  American Sociological Association - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Would 'race' disappear if the United States officially stopped measuring it?
At its press conference today, the American Sociological Association (ASA), a scholarly organization of 13,000 academic and research sociologists, asserts in an official statement that it is imperative to support the continued collection and scholarly analysis of data on racial taxonomies.
The ASA statement explains how race has been a sorting mechanism for friendship, mating, and marriage; a basis for the distribution of social privileges and resources; and a reason to organize social movements to preserve or challenge the status quo.
ASA also goes on record as opposing the elimination of data collection on race, because sociological studies show that this practice does not eliminate its use in daily life, both informally by individuals and formally within social and economic institutions.

 American Sociological Association issues a statement on Proposition 54
"Sociological research on 'race' provides evidence in the current scientific and civic debate about the consequences of the existing categorizations; allows scholars to document how race shapes social ranking, access to resources, and life experiences; and advances understanding of this important dimension of social life, which in turn advances social justice," said Hillsman.
Sociological research has found that individuals and social institutions evaluate, rank, and ascribe behaviors to individuals on the basis of presumed race.

 Save Sociology - Sociology as an Academic Discipline - www.savesociology.org
The American Sociological Association (ASA), the nation's largest professional group of sociologists, has shown a staggering lack of concern for the victims of the tsunami that recently devastated the lives of millions of people across multiple societies in the Far East.
Although the Association is devoted to the analysis of important social issues, neither the ASA Council nor the Executive Office made a single public effort to show concern for the tsunami tragedy or contribute to the victim relief efforts.
Instead, the ASA neglects the victims of humanitarian disasters to restrict itself to politically charged matters, most recently in the form of public statements condemning the war in Iraq and the proposed constitutional amendment on marriage.
