Illegal Immigrants live their everyday life in a way that seems normal, but inside they’re terrified, as they are not sure if their lives are going to be the same tomorrow. They might lose their jobs, their house, and even have to leave their families. Hundreds of illegal immigrants are being deported everyday. Most don’t have an option, and many people don’t think about whether it is important or not. But as a matter of fact it’s so important, it may even affect everyday life around us.
There’s an old saying that “sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt you.” In reality, that saying is wrong. Words hurt a person as much as punch or a kick can. It may not hurt someone physically, but it can scar someone mentally and emotionally. Due to the topics they are associated with, certain words or phrases can elicit strong reactions; some are positive, while others are negative but nonetheless, they all leave an impact on people. Today in class, we discussed a topic that is deeply engraved in American history yet widely avoided by many: race.
There’s fear of going to jail, but there is also fear of being deported and never being able to come to the USA. But why is that? It is true because many people want to support their family, give them a good future or even sometimes the children want a better future for themselves and help their parents into a better house and city. Not many people can get an opportunity like that, because immigration laws are too strict. HOW DOES DEPORTING HELP THE COUNTRY ?
Walking a mile in someone else’s shoes could truly change someone 's perspective of their own life, and how they choose to judge other people’s lives. In life people tend to judge those they know nothing about. People tell us first impressions are always important because in that moment someone is going to decide whether they see you as a likeable person, or if you aren 't worth their time. From that moment on whether you talk to that person or if you never speak to them again they are going to judge what you do. For King and the rest of the black race in the United States, people didn 't give them the chance to be seen for who they are.
Looking at the modern office there are many “glass ceilings” that Steele refers to not only apply to minorities but to genders in general. Some bosses may stop people from being promoted because they are intimidated by women and do not think they should be placed on the same level as themselves, even though they are equally qualified for the position. Steele also talks about how a misused privileged can turn out to be a disadvantage such as the concept of welfare, because people use it to their advantage so much that it become a crutch for the rest of their lives. Wiley addresses a more individual process of failing to meet educational standards hence; “You get ballplayers who could barely form a compound sentence to keep a dog off them.” This statement is still true to this day due to the fact that so many people get accepted on full ride sports scholarships but their academics are below par, so that if something happens that keeps them from competing in sports they can not afford to stay in college nor can they keep their grades
The author author of “Study by Katherine Schulten” also agrees that the culture is an important part of the context but if not taught right would get a cold reaction. Agreeing author explains, “They said they would no longer do the work”(Schulten). The colored students stop doing work because of the reactions they were given when the word was read in class. The author also describes, “for their part, felt to self-conscience”(Schulten). This shows that if the word is not properly “prepared for” it may put colored individual in an uncomfortable situation.
“He doesn’t really need her, but he said he felt right bad about the way things turned out.” (TKAM, pg. 333). However, Helen did not easily escape racism. One morning, Bob Ewell followed Helen closed behind her while she was on her way to work, murmuring foul words at her, for no reason other than that she was Tom’s wife and he was racist. Although he did not attack her, Helen was terrified of him.
LGBT face discrimination not only at work place but also at home and schools. Other communities due to their sexual and gender identity do not accept Latino LGBT communities. Insecurity of job and future prevails in their minds. Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) brought a hope in Latino LGBT communities. It could have prevented discriminators like landlords and employers
Institutional discrimination as a term explores both implicit bias and systemic disparities (this is not to say “the system” is wholly at fault. This is a societal issue people of all races need to work to solve.). An example of a character who deals with implicit bias is Scout, who’s racial viewpoints are (unfortunately) not influenced solely by her father’s, but also those of her classmates and others in her town she interacts with. An example of systemic racism in the novel is the handling of Tom Robinson’s case, and how they knew he would be unable to win solely because of his
Racism has always existed with humans. Racism is treating someone differently of unfairly simply because they belong to a different ethnic community of have a different religion or nationality. When someone believes their race is better than another and feels superior ro other people because of his of her race, is called racism. Throughout time, many people have lost their lives, or lost their families and children, and are left without homes due to racism. Racism causes wars, which could destroy humanity ultimately.
In general, growing up in a community where in justice is order of the day, identity has a role to play. At times people stigmatize you as a result of your identity not minding, you cannot judge a book by its cover. Furthermore, the minorities are mistreated as a matter of their colors. Nevertheless, “Stevenson” listened to his grandmother on the issues of not drinking alcohol; therefore, he grew up to be an advocate for justice. On the other hand, there are something’s which could cause people to fall victims of justice, by not following parental instruction.
What most Americans don’t see is that just as them these people come seeking for the American dream looking for a better life, better education, and better safety that is lacked in one 's’ native country. It is true that the first or old immigrants to this country were the founders the ones that started everything but this doesn 't mean that the rest that come are not willing to continue to make this country grow and continue to be prosperous as it has been and as it has progressed over time. Differently many of the new immigrants and some that even come as refugees come from extremely different parts of the world which are very different to the places to the originality of the old immigrants (Grambs). There are problems in the people that have to do with adjustment, where the “old” immigrants have trouble accepting. As Grambs explains that the insensitivity that the old immigrant experience and is often remembered through family gatherings and showed in literature in which the wounds are revealed and are seen still keep hurting.
This creates discrimination because when people don’t meet new people with different cultures, they begin to think that their own culture is superior to others; and they don’t want to leave their own little cities. Which leads to a very large and huge financial gap between so many cultures just because they don’t want to get to know each other. Jim Crow although disbanded, and has been called inhumane has still lingered throughout today’s society. This is a shame because many people seem to think that they’re better than each other and has created job opportunities for people based
As a society we have to understand that the system oppresses certain individuals. One can be highly qualified for a job but not receive it because of their race. Black people work hard but they don’t make it as far as many other minorities it’s because of their race, the color of their skin inhibits them from achieving every goals they want to, the system is not in their favor. As learned in class Social justice and equality for all people should be of paramount importance. Society needs to stand against prejudice and make sure very member of the community is not discriminated against us.
Individuals were even threatened at relief centers when applying for work” (“Black Americans 1929-1941”). Even when they tried to find better jobs and make more money the whites had a problem. The whites refused them their rights and forced them to accept “lower class” jobs. They aren’t slaves anymore, but they are still living like
