The Ideological of this group called KKK blended in religious prejudice, xenophobia, and white supremacy with conservative moralism. In 1925 this organization had nearly four million members spread all the united States and in some states members had political power.
Reflective Analysis: Racism, hate, and supremacy have existed since the 1900s hundreds, a cruel fact that is always going to predominate in America. Now to this date we visible acts of racism within our actual president Donald Trump against Latinos, and all other ethnicities. Sadly groups like KKK keep promoting racism and hate thought communities of color. People that have grown under the influence and patterns of racism and hate are hard to change.
Self application: This article was interesting because once again history of racism have existed generation through generation. Learning that back in the days racism was more severe against people of color. I sadly learned the way that the United States constitution treated people of color and the inhumanities those human beings had to face where despicable. It’s important to mentioned that even thug racism exist in our present life, the inhumanities people of color experienced are not compatible of the ones in our present. Muennig, P. & Murphy, M. (2011).
Does racism affect health? Evidence from the United States and the United Kingdom. Journal of Health Politics, Policy & Law, 36(1), 187-214. doi:10. 1215/03616878-1191153Summary: Racism in the United States appears to be a higher determinant of health than in difference with the United Kingdom. The differences include certain stratagem that kept U. S black minorities who currently live in strenuous poverty with limited or no access to health care coverage, jobs opportunities or poorly funded schools. Several of these issues contribute to socioeconomic differences between races. Africans born in the United Kingdom have shown lower mortality than the ones in the United States. This disaggregation is in part due to a high number of those born in the East Africa rather than African ancestry. There are some hypotheses that shown statistics in the United States; where lower class whites Americans often occupy middle-class communities. Lower class African Americans on the other side tend to occupy mostly black communities where concentrated poverty, inadequate housing conditions, unhealthy food options, or no job opportunities all these problems have been over generations.
Reflective Analysis: Racism affect health all together no matter our ethnicity or color, in conclusion with different studies it is a possibility that the less racism people experience the healthier life environment and life span will be. Race issues predominate health more in the United States than in the United Kingdom. There are many forms of racism, but the two most common are institutional racism defined as intentional racism, and perceived racism. Even that racism is everywhere this article has shown that Africans in the United Kingdome are healthier than the ones in the United States since they experience less racism.
Self application: This article was very interesting because it gives information in the difference between Africans who live in the United Kingdome with healthier lives than the ones currently here in the United States. It is amazing how racism do affect health, but I will add that racism not only affect African Americans, but all ethnicities instead. Sociology describe racism as a social construction. Race is not an established fact, instead is a concept which describes Social meanings and racial categories. Here in the United States it is more counted as who is Black or White, but in Mexico, South America, Asia or other countries racism is different. It is very interesting to learn the different ways people faces racism not only in the United States, but all over the world. Rodenborg, N. A. , & Boisen, L. A. (2013). Aversive racism and intergroup contact theories: Cultural competence in a segregated world. Journal of Social Work Education, 49(4), 564-579.
Summary: Aversive racism the consciously knowing, and profess that all humans beings are equal, and subconsciously judge and treat some groups based on their ethnicity or gender. Segregation still exist until today maybe not so much like in the times of slavery, but we still see in some different areas were the social economics impact affect. Ethnicity, gender, and social status segregation it is a fact of our daily life in most areas in the United States. Data have prove that communities live in segregated areas, due to the fact of their social status or race. People tend to conform to choose a course of action that the majority favors or that is socially acceptable. Segregated social patterns sometimes implicates their cultural competence.
Reflective Analysis: Aversive Racism exists in the United States and other countries. There have been experiments where race, color and gender showed evidence of the existence of aversive racism in the behavior of whites people toward Blacks and Latinos with emphasis in unintentional discrimination in selection of job interviews and hiring. There are several forms of aversive discrimination that do exist in our present life for example sexism, homophobia, and disablism. Aversive Racism exists in Mexico too. Discrimination used by different sociological groups for example people with a high social status towards indigenous people. Racism adopts different modern day expressions, which are reflected in simulated discriminatory practices towards ethnic minorities, gender difference or social status. Racism has been a problem from generation through generation and impacts people who are vulnerable.
Self-application: This article is interesting because it question me of why racism affect many people this days. In my opinion is ignorance from the predators who take in some ways advantage of the socioeconomic situation or education of the victims involved. People face racism everywhere and in many different ways. It can happen in any country directly, indirectly or even in social media. Racism includes discrimination, prejudice, or hatred directed at someone because of their religion, gender preference, ethnicity, or national origin. People often confused racism with acts of harassment or abuse, but racism doesn’t need to involve violence or intimidating behavior. Rollins, J. A. (2017).
The depth of racism in the U. S. : What it means for children. Pediatric Nursing, 43(5), 213-214Racism is development of attitudes in groups with superiority toward an inferiority group based on skin color or race. Nobody is born being racist, sexist, or with other oppressive attitudes. In psychology Erikson’s theory believed that social interaction and experiences played a decisive role that impacts in further growth. In each stage of life people encounter with developmental conflict that makes a huge impact later in the functioning and further develop in life. At age three children have learned to designate people into who is good or bad also children can show signals of being influenced in what they hear or see surround them. They may even Pre-prejudice toward others based on race. Racism also has impacted the health of those who migrate to America. Research shown that repeated exposure to racial discrimination can cause stress, depression or other illness after time. Reflective Analysis: Experienced racism at a young stage of life prejudice and determined our children future. Exposed signs of racism or other oppressive attitudes to our children will develop in how they manage challenges in their future. In each stage of life people are encounter with a developmental conflict that further impacts life functioning and will lead to virtues or weakness. If we educate and conduct effective parenting classes could improve in a healthy coo parenting. Evidence indicate that families’ responses to their racial discrimination experiences may influence parenting behaviors.
Self Application: I have not experience racism as a child, but I strongly believe that if we promote different ways to educate people and avoid ignoring signs of racism in or young children we will lead families to a healthier life style. Effective co parenting and educational material plays a tremendous roll to obtain better results. The future of our kids it is pretty much in our hands. Parents and teachers takes a very important role in the lives of our children and we are the major responsible of leading them in to a healthier generation.
