Embracing diversity in the media is important because it will shed light on the importance of protecting against racial stereotyping. Racial stereotyping is a well know problem that all minorities have faced. Racial stereotyping is when a person has preconceived notions on a person because they are of a certain race. A great deal of stereotyping stems from the media’s lack of diversity that has casted stereotypes towards minorities. Not only does the media have a scarcely portrayal of minorities, but when they do, they repetitively show them in a repetitive negative manner, which is how stereotypes form.
The social readjustment rating scale of the past year of events is a challenging survey since your reflecting on all of the events that have happened to you in the past year (Manning, Curtis, McMillen & Atteneweiler, 2011, p.32). My score showed that I have a moderate stress level in my life. I think my stress level has gone down from years before even so my current stress level is mostly related to work.

How Kids Handle Poverty Social class, in and of itself can affect how people live and perceive life in its entirety. Social class is where someone exists in comparison to others, this is altered by many traits such as economic status and marital status, but also depends on inborn traits such as race and gender. One’s social class usually can be seen in their peers, habits and lifestyle choices. This inarguably affects a person’s life greatly; and in most cases, is the foundation upon which people build their lives, unless they find some form of dissatisfaction and seek to reside within another social class. This can be seen in the documentary through how these children describe their lives, as most of them have never known anything else versus
It is undeniable fact that social issues such as divorce, racism, abuse, alcoholism, and many other forms of discrimination are part and parcel of our day to day living in the society. Have people ever imagined what a society without the above social issues would look like? People have to think and ponder over that. After a close and careful consideration of the matter, people will realize that the society cannot be worth-living without them. Society as whole have the good and bad people, there are the rich and the poor people.
Alienation in life All of us, especially in recent years we can see, it is perhaps better to say, we feel the changes in society, not only on the material plane, but also on socio-emotional. The fight for survival or horrible ambition and desire for power, however, it led people in some strange, I can say, disturbed relationships. Alienation is the feeling of not belonging and that no one cares about you. The needs that people need like food, shelter, and water are not all person needs, we as people have a deep need for community and with alienation pushing people into diverse group. There are a lot more neglected relationships that should be based on respect, helping, having fun and there are more frequent superficial interests,
The impoverished have the option to do something about the situation that they have been put in, yet they choose to become dependent on the rest of the world.

The social mirror is simply the perception of ourselves, on the basis of the social paradigms, the opinions and perceptions of the people around us. In today 's society people have too much with what others think of them, and also the way in which others see. When people give their vision of the way in which you see is only its contribution more than a clear image of who you are. That is why the point of view that we have of ourselves cannot come only from others. The social mirror is currently having too much negative impact on our lives.
When there are incidents of racism or discrimination against players, it is big news and the whole country knows about it. African Americans has had to deal with coming from a racist background in professional sports where they weren't even allowed to play professional sports to now where they are judged and still have to do with racism. It is unfair that African Americans have to deal with such demoralizing people and are not viewed as equal despite slavery, the civil rights movement and such things as that society still had racist views. However, we can use this to change society permanently. If we can get rid of racism in professional sports that's a start.
Base on the analysis above, we identified there are three barriers that make the lack of public participation in decision making. The barriers are the nature of life in contemporary society, administrative processes and current practices and techniques of participation. Nature of life in contemporary society The barriers stemming from the practical realities of daily life are tied to the social class position of citizens and include factors like transportation, time constraints, family structure, number of family members in the labor force, child care, and economic disadvantages. Some people express a desire to participate more fully in their communities, but the demands of day-to-day life get in the way.

In this article from the NAACP’s monthly journal Crisis, the authors highlighted how gentrification negatively affects minorities by displacement, in particular those from the African American community. Furthermore, they made the argument that this systematic force needs to end in order to combat the spread of economic inequality. To back up their claim Portland, Oregon was used to back up their thesis of gentrification hurting the economically disadvantaged, because while it is cited as being the model gentrification hub, as well as one of the more progressive cities in the nation, African Americans have continually bore the brunt of the city’s continued rapid urban redevelopment with being priced out of their own neighborhoods, such as the
