In Caucasia, the theme of ‘racial etiquette’ plays a big role in the society that Birdie lives in and this proves Omi and Winant’s claim about how race is socially constructed ( Omi and Winant 4). For example, “Rules shaped by our perception of race in a comprehensively racial society determine the ‘presentation of self, distinction of status, and appropriate modes of conduct” (Omi and Winant 4). In this statement, Omi and Winant meant that people tend to make rules for classifying a racial group based on one’s physical features and disregarding their true ‘race’. An example from Caucasia that proves Omi and Winant’s argument is, “Who’s that is she Rican? I thought this was supposed to be a black school” ( Senna 43).
How we are categorized in the society? Usually a class is defined as the set or category of things having same property and differentiated from others by kind, type or quality. Class is also defined as the system of categorizing society where people are divided into various group based on economy, education, social status, occupation or race.

Slavery, caste system, feudal estate and social class are all different stratification systems (Moore, 2010). Societies can be divided into different stratas which are made up of a hierarchy of unequal social group; this is known as social stratification.

Equal right should be given to all; we should have the same economic rights, political rights, social rights and the same amount of opportunities. Everyone should have economical rights, because working hard for something that is desired should be rewarded. Everyone should also have political rights because it gives the nation as an entirety the right to make a decision rather than just certain people. Social rights are also something everyone should have because it allows everyone to obtain an education, house, right to healthcare, and other important things.

Modern society’s understanding of race and racism developed as a socially constructed concept. Race arises as a form of self-identity that must be appropriated or denied. It is a type of personal responsibility because it becomes the individual’s decision to accept or reject the identity that society deems adequate.

... ... middle of paper ... ... diversity is valued, different cultures are respected and included in the organizational structure. Diversity management efforts are based on a voluntary commitment to accept each individual’s uniqueness and to respect and learn from individual differences. In fact, diversity management efforts require a great deal of commitment particularly since it includes more than just image based differences (Cole, Salimath). Because it includes all differences and actively works to change prejudicial attitudes and beliefs, diversity management is the perfect complement to affirmative action. Together they can create an inclusive society that is race- and gender-conscious.
