Afrsty 101 Introduction to Africana Studies
Please read the attached article: I was Racially Profiled in my Driveway**; then in a well-constructed essay titled: “Class and Race Barriers in America: Can we Overcome?” examine this issue within the context of everything you have studied in the class. Through the reading materials, lecture notes, discussions, film documentaries used in this class, analyze the topic and make “sense” of it? In organizing your thoughts, try keep in mind the following questions. Your essay should try to weave the various issues that these questions elicit, NOT A RESPONSE TO EACH QUESTION. You can paraphrase the question as you develop the arguments and analysis for your paper
1. What is the nature of racism and class oppression in America?
2. Is race a barrier to class mobility in America?
3. How is racial oppression related to the economic exploitation of African-Americans through the different eras (slavery, civil rights and modern)?
4. Should the writer in the article prepare his children for the realities of race and class discrimination?
5. Is there a police culture of ethnic profiling within the police forces of America; and how much of this is a product of America’s past race history or contemporary race relations?
6. Should municipalities train their police officers in racial profiling and racial sensitivity? If so, why and how? If not, why not?
7. What other practical steps should municipalities take to curtail racial profiling?
8. Does high class status lessen the chances of being racially profiled? Please explain.
9. Is it true that no matter your level of education or accomplishments, at the end of the day the first thing the public sees is a black person?
10. Is a person of African descent, although affluent, still a suspicious person despite his accomplishments? Please explain.
While there is no right or wrong answer to any these questions, your essay will be evaluated using universal intellectual standards of clarity, accuracy, precision, relevance, depth, breadth, logic to frame your conceptual framework; and your ability to articulate clear arguments (points of view), analysis that are supported by facts and information.
