This essay is based on the knowledge of how does the culture, historical and structural factors affect social programs and the social outcomes from the same. Social programs are always set for the public and that is why all the factors which are raised because of the public or for the public do affect the social programs and even their outcomes (Andrews, 2001). Hence, it is very important for person to look into the issue of sociological Management for pulling out the issues faced by the social programs.
For getting a clear view of what the effects are- we need to know the social imagination in the society and the culture of the same (Arvanitakis, 2016). As stated by a famous sociologist, dr. Mills, a person can only understand the social coordination and change if he is able to apply the sociological imagination on the situations. It is highly important for a person to understand the sociological imagination of the society to get an answer to the change and its effects.
This idea given by mill, involves a theory of making a familiar thing turn strange. This idea lets a person question the world with different point of view and basically involves a social aptitude to the question and not just focus on the personal viewpoint.
This statement can be detailed as- it is very important for a person, when understanding an issue with social and sociological point of view, to judge and look onto a point, not just personally but also measure allots outcomes socially (Andrews, 2001). Social outcomes can be only being noticed if one is aware of all the social alterations. There are many external influences and factors, like, social, cultural, political and structural which affect the outcomes of society on a daily basis.
The question does not count- “how a person feels about his looks” but, instead
It counts- “how the society feels about the person who is conscious about his looks”.
To know the effect of racism in a society, one can study the interaction of communities and individuals to know the influence which has been created due to racism (Arvanitakis, 2016). It has been studied by many sociologists and has been found that in the modern society, racism is based on the phenotype and does not lie in assumptions of supremacy based on biological factors (Pierce, 2013).
The changed way of looking into the social issues has increased the tendency to use cultural hierarchies for measuring instead of practices which just included minority groups. It has always affected the society in a larger view. We can see the social media changing their way of expressing and justifying racism.
The idea of whiteness and multiculturalism has influences the society and the outcomes in many ways. The factors like- showing of power over the minorities and race factor has been affected majorly due to this (Arvanitakis, 2016).
In sociology, inequality does not mean the difference in treatment but it observes a relationship between the privileged and the subordinate (Pierce, 2013). There have been many cultural and social factors which have stopped the poor countries from speaking up or even acknowledging their condition.
Discrimination is one of the main hands of inequality. Discrimination with one sector group can lead to suffering of overall country’s productivity. It can either be a tribe, minority or a small language group.
There has been a severe change faced by the whole world, which is being famous as anti- racism. The big past of racism and its present effects have gained a lot of people being noisy about fighting against it. An example is the “iwillridewithyou” movement which started due to the lint cafe incident (Pierce, 2013).
The above case concludes that it is not just sufficient to know the problem and its effects to draw a solution or an answer to it. But, it is very important to look onto the social image of the problem and how it is being measured and thought by the vast society. Without a realization in the society and the minds of people suffering, one can neither start a revolution alone nor make a clear understanding of sociological effects of the same.
Culture is not just a part of society but the truth is society belongs to the culture it adapts. A person can never just easily move away from the truth that society is headed by the external factors and culture plays a big role in this field. Any problem or any affair is widely affected by the societal, cultural and its political factors (Arvanitakis, 2016).
Development is only possible in a society when all the cultures, sects and groups, living in a society are rising together. Same way, a sociological outcome and effects can only be studied deeply and perfectly, if all the factors effecting the situation are dealt and studied properly.
