Ethics: Council Bluffs Iowa I come from the Council Bluffs Iowa. Council Bluffs Iowa is a city made of different kinds of people. The people in my community are from diverse backgrounds hence they are not the same in relation to religion, race, social, economic, and even political background. In particular, my community is made up of Hispanics, African Americans, Asians, mixed races, native Hawaiians, and Caucasians. Regardless of these differences, one thing apparent is the fact that most of the people in my community look like me in terms of physical appearance because most of them are Caucasians as I am.

Racial Inequality in the South In Darkroom, Lila Quintero Weaver, illustrates the black uprising against racial inequality, through her family’s experience as Argentinean immigrants to Marion, Alabama in the 1960’s. The family moved into an area that was a hot bed of racial strife, where black people are the majority of the population but white people are the dominant race. One would believe that basic human rights would be availed to all people regardless of race or ethnicity; Weaver reveals that there were times in life when these rights were not justly adhered to. Everyone of age in this country has the right to register and vote. In Darkroom Weaver shows that black citizens had to fight for their right to vote.

Mervy Michael HIST 366-001/ Prof. Moran Final Paper 12/2/14 Topic 2: Protest versus Accommodation: The W.E.B. Du Bois & Booker T. Washington Debate Booker T. Washington and W.E.B Du Bois are revered as two of the most important figures in black history. Booker T. Washington was born a slave to a black mother and white father. Throughout his whole life he was quite poor and from a young age worked in salt mines. Through a scholarship, however, he was able to study at Hampton Normal Agricultural Institute of Virginia and years later he graduated in 1875.
He has written many books and in this on in particular he criticizes the prevalence of Native American and African American studies programs. His complaints about these programs stem from the fact that “people who support these programs assume that by communicating the best aspects of a group they have somehow solved the major problems of that group in its relations with the rest of society.” His essay makes many comments about the evolution of stereotypes and how certain oppressed groups of people are viewed over time. A quote that would be applicable to a gender/popular culture essay can be found on page 733, “The problem of stereotyping is not so much a racial problem as it is a problem of limited knowledge and perspective.” (Applicable to gender stereotypes as
Race and Your Community By: Ronald Paulley Jr Race in our community is a main factor why most people have violence and most people can’t have the family they dream about.

Facing the Challenges of Cultural Diversity Steven W. Fiore Trident University When you ask someone from my generation what is “diversity,” some of us (at least those of us who are quasi-cinophiles) will immediately recall the scene in “Anchorman” where the character of Ron Burgundy, in response to the same question, says “I believe that diversity is an old wooden ship.” While completely moronic in relevance to the true definition, it is a microcosm to the fact that most people are not either actively aware or do not give too much of a thought to diversity and how it affects us on a daily basis. The truth of the matter is that diversity is both a concept and issue that affects us on a daily basis. In order to answer the issue of how to face the challenges of cultural diversity, two issues need to be addressed: what is cultural diversity, and what are the challenges of cultural diversity? So what exactly is cultural diversity? A basic dictionary will give you a mundane defintion: “the ethnic, gender, racial, and socioeconomic variety in a situation, institution, or group.1” However, for more of a relevant application, and a more simplisitic approach, would be to define cultural diversity as, “nothing more than a difference from the majority.
