Racial and Ethnic Relations in the United States historically have been for the most part controversial and difficult to understand. As broad categories, race and ethnicity, play central roles in the reinforcing of patterns of power and inequality in society. The categorization of groups in these ways has resulted in the uneven distribution of social resources, especially when it comes to social mobility
Implied are the contradict ways which realities or experiences affect one group more so than others. While being prejudicial towards someone or a group may not result in discrimination, such an argument fails to consider the importance of stereotypes and labels in the ways in which we as individuals make use of them in our everyday interactions and encounters.
Using your sociological imagination, discuss how of socialization, culture (remember culture includes media representation of images., movies, commercials, ads, etc), deviant behaviors and institutional racism contribute to the persistence of racial and ethnic inequalities. In your analysis, you must apply one of three theoretical perspective as well as one sociological theorist.
