What vision of the future has academics and scholars pinned on Hawaii’s high-rate of intermarriage? On what facts and hopes have they based this vision? In Olson’s view, how likely is their vision of a racially-mixed future to be accurate?

In the essay The End of Race: Hawaii and The Mixing of People by Steve Olson it talks about the growing high level of intermarriage and racial mixing within Hawaii and the USA at large. The hope is that this leads to the steaded erosion of race as a divider within society,  but the paper is cautious to say that this will definitively end to racism.  On this note, Steve says “Despite the high rate of intermarriage here, ethnic and racial tensions haven’t really disappeared. They have changed into something else. Something less threatening, perhaps, but still divisive. Hawaii may well be a harbinger of a racially mixed future. But it won’t be the future many people expect.” Pra11

 

What are the implications for “ethnic thinking” of recent genetic research showing that “every group is a mixture of many previous groups, a fleeting collection of genetic variants drawn from a shared genetic legacy” (253)?

Ethnic Thinking is a type of thinking that forms, when groups of share geographical area develop a, hated between each other. These people are not very genetical different. “The antagonists in these conflicts have different ethnicities, but they have been so closely linked biologically throughout history that they have not developed marked physical differences.”  Pra12.

7 March in nutshell

A social identity is what everyone gets to see. It’s the you who goes to the bank, it’s the you who ride the train to work, and, it’s the one who talks to your acquaintances at the office. It usually reflects social norms with minor degrees of variants in a variety of different aspects. These slight variances are only small indicators of what lies below the immediate surface.  Weather-conscious or not we all have these small little tells which signal the true person we are below. Our personal identities are far more elusive. Maybe only a hand full of people will get to see this side of you the real you behind the mask that lured them in. Even then it can be very difficult for one to connect with their true self. As it can take years of self-reflection to truly get at who you are as a person. So, if it is the case that it’s hard to contact with your personal identity can your social identity affect who you are? For instance, Ta-Nehisi Coates as a child grew up on the streets of Baltimore and his social identity was all-consuming. This was due to the danger of the streets. The fact that if there was even the smallest crack in the social identity it could result in your death. Mike Rose grew in a similar situation but dealt with it differently he ignores it. He just kept to himself and didn’t pay attention to the streets.

 

Our minds and our relationships kind of go hand in hand. From day one of our lives, our minds are shaped by our caretakers whether these are our mother and father or Legal guardians. They   Are for a time some of the only human beings you know and the only ones you get to learn from and Thus shape an immense part of your life and how you think. They can pass on cultural traditions, local social norms, and, mindsets and these sorts of things shape how you think and how your mind works. This also suddenly influences how you seek out relationships with other people. Thus, our mindsets affect how we find new relationships. Coates parents had to teach him about the street from an early age and how they swallow people whole. They had to stop that, so they need to shape him to survive the streets. To make sure he learned the lessons that would be crucial for him to survive they would need to take some extreme measures, but all necessary. Rose’s family were Strangers in an unknown land not knowing what kind of environment, they work in for the rules to survive they just isolate themselves from it, but this also isolates them from other people as their struggles go unnoticed by the community.

 

Our lives and our life paths again just like our minds and our relationships share a heavy correlation with each other.  As the way, someone lives their life affects where they go in life. Now the way someone lives their life obviously can be in varying degrees of control of the person who lives it. So, people are not totally responsible for their life path, but it is still expected that at points in which would have required self-agency that someone takes it in order to get themselves a respectable life path. however, this does bring up how circumstantial life path are at times. It’s not to say that people cannot achieve a goal even if they work for it. It’s more saying that certain people are set up better to achieve certain goals. This inequality means that certain people tend to end up in certain places in society while others tend to end up in other places. For example, a person from an upper-class family is more likely to stay in the upper class then someone from the lower classes to enter the upper classes. Now you can look at this in a lot of ways like one way is that there is a systemic biased for people being the upper class staying in the upper class and for people who were poor to stay poor or you could see it as a table of probabilities in ratios that usually trend out to stay wherever they are. Coates Would find himself at the far end probability of getting out of a situation if it wasn’t for his love of writing he would have never gotten out just like Rose.

 

So much affect someone’s path where they’re from, who is they, family, what goals that what to accomplish. Where the limit is what education you have and what biases surrounding you. Working harder and better to climb the ladder of work and accomplishment.

What important things does Rose learn from Jack MacFarland in the classroom that unlocks the door to the upper-middle-class for him? To what degree was what Rose learned in the classroom from MacFarland available to Coates in his classrooms? Why else is MacFarland so important to Rose’s success? Did young Ta-Nehisi Coates have similar figures in his life? What’s different about the kind of mentorship each young man received?

Rose gain perspective from Jack MacFarland. He says he says at the end of the essay. It let him think beyond his neighborhood if only for the shortest time. Well, it wants the teachers that were able to get him out of the neighborhood and that’s what coats locked in his classroom like if he did show interest in his school’s coach would have been ridiculed and killed. As far as I’m aware coats had to work his way out It didn’t have the pleasure of a figure to guide him. They built themselves from the mentorships.

I Just Wanna Be Average

What should we make of Rose’s description on pp. 13-18 of his family house and the mixed-race, mixed-ethnicity South Los Angeles neighborhood he grew up in? Try to capture both Rose’s emotional feelings about the places he grew up and the objective dangers he very casually suggests he faced there. Compare Rose’s experiences of his home and neighborhood to Coates’s.

the neighborhood was a result of Economic straits which Take people from all different walks of life and put them all one place. Nobody chooses to be in this neighborhood everybody’s there by necessity or worse and some people are mad. Mad that economic and social circumstances have relegated them to this place. Mad that in a lot drawing they weren’t even they were shoved into a pit of poverty. That makes people violent and hungry for what little power they can accumulate.

 

At the end of this long segment on his parents immigration and work experiences and his boyhood growing up in a mixed-race, mixed-ethnicity neighborhood in South Los Angeles, Rose writes that he “developed a picture of human existence that rendered it short and brutish or sad and aimless or long and quiet…. When, years later, I was introduced to humanistic psychologists…, with their visions of self actualization…., it all sounded like a glorious fairy tale, a magical account of a world full of possibility, full of hope and empowerment. Sinbad and Cinderella couldn’t have been more fanciful” (p. 18).

I guess it’s talking about how he lived in the situation that people idealize has a cauldron of adversity that forges strength but rarely remember about the people who are still stuck in the cauldron. People keep glorifying it but it is still a truly bad place to grow up.

Perhaps we should return to Mecca 2/21/19

Coates writes that “laws of school” were “aimed at something distant and vague” (p. 25). Pull together material from throughout the section of the reading to explain what precisely (and there’s more than one thing) the laws of schools were aimed at.

The Place that you supposed to be a process of enlightened yourself. It’s supposed to take you from who you are to who you want to be, but in the neighborhood, it is a far dream. It is a system that does not help them but chained them by the right leg.

 

Coates emphasizes the role of reading and writing played in his life in at least two different places in this segment. Pull together that material and explain Coates’s commitment to reading and writing. What adult figures were important to him as he learned to read and write for his own purposes?

On pages 26 and 29 two strong connection to writing and reading can be found. On page 26 Shows a connection to reading as he recalled something, he read in college a few lines from something in reading before he dropped out.  “Ecstasy, coke you say you love its poison. Schools are where I learn they should be burned its poison”. This quote feeds back into how he saw school as the shackle on the right foot and how it fits in with the other idea that the streets are the left shackle.  On page 29 he talks about how his grandmother told him how to write in the way school didn’t teach him how to emphasize the importance of his family in this time of his life that how it wasn’t the institutions that were supposed to help him.  it was the people around him.
