Racism in the Modern Reality
The modern world is the world of Research. Research and development are seen as the backbone of the modern economy, and the developed nations allocate increasingly high amounts of funding for the Research and development departments within them. The highest amount of research and development is allotted in the US, and the states append as much as they can in the western world and the developed economies for this purpose (Msuya, 2016). However, the states in the worse financial situations end up with less capability to invest in R&D, and this becomes a big predicament for their overall growth. This research in all fields’ of natural and social sciences is important for the society. Racism is one of the leading causes of many of the problems that American society is facing today. The factors like economic inequality, high crime rate, alienation of minorities from the main public and a lot of such problems are caused due to the systematic racism (Ullucci, 2006). There is a strong need for debate from a moderate perspective on the issue to solve the problem that causes many other too. Racism has become a topic that is being talked about in a lot of circles in America, and there are small positive indicators regarding awareness that shows promise of more inclusive and tolerant American culture.
The race issues are a big problem even in the modern world where the global community sees America as the leader of the free world, but internally America is filled with intolerant and racist people. This research proposes to implement a moderate and central approach to the American society to implement the common sense as the driver of the society instead of racial biases. The study focuses on the common aspects of humanity instead of the color, race, religion and other biases that create borders within communities (Lee & Roemer, 2006; Mosse, 1985). The project proposes to focus on implanting the common grounds between different ideologies centered on race relations in America. The main argument of this research is that the tension regarding race relations can be moderated if the human needs are kept at the priority, and the focus on physical and cultural differences is lessened. The matters of race in the current world should not be focused on so much as the materialism is the base of modern society. The materialistic gains and peace can only be achieved by ending Chaos.
The systematic study of society with the help of the books and articles will be taken up for this research. The research will see the theoretical perspectives on the making of the race and how the concept is defined. The theoretical perspective on the race relations cannot be seen without thinking about the existence of the race regarding being socially constructed or a physically present reality (Back & Solomos, 2000). The race is a socially constructed reality that is based on the physical differences and almost all of the societies consider it a point of dissimilarity but making it a point of dissatisfaction and animosity with other people is logically unrealistic. No two people from any two races look the same, so looking different should not be considered as a point of deviation of people’s priorities. The cultural differences between black, white, Hispanic and other minorities in America are not because of the physical differences, but the base of these problems is the systematic fear of people from other races that started in the very start of the contact between the peoples from different races (Sniderman & Tetlock, 1986). In the modern world, there is a complete understanding of people having no difference on the basis of the races there should be a focus on how every different person is beautifully different and at the same time can become an important part of the global communities machinery. The people no matter what race they belong to, contribute to the global economic system and should be treated according to the importance that they hold in the world.
The relations between the races in America in the current scenario are at their best in a long history of extreme racially inappropriate history. Black people have the same rights the white people, but the systematic biases and racist past are still haunting the masses because of the remaining justifications for racism. The society seemed to be on the right track until the election of President Donald Trump who has been called as a racist and a bigoted person. The new strained ties between the races can be bridged by working on finding common ground and removing the biases from the system like racism in policing. The suggestions of the present knowledge on the subject of racism are that if the new government does not take any extreme measures according to the Republican racist whims, there is a chance that race relations will see a positive and upward trend.
The implications of race relations are quite severe for the American public safety. The race relations can make many other related problems dormant that are the outcomes of the racist practices. If the race relations go up to the mark of idealism, the relationships between people will get normal, and the inclusion of black youth in the public life will get them into a more normalized scholastic and social environment that would make them positive members of the society. The inclusion of all races in the American culture will remove the reservations and concerns of the minorities and will build a more tolerant and constructive community. The race relations impede the growth of American economy and social and justice system, the American nation without injustice will thrive.
