Is Charles Blow’s approach micro or macro? Does he discuss how reality is constructed through interaction? Does his approach instead highlight how the phenomenon contributes to social integration and stability, or rather how racial or gender inquality, for example, benefit some while hurting others, leading to conflict and instability?

After reading the Duck Dynasty article, respond to the 6 questions.

1. Draw three main conclusions from the article.

  • Do not just summarize the article. What are three conclusions you take away from the article? Enumerate them (e.g. First, Second and Third).

2. Explore  how the social phenomena discussed in the article may or may not  contribute to human suffering and or social disorganization

  • In  other words, does Blow believe that Robertson’s denial of racism and  discrimination leads to pain and suffering
  • and/or social  disorganization?

3. Identify which social perspective best fits the author’s approach in this article  (The Functional-Structural, Social Conflict, or Symbolic Interaction).

  • Choose  just one. Is Charles Blow’s approach micro or macro? Does he discuss  how reality is constructed through interaction? Does his approach  instead highlight how the phenomenon contributes to social integration  and stability, or rather how racial or gender inquality, for example, benefit some while hurting others, leading to conflict and instability?
  • 4. Describe  the ways in which the topic can be defined as a “personal trouble” or  “social issue” (consider the Sociological Imagination – this site may be helpful) Be sure to cite specific evidence from the article to support your position.
  • Go  to the site I reference, and then address whether what Robertson’s  denial of racism and discrimination is a quirk unique to Robertson and  his personal life story (i.e., a personal trouble) or if it represents a  larger social issue which is the result of historical/social forces.
  • 5. Describe two important elements of data presented on the chart in the article and briefly interpret each data element.
  • Refer  to the data provided in “The Southern Divide” chart.  Focus on two of  the poll items, and discuss the differences between what southern whites  and blacks say.
  • 6. Based  on your exploration on points 1 to 5, make three recommendations  including, but not limited to, a need for future research on this social  phenomenon, (b) the development of new laws or public policies to  address this issue or (c) relevant programs to assist individuals and  groups regarding the issue.
  • Come  up with suggestions you have for public policy, further research, or  education which might better enlighten people to historical/social  forces at work. Enumerate them (e.g., First, Second and Third).

In writing your six-paragraph essay, you should address point 1 in paragraph 1, point 2 in paragraph 2, and so on. Express your points clearly so that I do not have to search through paragraphs for you answers.
