Film Analysis: White People and White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack
Hi this paper is about analyzing
“White People” and “White Privilege”
Read “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” and watch White People | Official Full Documentary | MTV (44 min). Write an essay 500-750 words in length that engages the following questions:
Please answer the following On “White Privilege”
1) Why does McIntosh start her essay by saying "I was taught to see racism only in individual acts of meanness, not in invisible systems conferring dominance on my group.”? Why is this important for her to say?
2) Which of the “daily effects of white privilege” in McIntosh`s list sticks out to you and why?
3) What do you think McIntosh means when she writes that admitting white privilege means giving up “the myth of meritocracy”?
Also answer the questions on “White People:
1) What is a “white bubble”? What are its effects?
2) Dakota (23, Tobaccoville) brings together old friends from his predominantly white hometown and new friends from the historically black college (HBC) that he attends. At the dinner, Dakota says he “can get ghetto real fast.” What does he mean? As one of his guests asks, “What is ghetto?” Hearing this word thrown around is very upsetting to Brittany, one of Dakota’s college friends. Why? What do you think about this incident/issue?
3) The video mentions a study showing that nearly 50% of young white Americans say today discrimination against whites is as big a problem as discrimination against minorities. How do you explain these results? What do you think about Katy’s (18) situation and her reaction?
4) Almost all of the students that Vargas (the host) talked to said they considered themselves “color blind,” that they “don’t see race.” And three out of four young white Americans said “Society would be better off if we never acknowledged race.” What do you think about these results? How do you explain them and do you think they’re positive or negative for race relations?
Integrate these key concepts:
affirmative action, color-blind racism, contact hypothesis, discrimination, ethnic group, ethnocentrism, institutional discrimination, minority group, model or ideal minority, prejudice, racial formation, racial group, racial profiling, racism, segregation, stereotype, symbolic ethnicity, white privilege
