Introduction:
United States of America is a country in North America, a federal republic of 50
states. Besides the 48 conterminous states that occupy the middle latitudes of the
continent, the United States includes the state of Alaska, at the northwestern
extreme of North America, and the island state of Hawaii, in the mid-Pacific
Ocean. The United States is the fourth largest country in the world in area (after
Russia, Canada, and China). The national capital is Washington, which is
coextensive with the District of Columbia, the federal capital region created in
1790.The United States contains a highly diverse population. Probably no other
country has a wider range of racial, ethnic, and cultural types than does the United
States. In addition to the presence of surviving Native Americans (including
American Indians, Aleuts, and Eskimos) and the descendants of Africans taken as
enslaved persons to the New World, the national character has been enriched,
tested, and constantly redefined by the tens of millions of immigrants who by and
large have come to America hoping for greater social, political, and economic
opportunities than they had in the places they left. This is a society of high
technology and extremely intensive energy use. It is also a country that has
developed a tightly organized and elaborately interdependent economy and social
system, accompanied by vast increases in total economic productivity.
Social structure of this society:
Introduction on two social phenomenon in this society:
1.Racism:
Racism began in North America in 1619, when white European settlers
turned in the early 17th century from indentured servants (mostly poorer
Europeans) to a cheaper, more plentiful labor source: enslaved Africans.
Some historians have estimated that 6 to 7 million enslaved people were
imported to the New World during the 18th century alone, depriving the
African continent of its most valuable resource its healthiest and ablest men
and women. People of color have been fighting racism since then till
nowadays. The latest racism incident was on May 25, when Minneapolis
police officers arrested George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, after a
convenience store employee called 911 and told the police that Mr. Floyd
had bought cigarettes with a counterfeit $20 bill. Seventeen minutes after the
first squad car arrived at the scene, Mr. Floyd was unconscious and pinned
beneath three police officers, showing no signs of life.
2.Domestic violence:
Family and domestic violence are abusive behaviors in which one individual
gains power over another individual. Examples: Intimate partner violence
typically includes sexual or physical violence, psychological aggression, and
stalking. Child abuse involves the emotional, sexual, physical, or neglect of
a child under 18 by a parent, custodian, or caregiver that results in potential
harm, harm, or a threat of harm. Elder abuse is a failure to act or an
intentional act by a caregiver that causes or creates a risk of harm to an
elder.
Family and domestic violence is a common problem in the United States,
affecting an estimated 10 million people every year; as many as one in four
women and one in nine men are victims of domestic violence. (Martin R.
Huecker; Kevin C. King; Gary A. Jordan; William Smock. (2021). Domestic
Violence. StatPearls [Internet].
Impact of social phenomenon on society:
1.Racism: Racism has been linked to higher levels of death in black men from
suicide, disease and homicide. On average, black youth face one major
discriminatory experience each year. As a result of racism, and associated
poverty and injustice, life expectancy at birth for black men is far below
white women, black women and white men.(S.A. (in press). This is the toll
that everyday racism takes on black men in America. World Economic
Forum.)
Throughout the 20th century, federal housing policy and practices excluded
Black families from opportunities to build home equity and accumulate
wealth, creating generational repercussions. In contrast, federal intervention
and investment has helped expand homeownership and affordable housing
for countless White families. (Amelia Costigan, Keshia Garnett, Emily
Troiano, The Impact of Structural Racism on Black Americans (Catalyst,
September 30, 2020).
2.Domestic violence:Children witnessing violence committed against their
parent can find it difficult to trust adults in the future. It compromises their
