A Strong Sense Of Community

- A strong sense of community is not usually an association one makes when thinking about the urban ghettos. It is assumed that inner-city neighbourhoods, which lack formal structures and services, are home to poverty and deviance. However, for Sudhir Venkatesh, author of “Gang Leader for a Day”, a community is what he encounters when observing residents of the largest housing projects in the United States, the Robert Taylor Homes. In poor, racialized neighbourhoods such as the Robert Taylor Homes, there is an idea that there is no social structure in place to provide guidance to young people, who end up getting in trouble....   [tags: Sociology, Criminology, Crime, Urban decay]

A Strong Sense Of American Identity By The Eve Of The Revolution

- When analyzing the change over time and continuities in the time period from 1763-1776, many things changed to evoke a strong sense of colonial American identity by the Eve of the Revolution. According to John Adams, "The revolution was effected before the war commenced. It was in the minds and hearts of the people." As the British continued to impose many injustices on the colonials, a sense of American patriotism was kickstarted, which has endured for a few centuries. These fore-mentioned injustices combined with new fundamental ideas and the continuity of the unfair British rule largely impacted the mind sets of many colonials....   [tags: American Revolution, Thirteen Colonies]

Is a strong sense of national pride tantamount to isolationist thinking?

- Is a strong sense of national pride tantamount to isolationist thinking. One of the common criticisms of national pride is the development of xenophobic, “Us vs. Them” thinking. Living in Canada, a nation which has a relatively small population of approximately 33,390,000, compared to America, a country of an estimated 303,824,000 people (Central Intelligence Agency, 2008), gave me a glimpse of how this kind of thinking can work.

The Reclamation Of Language And Its Effects On The Community And Developing A Strong Sense Of Self

- Reclamation of language often facilitates the process of creating community and developing a strong sense of self -- this is explicitly the case for individuals who identify as asexual. Asexuality is an identity typically stable from childhood but finally labeled in later young adulthood via exploring what it means to not experience sexual desire or will to engage in sexual intercourse through the internet (Scherrer 621). The word itself itself is a combination of the prefix ‘a’ meaning ‘not’ or ‘without’ and the noun ‘sexuality’, translating into being without sexual desires -- it is important to note that such direct definitions are not to suggest that sexual desires are innate....   [tags: Black people, African American, Identity, Race]
