Question Description

Writing a Counterargument

The section on Nature of the Issue in the argumentative essay requires you to write a counterargument and rebuttal.In this exercise, you will develop a counterargument to your argument that the issue is associated with the -isms and the forms of oppression. You will also develop a rebuttal to this counterargument.The counterargument and the rebuttal should each be a paragraph in length and at least one peer-reviewed journal article should be used to support a claim.

Counterargument has two stages: you turn against your argument to challenge it and then you turn back to re-affirm it:

Sample thesis: Food deserts and food insecurity are associated with classism, marginalization, and cultural imperialism among people that are low-income. Advocacy efforts such as equipping farmers markets to accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits and citywide initiatives to attract grocery stores to communities with food deserts are necessary to improve the health of people that are low-income and living in communities with limited resources.

Sample Turn Against:

There are people who claim that people are obese because they are lazy and lack self-discipline (Puhl & Heuer, 2010). The claim that people who are obese are lazy and lack self-discipline is based on the narrative of personal responsibility.The narrative of personal responsibility refers to the perspective that people are personally responsible for their own actions and outcomes, both positive and negative. In this case, the narrative of personal responsibility blames people who are obese for their own personal failings such as their choice to eat unhealthy foods.

Sample Turn Back:

However, claims that people who are obese are lazy and lack self-discipline fail to take into account the effects that structural and institutional classism have on people’s health.While personal responsibility does play a role in people’s health, it plays a minor role, compared to the effects that structural and institutional classism have on people’s health.For instance, poverty, food deserts, and food insecurity associated with classism, increase people’s risk of obesity, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes (Seligman, Laraia, & Kushel, 2009).Stereotypes that people are obese solely because they are lazy and lack self-discipline perpetuate stigma and classism at the interpersonal level, and this can lead to discrimination based on weight, a form of cultural imperialism because people who are overweight or obese are perceived as “the other” .

Running head: EFFECTS OF POWERLESSNESS IN THE COMMUNITY Effects of powerlessness in the community Student Name Name of Institution Course 2 Question 1 Topic: Effects of powerlessness and exploitation in the community Brainstorm: The solution to exploitation and powerlessness can be obtained by imposing a law to protect the weak people in the society. There should be penalties for those people who fail to follow the outlined law. Additionally, the government should create a forum where each individual will express his thoughts on how to solve several problems in the society. Such problems include exploitation and powerlessness. The society should be educated on issues concerning their rights and how they should exercises these when protecting their properties. Question 2 Introduction to various forms of exploitation They are various forms of oppressing that most of the countries experience on a daily basis. These forms of oppression include: Violence: this is the act that entails physical pressure or strength of emotion that is aimed at imposing damage and cause death of someone. Powerlessness: this is lack of influence, ability or power to communicate about your grievances and needs in the society. Marginalization: this is an activity that involves pushing someone to the edge of a tribe that accorded as lesser important in the society or country. Cultural imperialism: this is where a country concentrates on a specific group of people and excluding others. The dominant group is referred to as the universal group which experience its cultural activities as the norms of the country. 3 Exploitation: this is the act of treating people or a group of people unfairly to benefit from their resources. Question 3 Powerlessness and exploitation Powerlessness and exploitation have commonly been interrelated in most of the experiences in the world. For example, in 1865 legal slavery was highly practiced in US. They were forcing individuals who had no power to defend their rights to work for the whites in their firms without payment. Additionally, any tribe which has no authority to assert their rights is mostly exploited in the country, and their resources are used to benefit the people in power like nation leaders. The two forms of oppression are the primary cause of poverty in these communities (Goldstein, 2013). 4 Reference Goldstein, D. M. (2013).
