Your questionnaire must include the required minimum demographic questions (age and gender) and 10 - 20 questions. 5. You should have a MINIMUM OF 5 SOURCES, in your bibliography/reference page, from which you have obtained information/data for your literature review of your paper. Failure to have enough sources will mean a deduction of points. 6. ALL of your sources that you have read concerning your topic should be included in your bibliography/reference page.

Failure to utilize the topic headings will mean an automatic deduction of 30 points. COMPLETED PAPER The Complete Research Paper! A. STATEMENT OF THE RESEARCH PROBLEM B. LITERATURE REVIEW C. HYPOTHESIS D. METHODS E. DATA COLLECTION F. DATA ANALYSIS G. DATA SHEET H. CONCLUSIONS I. REFERNCE/BIBLIOGRAPHY PAGE J. Blank Questionnaire YOUR PAPER SHOULD HAVE THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS: A. STATEMENT OF THE RESEARCH PROBLEM One to two paragraphs (100 – 200 words) which specifically discuss the intent of the research. Make statements about “This research will -”. Avoid questions (?) in this section (or any sections) of the research paper. Remember you are making a STATEMENT of the PROBLEM. Questions cause doubt in the readers mind. You are attempting to make a point. For example a start might be, “This research will investigate A; B; C; D. Be specific about exactly what this research will do and how (questionnaire) it will be accomplished. Discuss briefly what methods of investigation and analysis you will use. A common problem with this section is it gets too long. It should be concise and directly to the point. DO NOT WRITE IN THE FIRST PERSON. ELIMINATE THE WORD “I”, “we”, “they”, “our(‘s)”, or “their(‘s)” . B. LITERATURE REVIEW Write at least 500 words discussing information that has been previously written on the issue. This is the Library Research (historical) component of your research paper. You should try to include as much as you can which directly relates to your research paper. This section should compare and contrast different authors, opinions, and concepts. The Literature Review is NOT a series of book reports. This section is a mini standard research paper/essay. C. HYPOTHESIS This hypothesis is based on the literature you have read, your questionnaire, and your sociological intuition/imagination. (250 words) It will contain the expected answers to the questions you have developed in your questionnaire. 1. Be specific and try to guess the percentages (% of answers to your questions) of how people will respond to ALL of your questions. You should address the expected answers to each question separately. 2. Try to have some reason or rationale as to why you expect your results. 3. Make sure you remove numbers (#’s) for questions. Do not say “Question #1…” or “#1…”. Restate the question. 4. DO NOT WRITE IN THE FIRST PERSON. ELIMINATE THE WORD “I”, “we”, ”us”, “they”, “our(‘s)”, or “their(‘s)” . D. METHODS The specific methods and any materials used to collect information. (200 words) EVERYONE will use the SURVERY or QUESTIONNAIRE METHOD of COLLECTING DATA. Your QUESTIONNAIRE will have between 10-20 questions. Do the “W” words. (Who, What, When, Where, Why and the backwards one, How) What exactly did you do to collect information? Be as specific as you can. DO NOT WRITE IN THE FIRST PERSON. ELIMINATE THE WORD “I”, “we”, “they”, “our(‘s)”, or “their(‘s)” . 1. Where did you go? 2. Who did you ask? 3. 4. 5. 6. When did you do it? Why did you select these people? What did you do? How did you ask your questions? In developing your paper one of the critical things you want to focus on is defining your “population”. The more specific and precise you are the better your results. You need 30 people to fill out your survey. As far a survey research goes 30 people is an extremely small number of people. To begin with, 30 is probably too small a number to really do a great study. Try to get one group of people if you can. Try to stay within a boundary like a class you are in, your church, a sports team, employees at a business, people at a pro-wrestling match. AVOID doing the mix and match method – I’ll get a couple from my church, a few from my family, a few of my friends, a few people from work. Try to focus on one specific group so you can define your population easily. E. DATA COLLECTION During the actual process of collecting data did you have any problems collecting information? Did people understand your questions? (100 – 200 words) For most of you this will be a relatively short section because you won’t have many problems. DO NOT WRITE IN THE FIRST PERSON. ELIMINATE THE WORD “I”, “we”, “they”, “our(‘s)”, or “their(‘s)” . F. DATA ANALYSIS This IS the most important section of the paper. This section should be a minimum of 1,000 words. This section must include the statistical analysis of the information collected by the research. This analysis requires using “Raw Numbers” (actual number results). The optional way (actually more scientific) is to present the “Raw Numbers” and “Percentages”. DO NOT WRITE IN THE FIRST PERSON. ELIMINATE THE WORD “I”, “we”, “they”, “our(‘s)”, or “their(‘s)” . 1) Your paper should report and address ALL the results and statistics found for EACH QUESTION. 2) It should also include analysis for each question stating what your data means for the answers you found for that question. 3) You should re-integrate any information from your literature review that substantiates or refutes your findings. 4) Discuss any pertinent parts of your hypothesis here. Was your hypothesis proven correct or incorrect. 5) Make sure you remove numbers (#’s) for questions. Do not say “Question #1…” or “#1…”. Restate the question. ****Most students do well with the reporting of the data. The biggest problem I see with this section is the lack of critical analysis. That is the MOST IMPORTANT portion of any research. Getting back to Weber’s “Sociological Imagination” – WHY did you get those results?*** G. DATA SHEET This sheet would sum up the answers for each question. Filling in a blank questionnaire with the statistics you collected provides a good tool for a data sheet. The data should be presented in raw numbers (actual results), or raw numbers and percentages (best). Simply take a blank copy of your questionnaire and save it as a file. Type the results into the survey and you have produced a very simple spread-sheet of your data. This is a very simple way for a reader to be able to see all of your data at a glance. This allows the readers to see your all of your exact questions and all of the responses. H. CONCLUSIONS This section will be only about 125 – 250 words. What is the significance of the study? Was the hypothesis correct or incorrect and why? What are the significant and important aspects of this study? What are future concerns might be studied based on the results of your research? DO NOT WRITE IN THE FIRST PERSON. ELIMINATE THE WORD “I”, “we”, “they”, “our(‘s)”, or “their(‘s)” . OPTIONS FOR YOUR QUESTIONNAIRE: DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION: Your questionnaire MUST have the following two minimum demographic questions. You may have more if you desire or require: Age:____ Sex: MALE ___ FEMALE ___ Optional Demographics: These are other DEMOGRAPHIC categories that are often asked in questionnaires. Marital Status: Single ___ Married ___ Divorced ___ Widowed ___ Separated ___ Other __________ Number in Family: __________ Family income: __________ Political Party: ______________ Religious Preference: _____________ REMEMBER: Demographic information DOES NOT count as questions on your questionnaire. DEVELOPING YOUR QUESTIONS: 1. Try BRAINSTORMING questions. Sit down and write out as many questions as you can think of on the topic (You can always edit and reorganize them later.) 2. Keep the TOPIC in focus. Don’t drift off the topic area. 3. Closed ended questions: Try to stay with Yes/No or True/False types of questions. The more options you give people in their answers the harder it is to analyze. 4. Multiple-choice questions are also good. 5. Stay away from open-ended questions where the respondent can say anything they want to. 6. Write out the possible answer fully. YES not Y. True not T. Make sure your directions are clear. Make it as easy as possible answer the questions Check: ____ Yes ____ No Or Circle: A. Basketball B. Football C. Tennis The following is a sample questionnaire. It gives you some examples of different types of survey questions. My suggestion is for you to stay with closed ended questions. Stay away from open-ended questions. Open-ended questions will be very hard to analyze. If you ask 30 people you might get 30 different open-ended answers. The easiest to do would be a two option closed ended answer like: ____ Yes or ____No It will simplify results for you and cut down on the amount of math and calculations you have to do. Remember, the more possible answers you have the more statistics you will have to report and analyze. I would make all 10 questions like #7, #8, and #9 if I could. Please view the Powerpoint slide shows available in Blackboard to help you understand the project in more detail. The following is a sample questionnaire. I have created it to give you some sample questions. If I was doing this I would ask all of my questions like #’s 7, 8, &9 because they are all YES/NO answers and would require the least amount of math to record and analyze the results. I would avoid questions # 2 and 6 because they are ranking questions and require a much more sophisticated analysis of Data. I would also avoid a question like #10 which is an open ended question that is very difficult to analyze. ...

Racism is pervasive and remains a silent code in America and shuts doors for opportunities to
many individuals in the society. Members belonging to the minority groups or sub groups
continue to strain for equal access opportunities in diverse avenues of life particularly at the time
of stringent economics, dwindling natural resources, unemployment and influence in jury
opinions (NASW, 2016).
Racism has been a topic that sociologists have explored in details. Racism can be defined simply
as any policy, belief, attitude, action or inaction, which subordinates individuals or groups based
on their race (Wolf & Guin). Mostly, racism involves the skin color which is based on the
ethnicity. Around the globe, America can be termed as the place where the evil is evident. It has
been so due to the rampant of slave trade in ancient days. History provides us with a long record
white people holding and using power and privilege over people of color to subordinate them,
not the reverse (Bobo & Fox, 2003).
About ten years ago, a skeleton was uncovered on the banks of the Columbia River in Eastern
Washington; the bones were dated to around 7600 B.C.E. Almost immediately, a debate arose
over who had “rights” to the bones: the Umatilla, Yakama and Nez Perce tribes who saw the
remains as an ancestor who should be left alone and reburied, and members of the scientific
community—archeologists and anthropologists--who saw Kennewick Man as a rare find, a
for study that could reveal significant information about human history (Wolf & Guin). This
means that the power of race still wields us.



It has been evident from media the kind of oppressions black people go through. In his book,
‘Racial Oppression in America’, Robert Blauner traces the oppression from 1960s where colored
people invaded Africa with the mind of colonialization. From there henceforth, African freedom
has never be the again. Since then, oppression has been evident in diverse avenues of life hence
it has increased the quench in the topic (Bauner, 1972).
It has been proven that for the last 100 years, racism has claimed lives of more than 62 million
people. Today, we have a total of 22 million people in refugee camps who are the aftermath of
racism directly or indirectly. Colonialism was a powerful force that by 1900, for instance 90.4%
of Africa was under E...
