This course explores the relationships between majority and minority populations in the United States. We will begin to understand the concepts of race and ethnicity not as static, but as changing phenomena. What is the nature of American identity? What are the social structural causes of inequality? This course will provide a sociological perspective centered on questions of race, identity and inter-group relations. We will explore such topics as the nature of prejudice and racism, policies affecting minorities, the social construction of race and immigration to the United States. (SUNY-SS)
