Race and Ethnicity

By James Collins:
There is a elaborate make up covering the ongoing issue of Race and Ethnicity within these United States of America. This covering of the racial and ethnic discrimination is set in place by the controlling powers of our nation’s government, and there is a need for the countries cultural groups to push for social change. This country was built and founded by numbers of diverse peoples. They all started out in this land as minorities who were dominated by power seeking supremacist looking to gain freedom from oppression from some other controlling power. As an African American male I have felt the pain and lived through the damages caused by race and ethnical categorizing of my people. This type of social organization has been put on all the cultural aspects of our nation’s poor people.

This racial makeup of the United States is not invisible it has just become a norm of society’s population. Here is a list with some researched demographics of racial and ethnic categorizing:
·         3.1 White American
·         3.2 Black American
·         3.3 Asian American
·         3.4 Two or more races
·         3.5 American Indians and Alaska Natives
·         3.6 Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders
·         3.7 Some other race.

The truth is out, and the question is if you are a concerned people; when it come to race and ethnicity in America put in place by the dominate powers of our society. Will the people of the most powerful and influencing nation on earth remain invisible under the “the power of an illusion “? How can we change race and ethnicity in the U.S.A.

  1. I had a good time reading this article about inequality in America between men and women. I think that it is good for America that women are becoming educated because the women, who are often responsible for the home, can now help educated the kids. I think that men are struggling to compete with women because males often get distracted with activities such as sports and music. I thought that it was interesting that studies show that “women not only perform better but they spend more time studying” and I’d like to see where this statistic came from. Overall, I thought it was a very good article and I think it is important that women get educated not just for themselves, but for the rest of society too. Thank you Daniel for choosing this topic.
