Firstly, segregation of the Blacks and Whites. This is the result of stereotyping. Stereotyping is the linkage of a certain image or idea to people of certain groups, usually based on inadequate information. Since media is unable to show the public everything, decisions made by the media when showing a person or groups can reinforce stereotyping (Baran 438). For instance, it can portray the Whites more positively than the Blacks.
Additionally, Hispanic immigrants were described as criminals, drug dealers, and rapists by Donald Trump during his presidential campaign. Given these stereotypes, assumptions can be drawn that the Hispanic culture is made up of people who are meant to serve others through manual labor and people who bring crime and harm to others. Two value dimensions will be discussed to further examine the Hispanic culture and how it is related or unrelated to these stereotypes. The first value dimension to be discussed is masculinity verses femininity. Masculinity versus femininity represents a cultures desire for achievement, assertiveness, and material success (“Country Comparison,” 2018).
This event shows how humans nature does not change along with the time period. In the article “Air Security and Terrorist Threats” written by Timothy G. Borden, he states, “Some of its screening factors were kept secret, which raised suspicions that it might actually be a racial profiling system directed at passengers of Middle Eastern descent.” (Borden, page 10). After the 9/11 events took place, racial profiling became much more apparent than ever before. In the article it states that security screenings became more directed at passengers of Middle Eastern Descent. This shows that all flight members did not receive equal treatment as one another.
be the language frequently used in correlation with refugees in order to prompt a reaction. Nyers argues that often within refugee movements, these specific words are used to describe the situation: complex, crisis, border control, problem, national security, and political emergency (Nyers). This form of discursive language can be argued to entail several implications. One can argue that by portraying refugees through the given words, one contributes to the social construction of refugees as a problem. Furthermore, it creates the notion of a us-vs.-them situation, which creates a social between the citizens of the host country and the refugees.
This use of power by white people over black individuals has caused numerous black individuals to view themselves as trapped in their own skin, which is a concept Fanon defines as “blackness”. In Frantz Fanon’s article, The Fact of Blackness, he speaks about how black people do not feel the weight of their “blackness” until they are under the scrutiny of white counterparts and viewed as objects. Fanon states, “A feeling of inferiority? No, a feeling of nonexistence. Sin is Negro as virtue is white.
He became double-conscientious after being rejected in part of his childhood. This is true for many Negroes in America who considered themselves as problems. Double consciousness is viewing oneself from a different perspective particularly, others’ perspectives. (Bois, 2005 ) African Americans developed multiple identities for the different social situations. It is suggested that Negroes had struggled to deliver their message to the world because they didn’t want to overemphasise Africanism in America while simultaneously preserving their African identities, in order to form their own message based on their history.
In Jesse Singal’s “How to Fight A Rumor,” He brings up an excellent point with this passage, “We’re particularly likely to spread negative rumors about “high-status” individuals, whether they’re our bosses, professors, or celebrities.” The Dunning-Kruger effect explains why our ‘above average’ mentality will convince us to how the higher ups should exemplify their jobs or lives. I’m sure President Trump inspired opinions about how to address events differently. However, this is taken in another direction. Rather than it being interpreted compared to the previous examples, it governs itself on fear and anxiety according to Daniel Goleman’s “Anatomy of A Rumor: It Flies on Fear.” Dr. Ralph Rosnow on this article expands on this in saying, “A rumor is a kind of hypothesis, a speculation that helps people construct sense of a chaotic reality or gives them a small sense of control in a threatening world.” In light of this a rumor starts to become clear. For example, if a boss or coworker in a workplace starts to generate situations difficult for you, you need to talk about the possibilities with your family and friends to confront them.
It will create acceptance towards sexist language. When this accepted attitude spreads over the country, sexism will occur. So, by electing Trump as president we will reverse the progress feminists have made. If the president is sexist and gets away with it, this creates the feeling that everybody can. Young boys will see Trump as a role model, and they might pick up on his attitude towards women.
Throughout many years, racism has taken place starting as early as the construction of what is now the United States. There have been certain issues such as different colors of skin clashing to even demeaning a different race placing them into a different social class. Certain races, majority not being white, have been forced into slavery without even understanding why this is taking place to them. Races were being split into different groups. The white groups were looked to as superior compared to the black race who were looked to as just property and free labor.
It is of great ease for those opposed to posit that the federal judiciary usurps the power of the executive if it sets precedent that narrows the authority that the Constitution grants the executive, but it is far more difficult for those opposed to accept the reality that the federal courts operate not to remove power from the executive, but rather to prevent it from infringing upon the rights of the people. For example, at present, various United States District Courts and Circuit Courts of Appeal have ruled upon the executive actions of the current presidential administration of Donald J. Trump with regard to immigration policies, with the Supreme Court following by granting writ of certiorari as well. Executive Order 13769, signed by President Donald J. Trump and infamously referred to as the “travel ban,” saw actions brought against it in federal courts in nearly fifty different times and on behalf of various parties, many of them states. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued a temporary restraining order on the executive action. The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia ruled in another instance that the executive action violated the Establishment Clause of the Constitution,
It is nice to know that there are firms that do go out and make inclusive efforts on behalf of minorities. To be representative the characteristics of my sample population have to match those of the entire target population. In this study, I have to make sure that the right variety of people is interviewed. If the sample is not representative it can be subjected to biases. It could be that with me picking only African Americans and Latinos I risk over-representing these groups while under-representing other minority groups which can be a valid argument.
Trump exhibits Roberts-Miller’s oversimplification when he portrays his criticism towards muslims. Roberts-Miller describes oversimplification to be a subjective point of view. Simplification is most effective where there is complex issues like globalization and immigration. An idea that all complex problems have simple solutions. Trump is famously known to have an answer and a solution for everything and everyone.
One concern is that BWP leads to over incarceration, which Kelling and Bratton respond to this by admitting that, yes, it does; however, the crimes people are being imprisoned for are far less serious than those that are being prevented by BWP and their sentences are thus much shorter. But, the main concern is that SQF, and therefore BWP is inadmissibly discriminatory towards minorities. Once again, Kelling and Bratton give ground by not defending the abhorrent results of the 2011 SQF’s, which resulted in over 700,000 stops and only a 6% success rate. They instead talk about how much their methods have improved with far fewer stops and a higher success rate. This may seem like an odd way to address the claim of discrimination, but the point is that they now are making much more calculated decisions when stopping people, and not just frisking minorities at random.
They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” (Patten, 2015) I believe Trump was completely out of line to publicly announce this, and not all illegal immigrants from Mexico and other Hispanic countries have brought crime, drugs, and, rape. Many of the undocumented are coming to the United States solely for a second chance at a better life for themselves and their
This campaign season has cast a spotlight onto the unfavorable, and sometimes ugly aspect of immigration. While this topic is inherently political in nature, it can be agreed across all sides of the political spectrum that illegal immigration is a major issue and has been handled ineffectively within recent years. As immigration falls within the national sphere of our democracy, this in essence, leads to many inconsistencies between states regarding criminal charges brought against illegal immigrants. Also, by grouping the nation’s immigration policies under federal dictation, this inherently leads to many systematic flaws. The text highlights a few particular instances where the location of an illegal immigrant determines the person’s fate.
