Racist Ideologies Sexist Ideologies People can be classified into categories on the basis of physical characteristics. A close correspondence exists between physical traits and characteristics such as language, dress, personality, intelligence, and athletic ability. Physical attributes such as skin color and hair texture are so significant that they explain and determine behavior and social, economic, and political inequalities that exist between members of different racial categories. People can be classified into two categories-male and female. A close correspondence exists between physical traits (primary sex characteristics) and characteristics such as emotional control, body language, personality, intelligence, sexual desire, and athletic ability. Physical attributes such as genital appearance are so significant that they explain and determine behavior and the social, economic, and political inequalities that exist between men and women.

Eliminating Racism and Sexism Make an effort to see similarities as well as understanding differences between people of different genders and ethnicities. Learn to recognize that differences in power and privilege shape relationships between people. Remember the socially constructed nature of ethnic and gender categories. Even so, keep in mind that the experience of the significance of gender and ethnicity is real in its consequences for life chances, quality of life, perceptions, and evaluations.

Eliminating Racism and Sexism Develop the intellectual discipline to recognize race/gender thinking, a habit of thought where people permit themselves to think of human groups without the vivid sense that groups consist of individuals and that individuals display the full range of human differences and potentials. (my paraphrase) Carefully consider every situation where race or gender classification occurs and ask whether this instance forwards attempts to correct past injustices and create a fair and equitable society or does it contribute to the maintenance and perpetuation of injustice and inequality.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
