Yolanda Campos Axia College Material Appendix B Checkpoint: The Sociology of Race and Ethnicity Note : Some descriptions were adapted from Richard Schaefer’s Racial and Ethnic Groups , 10th ed., 2006. Description Key Term This group is the same as a subordinate group. A defining feature of this group is that its members have less control or power over their lives than do members of dominant groups. Minority group This describes the social structure between competing groups as defined by conflict or tension. An example would be the conflict that occurs between Haitians and United States citizens when Haitian refugees seek a new home in the United States. Conflict perspective This is a group with distinct national origins or cultural patterns. For example, Norwegian Americans belong to this type of group. Ethnic group Women are considered the social minority in the United States because they belong to this group, and are sometimes subject to prejudice and discrimination.

    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.
