Because racial inequality has always been a significant factor in shaping the lives of Americans, the study of racial and ethnic issues is essential to the understanding of American society. This course will stress the importance of comparative analysis, namely that of variations among ethnic groups, African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Whites. Topics include assimilation, segregation, discrimination, immigration and inter-racial dynamics.
