Essay (June 8)

Students will choose a film from the pre-approved list provided in the module (or another title with instructor approval) and will be expected to apply the material covered in class (especially Bonilla-Silva’s 4 frames of colorblind racism) to their everyday social world. Film Selection and 

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; or (c) some combination of the above; or (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. Each 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 paper should present quotes that illustrate all 4 frames of colorblindness and analyze them accordingly. The student’s submission will be graded using the UE SLO rubric. 
[NOTE: Regardless of the film chosen, students should write a minimum of 6 pages total as part of their paper.]
