Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Drawing on your own experiences and the module content, respond to the following questions in your discussion forum posting. Your post should contain three strong paragraphs with at least four to five sentences in each paragraph.
1. First, analyze how racial stereotyping can be understood using at least three major concepts from our textbook readings of Chapters 3 and 4. For example, what key concepts apply specifically to the reasons that stereotyping exists? How does our reading content explain the impact of stereotypes on individuals?
2. Second, many scholars argue that education is an important answer to the racial divide in the United States. Give one example of an innovative education program that has been implemented in the United States. Then, explain how this program is intended to address the racial divide. What makes it succeed or fail?
Finally, based upon our module content, propose one key policy change that you think could reduce racism in the United States. For example, do we need to strengthen affirmative action? What about affordable housing and integrated neighborhoods? There are a lot of possibilities here. Be sure to include in your response how this policy change could reduce racism and why.
