in Self Help
THIS WEEK'S MESSAGE: The “isms” most common in American daily dialogue include sexism, racism, individualism and cynicism. However, there are over 200 different “isms.” Each term and its associated thoughts and actions represent a philosophical, political or moral doctrine or a belief system. In the United States today, our society’s philosophies, politics and belief systems vary in many ways and for many reasons. Some positions taken are viewed as essential to our country’s democracy. Most are honesty embraced by passionate believers. However, they all have at least one thing in common. They generally find a way to discriminate, in some form, against other Americans. Americans who, in spite of the realities, must also strive to live a full life. How have Americans historically succeeded and excelled against such odds?
Matthew C. Whitaker, Ph.D. is currently ASU Foundation Professor of History and the founding director of the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy.
