American Multicultural Politics

There is much talk about how the U.S. Census Bureau’s estimate that by 2020, white children will make up less than half of the nation's minors, and by 2044, all whites will make up less than half of the nation’s population might impact us as a country. From the drafting of the American Constitution through contemporary politics, race and ethnicity and the struggle for emancipation, inclusion and equality by different groups within society have shaped the debates over how we should govern ourselves. This course helps students understand the structure, function and impact that political institutions have on American life and politics through the analysis of race and ethnicity.
