“America was born out of a desire for self-determination, a longing for the human dignity that only independence can bring.” Maurice Saatchi may be British, but his quote about America exemplifies what the country stands for. America is not an Anthem society because we value individualism, not collectivism. We are free to express ourselves, no matter what we think. We are free to learn what we want. We are free to live for ourselves and be who we want.
Also, according to Gentile and Imberman, “uniforms provide an additional tool that administrators and teachers can use for discipline by providing students with rewards of “uniform-free” days for good behaviour,” (Gentile 3) an ingenious approach to further discipline students. Second, uniforms affect a student’s sense of self, a person’s view of himself/herself. They affect a student’s self-esteem and consequently their educational performance. Role theory is a hypothesis on how uniforms help students are able to better internalize their identity as a student: “Role theory is related to the use of appearance in the pattern of attitudes and actions taken by an individual in social situations (Mead, 1934; Sarbin, 1954). The specific role that a person plays at any given moment depends upon the situation and upon the person’s self-concept.
Not having a say in whether you agree or disagree with the scenario just seems inhumane. In Gallagher’s PowerPoint it sates, “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood” (GP 85). Being a cultural relativist contradicts this statement. They technically aren’t free because they voice their own opinion.
Race is an issue. Our culture tries to pretend that it’s not, but our minds can’t help but compare the people with the stereotypes. It’s easy to identify yourself based on your race, but it’s even easier to pre-judge others. Our race has nothing to do with potential, with success or with what a person is capable of. What can we do to fix this injustice is to raise awareness and give people knowledge that we shouldn 't judge people based on their race.
The thought is noble so as the actions. Therefore adoption should not be done in the same race and culture, rather it should be done between all types of race and cultures. This type of adoption is termed as Interracial or Transracial adoption. In my opinion, people should be open to adopting any type of children, irrespective of race and culture. There are no boundaries of human race.
I believe that having an education enables you to obtain knowledge to be successful and have economic worth. “The power of education extends beyond the development of skills we need for economic success. It can contribute to nation-building and reconciliation.” Knowledge is power and with that knowledge you will not have the determination and ability to know how to fight for your rights and use what has been established before us. “The Fourteenth Amendment guarantees all citizens equal protection under the law, and the Fifteenth Amendment prohibits denying men the right to vote based on their
She discusses how students' academics, health, and economic contributions are affected by the unreachable standards society sets for them and that we have to be the ones to turn it around. Ramsey provides the audience with ideas on how to make a difference for the generations to come, like to educate on body confidence, to be better role models, and to work together to change the culture. It is on us, the current generations, to start making changes now so that the generations to come will be happy and confident in
In today’s culture, people fight for equality but use the definition of sameness. Sameness for a society means that each person is the exact same; no individual is superior or inferior to another. Equality for a society means that each person is given the equal opportunities to do what they desire. This opportunity does not guarantee that people will pursue those desires, but the opportunity stays available for them. An example to differentiate sameness and equality are the historic cities of Athens and Sparta.
Taylor Hayes M8 Discussion Discrimination in Latin America Discussion The eradication of discriminatory practices can only be achieved if each, and every person in the world is educated identically, if everyone has the same personal experiences, and basically if the entire world would have no diversity. Seeing how that is impossible, discrimination will always exist. However, discrimination can be largely decreased with education that educates about traditions and cultures rather than belittle them. As education increases, people will become more open-minded, and more inclined to embrace differences rather than begrudge
Name: Haslinda Bte Ismail (G1318084) Course: EDF 6606 Philosophy in Education for Thinking Date: 11 December 2014 Modern societies tend to consider discrimination on the basis of race, religion, and gender to be morally wrong. What reasons can you give for regarding such discrimination as wrong? Should members of the group that have been discriminated against be given preference in jobs and other opportunities to compensate for past discrimination? People should not be discriminated against based on religion, race or gender because of the concept of human liberty and freedom. Everyone is born free.
A nation based on freedom and justice for all. A country that doesn’t judge on race, gender, or religious views. We are a nation that was made with the idea that all men are created equal. However, we still struggle to live up to that idea to this day. We will solve this by increasing cultural proficiency in education.
This will also integrate the way that people interact with each other, since education will disable any form of ignorant rants, accuses, and bigotry and prejudice which has enable discrimination to exist. The more that people are well educated, the less that discrimination will exist, and thus the decrease in social injustice will prevail. “A community is democratic only when the humblest and weakest person can enjoy the highest civil, economic, and social rights that the biggest and most powerful possesses” (Randolph, on Gates and Burton, 436) and a democratic community can only be attained if people are educated enough on why freedom is a birthright of all people, and that equality is the best manifestation of freedom. The way that the system tends to use ignorance as a way to dismantle any form of justification on why discrimination is a social injustice shows that the intelligent people are using and abusing their intellect wrongly. By making the general masses educated on the reasons and
College begins another chapter in every person 's life, not only to pursue a higher degree of education, but to also expand our knowledge and amplify an individual perspective in life. Philosophy is a course that would be fascinating to learn more about knowing the only similarity we all have in common is simply being human, but the way we think is unlike based on aspects such as race, culture, gender and many others. In order to elicit interest in others an open discussion should be presented to see how divided the class would be on one topic or thinking process supported by the individual 's point of view. The best way to make the most of this class would be to conduct an interviews with a variety of people to understand what ideas
She wants to promote someone of racial or ethnic minority. However, it is illegal and unethical to promote based on race or ethical background. According to Malcom Sargeant, the principle of equal treatment means that there shall be no direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of race or ethnic origin (Sargeant, 2013). A promotion should be based on performance, not race, age, sex, or ethnicity. Shania should evaluate each employee and promote the person which meets or succeeds her expectations as a supervisor.
