    We can only know this through self-examination” (p. 39). One must first determine what must be changed before being able to change it. We all have a duty to examine our belief structure and the behaviors of those around us. If we frequent a business that discriminates against African-Americans, we are indirectly racist. If we hold beliefs or attitudes that are racist, we have a duty to acknowledge and alter them. Reconciliation begins with personal responsibility, and we share this burden collectively.…

    The nation we live in is comprised of many different kinds of people with different kinds of cultures. In a society that is dominated by a system designed to perpetuate white privilege this then leads to the subjugation of certain cultures that do not adhere to the dominant white culture. This subjugation can lead to conflicts that arise when an oppressed population goes unheard. Becoming aware of this and trying to actively disrupt and challenge this system is immensely difficult (Xiong, 2017). There are, however organizations that are trying to push back against this system that continues to create vast inequalities. One such organization that is trying to do something about these inequalities is Operation Fresh Start (OFS). I will be analyzing this organization’s policies and practices about cultural competency based on interviews I conducted with staff who are currently working at OFS. I will then offer ideas on where improvement can be made by the organization to better provide a more culturally competent environment.…

    Credibility Of Honesty

    • 4 Pages

    Sartori ((2002). p122) argues that credibility relates to a state’s perceived honesty and the ability of the actor to bluff successfully. In this case Actor B judges Actor A’s credibility by assessing the previous and perceived future behaviour of Actor A. Actor B is far less likely to escalate a situation when Actor A has a reputation of following through with threats, i.e. a reputation for honesty.…

    I am going to focus it on the injustices that African Americans continue to face in the United States today. That being, I know exactly what I need to get out of my interviewees, but it is probably a sensitive subject for some of the people I need to interview. I am not black, and I don’t know what it feels like to face this discrimination in everyday life. I can understand the tenderness that African Americans must feel then, when revealing and talking about their experiences with discrimination. I would think then, that it must be especially sensitive to talk about with a person from the race that they receive this everyday discrimination. It will be interesting to hear all the different types of prejudice that my interviewees have received throughout their lives. I would imagine that it ranges from just a look, or the way white Americans act around them, to voiced and physical altercations between themselves and white Americans. Hacker at times seems to be speaking directly to African Americans as he describes these altercations, “So many of the contacts you have with them (white Americans) are stiff and uneasy, hardly worth the effort.” But to me, that is exactly what the problem is. Why would it not be worth the effort? The first step to take for the uneasiness between the two races to cease to exist is for us (all people) to stop seeing color because once we act differently around the other is where…

    Establishing a credible character is especially important when it comes to character. It would be impossible to persuade a colleague or customer if one's credibility was damaged from a previous experience. One way to partially restore that credibility would be to apologize for any mistakes that have been made. Again, credibility is a necessity when it comes to persuasion messages. The ultimate goal of a persuasion message is to influence a person to believe in the same idea as you. Weak credibility typically means that you are untrustworthy which would affect your ability to change a person's perception. Additionally, it is important to strongly development your idea before sharing the message. A speaker is more likely to persuade an audience…

    Truth Telling Violations

    The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast the truth telling violations presented in the Abraham and Rehab Bible stories. Both stories are indicative of deception that demonstrate how if people are placed in a position of uncertainty can lose their faith in performing a moral obligation which is telling the truth regardless of the situation. Extreme circumstances can hinder the decision making process and can lead to deception. The ideology of truth telling is the mere fact that God teaches us that deception is wrong and as individuals refraining from violating truth telling is God’s will.…

    Around the country, people of color will tell you that they’ve been subjected to a government that doesn’t have their best interest in mind, and, for generations, American people of color have been treated as second class citizens.
