Another thing I enjoyed learning in this class was seeing the statistics of what kind of people are in this country. Americans for the most part understand that this country is filled with people of different race, origin, sexual orientation, and religion, yet it is fascinating to see the numbers. These numbers answer alot of questions that I have wondered such as: How many people in this country have hispanic origins and how has this affected the culture of this country? How many people in this country are below the poverty line and what is the cause of this? How many people in this country are religious and does the environment they grew up in have a large affect on their choices? What is the history of these different groups of people? These are all questions that have been answered and better understood through the course material. Some statistics can amaze you when you consider what is going on in this country that you may have not even been aware of. Some of the things learned can be a real eye-opener.
