Part 1 Section B-Question: Several of the reading have discussed how understanding of race shape the experiences ofindividuals and groups in major social institutions as well everyday life. Drawing upon readings andlecture material, comment on this observation.Answer:What is a social institution? A social institution is a collection of individuals banded together inpursuit of a common purpose. A social institution may be a school, church, town, community, etc. It isimportant to know that we live our lives through social institutions. It all begins with where we are born,how we were educated, where we work, who we worship (in a church or by spirituality), and eventuallyhow we die. For example, even if you were to take a break from social media, you would still be living inan institution because that is also part of your identity. The same could also be true for race, bothformally and informally and how its defined, theorized, and experienced in daily life.After figuring out what social institution(s) you belong to, it is important to also reflect onyourself as well. A scholar known as Lisa Lowe, encourages us to conduct a historical ontology (branch ofmetaphysics dealing with the nature of being) of ourselves. Asking yourself questions like: what is realand how do we know its real? Conducting a historical ontology further allows one to understand whothey are in relation to race or any other multiple identity. None of us has a singular identity, we actuallyhave different roles and different identities (student, son/daughter, and boyfriend/girlfriend). Youridentity however, is not fixed, it is fluid and always changing. Lisa Lowe is trying to get us to answer thequestion of, who are we really and how can we conduct historical investigating about who it is we thinkwe are. It is important to note that race is not real, but it is real in its consequences. Race has beenconstructed (socially and politically) and defined through a number of social institutions.The Thomas Theorem states that If men define situations as real, they are real in theirconsequences. This means that the interpretation of a situation causes the action as there are life anddeath consequences. For instance, there are consequences in terms of housing, like the people thatwere displaced in Chicago as discussed in the Fernandez book. If people were not being displaced andkicked out of their homes, then the rise of the Young Lords Organization would have never happened.There are also consequences for how Serena Easton is treated and how shifting from one neighborhoodto another allowed her to take on the role as a student, while making the transition into a differentsocial institution.
