Gillborn (1990) found that teachers were quick to discipline black pupils than any other raced pupils for the same behaviour. Gillborn and Youdell (2000) argue that this is the result of teacher’s racialised expectations. They found that teachers expected black pupils to present more discipline problems and misinterpreted their behaviour as threatening or challenge to authority. The pupils responded negatively when teachers misinterpreted their behaviour which resulted to conflict. Black pupils felt that teachers underestimated them and picked on them.
Due to the fact that the Negros are brainwashed by their oppressors, they believe their inferiority to the other races to be true. The oppressor starts the mis-education of the Negro in school. School is the most powerful factor that an oppressor has because he has full control over the Negros thoughts and believes. Every race would be brainwashed and manipulated if “The thought of the inferiority is drilled into [them] in almost every class [they] enter and in almost every book [they] study” (Woodson, 2). This is not an educated person; this is a person who is trained to fit society according to the oppressor’s standards.
"Explain how freedoms for African Americans were socially, politically, and economically limited from 1865 to 1900?” Socially, blacks were subjected to segregation and discrimination. Segregation wasn’t really a large problem to them, however, as they were more interested in forming a black community rather than integrating with the whites. However, I mean, it is still pretty awful to be treated like you’re not a being worthy enough to drink out of the same water fountain or attend the same school based on skin color. Blacks were subjected to many dehumanizing things socially speaking. Oh, and lets not forget the KKK (if that falls into this category; I think it does) who harassed, intimidated, and killed black people.
“Realistic Dreams” African Americans in professional sports are failing as role models for our young black students. Far too many of our young African American students aspire to be like our celebrity black athletes for more wrong reasons than the right ones. I. African American athletes have to be held to a higher standard by themselves, as well as the communities they serve. i. Our black athletes are placing our young students at a disadvantage by not informing, motivating, and encouraging them about the importance of education.
They just wanted to be treated as equals with the white people. African-Americans, although free, were still treated very poorly. In the 1960’s bathrooms, schools, restaurants, and even water fountains were segregated and had signs saying “whites only” and “blacks only.” The places that the blacks were allowed to go were of the poorest conditions and even though they weren’t property of the white people any more they still had to do what they say or end up in jail. The African-American dream was to get equality of all races and live in harmony together without prejudice and racism. Martin Luther king, an activist who was trying to help the movement for equality gave his famous I had a dream speech and this sparked a revolution and even though Mr. King was shot and killed by some white dude who hated blacks.
This Savior inspires the people of color, teaches them how to be a better them, and makes their lives better when the people of color couldn’t do it themselves. "The Blind Side" based on a true story peddles the most insidious kind of racism, one in which whiteys are virtuous saviors, coming to the rescue of blacks who become superfluous in narratives that are supposed to be about them.” It reinforces all the stereotypes that obfuscate the issues of race and class in our culture. It portrays the white community passing judgment on an African American male, Michael, they believe he is dangerous, but also assuming he would be a football star because he is African American. Actress Sandra Bullock plays a Leigh Anne Tuohy a white woman who takes in a Homeless teenage boy named Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) and shows him that he can achieve a good education and a positive lifestyle. She and her family welcome him in with open arms and show him what a loving home is.
Every race has people that are discriminatory and this includes groups lime the black panthers other African supremacy groups are just as guilty in the category if racist groups as the KKK. The problem with hate groups are that they skew views people have about other races causing them to themselves become racist subconsciously. Studies have taken place at Stanford university as well as the university at California berkley that have studied racism and subconscious racism are still a very prominent aspect of humanity. Part of the problem in the unsuccessful attempts to kill racism is that there are people who don't admit that it's real anymore. Acceptance is a viable part if repentance.
African Americans were stated, as “one fifth of a white person” segregation was a huge part of African Americans lifestyle they were openly seen as less important then white people. Blacks and whites were separated either is school or neighborhood which made the matter worst then it already was. Education was one of the weaknesses in African American schools as they received poor education. For Black people to actually get somewhere and make a difference to how they were treated they needed education mainly as a lot of things relied on that. Booker T Washington believed education was the key.
Because of this, all armed forces were eventually desegregated. This is a huge step to equality as it shows to people that black people can do the same jobs white people can do. Although this may have been apparent, many white people still treated black people as second class citizens. You could say to an extent that they treated them like children as white Americans thought that they were still smarter than African Americans even though this has been proved wrong in WWII. Even though African Americans have shown that they can do what Caucasian Americans can do there is still De Jure segregation in the south which is commonly known as the Jim Crow law.
I don’t believe in this, because everyone is given the same chance to succeed as everyone else. The people one surrounds themselves determines how they act around others and how they carry themselves. After Brown vs. Board of Education determined that segregation in schools was unconstitutional, the schools still seemed like they were segregated because they still separated themselves accordingly. Although it is true that the schools that serve mainly minorities don’t give a better education, it is true that if they moved to a better neighborhood, they would get a better education. “If you would have scooped Alliyah up out of the neighborhood where she was born and plunked her down in a fairly typical suburb of New York, she would have received a public education worth about $12,000 a year” (Kozol 462).
