I’m working on a sociology discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
After watching the video, please answer the following questions:
What overt forms of inequality hinder Sumner’s students?
Now time to put on our sociological thinking caps! What covert forms of inequality exist for Sumner’s students? When answering this question, I would like you to reflect on Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of Cultural capital.
Think back to Sumner comparing her educational experience growing up versus the other children in her neighborhood.
The Worthy and Unworthy Poor Discussion
Discussion 1 The “Worthy” and ” Unworthy” Poor The recurrent push under President Reagan for distinguishing between the worthy and the unworthy and for the voluntary and private sector to take on more responsibility for
social welfare seems to reflect a turn back to the 1800s and the Charity Organization Societies.
Discussion 2 The Progression and Regression of Civil Rights The 1960s marked a period of civil rights that were expanded in the
The 1970s. However, in the late 1980s, these efforts seemed to take a
different direction, with a more conservative Supreme Court.

Do you think civil rights continue to be reversed or
expanded for certain groups? Support your claim with evidence from the scholarly or
research literature. Which groups may benefit from the current Supreme
Court, and which groups may suffer?
