Sociology Notes 9/20/16 Trump Pence Add: Syrian Refugee problem -Skittles “If you had a whole bowl full, and three would kill you… would you take one?” -ideology- fear of death; protecting yourself= you don’t have to help them Possible Homework: **Post stories and pictures to carman that relate to class. Race: Classification system of groups of people who share a set of characteristics usually physical ones, phenotype is normally used, and usually is based on blood line Categories of race are hierarchal Socially constructed Stereotypes: intelligence, and we assign characteristics We give meaning to race, symbols – change over time and space = social construct No genetic markers that differentiate race= social construct These categories based on skin color are made-up! (known from biology) However, there can be accumulation of traits in one area over another, so geography is a better way to analyze it. Race is a myth… then why did it emerge? -Race difference provides an excuse to oppress a particular group of people We have described meaning to the way someone looks.  Sociologist looks at it Census: tries to categorize the United States Race is a question- we identify as something Why does it matter? What does the Census show? -show population in particular area When we categorize people racism exist, Racism is a system of domination based on the belief that members of separate races has different and unequal traits. Conflict theorists: Bonilla- Silvia Reading: People characterize people Latin Americanization- since the white population is going to become a minority in the next century so the term “white” will now start to include more people to keep their majority The argument is that as other group become more demographically dominant… the whites begin to lose their dominance in their numbers How do we decide who is white or not?  we decide through our interactions Color Blind Racism: People simply chose not to acknowledge the inequality of race; the attempt to deny the racial inequality Equal opportunity does not indicate equal quality of results Ex: Institutional racism versus Black lives matter Institutional racism: operates on the societal level, but in individual institutions... produce unequal outcomes. We have defacto segregation, example in schools…black schools are worse Black lives matter: focus on one individual group, and that their problem needs to be fixed Video Clip: Boy shot when went to pull out bb gun that looked real out of his pocket. African American 13-year-old boy, was shot by the police and killed. Racial issue? Ethnicity: Cultural and not imposed (cultural heritage) you self-identify as and not hierarchal
