Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend this course. The professor is one of the best I have had at Oregon so far, she is smart and knows how to keep the students engaged. The material covered in the class is interesting and important. The reading we are given are insightful. Overall, the class teaches about aspects in life that are influenced by different forms of discrimination and I am made more aware of this by taking the class.
This course was focused on teaching about the fact that race is a social construct. The readings for the course provided various examples of this as well as showed other forms of discrimination in all aspects of life. We looked at history and how far back the idea of race as a social construct has been in place, but also how gender, sexuality, economic status, and many other aspects of life influence discrimination.

Advice for students:
To succeed in this course make sure you go to class. Do the assigned readings as well. I would also recommend going to the extra credit events not just for your grade, but because they provide more examples of what is taught in the course.
