What's wrong with St. Joseph? by Mind Map: What's wrong with St. Joseph?

1. Diversity and Divide

1.1. Study 3. In this study people vote in a poll to determine for different genders, races, and ages if life has improved or has gotten worse. The divide of ideologies in St. Joseph makes it more difficult to cooperate in other areas. http://www.people-press.org/2016/08/18/3-views-of-the-country-and-feelings-about-growing-diversity/

1.2. Database Study 3: This study shows that racial discrimination in the criminal justice system can make some judges disparities in their ruling and sentencing of punishments. This is important to St. Joseph because it shows that our diverse city could potentially be skewed in our justice system to sentence harsher punishments to our ethnic minorities which causes families to be broken and a lack of opportunity to our ethnically diverse citizens. http://web.b.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail/detail?vid=31&sid=f952b726-c6ee-4f66-a2a2-da01b3624d8f%40sessionmgr101&hid=102&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#AN=115460009&db=afh

1.3. Database Study 2:  This study shows that racial discrimination in the workplace leads to health risk behaviors in those being discriminated against, such as use of tobacco, alcohol use and other harmful drug use. This is important to St. Joseph because it shows that racial discrimination in our workplaces not only affects monetary divide, but can cause serious health complications to our ethnic minorities trying to make ends meet. http://web.b.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail/detail?vid=29&sid=f952b726-c6ee-4f66-a2a2-da01b3624d8f%40sessionmgr101&hid=102&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#AN=99918615&db=afh

1.4. Database Study 1: In this study, we see that racial discrimination of ethnic minorities can lead to many mental health problems. This is important to St. Joseph because we have a racially diverse city, and many of it’s inhabitants suffer detrimental mental illnesses because of discrimination against them. http://web.b.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail/detail?vid=24&sid=f952b726-c6ee-4f66-a2a2-da01b3624d8f%40sessionmgr101&hid=102&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#AN=116097670&db=afh

1.5. Study 2: There is a large divide in how black and white people are treated in courts, by police, in the workplace, and in public in general throughout America, and it is only reasonable that this is also the case in St. Joseph, creating a divide. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/06/27/key-takeaways-race-and-inequality/

1.6. Study 1: The facts and statistics show in this article that some of the issues of gender diversity and minority are still apparent in the workplace today. St. Joseph is 88% white, so minority issues in the workplace could potentially be a issue. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2013/07/18/5-facts-about-ethnic-and-gender-diversity-in-u-s-newsrooms/

2. Child Care Issues

2.1. Study 3: Child care and education: quality, availability, and parental involvement       - http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2015/12/17/4-child-care-and-education-quality-availability-and-parental-involvement/

2.2. Database Study 2: Low income requires latino families to purchase unhealthy foods resulting in childhood obesity. With the high latino population in St. Joseph, this is a pretty unnerving issue. http://web.b.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail/detail?vid=16&sid=f952b726-c6ee-4f66-a2a2-da01b3624d8f%40sessionmgr101&hid=102&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#AN=115836465&db=afh

2.3. Database Study 1: Low income families who have to work 2 jobs per household tend to spend more on child care than anyone else. This means that the low income families of St. Joseph, the children who need their parents presence and support the most, go on living without it. http://web.b.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail/detail?vid=5&sid=f952b726-c6ee-4f66-a2a2-da01b3624d8f%40sessionmgr101&hid=102&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#AN=113199691&db=afh

2.4. Database Study 3: This study shows that girls and boys tend to suffer less sexual and physical abuse in homes and by their peers across Japan and across the globe, but are far less likely to report it. This tells us that roughly 50% of our city’s infant females and 45% of infant males will be abused? http://web.b.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail/detail?vid=18&sid=f952b726-c6ee-4f66-a2a2-da01b3624d8f%40sessionmgr101&hid=102&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#AN=115373104&db=afh

2.5. Study 2: Hispanic children and poverty Many hispanic children live in poverty all across the nation, and especially in areas with large latino populations. St. Joseph, having such a high population of Hispanic families, suffers from this same problem and could potentially be affecting hispanic children in many other areas of life due to this statistic. http://www.pewhispanic.org/2011/09/28/ii-poverty-patterns-among-hispanic-children/

2.6. Study 1: Religious Exemptions on Child Abuse laws Prosecution on the grounds of child abuse are not valid in the state of Missouri when the abuse is on the grounds based on religious views. This may be why so many cases of child abuse go unprosecuted in the city of St. Joseph. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/08/12/most-states-allow-religious-exemptions-from-child-abuse-and-neglect-laws/

3. Urban Rot

3.1. Study 1. Differences on racial issues have caused a divide, and therefore the lack of cohesion leads to decay, or urban rot. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2013/08/28/the-black-white-and-urban-rural-divides-in-perceptions-of-racial-fairness/

3.2. Database Study 1: The decay of Detroit in this article is a good example of urban decay and rot, an easy comparison for some of St. Joseph’s economic issues. It shows examples of how urban rot is a process, and that it can easily compound into more issues. Overcoming these issues, however, isn’t nearly as easy or simple. http://web.b.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail/detail?vid=4&sid=70b11895-6d0b-4c13-857e-96f7b33484da%40sessionmgr1&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#AN=101058415&db=tfh

3.3. Database Study 3: This article shows that the modern life in urban areas, cities, and busy environments actually increase the amount of stress that a person has. It also states that city life can also progress the state of Psychosis. The impending stress of lacking economy in St. Joseph could easily cause stress for residents here. http://web.b.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail/detail?vid=6&sid=70b11895-6d0b-4c13-857e-96f7b33484da%40sessionmgr1&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#AN=82563291&db=afh

3.4. Database Study 2: This article also uses Detroit as an example, but this time as an example for what could occur to the rest of the United States. The world urban society and economy would soon follow suite. The articles says that our government's’ response is indicative of what will truly happen. The lack of, or older and less intuitive laws of St. Joseph hinder the town's ability to grow. http://web.b.ebscohost.com/ehost/detail/detail?vid=5&sid=70b11895-6d0b-4c13-857e-96f7b33484da%40sessionmgr1&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#AN=98989238&db=afh

3.5. Study 3. A lack of confidence and motivation can hurt the economy and urban society more than any other impending factor. People won’t invest if they don’t think they’ll win. When people are less motivated to buy goods and services in general they stop, therefore hurting business, then the workforce. Economic downturn is at that point is quite widespread. http://www.people-press.org/2016/08/18/3-views-of-the-country-and-feelings-about-growing-diversity/

3.6. Study 2. A continuation on the racial issues above, the decay is somewhat a result of divide and in this case a racial group feels they have the worst of the economy. http://www.pewhispanic.org/2012/01/26/hispanics-say-they-have-the-worst-of-a-bad-economy/
