Questions:
Part 1 Read Sections 3.1,3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8 After reading about the Indicators of Racial and Ethnic Inequality in the United States (income, education, poverty, and health) which one causes the most harm for ethnic and racial minorities in our society? Explain how you came to this conclusion with concrete examples and academic evidence. Part 2
Read the piece on Affirmative Action. In your opinion, does affirmative action do a good job improving opportunities for minorities? Why or why not? You may need to include other sources on this topic to defend your point of view. (Please cite your source.) Requirements:
Initial forum postings should be a minimum of 150 words. Each student must also respond to a minimum of 2 fellow students’ postings. Responses to each question should draw on key concepts you have learned during the week’s reading. All written assignments must be in the student’s own words, and MUST include citations (in proper APA format) giving the source credit for ANY paraphrases or direct quotes based on published authors’ work, and should be submitted error free.
Your comments to your classmates need to be substantive. A substantive comment contributes a new idea or perspective, a good follow-up question to a point made, offers a response to a question, provides an example or illustration of a key point, points out an inconsistency in an argument, etc. Thus a message that simply says “I agree” is not substantive.
