An examination of Race, Class, and Justice in a "post-racial" America
HON200-01 Tues & Thurs, 11:00–12:15pm, I. Togun, C. Barnes, D. Stocker
What does it mean to be "White"? What does it mean to be "Black"? Are the differences real? Or are the differences illusions created and perpetuated by the labels themselves? Psychologists, anthropologists, and biologists largely agree that race is a social construct, not a real one. The things that make us different, from a broader perspective, are negligible, while the things that link us are myriad. Yet, in the United States of America, differences abound along racial, social, economic, academic, and judicial lines. Why? This class explores how a label (or is it more than that?), applied at birth, can determine the destinies of individuals and a people. We examine these differences from a historical, biological, psychological, and criminologist perspective, using both historical and contemporary perspectives. The class employs both seminar and discussion formats. ALL opinions are welcome. Come join us.
