  • Canon Of Works By Dead White Males
    1,377 words
    Broadening Our Childrens Horizons: The Key to Multicultural Education John Searle addresses the major debate going on at present concerning a crisis in the teaching of the humanities. [Searle, 106] He goes on to defend the canon of works by dead white males that has traditionally made up the curriculum of liberal arts education. I disagree with many of his arguments, and believe that multiculturalism should be taught in the university, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Openmindedness will...
  • Pure Wild Male X Pure White Female
    648 words
    THE GENETICS OF FRUIT FLIES This labs purpose was to determine the genetics of fruit flies, including but not limited to: raising them, feeding them, mating them, sexing them, separating them, and mating them again. We then had to determine which traits were dominant in flies, in my case either the wild eyes or the white eyes, by crossing the flies and through phenotypic ratios we were to determine genotypes. My partner was Eugene Montoya. We chose the white flies because they were more attracti...
  • Quotas And Affirmative Action
    1,487 words
    Politics is assuming command of the American economy in the form of "equal opportunity" enforcement. In today's society, everyone is supposed to be equal and have equal rights, but in employment, there is more discrimination than ever. American citizens need to do away with affirmative action so that America's job opportunities can once again be based on merit, not skin color or ethnicity. Laws have been passed, quotas have been established, and it seems that everything has been done to prevent ...
  • Blacks And White Women
    1,241 words
    Separate and unequal: Blacks and White women. Many may say that blacks and white women had more in common than people thought they did in the pre civil war era. A point worth arguing is that there are a few similarities and too many differences to list. No matter how you twist reality to make it seem the worst for women, they were at least treated as humans and not like barn animals. Before 1861, many white males valued their farm animals higher than their slaves. Although white women were not t...
  • Normal Body Vestige Wings
    646 words
    Fruit Fly Lab Introduction The major topic of this experiment was to examine two different crosses between Drosophila fruit flies and to determine how many flies of each phenotype were produced. Phenotype refers to an individual's appearance, where as genotype refers to an individual's genes. The basic law of genetics that was examined in this lab was formulated by a man often times called the "father of genetics", Gregor Mendel. He determined that individuals have two alternate forms of a gene,...
  • Preferential Treatment For White Males
    685 words
    Affirmative Action Under Attack by Initiative 200? Affirmative action is under heavy attack by initiative 200, and it should not be. It should not be under fire because it serves as an act of restitution for the discrimination and hurt that we have caused African-Americans and other minorities throughout this century. It is our job to repair and repay blacks because our performance in the past has immediately affected their present status. Americans, especially white males until late, were not o...
  • Affirmative Action As The Law
    1,035 words
    Affirmative Action in the United States The writer Mary Anne Warren is focusing on describing the current practices in many organizations today in regards to the implementing a goal vs. a quota system for the purposes of affirmative action. She defines a quota as "Those who use the term "quotas" pejoratively tend to assume that the numerical standards will be set so high or enforced so rigidly that strong reverse discrimination that is, the deliberate hiring of demonstrably less well qualified c...
  • Used For The Mono Hybrid Corn Cross
    1,939 words
    Genetic Observations Through The Studies of Hybrid Corn, Single Gene Human Traits, and Fruit Flies The basic foundation of modern genetics was led by Gregor Mendel (Corcos, 1993). Mendel was not the first to experiment with heredity, and our Lyman Briggs biology class will not be the last to deal with genetics. Genetics is the science of heredity. In our lab, we had three main objectives. First, we evaluated our data on mono hybrid and dihybrid corn cross seed counts against Mendel's theoretical...

  • Mideastern Descent And People
    549 words
    On September 11th, 2002, America was attacked like no other time it our history. Three planes were intentionally crashed into three different prestigious buildings. It was later found out that these planes were high jacked by eighteen men. All of these men were found to be of Mideastern descent. Since this has happened, our country has been forced to change in order to provide better security. With this new security, we must all give up some of our privacy in order remain safe. No one ever expec...
  • Male Privilege
    2,623 words
    The three articles chosen for my critical examination are as follows: Jewish, Women, and Lacking Class, by B. Burstow; White Privilege and Male Privilege, by P. McIntosh; Homophobia: A Weapon of Sexism, by S. Pharr. These three articles have been grouped together due to a common theme they all share. The theme is invisibility, associated specifically with prejudice, privilege, and norms. Together, these three articles should illustrate the tremendous influence of invisibility, i.e. when one cann...
  • Same Opportunities As Wealthy White Male Landowners
    758 words
    Although Jacksonian Democrats promoted political democracy, equal opportunity, and personal liberty during Andrew Jackson's two terms as president from 1828 to 1836, they were exclusively given to White males. Despite Jackson's proclaimed "politics for the common man", he may as well have said "politics for the common White man". Despite the fact that many poor Whites were finally given the opportunity to partake in the political and economic opportunities that were previously available only to ...
