Prompt: Our course in the first half of the semester covered four (4) different lens/theories/perspectives/frameworks/paradigm to understand inequality along social categorical lines. The theories provided us ideas of how society is organized/structured around lineages of power. For example, if one is looking at American society from a “racial lens” one could see how advantages are awarded to communities across “racial lines” and how race structures social relationships (power dynamics) in the U.S. by race.
Essay Question: Using one of the following frameworks–“racial theory” or “ethnicity paradigm,” answer the following question: What does it mean to be an “American?”
