  • Chapter 5: Race and Ethnic Variations
  • Race and Ethnicity
    • Race is a socially constructed classification system that assumes that physical differences represent genetic, biological, and psychological capabilities and predispositions.
    • Ethnicity refers to people from different cultural backgrounds.
  • National Institute of Health Racial/Ethnic classification
    • Ethnic Categories:
      • Hispanic or Latino: A person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race. The term “Spanish origin” can also be used in addition to “Hispanic or Latino.”
      • Not Hispanic or Latino
    • Racial Categories:
      • American Indian or Alaska Native: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North, Central, or South America, and who maintains tribal affiliations or community attachment.
      • Asian: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent including, for example, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam. (Note: Individuals from the Philippine Islands have been recorded as Pacific Islanders in previous data collection strategies.)
      • Black or African American: A person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa. Terms such as “Haitian” or “Negro” can be used in addition to “Black or African American.”
      • Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Hawaii, Guam, Samoa, or other Pacific Islands.
      • White: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.
  • Historical Context
    • Cultural themes that distinguish minority from dominant race/ethnic groups in the US:
    • 1. Collectivism/communalism (vs. Individualism)
    • 2. Familism
    • 3. Patriachy
  • Assimilation and Acculturation
    • For minority groups in the U.S.:
    • Assimilation —integration into existing systems of social relationships.
    • Acculturation —adoption of dominant cultural values.
    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBRDoXqqLO4
  • What does acculturation mean at the individual level? Integrated/Bicultural (Stew) Separated/Segregated (“Barrio”) Marginalized (Invisible) Assimilated (Melting Pot) Majority Minority
  • Ecological Conditions
    • Race and ethnic differences may be the result of ecological conditions brought about by prior historical experience. These include:
      • Social class
      • Prejudice
      • Discrimination
      • Segregation
  • Percent of Population with a Bachelor’s Degree or Higher by Hispanic Origin: 2000 Percent (Population 25 years and over) Source: Current Population Survey, March 2000, PGP-4

    • Understood Within a Particular Social and Historical Context
  • Historical Transitions Affecting African American Families
    • From Africa to the United States
    • From Slavery to Emancipation
    • From Rural/Southern to Urban/Northern Areas
  • From Africa to the U.S.
    • The three relevant factors in this transition are:
      • Color –Skin tone has always had significant effects on educational attainment, occupation, and income.
      • Cultural Discontinuity –Culture disrupted by slavery and social conditions in the U.S.
      • Slavery –African Americans did not choose to come here.
  • From Slavery to Emancipation
    • The Emancipation Proclamation and the end of slavery resulted in three patterns of family life:
      • Tenant farmers;
      • Skilled laborers; and
      • Disrupted families.
  • From the Rural South to the Urban North
    • This geographic shift resulted in:
      • Metropolitan/urban residence
      • Heavy concentrations of poverty
      • Disruption of nuclear families
      • Geographic separation from extended families
      • Increased access to schools, social services, and medical facilities
