The Apartheid was when white people came to Africa and took over; they took the land from the black people and kept it themselves. Many black people were killed while partitioning and others were left without even the simplest of human rights. The black people (80% of the population) had to live on 20% of the land. There were ‘white only’ areas, which the black people weren’t aloud into and many black people lost their education, leaving them no hope for the future.
Historical Maltreatment of Psychiatric Inpatients in Western Culture Marilyn Alm Abnormal Psychology 3110 History of Maltreatment of Psychiatric Inpatients Capella University January, 2014 History of Maltreatment All throughout history, people have not known how to deal with the mentally ill. They have labeled them as outcasts, “less than human”, and left them with nowhere to go. Many of these sufferers are mentally ill and homeless, destitute and in strict survival mode. Their families have neglected them or given up hope. Conditions are less than optimal for the homeless.
In the last stanza, she claimed that “the message of the Yew tree is blackness-blackness and silence.”, showing that the nature has rejected her and that the establishment failed. Slyvia Plath could not even communicate with the substitute of being- nature. Slyvia Plath also established a connection with the moon as her mother. However, her mum’s relation with her is seen to be very superficial and distant. From “ The moon is no door”, we know that her mum is not someone whom she can escape to from her problems, not someone whom she can rely on.
Other policies attempted to ‘breed-out’ Indigenous Australians by pairing an Indiginous individual with a white partner. These ‘half-castes’ where again viewed as inferior and often removed from government reserves and discouraged from interacting with Indigenous people, including their parents, in an attempt to remove the Indigenous culture from the general populace. These policies have created an enormous effect on the Indiginous experience of health. It has led to the loss of culture and identity to an entire generation of Indigenous people and therefore a severe lack of understanding of health amongst those affected. Further, many Indiginous Australians today still have deep seeded mistrust of Western medicine because of these historical factors.
The early Irish settlers in the United States emigrated from Ireland. Most people left Ireland for similar reasons. The largest amounts of Irish people were being forced out of their homeland due to the potato famine in the 1840’s. The idea of coming to America not only gave them hopes for a new beginning but for many was their own chance at survival. With failing crops and illness threatening the land families were unable to pay their rent and keep a roof over their head. Others were having their land taken from them because of the religious wars going on in the country and had no where else to go.
Secondary socialization could not be formed because it built on previous experiences (McClinchey, B. Socialization, 2013); therefore, the schools erased the children’s primary socialization and stopped their secondary socialization from forming. They began socializing the children from scratch using physical force (McClinchey, B. Residential Schools, 2013). For example, in the film Education As We See It, individuals recalling their experiences spoke about how they were beaten for using their own language. They were told English is the only language they are allowed to speak and must forget any other language and their customs with their families (Marcuse, B., G., & G., 1993).
Short Extended Response - Dispossession Dispossession, that is, depriving the Aboriginal people of their land, identity and religious expression, has had a lasting impact on Aboriginal people and their spirituality. The forceful removal of the Indigenous Australians from their lands led to the forceful removal from their family and kinship groups, causing the destruction of Aboriginal spirituality. Through the eradication of the Dreamtime, the centre of their spirituality, their sense of identity and belonging was lost, status and land right continuously denied, and kinship groups were fractured. This loss of kinship ties, in addition to the perpetual impact of the Stolen Generation, resulted in the disruption of the passing on of the Dreamtime stories and tradition, which in turn prevented the spirituality being kept alive through the next generation. Therefore, the effects can be seen as physical, spiritual and psychological.
Losing our Identity and Purity When The Emperor was Divine tells a chilling Story About a Family who was unexpectedly taken out of their comfort zone due to war and racism . As the color white was repeated in this novel it shows how the family lost the purity in their life as their identity was stolen from them. It seems that Julia Otsuka left this family nameless, because as they were stripped of everything they knew in their life that is exactly what they were nameless. They were without true identity of who they were. The purity of this family was torn right from up under them as if they were nothing of importance or concern.
Native American children were removed from their homes on reservations for alleged maltreatment and thus placing them in adoptive Caucasian homes (Martin, 2007). Although many of them were truly removed for maltreatment, 99% of the children were removed because social workers believed that the children were victims of social deprivation do to the extreme poverty common on most Indian reservations (Martin, 2007). These acts on behalf of the child
Many of the Native Americans suffered from disease, starvation and death because of the forced relocation to the west. A change in climate and environment did not assist with the relocation of this society that had first existed on the American soil. This tragic incident is most remembered as the “The Trail of Tears”. Furthermore, the lack of compensation, by the government, to the Native Americans destroyed, the already diminishing, numbers of their eastern tribes. Many Americans opposed the removal of the Native Americans and argued that they too had been civilized and should be allowed to remain on the homelands, specifically Davey Crocket.
