Question Description

Submit a proposal for your final paper. This document should include a thesis question related to the course material. This question should not be answerable with a simple yes or no response. For example, "Does racism still exist?" Propose what, how, or why questions, such as, "How is residential segregation perpetuated in the post-civil rights era?" to circumvent this problem. Second, students should propose a thesis statement that directly answers the aforementioned thesis question. Third, each outline should include an introduction, three substantive sections supporting the thesis statement, sub-points related to each substantive section, and a conclusion. The sub-points should be a minimum of 2-3 sentences in length and the conclusion a full paragraph. Finally, students should include a reference section that includes at least four academic-related sources (see attached example for formatting).

All outlines should be three-pages in length, and include a title page, substantive page (thesis question/statement, body paragraph summary, conclusion), and reference page (APA formatted).

Racism and Ethnicity

Ethnicity on the other hand borrows heavily from race, only that the groupings are smaller and
more defined. Africa has the highest number of ethnic communities in the world.
Racism and negative ethnicity counts are forms of discrimination because people are
unfairly treated with the basis of the races and the Ethnic groups that they come from. Diversity

Religion and political ideology
Different communities all across the world are either subscribed to one religion or are
