The challenge of anti-racism.

The qualitative research selected offered depth of understanding on the research topic. This was particularly true when it came to examine the nuances in attitudes and behaviors of Caribbean black women, and assessing social processes over time. Consequently, the main strength of this method rests in the depth of understanding that it permits. While some quantitative research methodologies may be challenged as superficial, this problem is rarely associated with qualitative research (Creswell & Creswell, 2017). Further, the qualitative method that was selected was flexible in nature. This is one of the leading strengths of qualitative design, since it gives room for the modification of the research design at any specific point in time.

A total of 200 participants were selected for the study. The participants were Caribbean black women who form part of the American workforce, drawn from both the formal and informal sectors. The participants were selected through random stratified sampling. This method entailed dividing the population into subgroups or strata and taking a random sample from each stratum through simple random or systematic sampling. This sampling procedure was selected since it supports representation of all groups of participants within the selected study population. These include Caribbean black women who are young, old, and from different countries and sectors.

The participants were administered with personal interviews and questionnaires as the main data gathering methods. Personal interviews were conducted to collect qualitative data about their views, feelings, and attitudes about working in the American job labor force. The interviews were done in different places, including the interviewees’ workplaces, homes, and factory sites. Respondents were contacted, and informed consent gained from them. The data collected were analyzed using content analysis procedures.
