Sample Essay on Responses to the Classroom Behavior of young Black women

Responses to the Classroom Behavior of young Black women

Introduction

Gender and racism is the creation of the society (Dabhoiwala, 16). Among the most affected groups are the black women who are negatively perceived from an early age. Young African American women are punished from an early age. I feel black women are disproportionately represented in the United Kingdom. The study seeks to highlight the disparity between races among school going children and this pattern in adulthood. The research will further highlight how black females are segregated within the society. Qualitative and quantitative methods will be applied in finding out the disparity between whites and black females. The study expects to reveal more black females being affected by the racial disparities.

Background

Black children have experienced diverse forms of punishments for minor mistakes in the academic institutions due to their skin color (World Socialism, 12). Previous studies reveal how a student was kicked out of class after sneezing aloud. The major problem was that of the variation in the racial makeup in the school with the majority of the administration being whites, which often leads to varied emotional understanding. Most of the blacks are misrepresented as aggressive as their voices are mostly deeper than the whites. Cultural variation that demands emphatic speaking and variation in parenthood are known as some of the causes of the difference in behavior (Ehrenreich, 32).

Other than racial segregation, black women have been segregated due to their gender. Sexism has been a word greatly related to the discrimination against women due to gender (Dabhoiwala, 3). From birth, women have been conditioned to assume the roles set aside for women only. These roles include household chores and female dressing. Men and boys have been set by the society to live in liberty and perform duties, as they desire. Regardless of the personality and preferences, women will be limited to feminine stereotyped gender roles. The female child is exposed to this challenge way still in education. Girls are encouraged to embrace arts while boys are encouraged to choice mathematics and sciences. This pressure moves up to adolescence where girls are forced to model themselves to attract the opposite gender. Many of the females later resort to feminine careers such as nursing and teaching instead of following their heart’s desires. I feel the major problem women face in the modern work place is absence of welfare unions to fight for their rights. Previous studies assert that social feminism has been instrumental in the fight for the women’s rights especially those of blacks. From the feminism theory, women can acquire their liberation by ending of the economic and cultural repression. Social feminism encompasses Marxist and radical feminism (Dabhoiwala, Para 12). According to Marxist feminism, capitalism greatly contributes to the female segregation within a society. Radical feminism asserts that gender and patriarchy spread female segregation. The applied methodology will be combined method. Quantitative analysis will capture the figures and enable analysis of the information to offer detailed and informed decisions while qualitative is necessary to critically obtain information, which cannot be statistically derived. Primary collection methods will include interviews and surveys while secondary methods comprise of analysis of previously carried out research. I believe that the findings will reveal theories related to black female segregation like feminism theory. The findings will besides incorporate statistical figures of oppressed colored women in UK.

Action Plan

Time Frame Activity

Black women have been segregated due to their color and gender from a very young age. Previous studies have revealed that some of them endure critical punishments in schools for minor mistakes. This study seeks to highlight challenges black women have to endure from young age in the UK. The study seeks to focus on their plight, their struggles and pain and strengths. This study will firstly carry out an observation on the struggles of these black children in schools. The researchers are to visit schools and institutions and carry out a survey on the number of black children in comparison to the number of white children. Researchers will find out the ratio of black to white to other races administrators in schools and the mode of punishments within the schools. They will observe how teachers and administrators are carrying out punishments to various students and the form and number of punishments students are to obtain in a given period. The major focus will be on the treatment of administrators and teachers on students. This focus will highlight the plight of black females under 16 years in the UK.

7th January, 2016 to 5th February, 2016

 

10th February, 2016 to 16th March, 2016 Researchers will involve black women in discussions and private interviews where the participants will be questioned on the challenges they have had to endure in public due to their skin color and gender. The major group to focus on are the These discussions and interviews will be carried out after acquiring written and oral permission from the contributors. The discussions will be recorded for analysis. Researchers can direct the women by having a set of questions. In case more clarification needs to be made, the interviewer will have to question the interviewee. This data will assist in confirming the hypothesis that black women are segregated and negatively treated in the UK
20th March, 2015 to 21st April, 2016 Researchers are to review previously collected research on the issue of black women in the UK. Articles, books and journals to be reviewed must have been written within ten years ago. Therefore, collected information will have to be in light of the present policies against racialism and segregation. These articles will reflect previously collected findings.
28th April, 2016 to 16th May, 2016

 

 

All the findings will have to be collected together and analyzed. Qualitative and quantitative method have been applied in data collection and will be applied in the analysis of the collected data. Qualitative analysis is necessary to critically obtain information which cannot be statistically derived through Analysis of secondary data. Quantitative analysis will capture the  figures and enable analysis of the information to offer detailed and informed decisions through Interview and survey. From the studies and results, I hope to find that Social feminism theories and feminism theories to focus on theories related to black female segregation like feminism theory. I hope to prove that Social feminism has been instrumental in the fight for the women rights especially the blacks. From the feminism theory, I hope to prove that women can acquire their liberation by ending of the economic and cultural repression.

Social feminism encompasses Marxist and radical feminism. From Marxist feminism, I hope to confirm that capitalism greatly contributes to the female segregation within a society. In Radical feminism I desire to find that gender and patriarchy spread female segregation. The studies are to prove the idea of current gender roles; as ‘natural’, and therefore unchangeable, is mistaken, how and why segregation occurs and that irrespective of  feminist movement, sexual equality is a goal worth striving for within the context of capitalism.

The findings are expected to reveal that black women are negatively perceived from an early age and that black women are disproportionately represented in the UK. From the study, disparity between races among school going children is expected to be high as more black females are segregated within the society. From the qualitative and quantitative methods, more black females are to be more affected by the racial disparities.

 

 

 

Conclusion

Gender and racism as an act of the society greatly affected groups are the black women.  Primary collection methods will include interviews and surveys while secondary methods comprise of analysis of previously carried out research. The findings are expected to reveal theories related to black female segregation like feminism theory. From the feminism theory, women are negatively perceived from an early age as young African American women are punished. Black women are disproportionately represented in the UK. From the study, disparity between races among school going children is high as more black females are segregated within the society. From the qualitative and quantitative methods, more black females are affected by the racial disparities. Feminism theory asserts that women can acquire their liberation by ending economic and cultural repression. Social feminism encompasses Marxist and radical feminism which highlights  female segregation within a society. Radical feminism asserts that gender and patriarchy spread female segregation.
