In summary, racial passing is a form of deception or fraud that allows an individual to assume particular characters or characteristics from which he or she would be forbidden by the current societal principles in the absence of his or her deceptive behavior. For example, in the United States, the typical racial passer has commonly been the ‘white black’: the person whose bodily appearance permits him or her to present themselves as “white” but whose “black” heredity makes him a black skinned in opinion of the prevailing racial rules. Additionally, racial passing was also widely practiced with the aim of achieving social and economic benefits which are typically more effortlessly accessible to a certain race. Racial passing is more likely in parts of Latin America than in the United States because in Latin America socio-economic rank normally relates with alleged whiteness, and native status and alleged African origin is normally related with impoverishment and lack of opportunities and societal rank.

For chapter 6 of the book, there is a general consensus that masculinity basically affirms the control and authority of the males in the society which is defined as machismo. Factually, the term affirms that the males will always be dominant over their women and always remain the head of the household. On the other hand, women are viewed as being obedient, stay home as wives, and attend to their kids from the book, this is refered to as marianismo used to define femininity. The two terms are rooted in the Spanish sociocultural settings of Latin America. However, this is not the same as in North America because in North America established policies and guidelines have time and again ensured that there is equality on both genders male and female. Typically, times have changed and women are now independent in different aspects of life.

What surprised me the most when I watched these kiddos talk was the fact that they were so comfortable with their lives and the level of acceptance of their conditions also surprised me. Their best friends were so comfortable and very knowledgeable about Down syndrome. The level of friendship and acceptance also surprised me as I watched these kiddos talk.

Have you ever met someone with Down syndrome? If so, what was it like? If not, what do you think it would be like?

After watching the video, I remembered when I was in high school, we had a colleague from our class called Collins. It was hard for Collins to utter words and it seemed as if he had something heavy in his mouth that deterred him from talking. At our level we had no knowledge of Down syndrome so a lot of students avoided talking or spending time with Collins while others tried to baby him. However, after watching the video I can now understand a lot of things, for instance, Collins was so good in football I now understand that this condition does not affect your abilities.
