There exists in our community a monster, a monster as old as mankind itself. This monster is known by many names; some call it racism, others discrimination but the only thing certain about this monstrosity is that it can be overcome if we all unite to fight against it. Racism is “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race” (Merriam Webster). Racism has multiple causes ranging from living in a secluded community, to the basic instincts of mankind which likes exemplify the differences found in others not like themselves. Racism can destroy the foundations on which a community is laid upon and can intrude upon the peace and sanction of many of its members. By informing members of the community on the reasons why racism continues to persist, encouraging acceptance and providing further education on how to relieve racial tensions, we can resolve the issue of racism once and for all.
Every day an extensive amount of people have to face hatred and bullying. Huge conflicts occur and lives are lost. The issue that plays a significant part in all of this is racism. It affects individuals and communities in every corner of the world.
Identify the main culturally and linguistically division (CALD) communities that are represented in Blacktown. Identify types of groups these are and propose the main reasons for the formation.
I know a grew up a certain way but I didn't want to be that way no more. Why would I hate someone if they did nothing to me I have no reason to hate them or even discriminate them. Why would we want to separate ourselves from them because of their skin color because they look different because they don't look like the rest of us
“You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.” - Malcolm X. During the 2016 Presidential Election there were many forms of cultural division, for a time when the nation was torn apart, the election did not help. Throughout the United States they are multiple examples of cultural division from the mosque burning, to the proposal of mass deportation, to the lynching of Frederick Jermaine Carter and Lennon Lacy. All of these show that there is a rift between society in America. Cultural division is prevalent in the United States and is revealed through many factors such as racism, immigration, and religion.
The primary need on our campus is a diversity program. With the opening of another middle school campus this year, our campus has gone from being one of the largest and more diverse campuses in the district to being one the smallest and least diverse in the district. A diversity program will allow the minorities on campus to share their culture in order to build a community that understands we are all more alike than different. Currently this need is not impacting the achievement of students on campus, however, if not address I feel that ultimately this could become an issue that may allow students to feel uncomfortable and create dissention. By partnering with parents and members of the community, I think a program could be developed that allows every culture the opportunity to shine.
First of all, I feel like the community as a whole should not act out in anger. Although people may not agree with each other’s beliefs we shouldn’t use violence to react to it. In order to have equality and peace in our society, we should learn to be kind, treat others the way we wish they would treat us and not judge each other due to the past and things that have already occurred and cannot be changed. Globally, I feel like racism will always be a present issue but what truly matters is how the issue is handled. As long as race exists, racism will come along with it. However, if we act with kindness and learn to live together peacefully, equality can be achieved, worldwide. It is not easy, but it is
So what action can be taken to solve this issue? Hate and racism are learned behaviors. Children are not born with hate; therefore, if they can be taught to hate, can they not also be taught to tolerate? Undoubtedly, this is a task that is easier said that done. This however, could possible if tolerance is taught early on. Schools in communities could implement new curriculum designed to support equality and purge stereotypes. Gripping our nation once again with full force, racism will only continue to grow worse if a course of action is promptly acted upon for our youth.
Community isolation is a cultural safety issue as ASTI are faced with discrimination, racism and generation of trauma due to living away from there tribe or their family in other parts of the community. Low levels of trust from the ASTI towards the community as of generation of discrimination, racism, this can cause anxiety and feelings of disempowerment and disorganization and they don’t know or have lost how to communicate with other that are not in the family structure or society.
So how can this problem be handled? How can this precarious, disputed issue be solved if not with enforcing laws or re-education? The biggest, most crucial factor in taking steps to absolve racism and stereotypes from today’s society is being able change attitudes. The ideals of a racist or bigoted intellect can be dissolved if somehow shown the error in their morals, and the meaning of admission. The workings of the solecistic conscious must be altered in order to begin repairing all such perspectives have damaged. Any hope of inequality or segregation must be removed, pulled from thought. Acceptance and love must be understood, if the world can unite themselves in peace.
Please keep in mind that I do not have a textbook and I’m trying to improvise without one. I am not aware of any specific immigrant and refugee groups within my community, however per the latest census, my township is nearly 75% white and approximately 22% African American and less than 4% from other ethnic backgrounds
Firstly, individuals are racists against each other. People have stereotyped against each other from the very early civilization until the present day. They discriminate against looks, race, beliefs, actions and may even do it because a group of people they associate with are doing it. The reasons why people discriminate against each other are infinite; insecurity, misinformation, upbringing and lack of empathy are just a few reasons. Doris Lessing advises, “People…may agree that the hardest thing in the
Living in a diverse community as a new immigrant, speaking Chinese is the only thing I felt at home. Surprisingly, starting from my freshman year, many classmate talked to me in Chinese to practice their speaking, which made me realized Chinese has became a connection between me and the new environment. By this notion, I started to assist my Chinese teacher with providing additional help for the students, such as improving pronunciation, recognizing Chinese characters, and learning verb tense. I felt fulfilled when my classmates showed improvements by talking to me with fluent Chinese because it proved that my influence of Chinese has engraved in this diverse community. The experience in teaching not only inspired me to help people, but it
The primary cause of the problem faced by officials and citizens is that ethical matters are not clear to the citizens. Most people abide by the ethnic issues in a succession of generations. Although many people do not understand the ethnic concerns and issues they would obey them fully. The misunderstanding of the racial issues poses a significant problem to the officials. If the ethnic issues were made clearer, the chances are that there would be no problem for counsels and officials in handling critical ethnic issues. The construction of policy proposals would become a grave concern in regions where communities maintain complicated ethical considerations. The construction of important ideas in the regions dominated by strong ethical beliefs
It is not difficult to imagine oneself being misunderstood when immersed in a new culture. Intercultural conflict is bound to occur when two people from different cultures interact because each culture has unique values. Therefore, when an American and an Italian American become friends, it is likely that their different cultures will cause conflict. The key to solving this conflict will be sympathizing with one another. Throughout this paper, a conflict regarding unalike views on the meaning of ‘on time’ will be described, explained, and solved.
