The Racial-Ethnic Composition of Harlem currently has 28% White (Non-Hispanic), 22.5% Blacks (Non-Hispanics), 8.4% Asian (Non-Hispanic) and 38.1% Hispanic (of any race.) according to NYC Community District Profiles. West Harlem consists of Morningside Heights, Manhattanville, and Hamilton Heights and as a whole it is a predominately Hispanic neighborhood within Harlem itself. African Americans make up only about a quarter of the West Harlem population. East Harlem was a predominantly Italian American neighborhood, but its racial-ethnic composition has changed over the years and it is now known as a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood.
Reflection Paper: Myself Some of the sources have found that, it’s difficult to measure yourself and person’s upbringing’s roles in shaping his life as many societal parameters and variables are responsible for person’s mental and physical state and his prestige in the society. In the world, each person goes through the changes with the passage of time and emerges as a special person with unalike personality, talent and attitude (Cheung, 1993). On this note, being Caucasian, one of the paramount races of the humankind and the population of this race is mostly belongs to diverse regions such as Europe, North Africa, Western Asia, Central Asia, and South Asia. My upbringing is also diverse such as my race concentration as having Dutch father,
White habitus can be used to explain white 's residential and social segregation. One way this rings true is by the locations on where they live. With Bonilla-Silver and Embrick interview with white students, only four of the 41 students claimed they lived in neighborhoods with a significant black or minority presence (p. 327). Whites may not try to do this, but they seem to live in different places compared to people of color. Obviously, this leads to whites and colored people being segregated from each other 's lives.
The meaning of jus soli is literally citizenship based on where one is born, while jus sanguinis is based on certain heritage from one's parents (Weissbrod and Collins, 2006, 251). Today Palestinian is the biggest group of stateless people in the world (Shiblak).

This difference has made it harder than ever to be a Haitian living in another country. According to the 2010 census report for The Bahamas, 17.3% of the people living in the Bahamas are citizens of another country. With just under 40,000 (64.4%) being from Haiti or of Haitian descent, 9.2% hail from Jamaica and the rest are a mixture of other races and nationality (see Fig. 1). From the 16 surveys responses that I have analyzed, my research shows that the majority of people, both Haitians, Haitian Bahamians and Bahamians realize that Bahamians do not display the same negative attitude towards people of other nationalities that are living in The Bahamas (see Fig.
Also, the U.S. Census Bureau states that in 2016, ”76.9% of people in the US are only white” (US Census Bureau). The first quote says that nearly 75% of actors were white. The second piece of evidence says that 76.9% of U.S. citizens are white. The first piece of evidence says that a little less than 75% of actors were white and the U.S. Census says that a little over 75% of actors are white. This shows, with the evidence from the first quote, that the ratio of actors being white and the U.S. being white are proportionally similar.
It needs to be added that our focus will circle around the population of blacks that reside in Brazil. One can easily observe a division of class between the black and white Brazilians. Blacks earn only half of what whites do, and usually have shorter educations. (Race in another America chapter
Polygamy dates back to a long time ago, and it has been practiced by many countries of different cultures all over the world. The Hebrew society partially accepted polygamy and it happened in China too. Polygamy was also encountered at the Native Americans, in the west of African continent and the ancient Greece. Polygamy was largely accepted throughout the world until the Roman Empire and Roman Catholic Church as imposed the rules of having just one wife, but multiple lovers were the norm. Polygamy was largely accepted during the last two thousands of years in the sub-Saharan Africa as well.
My peers had a great influence on how I defined myself in early childhood because I deeply valued and cared about what others thought of me. In the past, I found myself identifying myself to have commonalities with people surrounding me. When I was surrounded by a diverse group of people, I would find that I would gravitate towards those who appeared to have something in common with me. I believe I was drawn towards people of the same age range, race, and culture the same as my own because it is something familiar. Although I still think that I gravitate towards individuals like myself, I believe I try to branch out and meet others individuals that differ from me more than I did in that past.
