In Denton Callander, Christy E. Newman and Martin Holt’s (2015) study talks about the sexual racism on social media in the LGBT community but more precisely at men that identify as gay or bisexual. They check if there was any correlation between the attitude towards sexual preference, multiculturalism, sexual racism, ethnicity, education degree and sexual identity. It was mentioned in the article that people who had a preference towards certain ethnicity or a “no dating rule” towards a certain ethnicity is considered as sexual racism.

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.

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.

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.

So Halloween is coming soon, everyone is looking for idea what to be. It’s that time of the year, where Halloween shops pops up to sell theie ridiculous expensive costume. People in Canada are outraged because some of these shops are selling “indigenous” costumes and they want to the company to stop manufactured these costumes. Which I completely understand why they’re frustrated about this.  I personally think they should stop selling and making those costume, because people will act it out and pretend to be an indigenous person.
