Question Description

Help me study for my Sociology class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

Start with:

  1. What is racial profiling? Provide examples of how law enforcement, government officials and/or ordinary citizens use racial profiling in the aftermath of 9/11. (review Arizona case). How might the contact hypothesis remedy profiling?
  2. Discuss various ethnocentric practices historically used by those in power that have contributed to prejudicial attitudes towards racial and minority groups.
  3. What is the social construction of race? Provide a symbolic interactionist perspective. How can this concept (social construction of race) be applied to Americans from multiple racial backgrounds?
  4. Define the term model minority. Discuss which minority group is perceived as living up to that image. Discuss advantages and disadvantages of being a model minority.

Skip a page, then answer these:

1. Pick three categories of gender/sex/sexuality/identity form this chart (attached below)

2. Write a paragraph for each category thoroughly defining the areas you chose. Be sure to cite your sources.

3. Write a brief reflection paragraph on your gender/sex/sexuality/identity. Do you feel comfortable sharing your identities with others? Why or why not?
