Caughy, O’Campo and Muntaner’s (2004) study observed the relationship between how African American parents experienced racism and on how was their preschooler children’s mental health. The authors also examined the influence of the families’ neighborhoods on the two other variables named above. The authors hypothesized that the African-American parents’ experience of racism and how they responded to it had an effect on their children’s development and mental health. They also wanted to study if the neighborhood’s conditions had any influence on the other variables.

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.

I recently read an article in the Montreal Gazette that talked about the fear black people are experiencing concerning the police brutality happening in the U.S.A. This made me reflect on how racism and fear of people who look different is still an issue nowadays.

For the last few weeks, I started to think that the concept of race was a really odd one. Why would we, humans, keep perpetuating the false idea that we are all different, only because of our skin color, hair texture, or eyes shape? Like Jared Diamond claims in his article “Race Without Color” and as we saw in class, there is no biological dissimilarities between the different “races”, and it is illogical to classify humans in categories since “we could have classified races based on any number of geographically variable traits” (Diamond, 1994, para. 37).
