- Interracial Relationships - 1,581 words
Interracial Relationships African Americans and whites in the United States have witnessed a large amount of social and cultural desegregation of. Through years of desegregation, however, social and cultural differences still exist. They exist in the institution of marriage. Americans have been and are continually moving slowly away from segregation. "In the past forty years, laws have transformed schools, jobs, voting booths, neighborhoods, hotels, restaurants and even the wedding altar" (Ties that Bind). Since the 1960's, when housing discrimination was outlawed, many African Americans moved into predominately white neighborhoods. The steadily growing areas in the west and southwest are le ...

- Antigone - 417 words
Antigone The Significance of Historical Setting Desirees Baby, by Kate Chopin, is not only a story about a mother and her child, but one of hatred and prejudices during the time in which they lived. Armand Aubigny, not knowing the origin of Desiree, fell madly in love with her as quick as a pistol shot. They were married immediately and soon after Desiree gave birth to a baby. Unfortunately, as the baby grew older, a particular feature stood out which changed the attitude of Armand towards Desiree and the baby. Armand decided, almost as quickly as he fell in love, that he no longer loved Desiree and their baby due to a racial barrier. The story is set in the 1800s when colonization in Americ ...

- Changes Of Time: The Stereotypical Images Of Blacks On Television - 1,810 words
Changes of Time: The Stereotypical Images of Blacks on Television Ever since television began in 1939, African Americans have been portrayed as maids, servants or clowns. These negative perceptions started to appear in sitcoms such as in Amos and Andy, who were the stereotypical backs who never took things seriously. All those views changed during the 1970s when black sitcoms were becoming more reality based. Although blacks have been, and often still, portrayed in a negative way on TV, there has been some improvement of stereotypical images of African Americans on television. There were five stereotypical roles of blacks between 1940-1970; the Tom, Coon, Mammie, Tragic Mulatto, and the Buck ...

- David Walkers Appeals - 783 words
David Walker's Appeals David Walker's Appeals As I read David Walker's Appeals, I notice this final edition was published by Black Classic Press. Webster's dictionary defines a classic as having lasting significance or worth; enduring. Under these terms, I would have to disagree. Despite great efforts of both the North and South to stop its publication, David Walker's Appeal became one of the most widely read and circulated books ever written by a black person. Walker was considered a hero by most abolitionists, who considered his book the boldest attack ever written against slavery. It had significant effects on race relations in 1829 America. However, as we enter the 21st century, David Wa ...

None provided Kristin McOlvin Commentary While reading the September 1999 issue of Social Work: Journal of the National Association of Social Workers, I came across an article entitled Symbolic Interactionism, African American Families and the Transracial Adoption Controversy. It was written by Leslie Doty Hollingsworth PhD, the assistant professor in the school of social work at the University of Michigan. The article claims that by using symbolic interactionism, it can be seen that African Americans are a unique and distinct cultural group and therefore adoption of African American children by families of a different race should only be allowed as an absolute last resort. I object strongly ...

- Race, Class And Gender - 1,030 words
... . In "The Social Construction of Gender" I like the author's description of discrimination through athletics. How male sport teams were called "lions" and meant to appear strong and women's sports teams were the kittens. Kittens beings a more sensual and passive name. Never observing this before and found it interesting. I agreed with the all authors on the way to assist in changing the norms of society. Unfortunately, norms have lasted so long and there are many outside factors. If we as a society teach our children to respect, love, and treat equally everyone they encounter, what is to say that this will change everyone perceptions? The article "Aw, Ya Throw Like a Girl" (Messner, 1992 ...

Rebecca Quietmeyer "Sincerely and earnestly hoping that this little book may do something toward throwing light on the American slave system, and hastening the glad day of deliverance to the millions of my brethren in bonds...relying upon the power of truth, love, and justice, for success in my...efforts and solemnly pledging myself anew to the sacred cause, I subscribe myself." (76) With these words, Frederick Douglass ended one of the greatest pieces of propaganda of the 19th century. Douglass wrote his autobiography as an abolitionist tool to shape his northern audiences view of southern slaveholders. Through personal anecdotes, Douglass drew an accurate picture of the life of a slave. At ...

- Serial Killers: Programmed To Kill - 1,799 words
Serial Killers: Programmed To Kill? Serial killers are one of the most fascinating and morbid groups of people to study. A serial killer as defined by Brian and Wilfred Gregg in The Encyclopedia of Serial Killers is someone who kills 3 or more people with sufficient time intervals between each known as a cooling off period. The style and motivation of the killings can vary greatly. I choose serial killers for this project because the idea of someone killing another human being on numerous occasions seemed so out there, so fringe, it just had to be studied. Listen to this letter from one of this centuries most infamous serial killers David Berkowitz (1976-1977) AKA Son of Sam. "I am deeply hu ...

- The Benetton Group - 1,028 words
The Benetton Group The Benetton Group The Controversy Continues Problem Identification Benetton, the world famous clothing producer, once again dives into social issues that the United States may not be ready for. The Italy based group is well known for their shocking world issue advertisements that only bear the company logo. In fact, Benettons advertisements traditionally do not feature the clothes it sells; only the issues play the lead role. After years of controversy over ads such as AIDS, war, interracial relationships, and priests kissing nuns, it may be time for Benetton to campaign about something other than controversial social issues, like clothes. On January 1, 2000, Benettons ne ...
