1.1605 Skinhead Culture in Canada.
This paper examines two articles addressing the phenomenon of Canadian Skinhead culture with a view to causation. The authors' conclusions shed some light on the origins of racism among skinheads, linking racism to the factors that have generated it in other groups, namely in unemployment, a sense of injustice pertaining to the fortunes of whites as opposed to those of minorities, and most of all, in the pathology of abuse and negative experience that produces other kinds of abusive and violent personalities. 10 pgs. 12 f/c. 14b.

3.1622 Gender Division In Canada.
Contemporary feminists in Canada often point to systemic factors that allow gender division to continue in the Canadian labour market. It seems that women are compromised perhaps in their workplace performances by findings that suggest that they do continue to place greater weight on issues related to the family and their children. The culture of the workplace may have changed in women's favour, generally speaking, but their other roles do obstruct them from being as highly or as well represented in the labour force as they might be. This paper attempts to make the reader understand the causes for the gender division in the Canadian labour market. 4 pgs. 8 f/c. 8b.

5.1944 Summary and Critique.
This paper summarizes and critiques the article "Sexism, Racism and Canadian Nationalism." In this paper, Ng reviews analyses of the early formation of the Canadian State, and the ways race, gender and class were incorporated by elite classes and state-based institutions on the basis of perceived white superiority. Whiteness is, historically, a paternalistic relation of domination; thus, the State is constantly setting up structural forces (e.g., immigration policy) that constitute sites of struggle and conflict. It is here, in struggle and conflict, Ng argues, that the relations can be understood as historical processes of production and reproduction. 3 pgs. 0 f/c. 1b.

7.2057 Sociology: Issues in Canadian Ethnic Relations Relations of Exclusion in the "Everyday".
As a way to begin to understand how Canadian society is structured a racist/sexist patriarchy, it is crucial to find examples of these relations in the 'everyday' experiences of social life. This paper will argue that it is easier for the middle and upper classes to deny racism, because they may not be able to identify the way gender and ethnicity are woven through class dynamics. This paper will consider in more detail this notion of the "everyday" as a site for understanding the relations of racism, of sexism, and of class privilege in a Canadian context. This will raise the abstract idea of the "everyday" into concrete forms and particular relations that have a materialist base in society. This paper will also argue that class privilege covers much of the racist and sexist assumptions so that it is difficult for certain classes to identify the whiteness of domination as an economic structure, because they are so implicated in all that the class privilege provides. 7 pgs. 15 f/c. 5b.
