Introduce the topic. What form of discrimination are you discussing? Where does it occur? Who is affected? How serious of an issue is this in the society in which you live? Include general information about the issue and also provide specific examples. Examples can be from your own experience and/or from research material.
As part of introducing your issue, it is required that you apply one or more of the perspectives (functionalism, interactionism, or conflict theory) to help explain why this type of discrimination occurs. (See page 294 and 325 in your textbook for information on applying the perspectives to these topics.)
Part C: Discuss solutions. What are some things that are currently being done to address this form of discrimination? If you were a community organizer tasked with creating a program to address this form of discrimination, what type of program would you create? What role can an individual take to help fight against this type of discrimination and promote equal treatment in his or her community?
