Hate America Sociology Exam

Happily, this was not at Marquette, but it probably could have been.

An example from “an introductory sociology class found lying in a room at a public college in the east.” Obviously, the identification has to be vague, due to the likelihood of retaliation. The provenance is clear, however.
Question: How does the United States “steal” the resources of other (third world) countries?

Answer: We steal through exploitation. Our multinationals are aware that indigenous people in developing nations have been coaxed off their plots and forced into slums. Because it is lucrative, our multinationals offer them extremely low wage labor that cannot be turned down.

Question: Why is the U.S. on shaky moral ground when it comes to preventing illegal immigration?

Answer: Some say that it is wrong of the United States to prevent illegal immigration because the same people we are denying entry to, we have exploited for the purpose of keeping the American wheel spinning.

Question: Why is it necessary to examine the theory of cumulative advantage when it comes to affirmative action?

Answer: Because it is unfair to discredit the many members of minority groups that have been offered more life chances through the program.

Question: What is the interactionist approach to gender?

Answer: The majority of multi-gender encounters are male-dominated. for example, while involved in conversation, the male is much more likely to interrupt. Most likely because the male believes the female’s expressed thoughts are inferior to his own.

Question: Please briefly explain the matrix of domination.

Answer: the belief that domination has more than one dimension. For example, Males are dominant over females, whites over blacks, and affluent over impoverished.
The exam received a grade of 100%.
