For this assignment, consider the racial and ethnic categories used in the 2020

For this assignment, consider the racial and ethnic categories used in the 2020 Census with the four racial, ethnic, and gender categories used in the 1790 Census: Free white males, free white females, all other free persons, slaves (Pew Research Center, 2015). Analyze the concepts of race, ethnicity, and gender as social constructs, just as sociologists do, by addressing the following:
1. Explain how you might have been categorized by the 1790 Census and how you would have been categorized by the 2020 Census.
2. Compare and contrast the two potential categorizations and explain how this exercise shows that the concepts of race, ethnicity, and even gender change over time. Most importantly, explain how this exercise shows that the concepts of race, ethnicity, and gender are social constructs.
3. Determine and describe what ethnic, racial, and/or gender categories, if any, would be best, in your view, for the 2030 Census, to most accurately show the diversity of the U.S. population and to promote social justice. What categories would be best to reveal the segments of the U. S. population most vulnerable to racial, ethnic, and/or gender inequalities or discrimination? What categories could be listed in the 2030 Census that might best educate the U. S. population on differences between race and ethnicity, and promote social justice? Explain your decisions
Include headings for each of the three main sections of the paper:
– What the Census Might Have Called Me
– Social Constructs
– Better Future Census Categories
Each of the three main sections of your paper must contain scholarly support in the form of quotes or paraphrases with respective citations from assigned reading (the textbook/lesson) and the outside scholarly source that you identify on your own.

Today, we started thinking about the future and its attending beliefs with the disability together. Chapter 4: A Future for Whom in Alison Kafer’s work illustrates the underlying assumption of super crip. Watch Stella Young’s tedtalk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8K9Gg164Bsw. Answer the following questions.
I WILL ATTACH THE CHAPTER, PLEASE READ AT LEAST 5 PAGES TO RESPOND TO THE QUESTION, I WILL ALSO GIVE THE SLIDES USED IN CLASS, USE BOTH WHEN ANSWERING BOTH QUESTION. NUMBER THE QUESTIONS
1. According to Stella Young, Disability people have long been used for inspiration porn. And she critiques it as an objectification. First, What does she mean by “inspiration porn”? Second, how would you explain objectification? And finally, why is it problematic?
2. “The only disability in life is bad attitude.” Such slogan is not simply BS according to Stella. Extending Stella’s argument, such ethos make not only disabled people silence about social disablement but also regulate or mange the affects or attitudes of non-disabled people. In relation to capitalist exploitation and its attendant ideology of the ableism, in what ways does such slogans and the billboard signs brought by Alison Kafer’s work shape non-disabled people’s minds?

3. Create a Pie Chart that shows the gender distribution of your community in percent.
4. Bar Graph showing the leading causes of death in your community in absolute numbers.
5. Create a column chart and table that shows the educational attainment percentage of those in your community over 25.
6. Table showing the median income by: households; families; married couple families; nonfamily.

read chapters #1 & #2 in “Wild Solutions.” You should then write a summary of the ​thesis and main points​ (only) in each chapter. Write the summary for each chapter separately. (Note: do not write a content summary. Do not write a book report. This is primarily a ​reading​ assignment that helps you learn how to read for a text’s argument.)
When you have written each summary, prepare a reference listing for the text, just as you would write it for an APA-style reference page. (Look in “Everyday Writer” for an example.) Be sure to cite your summary carefully using APA-style.
Follow these guidelines:
●Summaries focus on the “big picture” in the text, so you must summarize the thesis and all of the main points.
●Summaries always condense information.
●Summaries always restate the meaning of the text in your own words (no quotations).
●You should not borrow the author’s exact words.
●You should not borrow the author’s original sentence structure.
●You should not change the the author’s original meaning in any way.
How to write a summary using APA-style citation
●When you start a summary, you should use a signal phrase or a signal verb.
●Everything in your summary should make it clear you are referring to the author(s).
●If you start another paragraph for your summary, then start the paragraph again by using a signal phrase or a signal verb, just like you did for paragraph #1.
●Use ​past tense​ or ​present perfect tense​ for signal verbs, except when you discuss the results of an experiment.

hese short exercises provide an opportunity to develop the sociological imagination. Format: papers should be typed, double-spaced, normal margins, and 11 or 12 pt font. How long should my paper be? The length will vary. I envision most exercises being approximately two to three double-spaced pages, but this will depend on the particular topic, and your writing style. (Longer does not necessarily mean better). Better entries will reflect more sophisticated analysis and incorporation of relevant course reading.Practicing the Perspective – Find a newspaper, magazine or online article that uses some kind of data related to social science. *Note: I am NOT asking you to evaluate a research article from a scholarly journal. **Another note: when I say related to social science, I mean data about people and the social world. In other words, an article about whether sugar causes heart disease would not be a good article to choose for this assignment. An article about voting patterns, or an article about how COVID disruptions have re-shaped child-care and employment for women and men, would be better choices. (These are just examples!) *** Another note: what do I mean by “data”? Data can be quantitative or qualitative. Some articles may refer to survey data, or poll data. Some articles may use interview data, or content analysis. First, summarize the article and the kind(s) of data the author uses. Next, evaluate the author’s use of data and methods. Here are some possibilities to consider:Is the data valid and/or reliable? Why or why not? If not, what improvements would you suggest? Is the author using correlations or causal claims? If so, are they interpreted accurately, according to your best judgement?Is there any evidence of possible bias?**I suggest referring to the Best reading from the Methods module, especially pages 57-58, for additional questions to consider.**Finally, discuss whether you think the writer of the article is employing a sociological imagination. ** This part of your paper should draw on the Berger and Mills readings.** Attach a screenshot of the article and a URL to your exercise.

Read Pp 3-68 of the textbook (Bratton and Denham, 2019)and write an essay that situates the Canons in their social context. First, briefly describe the major changes that took place between 1776 and 1914 and then explain how these changes have influenced the writing of the sociological canons. Pay particular attention to the work of Karl Marx, Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, W.E.B. Du Bois and feminists. Do you think their social context influenced their writings? Why?

For this Argument Paper you need to write a 1500-word paper (about five and a half double-spaced pages). The first line of your paper should state an argument that the reader can either agree or disagree with. I expect and require that your first sentence of your paper begins “I argue that…”. The rest of your paper should be used to both demonstrate your mastery/understanding of the assigned material, and persuade the reader of your argument.
You are encouraged to address the following questions as related to yourself, and potentially others, in a way that reflects your lived experience:
Several of the reading and associated presentations discuss how society has changed over time (e.g. Marx, Weber, Durkheim, Tonnies, Simmel, and Sahlins). Discuss these various arguments and how you feel about that theorized changes. To what degree do you feel these changes are positive or negative? Which of these theories seem to reflect changes you see in our society, and which seem misguide or inaccurate?
There are various readings and associated presentations that are critical of capitalism (e.g. Marx and Sahlins), and others that are pro-capitalist (Davis & Moore and Rand). Discuss these various theories and provide your informed judgment of this debate.
The best papers will critically engage the relevant ideas presented on this topic. While relating to these questions on a personal level is encouraged, I also want to see you weave in a discussion of the readings that reflects your close reading of the assigned material and thoughtful reflection of the ideas presented in class.
