Media Analysis


students 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) a 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. 



The movie is   American History X


Course Paper

Students will be expected 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 3-6, Bonilla-Silva outlines the typical colorblind racism

patterns, while in Chapter 7 he looks at how progressive racial ideology differs from those, and in Chapter

8 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 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?
