Sociology Homework # 12
An individual is a separate being, a different identity and an unparalleled self of someone. The unparalleled perspective suggests that each being is different, and is unalike. The self is not different from the individual, rather it is his or her perspective about the individual being. The understandable difference between ‘Individual’ and ‘Self’ are their distinctive identities; the individual might be a body, whereas the self is not. Similarly, ‘Personality’ is the other’s perspective on any person. They all somehow, relate to each other. Finally, free will is the absence of necessities. It is the absence of boundaries and thought which originates from being free.
I had witnessed violent, aggressive and emotional behavior today. These social behaviors are taught to individuals through the society, by the way of socialized norms, which influence the upbringing of an individual. These social behaviors fall in the range of conformity. There could not be any potential harm or benefit, of these behaviors, to conformity or obedience.
‘Common sense’ is revealed as the most followed norms of our society. For example, people react when they see people fighting. In rare cases, common sense can limit our understanding of the world, since the communal norms are wide and majorly common, throughout the world.

My personality and my family is not much affected by the social stratification of our society since we had been so adaptive to the societal changes. Racism, I think, affects our social values. The disadvantages of racism vary a lot, since it has become a source to spread hate and violence.
I believe that racism is the only issue that creates differences among the people and creates causes for violence. It must be countered by all means, if the authorities consider it as a wide threat. It has affected the US norms, ranging from cuisine to politics. Racism exists since our society failed in curbing it, in the early stages.
Lastly, I acknowledge that my opinion has not changed at any time in my life since I had been witnessing events in the manner, from an early age.
