sociological reasons why discrimination occur in American society

Write an essay (750-1,000 words) describing the sociological reasons that gender, race, and age discrimination occur in American society. Explain whether you think these forces will diminish or become more prevalent in the near future.

 

Utilize the GCU Library to locate three to six peer-reviewed sources in support of your content, in APA.

 

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the GCU Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

 

You are required to submit this assignment to Turnitin. Please refer to the directions in the Student Success Center.

 

Assignment 2:

 

Create a table that lists a variety of crime types. Your table should include a minimum of four types of crimes (four rows), two violent crimes, and two economic crimes.

 

For each type of crime you list include the following in separate columns:

1.      An explanation for the cause of the crime.

2.      The sociological theory that best fits what you have explained as the cause of that type of crime.

In addition, separate from your table, write a paper of about 500 words, proposing possible social solutions for each type of crime.

 

The table should show the type of crime, its cause, and the appropriate sociological theory to explain that type of crime.

 

The paper (synopsis) is the final step and proposes social solutions for each type of crime. If, for example, one type of crime is property crime, in which someone’s property is taken or destroyed, you might think that the root cause is poverty and that social process theory explains this cause.

 

In your proposal, you might describe an anti-poverty program that would minimize poverty in this country and thus reduce this type of crime.

 

Use the textbook, assigned readings, the GCU Library, and any other reputable outside sources to complete the assignment. The Statistical Abstract of the U.S. Census Bureau will be very helpful. This source can be found at the U.S. Census Bureau’s website.

 

While GCU style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected and in-text citations and references should be presented using the GCU documentation guidelines, which can be found in the GCU Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
