The Individual Downplayed Existence of Racism in America Discussion

Question Description

I’m working on a sociology discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

2.5 Race, Ethnicity, and Why It Matters (DISCUSSION) 

In 4 paragraphs, answer the following questions.

Have you ever heard anyone (maybe even you) dismiss the existence of racism by using one of the five fallacies? If so, how did the conversation go? What were they discussing, and how did the conversation end? 

Analyze the Tim Wise Colorblind Lecture. What are his three beliefs (on racism) that keep society from progressing? Do you agree? Why or why not? Why do you believe Americans love to memorize only some parts of the past? 

Also, do a brief review of the White Like Me documentary. Did it expand you understanding of race and power in the United States? If so, how? If not, what are some points Tim Wise failed to recognize?
