And when the SA position came to me, I thought what could be a better way for me to share my experiences as a transfer student to other students. I can perhaps advice other transfer students for the challenges they might face in their daily lives. Students find themselves lost because of one bad prelim, but
People are deprived of the individuality that forms their essence. Montag is shocked when he looks at the other firemen and finds them all “a mirror-images of himself “(Bradbury 15). They all look the same; same physical features even the same hair colour. In dystopian literature people are merely submissive followers of the system. They do not contribute in any activities except what the government determines; Henriette Wien explains in her

"How much of this history do you need to own?" I feel as a white person that I own all the history listed above. I may not have been the person to enforced any of this but I feel that I 'm indirectly responsible for what happened. Overtime the white man saw the Lakota as second rate compared to them and we treated them as such.
20) once they dominated a huge part of the globe. White Europeans coined these terms as a way to show that non-whites simply cannot survive in this society and that non-whites needed them in order to survive. Nothing about how the white Europeans treated the non-whites was fair. While I know that slavery and racism were the societal norms centuries, even decades ago; I truly believe that my generation is of a different mindset. While I think some of the points Mills presents are relevant, I do think some of them are a bit extreme for today’s times.
I am a white man, a business leader in my community in Johannesburg, and I am not a supporter of the apartheid. Apartheid, this policy or system of segregation and discrimination based on race, is simply not the answer to growing a strong society and government. We are fast approaching a new millenium and yet we still live in the dark ages of oppressive behavior within our society. While other countries have moved forward and made progress by desegregating, our nation has continued to fight against strengthening our society by the endorsement of apartheid.
Everyday I see so many people meeting up with their old friends and catching up, though I also see so many people struggling to maintain a friendship. If we don’t find difficulty meeting new people and getting friendly with them, why do we struggle so hard to maintain the same relation we had no problem making? Why can't I keep friends for a long time? Do I have a talent of picking the wrong ones? Am i not a good judge of character?
With completing the third semester in practicum placement, I was able to benefit from a variety of new things from the class. The placement gave me the opportunity to refresh my memory and skills in what I have learnt two semesters ago. My biggest huddle for this semester was my time management. I am a procrastinator, so completing assignments on time was and still is a challenge for me. I have not come to a full solution to this problem yet, but I did make changes in my life as to how I can manage time management.
Possibly, you have a new occupation, yet you feel more like your occupation has you. Perhaps, it 's the new obligations of a promotion that make you feel worried. Then again maybe you simply have a major project on your plate, and you 're really feeling the weight. Regardless of the reason, you 're weighed down—and your work stress is beginning to affect your own life. You don 't have lunch, you lay wakeful during the night obsessing on your schedule, and you spend half of the end of the week worrying over Monday morning.
Intercultural competence enables a person to interact both efficiently and in a way that is acceptable to others when you are working in a group whose members have diverse cultural backgrounds. The group may consist of two or more people including yourself. ‘Cultural’ may represent all manner of features, including the values and beliefs you have grown up with, your national, regional and local customs and, in particular, attitudes and practices that affect the way you work. For the tolerance of ambiguity category my results showed that I am willing to accept the lack of clarity when dealing people of different cultures and cope with it constructively. Being able to adapt the way I work with other people who may be of an unfamiliar cultural
According to McIntosh, white privilege is like “an invisible weightless knapsack of special provisions, assurances, tools, maps, guides, codebooks, passports, visas, clothes, compass, emergency gear, and blank checks” (McIntosh, p2), also McIntosh believes that she had trouble facing that for she is white as well. Male privilege contains that men have done most of important things in life or in civilization so men must be put in the center, and male hegemony exist in “all the inner sanctum of our most powerful institutions” (McIntosh, p2).

For instance, in Elite Discourse and the Reproduction of Racism, Teun A. van Dijk proposes that elites are influential in the reproduction process of racism. He argues that “white group members and white institutions are daily involved in a multitude of different discourses that express and confirm their dominance”, which plays an important role in producing racism (2 Van Dijk).
