1. Answer question 2 from Lind’s Race/Gender/Media book ON PAGE 44#
2. In our Omi & Winant reading for this week, they use the Phipp’s case to illustrate the difficulty of defining race and assigning individuals or groups to racial categories. Omi & Winant say the following about race:
racial legacies of the past continue to shape our present
not a problem for science that can be disavowed as archaic
not a problem for US society that can be legislated away as had hoped with the civil rights legislation of the 1960s
Rather, a fundamental means by which US society is institutionally structured and understood
racial identification is both a choice and not a choice
Ulimately, Omi and Winant argue that race is a matter of skin color and, therefore, a dimension of human representation. So how does this representation take form through racial formation and racial projects? For your assignment, how is the n word (for those of us who are not from the US the n-word is a stand-in for nigger) an example of the socio-historical process of racial formation and a racial project. Please use the following questions to help you think through a response: What was this word created for? How was it inhabited? How was it transformed? How was it destroyed or has it been? How does the word offer a representation/explanation of racial dynamics?
