SOCIOLOGICAL IMAGINATION2C.W. Mills' Sociological ImaginationIntroductionAs written by C.W. Mills, the sociological imagination is concerned with both the imaginationand views that people have on their lives. The writer's primary motive is to alter people'sperspectives on many circumstances they face in their lives. Mills uses her proposition toencourage the people in society and enable them to see the more comprehensive picture and notblame themselves in case of troubles (Nuesse and Wright, 2009). This idea is informed thatpersonal problems can't exist independently because most of these emotional issues connect tosocietal occurrences.A person can blame himself for the tribulations being encountered, but the real issue is otherindividuals' actions in society. The kind of sociological imagination factor that is going to behandled in this paper is unemployment. This is an area of concern in psychology because it iscommon and is caused by issues that are not necessarily personal. To illustrate Mill's theory'srealities, a problem, specifically discrimination, will be explained in length. Race, socialstructure, and culture are the sociological concepts relevant to the issue discussed here (Landis,2009). Race refers to the discrimination against skin color, and in this case, it does not refer toblack people but rather a Caucasian. The social structure is how people's interactive power isplanned in a society. The last concept is the culture that is defined as people's way of life. Thesethree concepts influence discrimination because it is a vice that is constructed socially.Discrimination based on skin color, for example, is an idea that people create in a social groupand decide to place it on another.
