Discuss International Student Migration and Social Stratification in China Case Study. Write a 2- to 3-page paper (500 to 825 words) in APA format in which you use sociological theories of social stratification to explain race relations domestically and internationally. Be sure to compare the social stratification system in the United States to that of at least two additional countries in your paper. Cite and use at least one additional outside source for this paper.
Your paper must address the following:
- Drawing upon one outside source, explain how the stratification system is different between the United States and at least one other country. Be sure to use concepts from your reading in your response.
- Based upon your understanding of the stratification system in the United States, examine why inequality impacts some racial groups (ethnic minorities, for example) more than others. For example, is it because of racism or some other form of discrimination? Explain.
- Provide and analyze one important example of the impact economic inequality has on one racial group in the United States. For example, how do the rates of crime and unemployment, levels of education, and amount of income differ for African Americans in comparison to the larger population?
- Finally, describe what you think are the implications of achieving a truly “color-blind” society in the United States. For example, how do we, as a society, achieve a careful balance in which we recognize and appreciate ethnic differences on one hand, but still have a unified American population?
