  • Constructing Race. Review the PBS website RACE – The Power of an Illusion as you prepare for this discussion. This site offers many examples of how the science of human difference contradicts ordinary ideas of race.

  • As we see in the readings and in this website, race is socially constructed, a system of thought and human behavior not directly based on nature, instead resulting from social ideas and practices. In other words, race exists because people believe it is real and important.

SOC 308 Week 2 DQ 1 Legacy of Slavery

  • Implications of Anglo Dominance in the United States. Please respond to the following:

  • Since the European settlement of North America, white, Anglo Americans have dominated the political landscape. Define, in your own words, Anglo dominance and describe how Anglos built and have maintained said dominant system. Assess whether or not Anglos will continue to dominate the political landscape in the United States and what changes are necessary to establish a more equitable sharing of power.

  • Legacy of Slavery. Listen to or read Dr. King’s speech, I Have a Dream. Then, respond to the following:

  • Dr. King’s famous speech envisions a future in which the racial distinction established by slavery and segregation is no more. Evaluate the ways in which the legacy of slavery has prevented the United States from building a more just society, supporting your evaluation with the textbook and additional sources.

  • By the mid-twentieth century, European immigrant groups described in Week One had combined to form a white racial majority in the United States. Today, Blacks, Native Americans, Asians, Hispanics, and non-white Europeans interact with the white majority in a system of race that can be broadly described as comprising whites and non-whites, whites and racial minorities, or whites and people of color.

  • Based on the information you gleaned from the FBI website above, discuss a statistic, study, or other fact that surprised you or has affected your community and what the numbers say about offenses against this specific protected class.

SOC 308 Week 4 DQ 2 The Cosmic Race

SOC 308 Week 5 DQ 1 Northern Ireland

  • The Cosmic Race. Jose Vasconcelos proposed the assimilation of ethnic groups in Mexico into a new "cosmic race." This concept is discussed in the readings as well as in The Cosmic Race. More information can be found with a web search.

  • After reviewing your text, the linked document above, and others found in your web search, describe what Jose Vasconcelos means by a cosmic race and then evaluate the cultural ramifications of this idea. Compare this evaluation with the melting pot ideal of the US. Use these two examples to infer the role of national or cultural identity to a given society.

  • when English King, Henry II invaded the island to expand his empire. Since then, politics in the region has been characterized by varying degrees of tension between Irish independence and British rule. This tension has often flared into violent conflict. As in other global situations, what might be more accurately described as a political and economic conflict has become an ethnic conflict, with opposing groups unified around cultural and religious identities.

SOC 308 Week 5 DQ 2 Why War

SOC 308 Week 5 Final Paper

  • Why War? Review the Conflict Map to prepare for this discussion. Based on your review of the information provided in the conflict map site, analyze the impact of ethnic conflict in the world today. Examples include:

  • a. Sudan

  • b. Eastern Congo/Rwanda

  • c. Iraq

  • d. Sri Lanka

  • e. Former Yugoslavia (Croatia, Bosnia, and Serbia)

  • Final Paper

  • A sociologist must be able to analyze racial and ethnic differences in different national contexts. For example, in the U.S., we tend to think of race in a particular way. In order to develop this skill, select and analyze a society demonstrating ethnic stratification and conflict, including evidence of prejudice and discrimination. In addition to a description of the selected society, include an analysis of similarities and differences as compared to the United States.
