Structural Racism and Racial Discrimination
Each week, you will be asked to respond to the prompt or prompts in the discussion forum. Your initial post should be 75-150 words in length, and is due on Sunday. By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers. If you have not done so lately, please review the Rules of Discussion.
For your follow up post…review the responses provided by your peers. Engage in conversation, or even civil debate, as you discuss their insights and viewpoints. You may ask questions for clarification (if you are confused by their initial post) or pose questions that advance the conversation. You might even find a topic that leads you to further research in the area!
Race is socially constructed and passed on through cultural exchange.
Pay special attention to the operationalization definition of racial discrimination and structural racism.
Considering what you learned from our textbook, the podcast and taking your personal experiences into account, will the changing composition in our population change our definitions of ethnicity and race?
Will it cause changes in racial discrimination and structural racism? In the discussion forum, discuss why or why not.
