Leonard Peltier Case - 1,589 words
One of the modern Native Americans' most prominent leaders, Leonard Peltier, was arrested in the summer of 1975 and eventually sentenced to two life terms for a crime many believe he did not commit. The conviction and imprisonment of Leonard Peltier is an injustice. His prosecution by the United States government represents yet another attempt to snuff out American Indian culture and leaders. The outspokenness of Peltier and other AIM members may be the only reason why Leonard Peltier has sat in prison for the last 24 years. Leonard Peltier is a Native American of mixed blood, being approximately 75 percent Sioux blood. His early life could be there story of almost any Native American growin ...

Biracial Children - 1,027 words
In the US there are 1.1 million plus interracial marriages. Along with these marriages come millions of biracial children. Not everyone believes having biracial children is a good idea. Some believe these parents are committing a grave offense against their children, and thus they are unintentionally hurting their own children (Washington 278). This a problem which many people are concerned about, teachers and social workers especially. They are scared biracial children will not get the extra time and energy they need to live as a normal child. Adults are needed to help the children understand why they are different and how to deal with it. Biracial children must learn to cope with the probl ...

How Can Domestic Violence Be Explained - 1,360 words
Domestic violence against women is a serious and widespread problem that is just not confined to the UK as Heise et al (1994) indicates that between 20 to 50 per cent of women in most countries experience spousal abuse at least once in their lives. During 1995 almost one third of 4,967 women murdered in the United States were killed by their boyfriend or husbands. Nor does domestic violence stop at mere physical abuse, but can include sexual, verbal, spiritual, emotional or longer lasting psychological abuse that can cause a broad range of health problems including full mental breakdowns. A study by Stark and Flitcroft (1991) suggests that domestic violence may be the single most important c ...

How Can Domestic Violence Be Explained - 1,330 words
... milies who are prone to domestic violence, it cannot be possible to rely solely on stresses as an explanation of abuse. Most social-economic/socio-demographically stressed men do not abuse their partners. Another explanation of domestic violence that has been much researched and documented is that of learned behaviour which is sometimes known as the cycle of violence. These well-documented studies show that domestic violence may occur when a child has been exposed to, witnessed or experienced domestic violence in their family origin. One such study carried out by Strauss et al (1979) found that there was a clear trend for violence in childhood to produce violence in adult life; Violence ...

Booker T - 1,771 words
Booker T. Washington, an educator and the most prominent black leader of his day, grew up as a slave in Franklin County, Virginia. He was born to a white slave-holding father and a slave mother. He became the most prominent black leader of the late 19th and early 20th century, who counseled them to focus on modest economic goals and to accept temporary social discrimination.

Juvenile Delinquents - 802 words
On March 7, 2000, Californians voted in favor of Proposition 21 - The Juvenile Justice Initiative. . The number of crimes committed by juveniles has risen dramatically, and it will continue to rise unless some action is taken. Thus, juvenile offenders should be punished more severely to deter other teenagers from committing crimes and for the safety of all citizens. I am in favor of the requirement that juvenile offenders, age 14 or older, be tried as adults for serious crimes, such as murder or violent sex offenses. Juveniles that commit these serious offenses should be tried and sentenced as an adult, rather than just being given a slap on the wrist. Having more severe punishments for juve ...

Welfare - 1,670 words
Welfare has been a social issue since 1936, which was when Welfare was introduced to the United States. Welfare soon expanded through out the 1960s and 70s. Welfare does not only exist in the United Sates, it also exists in many other nations as well. Our welfare program may not even be as good as other nations. The reason for this is the United States practices individualistic capitalism which is where the government emphasizes the importance of an individual rather than a group or community. While other countries such as Germany are known to have a communitarian capitalism. Germany is known to have a very good welfare system due to this. This is necessarily not a bad thing, because the ave ...

There Are Many Facets To Social Work - 1,009 words
There are many facets to Social Work and many different angles a person can look at what drives the need. In this essay I will critically examine three approaches to social work. These three include the Structural Perspective, the First Nations perspective and the Feminist Perspective. To start off, looking at social work from a Structural Prospective is helping a worker to see from a wide scope lens. In Karen's story on the tape An Interview with four social workers, we see a boy helped more by broadening the scope and looking at the invisible walls surrounding him. By identifying these invisible walls we see more of a different perspective and helps us deal with the problem in a different ...

Some include good child care so parents can work at a good job, decent places to live and treated with respect. At the same time the ...
