Myth #2: Affirmative action has not succeeded in increasing female and minority representation.

Several studies have documented important gains in racial and gender equality as a direct result of affirmative action (see Murrell & Jones, this issue, for an overview).

Louis Wirth defined this term as people who are singled out for unequal treatment and who regard themselves as objects of collective discrimination.-They tend to marry within their own group.-Not necessarily a numerical minority.

A group becomes a minority: 1. through the expansion of political boundaries because it allows for other groups with different cultures to join and discriminate. This book explores some of the most glaring misunderstandings about the U.S.

As a sociologist, he was interested in the origins of class divisions in African American society. Newer research indicates that there were no distinct classes among enslaved African Americans.

Most slaves who worked in houses were women. The success of affirmative action is evident with gender, but, as is also clear, that is the case primarily with white women.
