Sociological imagination

            A concrete example of C Wright Mills sociological imagination is the underdevelopment of African American. When I say underdevelopment i mean whether it is poverty, unemployment, education, and began exploited. You go as far as back in the 1820 up 1940s were blacks were exploited in so many ways. They were slaves hanged killed and used for hard labor. For most slaves their lives consisted of work. Slaves began to work at a very young age and usually were separated from their parents most of them continued to work until their deaths. There were many jobs for a slave like working on the plantation fields. Most of the slaves worked as carpenters blacksmith or draftsman. Some of the women's spend their time in t he masters home working as maids and cooks. Blacks were kept uneducated they could not attend schools and learn freely, blacks were also unemployed and even if they had a job is was the one's that no one wants to do and it paid low wages. This exploitation continued for decades and decades. C. Wright Mills said "The Sociological imagination enables us to grasp history and biography"(the reading page 5 b). So looking at this definition of the sociological imagination does this mean that African Americans are doomed forever with began linked to their ancestor's for began slaves or began called sub humans staying with the black people. The black majority were those African Americans who had experienced and hated the whipping who labored the fields of the south's who hated the daily exploitation of their parents spouses and children began beat or killed or separated and who had the dreams of freedom. Those are the people of Africa. Even though all these bad things were happening to them they keep their African heritage their darker skin their uniquely rhyme and languages and their culture. Many great public issues faced African Americans in today's society now we can take this as an individual perspective or the sociological imagination.
