Students will complete a paper which expects them to apply the material covered in class (especially
Bonilla-Silva’s 4 frames of colorblind racism) to their everyday social world. This could be in their
everyday personal relationships and conversations (e.g., journal); in public internet postings (e.g.,
videos) or social media; or traditional media (film, TV, newspaper).
Keep in mind that in Chapters 2-5, Bonilla-Silva outlines the typical colorblind racism patterns, while
in Chapter 6 he looks at how progressive racial ideology differs from those, and in Chapter 7 how
racial “minorities” tend to use colorblindness differently than the majority. As his/her critical thinking
decision making objective, the student should decide whether the societal evidence s/he 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 s/he analyzes deliberately challenge one of the 4 frames of
colorblindness in some way, and s/he 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 must be 6 pages long, excluding the title page and any references. The papers will be
checked by Turniti.com for plagiarism. They will be submitted in d2l under Activities...Assignments.
Student should select (a) a film that has race as a major theme
(e.g., Crash; Mississippi Burning; A Time to Kill; American History X); OR (b) TV program or programs
that deal with racial content (e.g., episode of talk show when race-related theme is considered;
episode of sitcom that confronts race directly); OR (c) 2-3 OpEd pieces in a mainstream newspaper
that discuss race-related issues. The paper should present quotes that illustrate all 4 frames of
colorblindness and analyze them accordingly.
