Instructions: The film that I choose is “Remember the Titans”. Within the six page paper I am expected to apply the material covered in class (Especially Bonilla-Silva’s 4 Frames of colorblind racism). As his/her critical thinking decision making objective, the student should decide whether the societal evidence he/she reviews in the paper :
a) demonstrates the typical colorblind pattern that Bonilla-Silva describes in the textbook; or
b) reveals a more progressive and/or minority pattern
c) Some combination of the above
d) Some other pattern not discussed in the textbook but worth exploring in future research.
The student may find that the quotes he/she analyzes deliberately challenge one of the 4 frames of colorblindness in some way, and he/she can note this in the paper as well. The paper should consider the implications of the analysis of colorblindness for the future of a multiracial society. In other words, how do the representations discovered in your analysis help and/or hinder a society’s progress toward inclusive multiracial democracy?
The books Required for this class is listed below:
1) Bonilla-Silva, E. 2010 Racism without Racists: Color-Blind Racism and Racial Inequality in Contemporary America. 3rd ed. Boulder, CO: Rowman and Littlefield. ISBN-13:9781442202184
2) Higganbotham, E. and Margaret L. Anderson. 2011. Race and Ethnicity in Society: The Changing Landscape. 3rd ed. Belmont Ca: Wadsworth. ISBN-13:9781111519537
The six page paper should quote and illustrate all 4 frames of colorblindness and analyze them accordingly.
The two sources I would like to use is the book on “Remember the Titans and the movie itself if possible.
