Using the whiteboards, make a list of all the factors you think make up a person’s ethnic identity

Ethnic minorities and racism
Ethnic Minorities and racism person’s identity

Do you think

there is

racism in modern

British society?

WHY?

LO: To understand the influence ethnicity has on a person’s identity


  • Ethnic minority groups in Britain are person’s identitylimited in shaping their self-identity because of the way they are seen and treated by powerful groups.

  • Racial prejudice and discrimination by the main white population may make it difficult for ethnic minorities to fully express their cultural identity.

    Do you agree with this?

LO: To understand the influence ethnicity has on a person’s identity


What is institutional racism
What is ‘Institutional Racism’ person’s identity

Inequality based on race within an organisation.

There has been evidence to show institutional racism in schools. It has been argued that white teachers cannot cope with the way Affrican-Caribbean boys express their identity at school and this is why they are the most likely to be excluded.

Police

  • Stephen Lawrence case showed institutional racism within the Met police.

  • ‘Stop and Search’ Black youth are stopped much more than any other ethnic group.

    Evidence has suggested this treatment has made black youth anti-authority and anti-police

Differences between ethnic groups
Differences between ethnic groups person’s identity

One ethnic group does not cater for the majority.

E.g. you cannot assume all Asians can fall under the ethnic minority label of Asians.

The Asian community is divided into Country, Regions and Religion (sub-cultures)

There can be hostility between members of the same ethnicity.

How might it affect your ability to express youself fully if there is hostilty from your own minority group as well as the White British Majority?


Read page 48 person’s identity

  • What differences did Modood find amongst members of the Asian community?

  • What did Ghumann (1999) find in his study to be the most influential factor in providing sub-cultural values to British Asian children?

  • Make a list of these key values. Are these norms the same across the majority of Asian cultures? What evidence is provided?


Social conformity in terms of obedience, loyalty and respect, particularly to elders and the community around them

Duty and obligation to the extended family community

Religious training is considered important because it reinforces respect for family

Ghumann

(1999)

Maintaining family honour

The choice of marriage partner should be left to the parents

Bi-lingualism – the mother tongue is seen as essential in maintaining links between the generations
