Human Trafficking

If I asked you what human trafficking, you would think of prostitution right? You're wrong. Commercial sex trafficking is only 38% of all trafficking. There are other Types of Human Trafficking such as ; Exploitation of Children, Servile Marriage, Non- Commercial sex trafficking, Forced Labor, ect. Do you ever wonder who made the shirt your wearing? No not the brand, the actual person who sewed your shirt and made it from scratch. Most likely someone from a poor community within a country. You pay $15 for your shirt but those men and women sewing your clothes only get about $4.70.

Cultural Mosaics

Cultural Mosaics

A cultural mosaic is the mix of ethnic groups, language & cultures that coexist together. For example, the United States. The United States consist of many many different types of people living here and we are exposed to it daily. Kids go into school and go to spanish class or german, french, ect. and think nothing of it but you are being exposed to language and culture. You open your cellphone and text someone from another country, you are now, again, being exposed to language, culture, and ethnic groups.

Social Groups

Mean Girls - Cliques

Social Groups. Are you a part of any? You probably are. As the video above shows, there are many different social groups. You make think that most of those are very stereo-typical but it's true. That's really how we all view each other. We all have our own interests, beliefs, wishes, morals, ect. We all gravitate towards the people we have the most in common with because we want the sense of security and belonging. You would hang out with people who like the same music or sports as you, not the opposite.
