that your paper is around 3 pages, double-spaced, with a heading (your
name, course info, etc.) and a creative title. Remember that you must
utilize ideas and concepts from the textbook, class lectures and
discussions to illustrate your point, so the prompt that you choose to

lectures, discussions, and/or activities. Lastly, factors such

Below are the three prompts that you may choose (one) to write about:

1) The Uniform Crime Report (UCR). Chapter 7
(Deviance, Crime, and Social Control) describes several ways in which
the Uniform Crime Report may present an inaccurate picture of the
demographics of crime. Describe the sources of bias that lead to these
inaccuracies. Are these biases better explained by conflict theory or
functionalism? Justify your answer. Be sure to also consult the
Uniform Crime Report (UCR) website, as well as the National Crime
Victimization Report (NCVR) website during this process.
consider how this connects to Robert Merton’s idea that labeling can
bring about self-fulfilling prophecies; that inaccurate beliefs, if
repeated loudly and frequently enough, can become true.


2) Social Status and Cultural Capital. According to
Max Weber, the traditional source of wealth–owning the means of
production–isn’t the only factor in determining social status (Chapter
9: Social Stratification in the U.S.). How does Weber conceptualize
power and prestige? Why does he argue that power and prestige, in
addition to material wealth, are important factors in determining a
person’s social status? Then, consider that half of all children grow up
to have the same socioeconomic class as their parents. Discuss the ways
in which Pierre Bourdieu’s concept of cultural capital influences this
phenomenon, and see this video for a depiction of how this works: to an external site.


3) Implicit Attitudes on Race and Ethnicity. Go to to an external site.,
read the “Preliminary Information” box, and once you’ve clicked on “I
wish to proceed,” please take the “Race IAT.” What do you think this IAT
is trying to measure? Share your results if you are willing. Otherwise,
please be sure to share your reactions to your results. Be sure to also
synthesize the following into your paper: How do sociologists define
race and ethnicity? Describe the differences between racism, prejudice,
and discrimination, and highlight the difference between individual and
institutional types of discrimination. Lastly, dicsuss the meaning of
minority groups, and discuss how assimilation has worked in the United
States. Be sure to mention the idea of racial passing and describe why
someone would try to pass (Chapter 11: Race and Ethnicity).
