  • Pride In One's Own Race
    1,618 words
    What is race The Webster's dictionary defines race as any of the different varieties of human beings distinguished by physical traits, blood types, and so on. Nonetheless, I see this definition more fit for the word ethnicity than the race. In my opinion, ethnicity is a part of one's race. One's race embodies much more than just the ethnicity, which is just physical traits or blood types. It represents one's identity, culture, origin, moral values, and so on. One could belong to any particular e...

    When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans a couple months ago the citizens of this country were bombarded with questions on race playing a responsibility of the survivors that were stranded for days to soon be plucked from their rooftops.

They most likely had no insurance, no stable extended family that could lend them a house to stay or even a job to return to after the storm. The majority of New O...
  • Feelings Towards The White Race

    Black Supremacy Throughout history, white anglo-saxons have been notorious for mistreating all races other than it's own. Malcolm X felt 'the white man had been actually nothing but a piratical opportunist who used Faustian machinations to make his own Christianity his initial wedge in criminal conquests' (563). The earth is burdened by the white man! That is the true meaning of what Malcolm Xis stating; the words Faustian machinations, meaning evil plotting, implies the whole white population i...

  • Blacks And Other Races

    "I'd thought about the idea of living as a black person ever since I read John Howard Griffin's Black Like Me". This is an excerpt from Skin Deep: "Black Like Me" My Own Journey into the heart of Race-Conscious America. It was an intriguing story of how a young white male felt such an urge to encompass the life of a black man that he purposely changed his skin color. My first reaction was, "How strange for someone to do that" yet; as I read on I changed my initial reaction of puzzlement to, "Wha...
  • Experience With The Other Race
    1,715 words
    Although the phrase "they all look alike to me" is widely known and used as a joke (Goldstein & Chance, 1985) the implications that the phrase yields may not be as widely understood as they should be. In the criminal justice system, eyewitness identifications can play a major role in the decisions made by jurors even though it has been shown that jurors have little awareness of factors that affect the reliability of eyewitness accounts (Cutler, Penrod, & Dexter, 1990). One such factor is identif...

  • Black Boy A Nigger
    531 words
    Ebony Sowell November 5, 1998 Dr. Osinubi The Meaning of the Word "Nigger" I can recall the first time I paid close attention to the word nigger. In junior high a school fight would occur about every week and of course the whole school would gather together and watch. Well this particular fight sticks out in my mind because it was between two boys of different races, Hispanic and black. During their conflict the Hispanic boy bluntly called the black boy a nigger, and that was when the rest of th...
  • Black And The White Race

  • Education Of Black History
    570 words
    It seemed to me that the primary purpose of "The Crisis" was to motivate the "Darker Race" to rise. I focused my attention on three particular pieces from "The Crisis", an advertisement, a section called "The Horizon" and the poem "Negro", to prove my point. Although all of these pieces served the same purpose but their method and what they were presenting were very distinct. In the "Negro" Langston Hughes focused on the history or the past of the African American race to motive the current blac...

  • New Category From The Mixed Race Community
    387 words
    Over the past several years, people of mixed race have been pushing for the a dition of a multiracial category to the U.S. Census. The push for this new category from the mixed race community doesn't stem from hatred for the black or white community but for a love of their mixed race heritage and to end the "tug-of-war" they are faced with when having to choose one parent's race over the other. Besides gaining recognition there are important health issues which must be addressed such as, bone-ma...
