There has been a lot of friction when it comes to the racism in the education system of the educatio the United States. This is a problem that has been becoming more alarming each year and the numbers keep increasing. â€œwhile the Civil Rights Movement paved way for legal acceptance of multiracial families, it also created a new set of struggles for these families. The Civil Rights Movement included various groups struggling for liberation and self-definitions such as Young Lords, the Chicano Movement, the Black Power Movement, the Asian American Movement, and the American Indian Movementâ€ (Dalmage, p. 97). The most affected subgroup of this group has been the Black American community. This group has the largest number of dropouts with the worst performance for those who choose to remain and this has led to further discussions by many scholars to look into this issue. (Quaye, 2014. P. 38).
I have never listen about when I was in my country which is Saudi Arabia. I am glad that I am learning totally new experience which I have it from before. In the beginning, I was confused between the ehnincity and racism. It was hard for me to differentiate between them. I have doe few research. Then, I learn that racism be biological, we do not have a choice to change. For example, if someone is white, he will remain white until death. On the other hand, I learn the ethnity will be something with culture, traditions and the language.
I totally agree with Tatum 567 when he said that â€œThe impact of racism begins early. Even in our preschool years, we are exposed to misinformation about people different from ourselvesâ€. There is still a great deal of social segregation in our communitie Consequently most of the early information we receive about"others people racially, religiously, or socioeconomically different from ourselves-does not come as the result of experience.

The first five years of a child's life are fundamentally important. They are the foundation that shapes children's future health, happiness, growth, development and learning achievement at school, in the family and community, and in life in general.
Recent research confirms that the first five years are particularly important for the development of the child's brain, and the first three years are the most critical in shaping the child's brain architecture.
Every year of a childâ€™s life is precious, but when it comes to development, the first five is the most important. This is when a child becomes the person they are going to be. It is when they learn appropriate behavior, boundaries, empathy and many other important social skills that will remain with them for life. From my personal experience, my daughter is five years old. She always tries to follow me in every behavior. I am glad that I am here in the USA. We get a chance to communicate to people from other culture which tells us to respect other.
Whiteness is everywhere in America culture. â€œMinorities are less likely than whites to receive preventive medical care or costly operations from Medicare. Eligible members of minority communities are also less likely than European Americans to apply for food stamps,â€ (lipsitz, p.81). I firmly start to understand what means privilege and what is the impact of being white here. Based on my own experience, international students face similar problems which any other minority oppression group face. For example, plenty of other restrictions, because of the type of passport we hold or the visa restrictions that we must follow to avoid getting deported. If I want to have an internship, unpaid or paid, I would have to enroll in an internship course and be billed for the one credit hour on top of registering my employment with the Department of Homeland Security. I tend to ignore the otherwise very helpful emails from the Office of Fellowships, Awards, and Resources because the very first requirement of most of the opportunities and study abroad grants they promote is a citizenship requirement.
I started to ask myself weather all the white people have the same opportunities. Then, I found my answer in this article.
â€œIt is It is important to acknowledge that while all whites benefit from racism, they do not all benefit equally. Other factors, such as socio-economic status, gender, age, religious affiliation, social sexual orientation, mental and physical ability. (Tatum, p.67). (add something here). I do not think any person feel themselves that he is totally complete or have a privilege. In any situation, he sometimes has a little privilege. The racism Material encourage me to research more on the privilege. I am planning to do more research may be I find someone why consider himself totally privilege.
- I would like to say that more efforts by the teachers and administrators in the learning institutions to help the students will likely improve the state of the minority in our nation. As referred in the text, I trust that organizations will facilitate better learning when they learn from previous mistakes and lessons while they also get used to adapting with the changing environment. To solve these issues better I think the FLEX model to which offers suggesstions for developing multicultural competence.
â€œMulticultural competence is a phrase that acknowledges the ability of a person to manicat effectively across cultural boundaries with sensitive to the cultural differences and preferences involved on both sides of those boundaries.
Flex model provides more than the upbeat thought processes promoted via its compact phrases, behind each phrase crouches its behavior-affecting antithesis. For example, if we do not foster interconnectedness and listen and communicate, how we arrive at understanding, of people of other cultures values, beliefs, and practices? If we do not encourage respect and explore differences between cultures, how are we to rid our behavior of the anger-invoking insensitivities of communication that distance us from people of other cultures? Utilizing the genuinely effective communication filters, as well as, the opportunity for thoughtful introspection and relearned behavior, offered in this FLEX model promotes access to multicultural competencyâ€ (Castaneda, p. 134).
Finally, I would like to concur that in the education system, for deleaing with the diversity within the campuses, the boards should also select the heads of the various departments with much diversity. Psychologically, the students will be more comfortable confiding with lecturers and other members of the faculty with whom they feel will understand them more (Linder, et al 2015). Moreover, it should be the obligation of the faculty to consider all the suggestions of all the students openly and treat the students with fairness and respect. No individual should be treated unfairly just because of his race. It should also be noted that our society is only as a result of our learning institutions. If we teach peace and love, the students will practice peace and love. On the other hand, if we teach hatred, that will be the reflection that will be mirrored by the younger generations.
Reflection Chapter 4
There has been a lot of friction when it comes to the racism in the education system of the education the United States. This is a problem that has been becoming more alarming each year and the numbers keep increasing. While the Civil Rights Movement paved way for legal acceptance of multiracial families, it also created a new set of struggles for those families. The Civil Rights Movement included various groups struggling for liberation and self-definitions such as Young Lords, the Chicano Movement, the Black Power Movement, the Asian American Movement, and the American Indian Movement (Harper, 2014). The most affected subgroup of this group has been the Black American community. This group has the largest number of dropouts with the worst performance for those who choose to stay and fight for their rights. Hence this issue has led to various discussions by different scholars to bring an insight to the issue as well as the possible ways to curb such discrimination (Quaye, 2014. P. 38).
I have never listened about when I was in my country which is Saudi Arabia. I am glad that I am learning totally new experience which I have it from before. In the beginning, I was confused between ethnicity and racism. It was hard for me to differentiate between them. However, from the different researches that I have done, I have come to realise that being from a particular race is biological and there is nothing we can do about that. For example, if someone is white, then they will remain white until death. On the other hand, I have learned that ethnicity is all about culture, traditions and the language.
I totally agree with Tatum 567’s argument that the impact of racism is known to begin early in life. Even in our preschool years, we are often exposed to misinformation about people from other races. As well, there is still a great deal of social segregation in our community. Consequently most of the early information that we receive about others people racially, religiously, or socioeconomically different from ourselves does not come as the result of experience. People might be born in some country that is dominated by a particular race and will still be termed as foreigners because they are of different ethnicity. As a result, this turns out to be a perfect example of the existence of racism and ethnicity.
In addition, the first five years of a child's life are equally important because they play a substantial role of shaping the child’s future happiness, health, development and growth. It also determines the ability of the child to achieve from what they learn in school and the rest of the community in general. It is evident from recent research that the first five years of a child’s development determine their brain development a lot, while the first three years are responsible for the child’s brain architecture (Harper, 2014). Despite the fact that every year is equally important in the development of the child, the first five are very important because they determine who the child is going to be. During this age, the child is able to learn various social skills such as empathy and keeping boundaries. From a personal experience, I have a five-year old daughter. She always tries to follow me in every behavior. I am glad that I am here in the USA. We get a chance to communicate to people from other cultures which teaches us more about the idea of respecting one another.
Most of the American citizens are white and therefore the minorities stand a chance of not receiving the best medical care as the natives. Research also shows that the minorities are less likely to apply for food stamps (Harper, 2014). I therefore, stand by the opinion of fully knowing what it means to white in the USA in regard to the available privileges. Based on a personal experience, most of the international students are bound to experience similar problems to the ones faced by the minority groups in the nation. A good example is visa restrictions to avoid deportation, the terms of getting internships, and the citizenship requirements when enrolling for most of the programs in the country.
However, it is important to acknowledge that not all whites benefit from the above privileges equally. Some of the social economic factors benefit people in regard to social stratification regardless of their race. Among such factors are social sexual orientation, physical and mental health, age and gender among others. In any given situation, any human being is bound to feel less privileged because needs and wants cannot be fully satisfied.
Hence, in an attempt to handle the issue of racial and ethnic discrimination, then it is important for institutions to come up with strategies that will end up benefiting the minorities just like the other native students. As a result, this will generally improve the state of the minority in the whole nation. This will be facilitated by the lessons obtained from previous. The flex model is a key example of how to develop multicultural competence. In this case an individual is able to maneuver across the different cultures and be able to interact with the people a...
