is subjectively construed through a moral society's intelligent eye and theoretical lens. A moral society to me is a collective of social participants who discern right from wrong by establishing a common set of values, beliefs, and norms. The dominance of White Europeans in America results in the ascendance of moral values and beliefs endorsed by Whites, leading to a distorted perception through the filtered lens of a White perspective. The establishment of power hierarchy legitimizes the dominant culture's constitution of normalcy, thereby creating the social construction of "other." Power and control are the antecedents for social construction of "other," while the consequences reinforce and perpetuate power imbalance and social dominance.
