How Much Do You Know About  Culture and  Intolerance Toward Others? False Among the core American values identified by  sociologists is the belief that one’s own racial  or ethnic group should be valued above all  others. Inherent in this belief may be the assumption of  racism—that members of racial–ethnic  categories other than one’s own are somehow  inferior

What students are saying

    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.
