|Title:||The Social Status of Blacks in Toronto|
|Authors:||Austin, William Bobby|
|Abstract:||<p>The emphasis of this study concerns the overall status of the Black community in Toronto. The study will treat the Blacks in Toronto with respect to their interaction with the larger Canadian society. By understanding the processes of interaction and the way these occur in Canadian society, one may be able to critically evaluate policies toward the Blacks. The intent is to analyze the social processes that take place and present them as an attempt to understanding race relations in Canada.</p> <p>The guiding perspective underlying this study is the social nature of an ethnic group in a multi-racial society, asserting that their destiny in this multi-racial society is likely to be no more, but also no less, than an informal status as a self-respecting ethnic community, voluntarily held together by sentiment rather than law. This study will focus on how well a specific ethnic group is moving toward this kind of goal, and what problems they are encountering as a result.</p> <p>There has been very little information in the past concerning the Black population in Canada. This study should give both general information and insight into the group, as well as providing some specific sociological assumptions concerning the question of integration and segregation of groups in multi-racial societies.</p>|
