Most admit that stigma does surround those who are mentally ill and prejudice can follow these individuals. Despite this knowledge, the connection between perception, mental illness, and gender is usually not addressed. Though many are unaware, the gender of an individual has a major impact on other’s perception of their illness.

The article Race to College: The “Reverse Gap” written by William Mangino argues that a reverse gap exists in the college educational system. Mangino does an experiment using a group of 12,576 people of five different races but only focusing of whites and blacks. The author wants to break the stereotype that black people are drop outs and white people are high graduates.

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.

the topic that I will discus is racism that can affect children. Children are young, impressionable and most often are not educated on the topic of race and could possibly use innapropriate words that they are unware that they are offensive. In this article a little girl (white American) was playing on the play ground with a boy (African American) in Maplewood N.J. and she told him he wasn’t allowed to go on a certain ride because of the colour of his skin tone.

Though deinstitutionalization occurred many years ago, the effects of the lost care still impact a large amount of the population. With a large population of mentally ill who are either incarcerated or homeless, solutions need to be considered. In the article, “The Modern Asylum,” this issue was addressed and its importance must be brought to the attention of the general public.

For the past 18 years of my life, I have classify human beings into “races”. Why would I categorize people with skin color? In my opinion, it was just easier and obvious until one day I realized that human classification was a whole lot more complex than I thought. In the following text, we will see how many variables can make human classification injudicious.

It’s simple, isn’t it? We can see the things that make humans different from each other. Hair texture and color, body proportions, and skin tone. These differences are so obvious and easy,  how can they be wrong? Well, they can be wrong because ‘races’ are not as black and white as people may think. By just using traits that are convenient to our eye, we create categories that are very subjective and not at all concrete. Since the traits we like to use are not consistent, the lines between ‘races’ become very blurred.

  Growing up, race was never a concept that I fully understood because it simply confused me and so I never really bothered to touch on the subject due to its sensitivity. Belonging to the Caucasian ethnicity, I never really experienced such issues that come with racism, so touching on the concept of “race” and how it impacts our society was never really a concern. However, through; personal experiences that my friend has been through, Jared Diamond’s article called “Race Without Color” and class lectures, I will be discussing why race is so arbitrary.

<p align="center">I will be writing about how difficult it is to live with brothers and sisters of different backgrounds. When we go places and do things in public as a family, people tend to give us dirty looks and place judgement. I believe that people cannot comprehend things that are different, and it goes hand-in-hand with the inequalities visual minorities are faced with. In Diamond`s article ``Race Without Color¨, he writes about how different skin color is a result of the geographical area in which an individual is situated in.

Racism is  a very present issue in the world that we live in. We hear, talk or maybe even experience it everyday. Learning about race and racism has already opened my eyes and I am already starting to look at the world differently. What has shocked me the most so far in this anthropology class is realizing that race is nothing but a social construct. They are beliefs that have been imposed on us that do not even exist scientifically. If everybody stopped believing in races and racism then it would not exist and therefore not be a social issue.
