Week 3 – Discussion Board
Rooting your answer in the context of the topic this week: What does it mean to “honor” someone? Who decides what is or is not an honor? How do issues of racism and ethnocentrism play out in this country’s actions when “honoring” Native Americans? Why do you think caricatures such as Little Black Sambo and the Frito Bandito were banished long ago while the Cleveland Indian logo (Chief Wahoo) remains? (If you don’t know what these other characters are, please make sure you Google them.) What is the impact of stereotypes on the individuals who are being stereotyped? 10 Points
Primary Post due Thursday before midnight (EST) and Student Response Post due Sunday before midnight (EST).
