VALUES AND ETHNICITY?

 

Think about the ethnic group with which you most identify. What do you like about your ethnic identity? Which social or cultural factors in your background may contribute to barriers in relationships with clients from other groups? List some of the values of your ethnic group. Which of these values do you also hold? Which of these values do you no longer believe in?

Explanation

I like the family interaction within my ethnicity. Within the black community family, ties are of utmost importance guess it's something we brought from the motherland. We've got cousins, aunties uncles across several sisters, but we still value them. During family functions, all relatives must be present in the function. It doesn't matter whether it's a funeral function or a wedding ceremony they must attend.

The cultural factor of religion; for us, black people, religion is central in our lives. We tie nearly everything to religion. Sickness, bad luck, etc., are all linked to religion. This may bring barriers with other groups since, for us, we hold religion supreme. Illness is seen as a form of punishment from god or maybe bad luck. Other groups may see this as normal things that happen to people in their daily lives. They may not take religion seriously as we do since they may not be as religious as we are, but religion gives us hope and the strength to move forward.

Some of the values include;

Individual values; they include

honour, respect, loyalty, truthfulness,

Collective values include;

Respect; respect of the community, respect your elders and other members of the society

Integrity, honesty, and transparency when dealing with your fellow community members. It should also spread to other members of the society; it doesn't have to be your own community members

Hope; no matter how dull the present is, the future is going to be alright. Hope is what keeps us moving, confidence that the future will bring good tidings.

Collaboration; as a people of one ethnic group, we must collaborate in matters it doesn't matter whether they are it's a much important matter or a matter of less importance collaboration is key to our success.

The values that I uphold are values such as honor, respect, and loyalty. They are essential when dealing with my colleagues' friends and also other people. These values are what earn a black man respect and honor in the community.

Hope is what I have lost my belief in. since the first black man arrived in America, we've always been targets. Each day it's on the rise. You give yourself hope that it will be alright, yet discrimination is still on the rise. Better living without hope that it's going to be fine than living with hope only to be disappointed on each and every single day.
