanic youths are terrified of discrimination.
This inequality has caused minorities to lose faith in the American system of democracy. The shortage of political rights has caused a significant partition between majority and minority. Minorities are defined as a group of people who deviate from the social, economical and political majority standards. The division of humans among these differences is diminishing the standards of humanity between
Men owned men because of the color of their skin. These ex-slaves were uneducated and were scared of any change in their lives. What could be theirs today, may not be theirs tomorrow. It’s a shame that people had to live in fear of the government taking something away from them and all they did was share part of their lives to be documented and the documentation was not even accurate. “Freedom had come to a nation of four million slaves, and it changed their lives in deep and important ways.
One of the problems with the New Deal was that it didn’t support minorities nearly enough, which is shown in both Document B: African Americans and the New Deal, and Document G: Whither the American Indian?. In Document G, it is stated that the New Deal did very little to support civil rights, most new deal programs discriminating against blacks. Document G shows that there was unfair treatment toward American Indians with New Deal programs, as most programs gave no benefits to Indians, but still negatively affected them in some ways, such as with their housing difficulty. Both of these documents show that if anything should be changed about the New Deal, it’s the way it affects minorities. There are also some citizens who believe the New Deal isn’t dealing with the Depression, as shown in Document F: Song.
There are many other traps around America that deceive the immigrants because their weakness of not knowing English and the desire of getting a great life in America which lead them unpreparedly get fooled by the businessmen. These traps prevented the immigrants from leaving America, because of the significant amount of debt that they have to pay each month, which forced them to keep working and become the slave of this capitalistic society in America. Unfortunately, even they work very hard, in most of the time they will not get anything in return, such that Jurgis’s family cannot even keep the house at the of the book and many of family members’ health destroyed by the harsh working conditions in the
Those who are attentive in the study of multiculturalism have even defined counselors negatively in the sense of treatment by calling them impervious to the beliefs and values of their culturally distinctive clients. There are many groups who are fortunate in the American society, such as males, Caucasians, heterosexuals, and people with high socioeconomic status, however most of these individuals do not fully comprehend their privileges because they have not lived life in the shoes of those who are less
The government let African Americans fall behind economically, educationally, and socially, all while building up whites and helping them achieve everything. The fact that African American and women veterans were excluded from the benefits of the GI Bill angers me. They risked their lives just as much as the white men did, they participated in helping their country just as much, and yet because they are not seen as the “desirable” person, they are left in the dust and then accused of being “lazy”. And it is sad because things like this still go on today: gender and race differences when it comes to pay, job exclusion if a person’s name isn’t “white” enough, sexual harassment in the workplace, rape victims being blamed for the actions of the perpetrator, and so many others. Minority groups are still antagonized by the people (read: old, white men) who are in power, and who have been in power for over 200 years simply because of the way their ancestors immigrated to the United
It segregated the white people from the colored people which made the colored peoples lifes unfair and many of them didn 't have an easy life. Colored people in the southern states had it even harder because they had to search harder for jobs and opportunities in life. Most of the colored community was not allowed to have a luxuries life like many white americans had in that time period. The white community did not allow interaction between the two groups to be fair and many times it resulted in a harsh ending for the colored people. Everything that a colored person did the whites didn 't like had strong consequences for the colored people.
The low self-esteem is often caused because the people are raised or built to understand that they have no worth and that they are meant for nothing but to be raped and to do work without pay. The negative impacts that sex trafficking can have on people are often overlooked and downplayed. Some may ask what impacts sex trafficking may have on any given person due to the ignorance of this subject. Well, human and sex trafficking or forced labor can negatively impact a person by giving them no self-worth and making them believe they are not entitled to anything in their life. In
