First of all, his argument assumes that having a society that is not concerned with class is a problem. I think that the lack of preoccupation with what class people are in in America only promotes the American creed and is what unites this country.
Friday, February 10, "Class in America" - Gregory Mantsios Researching has always been difficult and frustrating.
It was hard to receive a result that talked about exactly what I was looking for. Many of the results were a bit off topic and did not deal with American problems. They were about novels or about other countries. However I did manage to find two sources that mostly present my theme. My first source talks about the meaning of "patience" between different classes and differences of social class.
It talks about how each class is treating differently and how each has its own customs.
The other article shows the history and workings of the working class. Americans "refer to their race, ethnic group, or geographic location. Mantsios describes 4 myths about class in America.
In reality, however, we realize that these are ALL myths or lies. America does struggle with its social class system and the gap between rich and poor is growing everyday. Mantsios shows the wide range of class in America.
The rich only make about one percent but make a third of the money gross. There are extreme differences in the lifestyles if each class.
Lastly, not everyone is able to succeed with JUST hard work. Not all Americans have the same opportunists if they are born in different classes. It is very hard to get out of a lower class. Being in a lower class present many more challenges than someone who started off in a higher class level.
There are even more negative effects of the social classes. Many times people are discriminated because of their race or gender. Statistically certain races are more likely to succeed in finding a job and what not. This creates unfair advantages and discourages the minorities to get out of the lower class.
I do believe that there is injustice withing the social class structure in America. Being a minority I can see the challenges that one would have to go through in order to prevail and up their status. America likes to think it is the land of the equal but until it can prove that it is just a lie.
The rich often get richer and the poor get poorer.
In America, it seems everyday they make it harder and harder for the poor to overcome their class standards and become better.Class in America ~ Gregory Mantsios. Class in America ~ Gregory Mantsios.
