EACH Discussion post needs to be a 150 word response. If references are used, cite! First 5 are INITIAL response posts, and number 6 is a response to a student. 
1) Do you believe capitalism breeds prejudice and discrimination? Why or why not? Is the level of prejudice and discrimination different in a socialist society? Explain with examples and comparison. Cite sources.
2)  Consider the choices of Native Americans who decide to stay on their tribe’s native land or reservation, and those who choose to relocate to a city. If you were presented with this decision, which would you choose and why?
3) How well do you think Native American organizations, like the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the National Congress of American Indians, and the National Indian Gaming Association, are helping Native Americans to advance? Explain your answer. If anything, what are organizations like these doing to mitigate tribal poverty and encourage prosperity?
4) Consider racial imbalances in education, the economy, family life, housing, criminal justice, health care and politics. Of these societal challenges facing modern people of color, which do you think are most difficult to overcome, and why? Suggest some ideas for solutions to such challenges. Respond to the ideas classmates suggest by stating whether you think their solutions are feasible, and why or why not.
5)  What differentiates the act of grouping people from the act of stereotyping? How can stereotyping affect group relations? Provide an example of a stereotype you find in your everyday life. Comment on the experiences of your classmates. Are the experiences the same or different from yours, and how?
6) The difference between the act of grouping and the act of stereotyping would be that when you group someone its acknowledging the similarities that they share, noticing that they all have blue eyes, they all gradated from the same college. grouping would be saying something like, ” they all play soccer, so lets call them the soccer group. it is not an assumption of similarities. grouping is recognizing the similarities and putting them together would be an assumption that everyone in a group has all the same personality and character traits, assuming they all share a negative idea. if i was to say ” all students from the Bumble Bee school district are thieves” that would be a stereotype, It is ok to create a group because they do all attend the school district, but it is an assumption to say they are all thieves. it cannot be proven and has no valid explanation behind it. I seem to come across the stereotype that all Black people are unable to speak proper english. I have had numerous people say to me, “oh, you talk like a white girl”, so i’ll ask, well what does a White person sound like. the most common response is ” you know, you talk proper”
