Race and Racism Fall16 Gr.544

About this class

This course will introduce students to the concepts of “race” and racism from the perspective of biological and cultural anthropology. The first part of the course focuses on the distribution of human biological variation and compares this variation to contemporary ideas about “race”. The second part traces the historical development of the concept of “race” and the role that slavery, colonialism, science and the media have played in the dissemination of this concept. Students will also be introduced to the concept of white privilege. The third part of the course will explore the present-day reality of racism through case studies from various countries, with a focus on Canada and the United States. Special attention will also be paid to the effects of racism on children and adolescents.

           Harris et al’s (2012) study investigated the relationship between racial discrimination and health service use as well as experience amongst people living in New Zealand. Racism is determined to be a stressor that can have physical and mental health consequences, its exposure has been found to lead to general mistrust and avoidance of dominant culture institutions, including the health care system (Harris et al., 2012).

             Freie’s (2014) study looks at the development of social identity through high school juniors. According to the author, white privilege and disadvantages of the student’s working classes are hidden by discussions of normality. Freie observed a school he names River City High School which has predominantly white students (98.5%) from working-class families. To collect his findings, he used observation and occasionally participated in classes and school-based activities of River City High for nine months to collect data.

Davis and Stevenson (2006) study investigated the relationship between racial socialization experiences and depression symptoms such as lethargy, low self-esteem, cognitive difficulties, social introversion, irritability, guilt, pessimism, sad mood, instrumental helplessness, and overall depression amongst black youth. The authors hypothesized that racial socialization contributes significantly to the depression of black youth.

The Poisonous Relationship between Ignorance and Immigration                 Recently, a study made by Douglas L. Palmer (1996) drew my attention. In the study, he wanted to find an explanation for the amount of hatred and hostility towards immigrants Canadian citizens can show.

Heinze & DeCandia’s (2011) study was performed to retest an experiment that had been previously conducted in 2008. Being that the initial experiment was not of empirical nature, the authors decided to recreate it in order to obtain measurable outcomes. Thusly, this study aimed to determine whether the teaching of certain themes (White privilege and racism) will positively influence students’ thoughts and attitudes regarding these themes.

The news article I found and have chosen to discuss is an opinion piece pertaining to the discrimination of indigenous people and their youths. The author of the piece discusses how ignorant thinking and false opinions on indigenous people lead to their ongoing struggle and discrimination and racism. The discussion she wishes to have on the matter is one that I see a lot of, which is certainly not surprising considering I am enrolled in a Race and Racism class.

The article from Huffington Post emphasizes on racist actions done by the Toronto Blue Jays’ fans during the game opposing the Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles. The Toronto Blue Jays’ fans were screaming racist comments on players of the Cleveland Indians, Hyun Soo Kim and Adam Jones. Hyun Soo Kim, native from South Korea, and Adam Jones, from California, both received racial slurs hurled from Toronto’s fans in the crowd. Fans tend to drink during these games because of the competition related to it.

        In the article “An Open Letter to the Woman Who Told My Family to Go Back to China”, a reporter called Michael Luo describes a situation where he, and his family, were told to “go back to China.” He also says that this was not the first time this happens, and that even if he was born in the U.S., he still feels like an outsider. This article had me particularly interested since it reminded me of a time when a group of people muttered “konnichiwa” while they were passing my Asian friend and I. She is not even Japanese and was born here in Canada.

When Europeans came to America, tribes of aboriginal people were already in place, and Canada was no exception. Many of these aboriginal were killed or tossed aside, as they were thought to be not fully human. Now, this time is over, but the effects of the shared history between the two nations are still present today.

Everyone knows that racism, still today, impacts many people's life and can change who they are forever. In the article "Daily Tournament of Racism in the Classroom", the author, Divya Talwar, reveals the horrible story of the 14-year-old little girl named Khadeja Fahat. She has been bullied by other students only because she wore a headscarf and looked different. After Khadeja's story, it reminded me of a concept we discussed in my Race and Racism class, which is stereotypes.

This article from the Montreal Gazette highlights an issue with a Dollarama Halloween decoration, more specifically, a black severed foot shackled in chains. A customer left a message with the stores head office requesting the decoration be removed because it could be interpreted as racist. Some people agreed with this customers action, while others deemed it to be too ‘politically correct’ or an over reaction.

In this assignment I will be talking about white privileges and its power because it is a subject that really concerns me so I found an article that explains the concept and its advantage/consequences. To begin with, I am a woman who is always bothered by inequality and I am frustrated to know that because of my gender, I have less chances to get a prestigious job or to get a promotion. That being said, seeing other minorities get discriminated because of white privileges really affects me.

In the article ‘’The Baltimore Uprising and the Civil Rights Movement of the Millennial Generation’’, Hettie Williams tackles institutional racism in the context of the Baltimore riots. This article directly relates to my class The Myth of Race and Reality of Racism as it clearly displays the same belief of the existence of institutional racism in North America. Unfortunately, the point of view presented seems to be biased and goes against the reality of our society.

The article I found is titled “Binge drinking in and out of college: An examination of social control and differential association on binge drinking behaviors between college students and their non-college peers.” This article is about excessive drinking behavior in both college and non-college groups. It’s looking at whether one is more likely to drink in college or out of college at the same age. However, The most prominent predictor of individual drinking is peer behavior.

            The wage gap between men and women in the workplace is an issue that has been around for decades. The issues originate from women occupations being undervalued thus getting paid less than men with “better” jobs. Currently, women have equal positions and are still being paid less than men for doing the exact same job. This is for many unjustifiable reasons. One being that women are allocated to positions within a company that are generally lower paying.

Is the government contributing to an epidemic that they are trying to cure? The U.S. government bankrolls a program called SNAP. The SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) aka Food Stamps is a  federally  funded program that gives monies to poor people to buy food. The goal of this program is to combat hunger in low income people. This is an admirable goal but what about its side effects?

Aging is a very important social topic because everyone, if fortunate, will live long and grow older within their own society. How this is then perceived and the lives of older people is highlighted in this article which talks about aspects, both in today’s time and the future, of people of old age in the Western world. More specifically, the nation of Poland is studied using socio-cultural and historical data as well as quantitative data by means of statistics and polling. The aging process includes biological, psychological, and social aspects (Mucha, Kryzyzowski, 2010, p. 247).

Everybody knows that racism is still a very important and prominent issue in our society. Everyday, people of color or other ethnicities not white are mistreated by law enforcement for no apparent reason. Other than the color of their skin, the law enforcement mainly rely on the situational and community factors when contemplating if nonlethal force is needed or not to apprehend a suspect. This is a very important topic because all citizens should be treated equally by law enforcement no matter what race or community they may come from.

In recent years the concern about childhood vaccinations has become a focus. For the most part in first world countries vaccinate-preventable diseased have greatly been reduced through routine vaccinated programs (Harmsen 2013). Despite the prevention these vaccines have had for people there are still parents who are apprehensive when it comes to giving their children these same vaccinations, there is even a small portion of parents who simply refuse. If these vaccines have been proven to help saves the lives of children, why wouldn’t parents want to give their children the upper hand?

Parents across the United States have been refraining their children from getting vaccinations. In September of 2016, a study came out that probed parents on why they are or are not vaccinating their children, are they solely thinking about their child’s health, or the health of the nation? The greater the number of parents that do not vaccinate their children increases the risk for everyone against controllable and avoidable diseases.

Undocumented minors are people too and the rights of these people is what the DREAM act fights for. The article in question does not necessarily focus on the goal of the movement but rather the identity of those involved. By establishing that advocates of the act are recognizable, complex individuals, the article shows a different and important aspect of the movement.

What is healthy? We know what it isn’t. Unhealthy is eating french fries three times a day, only eating fruit in the form of Jell-O, or drinking soda instead of water. Despite labing these behaviors as unhealthy without much thought, defining healthy can be much harder. Is nutrition based solely on calories, or is it about good fats vs. bad fats? There are so many questions when it comes to health. In hopes of cracking the code to health, researchers looked at some of the unhealthiest individuals -- the obese, specifically among Hispanic immigrants. What they found was shocking.

The wounds of the battlefield can truly follow you home.  Although the period of testing is nowhere near as long as the WW2, or Vietnam War the veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan have had many difficulties with PTSD.  The findings in the Clinical Psychological Review by Schnurr and Lonne conclude that veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are likely to experience poorer functioning and lower objective living conditions and satisfaction and have a lesser quality life.  This staggering conclusion really makes you wonder how deep the sacrifice is for war veterans.

When the term “abrortion” comes up in a normal conversation between anyone a heated argument usually occurs. It is very hard for a solution to come about when most of the country is 50/50 about an important social issue. As this issue effects the male and female race it is mainly argued by the people that actually have the choice which are females. When it comes to voting women have won their rights and is currently not the problem, the new problem is abortion. Who is against is and who is for it and is it a personal choice?

In previous years over 11,000 international police officers have been deployed in 18 United Nations peace operations. These officers have come from 100 countries. Over a period of time these officers have seen work such as traditional monitoring responsibilities and have started to see more of a broad array of police development and sector reform tasks. The issue with this is that the structures, resources and skill sets of international police do not match their mandates.

Many people do not know what it really means to have a sense of belonging, especially in the transition from high school to college. How about if the question was about how students with invisible disabilities develop a sense of belonging? The social science research article that I will be talking about covers just that. For many students, establishing a sense of belonging contributes to help advance students’ self-advocacy, mastery of the student role, and social relationships.

  Racial profiling is an issue that has been plaguing this country for centuries, however today lives are being taken for the blatant ignorance of the ones who are supposed to keep us safe. Black Lives Matter is a movement that promotes the importance of the lives of African American people being executed by police. Eric Garner is an example of a young black unarmed man being targeted and killed for simply no reason at all.

In society, today, females have a higher graduation rate than males, meaning that females tend to have a higher level of education than males in the working industry. Although this is true females still tend to earn less money than males. Occupations that are generally outnumbered by women are paid less than occupations outnumbered by men. This gender inequality between occupations creates a large wage gap between males and females today.

What first drew me to this post was the tittle " Empowerment of Black Lives Matter: Race, Crime and Employment”, because the BLM movement has been really impacting the US right now. By talking about it more and more we incite people to think and talk about it which, in my opinion will help bring light of the problem that we currently have. After I read the article I wasn’t shock of what I read, but I was still very disappointed. In my anthropology class “The Myth of Race and The Reality of Racism” and in my “African American Literature” English class, I’ve learn plenty about the injustice that racism bring to people of colour. I am astonished when someone believe racism doesn’t exist, there’s people that are discriminated because they have a different skin tone, just because you don’t get affected by it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Some people might say, “we all have equal opportunities” but this article proves that we might have equal opportunity but we don’t have the same obstacle that make us achieve these opportunities. As I remember in my anthropology class, we’ve talk about racial profiling and we’ve watch the 13th, where it talked about mass incarceration and how the population of the prison has a particular “Race” that are majority. This shows, a certain race is treated less favorable because of racial profiling by police force.

What drew me to this post is the subject which is drugs being legalized or not. This post made me think about this issue and how important is to figure out why this drug is not legal everywhere even taught scientist found that it is really beneficial especially for certain sickness. I did not realize that marijuana was legal in Colorado and it is interesting to see that there is a conflict between the decision of that state and the whole country and it is true that at some point it can cause a serious shift. I was not surprised by the fact that legalizing the drugs have a good impact on the economy because before, the government could not have a marge of benefit because it was illegal but now they can because they have the control on it. In every ways, I think that this article is relevant and I totally agree with it. I think that there is not point to disagree with this law. If your do not want to do drugs, you have the right not to, but it should be legalized in all the states because it can help a lot of people. Finally, it can link this concept of drugs not being legalized to racism because a lot of people connect illegal behaviour to race and black people are often the target of it.

The title of your post caught my attention right away, "Way of decreasing the incidence of child abuse and neglect". I find that this is a topic that not many people want to talk about due to the nature of this. This is one of the first posts that I have seen regarding child abuse and neglect, so congratulation to you for choosing this topic. Personally, I find that it is important to find ways to stop child abuse and neglect. There are so many children out there that are being subjected to different types of abuse and suffering from neglect, all from a young age. I agree that there needs to be a strong relationship between a child and their parent, I learn this in a childhood psychology class last year. I was surprised when you wrote that the relationship depends heavily on the social support, that was something that I just never thought about before. I wished that you had described the four measures of service availability a little more because it is something interesting and is most likely worth knowing. I liked how you linked this article to a real life experience. The story was nice and I find that it related to your topic about how connecting to the neighborhood and finding out the services will help out the family. Something that stood out to me was that the family was from Burundi. You mentioned how the children were mistreated when they would visit others in the community and that the parents worried about their safety. This part stood out to me and made me think about a TedTalk that I saw in my Race and Racism class. In the TedTalk, the speaker's parents always worried for their safety because he was an African-American and that people will always treat them differently than other people. It made me sad that some people will treat others so horribly because they are not from the community. Anyway, your post got me very curious and I will go read this article.

What drew me to the blog about the article was the title. I found it interesting because binge drinking is something that people in my age group do, so to have a study done on testing it, seems quite intriguing. I completely agreed with the article as it says that people around the age of eighteen to twenty-two years old usually binge drink, no no one ever suspects anything other than that teenagers drink. I believe that the blog had some good key points about the article and helped explain the study that was provided in the article. I personally think that this topic relates to implicit and explicit racism and the stereotypes faced with that. In class we discussed the topic of implicit racism which means that a person does not necessarily know that they are being racist. Just like in the text, many adults just assume that teenagers binge drink because they are teenagers. They don’t necessarily take into account that other factors may come into play such as: peer behaviour. Explicit racism is when people are flat out racist and don’t care what other people think or say. For example: in the blog about the summary, the author mentioned that teenagers around the age of eighteen to twenty-two years old who are in school binge drink the same amount as others who aren’t in school full time. A lot of adults flat out blame that if they aren’t in school, they have more time to drink and the study in the article proved that to be wrong; which I found extremely fascinating.

What drew me to this post is the word “Escalating” in the title. As my initial thoughts were, were not creating laws against minorities, and were diffidently not going back to slavery. Then I wondered if were actually escalating, probably not. Racism still exists and it's still a problem, but saying that cops are targeting minorities “for no apparent reason” is not a claim that shouldn't be made. Apart from that, I enjoy the use of stats in this post as it shows inequality. This post made me; it made me think about systematic racism and how it takes part in the law enforcement department. As we all know that race is a social construct that was created in the United States during the 17th century. This post has “how bad it actually is” in the text, yet never gives examples and cases on how bad it is. Of course these words alludes to individual cases of racist cops, which the media feeds on. This post shows that cops have a greater chance of using “coercive authority” which sounds vague. As the definition of “Coercive authority (also referred to as penalty authority): refers to motivating staff by negative reinforcement such as fear of losing a bonus,” wiki. A cop’s job is to give penalty when you break the law, and so Cops are more likely to do their job? In conclusion the words such as “escalating”, “how bad it actually is”, and “coercive authority” makes this post sound like law enforcements are on a minority rampage.

I was very intrigued by your post on the current gender wage gap situation. You seem to follow the very popular view that women are somehow paid less then men for the same work. I decided to write this comment in the hope that my point of view might change your perspective on the issue. While my class ''The Myth of Race and the Reality of Racism'' mainly focuses on racism, male privilege and sexism are often mentioned. To be honest I don't believe that women are actually paid less than men for the same work. The gender wage gap, while technically true, is biased and ignores a lot of important factors. The most important one being the number of hours worked. It is clearly proven that men work more hours on average than women. This easily explains why the annual average income of a men is higher. When you say that women are undervalued in the workplace, you're not stating a fact, you're simply making an assumption based on a wide and unacurate statistic. The assumption that because there is inequality in wages it automatically means that there is discrimination. It is a fallacy. There is no evidence that proves that women in 2016 are paid less then men for the same job with the same education with the same number of hours worked. You state the example of nurses, which are usually paid less than doctors. You state that nurses are paid less than doctors because most of them are females. It is an assumption that cannot be proven. What can be proven is that doctors receive more education than nurses, which can easily explain their higher salary. But to put facts aside I would like to give my point of view to finish. In North America, there is what we call the equality of opportunities. No matter our gender, we all have the same opportunities. I believe the only reason why men earn more money in general than women is because men and women simply make different choices and want different things from life. Men, from my point of view, tend to be more attracted to work life while women are usually more attracted to family life. This could possibly explain the fact that men work more hours than women. Gender discrimination is an assumption, I believe it's simply because men and women are different.

Very interesting topic! What drew me to your post was your title “Not all battle wounds are physical,” not only because I am interested in that subject, but also because I personally know somebody who is affected by PTSD. I am also always interested in reading more articles about it and your post convinced me to read this article. I found it very interesting to learn that deployments are much more frequent and longer in the Middle-East than in the Vietnam War, and although it can be argued that Vietnam and WWII were much bloodier wars, the difference in deployment length could definitely make the current wars harsher on veterans. Another point I found astonishing is how the advancement in medical technologies has had inverse effects on wounded soldiers, since often times battle wounds are debilitating. When you said that veterans more likely to experience poor functioning, lower living conditions, satisfaction, and a lesser quality life, it reminded of the concept of discrimination discussed in me class because of how the Government and even some of the population ignore the problems faced by a specific group because it is more convenient for them to do so. What I find even more troubling is that these problems come from the very Government that put these soldiers out there.

This post made me realize how society in general is not aware or concerned about the problems that minorities face every day and how many think that segregation is not a problem anymore. I did not realize that black people were still facing discrimination when it comes to buy a house which is very surprising to hear. Moreover, it is outrageous to see that we still live in a world where people get discriminated due to their skin colour. There is a reason why people from different “races” are bound to live in poorer neighborhoods and it is because they do not have the same opportunities as others. Many face discriminations when it comes to find a job therefore, they end up having low paying jobs.

What you said about racial segregation made me think of the concept of white privileges, where people are often not aware of them because nobody talks about them. One way to stop white privileges is by talking about it and make people aware that many are not as lucky like for example when it comes to buy their dream house. By making white people realize their privileges and by teaching to young white children that skin colour does not define someone could significantly decrease racial segregation.

When I first saw the title I automatically knew the article was going to address the issue of sexual preference (discrimination among partners). I think the issue is pretty interesting, and definitely something we should discuss. Actually, the post made me think about an issue that I had not considered before which is that “discrimination among partners” is more a question of sexual racism than simply a personal preference. To be honest, I had always seen this issue as only a matter of personal preference, and the article really made me look at it from a different angle. In fact, I found really interesting to learn that according to the study made in Australia (Callander, D., Newman, C.E. & Holt, 2015), almost every factors associated with men’s racist attitudes were related to their attitudes toward sexual racism. I think it shows very well how racism is still a part of our society, but simply in a more subtle way. In fact, when you said that those “preferences" are just like sexual racism, it made me think of the concept of “new racism” which is also known as “modern racism”. The new racism is a more subtle racism which is implicit, and often found in text messages, talks, or job interviews for example. In this case, it fits very well with the issue since sexual racism is really implicit. I think a lot of people also think that it is simply a question of preference since a lot of guys will talk about it very openly. After all, the way this post was clearly presenting the issue made me want to learn more, and read the original post.
