Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to apply the sociological imagination and key course concepts to the assigned video (Race). You will choose your own sociological topic and apply it to Race. This will require a well-articulated thesis statement with ample evidence to support your thesis in the form of in-text citations and examples from Race.

For example, “18 minutes, 20 seconds: gender inequality is depicted when a woman has a job interview for a soccer coach and the interviewee laughs at her and dismisses her before asking all questions on the list.” Continue reading
