Discussion Board: Chapter nineteen and twenty one
Personally, I was surprised that food deserts would happen in America. I think that it is because of the large difference between the rich and the poor in America. There is a huge gap between the wealthy and the ones going through poverty so there are extremes of both ends. I think structural-functionalism could be applied to understanding the food desert that is happening in America because I think that food deserts and hunger is the result of the failure of individuals in the society to contribute as a whole and work together to build a more cohesive community. Sociologists might understand food deserts so that the rich would be able to get more food, which could result in less food available for the poor. For now, the current social movement that promotes social change would be the gay rights movement, which promotes homosexual rights as well as gender equality. This challenged many cultures because of religious beliefs. The idea of homosexuality and gender equality might be a “hard to understand” concept for a certain religion. Another movement that promotes social change would be the feminism, where individuals in the society promote that female
should be able to enjoy similar rights as male does. However, this was also challenged by cultural belief of social roles as females were always viewed as an inferior as compared to males.
