Directions: After reading Omi & Winant, Smedley and Jackson & Weidman’s articles, I would like you to think about our discussion of racial scripting and the ways in which society has created what it means to be a member of a particular racial group. In doing so, I would like you to:
1. Find TWO (2) popular culture examples/representations of each racial group (White, Black, Asian and Latino). These examples can be from film, print, TV, or memes.
2. Along with the two examples per group, you must also include a brief explanation (7-10 sentences) that summarizes why and how your choices meet the requirement for being a representation of the script for that specific racial group. The explanation should be supported by references to the course readings.
The purpose of this assignment is to make sure that you are aware of the pervasiveness of these scripts and the fact that while they originated many years ago, they still linger and continue to show up in our everyday lives and experiences.
