America, the land of fresh beginnings and opportunity; the nation where many immigrants come in quest of all the things this country is lauded for, but what isn’t emphasized are the rigors immigrants undergo in order to build a life and seize said opportunities without documentation. Whether it’s limitations on life changing propositions, employment opportunities, or all in all, enduring prejudice. All these factors have a direct impact on undocumentated individuals that reside in the United States.
To begin, It is without a doubt or to be precise undeniable that all these factors have a great bearing on undocumented individuals that reside in America. Taking a look at “I’m a Dreamer and a Rhodes Scholar. Where Do I Belong?” By Jin Park, one can see the toils that Jin( an undocumented invdivual) undergoes, for he is evidently deprived of a life changing opportuntity that he solemnly earned due to his documentation status. Through a recollection Jin depicts, “ yet I resist citing my “intelligence” or “abilities’ ‘ to defend my presence here, because a human being need not be a Rhodes scholar to be treated with basic fairness and decency. A human being shouldn’t have to be a “genius” or “economically productive” to have access to equal opportunity.” This is a frequent consequence undocumented immigrants face, a consequence that isn’t emphazied as much as the “American dream”. To this day many immigrants like Jin Park are still deprived of opportunities in which they’ve earned, deprived and frowned upon all because of papers.
Systemic can be defined as relating to a system, especially as opposed to a particular part. I would be remiss if I said this unfortunate phenomenon wasn’t systemic because it is indeed something that is embedded within the American system. Thousands of immigrants are stripped of basic liberties because of their documentation status. The laws in which America is founded, much like the I-9 process instituted in the year of 1986, are responsible for the tribulations of unauthorized immigrants. Jin was only seven when he came to America, knowing nothing of where he originated, it is safe to say he is practically American, but wasn’t considered so by the government. In this day and age, scholarships are funded by the government which means without a green card, social security or citizenship you are not considered eligible. With that being said, many immigrants(undocumented) who strive and work for college opportunties and scholarships are prohbitted from seizing them because of the system that funds it.
I remember when I was graduating  high school. I didn’t apply, but was awarded a full scholarship to a college of my choice. Unfortunately, I couldn’t accept it because it was government funded and I was undocumented. I was heartbroken . Not because I was stripped away from a scholarship but because I worked hard, graduated valedictorian and my perseverance was acknowledged but one minor thing prevented me from going to school debt free. I now work two jobs to help my mother pay my tuition out of pocket.

Your final paper should be a 4-5 page paper on social inequality and the Covid-19 pandemic. Your paper must use the following article for reference: https://www.vox.com/2020/4/10/21207520/coronavirus-deaths-economy-layoffs-inequality-covid-pandemic 
INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Read the linked article.
2) Pick ONE element of social inequality discussed in the article and formulate a clear sociological argument. DO NOT attempt to discuss ALL the inequalities relative to the outbreak. You will not have the space to go into any depth. The point here is to identify ONE aspect of social inequality and analyze it deeply using course materials.
Please follow all instructions for the assignment as well all reading are attach .
3) Use a minimum of 4 class readings to organize and support your argument. You must use readings from at least TWO different sections. (So, for example, if your argument is about racial inequality, your four course readings cannot ALL be from the race section. You will need to find a reading from at least one other section).
4) Make sure to submit a works cited page in APA format. You must also provide appropriate in text citations for your work.
5) Submit your paper as a Word or PDF document. The submission link is in this “Final Exam” folder.

In this paper, you will rely on course materials and outside sources to apply a sociological perspective to illness through analyzing a pharmaceutical advertisement. Pharmaceutical advertisements are prevalent in the US media. Just flip open a magazine, turn on the television, or go online, and you will be exposed to pharmaceutical ads to treat conditions ranging from depression to premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) to social anxiety disorder attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to countless other disorders.
Find a recent advertisement (2015 or later) in a magazine for a condition that has been medicalized in recent years. In other words, do not look for advertisements aimed at treated diseases such as cancer, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease (CVD). Be sure to choose an ad that you can scan or send the link to. Feel free to use current commercials or pharmaceutical advertisements online (e.g., youtube videos). Please provide the source if you use an online version.
After finding which drug advertisement you want to use, apply a sociological framework to illustrate how this ad contributes to medicalization and the construction of illness for the targeted disorder. In an essay format, answer the following questions: (Please do NOT paste the questions into your essay.  The questions are meant to 1) help structure your paper, and 2) provide guidance on paper content.)
To start, what is the name of the drug being advertised and what disorder is it supposed to treat? What is the history of this disorder? Using course materials or outside sources, illustrate the medicalization of this disorder. When was this disorder medicalized? What factors were salient to the medicalization of this disorder? Using data from reliable sources (such as CDC), illustrate in detail trends in the disorder being targeted. Be sure to include trends over time as well as trends according to race/ethnicity, sex, age, and social class (education, income, occupation). Please do not paste in graphs from websites to take up space. Briefly describe the trends in text form.
Where did you find this advertisement? Who is the target audience for this media? Be sure to include demographic information on the readership for this publication. Using evidence based reasoning and available data on this disorder (from non‐industry groups, like CDC), explain why you think the advertised drug to treat a specific disorder is being targeted at a specific group.
What is the history of this drug? Has it been used to treat other disorders?
Describe the ad. What visual images are used? What words pop out on the page? Explain in detail how these words or images contribute to the construction of illness for the disorder and the message being conveyed to readers. What does the visual imagery of the ad tell you about illness experiences related to the disorder?
What does the advertisement tell you about who is being targeted for this advertisement? Be sure to incorporate how race/ethnicity, age, class, and gender are relevant to the illness construction being presented in the ad.
Provide a comprehensive analysis of how the social sources of illness are related to this disorder and the pharmaceutical therapy being advertised to treat this disorder.
Pharmaceutical treatments are rarely considered a panacea for a number of disorders and carry with them a number of side effects that can adversely affect a person’s health. With that in mind, what is not being communicated in the ad about other ways to treat this disorder? Are there social approaches to treating this disorder that are overlooked in the ad? Be sure to elaborate on other potential approaches for this disorder in detail.
Finally, provide a comprehensive conclusion to this essay that demonstrates the sociological perspective you have applied to the advertisement. Be sure to incorporate concepts including medicalization, stigma, social power, and social sources of illness throughout your essay. You must also cite sources you use for this essay.
