Kerwin Article -Bi-racial identify development -Bi-racial individuals will choose one side to identify with 3 myths 1.Stereotype of tragic mulatto or marginal person 2. Biracial individual must choose to identify themselves with one group 3. Biracial individuals do not want to discuss their racial identity “one drop rule”= a person with any amount of black racial heritage would be designated as black. -Often asserted that biracial individuals will encounter societal discrimination similar to that of mono-racial minority group members -“Buffer race”- not as low as African roles, not as high as white roles. -Currently, the national Center for Health Statistics classifies children at birth according to their mothers race while fathers is ignored. Murray Article - White underclass born out of wedlock (illegitimate children) - Proposes that illegitimacy is the single most important social problem of our time—more than crime, drugs, poverty, illiteracy, homelessness because it drives all of this - -Doesn’t talk about black underclass because he may be a bit racist, the vast majority (whites) can not afford to increase the amount of children born into poverty and wedlock (1% of children born into families earning 100,000 or more. 99% of children born into wedlock are born into poverty) - Offers ways to stop children born out of Wedlock 1. No government support to single mothers (enlist the support from family and loved ones) 2. Spending lavishly on orphanages - Enlisting support of others raises the probability that other mature adults are going to be involved with the upbringing of the child - The need to find support forces a self-selection process. Child yearning isn’t a good enough selection device. - Stigma will regenerate/ the pressure on relatives and communities to pay for the folly of their children will make an illegitimate birth the socially horrific act it used to be. - Puts emphasis on the importance of marriage and childbearing Macintosh Article Author understands male privileges but wants to put emphasis on women’s privileges. 2 different types of advantages: 0 sum game= everything I win you lose non 0 sum game- not everyone can win, not everyone can lost (hard to change) - white people do not have to give up anything up for minority change there are 100 senators in the Us, 2 for every state. (2 African American Senators)- One from SC and one from NJ
