Always Do the Reading
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I absolutely loved this class. Professor Gonzalez is a rock star, I chose to take this class, Racial and Ethnic Politics, mainly because he was teaching it and I had so throughly enjoyed his 202 class. I consider myself a pretty open minded and aware person, but 217 gave me a perspective on race that I had never considered. I would recommend!
We covered so much information it's hard to even summarize it. We discussed the origins of race in America, read articles and chapters about segregation, the civil rights movement, the modern re-segregation of the school system, immigration and so much more. Among the reading for the class was Tah-Nesi Coats, Between the World and Me, which actually changed my life.

Keep up on the readings and come to class, it's easy to fall behind.
