Hello, My name is Kimberly Gonzalez and this question has nothing to do with race, or could, depending on my case study. I have never done a case study before and I would like to get a professionals point of view on the best way to set up a case study. Can you please help me. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you. :-)

Hi Kimberly,

In psychology, a through-going case study involves an in-depth analysis of a single person. There must be some theme to investigate, for example, some psychological disorder. Let me know what is your theme and perhaps I can help.

I think racism should not be kept in mind. Otherwise it would be the biased result. one should be make his self clear in mind about the person as he is. Not about the race to which he belongs to.

I believe that race is overcompensated by those that wish to remain separate, the world has become too complicated to focus on something that for the most part have very little merit. For example, there are too many ethnic groups that are joining and creating children that now bare the multicultural makeup of different nationalities. Therefore there is very little room for that discussion, unless you are a deliberate racist and would like to remain in the stone ages. As for me, I am the product of a biracial marriage, my mother being European American and my father being African American. Being born in 1962, left only one classification. My birth certificate reflects that I am black. Not African American, but black. Because in 1962, the racial barriers were clear. However, today those classification are more complicated and diverse. Hence, the race card is played out.
