Power and the Gurung One of the dilemmas social scientists face is whether to sacrifice complexity for conceptual order and how much sacrifice must be made.

In Langston Hughes' poem, “I, Too,” he addresses the insult of segregation, inequality, and prejudice. There are many specific ways that America as a whole suffers from these three broad categories.
