Walk in someone else′s shoes


WALKK A MILE IN SOMEONE ELSE′S SHOE – ″Walk a Mile in Someone Else’s Shoe″ by watching and listening to four slideshows. Listen to the four slideshows. Each slide show is about two minutes long. Take these examples found in these short videos and apply Jones (2002) three level framework to explain racism on three levels: institutional racism (access to power: housing, employment, medical facilities, clean environment), personally mediated racism (prejudice and discrimination: assumptions about the person′s ability, intentions, motives), and internalized racism (negative messages about stigmatized person′s worth).

You may use your own examples without viewing the video. B) Explain how racism affects health outcomes negatively using this framework? C) Explain the role of the health educators in the gardener′s tale? In other words, how does the gardener′s tale guide our thinking about how to intervene on the three levels?

The level of discrimination is determined by the ability of a person to choose what they like to do in particular situations when they find an injustice that is meted to other people because of their skin color. When children are born the level of care that is given to them determines how they will turn out in the future. They may have equal potential, but once they are denied equal opportunities, then they lose the ability to compete equally in the world. Therefore to determine if discrimination and racism affect the outcome of the children from the time they are born to when they are grown-ups the only reference that a person needs is to look at their skin color and the opportunities that are presented to them (Ma’at, et al, 2001).
