Effects of Racial Inequality
Racial inequality places society with lots of problems such as lower level trust, race, class, mental illness, physical, more poverty, and a shaky community and the poor will get poorer. Gregory Mantsios, director of Joseph S.Murpy institute for Worker and Education wrote an article “ The contrast between rich and poor is sharp in America. Census Data shows the gap between rich and poor to be the widest since the government began collecting information in 1974 and that this gap is continuing to grow (Class In America 281).” Does everyone have equal opportunity in America? Harlon L. Dalton professor at Yale law school written in his article “There are many factors that contribute to success, it does not rely solely on merit (Horato Alger 260)”. Not receiving the result of effort or talent is the biggest trouble in inequality. Which points out that America is no longer the land of unlimited opportunities. One of the negative impacts with income inequality in the US is education for the poorer. They wont have much high-level convenient opportunity educations as a rich people gain that is one of the reasons to keep specialization lower for economic growth. The Ideology of discrimination between forces is harming future prosperity of society especially lower class. To reversing these problems and avoiding inequalities between groups along with unfair decisions. It make society equal opportunity and democracy to everyone.
Inequality in the US
In the United States, the poverty rate is the lowest level of income inequality. Racism is the main problem in society. The theory of modern racism in US addresses these issues, distinguishing between old-fashioned racial beliefs recognized by everyone as racism and a new set of beliefs arising from the conflicts of the civil rights movement. It won’t impact only economic also bad affects in different forces. It will bring people hand-in-hand with a host of other racism. Poorer community will be the one to suffer the inequity or unfair decision that’s why they are forced to live near industrial polluters or more toxic places, as they wont be able to pay for illness medications.. The story of Stephen Cruz by Studs Terkel explains “the American dream may not be the same for all Americans. After working in the corporate world he realized that he was the only one in an all glass office. Manager asked him to interview blacks in a different way and to make sure if they “smell.” the American Dream was a bit skewed and did not really apply to everyone. The minorities were being hired because the businessmen and did not care if it was a just and fair decision (Stephen Cruz)”. Its been long time in the U.S that racism became more problem specially for African American although both of these capture the whole distribution of a given clue, inequality exists independent of the mean of this distribution. Discrimination in the Job market especially for labor resumes are being filtered based on white and black naming. This is because the poor are disproportionately affected the poverty of the rich, and the poorer. This is the reason the poor are often more likely to remain poorer and the rich get richer.
Class inequality is being considered based on people’s wealth. It’s familiar with the headlines, which look and show the big difference between the rich and the poor reaching a central place in society. Income inequality is mostly used in unfair decision and impeachment in many places. The problem is that the poor are more likely to be poorer than those who are rich. This is true about poor the defenseless, uneducated and with more generosity. It will remain the same which wont have much opportunity for economic growth. Young people are also facing the same issues if they known by the same definition of poor community “ Not all Americans have the same opportunists if they are born in different classes. It is very hard to get out of a lower class. Being in a lower class present many more challenges than someone who started off in a higher-class level and poor is always invisible in American media (Class in America 281).” Media is always busy to present high-level people. If no body hears their voices then how would the rid of their poverty. Diana Kendall is a sociologist from Baylor University who studies mass media and social studies pointed, “TV shows make world of social class that is not an exact reflection of American Society. It is about the different social classes and how the media plays a part in the way they are seen by many people. Mainly the general public, the media has people thinking they can be rich and famous like the people in the television shows (Framing Class, Vicarious living, and Conspicuous Consumption 314).” They require attention in order to receive equal opportunity for their future. Not only economically but health outcomes too between rich and poor.
As a progressive society, we are to hold everyone accountable for all acts of discrimination due to race, sexuality, gender, or any other non-controllable social factor so why is it sometimes different when it comes to treating individuals who are white? Removing inequality racism will bring society and people with more hope and better opportunities.
