Discussion Forum for Chapter 5: Why don’t people just get along?

Why don’t people just get along?

For this discussion, students will identify and discuss which early majority-minority interaction patterns are still prevalent today.

In order to prepare for this discussion, you must first complete the following readings.

  • Read Chapter 5- North and West European Americans.
  • Review the relevant sections of Chapter 2, and Chapter 4, that address relation between majority and minority groups.


After you have completed your readings, select only ONE of the following questions, and post your response. Choose 1, 2, 3, or 4.

  1. What current day dominant and minority response patterns occurred during the colonial period?
  2. What aspects of the Irish, Dutch or German experience can be applied to current immigrant groups? Select one of these groups and compare them to a specific group today (your choice).
  3. Why didn’t all immigrants desire to become fully participating citizens in the country to which they moved? In your opinion, does this still apply today?
  4. How did immigrants who were seeking religious freedom come to the New World with their own stereotyped beliefs, and how did this impact their relationship with other immigrants?
