Racial inequality has continuously played a major factor in employment, housing, and other social situations and has sparked more study by scholars into the role that discrimination plays and if actually has a role in the problems we see today. The article discusses how it believes discrimination may be motivated by thing like stereotypes and racism but discrimination does not have one outstanding cause that stands out above the rest explaining why it happens. The scholars in this article separate the definition of racial discrimination into two parts “ differential treatment and disparate impact.” Differential treatment happens when the individual facing discrimination is being treated unequal because of his or her race. Disparate
Within social psychology lies the study of attitudes and stereotypes. These phenomena include a type of bias known as implicit bias; the term implicit bias describes attitudes towards people or associate stereotypes with them without conscious knowledge. We can measure this type of bias through the Implicit Association Test (IAT), Go/No Association Test (GNAT), Implicit Relational Assessment Procedure (IRAP), Evaluative Priming Task, Extrinsic Affective Simon Task (EAST). Each measure has their own strengths and weaknesses; this essay will compare the Implicit Association Test to the Go/no-go Association Test and will conclude why IAT is a greater way of measuring bias in contrast to GNAT.

Being an American is simply having equal rights, equal opportunities, freedom, and a safer, better life. There are countries that are so strict that if you are seen doing something you are not supposed to, you will be arrested and killed. That’s why we are so privileged to live in a country that allows us to do what we want to.
Every day over 352,000 babies are born. The second these babies enter the world, the opportunities and privileges given to them vary but are set at their birth. Privilege constantly determines opportunities whether the individual can help it or not, and it is revealed constantly throughout our country's history. In the past privilege has affected minorities lives and their opportunities in careers, freedom of speech, and much more. Unconscious biases and privileges are still very well present today but not as obvious.
The reputation of women is expressed in her speech. She talks about how women are just as powerful as men, women can do the same job that a man can do, women deserve the same job opportunities as men. She appeals to her audience’s emotions by talking about her life and how she grew up with the diversity between blacks and white. She felt the same diversity happening between men and women, and how men were becoming more “powerful” than women.
One would think prejudice is a thing of the past. Unfortunately, that is not the case, prejudice is still a common factor in todays society. Vincent N. Parrillo’s essay “Causes of Prejudice,” helped me to understand how we are affected not just psychologically but in a sociological way as well, as John A. Camacho explains in his A Few Bad Apples opinion piece published in the Pacific Daily News. Both forms of prejudice are continued to be explained through Stud Turkel’s “C.P Ellis,” he gives us an understanding of psychological and sociological prejudice through C.P Ellis’own experiences. This furthers our understanding on how we can be affected by both psychological and sociological prejudices. The Primary causes of prejudice are psychological as shown by emotional prejudice and demonstrated through an authoritarian personality, that may result in displaced aggression. Where Sociological prejudice can be shown by social norms.
“Integration and Desegregation”, written by Ralph Wiley addresses issues with integration and how helpful it could be to desegregate areas in the community to benefit all of the citizens and not just one group.”Affirmative Action”, written by Shelby Steele addresses the issue of people using a tool that is meant to help as a reason to be lazy. Both of the authors in the passages use extreme negatives and positive examples to get their points across to their audience, resulting in the reader having to think about what the author is really saying.
Do you think gender issues are still a problem in modern America? As we’ve had many technological advancements has our views for civilizations remained the same? Previously in America’s society one’s gender played an important role in their life. Whereas if you were born female then you typically would stay home to cook, clean, and breed children. While males being the providers, they typically went out to hunt and “bring home the bacon.” “Today gender roles in our society have changed considerably in recent decades: there are more women in the workforce, many doing jobs held exclusively or primarily by men, and a growing number of men who choose to stay home with the kids while their partner works outside the home.” (639) Although we’re transitioning away from the stereotypical view of gender roles many issues still exist, such as women to earn less than males from the workforce. But
“If these things are true, this is not such a free country; one’s life is not what one makes it; many doors open for certain people through no virtues of their own” (McIntosh, 15).
Additionally, the results showed that “a white name yields as many more callbacks as an additional eight years of experience” (Bertrand). A white sounding name is equal to eight years of hands-on, real world experience, people. That fact alone shows built in bias. And, in a survey done in conjunction with the study, “more than a third of African Americans reportedly experienced racial discrimination during a hiring process. (Bertrand)” One can’t help but wonder why?
positive change to the people it serves as they encourage their green initiatives, to support and share fresh ideas and unique perspectives by hiring different kinds of people, cultures, and abilities (Publix, 2014). Moreover, Publix continues to thrive as they continue to serve a wide variety of customers, support a diverse community that provide the right product in the right store location, while continuing to purchase products from mainstream and diverse vendors and suppliers (Publix, 2014). Rhode (2006), states that organizations like Publix Supermarket, Inc could be more inclusive in their philanthropic giving by increasing self-awareness of intrinsic problems towards their mode of social problem solving (p.263).
In David Masci article we are introduced to the theory of how racial discrimination is alive in the workforce. The article begins with a specific example, an African American women who has worked hard to advance in her employment but is held back simply because of the color of her skin. Masci’s claims and arguments are supported thoroughly with actual statistics and examples from modern society. Through his use of pathos, logos, and ethos Masci is able to structure a feeling of action, in order to recognize differences among black employees, and the amount of extra work is needed from them to advance to a position that is still held my limitations of white supremacy in America.
