Throughout this section, Toll addresses Washington’s approach to this ideology as well how other people criticized his work. The third section revolves around the ideology of cultural revitalization. More specifically, Toll discusses W.E.B. DuBois’ belief that the prejudices from white people were not as important to the relationship between races. Instead the most important part was the revitalization of the black community and being able to associate the community with being dignified (312).
In the moment he sees her on the scaffold, he chooses to change his name and to never reveal his authentic identity. Instead, he uses the alias of a doctor named ‘Chillingworth’. Though not formally a doctor, his background in alchemy and knowledge of herbal remedies allow him to mislead the Puritans. He takes on the job of caring for the town reverend, Dimmesdale. Eventually, he learns this is the man who impregnated his wife, and Chillingworth begins to seek revenge.
“Chyna and Me” by Joyin C Shih, and “Causes of Prejudice” by Vincent N. Parrillo are two literal texts that support the argument of race being a socially constructed term to outcast those who “do not” reach the social standards. Shih offers us her personal perspective about race, and also goes a step further to portray race
Christopher’s perseverance in illusions was caused by the fact that his father lied to him about his mother’s death and Christopher’s literal logic. Christopher’s father made many lies to hide that fact that he was Wellington’s murderer, so Christopher became scared of his father as he felt that he could become his murder victim. Christopher is not able to understand people and distinguish whether they are telling a fact or an exaggeration, so he is not able to differentiate between illusions and real truths. In the novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night - Time, Mark Haddon implies that illusions are taken as reality in an autistic person’s point of
Foucault was an against the grain type of theorist who was a member of a target group but that did not keep him from expressing himself. He also was fully aware of how he social constructs of race; Foucault’s theoretical approach was that a more globalized society should render racism obsolete (Keith, 2005). To address social problems Foucault would gain every aspect of knowledge on a subject of social justice, and the ethical dilemma of racism and homelessness and how the two intersect. He would favor rebellion over democracy. To compare and contrast the three social theorist there are some similarities among them all.
Throughout Hamlet, Prince Hamlet is faced against many situations that question his mental stability and ability to make decisions. His indecisiveness comes from the way he reacts to the situations he is put in and the way his mind presents these situations to him. The most important indecisive moments are Hamlet’s suicidal thoughts, his father’s ghost, and his vengeance to Claudius. When Hamlet is told by a ghost that has a resemblance of his father that Claudius had killed him, he vows to take vengeance and revenge his father’s death. Instead of taking action and killing claudius, he questions whether the ghost was actually his father asking to revenge his death or the devil resembling his father to try to tempt him into murder.
Therefore, when he hears the eavesdropper and kills him, he thinks that it is the killer of his father. This foreshadows the future events that Hamlet will undergo to avenge his father. The open door ultimately provides a symbolic relationship to the thoughts of Hamlet; he is on the edge of whether or not he should take revenge on the killer of his father. When he fully enters the room to talk to his mother, the door is closed which symbolizes that his locked up inner thoughts are now being shared with his mother and only with her. The death of Polonius foretells future events that his mother may or may not be aware of before the time it happens.
Racism is alive and well in our modern day society. The fact that racism is a prominent form of social justifications cannot be neglected. On the contrary to this, Angeline Price’s article titled, “Working Class Whites,” she argues that racism is gone but this idea of “classism” would be the “last available method of prejudice in our society.” However, Michael Omi and Nell Bernstein think otherwise. Omi argues that inferential racism already exists in our society, and it is the prime tool in categorizing people based on the color of their race. In Bernstein’s article, “In Living Color: Race and American Culture,” he provides vivid examples of younger generations adapting and abiding to their definitions of racism.
I didn’t think that symbolic interaction applied here because it is more of a micro analysis, and structural-functionalism is about how aspects of society are functional and work in harmony, which also does not apply to this topic. This approach is about analyzing the inequalities of aspects in the social world such as race, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation etc., and the issues that stem from them. I believe that in the realm of racial inequality, this perspective ties in with it the most due to the nature of “conflict” that is deeply embedded in its foundation. Racial inequality is an example of social conflict because of the divide that is caused between various races. In this case specifically, the divide between white America and the rest of the minority groups comprising America.
Race is the social construct of social identities. We distinguish the uniqueness of individuals in such ways that our genotype and phenotype are closely associated to classifying these individuals into a particular race. Our culture, physical characteristics, and ethnicity separates us into five different categories of race: Black/African American, Yellow/Asian (including Pacific Islanders), Red/Native Americans, Brown/Hispanic/Latino, and White/Caucasian. Throughout history, darker complexions were often looked down upon. White skin becomes more favorable and are seen to be more superior than the other colors, creating this ideology that justifies inequality.
