a sociologist must be able to analyze racial and ethnic differences in different national contexts.  Race and ethnicity are constructed differently in different places and at different times.  For example, in the U. S. race is defined in a way such that two children with the same biological parents cannot possibly be of different races. In contrast, some countries, such as the Dominican Republic, define race in a way that would allow for siblings ( born of the same parents) to be placed into different racial categories. In order to develop this skill, you will select a particular country and analyze the ethnic stratification and conflict, including evidence of prejudice and discrimination.  In addition to a description of the selected society and its ethnic groups, include an analysis of similarities and differences in the society’s ethnic stratification system as compared to the United States.  You may select one of the countries o the CIA World Factbook website for comparison to the United States in terms of the ethnic stratification system.  The following information should be included in your timeline.  Title, Describe the selected country’s society, focusing on ethnic groups, stratification, and conflict.  Provide examples of the ethnic problems in that society, including evidence of prejudice and discrimination, discuss what the experts say about ethnic problems (or ethnic harmony) in the selected country’s society, compare the selected country’s society  society in the United states, evaluate similarities and differences related to ethnic groups, stratification, and conflict, using specific examples gathered in the research.  Conclude with reflections and thoughts about ethnic groups and the societies in which we live.
