Race and ethnicity are complex issues that shape our perceptions, beliefs, interactions, and life chances. In this course, we will begin by discussing what many scholars refer to as the biological myth of race, how racial categories emerged, and their durability in American life. In particular, we will focus on understanding patterns of economic and social progress for different ethnic and racial groups, and the social structures and processes that reinforce inequality. Through articles, books, and television/movies, we will explore not only our assumptions about what we think race means, but also the ways in which people form and experience racial identities, the impact of race on life chances, and the state of current race relations in the United States.
