1. Explain the basics of structural functionalism and then use it to describe race. Include in your answer what types of functions a functionalist would claim race and racism serve (How does using the concept of race create stability and harmony) and if you think structural functionalism is the proper way to view race in the United States. Be sure to explain why you think it is a good way or not a good way. Some keywords to include are: functions, dysfunction, moral
  2. Compare and contrast race, ethnicity, sex, and gender. Include in your answer how they are similar and how they are different from one another (Usually a good idea to directly compare race and sex and then ethnicity and gender to one another). Which one do you think has caused more inequality in our country? Please use statistics from lecture and the book or from the provided link below.  Do you think if you used different statistics your answer might be different? (Hint: Open the attached .pdf below and read the section entitled “Race and Hispanic Origin”. Then look at Figure 2 in the same document. That should give you all the information you need to make a direct comparison for the year 2015 in terms on income.)
  3. Describe the differences and similarities between folkways, mores, and laws. Provide a definition and example of each.    Also, discuss what anomie is and its connection to norms. Be sure to discuss what types of events would create anomie on a national or worldwide scale. Lastly, include what type of things could erode anomie. Could the appearance of a charismatic leader? What else could?
