Choose an ethnic/racial minority in the United States (Asian, Black, Hispanic, Chinese, etc.) and tell us about their history in the United States and how that has shaped the cultural and racial patterns present today in the group.

Which theory (conflict, symbolic, structural) best lines up with the ethnic/racial minority that you have chosen? Why? (15pts)
Be specific and help your fellow classmates understand the history and story behind the racial/ethnic group that you have chosen. Ask questions and share your own personal thoughts on the issues of inequality facing the group you’ve chosen.
