The Nature of Human Beings the Concept of Community


The same complaint can be seen everywhere. In the modern era of information and technology, the late author James Chapin noted a remarkable similarity between the different places and the inhabitants and in this context, he said: every place becomes more like itself. In the earlier days, people used to consider those places suitable for living which includes lots of factories or other means of earnings, while now the same people look for places to reside which consists of people belonging to their culture. The author finds that general people love segmenting themselves. According to him, the people are, finding places where we are comfortable and where we feel we can flourish. In this context, the contrasting nature of the United States has been put under limelight which often exhibits distinction between the institutions and blocks but as a whole, they introduce themselves as a diverse nation. Mr Brook states that diversity is often understood as racial unity. Many social reformers tried to incorporate this idea in their approaches towards a society without racial discrimination and it proved to be successful in the initial years. However, the census data of 2000 reveals that racially integrated neighbourhoods were found to rise during the 90s but due to some unknown reason, the African families who were staying earlier with their American neighbours were found to shift in the black neighbourhood regions. The author has cited many such instances throughout this writing. In the concluding paragraphs Brooks state that it is the nature of human beings to stay close to those who are somehow similar to them. From this mentality, the concept of community arises.
