I’m studying and need help with a Psychology question to help me learn.
Post a total of 3 substantive responses over 2 separate days for full participation. This includes your initial post and 2 replies to other students.
This week we explore the concepts of ethnicity, race, and gender. All people residing in the United States are either Native Americans, immigrants, descendants of immigrants, descendants of slaves, or a combination of these. Looking closely at your own family’s stories can help you to understand immigration, ethnicity, and race in the United States better.
Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:
- What is your family’s path, over one or many generations, to becoming an American?
- Does it include Black (slaves or freemen) people and/or Native Americans? How so?
- How do current immigrants assimilate into American culture?
- Should more of an effort be made to assimilate? Why?
