In a 500 to 700 word APA formatted paper, integrate your readings on racism, ethnocentrism, prejudice, nativism, xenophobia, groupthink, prestige hierarchy, and discrimination.
- Define the terms in your own words while citing sources in the textbook and other course materials.
- Examine how this is an important element of American history in the development of a diverse culture, while at the same time increasing social distance.
- Include a description of how Affirmative Action has reformed some of the discrimination and racism in the United States while also enhancing social distance.
- Attempt to align your findings with Structural Functionalism, Conflict Perspective, and/or Symbolic Interactionism. (Note: You are not just to copy what Parilla’s conclusions are here).
- You may also add your own experiences to how these things have affected your lives and community.
- Sources from the textbook and course materials must be cited, both in text and on a reference page according to APA standards
