ited, but those who are paid less than what is necessary for even the survival are super-exploited. Super-exploitation is synonymous to racism which requires ideological justification. In other words, it means if you are going to colonize a group, you have to come up with reasoning. The ideology of racism is, in fact based on that reasoning (Rosenthal, 2007). This concept of race was developed centuries back but the word racism did not catch fire until the 20th century. Racism was developed to promote and justify enslavement, annihilation, and colonial conquest and it is still the base of the system of modern capitalism.
The war in Afghanistan and Iraq reflects the fatal racist core of the modern capitalist system. The ruling class used the 9/11 attacks as a smokescreen to carry out imperialist oil wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The global war on terror is just a fancy name given to the super exploitation of these nations. The wars as they have been portrayed are not waged to spread democracy in the Middle East or fight against terrorism. The deserts of Iraq holds as much as 783 billion barrels of oil and any nation seeking to dominate the world would go after it (Behan, 2007).

The opposing view, however, focuses on the notion that America was formed by a group of ‘immigrants’ and that immigration is the very foundation of what constitutes being an American. For those who adhere to the notion that immigration is the center of our society, the question then comes, when did it change?
America began its quest for religious tolerance when immigrants from Europe and other countries began to flock to the country after World War I. In this predominantly Protestant country, people who did not belong to the same faith suddenly flooded the communities and left Americans afraid and unable to deal with the sudden surge of varying religions.
This particular theory can also be related with various ways through which people in a society share common ideas and opinions (Budrys 1-70). The aspects of functionalist theory can be noticed in Chapter 1 of the book titled ‘Dishonoring the Dead’. This chapter the author Jonathan Kozol largely focuses on the aspects that seem to have a strong relationship in matters pertaining to segregation in urban schooling system.
Despite the critique of objective normativity, Habermas's program does not neatly fit into the postmodern relativism of his Continental counterparts such as Foucault and Derrida. Habermas's concept of communicative rationality established a theoretical stance from which to analyze the epistemological structures of society and individuals that appreciated and was sensitive to the contextualized and historicized nature of reason and rationality without giving in totally to the sort of radical relativism that his intellectual contemporaries are usually accused of.
