There are many studies that reveal that blacks generally mistrust the healthcare system, receive a lower quality of care, and use fewer medical services in general than whites (Dayer-Berenson, 2014).

Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to apply the sociological imagination and key course concepts to the assigned video (Race). You will choose your own sociological topic and apply it to Race.
