They are portrayed as a totally ‘Other’ race, with less power and animalist reactions toward the ‘Us’ European-America groups. That is manifested in the cultural traits that Warner Bros equates Native Americans with such as non-civilization, barbarism and naivety. In the real life, Native Americans were subject to extensive assimilation process. They were forced to move into the city life, or fight for the U.S. military in foreign countries. For instance, “44,000 Native Americans operated in the United States military during WWII”(defense.gov), and had a voluntary mobilization rate that was 40% higher than those recruited.
Thesis: “The process of illegal immigration is simple and worth it for Mexicans.“ “We were strangers once too“, that’s what Obama - today’s president of the U.S. - said. But what is it like to be an illegal Mexican immigrant in the U.S. today ? Nearly 11.6 million immigrants from Mexico reside in the United States, according to the 2013 ACS, accounting for 28 % of all U.S. immigrants (Source C). These are just the numbers of counted immigrants, so there are probably a lot more illegal Mexicans in the U.S.. Presumably, there are 11.000.000 illegal immigrants whereof 80% percent are Latinos with a great number of Mexicans.
Rivalry also began to form against the Americans between Mexico. In Document 6 it states, ¨ in order for the US to succeed they would need to invade Mexico.¨ This led to many deaths in the Mexican culture. A lot of Mexicans had to move away from the danger and the wars that were bound to happen. When the war between Mexico and the US occurred, Mexico lost a lot of land. On the website "ThoughtCo" it says, “ the Mexican lands were considerably harder to attain.¨ This means that when the Americans discovered that Mexico was having trouble taking care of their land it was made easier for them to take it away because they knew that they could benefit from it by selling the land.
Their postsecondary attainment not only lags behind the attainment of white but also of black and Asian students (Adams 1). Moreover, the college completion rates of Latinos are considerably lower than those of most other ethnic groups: according to the U.S. Department of Education “in 2010, among Hispanic 25- to 29-year-olds, 14 percent had earned a bachelor's degree or higher, compared with 19 percent for African-Americans, 39 percent for whites, and 53 percent for Asian-Americans” (qtd. in Maxwell 2) (!). For all other minority groups, the percentage of college degree holders has increased significantly over the past decade, yet for Latinos it has not increased for more than two decades (Gándara, Contreras 10). The fact that Latinos are not only the fastest-growing ethnic minority but also “the most undereducated major population group in the country” (Gándara, Contreras 18) should illustrate once more how much Latino education matters to everyone.
Definition of statelessness Having a nationality and belonging to a specific country is a natural part of our lives and our communities. But the fact is that more than 10 million people worldwide is declared without a state, due to official removal of their country, consequences of specific actions, done by a specific person, if their country revokes their citizenships etc. In order to describe statelessness, one needs to understand that there are different types of statelessness. A stateless person is defined stateless by the 1954 Stateless Persons Convention as “ a person who is not considered as a national by any State under the operation of its law”. The Palestinians living on the West Bank is de jure statelessness.
This is an example of misrepresentation of people, which may not have happened if they got input from other races. So the raises the question, is TV “too white?” TV is not “too white” because shows include proportionate races rates of the U.S. and actors in Hollywood, they cater to audiences when making movies, and audience members do not care about what race characters are. Actors races are proportionally similar to the U.S. According to the University of Southern California, “Of the top 100 films of 2014, nearly three-quarters of all characters were white” (Santhanam). Also, the U.S. Census Bureau states that in 2016, ”76.9% of people in the US are only white” (US Census Bureau).
As many minorities and immigrants do not seem to share the connection with the emerging adulthood theory as strongly as middle, middle-upper class. Consequently, making Arnett’s theory to lose validity. Howe and Strauss (1991) explained “in this book, we describe what we call the 'peer personality' of your generation. You may share many of these attributes, some of them, or almost none of them. Every generation includes all kinds of people.
Considered as the fastest racial group in the United States, the media roles of Asian Americans are often invisible and are limited to playing old and tiring stereotypes. Landing a part in the media is extremely hard for minorities; especially for Asian Americans. According to the Pew Research Center, Asians constitute approximately 6 percent of the total population of the United States, but Asian Americans only portrayed 3.8 percent of all TV and theatrical roles. This also applies to the two other underrepresented racial groups with Latinos coming at 6.4 percent and African Americans at 13.3 percent. To no surprise, Caucasians represent 72.5 percent of all roles in the big screen.
Do African American people still face racial discrimination for getting a job or even getting their basic rights in The United States of America? Many incidents in our daily life prove that African American still faces discrimination than white people faces. According to the poll from the public religion research institute, “Over 85% people still feel that African American people get discriminated to get the basic rights. But not many white people agree to this. Only 49% of the white people believes that African American does not face racial discrimination at any place”(www.CNN.com).
The other problem is the whitewashing of popular Asian characters in Hollywood productions. It is undeniable that the basis for whitewashing and yellow face is racism. Despite the fact that in the United States Asian Americans make up more than 17 million of citizens , they are less noticeable in American culture than representatives of
