Option A All across the United States there are many cities with many different racial compositions. I am from Leechburg, Pennsylvania with a population of approximately 10156 people. I have lived in Leechburg for my entire life and have felt that is an area mostly made up of white Americans. Therefore, for this assignment I decided to look at the racial composition statistics of my area to find out if my assumption was indeed correct. My hometown area has a very lopsided racial composition just as I had expected. Of the 10156 people living in my town, approximately 98 percent are white with 0.9 percent being black and the other 1.1 percent being another race or more than one race. Just as I had assumed, my hometown is practically all composed of the white race. The racial composition of my area is slightly different than the racial composition of the United States. The racial composition of the United States is made up of approximately 75.1 percent white, 12.3 percent black, and the remaining 12.6 percent of other races or of mixed races.

    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.
