S110 – Assignment 5 1. Given the discussion about segregation in Chapter 32, how might Durkheim and Cobb incorporate their work into Fainstein’s arguments (about segregation and race). (In other words, put these three authors in dialogue and discuss what Durkheim and Cobb might add to the conversation about segregation and race) (4-5 sentences, 10 pts) Cobb’s view of social support and Fainstein’s claims about segregation and race go in tandem with one another. There is an inequality between blacks and whites who are in the same social class, which Fainstein makes several claims about. It is commonly known that people of the same race have a tendency to belong to communities in which they are surrounded by people whom they can relate to and are like them. White people tend to consider ghettos as a black problem, even though there are many lower-class white people who are in the same living situation as them. Due to segregation, blacks feel a lack of Cobb’s idea of social support from other races that may be in the same unfortunate social situation as them. Durkeim’s theory of suicide would tie into this issue because if a certain race, blacks in this case, feel disconnected from society, suicide rates among that group would likely be high. 2. In your opinion, can black-white segregation ever have positive consequences for blacks? Explain why or why not? (4-5 sentences, 10pts)
