Human Rights of American Minorities
Human Rights of American Minorities provides students with a holistic view of universal human rights as they apply to American social problems and the lives of minority populations in the United States. The anthology encourages readers to think critically about the identity, behavior, and reactions to modern events by minority and majority social groups.
Within the collection, students read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as written by the United Nations and selections that explore the role of identity in diversity, economic inequality, the impact of micro-aggressions on Latino/a communities, and the structural racism Native Americans and Alaskan natives endure. Additional readings address the roles sex, gender, sexuality, and age play in determining minority or majority status. The collection concludes with readings that examine stunted opportunity in America, the fundamentals of social policy, and whether claims of religious discrimination can be successful.
Moving beyond stratification theory to spotlight the everyday struggles of minorities in the United States, Human Rights of American Minorities is an excellent resource for courses in the social sciences, especially those that explore inequality and minority populations.
