Despite the strong Chinese cultural traditions, the last century has seen a great deal of social change in China. Most recently, increased involvement in the global economic market has led to a high level of prosperity in China which is unfortunately not shared by all. Global influences have also led to the increased interest in science and technology; factors which have also affected social change and the cultural values of the population.

Comparison of Discrimination and Assimilation of African and Native Americans: Minority Groups, Cultural Changes, Colonization, Immigration, and Relations with the Dominant Group
[ send me this report ]
This is an 8 page paper discussing discrimination and assimilation of African and Native Americans. African Americans and Native Americans in the United States have experienced generations of discrimination and assimilation but from somewhat different perspectives. Native Americans were the most profoundly affected by colonization and were forced into minority group status and relocated by European whites who wanted the Native lands for their own needs similar to the minority group patterns in the theories of Robert Blauner. African Americans, on the other hand, have experienced two different forms of assimilation and discrimination in which those who were born here experienced legal segregation (until the 1960s Civil Rights Movements) in addition to discrimination and minority status based on “group inequity” in which the dominant group (white Anglo Europeans) believed African Americans to be inferior combined with “differential power” in which the dominant group was larger and had the resources to force the African Americans into minority status; ideas reflected in the theories of Donald L. Noel. African Americans are also comprised of immigrants who according to Blauner, made the decision to immigrate to the U.S. and therefore differ from those who were forced into minority status. Regardless of the origins of the Native Americans and African Americans, most sociologists agree that because they have been deemed “minority social races” they will continue to experience various forms of assimilation expectations and discrimination by the dominant group. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Comparison of the Family and Gender Structures in the Yanomamo, the Aztec and the Modern American Families
[ send me this report ]
This is a 5 page paper comparing the gender and family structures of the Yanomamo, the Aztecs and modern Americans. The Yanomamo of the Brazilian rainforest, the Aztecs of Mexico and modern Americans all have traditionally different gender and family structures and roles but all also experienced shifts within their structures to adapt to new situations encountered by new generations. The males within the Yanomamo are considered as the warriors but are heavily influenced by the women who demand protection from raiding tribes. The men within the tribes also continuously create stronger alliances with other powerful men in order to increase their status and their marriage options. The families of the Aztecs of Mexico lived jointly and joint households consisted of complex kinship ties in addition to the genders enjoying a parallel level of roles and respect. After the Spanish conquests however, the gender roles and family structures shifted toward a more male oriented society consistent with the expectations of the Spanish. Finally, the traditional nuclear families of American society have also shifted within the last generation. As the incidence of divorce increases and more women are working outside of the home, American families have experienced a shift to households which may have traditional nuclear structures but more than likely have environments in which parents are divorced, or cohabitating or are single parent based. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
