Please note that this is just a preview of a school assignment posted on our website by one of our clients. If you need assistance with this question too, please click on the Submit Your Instructions at the bottom of the page to get started.

The docudrama “The Killing Floor”, tells the story of the fateful encounter that took place among threedistinct sociopolitical groups in the United States in the first two decades of the 20th century, 1900-1920.
Those three groups were 1. the “new immigrants” from southern and eastern Europe; 2. the descendants of the “old immigrants” (especially the owners of the “means of production” (the big businesses) in industry, the controllers of real estate, and residents of long-established White neighborhoods) and 3. the Southern Black migrant population (along with earlier, urbanized Blacks already living in the North).
In your essay, you must use, and correctly cite: A. lecture and power point, B. chapters 2, 3 and 4 of Fusfeld’s text, C. the docudrama “The Killing Floor,” D. and the following on-line terms as defined in class: power, politics, power conflict paradigm, political socialization, ethnic enclave and ghetto.
Describe and analyze the series of changes that occurred between 1900 and 1920, whereby: 1a. European immigrant working class neighborhoods in many American cities changed from ethnic enclaves, to “White” communities and Black working class neighborhoods changed into ghettoes, with both neighborhoods in opposition to each other.
1b. Explain why and how the Black ghetto came into existence, and who was instrumental in this process.
1c. What was the role of the “Red Summer of 1919” in this process of ghetto formation?
2. How did the following two groups come to be politically socialized differently from each other? a. European immigrants, and b. Black migrants
Important Points:
**The key to successfully carrying out your discussion is: you must use the terms power, politics, power conflict paradigm, ethnic enclaves, ghetto and political socialization to analyze, not merely to describe events. By this I mean you must avoid simply repeating the definition of terms; instead you must fully utilize the terms to analyze issues in such a way that I can tell you understand what they mean in relationship to the essay topic . Make sure you describe the various groups in terms of socio-political class and/or ethnicity with depth. Avoid simplistic terms such as “Whites” and “Blacks” ! For example, use Europeans immigrants, descendants of old immigrants, rural Blacks, Poles, Slavs, Blacks with military experience, new immigrants, Irish gangs, realtors, etc. in analytical ways.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
