These houses had incredibly harsh conditions and could compare to that of a prison. Families was separated and forced to work every day. Despise these conditions, more people became desperate enough to become a workhouse inmate. When people from the countryside moved to the cities, it started the urbanization. This created new industries that made the growing cities a source of wealth in England.
This expansion of cities made the needs greater for the cities to grow, so we see the creation of the industrial core. The growth of the middle class and suburbs was a result of the urban boom. The social classes start to come in place because of the middle class. Many people look at the social division as a bad thing, but if all of the people were rich than there would be no need for the growth and develop. That is what makes the Gilded Age a celebrated time, it was not perfect time period by all standards but this idea of the social division was important to the growth of this county at this time.
Cities improve due to innovation, but humans residing in them may not. The Industrial Revolution was a period in time where new inventions helped labor become less taxing and more efficient in the South. On the other hand, the North developed urban cities, which attracted many people. Urban cities had become the epitome of civilization: ease of life and wealth was present, but not available to everyone. To elaborate, these urban cities provided job opportunities to women.
It made everything look contaminated and crowded. As Britannica states, “As Western industrial cities rapidly expanded during the first part of the 20th century, factories encroached upon residential areas, tenements crowded in among small houses, and skyscrapers overshadowed other buildings. To preserve property values and achieve economy and efficiency in the structure and arrangement of the city.” (Susan S. Fainstein), I can tell that urban planning got messed up and the city got overcrowded during the industrialization process. This is another quote that shows how bad the city planning was during the era of the industrialization: “The slums, congestion, disorder, ugliness, and threat of disease provoked a reaction in which sanitation improvement was the first
With the sociology of sport we are able to assume that a contribution as to why sports are favored is because it gives people the chance to fit in and form relationships Another reason why I think the sociology of sport is a good thing is that it brings up beliefs and ideologies, whether it challenging it or reinforcing it. It is ok for people to have different opinions on beliefs and ideologies as it is necessary for society to work. If everyone thought the same on a topic than there would not be different social worlds. An example of this is the gender ideology. Since the beginning, the male has been the dominant gender, which has given them more opportunities than women.
Inspired by european city rebuilding projects, American cities started clearing away older neighborhoods and creating grand avenues with impressive buildings. The only problem with the growing population was finding housing for the new residents. In Document 6 Nash explains how urban geography changed with emerging central businesses, few people living downtown, middle class residential areas stretched out beyond working class neighborhoods, and the growth of the suburbs which led to better transportation. Many of the rich lived in palatial mansions in the heart of the city while the moderately well to do took advantage of less expensive land on the outer edges of the city thus leading to what was known as the growth of the suburbs. However the poor could not afford housing in the city or in the suburbs and this led to the growth of tenement housing.
People from the countryside moved to the cities. This started the urbanization. New industries was constructed, and made the growing cities a source of wealth in England. Unfortunately, urbanization also had negative effects. The working-class neighborhoods were filthy, with no ventilation between houses that was badly constructed.
These advancements had great effects on the structure of cities at the time. Around the time of these advancements, immigrants from all over Europe and Asia decided to attempt to make lives for themselves in America. This increase in population also led to changes in the cities, making them more urban. Ultimately, many factors including technological advancements, immigration, and the new laissez-faire government led to fairly extreme changes in American cities in the late 1800s. First, technological changes affected cities drastically in the 1800s with the creation of new inventions and
Many women and children started to work because the introduction of industry and rapid rise of urbanization led to women and children having to work to pay for the bills, house and food. Farmers moved to cities while cities grew rapidly. As cities increased so did overcrowding, lack of housing, poor sanitary conditions, disease, and poverty. More slums came into place and settlement houses formed to help the poor and immigrants. Jane Addams founded the Hull House which was a social and civic center that helped the poor and immigrants.
When there are incidents of racism or discrimination against players, it is big news and the whole country knows about it. African Americans has had to deal with coming from a racist background in professional sports where they weren't even allowed to play professional sports to now where they are judged and still have to do with racism. It is unfair that African Americans have to deal with such demoralizing people and are not viewed as equal despite slavery, the civil rights movement and such things as that society still had racist views. However, we can use this to change society permanently. If we can get rid of racism in professional sports that's a start.
