Please don’t take any information from anywhere else, all the information needs to be provided from materials I uploaded. My professor is very strict and don’t give any points if the material doesn’t match. Below are the questions that need to be answered and attached are the materials.
Essay A should not exceed 8-10 sentences.
Collins (1993) asks: “How do race, class and gender function as parallel and interlocking systems that shape this basic relationship of domination and subordination?” (29) To address this prompt, please address the following:
First, according to Collins (1993) and Romero (2018), how does intersectionality allow us to address Collins’ question above?

Smedley and Smedley (2005:22) write:
From its inception, race was a folk idea, a culturally invented conception about human differences. It became an important mechanism for limiting and restricting access to privilege, power, and wealth. The ideology arose as a rationalization and justification for human slavery at a time when Western European societies were embracing philosophies promoting individual and human rights, liberty, democracy, justice, brotherhood, and equality. The idea of race distorts, exaggerates, and maximizes human differences: it is the most extreme form of difference that humans can assert about another human being or group, as one of its components is the belief that differences are permanent and cannot be overcome.
Drawing on the insight above, describe and explain the relationship between economic structure and racial hierarchy. Specifically, how is the economic system (e.g., capitalism) related to the creation, maintenance, and reification of the racial stratification system in the United States? An excellent essay will be able to engage at least 2 sources and be specific in addressing the history of racialization in this country.
Essay C should not exceed 6-8 sentences.
How does Thomas Sowell (1994) explain the socioeconomic difference between racial/ethnic groups?
