Contemporary probem: healthcare in US & why we citizens follow it
Hi, my name is Ashley. Thank you for your help!!
I am in college level Anthropology. Throughout the semester we have talked about cultures. We have learned that people stick to what they know and what they are taught, their a?cultural norms.a? For example: Muslims; Muslim women are dominated by men and must always have their skin covered with long veils. Why do these women abide by such rules? Why donat these women stick up for themselves? Because that is the culture in which they were raised, that is what they were taught and that is what they know, so they simply follow and abide.
Here is my essay prompt:
Write a final paper that brings your knowledge of cultures and how they operate to bear on a contemporary problem of your choice.
Describe explicitly the cultures that bear on this issue and make an argument to show how we cannot act independently of cultures or show how we do.
THINK BIG, when you think of implications. On a narrow level, you will have learned something important about cultures and their differences. On a broader level, you will have learned something about the nature of cultures and the relationship between cultures and the choices we make (appropriate for your Discussion). On a still broader level, you may learn something about the nature of people, of what it means to be a human being (appropriate for your Conclusions).
Pay Attention to These Critical Paper Components
INRO: start with: a?This paper a¦.a? [fill in the blank with a simple statement of the what you intend in the paper.
THEN: explain why the issue or issues or questions are important enough to spend time on. Explain what we (think we) know and what we need to find out next. Think of this section as a readeras road map to your report.
SUMMARIZE your findings and conclusions in 1-2 sentences.]
Body of Paper: write your paper.
Discussion [Analyze implications of these contrasts for national policy bearing on the U.S.
Conclusions [Conclude by summarizing your findings and say something about their implications for your life and material welfare.]
I thought healthcare (Obama care) was a decent contemporary problem in the United States.

I started off like this so far:
An Analytical paper on the study of Anthropology
Throughout this class, we were asked to write different assignments on the components of a college classroom environment, interactions with our family, norms at our place of employment, honor cultures and a few others, so that we can better understand the rules and cultural norms in our society. I now see how all our assignments are connected and can be integrated to share one common theme which is to accept other humans as equal in spite any difference. In August 1963, at the Washington monument, located in our nations capital, Dr. Martin Luther King gave one of the most important speeches in American and human history. In his speech, Dr. King urged America to provide freedom and liberty to all people no matter what their race, gender or religion. In it, he said:
I say to you today, my friends, though, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American Dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”
In addition to being beautifully crafted, the speech also contained a profound meaning that is still applicable in our culture and society today. Martin Luther King believed that the pc trinity (Gender, Class, and Race) was not a valid reason for society to discriminate against others. Instead everyone should be regarded as equal members of society. At the time of this speech, this concept was seen as very radical because African Americans were being subjected to hatred, racism and severe cruelties. Nonetheless, 50 years later, society has changed and made immense progress in treating individuals equally despite their differences.
This is exactly the same thing that we experience with our families or friends. We must treat each other as equals and respect each other at all times. We should not discriminate against other people because they may be different. Differences can come in the way of gender, religion, race, ethnicity, economic class, traditions, etc.
And I wanted to now start talking about healthcare and maybe how it should be equal to everyone.
