Racism Violence, Morality, and Responsibility Research Paper

… Racism

Violence, Morality, and Responsibility

An examination of institutionalized racism and its ethical consequences.

The presence of institutionalized racism is often hard to deny in many circumstances. However, the solutions to prohibiting this type of violence are far from clear. Much of the debate that surrounds this issue deals with the level of the individual and the motivations for personal choices. For example, a person might display racist institutional behavior even though they justify by other motives and thus hide their true intentions. Furthermore, it could also be the case that the individual might not even fully understand their true intentions. Therefore, even though a person might be basing their behavior on racist sentiments, they might not fully understand their own internal processes for doing…. [read more]

Racism in the Arizona Community Research Paper

… Most of the slaves consisted of different racial minorities. Most of the laws designed in those days were based around the idea of controlling and subjugating the minorities, their choices, behavioral inclinations and social activities. The post-antebellum South has especially been known in American history to formulate laws against the minorities and their acts of vagrancy and loitering. In my opinion, the media nowadays realizes how far discrimination against minorities has comes and focuses on it, but on the other hand seems to forget that there is still a very long way to go.

What are some similarities and differences between you and the people who are in leadership positions in the community? Do you think minority group interests are represented within the community?

United States Since 1940 Mapping the Moral Landscape Thesis

… The Moral Landscape of Pre Civil Rights America
The United States has always suffered from a fundamental identity
crisis. Ideologically committed to the extension of an admirable set of
values, most centrally those of liberty, justice and human equality, its
growth to a nation of incomparable prosperity was in many ways facilitated
by its combined plenteousness of natural resources and a system of
unfettered free labor known as the slave trade. As the Founding Fathers
and framers of the U.S. Constitution would begin the charge toward the war
for independence from England, this contradiction would become an issue of
increasing importance, particularly due to the seeming moral implications
of the fledgling democracy's new doctrine granting legal protection to the
great values above mentioned. However, a…. [read more]

Penal Practices Essay

… Crime, Aboriginality and the Decolonization of Justice

There are reports of huge levels of sending people to jails in Australia as Blagg (2007) mentions. The people from nationalities originally outside Australia are unjustly treated. Thus are more easily imprisoned than a native would be. There is no clear indication if the native is penalized less only by less time in prison or also if the natives are fined in place of imprisoning them. The Aboriginals and the non-aboriginals have different levels of access to as well as support from the court. Some people say that the intensity of crime varies in the areas they are committed but this should still not result into high level of discrimination, in fact discrimination at all, in the justice….

Ethic and Moral Abtract Ethical Research Paper

… It has been found that some lower class families having known of the fact that their children are into sexual activities, and they do not stop their children from doing that because they believe that there is no other option for their family to earn and survive as they don't have a healthy income on their disposal and hence people encouraging their young daughters to get engaged in such illegal sexual activities so that they can bring back income for the house (Mirsky, 2003).

According to the other studies, students who are involved in such activities are 13 to 18-year-old females. It is also observed that girl of these ages are often contacted their instructors so that they can get good grades, etc. The same…. [read more]

Chinese-American Women and Their Experiences With Discrimination Term Paper

… Chinese-American Women and Their Experiences With Discrimination in the Workplace

Case Summary, Methodology, and Literature Review

The Case of Chinese-American Women and Their Experiences with Discrimination in the Workplace: Persevering in the Face of Adversity and Its Price

Analysis using theoretical constructs from the literature review

This analysis concerns the experiences of a professional Chinese-American young woman, "Sue," employed at "Flexco," discussed further below. For the purpose of analysis, I address this question: "What types of experiences did Sue encounter at Flexco that suggested she was being discriminated against as an Asian-American in general and a Chinese woman in particular and are these practices widespread in the American workplace today?

Background and Overview.

The positive manner in which the vast majority of Asian-Americans are treated…. [read more]

Immigration Ethics and Social Responsibility Research Paper

… If these immigrants are sent back to their native countries, perhaps this drug-related violence would increase even more, as those captured would simply be assassinated when nobody would be able to provide funds.

Once again, "customary international law does not permit refoulement (returning someone to a place where her life or freedom are at serious risk), and the United States has an obligation to ensure that it is not repatriating immigrants to places where violence is likely." (Reynolds, 20110). The United States, however, in addition to breaking this law, in no way guarantees the safety of immigrants once they have been deported back to Mexico. Furthermore, as Reynolds states, "If found deportable, the least the U.S. government could do is ensure that they are not…. [read more]

Christians and the Environment Research Paper

… Many people, good Christians included, believe that dealing with some of the suffering of humanity is at a higher level of importance than the environment.

However, the problem with this viewpoint is that the environment underscores all human interactions. An abused and neglected environment is the sign of an abused and neglected psyche of society at large. The two are reflective of one another. In healing the environment, we're healing ourselves. There's a reason why so much violence occurs in neighborhoods where filth and poverty reside: the reasons are multi-faceted, but the environment is a contributing factor.

Thus, as responsible Christians, we owe it to ourselves to bring the environment back to a state where it can be enjoyed and respected once more. As responsible…. [read more]

Ethics and Morality in Advertising to Children Term Paper

… Ethics and Morality in Advertising to Children

The objective of this work is to research and examine the subject of advertising as related to advertising specifically to children in view of morality and ethics in advertising.

The advertising business in today's world is a monstrous industry that uses any and all tactics to gain the attention of the television viewer, radio listener, or the individual who views the billboards seeking to sell something whether it be a product, a service, or an idea. There is however, an issue of ethics and morality that must be addressed in relation to advertising that is specifically focused toward children.

Censorship in Music Term Paper

… The Spanish-born Pablo Casals (1876-1973), who enjoyed a spectacular international career as a violin and cello virtuoso and conductor, was considered to be one of the finest musicians of his day. However, he had a rather harsh assessment of rock and roll in the early 1960s, one that should be viewed through the filter of a person whose life was devoted to European fine-art music.

You want to know what I think of that abomination, rock 'n' roll? I think it is a disgrace. Poison put to sound! When I hear it I feel very sad not only for music but for the people who are addicted to it. I am also very sorry for America-- that such a great country should have nothing better…. [read more]

Communication and Leadership Term Paper

… This does not in any way mean that he was not a man of principle. But men - and women - of principle act in different ways in different generations and cultures because they are constrained in different ways, and King learned to be (and was) a leader in a very specific historical context.

Part of what he learned through the process of dialogue that he carried on both in the African-American community and in the larger community of the South was that non-violence was an ideal strategy. It not only accorded with his own personal beliefs (based in large measure on Christian doctrine) but it was an effective strategy. By choosing to be non-violent when his opposition might well be violent, King knew that…. [read more]

Beowulf as a Hero Lesson 1 Journal Journal

… Beowulf as a Hero

Lesson 1 Journal Entry #

Journal Exercise 1.3A: What makes a hero?

Beowulf is a hero who possesses strength, courage and loyalty; these are the elements that make up a hero during his time. There is a certain heroic code that must be followed in Beowulf and Beowulf follows that code perfectly. During the course of the poem, Beowulf changes as a person -- he matures, and this is a journey that is typical of heroes. Most heroes in literature don't start out as heroes. They may have the qualities lying dormant, but their journey is what turns them into a hero.

When Beowulf goes to fight Grendel, he is a strong and combative leader, but by the end he has…. [read more]

Political Psychology Research Proposal

… ¶ … political psychology has always been, when framed in extreme terms, the extent to which political elites can and do manipulate the general public, as opposed to the extent to which they must pander to the preferences of the mass public. Framed more modestly, this debate pits the view that the mass public is mainly responsive to elite initiatives, against the view that elites' actions are strongly influenced by the public's preferences. Discuss this question critically, drawing broadly upon material from throughout the course.

The American voter is credulous and easily manipulated. American politicians simply wish to get elected and pander to voter prejudices and engage in opinion poll-watching, rather than exercise true leadership. How can both of these sentiments be accurate? An excellent…. [read more]

Dr. King's Letter From Birmingham Jail Term Paper

… Dr. King's Letter from Birmingham Jail

During his extraordinary career, Martin Luther King addressed not only the needs of his negro audience, but also communicated effectively with his opposition in order to make his message of equality and tolerance even more effective. Furthermore, his iconic strategy of non-violent protest created a platform of effectiveness that would not otherwise have been possible. In his "Letter From Birmingham Jail," he uses this platform to argue against his opponents, a group of eight clergymen who considered his non-violent protests in appropriate in the context of a "peaceful" city. Dr. King's letter is also effective in terms of acknowledging the viewpoints advanced by the clergymen and attempting to respond to each on the terms they were delivered to him.…. [read more]

MLK's Letter From Birmingham Jail Thesis

… MLK'S Letter from Birmingham Jail

In Letter from Birmingham Jail, Dr. King displays his argumentative acumen and presents himself not only as an erudite person but also a credible one through the proper word choice, didactic examples and reference to history which he puts across in elegance and flair of a prolific writer. His spiritual leader ethos and not just a learned person become apparent through his discussion of St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine and Jesus. And that of a trustworthy person is also brought out in his comparison of his situation to that of Paul. All this is done so as to gain credibility of the clergymen who accused him in their first letter. Dr. King also uses pathos effectively so as to enable…. [read more]

U.S. Policy Towards Thai Women Sex Trafficking Term Paper

… Sex Trafficking of Thai Women and the U.S. Response

The Incidence of Sex Trafficking of Thai Women in the United States and a Review of Relevant Governmental Policy

In many ways, Thailand continues to be a mysterious and idyllic region of Asia for many Western observers. The primarily Buddhist kingdom of Thailand remains a sociological jewel in many ways among many Southeast Asian nations by virtue of its progressive social policies and egalitarian approach to human rights. As the only Southeast Asian country to escape occupation by the Japanese during World War II or colonization by a European power (the country's name means "Free-land," after all), Thais appear to possess the natural ability to persevere psychologically and economically even during the worst of times, and….

Conservative Political Philosophy Essay

… ¶ … Political Philosophy

Generally, I hold a "modern conservative" political philosophy that emphasizes the value of a free market economic society. In that regard, I believe that certain fundamental governmental controls are necessary but, in principle, government regulation should not seek to impose artificial restraints on economic matters. The state should encourage economic self-responsibility and self-sufficiency and should not seek to balance the natural or earned advantages of some individuals artificially. I believe that the state should uphold public order by removing criminals from free society and that social change should be a gradual process that proceeds with appropriate regard for traditional principles.

World View:

Having lived under three different political systems and experienced life under others in my travels, I have reached the…. [read more]

Substance Abuse Research Paper

… In short, "certain drugs have served as a proxy for racial and ethnic bias," and this has been true throughout American history (Wilson and Kolander, p. 8).

Environmental, social and individual on influences all contribute to drug use, including parents, peers, and the community combined with genetic predisposition, personality traits and individual attitudes and beliefs. Youthful experimentation and rebelliousness are a common reason for trying drugs, which also serve a function in social interactions, particularly drugs like alcohol, cocaine and marijuana. Among poor and inner-city minority youth, "the social milieu of street life leads many people to escalate their drug use" in situations where gangs are also involved in drug sales and distribution. For young people "a strong relationship has been found between drug use…. [read more]

Early Childhood Essay

… Education - Early Childhood


Early Childhood Physical Development and Day Care Facility Safety:

Safety in day care facilities is paramount in importance and encompasses numerous considerations. In that regard, guaranteeing the physical safety of children is one of the most significant requirements in the child care environment. To a large extent, the factors that must be accounted for to ensure the physical safety of children relates to the timeline of physical development in infants and young children.

It is well-known, for example, that very young infants lack any fear of falling because they do not perceive depth and height in a manner that triggers any self- protective mechanism, such as avoiding the edges of elevated surfaces. This is a direct…. [read more]

Invisibility as an Escape From Racial Degradation Term Paper

… Invisibility as an Escape From Racial Degradation

There is no point in blinding yourself to the truth. Don't blind yourself," (Ellison 192); one cannot ignore the racial tensions of the United States for they are much too prevalent in every facet of society. Ever since the birth of the U.S., there has been an overwhelming racial stigma which has lead to the degradation and oppression of African-Americans. Even after the emancipation of the slaves, racial stereotypes continued to plague the African-American community, causing them to fight the idea that they are in some way inferior to their white brethren, "The battle was first waged over the right of the Negro to be classed as a human being with a soul; later, as to whether he….

Graduation Speech Essay

… Graduation Speech

Why should I or anyone else care about the education of African-American women? Are we of African-American heritage actually any different from anyone else? Well my answer is yes. I have spent many years contemplating the issue of what my personal role is in society. Having grown up aware of the impact that gender, race, and class on a person's psyche, I know that self-awareness is the key towards overcoming all obstacles.

As I stand here before you today, I am proud to tell you about who I am and where I come from, in the hopes that you will recognize that my dreams, hopes, and ambitions actually transcend race, class, and gender. When I was five years old, my grandmother told me…. [read more]

Human Development in the Environment Term Paper

… ¶ … Asher Lev

Just as one can develop a sociological analysis of the development of a person in the environment in which he or she was raised and make certain judgments about what influenced that development and how, so can one do the same thing with a fictional character, assuming the author has provide sufficient data that can be used for this purpose. A novel that is detailed enough to make such an analysis and that also involves an interesting milieu in which the central character is raised is My Name Is Asher Lev by Potok (2003).

Lev is a fully developed character living in a community that is largely unfamiliar to most Americans, the Ladover Hassidic community in Brooklyn. This is a highly…. [read more]

Male Role Models, and African-American Juvenile Violence Research Proposal

… ¶ … Male Role Models, and African-American Juvenile Violence, Karen F. Parker and Amy Reckdenwald build upon current research regarding African-Americans, especially those in urban situations, to find that traditional male roll models decrease at-risk African-American youth's probability of becoming involved in juvenile violence. Drawing primarily upon the work of Elijah Anderson -- Code of the Street: Decency, Violence, and the Moral Life of the Inner-City, Parker and Reckdenwald were motivated to conduct the test in order to test the "generality of Anderson's claims more broadly and explore the potential connection between his work and the macrolevel research on urban violence" (711). Thus, the purpose of this study was not only to test the applicability of Anderson's theory, but also to determine how black, male…. [read more]

Conflict Resolution for Indigenous Peoples in the 21st Century

Perhaps as no other time in history, people around the world are reexamining how their countries can into existence and what types of actions were taken to achieve nationhood. In many cases, these reexaminations of the past have required a stark analysis of how indigenous people were adversely affected by these nation-building activities and what can be done to day to make things right. This process has taken place around the world in places such as the United States in their efforts to resolve a collective national guilt over slavery and the Indian Removal Act, as well as in Canada for their treatment of indigenous people. Likewise, Australia is attempting to resolve its own…. [read more]

… Under option four, the regional facility manages both pretrial and convicted inmates, however only portions of the participating jurisdictions continue to operate their own facilities.

Women's Issues When the Term Feminism Interview

… ¶ … Women's Issues

When the term feminism was first used in the United States of America, it was largely used to refer to the pursuit of women to get the right to vote. Later, it became synonymous with the attempts of women to be seen as equals of men in all aspects of life, from wages to family responsibilities to legal rights. In today's society, other issues such as reproductive rights and freedom to make autonomous decisions about such things as abortion, along with the attempts to make men responsible for their families in instances of child support and divorce, have come to the forefront of feminism and the women's movement. While all of these issues are important to the overall concept of feminism,…. [read more]

Adolescents Aspects of Adolescent Development Term Paper

… Teenagers should always feel as though they have adults who are looking out for their best interests, supporting them rather than controlling them.

Certain parenting styles have been shown to be particularly productive with regard to adolescent identity development. Specifically, authoritative mothering is linked to elevated levels of self-esteem, life satisfaction, and decreased rates of depression (Milevsky et al., 2007). Accordingly, mothers should make sure that they impress upon their adolescent proper behavior and societal values, and not be overly lenient. Parenting that is more heavily dominated by the father can be productive although this is less often the case.

It has also been shown that adults can assist adolescents in identity development by engaging them in constructing narratives of their life. By constructing their…. [read more]

Rich Countries Need to Help Essay

… International economic institutions often impose rules and regulations on developing countries that make their living conditions even worse. According to the UNDP Human Development Report in 2005, the gap between rich and poor countries has been increasing in the last sixty years. The report notes that "the richest 50 individuals in the world have a combined income greater than that of the poorest 416 million. The 2.5 billion people living on less than $2 a day -- 40% of the world's population -- receive only 5% of global income, while 54% of global income goes to the richest 10% of the world's population." The report argues that unjust global trade imposed by the rich countries is the primary cause of global inequality. For example, developing…. [read more]

Social Worker Anti-Oppressive Term Paper

… Anti-Oppressive Social Work

Social workers encounter a large number of people who have been marginalized in society, people who are formed by degrees of oppression and who must cope with the results of oppression in their lives every day. Burke and Harrison (1998) state that as social workers, "we have a moral, ethical and legal responsibility to challenge inequality and disadvantage (p. 229) and note that the profession as traditionally made this effort by drawing upon such disciplines as psychology, sociology, history, philosophy, and politics. Recognizing the source of oppression is a good beginning, and when the social worker cannot change the nature of the oppression because it is too widespread and too firmly entrenched, the goal would be to help the client cope.

Burke…. [read more]
