“Racism in U.S. Welfare Policy: A Human Rights Issue” (75)  “poverty is regarded as a result of individual choices, behaviors, and failing- “personal responsibility”- not as a structural social dynamic.” (76) “Criminalizing Trends in the Welfare System” (85)  “At the same time that a rising number of women of color were being convicted on drug-related felony charges, the welfare rules in many states changed to exclude individuals with felony convictions from receiving various government benefits.” (86)  “These stereotypes hold not only that black women are to blame for failing to socialize their children and run their communities properly, but also that they are to blame for giving birth to the young men, and increasingly the young women, who often wind up in the criminal justice system. According to these views low income women of color embody and breed criminality.” (86)  “Finally, recent developments in welfare administration conflate poverty and crime, and manifest a widespread assumption that welfare recipients are latent criminals.”
During this period, there was harsh treatment for children and was more severe for children at the age of seven as it was believed that childhood seized at that age (Beukes & Gannon, 1996). Beukes and Gannon also points out that children were recognised for their economic worth and that many children were exploited for their labour, thus child labour and stealing for this purpose was not uncommon. Poor children were moved to mils and mines and worked for twenty hours a day. Discipline was brutal. In the 20th century Ellen Key wrote “The Century of the child” and it is true that this century has been one which recognised children as children and has seen the most important developments in child care (Beukes & Gannon, 1996).
, U.S. History 1.06 Assessment 9-24-15 Social Limitations: During the Civil War times and after the war, the African Americans had it rough. The Whites and the Blacks were not exactly friends, more like business partners if anything. The African Ameri8cans were not allowed to live in the same neighborhood as the Whites. They had to live in separate communities and even then there were still problems. The African American children did not attend the same schools as the Whites.
In fact, Blacks were denied education. It was not until after the Civil War that Black people began confronting the issue of illiteracy. In modern day society blacks have low test scores. The ability to articulate words the same as educated Anglo-Saxons has bridged a wedge in recognizing written words. The Black community, as well as teachers needs to understand, that although they have come far from slavery the English patterns learned created a new dialect amongst the African

The Civil Rights movement changed our society especially for African Americans, until the 14th amendment by Abraham Lincoln in 1868, African Americans had been struggling for equality in our nation. From 1945-1974 they were held by bounds of segregation, unable to go to the same schools, eat at the same places, and or drink from the same fountains as everyne else. The Brown vs the Board of Education in Topeka, Kansas is the turning point for segregation in the school systems. Brown had claimed that African Americans did not receive the same equal opportunities that whites did concerning their education. Some examples where children had to walk several miles to reach their “black school” and the white school was a few blocks away.
Discrimination against aboriginal people Data Base: Racism against aboriginal people * An era of abandoning the culture and replacing it with another occurred to Aboriginals, where Canadian government organizations took Aboriginal kids from their communities and cultured them in residential schools. * A lot of them were physically and sexually abused, and most returned to their communities as wrecked and needy individuals. * Aboriginals were not permitted to carry out their traditional rituals and practices which include: hunting, trapping, fishing, voting and etc. * The Indian Act was printed without effort from Aboriginal peoples since, it is a piece of Parliamentary legislation, and it may perhaps be revised without

All these immigration laws have consequences and some are worst than others. A sad one is when families are being separated as a result of all the deportations taking place.
