Ethnic Studies

Exploring Race with Videos

Essential Questions:

  • How does race/racism affect our lives and society?
  • How do I participate in and/or am affected by systematic Oppression/inequality?

Please add the following 3 terms to your Ethnic Studies Glossary

  • Implicit bias: negative associations that people unknowingly hold. They are expressed automatically, without conscious awareness.
  • White fragility: discomfort and defensiveness on the part of a white person when confronted by information about racial inequality and injustice.
  • White supremacy: white people are seen as central and inherently better than POC.
