The course readings for Module 2 discuss the effects of the Industrial Revolution, and how this event led to the recognition of the three subgroups: Northern and Western, Protestant Europeans, and Norway.

In an ever-going society of progression and acceptance of all, we strive to create inclusivity, opportunity, and an equal justice system void of bias. Some of the most common practices of institutional discrimination can be seen in harsher sentencing of crimes based on race and ethnicity, predatory lending practices from financial institutions, educational opportunities, and access to resources. Some historic landmark cases that presented as race discrimination are:

  • Korematsu v. United States (1944)
  • Brown v. Board of Education (1955)
  • Jones v. Mayer Co. (1968)
  • University of California Regents v. Bakke (1986)
  • Shuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action (2014)


Write a research paper that includes the following:

  1. Describe the lived experiences modern institutional discrimination for one of the three identified subgroups or any minority group.
  2. Explain how the above-mentioned experiences differ from “traditional” institutional discrimination of non-minority groups.
  3. Explain the role of affirmative action in combating both modern and traditional institutional discrimination.
  4. Finally, provide an example of what positive changes society is making post-industrial revolution to assist immigrants with institutional discrimination.
