On numerous occasions, we have perceived people being treated in a different and disparaging manner simply because they emanate from a certain cultural or ethnic group and community. This is something that takes place every day and is an ongoing heated issue of debate. This is an issue that has been in place for a very long time (Cohen, 2011). Ranging from captivity of the African people to oppression of African-Americans in the United States, racism is an issue that has caused a great deal of harm, anguish and pain to numerous people in the society. The same case is still ongoing in the present day, for instance, with the United States having the “Black Lives Matter” movement due to racial actions against young black people in different states. There has also been prejudice and racism shown against individuals emanating from the Muslim community being mistreated and oppressed simply because they are associated to terrorism and jihad.
Racism can be defined as an outcome of the intricate interaction in a certain community or society of a perception that is based on race with prejudice, discrimination, and typecasting. In particular, racism can be existent in social activities and actions that offer backing to the manifestation of partiality or repugnance in prejudiced practices. There are several ways in which individuals in the society partake in racism and that is through dissimilarity in ethnic and racial background, skin color, and culture. Taking into consideration that both prejudice and racism has generated a great deal of anguish and misery throughout history, it is imperative to make an attempt to understand how these two function. Racism and prejudice both allude to a deleterious perspective of a certain group of individuals and the sole basis of their affiliation to that group. In particular, racism is a distinctive form of prejudice, which encompasses damaging attitudes or behavior towards members of an ethnic group (Cohen, 2011).
In the image shown, the theory of racism is applied in the fact that the individual behind the desk is being biased and prejudicial to the individual making an application. In particular, racism can be perceived through the difference in skin color and racial background. To be specific, the individual, assuming is making an application, is blatantly told that they do not allow individuals like him, simply owing to the fact that he is black, while the other individual is white. The main focus on this particular paper is that of racial representation and stereotypes and more so from the perspective of a black male individual. The issues of discrimination and racism have historically and also in the contemporary been deemed high profile subject matters (Cohen, 2011).
The image being analyzed shows an individual experiencing prejudice simply due to his identity. However, it is socially and ethically proper to embrace and acknowledge one’s individuality and distinctiveness devoid of any fear of what the rest of the cultures or races perceive or deem it to be. More so, the white character in the image does not give any significant or rational details as to why the black individual is not allowed. It is prejudicial to reject or deny individuals something that they have a right to, simply because they come from a certain ethnic, cultural or racial group. This can also be perceived as a form of stereotyping. This is attributing a sequence of traits to a certain individual or persons centered on the one particular trait that indicates their affiliation to a certain group. This particular black individual in the image being discussed may be facing social prejudice due to stereotyping from the white individual simply because he emanates from the black group (Cohen, 2011).
We’ve all had one of those bad days when everything does not seem to go right at all. Perhaps you have the biggest meeting of the year that you have been waiting for, and you wake up extremely late, you spill juice all over your suit and you have to change again and then you get stuck in traffic. Sounds horrible right? Now imagine finding a clown trying to perform in the middle of the street and keeps holding up traffic. It would get you extremely upset, obviously right? You would probably get out of the car and personally carry the clown out of the street while cursing at him. I mean how can this happen today of all days, right? You would be flipping out at the thought of not closing such a meeting. This pretty much sums up what aggression is like as well as how it would come about.
Aggression may be outlined as detrimental behavior, which encroaches upon social pacts and may take account of measured intent to damage or harm another individual or object. More often than not aggression intensifies and gives rise to violence. In other instances, aggression has also been perceived as a varied notion incorporating a wide-ranging variability of behaviors (Conor and Barkley, 2004). In accordance to research undertaken, there has been the attempt to generate more standardized classifications in this behavioral domain by categorizing subtypes of aggression on the basis of statistical methods, for instance, factor analysis. All-encompassing research undertaken offers support and backing to two common subtypes, which include covert aggression and overt aggression. To begin with, overt aggression takes into account open or more apparent confrontational acts of aggression, for instance, bullying, verbal intimidations and physical fighting. On the contrary, covert aggression is pretty much furtive and concealed. Examples of this subtype include actions such as arson, theft and malingering (Conor and Barkley, 2004).
A thought-provoking type of classification divides aggression into two types, which are: adaptive and maladaptive forms. To begin with, there is adaptive aggression, which is also referred to as appropriate aggression. This form of aggression is said to take place in the interest of safeguarding the uprightness or continued existence of the individual. Taking this definition into consideration, a starving teenager who steals snacks from a supply store so as to eat, or a youth who commonly fights others who constantly endeavor or make a habit of stealing his possessions would be exhibiting adaptive aggression. Quite the opposite, maladaptive aggression is not directed at guarding or shielding the individual. In accordance to Conor and Barkely (2004), this form of aggression takes place throughout numerous contexts and in the absenteeism of precursor social indications. The amount, rate of recurrence and extent of the aggressive act, are also out of quantity to the outward cause (Conor and Barkley, 2004).
The image illustrated indicates a great deal of aggression. In particular, the character in the image is said to display maladaptive aggression. This is for the reason that this form of aggression is not aimed or intended at safeguarding the character in question. The same case applies to overt aggression. As shown in the image, the character is proclaiming verbal threats and intimidations to the individual or object on his way in the traffic. It is not concealed or hidden as the character is blatantly perceived shouting and cursing, which is more open and apparent to everyone around him. This aggression can be perceived to emanate out of frustration in trying to get to a certain location fast and quickly.
