Their performance in education and the permission of the white expressed the alternative attitudes of the white to the African Americans. The relation between two races also became less intense due to the appearance of a few interracial marriages. However, the iniquity still existed in lynching cases and employments. They experienced violence and had less opportunity to get good jobs as white. Although the equality has not been accepted widely among the native Americans, more or less the black received positive attitudes of the white which help them gained initial success in life.
He led the resistance movement in the 50’s which eventually led to “equal rights”. To an extent, it did lead to a decrease in public discrimination and offered countless new opportunities for the previously oppressed black people. However, this also lead to hidden discrimination and indirect discrimination. According to Citizenadvice.org.uk “Indirect discrimination is when there’s a practice, policy or rule which applies to everyone in the same way, but it has a worse effect on some people than others ” ("Indirect
First of all, religious purposes are one of the reason that lead superstitious to be considered as psychological influence. Why do I say that it is religious purposes? It is because that most of the beliefs come from traditions that has passed on from generation to generation and from our upbringing. People teaches superstitions to us. Superstitions can be pass on from many ways such as from religious beliefs, parenting and so on.
Racism is a huge problem in our societies currently. We see it everywhere from the news articles on our phones, news stories on our TVś or smart devices and we even see it in our own communities. Which brings me to my next point that although it is not the same ¨racism¨, that we have learned about in our history classes, it still exists because it has evolved and it will continue to to evolve and exist, unless we put an end to all racism. Racism is when someone is judging or putting someone else down who is a different race with the belief that their race is more superior over the others. Putting an end to all racism would not be something that happens by tomorrow or the next day, but with the right people in charge, the right ideas put into action and right attitude, it can happen a lot quicker than people think.
Religion is considered to be the most influential and persuasive force that inspires individuals and communities. The pre history events reveal that actions of love and self-sacrifice are rooted in holding religious beliefs. Kimbell, in his book, When Religion Becomes Evil, defines religion, “The word religion evokes a wide variety of images, ideas, practices, beliefs, and experiences, some positive and some negative” (pg 20). Hence, religion involves human understanding; the way people value God and some personal thinking of fundamental reality. Religious life is set in that way that defines appropriate and inappropriate behavior.
Racism is discrimination towards another race and claimed that one 's race is superior to others. It is a significant issue that has been around since the 19th century. Racism exists in every part of the world such as in the West; racial discriminations are most severe against the Black, Asians, African Indians and more. These people faced difficulty to being accepted in the social world as they suffered from prejudices made by ignorant people. Although this racial issue is not severe in Brunei and may not be taken seriously, it is still prevalent and cannot be denied that racism does happen and exist among Brunei community.
Many minorities in the United States have continued to complain about being treated more harshly than whites and the Department of Justice believes that racial profiling and police discrimination will continue to be a big problem. Critics of policing say that police officers discriminate against minorities because they see them as second-class citizens, stating that many officers are white and drawn from some conservative section of the community. Predisposition, preformed opinions about groups of individuals that may lead to racist attitudes within the police, and socialization are major roles in the formation of racist attitudes within policing. Socialization is the influences of parents, families, peers, and the community in training individuals about the norms, rules, and customs of a locality with an aim to compel
There are many ways it is shown, however both ways are similar in each country. People might say, that racism in the USA is over, however, African-Americans might think different. Yes, they do have the same rights and equal freedom, but you can still sense the difference between each skin coloured group. The documentary “Bowling for Columbine”, gives a great explanation on how “white people” still have a dirty image for the “black”. Michael Moore proves by showing us how people report a person that
During the 1940’s, about thirty years before The Bluest Eye was written, the standards of society caused young men and women of color to desire lighter skin, blue eyes, and blonde hair. In a time where racism was prevalent, the African American culture longed for the freedom that each white person was given. Fighting for their rights after the Great Depression, the confidence of the African American people, especially that of young girls, remained poor due to the wrongful bullying of the many racist white people. A good self image and upbringing for young African American individuals remained crucial for the well being and mental health of each young person. Though many were negatively affected by the beauty standards of this time, few African Americans decided to rebel against the societal views of skin color.

Our cultural identity comprises of both our nationality and our ethnicity. The idea of nationality refers to our tradition, religion and cultural background. Patriotism being the most powerful emotive emotion, any community can form. Hence I feel the study of our cultural identity would give me a better idea of myself.
