Humans have always treated culture as a basis for making decisions, and the societal realism is a defining influence that gives oneself identity and respect. However, one hardly comes to realize in the lifetime that he or she is subjecting shim or herself to racial pressures needlessly because the world of capitalism works against the working class according to perceived and accepted worldview in this regard.
The major argument of the articles is to highlight a reality that covers one’s ability to find pride in his or her racial background and professional one as well. The failure of lagging races is not due to governmental lethargy, but it is due to lacking positivity in the mindsets of people who may have a black skin. The articles do not explain the hermit’s trend that cannot allow foreign races to excel in the journey and competition of professional development. The African Americans do not appear on the list of billionaires, and they do not own big corporations, and the suffering racial classes would always end up with a managerial job, and their business ventures are viewed with skepticism to say the least. The efforts of professional stature do not make a huge difference in one’s life if the surrounding society does not value the contributions, and the blacks suffer because they have to live their lives in the dark while the whites have to earn all the fame. The whites have to suffer through their years as members of the middle working class, but their energies do not go in vein, but for blacks, the case is rather vice versa, and the social discrimination has taken a new form in recent years, and the slogan of equalization is a method to promote inequality as the leaders have to use abilities to fulfill their capitalistic goals, and therefore, they deliberately allow the blacks to progress to a certain professional degree, and afterwards, they hit a glass ceiling that does not permit them to develop further. The entrepreneurial adventures sponsored by the members of disadvantaged races do not enjoy great level of acceptability from the society, and therefore, the relevant social parts will have to face pain regarding creation of legitimacy in the community.
With the passage of time, the human race is developing an understanding about the value of professional growth in their lives, and “What we don’t have in this country, in other words, is anyone like Mike Leigh, who makes art out of working-class lives by refusing to prettify them”. The racial identity is a veil that helps people in terms of telling others that they do not have the competencies the industrial arena requires at this time. In the world of capitalism, everyone has a price whether or not they know that, but the lack of professional growth will send a white man into chaos, and the same element can cause a black person to achieve greatness in life so the racial identity would appear to be an irrelevancy because the world has accepted the fact that tone of one’s skin does not have anything to do with his or her internal personality.
The unsuccessful people believe that they have a birth defect, and therefore, they are failing at their professions, but it is not the case at all because human effort and struggle would always create the better part of success, and racial elements will just wither away with the passage of time when the people will take charge of their lives. On the other hand, cultural diversity is a beautiful notion to experience if oneself possess an open mind.
However, a Chinese family that invited an American one over the dinner on the occasion of Christmas Eve did not develop shyness about the culture that it belonged to, and “On Christmas Eve I saw that my mother had outdone herself in creating a strange menu. She was pulling black veins out of the backs of fleshy prawns”. The Chinese part of the event took some serious steps in order to make the exposure memorable to say the least. Additionally, I have an understanding that. causes me to believe that our own beliefs about “Who we are” creates a perpetuating affect onto others, and if we present ourselves with pride, and work in order to have professional development then, the social respect will just come by eventually. However, the people of working class have to put in a lot of effort in order to earn the respect of the masses, and the attribute of success would always remain a function of one’s racial pride and efforts those he or she is inputting in order to have professional progress.
The analyzed articles have identified each one of the critical elements those can collectively abet oneself to earn self worth and social highpoint, but the suppressed cultures do not respect themselves, and therefore, they develop a poor social outlook. The leading factions of the societies are attempting to equalize social grounds for everyone, but apparently, the disadvantaged races cannot comprehend the changing world order, and they have a grooming to behave illegally in order to ensure their survival, but they do not require illicit behaviors in order to survive in the novel and globalized world, and the suppressed social classes developed a negative presumption about the leaders over time, and that is creating a trust deficit between the two groups of people.
This paper has an intellectual design to discuss the social problems those the suppressed social factions of the American community confront in general. The situation is not that grim because the conditions have improved over the centuries, and the slaves have grown into professionals, and having a managerial job is far better than working as a laborer, and the progression is taking place, and the Africans have to continue the struggle in this regard, but they have to go to extra mile in order to eliminate negativism from their mindsets in order to fulfill their possible destinies.
The companies are melting their harsh and brash practices in order to transform the corresponding workplaces into facilities those should not receive significant influences from workers’ genders, religions, and race. The companies are operating with the help of enhancing humanism in themselves, and therefore, there is little room for the attribute of racism to kick in, but the top managers with white skin have shown cold attitudes towards black members of the boards because the former group of officers doubt that their colleagues do not have the guts needed to make difficult decisions.
It is only matter of time before blackness and whiteness would develop into a complete irrelevancy in years those are yet to come. The common American identity would bless the citizens of the country with the humanistic ideology that could impress them to respect each other as humans, and the element of social equality would prevail if we would have the confidence to integrate humanism in our lives.
