He was trying to say that, in a typical romance, love can not be swayed by anything. People could argue against this by saying for example that Titania falls in love with a donkey! Or, Demetrius is only in love with Helena at end of play because of magic… but if Shakespeare believes in traditional love, maybe he thought that Demetrius would have fallen for Helena without magic over time, he just wanted Hermia for the wrong reasons: While Pyramus and Thisbe might be a cautionary tale, I will argue that it is also a lesson in the devotion of love.
Social workers in particular have to deal with some of the most oppressed and unfortunate parts of the population, parts that are often overlooked and denigrated by the media.
The social identities of various races are so fundamental to physical and internet publication that they are nearly overlooked unless the consumer looks for them specifically.
In this case, it becomes obvious that systemic racism is still common in America and affects the identity of those who have power and those who do not. It is the identities reinforced by these images that social workers must contend with on a daily basis and hope to one day overcome.
The artifacts for discussion are three collections of images that might be a common sight for an average American.
The first, a magazine rack at a university bookstore Figure 1, Appendixis a seemingly eclectic display of magazines from many areas of interest. Science, music, food, family, film, and fashion are only some of the genres represented.
Looking at the image with an eye for racial implications, however, reveals a trend of white dominance. Only two magazines feature images of non-white people. One is President Obama on the cover of Newsweek and the other is Oprah on the cover of her own magazine.
While these are strong images of powerful and successful black people, the majority of people represented on the rack are white, suggesting that the majority of attractive, interesting, and important people are white. The Internet Perpetuates Race Issues This theme of white dominance in seemingly innocuous compilations of media can be seen on the internet as well.
Some are young and attractive, some are overweight, some are older, and some picture include no people at all, but the common factor in the people that are represented is affluence and their white ethnicity.
This collection of images focuses exclusively on non-white ethnicities. Though many are children, there are people of all ages and apparently a variety of races, just none of them white.
To fully understand the impact of the racial discourse in these images, the discussion must turn to the Cycle of Socialization that explains how social identities are formed and what their impact is.
There is a great deal of academic discussion and analysis regarding racial discourse and one of the fundamental authorities on this subject is B. His commentary on the Cycles of Socialization and Liberation provide a solid basis from which to analyze images of racial discourse and their impact on the population.
By identifying with a certain social group, a person is going to drift toward the stereotypes portrayed for that social group. These images are exactly the kinds of systemic media that project a social identity onto a person, of any race, but negatively so in the case of people who are not white.
The impact that these influences have on the people they apply to is profound. These ideologies both explain and perpetuate the status quo, which many people would consider to be prejudiced and oppressive.
The problem is that it is communicated so fundamentally that it is difficult to correct. In the case of these images, the discourse is subtle and passive, but unmistakable.
Socioeconomic Class and Racism A major cause of biased racial discourse is that it has been the way it is for so long. It does not matter how many people challenge the status quo or, in the case of social workers, how many individuals are helped back onto their feet after succumbing to the oppression of their social identity.
So the role of social workers must extend both to those they serve and to the system that they represent; and in turn, that system must respect and listen to those social workers who have firsthand knowledge of what the practical effects of contemporary racial discourse are. It is difficult to affect change in a system that is so contented with itself and so skilled at covering up its prejudices.
As has been suggested, images like these, both in bookstores and on the internet, do not overtly attack or esteem any particular race, but they indirectly indicate clear divisions of image. This kind of social arrangement creates still more difficulties for social workers because it clearly aligns them against the people they are trying to help.The Cycle of Socialization.
