PLEASE REVISE. THAN YOU
This group is the same as a subordinate group. A defining feature of this group is that its members have less control or power over their lives than do members of dominant groups. Minority Group
This describes the social structure between competing groups as defined by conflict or tension. An example would be the conflict that occurs between Haitians and United States citizens when Haitian refugees seek a new home in the United States. Conflict perspective
This is a group with distinct national origins or cultural patterns. For example, Norwegian Americans belong to this type of group. Ethnic group
Women are considered the social minority in the United States because they belong to this group, and are sometimes subject to prejudice and discrimination. Subordinate group
This is the study of social behavior. A professional in this field may study intergroup relations between African Americans and Asian Americans, for example. Sociology
This occurs when a person both believes and feels that his or her own racial group is superior to another racial group. Racism
The most common definition of this term is a social ranking by social wealth. An example would be a family whose income level categorizes them below the poverty line, versus a family whose income level categorizes them far above the poverty line. Class
This is when an oppressor uses race to determine who is and is not privileged. These determinations are made by assigning characteristics to races and dividing them into groups. At minimum, characteristics include physical or cultural traits. Social construction of race
This is a broad generalization about groups which does not account for individual differences. An example would be if a person were to generalize that all people from New York City are pushy. Stereotype
Among many others, Chinese Americans, African American, Native Americans and Caucasians are examples of this group. Members of such a group can be identified by obvious physical differences. Racial group
This occurs when a dominant group forces a minority group to live, work, or socialize separately. The high index of Blacks and Whites living separately in Detroit, Michigan is an example. Segregation
Another way of describing a minority group, this type of group comprises people of certain race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, disability. Members of such a group exhibit five distinct characteristics.
This occurs when a person, or the group to which that person belongs, assumes the characteristics of a dominant group. An example would be a Native American choosing to abandon his or her cultural norms in favor of United States norms. Assimilation
This group is associated with a faith other than that of the dominant group. For example, individuals who practice Buddhism in the United States belong to this type of group. Religious minority group.
This perspective maintains that groups in society may express their cultures without facing prejudice or hostility. In part, it can be seen in some of the larger United States cities. Pluralism
I REALLY NEED HELP IN REVISING THIS

Since I have no idea what "This group" is referring to, I don't know the specifics of your sentence.
Just as a couple of sentences, they read fine. No grammar or usage errors. There's a little wordiness at the beginning of the second sentence, and it could be combined with the first sentence.
You could write, "This subordinate group's defining features include its members' lesser control over their lives than that of members of dominant groups."
