Describe and summarize the book, much as a book review in the Sunday New York Times tries to tell readers — most of whom have not read the book and probably never will — what a given book is all about. What are the major themes and conclusions of the book? Where is the author coming from? The second part of your paper (and please make it clear where you are starting Part II) should describe your critical reactions to the book. Here each student has a lot of flexibility, but examples of questions the student might discuss include: What did the author get right (if anything), and what did he/she get wrong (if anything)? Did the book remind you of any events in your own life or of other issues that we discussed in class? What do you feel were the most thought-provoking points in the book?
le due to the difference between races. “…the 1% are profiting off ongoing racial economic inequality.” Going back to the roots of this racial inequality go back to when blacks were forced into slavery. This issue is still present and African American’s are still seen as less than Caucasians and there are many articles and evidence to prove this. Racial discrimination is present, and it has not disappeared in the United States as many would like to believe. The injustice and inequality effect many across the US and the world and not just within income but across all aspects of their life. In the US today, education is the main contributor to the income inequality. A majority of African Americans are at a disadvantage not only because of their income but they can’t afford college due to their income. Tuition, as well as getting loans for college are difficult which affects the potential income one makes. The difference between income based on graduating high school and college is huge. The impact of slavery on current income disparities is associated with a higher degree of income inequality. Today, former slave counties are more unequal and have a higher poverty rate and higher racial inequality. Inequality still stems from the past. US slavery exerts a lingering effect on racial income disparities. “After the Civil War, a new kind of capitalism arose, in the United States and elsewhere. Yet that new capitalism characterized first and foremost by states with unprecedented, bureaucratic, infrastructural, and military capacities, and by wage labor—” Not only are there injustices between African Americans and Caucasians in income but there is discrimination between applying for college, residential segregation, rent prices and health inequality. “African Americans are disproportionately treated at health care facilities with the fewest technological resources, the most poorly trained professionals, and least experienced clinicians serve predominately black patient populations.” These injustices have been around too long and we need to be better as a country to better understand the discrimination and income inequality happening in our country today. As a country we can come together and fight this inequality by proposing a wealth tax for the one percent wealthiest as well as educating and addressing the country on the racial wealth divide.>GET ANSWER
