Please answer the following questions: PLEASE BE GRAMMATICALLY CORRECT, AND DO NOT USE ANY OTHER OUTSIDE SOURCES. ONLY USE THE READINGS PROVIDED. PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE an INTRO NOR CONCLUSION.
How is group identity formed, and what are its consequences? Compare and contrast the ways that the authors explain how identity is created in Africa and the United States. Explain how this can be related to both the social identity theory and social categorization theory (based on the readings.) Which of the theories is most convincing? Discuss how competing theories (such as social pluralism or others that you may read-Gibson) might explain the same situation in different ways and to use examples from both Africa and the United States to support your argument.
Use VERY SPECIFIC examples ONLY from the course readings, write a 3 page essay responding to the above prompt.
