Discussion 1 part 1 In Omi and Winant’s article, it is mentioned that race is indeed a “sociohistorical concept.” (p.15). What this means, is that the concept of race has constantly changed over time, and surely will continue to do so. Because of this, in order to really understand race as a social concept, you must accept at its past, consider its present, and plan for its future. Additionally, you have to look into concepts that are discussed in our textbook such as white privilege. This phenomenon where those who are white typically have a better time with a lot of things such as education, jobs, etc. is not intertwined within DNA. Even though we are technically born with it, white privilege is the result of the choices that society members of the past created. So, I guess the biggest takeaway is that race is not within us like ethnicity is. Race is based on societies actions and behaviors. 2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
