- Omi & Winant, Bonilla-Silva, and Loveman all have different approach in understanding the distinction between ethnicity and race. Omi & Winant and Bonilla-silva all made a distinction between ethnicity and race, and study race through the lens of power relation, while Loveman argued that it is important to study these two side by side. DuBois articulate blackness as both race and ethnicity with the approach of “Double-Consciousness”. First, I will examine Omi and Winant’s approach.

The Case For Establishing A Balance Between Teacher Race And Ethnicity And Student Race / Ethnicity

- Ethnic Matching The case for establishing a balance between teacher race/ethnicity and student race/ethnicity has been made by several notable authors of literature (Dee, 2004; Eddy & Easton-Brooks, 2011; Gay, 2000; Ogbu, 2003). This balance may be struck by the institution of a system of ethnic matching which pairs teachers and students together based on racial and/or ethnic grounds. It appears that African American students are given less attention or praise, and ignored or reprimanded with alarming regularity more than their white counterparts by white teachers (Casteel, 2001)....   [tags: Race, Racism, White American, African American]

- The Primordialist approach depicts the nation as based upon a natural, organic community, which defines the identity of its members, who feel an innate and emotionally powerful attachment to it. (5) (Brown 2000) This means that to primordialists the meaning of nationalism correlates with an inherent or instinctual loyalty to the nation. This loyalty to the nation arises from strong kinship bonds which manifest into unified national identity drawn from an ethnic core. Through the primordialist framework there is a one-to-one link between ethnicity and national identity; giving identity the characteristic of being fixed....   [tags: Nationalism, Nation, Ethnic group, Race]

- Ethnicity is an important yet highly imprecise concept in contemporary Mexico. Students of Mexican society, as well as Mexicans themselves, identify two broad ethnic groups based on cultural rather than racial differences: mestizos and Indians. Each group has a distinct cultural viewpoint and perceives itself as different from the other. At the same time, however, group allegiances may change, making measurement of ethnic composition problematic at best. Originally racial designators, the terms mestizo and Indian have lost almost all of their previous racial connotation and are now used entirely to designate cultural groups....   [tags: Papers]
