Part II: Essay. Please Answer the following question in 5-6 pages. Please feel free to write more if necessary but no more than 2 pages over.
1. Some Americans and some high-ranking officials believe and have stated that ‘Americans are not racist’ and that ‘America is not a Racist Country’. Suppose you had to go before a Presidential Committee to speak to the “Racial Task Force” that has been created to rectify the “race problem” that White Supremacy has caused in America and worldwide. I would like to present the evidence you have learned thus far. In order to do this please use Chapters 2 and 3 in Tactic Racism (Chapter 2, “Fractured Reflections” of High-Status Black Men’s Presentations of Self: Non-Recognition of Identity as a Tacit Form of Institutional Racism to help you make your case and Chapter 3, Clashing Conceptions of Honesty: Black American “Honesty” in the White Workplace) to construct your arguments. I would like you to use at least 2 empirical examples that’s happening right now to help illustrate why Racism and White Supremacy persists in the United States. What evidence do you have based on the films that we have watched thus far to support or refute these beliefs. I want you to use two films to help you compose your speech. Also, use Chapters 1, 3 and 6 in your Fitzgerald text (Ch. 1: Taking Account of Race, Racism, and Privilege, Ch. 3: Science and the Sociology of Race Ch. 6: Race Relations in Flux: From Civil Rights to Black Lives Matter) to help strengthen the case that you are making. How can Chapter 6 be related to other groups of color fighting for social and racial justice in the United States and globally. Lastly, make your final arguments to convince the Racial Task Force team that there is a structural problem.
