2. Compare and contrast two different political groups or organizations, such as the Occupy and Tea Party movements, or  

one of the Arab Spring uprisings. How do the groups differ in terms of leadership, membership, and activities? How do the  

group’s goals influence participants? Are any of them in-groups (and have they created out-groups)? Explain your answer.  

3. The concept of hate crimes has been linked to in-groups and out-groups. Can you think of an example where people  

have been excluded or tormented due to this kind of group dynamic?
