Allegany College of Maryland

Description

Response papers should be roughly 2 single-spaced pages in length (about a 1000 words), typed (double spaced), and should explicitly address the given theme, utilizing the readings and discussions from the course. The response papers give you an opportunity to reflect on the readings and the various topics of discussion, and to clarify your own thinking on the issues of race and ethnicity, as well as to provide me with feedback on the effectiveness of some of our course materials at helping to understand and digest these complicated ideas.


Theme:

Thinking about the everyday impact of race/ethnicity. Let's begin with the profound statement made by writer Zora Neale Hurston as she said "I am not tragically Black!' Think about the ways the ideas of race and ethnicity have constructed you and how the world sees you. Confront these ideas! In the way similar to Leslie Silko's confrontation of the US border patrol. Demand that society live up to aspirational notions of justice and fairness (recall the discussion of Angela Davis and her critique of the prison-industrial complex), and consider the ways that those who would let their presumptions about race/ethnicity guide their actions, can be constrained. Take some time to consider the everyday impact of racial and/or ethnic constructions on your life.

Race as Lived Experience

The modern society is one of the most integrated when it comes to race and ethnicity.
There are, however, great challenges facing people of different backgrounds living in areas
where there is a great differentiation, especially when it comes to race. Though the world has
come a long way in fighting racially-based fights among societies (Krishnamurthy 2013), there is
still a long way to go. This is as the same is still experienced across all social institutions, even as
governments and other members of society seek to have the same completely eradicated from the
face of society.
It is not that racism is one thing that people who are practicing it find comfort in
whenever they do the same. There is a need to acknowledge some of the key drivers of racism
and how the same is transferred from one generation to the other. This is the same is a historic
social challenge that has been in existence for centuries, and there is still a long way to go before
the same is completely eradicated. These drivers are not hidden and could easily be read from the
interactions that take place between people of different races...
