The Cultural History Behind Racial Science
"Race" is a fictional notion fashioned by debunked scientists in order to justify their cruelties and
enhance their perceived superiority. Just as religion was once used to justify the horrors of the
Crusades (Lindqvist, pg. 161), science would be the means to pardon the brutalities of imperialism,
manifest destiny, and the white man's burden. Constrained by binary thinking, Western thought
pinned the illusory "civilized" against the "primitive" using metaphors attached to scientific
reasoning (Stepan, pg. 362). Because of Africans' supposed likeness to apes, they were not fully
human; skull measurements, despite being inaccurate, were used to rank the races of Mongoloid,
Negro, and Caucasian (Gould, pg. 103). Through some omissions and statistical finagling,
Caucasians wound up with the highest cranial capacities. Consequently, small and ape–like became
synonyms for inferior and stupid. In this paper, I will draw upon our class readings to explicate the
cultural history behind racial science, and how science artificially constructed race by ignoring
outliers and probing for racial differences.
Science was born deeply intertwined within the Western cultural realm. It developed snuggly with
ideas of European grandeur through the "grace and favor of Almighty God" (Lindqvist, pg.11). "The
cultural conditioning these [scientists] had absorbed early in their careers influenced more than their
writing: it skewed their research (Freedman). Coinciding with scientific inquiries of

African Americans And The Caucasian Race
Do African Americans as a people have equal rights as those of the Caucasian race? Are we not
under the same Constitution and Judicial system? Some would argue yes and some would argue no.
What side are you on? Why is it that so many race crimes have occurred against African Americans
in the past seven years and the race of the person committing the crime is of the Caucasian race? Is
it that racism still exists? In the free world we live in we are still in bondage to the never ending
struggle of racism. Racism as a whole leads to segregation and the improper use of laws. Again why
are we facing these struggles following a document that was claimed to "forever free" slaves? The

It exists everywhere and is prevalent in our daily lives without even fully being aware of it. How
many times do you drive in a bad neighborhood or are in your car at night and lock your door when
you see a guy or group of guys walk pass? How many times is the guy or group of guys of the
African American race? We live in a world that socially and economically puts labels on people
because of the color of their skin, geographic location and demographic, and the way they dress and
how they speak. This is evident in every single part of the nation we live in. For example, I am from
Columbus, Ohio and I went to a small private school in the suburbs that was predominately black. I
have participated in games against other schools in our league and in other counties of my state,
where we were called "niggers" by players and even parents throughout competition. Imagine in
some cases being called that by even the sporting officials, and even further if they do not physically
say it they have the ability to make games harder on you and give you unfair penalties. Majority of

was no going to the referees and you could not get upset and act out of character because then you

From Deep Woods And Civilization By Charles Eastman
In "From Deep Woods to Civilization", Charles Eastman tells his life story about his culture and
how he led his life. As an Indian, Charles Eastman battled with trying to identify with his culture.
Charles Eastman decided that he wanted more out of life as it relates to an education, so he went
back to school. He wanted to educate the people and his culture by changing the world's views of
American Indians. Charles Eastman discussed the Indian lifestyle, economic exchange, and religious
views compared to the white society. He believed that white culture is superior to Indian Culture.
There was concern about the survival of American–Indian.
Charles Eastman was an Indian of the Sioux Tribe and he was confused about who he was. If it
wasn't for his family history, everyone would have different views about Charles identity. Charles'
father wants him to leave the tribe, go out and view the world, otherwise his grandmother thinks he
should stay and help the tribe. For Eastman to leave the tribe, he believes this is a way for him to
show the upper and middle–class White Culture his values, integrity, his manhood, and the
stereotypes of other Natives. Charles wants his male culture and Caucasian males to become equal
as well as gain full citizenship with one another. The Natives must overcome racism with the
Caucasian population. If they want to achieve white racism or if they wanted to achieve full equality
within the U.S. Society there are steps that must be taken.

The Caucasian Chalk Circle
In The Caucasian Chalk Circle, Brecht combined the theme of motherhood with revolutionary ideas
about theatre.' Discuss.
Bertolt Brecht's play The Caucasian Chalk Circle is a social and political commentary, focusing on
justice and motherhood. Using revolutionary theatrical techniques and devices to reinforce his
theme, Brecht attempts to free his audience from the constraints of traditional theatre, enabling them
to make impartial judgments of their own. Despite combining these radical ideas about theatre with
the theme of motherhood, Brecht does not wholly succeed in alienating the audience, as it is
impossible for them to totally distance themselves from such an emotive subject as motherhood.
A German poet, playwright, and ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
In the play, Brecht explores social alternatives as the audience is presented with various types of
mothers. Grusha represents all that a 'good' mother should be. She continues to care for Michael,
even after she is advised to leave the child behind. She is forced to flee the city in order to protect
him from the ironshirts. She pays two piasters, equivalent to a week's wages, so that he can have
milk. She does not abandon him when the ironshirts catch up with them but hits one over the head
with a piece of wood, allowing them to escape. Grusha is forced to make many self–sacrifices in
order to save Michael. She does so financially, emotionally, in terms of her promise to Simon, and in
terms of her life. When her brother Lavrenti insists that she must marry Jussup in order to make
Michael a 'legitimate child', she agrees, thus breaking her engagement promise to Simon. When she
is confronted by the Ironshirts and must choose between claiming Michael as her child and losing
Simon, or disclaiming Michael and regaining Simon's love and respect, She chooses Michael. In
doing so, she sacrifices her future happiness with Simon. Grusha gives up everything that is
important in her life in order to keep Michael safe. Brecht's depiction of Grusha contrasts
enormously with the other representations of mothers in the text. In the first act, Michael's natural
mother Natella is portrayed as jealous of her own son, "But Georgi, of course, will only

Dr. Martin Luther King
Dr. Martin Luther King is a very passionate, motivating and an inspiring speaker. His "I Have a
Dream" is a perfect example of pathos. His speech had so much passions that it filled the audience
with so much emotions. Even though there is a strong presence of pathos, than logo and ethos. They
are very much present in his speech.
On August 28, 1963, on a Washington DC street filled with over 250,000 demonstrators [black and
white, young and old] came together to witness Dr. Martin Luther King speaks about the unhuman
treatment of the colored people in America, and to appeal for an end to the discrimination and
Segregation in the United States. This peaceful gathering is now regarded as one of the pivotal point
in the civil right movement in America.
At a time where colored people were viewed as lesser race to the white race in America, Dr. Martin
Luther King's speech was expected to rally the races together. The civil right movement can easily
be viewed as a war between African–Americans and Caucasians Americans, but it reality many
other races were involved, like: Hispanic and Americans, Asian Americans were also discriminated
and surrogated from the Caucasian population. The cruel and merciless white police officers would

Analysis Of The Book ' Ceremony '
In the book titled Ceremony, Tayo faced several cultural difficulties that led him to realize his
cultural identity and beliefs. In the end, these elements assisted him in completing his new ceremony
that healed his post–traumatic stress disorder.
The first challenge he faced was being a mixed blood composing of half Indian and half Caucasian.
For example, Tayo dealt with prejudice from his Auntie and his acquaintance Emo. When Tayo was
young his Auntie kept him and his cousin Rocky separated due to the shameful act of her sister
Laura, who was Tayo's mother. Laura fornicated with a White man and gave birth to Tayo, who was
a mixed blood, which his Auntie felt was a disgraceful act to her family's cultural tradition. As for
Emo, he despised Tayo ever since grade school due to Tayo being half White. Emo had a prejudiced
view on Caucasians due to his view that White people had everything, including the land they took
from the Indian people, while his Indian people were left with nothing. The next challenge that he
discovers was the difficulties in being trapped in the middle of two different cultures. His Indian
belief of worshiping the nature spirits differed greatly from the White culture in school and in the
military, which gave scientific reasoning and claimed that the Indian belief was based on
superstitions. Native American culture worships animals, plants, the sun, rain, and wind due to their
beliefs and the explanations they learned from their ancestors.

Literature Review : Hiring Managers Are Hiring Caucasians...
LITERATURE REVIEW
Hypothesis 1: Hiring managers are hiring Caucasians for Senior Level Executive positions over
minority applicants.
In America, cultural sounding names are prevalent. People attribute certain cultural names with
racial groups. For example, Lakisha Johnson and Jamal Wilson may be seen as names of African
Americans While Emily Adams and Connor Backham, may be seen as Caucasian names. Marianne
Bertrans and Sendhill Mullainathan conducted a study on race in the labor market by sending
fictitious resumes to help–wanted ads in Boston and Chicago newspapers. To manipulate perceived
race, resumes were randomly assigned African–American or White–sounding names before being
sent to jobs around the Boston and Chicago area. White names received 50 percent more callback
for interviews compared to the African–American names. They also found the racial gap to be
uniform across occupation, industry and employer size. In fact, Bertans and Mullainathan found
evidence that inferred social class from the names.
This study was particular interesting because it presented research as to how employers are using
prejudice attitudes when extending interviews. This study aids to our research because it shows how
hiring managers are denying cultural sounding names even before an interview. Despite their
qualified experience, skills or education, they are overlooked therefore more attention is giving
toward other applicants which could result in Caucasians being offered the

A Conversation about Race: A Documentary by Craig Bodeker...
A Conversation About Race is a documentary by Craig Bodeker. In the movie, Mr. Bodeker attempts
to debunk racism. The film centers on interviews of people in Denver, Colorado who answered a
Craigslist posting entitled "Ending Racism Now" as well as people interviewed on street corners
presumably at random. Mr. Bodeker presents clips of these interviews and provides narration.
According to Mr. Bodeker, the film's purpose is to expose the myth of racism and show how the
White race suffers from reverse racism and double standards (Dispatch Inc, 2013).
The film opens with a quote by Reverend Jeremiah Wright, "Racism is how this country was
founded and how this country is still run!...We [in the U.S.] believe in white supremacy and black ...

The question, "Are Blacks better at basketball than Whites?" is a stereotypical question and does not
prove Mr. Bodeker's claims in the least. Similarly, Mr. Bodeker claimed society cannot give credit to
the White race for its successes. Mr. Bodeker points out an area where Whites excel (standardized
testing). He further makes a point of saying the interviewees stated it had to be due to cultural bias,
as they could not give credit to Whites. It is a proven fact standardized testing is written in a cultural
bias manner. Therefore, the results of Whites scoring better is due to cultural bias not their ability to
test well. Again, this question does not support Mr. Bodeker's claims. In fact, Mr. Bodeker's
questions and the manner in which he framed them only serve to show how one–sided his film is.
Clearly, racism exists and is not a myth; history proves this statement. While Mr. Bodeker made
some valid statements, racism is a social construct, much of his assertions I found lacked merit.
Particularly Mr. Bodeker's assertions regarding rape and the statistical data he provided. "According
to the US Justice Department for the year 2005 in the USA black men raped or sexually assaulted
white women over 37,000 times; averaging 100 time per day..." (Dispatch Inc, 2013). While on its

Non Caucasian American Suicide
There is a dramatic difference between the suicide rates of Caucasians and Non– Caucasian
individuals. There are multiple reasons as to why that could be. One of the possible reasons for that
stems from how our very society has been formed. When looking at the history, specifically here in
the United States, we find that many Non–Caucasian groups of individuals have suffered at the
hands of Caucasians in some way shape or form. Through that suffering, there was something that
developed within those groups of people, resilience, strength, flexibility, and toughness. Non–

There was a drastic rise in the suicide rates among white males specifically. One did not see that
same rise in suicide rates among minorities. There has been plenty of speculation as to why that
could have been. One reason is that the one cannot lose money that they never had access too.
Although the Great Depression was bad for the country, it has a big effect on those with power in
society and that was white males who were not accustomed to not getting their way or having to live
without the money they lost and they could not handle it. A similar trend happened even as recent as
the Recession of 2008–2009 when there was a surge of suicide rates among white people. Even
though we have improved vastly as a society from the 1920s until now there was a similar pattern
we see. The United States is for the most part run by Caucasians so when we have an economic
decline it does not affect minorities as much as if effects majorities who are not used to living

The Harmful Myth Of Asian Superiority
Ronald Takaki point out how there is a big misconception with Asian Americans in today's society
in his article "The Harmful Myth of Asian Superiority." Stating, "Asian Americans have increasingly
come to be viewed as a 'model minority.'"(Takaki, 117) Although that is not the case at all, most
Asian Americans have to work hard to get to where they are. Moving up is not easy and not
something they do to be looked at as role models or as pricks that take everyone's jobs. They work
hard and get more education and a better paying job than everyone else because that's the only way
they are able to make a great living in a new country. Although many would like to point out how
they're income is higher than most Caucasians it is only because they live with many more people
that are able to contribute to that. Coming from a Hispanic background I could defiantly see where
many Americans of any other race other than Caucasians would see there is a misconception.
Coming from a different country or even being second generation one has to work a lot harder to get
where many Americans can get with just a snap of a finger. Like Takaki said, "While Japanese
American men in California earned and average income comparable to Caucasian men in 1980, they
did so only by acquiring more education and working more hours."(117) Immigrants in general have
to work two times harder to get the basic of what any Caucasian man or woman would get, and to
move past them it takes even more hard work.

Racial Differences Between Caucasian Ancestry And...
Section 114(2) goes on to state "...and the identification was made without the person who made it
having been intentionally influenced to identify the defendant." The NSW Commissioner for Police
published an applicable guideline for the Evidence Act, further clearing any ambiguities in particular
definitions. The correct procedure when conducting an identification parade is to use "six or more
people of similar age, height and appearance as the suspect." Eight men were present at the
identification parade, but five of them were not of Caucasian descent. This refutes the application
listed above; that the people in the parade must be of similar appearance to the suspect. If the
suspect's details were that he is of Caucasian background, the identification parade should present 6
or more people of Caucasian descent. Although there were eight people present in the line up, due to
the obvious racial differences from the suspect's description, the parade technically only had three
people from who Constable Mosman could choose. Furthermore, in the legal recording between the
accused and his brother, the accused states that the police officer that brought Constable Mosman in
to the parade was the same police officer that had interviewed him earlier. This point is an important
one, as it establishes a possible prejudice regarding identification. At this point, it can be concluded

In 1904, Theodore Roosevelt appointed the President's Commission on Naturalization to gather
opinions from members of the court system and immigration experts regarding ways to reform

locale level, had been used by local groups to garner support for their political party. For instance, if
a judge suspected that the person applying for naturalization would vote in favour of the party he

practice soon came under scrutiny from both local newspapers and the federal government, which

Thind based his case on the Aryan theory of the Hindu caste system. The Aryans were a group of
invaders who were believed to have come to India around 1500 BCE. The Vedas are Hindu religious
texts that describe the caste system, placing the descents of the Aryan people, who were fair–
skinned and blue–eyed, at the highest levels of the system. As a high caste Hindu, Thind argued that
he shared common ancestry with European peoples and could therefore be considered "white". In

United States census has found that the average White person will live in a community that is

Prejudice By William Packer 's Brownie
Prejudice refers to an unfavourable opinion or judgment formed against a person without proper
assessment of a situation. It is an unreasonable or attitude that is hostile in nature with regards to an
individual, or a group on an ethnic, racial, or social basis. Prejudice is thus most prevalent in regions
where there are different groups and where one group is predominant over the other. As a result,
prejudice is a common theme in most literary works and ZZ Packer's Brownie, is one of the short
stories that extensively covers this theme. This essay looks at the theme of prejudice in Packer's
Brownie as exhibited by the story's characters including Arnetta, Janice, Laurel and her father.
In the story, the narrator, Laurel comes face to face with the complex nature of race relations, which
lead to her understanding of the human nature. In the course of their tour, there is high tension and
fears due to racism culminated by the plot by the brownies to revenge against a perceived slight. The
tension decreases when the troops come face to face with their misconception. Through the
experiences of the characters, Parker illustrates the extent to which racism is rampant in our society.
He shows how the society reinforces and perpetuates this vice. Through Laurel's first person

Celie being violated growing up does not enjoy intercourse even with her husband. She said "Mr.__
clam on top of me, do his business, in ten minutes us both asleep (Walker,p.66)." Similarly, many
females had there own views on men but mass women had a negative view. Miss Maudie stated her
view by this comment "all men lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men
are not to be trusted around our women (Lee, p.273)." Tom is a prime example that there was
injustice to Negros as well during this time. Coloured men had stereotypes and unfair accusations
against them from the white race. Tom was not a liar, nor immoral . Not all men were evil and
caustic. Celie growing up around atrocious men, has the same salient view as Miss Maudie on men.
Although there were many treatments of blacks that can be considered unjust, racism is the most
recognizable and alive oppression. This was exceedingly frequent in two novels. Racism is
inevitable, it has always been around. Racism has got better over time but it has not constantly been
like this. Both novels substantiate this and bring enlightenment back to how racism was in the 1930

Caucasian Culture In John Stockett's The Help
Throughout the novel, "The Help" the Caucasian culture is the dominant culture and has positive
and negative impacts on the plot, characters, and themes, but mostly negative impacts. Since, this
book take place during the 1960s, there was a lot of racism in the United States, and so African
Americans were inferior to Caucasians. The Caucasian culture has a negative effect on African
Americans due to the racism and separation, since this book took place in the 1960s, as mention
earlier. For example, all black maids within Aibileen's community would have to use their separate
bathroom since "they carry different kinds of diseases than we" (Stockett 10). This demonstrates that
there is a separation between the two cultures because the Caucasians ... Show more content on

Throughout the chapters in which Ms. Skeeter appears, the theme of social expectations is present.
For example, just like how black maids have their destiny in society, so do white people because
Ms. Skeeter believes she will "never be able to tell [her] mother [that she] wants to be a writer"
(Stockett 65). This clarifies that she is expected to be married and have babies by the time she is 22
years old. In addition, this states that white women are not suppose to have jobs and it is more of the
men's role to have a job and support their family. Another theme that is present throughout the first
seven chapters is that white children often form a devotion to their maids. Aibileen and Mae Mobley
share this relationship as well as Ms. Skeeter and Constantine because these black maids have been
taking care of theses white children since they were born, which can make black maids be looked
upon as a mother figure. Therefore, this trust between Ms. Skeeter and Constantine gave Ms.
Skeeter the ability "to have someone to keep secrets with" (Stockett 76). This explains that the
relationship between the two is too strong that is removes the ideology of African Americans being
not trust worthy and cruel individuals. Also, this relationship usually leads to a heartbreak for both
because for one, the maid be fired or went her own ways and the child will eventually grow up to
become a future employer. However, even though the bond is strong between the child and maid, the

Race And Crime Essay
Based on the chapters read in "Race & Crime" I believe that the disproportionality of minorities
stems from racism. The book gives a detailed account of early history. I'm embarrassed to say that I
didn't know much of the history as it relates to the Caucasians coming over here (pre Christopher
Columbus). If I were a racist or raised to be one, I'd have a lot of hate in my heart! Crime started
with the Caucasians as they stole the land, enslaved people, lied, cheated, murdered individuals, and
passed judgement on individuals (humans) who weren't like them.
This is something deeply rooted with in most; but not all Caucasians. I believe that they are afraid
that the other cultures will do to them (the Caucasians) what they did to others. Although America
has gotten a better racism still exists. The problem is because of the change for betterment some
don't want to acknowledge that racism still exists.
The media doesn't help either. Cases like Travon Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and so on,
help perpetrate hate and disgust for a race. Caucasians say "see I told you minorities were bad; the
other races say "see you can't trust white people or the police." Both are wrong. Injustice is wrong
no matter the color of the individuals skin.

Throughout the world, an ongoing pandemic is occurring, but has gone unnoticed by many.
However, while most people are unaffected by this, one group in particular is hit hard the most,
minorities. The problem at hand is not one of late, it has plagued civilizations since the beginning of
times, perhaps in different forms, but the idea has largely remained unchanged. According to
Merriam–Webster Dictionary, the definition of racism, or the idea in question is defined as, "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." A close analysis of the events that occurred on
April 9, 2014, reveal that racism continues to thrive in America's modern society.
In all cases similar to the occurrences in 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri, there is one correlation that

Civil Communication And Reconciliation Between America And...
Phillis Wheatley wrote, To the Right Honorable William, Earl of Dartmouth, to William Legge, a
British politician who sided with the American's wishes to repeal the Stamp Act, and refused to
personally wage war against them. This poem is often viewed as a poem dedicated to congratulating
and praising Legge for his amiable actions towards the American people. However, this idea is not
entirely true. Wheatley's poem isn't solely a poem of praise but a desperate woman's plea for help. In
the poem Wheatley employs tactics of sympathy, empath, and bribery to convince Legge to use his
influence to aid the African American race. It is important that we realize this poem is a cry for help
because not only do we overlook Wheatley's intelligence, but we also ignore he utter frustration and
helplessness that the African American's felt during the conclusion of the American Revolution.
The first stanza of the poem congratulates Legge for his efforts to promote civil communication and
reconciliation between America and Great Britain during the early stages of American Revolution.
She discusses Legge's role in assisting the former British colonies to receive their freedom.
However, after she praises Legge, Wheatley begins to explain her reasons for asking for help. In the

not receive better treatment. The mixed babies had to go through a test to prove that they were

During that period, the doctor's daughter Vanessa was trying to make friends with Piquette but she

Judge Newman who made this decision, the term "free white persons" used in the statutes to exclude
Asians was not referring to skin color but to race, and since scientific evidences proved that Syrians
belonged to Caucasian race, Najour should be considered as belonging to white race despite his dark
skin color. This court decision revealed that Caucasian was equal to White and color was not legally
related to race, showing the expansion of white notion. At this point, not only would the people of
light complexion and European descents be regarded as Whites relying on common understandings,
but also people of Caucasian race based on scientific evidences. This, in turn, caused the

Argumentative Essay On White Trash
White Trash Bash
I strive for personal happiness in life. Some people would equate their happiness to money, personal
possessions, or even success. While the standard for being happy will vary based on personal
preference, I have noticed that the people that surround my life can make a significant impact on my
overall happiness. For this reason, I have learned to avoid "white trash." Their actions do nothing to
increase happiness in others' lives, in fact, in my experience they have done more harm than good.
The term "white trash" does not necessarily refer to a person who lives in a white. The stereotype for
"white trash" is typically Caucasian, dressing provocatively, and having poor hygiene. Furthermore,
they are negligent parents, physically violent, and alcoholics, and they should be avoided. By
understanding the key signs through their appearance and actions, people can avoid them and
hopefully keep happiness and joy a part their lives.
White trash people all exhibit three main characteristics in their appearance. The first easily
noticeable sign is their ethnicity. white trash almost exclusively refers to Caucasian Americans.
white trash is slang used in America to refer to lower income Caucasian families. This term derives
from "white trash" which came about in the 1830's. African American slaves would show an
extensive amount of contempt towards white servants, thus developing the slang term "white trash".
Another easy way to spot white trash is their clothing. Due to the low income their clothes tend to be
ill fitting. Over the years, this has transformed into more revealing clothing for men and women.
Men will wear jean shorts, crocs, and alcohol affiliated baseball hats. In addition, they will wear a
soiled a–line tank top, also known as a "wife beater", or no shirt at all. Women often wear tops
showing excessive cleavage, midriff, and lower back. It is easy to see a woman's brightly colored
thong peeking out of their skirts, rising along their hips creating what's called a "whale tail". Another

Analysis Of The Book ' White ' And ' Anglo Saxon ' Essay
The History of White People was such an interesting and intriguing book to read. This book is about
race, especially the white race. Nell Irvin Painter, the author, writes this book to explain the history
of the term "white". People tend to categorize people by just black and white when there is so much
more to it. Terms such as "Caucasian" and "Anglo–Saxon" are used often today to refer to white
looking people. This book really traces the changing idea of who is considered white and why they
are placed in that specific category. The idea tends to change over time depending on the where in
the world you are located. The book is also focused on reviewing how whiteness has been defined
by Europeans and European–Americans, mostly geared towards other groups of people who we tend
to consider nowadays as white. Painter notes that most of the writers on the topic of white identity
did not deal with the East Asians and Native Americans. The focus was more about whether Eastern
European or Middle Eastern, even Irish or Italian people were white enough to join and be
considered as an Anglo–Saxon because of their white identity. The basic overall idea of the book is
revolved around how race has been understood in America since back in the colonial days and how
the concept of race has been abused by bad science and used as a word of power by the more elite
whites that came from one era after another. People have turned the word race into a negative rather

The Cultural Origins of Racial Science

  • 1. The Cultural History Behind Racial Science "Race" is a fictional notion fashioned by debunked scientists in order to justify their cruelties and enhance their perceived superiority. Just as religion was once used to justify the horrors of the Crusades (Lindqvist, pg. 161), science would be the means to pardon the brutalities of imperialism, manifest destiny, and the white man's burden. Constrained by binary thinking, Western thought pinned the illusory "civilized" against the "primitive" using metaphors attached to scientific reasoning (Stepan, pg. 362). Because of Africans' supposed likeness to apes, they were not fully human; skull measurements, despite being inaccurate, were used to rank the races of Mongoloid, Negro, and Caucasian (Gould, pg. 103). Through some omissions and statistical finagling, Caucasians wound up with the highest cranial capacities. Consequently, small and ape–like became synonyms for inferior and stupid. In this paper, I will draw upon our class readings to explicate the cultural history behind racial science, and how science artificially constructed race by ignoring outliers and probing for racial differences. Science was born deeply intertwined within the Western cultural realm. It developed snuggly with ideas of European grandeur through the "grace and favor of Almighty God" (Lindqvist, pg.11). "The cultural conditioning these [scientists] had absorbed early in their careers influenced more than their writing: it skewed their research (Freedman). Coinciding with scientific inquiries of ...

  • 3. African Americans And The Caucasian Race Do African Americans as a people have equal rights as those of the Caucasian race? Are we not under the same Constitution and Judicial system? Some would argue yes and some would argue no. What side are you on? Why is it that so many race crimes have occurred against African Americans in the past seven years and the race of the person committing the crime is of the Caucasian race? Is it that racism still exists? In the free world we live in we are still in bondage to the never ending struggle of racism. Racism as a whole leads to segregation and the improper use of laws. Again why are we facing these struggles following a document that was claimed to "forever free" slaves? The Emancipation formally freed African Americans but we are still ...

How many times do you drive in a bad neighborhood or are in your car at night and lock your door when you see a guy or group of guys walk pass? How many times is the guy or group of guys of the African American race? We live in a world that socially and economically puts labels on people because of the color of their skin, geographic location and demographic, and the way they dress and how they speak. This is evident in every single part of the nation we live in. For example, I am from Columbus, Ohio and I went to a small private school in the suburbs that was predominately black. I have participated in games against other schools in our league and in other counties of my state, where we were called "niggers" by players and even parents throughout competition. Imagine in some cases being called that by even the sporting officials, and even further if they do not physically say it they have the ability to make games harder on you and give you unfair penalties. Majority of the time these referees are the same referees game after game, or even from these counties. There was no going to the referees and you could not get upset and act out of character because then you are only behaving as the "nigger" they already think you are. According To Kenneth T. Ponds racism causes trauma and he states that "Racial trauma is the physiological, psychological, and emotional damage resulting ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 5. From Deep Woods And Civilization By Charles Eastman In "From Deep Woods to Civilization", Charles Eastman tells his life story about his culture and how he led his life. As an Indian, Charles Eastman battled with trying to identify with his culture. Charles Eastman decided that he wanted more out of life as it relates to an education, so he went back to school. He wanted to educate the people and his culture by changing the world's views of American Indians. Charles Eastman discussed the Indian lifestyle, economic exchange, and religious views compared to the white society. He believed that white culture is superior to Indian Culture. There was concern about the survival of American–Indian. Charles Eastman was an Indian of the Sioux Tribe and he was confused about who he was. If it wasn't for his family history, everyone would have different views about Charles identity. Charles' father wants him to leave the tribe, go out and view the world, otherwise his grandmother thinks he should stay and help the tribe. For Eastman to leave the tribe, he believes this is a way for him to show the upper and middle–class White Culture his values, integrity, his manhood, and the stereotypes of other Natives. Charles wants his male culture and Caucasian males to become equal as well as gain full citizenship with one another. The Natives must overcome racism with the Caucasian population. If they want to achieve white racism or if they wanted to achieve full equality within the U.S. Society there are steps that must be taken. ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 7. The Caucasian Chalk Circle In The Caucasian Chalk Circle, Brecht combined the theme of motherhood with revolutionary ideas about theatre.' Discuss. Bertolt Brecht's play The Caucasian Chalk Circle is a social and political commentary, focusing on justice and motherhood. Using revolutionary theatrical techniques and devices to reinforce his theme, Brecht attempts to free his audience from the constraints of traditional theatre, enabling them to make impartial judgments of their own. Despite combining these radical ideas about theatre with the theme of motherhood, Brecht does not wholly succeed in alienating the audience, as it is impossible for them to totally distance themselves from such an emotive subject as motherhood. A German poet, playwright, and ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... In the play, Brecht explores social alternatives as the audience is presented with various types of mothers. Grusha represents all that a 'good' mother should be. She continues to care for Michael, even after she is advised to leave the child behind. She is forced to flee the city in order to protect him from the ironshirts. She pays two piasters, equivalent to a week's wages, so that he can have milk. She does not abandon him when the ironshirts catch up with them but hits one over the head with a piece of wood, allowing them to escape. Grusha is forced to make many self–sacrifices in order to save Michael. She does so financially, emotionally, in terms of her promise to Simon, and in terms of her life. When her brother Lavrenti insists that she must marry Jussup in order to make Michael a 'legitimate child', she agrees, thus breaking her engagement promise to Simon. When she is confronted by the Ironshirts and must choose between claiming Michael as her child and losing Simon, or disclaiming Michael and regaining Simon's love and respect, She chooses Michael. In doing so, she sacrifices her future happiness with Simon. Grusha gives up everything that is important in her life in order to keep Michael safe. Brecht's depiction of Grusha contrasts enormously with the other representations of mothers in the text. In the first act, Michael's natural mother Natella is portrayed as jealous of her own son, "But Georgi, of course, will only ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 9. Dr. Martin Luther King Dr. Martin Luther King is a very passionate, motivating and an inspiring speaker. His "I Have a Dream" is a perfect example of pathos. His speech had so much passions that it filled the audience with so much emotions. Even though there is a strong presence of pathos, than logo and ethos. They are very much present in his speech. On August 28, 1963, on a Washington DC street filled with over 250,000 demonstrators [black and white, young and old] came together to witness Dr. Martin Luther King speaks about the unhuman treatment of the colored people in America, and to appeal for an end to the discrimination and Segregation in the United States. This peaceful gathering is now regarded as one of the pivotal point in the civil right movement in America. At a time where colored people were viewed as lesser race to the white race in America, Dr. Martin Luther King's speech was expected to rally the races together. The civil right movement can easily be viewed as a war between African–Americans and Caucasians Americans, but it reality many other races were involved, like: Hispanic and Americans, Asian Americans were also discriminated and surrogated from the Caucasian population. The cruel and merciless white police officers would issue out orders to their racists' subordinates on the powerless African–American young adults and children.

  • 11. Analysis Of The Book ' Ceremony ' In the book titled Ceremony, Tayo faced several cultural difficulties that led him to realize his cultural identity and beliefs. In the end, these elements assisted him in completing his new ceremony that healed his post–traumatic stress disorder. The first challenge he faced was being a mixed blood composing of half Indian and half Caucasian. For example, Tayo dealt with prejudice from his Auntie and his acquaintance Emo. When Tayo was young his Auntie kept him and his cousin Rocky separated due to the shameful act of her sister Laura, who was Tayo's mother. Laura fornicated with a White man and gave birth to Tayo, who was a mixed blood, which his Auntie felt was a disgraceful act to her family's cultural tradition. As for Emo, he despised Tayo ever since grade school due to Tayo being half White. Emo had a prejudiced view on Caucasians due to his view that White people had everything, including the land they took from the Indian people, while his Indian people were left with nothing. The next challenge that he discovers was the difficulties in being trapped in the middle of two different cultures. His Indian belief of worshiping the nature spirits differed greatly from the White culture in school and in the military, which gave scientific reasoning and claimed that the Indian belief was based on superstitions. Native American culture worships animals, plants, the sun, rain, and wind due to their beliefs and the explanations they learned from their ancestors. ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 13. Literature Review : Hiring Managers Are Hiring Caucasians... LITERATURE REVIEW Hypothesis 1: Hiring managers are hiring Caucasians for Senior Level Executive positions over minority applicants. In America, cultural sounding names are prevalent. People attribute certain cultural names with racial groups. For example, Lakisha Johnson and Jamal Wilson may be seen as names of African Americans While Emily Adams and Connor Backham, may be seen as Caucasian names. Marianne Bertrans and Sendhill Mullainathan conducted a study on race in the labor market by sending fictitious resumes to help–wanted ads in Boston and Chicago newspapers. To manipulate perceived race, resumes were randomly assigned African–American or White–sounding names before being sent to jobs around the Boston and Chicago area. White names received 50 percent more callback for interviews compared to the African–American names. They also found the racial gap to be uniform across occupation, industry and employer size. In fact, Bertans and Mullainathan found evidence that inferred social class from the names. This study was particular interesting because it presented research as to how employers are using prejudice attitudes when extending interviews. This study aids to our research because it shows how hiring managers are denying cultural sounding names even before an interview. Despite their qualified experience, skills or education, they are overlooked therefore more attention is giving toward other applicants which could result in Caucasians being offered the ...

  • 15. A Conversation about Race: A Documentary by Craig Bodeker... A Conversation About Race is a documentary by Craig Bodeker. In the movie, Mr. Bodeker attempts to debunk racism. The film centers on interviews of people in Denver, Colorado who answered a Craigslist posting entitled "Ending Racism Now" as well as people interviewed on street corners presumably at random. Mr. Bodeker presents clips of these interviews and provides narration. According to Mr. Bodeker, the film's purpose is to expose the myth of racism and show how the White race suffers from reverse racism and double standards (Dispatch Inc, 2013). The film opens with a quote by Reverend Jeremiah Wright, "Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run!...We [in the U.S.] believe in white supremacy and black ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... The question, "Are Blacks better at basketball than Whites?" is a stereotypical question and does not prove Mr. Bodeker's claims in the least. Similarly, Mr. Bodeker claimed society cannot give credit to the White race for its successes. Mr. Bodeker points out an area where Whites excel (standardized testing). He further makes a point of saying the interviewees stated it had to be due to cultural bias, as they could not give credit to Whites. It is a proven fact standardized testing is written in a cultural bias manner. Therefore, the results of Whites scoring better is due to cultural bias not their ability to test well. Again, this question does not support Mr. Bodeker's claims. In fact, Mr. Bodeker's questions and the manner in which he framed them only serve to show how one–sided his film is. Clearly, racism exists and is not a myth; history proves this statement. While Mr. Bodeker made some valid statements, racism is a social construct, much of his assertions I found lacked merit. Particularly Mr. Bodeker's assertions regarding rape and the statistical data he provided. "According to the US Justice Department for the year 2005 in the USA black men raped or sexually assaulted white women over 37,000 times; averaging 100 time per day..." (Dispatch Inc, 2013). While on its face this data may seem to justify Mr. Bodeker's claims, this statistic is nothing but a measurement of how many rapes were ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 17. Non Caucasian American Suicide There is a dramatic difference between the suicide rates of Caucasians and Non– Caucasian individuals. There are multiple reasons as to why that could be. One of the possible reasons for that stems from how our very society has been formed. When looking at the history, specifically here in the United States, we find that many Non–Caucasian groups of individuals have suffered at the hands of Caucasians in some way shape or form. Through that suffering, there was something that developed within those groups of people, resilience, strength, flexibility, and toughness. Non– Caucasian groups of people, for the most part, are use to the struggle that comes with being a minority so when all these hardships are happening, they do what their ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... There was a drastic rise in the suicide rates among white males specifically. One did not see that same rise in suicide rates among minorities. There has been plenty of speculation as to why that could have been. One reason is that the one cannot lose money that they never had access too. Although the Great Depression was bad for the country, it has a big effect on those with power in society and that was white males who were not accustomed to not getting their way or having to live without the money they lost and they could not handle it. A similar trend happened even as recent as the Recession of 2008–2009 when there was a surge of suicide rates among white people. Even though we have improved vastly as a society from the 1920s until now there was a similar pattern we see. The United States is for the most part run by Caucasians so when we have an economic decline it does not affect minorities as much as if effects majorities who are not used to living without. Being forced into downsizing and not being able to handle the stress that comes with having less plays a role in the suicide rates being higher among Caucasians than Non– Caucasians as a ...

  • 19. The Harmful Myth Of Asian Superiority Ronald Takaki point out how there is a big misconception with Asian Americans in today's society in his article "The Harmful Myth of Asian Superiority." Stating, "Asian Americans have increasingly come to be viewed as a 'model minority.'"(Takaki, 117) Although that is not the case at all, most Asian Americans have to work hard to get to where they are. Moving up is not easy and not something they do to be looked at as role models or as pricks that take everyone's jobs. They work hard and get more education and a better paying job than everyone else because that's the only way they are able to make a great living in a new country. Although many would like to point out how they're income is higher than most Caucasians it is only because they live with many more people that are able to contribute to that. Coming from a Hispanic background I could defiantly see where many Americans of any other race other than Caucasians would see there is a misconception. Coming from a different country or even being second generation one has to work a lot harder to get where many Americans can get with just a snap of a finger. Like Takaki said, "While Japanese American men in California earned and average income comparable to Caucasian men in 1980, they did so only by acquiring more education and working more hours."(117) Immigrants in general have to work two times harder to get the basic of what any Caucasian man or woman would get, and to move past them it takes even more hard work. ...

  • 21. Racial Differences Between Caucasian Ancestry And... Section 114(2) goes on to state "...and the identification was made without the person who made it having been intentionally influenced to identify the defendant." The NSW Commissioner for Police published an applicable guideline for the Evidence Act, further clearing any ambiguities in particular definitions. The correct procedure when conducting an identification parade is to use "six or more people of similar age, height and appearance as the suspect." Eight men were present at the identification parade, but five of them were not of Caucasian descent. This refutes the application listed above; that the people in the parade must be of similar appearance to the suspect. If the suspect's details were that he is of Caucasian background, the identification parade should present 6 or more people of Caucasian descent. Although there were eight people present in the line up, due to the obvious racial differences from the suspect's description, the parade technically only had three people from who Constable Mosman could choose. Furthermore, in the legal recording between the accused and his brother, the accused states that the police officer that brought Constable Mosman in to the parade was the same police officer that had interviewed him earlier. This point is an important one, as it establishes a possible prejudice regarding identification. At this point, it can be concluded that section 114(2) has not been satisfied, whereby there is a chance the witness was prejudicially ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The Naturalization Act Of 1906 In 1904, Theodore Roosevelt appointed the President's Commission on Naturalization to gather opinions from members of the court system and immigration experts regarding ways to reform naturalization. Citizenship through naturalization, since it had previously been administered at the locale level, had been used by local groups to garner support for their political party. For instance, if a judge suspected that the person applying for naturalization would vote in favour of the party he supported in the upcoming election, then that person would be granted naturalization. However, this practice soon came under scrutiny from both local newspapers and the federal government, which resulted in the commission. The recommendations of the ...

The Aryans were a group of invaders who were believed to have come to India around 1500 BCE. The Vedas are Hindu religious texts that describe the caste system, placing the descents of the Aryan people, who were fair– skinned and blue–eyed, at the highest levels of the system. As a high caste Hindu, Thind argued that he shared common ancestry with European peoples and could therefore be considered "white". In his self–published account of his naturalization case, Ghadiali expressed puzzlement regarding the state's claim that he was non–white given that all he was able to see when he looked at himself was white. The title of Munshi's article about the case which is taken from a quotation of Ghadiali, "You will see my family became so American", shows how closely Ghadiali associated being American with being white. The connection between America and whiteness is a prevalent one that lingers still and I contend that this is in part due to the cyclical self–exclusion of minorities such as Thind and Ghadiali who sought to assimilate through the assertion of whiteness, which only resulted in the further exclusion of ...

Being White in America has no set definition other than an individual with a linage to the United kingdom, Europe, Germany, or Scandinavian. Being White in America is a skin pigment, rather than a community or collaboration of traditions as displayed in minorities. Because there is no regulated definition or standard as to what Whiteness is or should be, Through personal and informal questioning of my fellow students on campus, a notable and interesting trend emerged: only one of the Caucasian people that was questioned could answer what it meant to be White in America. She defined it less about race and more about what White people stereotypically do. These include things such as being in the upper middle class with a steady retirement fund in a two parent household. This idea of a typical White family or life does hold some merit. The 2010 United States census has found that the average White person will live in a community that is seventy–seven percent white. Among White Americans, ninety–one percent of the people that they communicate with through their social media networks are also White. Three–quarters of White Americans report only have contact on social media with people exclusively of their own race (2015, August 28).

The purpose of racial amalgamation is the annihilation of the White, Aryan, Adamic, race – the race created in God's image. At the time that George wrote, the major racial issue was Whites verses Blacks. For the most part, the American Indian issues have faded. If he were to write today, he would have focused a good deal on the exploding Turanian invasion – mostly from Mexico and other Latin American countries and the Far East (Japan, Korea, China, and the Philippines). Another important race that he would need to consider is the Melanochroi – mostly form India, Pakistan, Arabian peninsula, and Somalia. Percentage–wise, the Melanochroi is probably the fastest growing race in the United States. He would surely be weeping over the death of the White race and, thereby, the death of the American civilization. George feared that the mongrelization of the White race with the Black race would bring down America.

  • 31. Prejudice By William Packer 's Brownie Prejudice refers to an unfavourable opinion or judgment formed against a person without proper assessment of a situation. It is an unreasonable or attitude that is hostile in nature with regards to an individual, or a group on an ethnic, racial, or social basis. Prejudice is thus most prevalent in regions where there are different groups and where one group is predominant over the other. As a result, prejudice is a common theme in most literary works and ZZ Packer's Brownie, is one of the short stories that extensively covers this theme. This essay looks at the theme of prejudice in Packer's Brownie as exhibited by the story's characters including Arnetta, Janice, Laurel and her father. In the story, the narrator, Laurel comes face to face with the complex nature of race relations, which lead to her understanding of the human nature. In the course of their tour, there is high tension and fears due to racism culminated by the plot by the brownies to revenge against a perceived slight. The tension decreases when the troops come face to face with their misconception. Through the experiences of the characters, Parker illustrates the extent to which racism is rampant in our society. He shows how the society reinforces and perpetuates this vice. Through Laurel's first person narrative, Parker is able to bring out the dehumanizing effects that come because of racism. Her deep insights expose racial prejudice as the main cause of human suffering. Laurel does not know much about the ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

She said "Mr.__ clam on top of me, do his business, in ten minutes us both asleep (Walker,p.66)." Similarly, many females had there own views on men but mass women had a negative view. Miss Maudie stated her view by this comment "all men lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women (Lee, p.273)." Tom is a prime example that there was injustice to Negros as well during this time. Coloured men had stereotypes and unfair accusations against them from the white race. Tom was not a liar, nor immoral . Not all men were evil and caustic. Celie growing up around atrocious men, has the same salient view as Miss Maudie on men. Although there were many treatments of blacks that can be considered unjust, racism is the most recognizable and alive oppression. This was exceedingly frequent in two novels. Racism is inevitable, it has always been around. Racism has got better over time but it has not constantly been like this. Both novels substantiate this and bring enlightenment back to how racism was in the 1930 's. The caucasian race was superior during this time and more powerful. The caucasians knew they were superior, they had set views on the negro 's. Not all the whites preformed colossal acts against the negro 's, but even minor acts were to make the negro 's feel degraded. A ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Caucasian Culture In John Stockett's The Help Throughout the novel, "The Help" the Caucasian culture is the dominant culture and has positive and negative impacts on the plot, characters, and themes, but mostly negative impacts. Since, this book take place during the 1960s, there was a lot of racism in the United States, and so African Americans were inferior to Caucasians. The Caucasian culture has a negative effect on African Americans due to the racism and separation, since this book took place in the 1960s, as mention earlier. For example, all black maids within Aibileen's community would have to use their separate bathroom since "they carry different kinds of diseases than we" (Stockett 10). This demonstrates that there is a separation between the two cultures because the Caucasians ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Throughout the chapters in which Ms. Skeeter appears, the theme of social expectations is present. For example, just like how black maids have their destiny in society, so do white people because Ms. Skeeter believes she will "never be able to tell [her] mother [that she] wants to be a writer" (Stockett 65). This clarifies that she is expected to be married and have babies by the time she is 22 years old. In addition, this states that white women are not suppose to have jobs and it is more of the men's role to have a job and support their family. Another theme that is present throughout the first seven chapters is that white children often form a devotion to their maids. Aibileen and Mae Mobley share this relationship as well as Ms. Skeeter and Constantine because these black maids have been taking care of theses white children since they were born, which can make black maids be looked upon as a mother figure. Therefore, this trust between Ms. Skeeter and Constantine gave Ms. Skeeter the ability "to have someone to keep secrets with" (Stockett 76). This explains that the relationship between the two is too strong that is removes the ideology of African Americans being not trust worthy and cruel individuals. Also, this relationship usually leads to a heartbreak for both because for one, the maid be fired or went her own ways and the child will eventually grow up to become a future employer.

I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't know much of the history as it relates to the Caucasians coming over here (pre Christopher Columbus). If I were a racist or raised to be one, I'd have a lot of hate in my heart! Crime started with the Caucasians as they stole the land, enslaved people, lied, cheated, murdered individuals, and passed judgement on individuals (humans) who weren't like them. This is something deeply rooted with in most; but not all Caucasians. I believe that they are afraid that the other cultures will do to them (the Caucasians) what they did to others. Although America has gotten a better racism still exists. The problem is because of the change for betterment some don't want to acknowledge that racism still exists. The media doesn't help either. Cases like Travon Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and so on, help perpetrate hate and disgust for a race.

Throughout the world, an ongoing pandemic is occurring, but has gone unnoticed by many. However, while most people are unaffected by this, one group in particular is hit hard the most, minorities. The problem at hand is not one of late, it has plagued civilizations since the beginning of times, perhaps in different forms, but the idea has largely remained unchanged. According to Merriam–Webster Dictionary, the definition of racism, or the idea in question is defined as, "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." A close analysis of the events that occurred on April 9, 2014, reveal that racism continues to thrive in America's modern society. In all cases similar to the occurrences in 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri, there is one correlation that can be seen across the board; in most if not all cases involving a caucasian against a minority in whatever form of dispute, the caucasian has the advantage in terms that they either win the dispute or if are found at fault, receive a less severe consequence, if any at all, than if the minority had been found at fault.

Phillis Wheatley wrote, To the Right Honorable William, Earl of Dartmouth, to William Legge, a British politician who sided with the American's wishes to repeal the Stamp Act, and refused to personally wage war against them. This poem is often viewed as a poem dedicated to congratulating and praising Legge for his amiable actions towards the American people. However, this idea is not entirely true. Wheatley's poem isn't solely a poem of praise but a desperate woman's plea for help. In the poem Wheatley employs tactics of sympathy, empath, and bribery to convince Legge to use his influence to aid the African American race. It is important that we realize this poem is a cry for help because not only do we overlook Wheatley's intelligence, but we also ignore he utter frustration and helplessness that the African American's felt during the conclusion of the American Revolution. The first stanza of the poem congratulates Legge for his efforts to promote civil communication and reconciliation between America and Great Britain during the early stages of American Revolution. She discusses Legge's role in assisting the former British colonies to receive their freedom. However, after she praises Legge, Wheatley begins to explain her reasons for asking for help.

The mixed babies had to go through a test to prove that they were worthy and light enough to be white and work in the house. "The brown paper bag test was a ritual once practiced", (Norris).

Often perceived as a group of tyrannical oppressors, the white people have firmly established their gruesome and discriminatory image through the bloody history of its dictatorship over racial minorities. Although it is true to some extent that White people were biased and unjust to other races, it is obvious that the intransigent mindset of the native Indian people have also contributed to the intense enmity between the two races.

In "The Loons", the half– breed girl Piquette Tonnerre spent a month with the MacLeods, a Caucasian family on a holiday. During that period, the doctor's daughter Vanessa was trying to make friends with Piquette but she was rejected and ignored by the narrow–minded, over–defensive Piquette. Vanessa is an example of the open–minded, culture exchanging Whites Cardinal described at the end of "The Mystery of the White Man" (Cardinal, 200).

Both of the stories "Akua Nuten" and "The Loons" have reflected the fact that White people do try to reach out and discover the Indian culture. Nevertheless, they were either neglected by the unsociable Piquette or frightened at gunpoint by the racist Kukatso (Theriault, 128).

  • 63. Descriptive Experience Of A Restaurant The Wool Growers Basque Restaurant is located on the East side of Bakersfield. The location is in a bad part of town. The outside of the building doesn't look very appealing and the location is surrounded by old buildings and old neighborhood houses. As I arrived I was surprised to see a full parking lot. When I entered the restaurant I encounter a heavy crowd in the bar section. I was shocked to see only white people from old to middle age. As I was walking down the hall to the dining area, I could see many pictures of family generations. My classmates were there already, so we sat down and ordered our meals. The place was packed! It seems like this is a very traditional family restaurant. All the tables were occupied with grandparents, parents, and children. I could guess, there were about 150 people, and only Eva, Angie, Mirna, the waiter and I were Mexicans! I'm assuming that many of the clientele has been going to this restaurant as a family tradition. It was a neat experience. The food was good. Vallarta Supermarket There are several Vallarta supermarkets in Bakersfield, but I usually frequent the one on Panama Road close to freeway 99. It's cleaner and less crowed. I'm amazed by the large variety of fruits and vegetables. Vallarta has more variety of Mexican and Central American produce than any other stores in Bakersfield. Every time I go there, it reminds me of the Mercado from Mexico. The store's costumers are mainly Hispanic, but I can see a ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 65. Asian Immigrants During The Nineteenth Century Asian immigrants in the history of United States had a hard time gaining legal citizenship. For instance, the Naturalization Act of 1790 excluded both free blacks and Asian Americans from U.S. citizenship, while the 1870 revision expanded the white racial qualification to include "aliens of African nativity and to persons of African descent," keeping aliens of Asian origin excluded. Even under harsh conditions, Asian immigrants did not give up attempting to be naturalized after 1870. However, it is remarkable that no Asian immigrants sought naturalized citizenship by claiming that they were Blacks. Instead, they learned the strategy to cast themselves as Whites while applying for U.S. citizenship. This noteworthy historical phenomena ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... In 1909, however, Najour successfully obtained his naturalization rights because he was considered as part of the Caucasian or white race, decided by the 5th Court of Appeals. According to District Judge Newman who made this decision, the term "free white persons" used in the statutes to exclude Asians was not referring to skin color but to race, and since scientific evidences proved that Syrians belonged to Caucasian race, Najour should be considered as belonging to white race despite his dark skin color. This court decision revealed that Caucasian was equal to White and color was not legally related to race, showing the expansion of white notion. At this point, not only would the people of light complexion and European descents be regarded as Whites relying on common understandings, but also people of Caucasian race based on scientific evidences. This, in turn, caused the development of legal split between scientific understandings and common knowledge, which is one of the major significances of In re Najour. Different courts chose different theories to make decisions on naturalization cases. Some courts used common knowledge, while others preferred scientific evidence. However, more importantly, In re Najour also helps showcase the value of whiteness. As was mentioned above, the fact that aliens could be granted citizenship based on scientific evidences ...

  • 67. Argumentative Essay On White Trash White Trash Bash I strive for personal happiness in life. Some people would equate their happiness to money, personal possessions, or even success. While the standard for being happy will vary based on personal preference, I have noticed that the people that surround my life can make a significant impact on my overall happiness. For this reason, I have learned to avoid "white trash." Their actions do nothing to increase happiness in others' lives, in fact, in my experience they have done more harm than good. The term "white trash" does not necessarily refer to a person who lives in a white. The stereotype for "white trash" is typically Caucasian, dressing provocatively, and having poor hygiene. Furthermore, they are negligent parents, physically violent, and alcoholics, and they should be avoided. By understanding the key signs through their appearance and actions, people can avoid them and hopefully keep happiness and joy a part their lives. White trash people all exhibit three main characteristics in their appearance. The first easily noticeable sign is their ethnicity. white trash almost exclusively refers to Caucasian Americans. white trash is slang used in America to refer to lower income Caucasian families. This term derives from "white trash" which came about in the 1830's. African American slaves would show an extensive amount of contempt towards white servants, thus developing the slang term "white trash". Another easy way to spot white trash is their clothing. Due to the low income their clothes tend to be ill fitting. Over the years, this has transformed into more revealing clothing for men and women. Men will wear jean shorts, crocs, and alcohol affiliated baseball hats. In addition, they will wear a soiled a–line tank top, also known as a "wife beater", or no shirt at all. Women often wear tops showing excessive cleavage, midriff, and lower back. It is easy to see a woman's brightly colored thong peeking out of their skirts, rising along their hips creating what's called a "whale tail". Another important detail in identifying white trash is their poor physical hygiene. They will normally have greasy hair, oily skin, terrible body odor, and disastrous teeth.

What about when you hear the term "abuse"? For most people, abuse means physical; getting beat up or hit. Although abuse can mean getting beat up or hit, there is far more that follows. Abuse can take on many forms like physical, emotional or sexual. The film Precious by Lee Daniels, based on the novel Push by Sapphire, encounters not only the obvious sexual abuse but physical and emotional abuse as well.

These stereotypes are very disadvantaging to the African American race because they are putting out messages that you have to look a certain way to be attractive. Although this film is disadvantaging to many people, it is also very beneficial. I think people that come from the lower class or an abusive household can really benefit from this film. The main point of this film is to show people that you can achieve anything you want to do no matter what background you come from, and although it might be hard because of economical/ personal issues you are not less of a person than anyone and you can still be successful. I love the idea of success because it doesn't really have a set definition. You don't necessarily need money to be/feel successful. You can work at Subway and still be successful while a twelve time Oscar winning actor can be successful. You sort of carve out your own success and make your own definition for it. This movie will also teach people that they are not on their own. Although you might think nobody is there for you, when you enter a room you don't know what everyone is thinking or how everyone feels; you might now even know everyone. It is kind of like when you're putting together a puzzle, you put certain pieces together and you get closer to finishing and you just need to keep trying to solve the puzzle because if you give up you just wasted your money on a puzzle ...

Diabetes : Diabetes And Caucasian Ethnicity In 2012, 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population, had diabetes, this is a huge jump from the 28 million found in 2010 (Report, 2014) With such prevalence is it important to understand what diabetes are, risk factors, and how to treat it in order to prevent further complications. Let's take a moment here to understand what insulin does. Insulin is the main product that escorts sugar into the cells to be burned off and converted into energy. Kind of like your prom date walking you into the big event arm–in–arm. Nobody wants to go to prom alone, so the sugar (glucose) just hangs around waiting for her date. In diabetes the sugar is either at an all–girls school or all the dates are already taken by other sugars. With both you will see excess sugar in the blood. Type1 diabetes risk factors are usually genetics and Caucasian ethnicity. Type 2 risk factors are slightly different and include obesity, sedentary lifestyle, age, family history, hypertension, high level of triglycerides, history of gestational diabetes, ethnic group including African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders.

The Role Of Media And Its Effects On Society There are many types of media that are constantly being shown in this time of era, such as, films, documentaries, music videos, and advertisements. The public tends to attach themselves to films and music videos when there are controversial ideas that rise from these forms of media and advertisements sometimes receive the attention but after time passes on we forget them. Aunt Jemima is a famous individual who has been through many changed over time, which at first, she looked like a terrifying African American lady who had a creepy smile but as time passed, her appearance changed to fit into this society's norm. From this we are likely to think that this types of ethnics and racism has been eliminated in this decade. However, even in 2016 these advertisements do not clearly present us with this much racism but we do have advertisements that present this idea of undermining one race but showing it passively. Hence, we can state that form of racism has definitely decreased in the portrayal of advertisement but there will always be a form of racism presented to the audience in one way or the other. To justify this statement, we will be analyzing these five advertisements from the year 2011 and year of 2016.

The Importance Of Cultural Communication Class The purpose of this paper is to shed light on my experience in downtown Chicago and relate what I encountered with key concepts from cultural communications class. I will be talking about social class, self–surveillance, privilege, marginalization, hegemony, meritocracy, and double consciousness. By comparing all of these terms with my first –hand experience downtown will give a better view on just how important and relevant cultural sociological structures are. Social Class When I first arrived in Downtown Chicago, I noticed an abundance of homeless individuals, but what struck me was the major separation in class when a nicely suited businessman would stand nearby the homeless person waiting for the light to change to walk across the street. The difference was extremely noticeable the homeless were very dirty and were constantly asking for help, while the freshly dressed businessman talked carefree handling a business call. To emphasize on the extreme difference in social class from poor to working upper class, I witnessed a homeless gentleman in the bathroom fully stripping down to wash up in the public bathroom sink in Macy's. When I seen the man full on taking a bath in the sink using hand soap to clean his body, I realized the extremities that come with being less fortunate.I also recognized the bizarre paradox of how homeless people would lay on the ground and how people with more stability would lay.

  • 77. Analysis Of The Book ' White ' And ' Anglo Saxon ' Essay The History of White People was such an interesting and intriguing book to read. This book is about race, especially the white race. Nell Irvin Painter, the author, writes this book to explain the history of the term "white". People tend to categorize people by just black and white when there is so much more to it. Terms such as "Caucasian" and "Anglo–Saxon" are used often today to refer to white looking people. This book really traces the changing idea of who is considered white and why they are placed in that specific category. The idea tends to change over time depending on the where in the world you are located. The book is also focused on reviewing how whiteness has been defined by Europeans and European–Americans, mostly geared towards other groups of people who we tend to consider nowadays as white. Painter notes that most of the writers on the topic of white identity did not deal with the East Asians and Native Americans. The focus was more about whether Eastern European or Middle Eastern, even Irish or Italian people were white enough to join and be considered as an Anglo–Saxon because of their white identity. The basic overall idea of the book is revolved around how race has been understood in America since back in the colonial days and how the concept of race has been abused by bad science and used as a word of power by the more elite whites that came from one era after another. People have turned the word race into a negative rather than it being just another ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
