Shanita Farmer Sociology in a Global Perspective SOC110 A02 M1A3: The Application Paper I chose to read and write my paper on the article, “Perceived discrimination and early substance abuse among American Indian children”, (Whitebeck, Chen, & Stubben, 2001). The social problem that researchers are investigating in this article is the how discrimination leads to the consequences of early substance abuse in the youngsters within the American Indian population. In this article, it describes the social issues of how discrimination leads to anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, and the abuse of drugs and alcohol at a young age. This is an interesting revision because there are a lot of writings on the effects that discrimination has on adults but little on the effects concerning early juvenile improvement. In this reading, it explains how the examination of the impending intervening effects of the internalization and externalization indications on the affiliation amongst apparent perception and the premature start of substance misuse to have a better appreciation of the particular contrivances that are at work (Whitebeck, Chen, & Stubben, 2001). The exposure of discrimination shows that it is a stress factor among adults and that it may be a predominantly devious threat issue in the growth of the children open to it. In the early childhood years, children are apprehensive about being part of the “group” and being alike to one another and in this stage of a child’s life, the need to adapt escalates.

    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.
