This past week we focused on race and racism. These are very difficult
subjects, and the topics of race and racism are multi-layered.

- In class on Friday, I showed a slide that said, “You cannot be racist
against white people.” Do you agree or disagree with that statement?
Please provide specific reasons for whatever position you take on this
matter. Be sure to integrate course readings into your answer.
- On Wednesday during class, I administered a racial privilege quiz.
The point of the quiz was to identify people with racial advantage and
disadvantage. This quiz was like a diagnostic. It was meant to determine
if, in your everyday life, you have signs and symptoms of racial
advantage or disadvantage. What score did you receive on the quiz? Do
you think that score accurately represents the forms of racial advantage
and/or disadvantage you experience in your daily life? Why or why not?
(Note: For this essay option, you do not have to integrate course
readings, unless you believe it is necessary).
- From our course readings for this week, both Blumer and Bonilla-Silva
claim that racism is not just about “ideology” or individual feelings.
Citing from each of the readings, respond to the following: How do this
week’s readings challenge “commonsense” or popular ideas about racism?
