Explain why do we have inequality in the United States?

Reading Dr. S. Joseph Levine’s Guide to Writing and Presenting is helpful and relevant.

http://www.learnerassociates.net/dissthes/ Also, please read the Patten text: Part B, Topic 10 from Patten, Mildred L. (2010). Proposing Empirical Research: A Guide to the Fundamentals (4th ed.). Glendale, CA: Pyrczak.

ISBN 1-884585-89-2 This will help you write a 7 page literature review for the research proposal.

The literature review should be well organized and does not just present a summary of related research, but an extremely detailed evaluation of this research in terms of the methodologies used and the proposed research question.

There should be at least one or two clearly recognizable theories related to the research topic, and it is explained extremely well.

Topic Intro: In the degree I chose, I will study issues related to the development of individuals, specifically children and families in social and cultural contexts. The classes I will take will be in human development, and personal growth in human relationships, marriage and family relationships and family ethnic and cultural diversity. I chose the degree program in Family and Human Development to gain an understanding of the impact of ethnicity, culture, gender and professional life on individual development and family interaction patterns. I really think about the development of individuals and families as they relate to their diverse social worlds.

My research project focus will be on social inequality and the mechanisms behind social inequality that are heavily impacting persons of color in the United States. The discussion will be based on the concept of social inequality in terms of the effects of status, inequality based on differences in esteem and respect, alongside those based on resources and power. Furthermore, focus will be directed on how wealth, race, class, conflict and inequality impact families and overall human development. The research will in end focus on providing a summary on how the aforementioned elements that lead to social inequality affect life changes. Lastly, solutions will be given on how overarching inequality in the United States can be reduced and how equality can become a reality.

Why do we have inequality in the United States? Most importantly, how can we get rid of it so we can have equality? Where did inequality come from? Why does it exist? Why does it continue? Do we justify inequality? Why? Can we eliminate inequality? How? Most importantly, can we make a society in which people are equal? How?

Using a sociological approach will give the methodological and theoretical tools to begin to answer the questions relating to the research topic.
