Sociological Perspective On Race And Ethnicity

386 Words2 Pages

I decided to express my Sociological Perspective based on Race and Ethnicity. Being born in the United States I was taught in school; men and women have equal rights and opportunity. Even though this is correct; as a Latina, social patterns taught me differently. As a Latin American woman it’s strange to admit how traditionally, I was raised to be a mom and wife first than anything. Being that both my parents moved to United States to gain equal opportunities, this chapter explained to me how society shapes what we think and do in pattern ways. Take my personal experience as an example; I was a teenage mother at the age of 17. When I became pregnant, I moved in with my husband and his “Latin” family (Mother, Grandmother, Sister, and Stepfather).
