Consequently because of their brown colored skin they are seen inferior compared to the Anglo and it sustains like this even in the twentieth century. Ralph Guzman, author of The Function of Anglo-American Racism in Political Development of Chicanos: from Chicano Politics: Readings, states that the Anglo assume that Mexican Americans “are their inferior” (49). Who are they to say that Mexicans are inferior? Their light skin and colored eyes do not make them a better person compared to any other. The fact that many of these Mexican Americans come from very poor cities and where poverty is extreme has to do a lot with these Anglo’s assumptions.

This is a major problem that we need to solve. The Bliss type of homeless should not be incorporated into the statistics we as a nation gather this is because they are not the true homeless people, they are the lazy and unmotivated people of society. They can choose to be houseless if they want to, but they should be excluded from any sort of statistic that we
People who live in the undeveloped countries could may be the ones to bring in new knowledge. Another implication is that rich people are not biologically superior to poor people. The idea of the "survival of the fitness" was included in between the rich and poor, stimulating the theories of racial and high class superior. The rich people believed they were stronger and managed to "fight for survival" better than the poor. This issue happened from the past, for example, African-American were seen as lower-class people and had to be slaves because they were seen as different.
A system that privileges one race at the expense of others necessarily privileges one economic class over another as well. Racial hegemony at its core centers whiteness as the default in society, with everything else viewed as different or other. Due to this, the white experience is given higher standing over other cultures because historically Western society has been dominated by whites. In fact, even the color white in our society is associated with purity, being clean, and superior to other colors. This applies to the way we view certain professions and economic classes as well.

It do not make sense that people would hold something from others just because the color of their skin.
I will admit that I assume that Asians are smarter than any other race. To this day I think that Asians are one of the smartest of minorities if not the smartest. I believe that the reason why Asians are the smartest of minorities is because they are raised to work hard in everything they do and their parents enforce them to try a lot harder in school then other minority parents. I haven’t met a lot of Asians Americans but the ones that I have met have all been smart and I can see how one person can set the example to others and we stereotype people so when we think one Asian is really smart then we right away think Asian Americans in general are a lot smarter.
Smartness is a different concept from intelligence because it does not mean having a high level of intelligence but it generally refers to the efficient use of intelligence that a person has. There are diverse opinions on this issue. Some people believe that having a high level of IQ means being smart whereas others claim that acting right can be associated with being smart. However, since smartness differs from intelligence, it cannot be said that smartness is limited to one type of intelligence. That is to say, being smart is not equal to having and using only one type of intelligence, but having all types of intelligences which include practical, social and emotional intelligences as well as using them effectively.
