has happened here, but now it’s over, and all that remains is what’s left over from the story. Describe the

Social Construction of Racism and Poverty and how it can lead to Drugs/Alcohol abuse in Teenage Females Going through the stressors of life for any one individual can be confusing, along with an array of many more emotions. However, when faced with the social standards that are placed on young women to be a certain way, look a certain way, act a certain way and uphold a certain image, there are several possible negative outcomes that could possibly occur. A major negative result of these social constructs may be the misuse/abuse of drugs and/or alcohol during the teenage years. This stage in a young person’s life can be viewed as a major influential time, one of experimentation for them (Statistics Canada, 2016). However, there are reason more complex that experimentation that may lead a young person to feel the need to use drugs/alcohol. This paper will speak to the social construction of race as well as poverty/class and how these factors can influence the misuse of drugs/alcohol. According to Baines (2001) “Categories such as race, class, and gender are ongoing processes of domination and subordination that permeate our everyday lives in a myriad of ways.” It is no wonder that these factors in conjunction with the everyday microaggressions (Sue et al., 2009) that racialized, lower class girls face result in the abuse of negative substances. When discussing race/racism, it is reasonable to say that race is a socially constructed issue (Yee, 2004). Race categorizes individuals according to commonalities in ancestry and focuses on the physical characteristics these individuals have such as skin colour, hair texture and certain facial characteristics (Yee, 2004). The above given definition of race, however, does not fully cover the intricate and evolving meaning of race that has been negatively associated to ethno-racial minority communities (Yee, 2004). As we continue, the correlation between race and the use of harmful substances for young females will build on one another. When faced with the negative assumptions and biases that are born from the remarks of racism, young women can be made to feel inadequate. This >GET ANSWER
