Many of the LGBTQ youth community face discrimination from their peers every day. Certain activities and that the community engages in can increase their empowerment and have a positive impact on their well-being.

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.

The NFL will not let teams show their support for officers that risk their lives everyday, but they let individual players kneel during our countries national anthem. Players are able to stick up for black lives but not officers that have been killed.

Many waitresses and waiters are sexually harassed while they are at work by customers, manager and coworkers. A lot of workers are sexually harassed verbally and physically.

I am researching the issue of terrorism in America. The main topic I will be focusing on is whether or not Muslims should be temporarily banned from immigrating into the United States.

Gun control is not a new topic. Some blame the people and other blame the gun. What is the solution? Looking at our society everyone has different experiences with gun, some were raised to see gun as a way of protection and to respect the power that it held while other viewed guns as dangerous and unacceptable. When we look at a solution to lower crime rates with gun violence people feel that putting stronger restriction will help, but it doesn’t. So what is the solution?

For centuries, race was believed to be a legit basis for the social classification of groups. Although it is scientifically proven that race does not exist in the human genome, people still choose to believe it is real. This is due to the fact that " what is defined as real its real in its consequences" according to the Thomas theorem. As stated in class, the dominant group imposes the concept of race because it benefits them. Because of this, people are negatively affected by this social concept.

During the last two weeks of class, I learned that human beings should not be classified into "race" since it is not biological, meaning that it is society that decides whether races exist or not. However we discusses in clss and wondered why people always want to know where other people with different origins come from. For example, I have a Black friend that was born in Africa, nut now lves here in Québec. when we are togetherhe often gets asked where he is from and people always skip me due to my skin color which they assume I come from Canada since I am white.

          When my family and I moved to Quebec from Ontario, I was still a little young to actually care in any way about how a person looked or where they came from, but let’s just say the part of my neighbourhood I grew up in was not very racially diverse. In Elementary School, I was quite obviously part of the visible minority since the school was probably 95% white. But when I joined the High School in the “less favorable” part of my neighbourhood, things started to change.
