Question description

THE POWER AND CHALLENGE OF DIVERSITY

Read the Discussion Participation Scoring Guide to learn how the instructor will evaluate your discussion participation throughout this course. After watching the Race and Sex: What We Think (But Can't Say) video, reviewing the data presented in Demographic Characteristics by Race, and completing the Unit 1 reading, answer each of the following questions in your initial post:

  • Discuss how the increasing diversity of the U.S. population can be an opportunity rather than a detriment. Reflect on the benefits of diversity, for individuals, for society, and for institutions like the workplace, the health care system, and the educational system.
  • Diversity can create challenges for society as well as opportunities. In your opinion, what social issue do you think is the most likely to cause hostility along racial, ethnic, or gender lines? Which sociological theory covered in Chapter 1 of the Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class text can help us understand why this issue occurs?
  • Describe how the social issue you have chosen above should be addressed. Reflect on whether potential solutions need to be micro-based (directed toward the individual) or macro-based (directed toward society as a whole), or perhaps a combination of both approaches.
