The idea of race and gender is an idea that has been socially constructed. Society has created roles for race and gender, they are determined by what society thinks is appropriate for the gender or race. Some people argue that certain behavior roles are based on gender where as others may believe that it is based on race. I will first discuss how in today’s society we promote to stop racism yet it is still happening everyday, and people are just blind to see it. Creating a role for race is racism, some people do not understand that. I will then talk about gender, how it is socially constructed, and labeling “roles” for men and women. I will also discuss how race and gender intersect in the formation of identities. How gender and race is socially constructed, us people have the power to change it but we use our power to look past it and pretend like it does not exist. Majority of society has been blinded to the fact gender and racial roles do not exist, society has created it and now we think it is the norm.

Race, gender and class defines our experience. Studies have shown that, even though, these three aspects define who we are, they are interwoven. Each of these three aspects affects our decisions which could be either positive or negative.

When registering for classes for the Spring semester I looked at the required courses that I had to take based on my major. I then came across one of them which was Social Issues. The title intrigued me, so I decided to fit it into my schedule. I felt that the course would be interesting and be an enjoyable class to take. I had an idea of what the course would be about, but when I walked into the first class I was surprised how much the course would actually be covering in terms of race, class, and gender.
Race, gender, and social class has several implications in the United States and how it shapes policy and perceptions of those who live in poverty. Current welfare systems are not perfect, and capitalistic policies do not work as intended to solve income inequalities. Given this, we will discuss social inequalities and capitalism, the welfare system, and propose two policies that solves welfare, and social and income inequalities.
Immigration has been a central theme in the development of the United States. The influx of foreigners into the country has been met with acceptance and restrictive policy since its formation. The reaction to diverse immigration created exclusionary policies first introduced in the late nineteenth century and held
Beginning with the ones who established the first successful permanent settlement in 1607. The U.S is a magnet for those looking to increase their economic prospects regardless of their roots. Immigration has shaped the demography of Americans since colonial times. Immigration is an important issue the country faces today; misunderstandings persist about essential aspects of this crucial topic such as the size and composition of the immigrant population, and how immigration affects the economy and the workforce in the U.S.
Immigration has modernized America’s workforce, economy, society and culture. Each group of newcomers brings optimism, hope and determination in pursuing the American Dream. Each group makes America more diverse and stronger. Immigrants are people who come from another country and move to a new one. An illegal or undocumented immigrant is a foreigner who enters or lives in a country unlawfully or without the countries authorization. In the US, immigrants are people who risk their lives to make the journey to America in search of a better life and future. Those who came to America between 1892 and 1954 had to go through Ellis Island. Ellis island helped more than 12 million people become immigrants and more than 40 percent of current US citizens can trace at least one of their ancestors back to Ellis Island (History1). People came for different reasons and in the 1910s many “Jews escaping from political and economic oppression in czarist Russia and eastern Europe and Italians escaping poverty in their country”(History1), came to the US in search of a better life. They left their homes for many reasons including “war, drought, famine and religious persecution, and all had hopes for greater opportunity in the New World”(History1). My family came through Ellis Island and endured the long journey by boat across the Atlantic along with millions of other people and their families too. I have a few friends who are abiding in America on visas and had to make the journey to
Thus far the discussions of how race, culture, and socioeconomic status plays a role in education has been a very enlightened one. Up until now I really have never thought about how many things play a part in the education a child receives and how a teacher’s career is also impacted. Like many others I assume, education is something that we all receive and never think about it in great detail. For me going to school each day was just a routine and the end goal was to graduate high school and go onto college, always thinking that it was that easy for all others. Not until now have I discovered that it is not that easy and that there are many obstacles in the way of a good education.
Chapter One: Introduction to Investigation Immigration to North American nations has been a staple process for countries like the United States and Canada. Without immigrants, these two nations would not have become as large and successful as they are today. However, easy and encouraged immigration has not always been a constant for these two countries. Throughout the centuries, there have been issues and disputes over immigration for particular ethnicities and groups of people which continue even to this day. One example being the current dispute on Mexican immigrants residing or entering the United States and whether it requires heavier government intervention. A similar problem beginning almost two centuries ago has already occurred in both the US and Canada, and was resolved in extreme manners similar to some of those proposed American politicians. As following a popular quote by George Santayana, “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it,” by examining past events similar to those seen today, those involved in the issue can make better judgements based on what has and has not worked in the past.
