Racism is manifested through skin color in a world which is characterized by multiple races. Skin color has massive implications to human populations since it determines the social, economic, and cultural outcomes to the affected groups. In America, racism dates back to the colonial era, particularly through slave trade. The continuity of the vice is associated with the maintenance of the colonial status quo. Victims of racism are faced with inferiority feelings and other social injustices. Racism in society highlights the importance of close kinship ties, and the social setting whereby people compete for resources leading to the devaluation of others and social harm in order to benefit the group one identifies with. Racism is not only a biological basis and definition of skin color but also a social construct which brings about inequality among different races. Racism is, therefore, defined as a “pervasive form of tribalism” which is present in all human societies and it is prevalent globally. Given the common origins of all humanity, it is important to understand the biology behind skin color, ancestry, and social interactions of race in order to promote racial tolerance and equality in society. The paper focuses on exposing racism as a social vice, thereby presenting a reflection of its implications in society, as well as evaluating ways to eliminate the discrimination and bias associated to race and skin color.

Impressionism is a major art movement that dominated the late 19th century and early 20th century. It started with a group of Paris-based artists who banded together to organize independent exhibitions outside of government-approved “Salons.” They formed these centers to showcase their work directly to the public since the Salons criticized and rejected most of their products. Generally, impressionism depicted realistic scenes of modern life and also attempted to objectively and accurately emphasize the passage of time using light. The three impressionist paintings “The Artist’s Sister at a Window” by Berthe Morisot in 1869; “Little Girl in a Blue Armchair, 1878” by Mary Cassatt; and “Girl Braiding her Hair, 1876” by Pierre Auguste Renoir all portray everyday activities, the feministic and religious values of the painters, and have similar compositions, but they differ in color, lighting, model, pose, and dressing.

Active listening or aggressive listening has emerged as a critical skill in effective business communication as well as strategic leadership. Bernard Ferrari author of Power Listening: Mastering the Most Critical Business Skill of All, stipulates that active listening is the skill that demarcates great and mediocre managers (Ferrari 14).Contrary to prevalent belief, listening is an active endeavor that entails discipline, control, focus, and engagement (Ferrari 20). Active listening is the front end of any business decision and requires the listener to approach a conversation with a pre-established understanding of targeted goals. Moreover, Ferrari encourages the listener to steer and filter the conversation in a manner that accomplishes the preconceived purpose (20).

Active listening emerges as indispensable in sustaining creativity and strategic decision making in the course of business leadership. Continue reading “Active Listening Essay”
