- Compare and contrast “assimilation” and “internal colonialism” as explanations for how groups have become part of the United States. Pick two groups (e.g. African Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, Chicanos, Central Americans, Armenian Americans, etc.) . Apply these paradigms "assimilation" and "internal colonialism" to the two groups you've picked to explain how they have become (or not become) part of the United States. Find a current event (something that happened between March 1st, 2018 ~ March 15th, 2019) that demonstrates your main points. Explain how "pan-ethnicity" figures into either assimilation of the group you selected or the internal colonial experience of the group you chose. Are some groups seen and treated as "perpetual foreigners?" How so? If not, why not? Discuss this in the contexts of "assimilation" and "internal colonialism."
