  • Social Construction Of Race
    769 words
    In society, race clearly affects one's life chances. These are the chances of getting opportunities and gaining experience for progression. The social construction of race is based on privileges and availability of resources. Looking at society and the formation of race in a historical context, whites have always held some sort of delusional belief of a "white-skin privilege". This advantage grants whites an advantage in society whether one desires it or not. This notion is often commonly referr...
  • Social Constructions Of Gender
    1,792 words
    Socialization of Gender, Is it inherently negative? Egalia's Daughters My first reaction to Egalia's Daughters, by Gerd Brantenberg, was something like 'WHAT is this'. I was immediately very confused, and had no idea what this author was writing about. In fact, I felt as though I opened the book to the middle of a story, and became turned off by the whole experience. It took about three chapters, and someone's help, until I started to read the book understandably, with ease, and began to enjoy t...

Americans believe that Asians, blacks, Hispanics, and whites constitute biological entities called races, but it is a matter of cultural interest rather than scientific substance. This idea tells more abo...
  • Dichotomy Between Pentheus And Dionysus
    490 words
    Moral-Social Values in The Bacchae One prevailing argument about The Bacchae as with many of his other works is whether Euripides propounds a revolutionary or a reactionary message about society. This outlook, however, is skirting an essential element of The Bacchae's theme. The moral-social values affirmed in Euripedes' play are political only so far as philosophy itself is political. Euripides investigates the dichotomy between Pentheus and Dionysus. This conflict is used as a medium for comme...
  • The Social Construction Of Race
    1,015 words
    What is race? It is defined as descendants of a common ancestor; one of the distinct variations of the human species; race or lineage. (Websters New Dictionary 1998). As our society becomes more educated the debate on whether or not this is the true definition of race, or as today's Sociologists see it, is race merely socially constructed. Race, as it applies across scientific lines, is determinate to represent the human species as a whole, therefore there is but one race... Human. The readings ...
