Question:

What role has the obsession for Eurocentric features, specifically in high fashion women's magazines, played?

Inactive
Panhia Y.
Answer:

Eurocentric features are most notably defined as features exclusive to those of European descent such as blue eyes and blonde hair. Features such as thinness, high nose bridges, and big eyes, in contrast, are actually inclusive features to individuals from a multitude of various races and therefore not accurately compartmentalized as 'Eurocentric.' The widespread visual perpetuation of Caucasian models and historic exclusion of non-Caucasian models in high fashion magazines and runways have pushed the narrative that being White means being beautiful, and therefore superior to non-European features. The singular narrative plants implicit and unconscious biases in minds, enabling members of society to become enforcers of Eurocentric beauty standards.

Answer:

Evidence-based programs are defined by thoroughly researched interventions and services that have been proven to be effective and well implemented. They guide the interventions used with clients to yield researched and desired outcomes. Some strengths include concrete evidence for funding purposes and guaranteed outcomes when implementing well-researched services. Some weaknesses include costs of the evidence-based program, staffing needs, the lack thereof, and organizational readiness and related barriers.

Question:

Kalief Browder's death created national awareness of how multiple systematic institutions fail and imprison young African American males. As social workers, what approach would you take to help this situation?

Answer:

As many institutions failed the Browder on not just the policy but also the interpersonal level, many reforms are needed across systems. From a systems lens, prison reform is a pressing need. Removing implicit bias from prison staff, security, police, judges, lawyers, civilians, etc. would lead to a decrease in the representation of people of color, people living in poverty, and people from neighborhoods considered “at-risk” in the social justice system as a whole. On a more direct level as child welfare workers, overall justice for foster care children and a conscious effort in working to remove the reputations and stigmas associated with being in foster care and how that contributes to long term life outcomes for these youth and adolescents. Removing that label from Kalief and externalizing him as an individual from the system would allow workers to create more of a sense of empathy and validation for those having experiences of injustice like Kalief. Beyond that, consistent interpersonal work with individuals who do have these experiences and recognition of the lasting impacts associated with wrongful arrest, conviction, and incarceration and all of the peripheral life domains that are affected as a result.
