America is a big puzzle where all the states are connected and the pieces fit together perfectly forming one nation but internally stereotyping occurs and creates barriers amongst people of different race class and culture By defining an individual based on his or her race or ethnicity one is grouping them into different categories thereby stereotyping them Stereotyping creates these imaginary boundaries that separate the people of different cultures However race and ethnicity are not the only barriers that people create Economically speaking we have boundaries that divide our society into upper middle and lower classes There are different patches of area where only the upper class dwell likewise for the middle and lower classes Our population is stuck in the past because of stereotyping yet every generation loses a little chunk of their past and moves forward into the 21st century in America with little regards to their roots Lets look at the Native Americans for instance they used to hunt and thrive in the wilderness They relied on crops for survival and trade to make a living They were also a close community that did not care for material and money Once the Europeans took over their land they were forced to become agricultural workers The Indians tried to blend and live up to the expectations of the Americans and through that process they lost parts of their culture When the allotment program ended in 1934 John Collier devised a policy known as the Indian Reorganization Act Colliers idea was to allow Indians to remain Indians He believed that the allotment program was destroying the Indian traditions and their way of life By breaking the land into individual pieces and redistributing them out among the Indians it crumbled the roots of their culture Collier believed that the goal of the government should not be to immerse the Indians into the white community but to maintain the Indian culture by abolishing the allotment program
