Is race black or white? We all come from different ethnic background and hence are naturally predisposed to showcase different socio-cultural traits. Does the race theory explicitly explain the genesis of the race differences and the consequences of the same? The supremacy squabbles between the black and white races in the United States is indeed an undermining factor to the American dream. What ways can this challenge be handled as per the racial theory?
The racial theory explores the source of indifference between ethnic groups with an objective of creating an equilibrium point in which these ethnic societies can symbiotically coexist. The present priority of the racial theory is to offer enough support to the unending connotation and shifting meaning of race. Race has been explored in to the deeper quotas of ethnicity, social class and nationality in the contemporary world. Race has been explored in to the deeper quotas of ethnicity, social class and nationality in the contemporary world. The shift from the mere racial ideology of a black or white race is hence an important shift from the narrow theoretical approach of the racial theory to the bigger picture (Omi & Winant, 53). The United States has been the highly developed economy across the globe and has hence created healthy environment from social and racial justice system.
The ideology of race has nonetheless attracted two major critics. The failure of the ideology to identify the salience that a collective paradigm can grow in over 500,000 years and the failure to acknowledge at the level of experience of the daily life, race is a relatively impermeable part of humanity (Omi & Winant, 54). As a matter of fact living in the United Sates can never be possible up until someone belongs to certain race.
