Sociology

MUST ANSWER Question # 1.

Next, pick another question from the remaining 3 and answer it. Please answer all parts of the question you choose to answer. You should answer both the questions in one single post rather than respond to each question in different posts. 

I am looking forward to a great discussion from all of you this week.

1. Visit the PBS Web site and view, Race: The Power of Illusion > Sorting People, and then select: Begin Sorting. See if you can sort the people into racial classifications just by the person’s appearance. Check your results and describe what you found.  There will probably be many misclassified people. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.

       What does this exercise tell you about assumptions on ‘races’? Write at least a good-size paragraph (1/2 a page) about your findings.

The score you get on this activity will not be counted towards your grade. 🙂

2.  Explain the difference between ‘prejudice’ and ‘discrimination’. Describe Merton’s diagram for explaining the intersections of prejudice and discrimination. Give examples (other than those mentioned in the text) for each cell in his chart.

3. What does real estate value have to do with school segregation? With this correlation in mind, how have inequalities in wealth contributed to long-term inequality between blacks and whites in the U.S.

4. Does racism still exist? Explain you stance with examples. Next, explain the difference between individual-level racism and institutional racism and provide examples of each.  Lastly, what are some ways we could minimize both types of racism?  Which type might be more difficult to identify and eliminate and why?
