CHECK YOUR PROGRESS SHOW LESS  Context How are different social groups portrayed in the mass media in contemporary society? How far have we come in terms of reducing or eliminating stereotypical images and portrayals of minority groups? To answer these questions, we need to place them in the context of the economic, technological, and social changes that have shaped postindustrial U.S. society and affected relationships between diverse groups in our society. For example, watching TV sitcoms and dramas today we see not only much greater diversity in cast members but also minority group members playing leading roles, something that was much less common just a few decades ago. As we analyze how the various media forms portray cultural diversity, another thing to consider is the role of people with power in the media industry—those who make the decisions about what stories and images appear on a TV news program or magazine or newspaper article and how those programs or stories will be framed. Questions to Consider To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. Some sociologists who study the media argue that the media is a reflection of what is already happening in society, while others contend that the media manipulates its audience by portraying events or issues with a particular slant or goal in mind. What do you think? Does the media reflect what is already going on in society, or does it manipulate viewers to draw conclusions about what is going on? Perhaps a bit of both? Consider the implications in terms of how the media portrays diversity-related issues like racism and sexism. Can our interaction with media—movies, TV shows, news and radio programs, and so on—have any influence on our understanding of race, ethnicity, social class, gender, age, religion, et cetera? To what extent does the news media create and perpetuate stereotypes about particular groups of people?

SHOW LESS  Assessment Instructions In this assessment, you will have the opportunity to take a deeper look at the connection between the media and the cultural diversity of U.S. society. You will discuss how a current program or article in current news media approaches diversity-related issues and explain how we can use the sociological perspective to better understand both the portrayal of diversity-related issues and the media's broader role in U.S. society. Effectively evaluating the accuracy of the information provided in your chosen media piece will require some additional research and fact checking, something that sociologists do as well when they are weighing the validity of opposing arguments. Deliverable Choose a news media piece from a reputable source that is focused on an issue related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, physical or mental disability, or social class. Examples of acceptable media include newspaper articles, editorials, and radio or television news segments. Write an essay in which you complete the following: Briefly, in one or two paragraphs, summarize the main events or issues presented in the article and describe how they relate to cultural diversity studies. Compare and contrast how minority and dominant groups are portrayed in your chosen media article or program. Consider how your source material demonstrates this dominant/minority group differentiation. For example, is there differentiation along racial or ethnic lines, or other variables, such as gender or social class? Discuss at least two sociological theories that are most appropriate to understanding the diversity issues in your chosen media piece. Include relevant examples from the article or program to illustrate your points. Examples of theories include: Functionalist perspective. Conflict perspective. Labeling theory. Marx's and Weber's theories of inequality. Park's race relations cycle. Gordon's theory of assimilation. Human capital theory. Scapegoat theory. Authoritarian personality theory. Exploitation theory. Contact hypothesis. Noel hypothesis. Blauner hypothesis. Culture of poverty theory. Do one of the following—choose which is appropriate for your chosen article: Discuss how one or more of Merton's four categories of prejudice and discrimination apply to the media piece you chose. Explain whether assimilation or pluralism best describes how race and ethnic relations are presented in your media piece. Find and analyze two credible sources of data that are appropriate for supporting or refuting the central tenets of your chosen media article or program. If data is cited in your media piece, you may go to that source and analyze it yourself; then consult an additional source that supports or refutes the data presented. Make sure to include citations for any sources used. Discuss how the content of the media piece may affect or might have been influenced by power. For example, consider how individuals in power influence decisions regarding how issues are portrayed. This can include corporate executives, lobbyists, special interest groups, or those who own a particular newspaper, channel, or media conglomerate. Suggest, in your concluding paragraph, a viable policy strategy—one that could be implemented at the local, state, or federal level—for addressing the particular diversity-related issue presented in your news article or program. Additional Requirements Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message. Length: 6–8 pages, not including title and references pages. Format: Include a title page and reference page, and format the paper and your citations according to current APA style and formatting guidelines. Sources: Cite the chosen article or program and at least two additional scholarly sources. Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12-point.

Competency Map Use this online tool to track your performance and progress through your course. CHECK YOUR PROGRESS SHOW LESS  Context Many of the current political, legal, and social debates in U.S. society center around diversity and its related issues. Two of those debates concern immigration policy and same-sex marriage. These debates involve not only arguments regarding discriminatory treatment of particular ethnic groups or sexual minorities but also legal, economic, and religious questions and concerns. Applying the sociological perspective to these debates is useful, because it requires researching these diverse perspectives and placing them in historical and contemporary contexts to gain a deeper understanding of the causes and consequences of the debate and current and proposed policy solutions. This also puts us in a position in which we can more accurately evaluate and critique the merits of comments made and policies suggested by politicians, leaders, and others with a stake in these debates. Questions to Consider To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. How and why has U.S. immigration policy changed since the mid-20th century? What are the similarities and differences between current immigrant groups and patterns of immigration compared to historical trends? What are the costs and benefits of immigration, whether legal or illegal, for the United States as a whole? What are the key arguments of the stakeholders in the debate about the morality and legality of same-sex marriage rights? How should disparities between state and federal policies regarding same-sex marriage be handled?

Immigration policies

Provide an overview and description of the central issue you have chosen to address.
Some of the manifestos that most American president has been relying on are to set
immigrant policies that will improve the United States economy and job market (Davidson,
2015). There have been myths since the time of immemorial that immigrants steal jobs from the
Americans. Maybe that is why the president of United States president promised his citizen on
changing the policies. Some of the venture that president Trump promised the country is to
construct the war around Mexican border (Heer, 2018). He also pledged to put strict deportation
policies. President Trump in his right mind thought that foreigners and immigrants are stealing
jobs from the Americans (Sen, & Mamdouh, 2008). I grew up with the grandparent who had
taken part in the world war ww11. They carried the same notion that most people in the country
believe that foreigners only come into the country to steal their jobs. President Trump in June
2015 asserted,” They are taking our jobs. They are taking our manufacturing jobs. They are
making money. They are killing us. “However, in this speech, I am going to focus on whether
the immigrant is improving our economy or stealing the American job opportunity
Describe the evolution of the social movements that are a precursor for or have emerged as
a result of your chosen issue.
Before 1882 the United States immigration policies used to state that"Y' all come." That
meant that foreigners were welcomed to work into the country. Immigrants were also to work so
that they can survive (Davidson, 20150. However, the restriction started in 1882 when the first of
the three Chinese exclusion acts automatically became the law. Through the implementation of
general limit over time it finally became law in 1920. However, it seems that most American are
for the perception that immigrants in the country are stealing job opportunities reserved for them.

Most presidents over time have been working on the issues to please their citizens (Favell, 2015).
Most people can make noise and the president promise for the implementation of immigrant
policies, but the problems is there to stay. The issue has been under debate for a very long time
but most presidents use it as a tool of campaigns.
Describe any milestones that have characterized the development of the social movement
involving your issue.
Immigrants usually come into the countries following many reasons. Some come for
studies, jobs and other simple come as refugees. The availability of immigrants in the country
only improves the economy because most come with the family whereby they have to meet
social amenities (Davidson, 2015). Immigrants have to take their children to school, hospital and
even buy food at the end they improve the economy of the country. Therefore, most immigrants
come to the country to improve the economy. Similarly, people should stop relying on the
fallacy that there are just enough jobs and if an immigrant is employed, then another one will
lose their job.
Immigrants not only increase the supply of jobs but also increase the demand for the
same. Using the wages, those people get the build apartments, get a haircut, eat and even use a
cellphone. This means that certain business such as building apartments, selling food, and haircut
shops are developed and earn income from those people (Heer, 2018). In general, they increase
the size of the population in the country leading to an improved economy. If increasing pollution
reduces job opportunity, then those students in the school will somewhat reduce job opportunity
after school. In America, there are a lot of jobs that most natives don't fill like doing. As a result,
the immigrants fill these positions. Most of the jobs in American are physically demanding, and

as such, they are only filled by immigrant leading to an increased number of an immigrant in the
country.
Briefly analyze the following for your selected topic: The evolution of federal legislation on
the issue over the past ten years
For the first century in the United States, everyone could come and stay in the country
without any restrictions. On the other hand, the country had a clear naturalization law from the
start. In 1790 the Congress passed the first naturalization policy in America. The naturalization
act of 1790 stated that those people who had lived in the country for more than two years had to
apply for citizenship (Davidson, 2015). However, they were restricted to be free white persons
with good morals. The naturalization act of 1798 added more 14 years. The 14th amendment act
passed in 1966 to allow slaves to own citizenship in the country with the help of the right civil
law of 1866. Every race and color was declared to be the citizens of the United States. Anyone
who wanted to be a leader was supposed to be naturalized. Voters were to be naturalized citizens
as well. Therefore, one was to undergo a naturalization process to become a real citizen.
Open immigration was in the process until the 1870s and 1880s where eugenics drove
the country to adopt immigration policies. The law was set to terminate the free migration which
the country had relied on for a very long time. In the 19th-century immigration policies was in
exercise, and the like of Japanese contractor was given the limitation time of entering the
country. In 1882, United States passed the law against the entry of lunatics into the country as
well as infectious disease carriers (Sen, & Mamdouh, 2008). In 1921, emergence quota act was
passed based on the number of a factor of the immigrant born resident almost of policies had
been caught and recently president trump has adopted his policies including putting a stop to

green cards. President Trump has also opted to stop giving visa to seven Muslim countries and
create a wall between the United States and Mexico.
The current political landscape, including key political debates related to your central issue
The current situation in the country revolves around president Trump. The current
president is discussing how he is going to reduce the number of immigrants in the country. He
asserts that the country is facing a lot of challenges including drug trafficking and increased
criminal rate (Davidson, 2015). The illegal immigrant caught crossing the border will not be
tolerated. Some of the reforms that the presented has promised to work on include increased
border securing funding, stopping and ending the visa lottery, restriction of family-based
immigration and a path to citizenship dreamers. However, the whole issue has been under
debate. Many scholars and historians citing that immigrants improve the economy of the country
and American citizens cause most of the crimes.
Introduce the talented political players in the national debate, and discuss how sociological
theory can be used to understand why some players have more power than others in this
debate.
Congress has been unable to reach on the solution on the migration policies for years.
The opponent on the same issue states that immigrant has contributed to the growth of the
country’s economy (Heer, 2018). The opponent also says that Mexico has played a significant
role in the country's economy through trade and agriculture. Therefore, putting a wall on the
country will only result in disagreement and the lousy relationship between the two countries.
However, Congress and president in power assert that the country has to let go of the
undocumented population. The American workforce has been primarily occupied by the

immigrant, and the citizens are jobless. Where the community will relocate to is another
challenge because most of them have lived all their lives in America.
Discuss how the continued uncertainty in political and legal environments affects
stakeholders who are seeking to expand their rights or challenge existing policies. Describe
tactics used to further the cause.
It will be challenging because the only people who will be allowed in America are those
who are competent with high ranks in the workforce. The American immigration policy seeks to
do away with the undocumented population that is not competent. Consequently, the country
wills not allow them into the country (Davidson, 2015). Furthermore, the country is also working
on reducing the policies that allow the whole family into the country. As such, it will be hard for
those pe...
