1. Minority groups lack access, resources, privileges, and opportunities; they are systematically excluded from positions of power and wealth or limited in what positions and power they can attain. Minorities have less power over their daily lives, often the victim of social forces and trends, lacking many of the resources needed to control their destiny. Rather than shaping social institutions, the lives of minorities get controlled by institutions that serve the interests of the majority.

    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.
