sMalcom X versus Martin Luther King Emily Voutes Malcolm X (1925-1965): Even his own name is a stab to the opinions of prejudice white folks during his era. This is true because his own, self declared last name "X" represents "the rejection of slave-names” and the absence of an inherited African name to take its place." Meaning that he was prepared to create a personal identity that represented himself and his race, and not a name that a white man forced upon him. Though they had similar characteristics and morals; his approach to the civil rights movement compared to the strategies of other civil rights leaders of his time, such as Martin Luther King, Jr. differed greatly. Rather than trying to integrate the black community into the white, Malcom X focused on the complete separation of the two races.
Under that doctrine, equality of treatment is accorded when the races are provided substantially equal facilities, even though these facilities be separate. In the Delaware case, the Supreme Court of Delaware adhered to that doctrine, but ordered that the plaintiffs be admitted to the white schools because of their superiority to the Negro schools. The plaintiffs contend that segregated public schools are not "equal" and cannot be made "equal" and that hence they are deprived of the equal protection of the laws. Issues: Does segregation of children in public schools solely on the basis of race, even though the physical facilities and other "tangible" factors may be equal, deprive the children of the minority group of equal educational opportunities? Holdings (and Judgment): Yes.
I will talk about the factors both in the United States and their home country that contribute to the success or failure of the foreign exchange student. Hypotheses: Is Asian a race of its own? In Racialized Groups: The Sociohistorical Consensus, they suggest that Asians don’t have the six characteristics to be considered a distinct race. (Blum, L 2010) They compared the description of what a race is compared to
The genetic model relies on three basic assumptions which are age, sex, and race in determining racial health disparities among black and white. Kieger and Bassett argue that the health of the black community is not simply the sum of the health of individuals who are “genetically black" but instead chiefly reflects the social forces which create racially oppressed communities in the first place (Kieger and Bassett 74). The environmental model blames poverty for the heath issue with black people. It is characterized by the effects of “inanimate objects, physical forces, or unfortunate social conditions” on a person (Kieger and Bassett 78). This view also neglects the effects that people may have on a person’s health.
Daniel McNabb Mr. González ANTH 1101 22 February 2011 In Tim Wise’s “Preface: to the First Edition”, Wise points out the fallacies of the racist ideology, and unearths and dissects “Institutionalized White Supremacy” and the factors that have contributed to its prolonged effect on society. Wise defines “white” as the privilege of, from the day you are born, having a basic level of legitimacy higher than “non-whites.” This privilege, Wise states, comes from having a skin tone that is accepted as “white” by society. He also makes a point to say that being “white” is not a biological issue at all, but a social status. Wise also sheds light on the polarization of socio-economic trends among whites and blacks. Hidden systems are hard to overcome, Wise says, because they are often not perceived by most of society and therefore not much attention is given to them by those who are not negatively affected.
The State of Louisiana passed Act 111 that required separate living quarters for African Americans and Whites on railroads.

In his opening statements, giving our oppressors divine characteristics is said of those blacks that use slavery as the reasoning behind their lack of responsibility; however, I cannot depart from the impression that Shannon feels slavery hasn't had little or any effect on the moral fiber of blacks. If at its best, members of the black race have been left with the side effects of this potent drug. I must concur with Shannon with regards to the declaration of self-esteem being more profound than clothing and image. Blacks must begin to use their past struggles as a source of strength and self-motivation to achieve. By doing so, they would've found a sense of victory and inspiration through failure and struggle.
Showcasing intelligence, manners, and loyalty: Calpernia portrays the perfect black representative, revealing the humanity Negros. Being black, neither Calpurnia nor Lula are shielded from Maycomb’s racial discrimination, therefore oppose racism using their own methods. Given great potential, Calpurnia’s ability to “read, write, and the rest of it” proves black intelligence rivals white minds if given the opportunity. Calpurnia forms the voice for black society; exemplifying extravagent vocabulary, pronunciation, and writing. Implying Negroes perceive the ability to strive yet, diminish due to the lack of formal education.
Final Essay Questions #1. Explain why anthropologists no longer think the race concept is the best way to understand human variation.
