1. Description of Social Stratification (please label section) 1.1 Describe social stratification (specific to the social stratification you have chosen: gender, race, age or social class). Cite your source! Racial Stratification- Racial and ethnic stratification refers systems of inequality in which some fixed groups membership, such as race, religion, or national origin is a major criterion for ranking social positions and their differential rewards. (Social Stratification) 1.2 Who says there is social stratification? Find sources that discuss the area of social stratification you have chosen and its (non)existence and reasons for/against. Cite your source! “The Unites States was built up on an economy of slavery. That in itself was no crime. Many societies and countries have been based on slavery. The crime of the United States is that it is the first and only country which, having freed its slaves legally, by proclamation, by law and in the courts, then continued to enslave them and denied them equal rights on the basis of their color.” (Boggs, 1970)(Social Stratification) “A society which had consistently underinvested in black students ought to now adopt race based policies aimed at helping young blacks overcome the deficits yielded by segregation. The legacy of decades of systematic deprivation could be overcome only by color conscious policies direct at the victims of that deprivation.” (Howard, 1997) (Social Stratification) 1.3 What evidence do you have that social stratification exists? Here you want to focus on stratification in general or in a different institutional area that you will focus on in #2 below. Provide social statistics that support your claim? Information for this can come from the US Census, journal articles, etc. Cite your source!

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
