...Discrimination Laura Smalt Eth/125 03/10/13 Winnie Mason Discrimination When I think of discrimination I think of race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexuality, and religion. We will learn what discrimination is, how it is different from prejudice and stereotyping. Also what are the causes of discrimination and how it affects a person or persons? What is discrimination? Discrimination is the denial of opportunities and equal rights to individuals and groups because of prejudice or for other arbitrary. If an employer refuses to hire you as a computer technician because you are a Native American and computer illiterate, this is not discrimination. Now, if an employer refuses to hire you because they feel that you are incompetent and they do not give you the chance to see if you are qualified, this is discrimination (Schaefer, 2012). You have to know and understand discrimination before you can know when discrimination is used. As for myself, I have never seen discrimination used. Would you consider an individual that has a phobia of midgets as discrimination? I am curious to know because my general manager has a phobia of midgets. I believe that it could be considered as discrimination, because she is not giving that person a chance regardless of their height. How do you know when an employer is not hiring you because of discrimination? Even if you ask the reason you are not hired, they can make up a reason to satisfy you or tell you what they think you want to hear...

...Week 9 Final Assignment ETH/125 October 12, 2013 Dr. Regina Pacheco, Ed.M., PhD. Week 9 Final Assignment My experience in this Culture Diversity course has given me a new insight and thought provoking information that has helped me to relate and understand diversity in a new and different way than I had before. Diversity can be such an interesting topic. When one mentions the word “diversity” several things come to mind. An most often, the first thing that comes to mind is the diverse culture, right here in America. To gain a better understanding of all the different cultures around the World. A person could spend their lifetime traveling around the world, from one culture to another. Why do that? When all one has to do is sit back and take in the daily occurrences and experience everything around them. Right here in America. It is hard to find a country more culturally diverse than our very own, and yet we fail to see it. There are several reasons why one could fail to see all this diversity, whether it be a lack of understanding or just a lack of willingness to understand. For a country that is called “the melting pot” (Schaefer, 2012, p.24), we certainly still have a prevalent degree of prejudice and discrimination. Some would call it a lack of insight and willingness to grow, I prefer to call it ignorance and fear. Fear of differences and change. Diversity is the inclusion of different types of people from different races and culture in a group of...

Final Project Eth/125

...Final Project ETH/125 October 16, 2013 Final Project • What information about diversity in the United States has helped you better understand or relate to others in ways that you may not have in the past? During this class I found it interesting that I was noticing interracial couples more often. While I do not have a prejudice against this, this class opened my eyes to what is really out in the world. While I am very happy to see this I also know that as long as society chooses to label people and hold stereotypes as truths there will always be more to accomplish with regards to discrimination and prejudice. Learning about diversity also helped me to recognize discrimination and prejudice. It is our diversity that makes the United States such a great county. We need to protect this diversity and fight against discrimination and prejudice. I speak up now because of learning about how this country was founded on diversity. I wish to change the mentality of people as much as I can so they too can understand the diversity of the United States. • Have you learned something new about your own racial, ethnic, or cultural history? While I view myself as an American, I did learn about who I am. I was especially interested in my mother’s ancestry. I had a chance to talk to my mother about this. While much of my Great Grandfather’s history is lost we do know that he was married to a Alkonkin Indian Squaw. My mother an I have decided to do more research on her...

Eth 125 Final Project

...Final Project Joey O'Neill ETH 125 April 28, 2013 Dr. June Terpstra Final Project * * Mostly, I now have a better understanding of the diversity within groups that would be different from the ones that I am considered to be in. I have seen groups of people that are all grouped as one but are actually more individual than meets the eye. An example of this is the differences within the Jewish community. According to Schaefer (2012), “The Judaic faith embraces several factions or denominations that are similar in their roots but marked by sharp distinctions. No precise data reveal the relative numbers of the three major groups. Part of the problem is the difficulty of placing individuals in the proper group. For example, it is common for a Jew to be a member of an Orthodox congregation but consider him- or herself Conservative. The following levels of affiliation are based on a 2010 national survey of Jewish Americans: * _ Orthodox—10 percent _ Conservative—24 percent _ Reconstructionist—2 percent _ Reform—26 percent _ just Jewish—23 percent * _ not sure—1 percent” (p. 337). * * This has given me a better understanding of this group’s diversity and made me realize that is the choice of the individual to follow their desired path. One thing new I learned about my own racial cultural history is that it is a lot easier for this group to hide within its own kind than it is for others. Because of the volume of people that fall into...

Eth 125 Final

...Final Project Nathan Schmidt ETH/125 December 22, 2013 Howard Snider Final Project There was a great deal of new information about diversity available during this course. There was never had much of a chance to learn about other cultures considering the current environment. Growing up in Salt Lake City Utah, which is almost entirely Caucasian, particularly in the more wealthy areas, diversity in cultural and racial systems was almost non-existent. The area is also not very mixed religiously, being almost entirely dominated by the Mormon Church. People of the catholic faith are in the minority in the area. This can give a point of view on discrimination that is not as common among Caucasian males as it is among females and people of other races in the United States. The interest in history meant that there was a great deal of familiarity with the history of discrimination, but the realization that many of those struggles still persist today was never appreciated. Learning more about the current conditions of the various races, particularly the difference in salary has helped foster the understanding that discrimination is still very present in today’s society. The presence of discrimination has also helped with understanding the current situation. As part of the racial, cultural, and gender benefited groups, there was no real discriminatory experience related to these aspects, but struggles with disability and membership in the religious minority makes this...

Eth/125 Diversity Final

...Individual Final ETH/125 Diversity can be such a broad and interesting topic. Often when one mentions diversity they think of the different racial groups that they encounter on a daily basis. The United States, the country we call home, is one of the most diverse countries ever. Some people may not see all the diversity because they do not understand or are not willing to understand, or maybe they are just too busy with their daily lives. But if everyone was to just pay attention to the things they encounter and the people they interact with, they could really learn a lot. Since taking this class I have learned so much about the struggles that different cultures are faced with and it is so disturbing because it is something that they cannot even change, it is just who they are. Since our country is so diverse and we have so much “different”, we certainly have a lot of prejudice and discrimination that we need to work on. Some people would say it is because they are comfortable with their ways; I say it is just fear and ignorance. Growing up I lived in Elk Grove, California. It was a somewhat smaller town at the time and mostly consisted of Caucasian Americans. I am half Caucasian, or a mix of Italian and German, and my other half is Ecuadorian; Quito, Ecuador in South America. I was blessed enough to have an open hearted family where I never even knew what racism was until I started to see it first hand in school. In high school is where I really saw stereotyping and...

Eth 125 Final

...ETH 125 Final Project ETH 125 ETH 125 Final Project There are a lot of issues we face as a nation. There are so many, that often times you wonder if any of them will actually see a resolution. Americans everyday face very real issues of poverty, employment, security, and education. None of these issues are to be taken too lightly. One of the most important issues off all, though, is diversity. The equal treatment of all citizens either born in, or immigrated to, America. A lot of strides have been made over the course of America’s history. Diversity, and equal treatment of Americans, has to be one of the top priorities for everyone. Over the course of time, I have had a lot of interaction with different cultures. We have lived in Japan, America, and Europe. All of which provide very different cultures to learn and experience. One thing I have learned is to always keep an open mind. When you approach another culture with a closed mind that is when stereotypes take shape. I also learned to evaluate the history of your own people and their struggles. A lot of times, even though we may look different, we have all had very similar struggles throughout the course of history. Women have had the same struggles as African Americans when it comes to basic civil liberties. The same applies to Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender people. As you look at the different racial and gender groups, you do see a lot of similarities. You also learn some new things about their...

...Religion and Ethnic Diversity Denise McDonald ETH/125 July 12th, 2015 Ramona Taitano Loughran Religion and Ethnic Diversity Everyone in the world comes from different backgrounds, has different religions, and overall has different beliefs, morals, and views. I am white with a Roman Catholic religious background. I will be discussing the Latter-Day Saints (Mormon) religion as well as the Pacific Islander (Polynesian Descent) ethnic group. It will show the differences that these two groups face when compared to other religions and ethnic groups. According to Biola Magazine (1996-2015),” the overwhelming emphasis in the Mormon scriptures is on earning salvation through obedience to commandments and refraining from sin”. In most other religions you are born with original sin and in the Mormon religion, they do not believe that. Sin does not occur until a person is old enough to be held accountable around the age of seven and older. In the Catholic religion, we are taught that it is “The father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit” whereas in the Mormon religion it is “The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost”. A majority of the Christian population believe that Mormons are not Christian while Mormons disregard that and state that they are. Non-Mormons still believe that Mormons still participate in Polygamy even though it has not occurred since the 1860’s. Many people believe that Mormons spend a lot of their time as teens walking door to door to try to recruit people to...

...Race and Your Community: Knoxville, Tennessee John Smith Date Aixa College ETH 125 The community of Knoxville is extremely small. A larger amount of the Tennessee population consists of several minority groups. Within my location the residency is composed of mostly Blacks and Whites; I have recently found out that the two groups do not have much differences between the two. As there have been identified, there are several differences between these two groups and the Hispanics, Asians, and Filipinos. Traveling through the City of Knoxville, it is easily noticeable and obvious that the Whites and Blacks are obligated to a higher standard of living; the nicer vehicles and larger houses is the proof of this statement. Throughout the city of Knoxville, I have experienced that although there are numerous differences that are easily noticeable between the different races and ethnicities, the unifying of all groups occur when required because of our common ethics and principles. Each group within the community to which I were raised, correlate and empathize in contradictory ways; however, a general respect for another is displayed by all and the thoughtfulness for each person throughout the community’s miscellaneous ways of living are revealed. Within my community, there is a resemblance bearded of me in observations to color as an outcome of me being white and residing within a community in which many of the residents are of the...

...Capstone Checkpoint Name Axia College of University of Phoenix Cultural Diversity ETH 125 Instructor September 16, 2010 Capstone Checkpoint This cultural diversity class has helped me to understand the social, cultural, and economic conditions that affect ethnic and racial groups in the U.S. Sometimes the fact that all citizens started as immigrants from other countries and faced similar struggles with assimilation is forgotten. The same struggles faced by the current influx of Hispanic Americans and other groups in America are the same social, cultural, and economic issues faced by previous ethnic and racial minority groups that are currently considered a staple of the U.S. population. My family is classified as part of the Japanese American cultural background; this was a particularly interesting learning area as it was something that I had never given much thought. I think the learning about the struggles my ancestors endured when they came to this country has helped me to view immigration and the treatment of immigrants much differently. The immigrant groups that are more prevalent today are part of America’s successful future and should be treated as such. Helping to make the average immigrant a contributing member of society through bilingual education and programs making the transition easier will benefit America as well as the immigrant. By the year 2050 America will continue to grow in racial and ethnic diversity, particularly with...
