Sociology final paper

Order Description

This is The Final essay for Sociology class.
THIS ESSAY SHOULD BE CONTAINED ALL COURSE READINGS I ATTATCHED(i address below) AND TWO FILMS.

* The major categories into which we sort humans — race, class, and gender — in themselves may not be harmful. However, where there are categories, there also seems

to be ranking, which leads to such things as racism, sexism, class-based discrimination, etc. This damaging tendency to rank is learned through interaction and

encouraged by the distorted picture of the world portrayed in mass media, such as television.

* Incorporate the films “La Haine” (You should find this film through the internet) and “Manufacturing Consent”
(a link for the film Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQhEBCWMe44
If this link doesn’t work, just do an online search for the film; it is linked in many places.), along with course lectures and readings on impression management,

class, race, gender, and media, into an elegant, well-organized, thesis-driven 7-8 page discussion of ALL OF the following topics:

1) How do we construct a socially stratified reality? Discuss the ways in which we construct our category-driven realities (you may wish to revisit and reference

earlier course materials – such as “Five Features of Reality” (1. Hugh Mehan and Houston Wood, “Five Features of Reality,” in Jodi O’Brien, The Production of Reality:

Essays and Readings on Social Interaction (5th Edition), Pine Forge Press: Thousand Oaks, CA, 2011.) and materials on Symbolic Interactionism – for this part).
2) Discuss how we engage in impression management to construct certain images for ourselves in terms of race, class, and gender.
3) How and why does discrimination arise, how is it perpetuated, and what are its consequences?
4) What solutions can you imagine? Describe them, and indicate how they might actually come about.

*I will attach a essay prompt as word file and all reading for additional files as well.
i find the link for one film but, another i can’t. So please find this film and wahtch carefully.

* The essay which you construct should be integrated around a THISIS!!!!! The thesis will be one of your own creation, but it must be one which addresses the above

topics. Concepts of impression management, class, race, and gender should be briefly, but clearly, defined.

*Your THESIS will need to address ALL PARTS OF THE READINGS I ATTACHED (DO NOT USE OUTSIDE SOURCES), such as 7 to 8 course readings + the two films listed, it should

ALL FIT TOGETHER as part of a broader argument about how discrimination happens. This essay prompt is constructed to push you to find your own way to fit together the

course material. I could ask you to do typical things like provide DEFINITIONS, explain THEORIES, and so on, but if you can make a comprehensive statement pulling from

multiple strands of the course, it will make much more sense to you, and you will leave with a longer-lasting and more powerful understanding.
