Hate Groups

Hate Groups

After reviewing the hate groups’ information for your area on the “ Southern Poverty Law Center” website's map, write a one to two page paper. You are to choose one hate group within your area and analyze the group while using the following criteria:
Document the name of the group and include any known affiliations the local group may have with larger hate groups
Analyze the group’s views and decide what theory you would use to explain the group’s prejudicial outlooks (scapegoating, authoritarian personality, or exploitation theory). Include meaningful details to support your claim.
Describe what you can do about the groups operating in your area (be realistic and ‘I cannot do anything is unacceptable’) .
Please be sure to include the area you reviewed so I can look at it.
Remember that you may need sources beyond the Southern Poverty Law Center website and your book. All sources must be cited
All assignments should use APA style, be error-free (grammar and spelling count), have one-inch margins, and include a cover page and reference page (if necessary).
Within your paper include:
Real-world examples of the topic based on your research (for example, a personal commentary of the events from an individual’s account).
Summarize the events.
Discuss the impact of misperception, using specific examples of common misperceptions of the era.
Compare and contrast the past and present events, explaining in detail the similarities and differences.
Develop a plan that would have prevented these events from the perspective of an authority figure such as a politician, chief of police or other public official.
Explain why you chose this topic while identifying your personal values and beliefs regarding ethnic groups and minorities.
All assignments should use APA style, be error-free (grammar and spelling count), have one-inch margins, and include a cover page and reference page (if necessary).

Play, Games, and Sport.

Play, Games, and Sport.


This course examines distinctive cultural regions throughout North America and the lifeways of the peoples living there. Students will conduct fieldwork.
This course is ostensibly a study of vernacular experience and everyday life. It could be argued that if one were to divide “folklore” (either the discipline or that which the discipline studies) into two parts, on one side would be folk literature (as broadly understood, encompassing song, narrative, jokes, etc.), and on the other side would be folklife. One could understand the former as the domain of collectors, and the latter as the domain of ethnographers; the former is text, the latter context. These distinctions will prove to be false, but provide a good starting point for discussion. Through readings and short writing assignments based on observation and/or reflection, this course will explore various aspects of everyday experience.
Short assignment. The leisure and play activities of a group of a culture often simultaneously reaffirm and transgress patterns within the culture at times of non-play. Describe the sport and/or leisure activity of a particular group. What is its history within the group? Who participates directly? Who (if anyone) observes)? Are there elements within the play that seem to contravene prevailing attitudes? What does that activity suggest about the self-perception of the group?
