Nazi Racism points out that, “In his speeches and writings, Hitler spread his beliefs in racial "purity" and in the superiority of the "Germanic race"—what he called an Aryan "master race." He pronounced that his race must remain pure in order to one day take over the world. For Hitler, the ideal "Aryan" was blond, blue-eyed, and tall” (Nazi Racism). In order to carry out his vision of the perfect race, Hitler created breeding facilities where Aryan women were impregnated by military soldiers. To make sure his vision was not compromised, Hitler forcible sterilized over one-hundred thousand people who were deemed inferior to the Aryan race. The Nazi party abused their political power by taking totalitarian control over Germany. The society reflected the views of the government as it normalized the maltreatment directed towards Jewish people. The government restricted Jewish freedom and stripped them of their civil liberties. Nazi Germany enacted laws that would forcible put Jewish people in
Race and ethnicity Race and ethnicity are the occasionally have been used interchangeably. Race is described as a person’s physical appearance such as skin color, eye color, hair and many other biological traits and characteristics. Race mainly refers to the differences in skin color in the contemporary world. When we say that person is fair skinned or is black we are referring to the race of that person. Ethnicity is the cultural aspect of a an individual or a group such as the nationality of the person, the language they use to communicate, their descendants , the particular region they inhabit for example American, African, African Americans, etc. In a nutshell race is an overview of how you look and ethnicity is the social and cultural aspect of grouping you are born into.
To begin, there were many political laws implemented against Jews. In the earlier years of World War II, the Nazis declared their goal to segregate Jews from the “Aryan” society.
“The History, Development and Future of Ethnic Studies” by Evelyn Hu-DeHart mentions several issues young scholars faced during the time of need for multicultural curriculum in higher education. Young scholars were demanding to uncover the missing facts and accredited sources that American history, culture, and society have left out for centuries. The solution the students concluded in solving this dilemma was to bring attention to the need of ethnic studies programs. With enough support from the student body and willingness of universities, institutions were able to recruit professors and thus create ethnic studies programs. According to Hu-DeHart, by providing ethnic studies programs and departments, the academic field would provide, “…a
One of Hitler’s many ambitions for Germany was to achieve total Aryan supremacy. Hitler wanted to make all Germans perfect physical specimens. All of them tall and strong with blue eyes and blond hair though he himself was short, with brown eyes and hair. Hitler claimed that the Germans were the purest Aryans and therefore superior to all other peoples. Hitler made sure that all Germans knew this, he told the German people what they wanted to hear, that they were in fact the master race and that they were superior to any other persons. Although many were opposed to Hitler’s idea of Aryan supremacy the German people supported him enthusiastically regardless.
Aryan Nations, the Anti-Semitism Group Imagine being haunted with the cruel remarks about something you could never change about yourself. You don’t necessarily like that feeling, or the people who say that, right? The Aryan Nations were people who could make you feel this way; they primarily and harmfully attacked blacks and Jews, followed Hitler, made church leagues, and often committed crimes.
Dehumanization During The Holocaust During the holocaust, the germans saw the jews as a “tainted race”, and saw them inferior to themselves. They also sought to kill off the jewish bloodline completely. The germans conducted inhumane forms of torture towards the jews, such as separation from their families and killing of family
Caramel, mocha, chocolate, dark chocolate, butterscotch, brownie, honey. Terms of endearment for the Black race can sound so inviting and sensually stimulating; why then, was I not welcomed with a loving embrace into my own community? An understated problem within the Black community today is that of internalized racism. Should a Black person stray from the status quo and main stream perception of American citizens from African descent as having violent-tendencies and being intemperate, then we are marginalized, and what is worse, we marginalize one another. I have first-hand experience with such marginalization from my peers. I have spent the preponderance of my academic career in a predominantly white community, which has greatly swayed my

In the U.S., the term “race” has different connotation compared to other countries like Brazil. As the book Culture defines it- in Chapter 11: Ethnicity and Race- a race is nothing more than a biologically related ethnic group. Often, the tendency of North American society to rely on hypodescent, leads to stress and lack of self-identity. As a matter of fact, the book describes hypodescent as the arbitrary classification of interracial children as a member of the least privileged ethnic group to which either of their parents corresponds. Besides, in today’s world U.S. population has become increasing diversified. Diversity has led to racial tension between different groups. Latinos is one general term given to people who speak a Latin-derived language (this includes South American
The Nazi used a term called the “Master Race” or the Aryan Race. It was basically a racial term describing an idea of a pure race. The Nazis believed in a concept that Aryans had the most pure blood on the earth.
Black Nationalism was a more radical solution to the civil rights issues plaguing the United States in the 50’s and 60’s. Malcom X was a Muslim minister that was one of the key leaders in the Black Nationalist movement. He believed the African Americans should develop their own society and ethical values, and separate completely from white Americans. He stressed that African Americans should be running their own communities, which involved owning their own stores and local governments. He believed that white Americans dominated local economies by owing the stores and running city governments. Martin Luther King Jr. would avoid violence at all cost, but Malcolm X said “be violent when the enemy is violent.” In my opinion this view of violence
Many of us have different ideas of when talking about culture. We define culture as one's behavior and beliefs that distinguish us between one group to another. Culture has been around for many centuries, modern human culture would have been differentiated with language, tools and weapons. The different genetic makeup for the population would also reflect the major differentiation in culture between the related groups. I believe culture started because of population growing and people trying to relate with one another with their own common lifestyles.
