Multiculturalism What’s in a name? We have to think how words are perceived by people. One African-American journalism consultant is insulted when people say he’s articulate Hard to get people to agree on definitions of such loaded words as “majority,” “ghetto,” and “inner city” “Black” preferred by some in the race to “African-American” “Chicano” preferred by some of that race in Southwest, but others prefer “Latino,” “Mexican- American,” etc. How do you know which term to use? You can ask Issues and possible answers Get a list of courses advocating for different groups, such as race, disability, gender and others Hiring more minorities as a way to become more sensitive to their needs Publications geared specifically at racial, ethnic minorities Avoid ghettoizing into stories about crime and sports Gender stereotypes Women get stereotyped as caring about child support and social issues

    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.
