Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Other Countries and Racism

with one comment

I know that the title of this book is called Minorities in American Society, but Im hoping or at least would like it if we could also look at racism outside of other countries. There are specific race problems in countries of Europe, Africa, Latin America, Asia, and Australia. As I mentioned in class one time KFC was criticized for airing a blatently racisist advertisement in Australia. While I know that we also live here and see the effects of racism, I would like to see how our treatment of minorities in American Society compares to that of others. If our “colorblind” system is being utilized in other countries or if there is more full blown racism. Again I know that it probably won’t happen since the point of this course is to study minorities in American Society, But I think it would furthur our understanding of the concepts discussed in this class by looking at other aspects of the world.

  1. I completely agree with you. If we knew a little bit more about the different types of racism in other countries and studied that, maybe we could figure out a way to solve some of the problems of racism in our society.
