The main connection made across the classes (excluding history, which I am not a part of) was race and gender inequality. In perspectives and in literature, we¬†talked about feminism and how gender roles are an extremely unmoving standard in society. In the same classes, we discussed race as a basis for prejudice. Racism has quickly become a very prominent topic in the entire cluster, which should say something about how prevalent the idea has been in the country’s history.
