Complete a paper analyzing a contemporary issue related to racism in American society
by exploring Institutional

Racism in housing/real estate.

By studying the works of
sociologists, anthropologists, historians, and legal scholars in order to present the position

that there is indeed institutional racism within housing/real estate. This must be fact-based with 1 primary source and 1 secondary source. I have added some sources used but feel free to use others.

Goal:

The
goal of this assignment is for you to present your position on one of these
contemporary issues within the context of our course. Meaning, you must clearly
state your opinion and then make a fact-based case to back up your position.

Essays will be based
primarily on the following questions:

?
Does your essay have a central argument?

?
How well organized is your paper? Does it revolve around one
central argument?

?
How interesting, persuasive, and sophisticated is the argument
and the analysis that leads to it?

?
Is your writing clear and concise?

Writing Tips:

Argument:
Your first paragraph must contain your essay?s central argument. You might
consider underlining this argument, so that it is crystal clear.

Clarity
and Organization: Once you?ve settled on a central argument, be sure that
you organize your paper around it and cut out any word, phrase, sentence,
or paragraph that doesn?t advance it.

Evidence:
In building the case for your argument, be sure to cite numerous, specific
examples. Please use parenthetic citations: (Smedley, 104). Please include
a bibliography.

Analysis:
Sophisticated, nuanced arguments are best. So do not ignore evidence that
doesn?t quite fit your thesis. Instead, try to tweak your thesis to
accommodate this conflicting evidence; or briefly mention this evidence
and then explain why it is perhaps an exception to the general rule or
argument you?re laying out.

Writing
tone and style: scholarly in tone. For example, do not use ?I? or
contractions such as ?don?t.? In terms of style, focus most intently on
being clear and concise; creativity is less important for this assignment.
