San Diego State University White Like Me Documentary Film Questions

Initial post and replies due Saturday, October 3 by 11:59 pm

For this week’s discussion, we will use the research of anti-racist scholar and educator, Tim Wise in his documentary film White Like Me. You may access this film on Kanopy, on the page provided on this module or here. After you watch the film, please participate in this discussion by answering the following questions.

  1. According to the research of Tim Wise, what does it mean to be White in American society?
  2. What are some of the historical structural advantages the have benefited White people and how do they continue to play a role in racial inequality today? Must name at least three and describe how they operated for credit
  3. Based on Tim Wise and others interviewed in this film, what are some solutions to addressing racial inequality in our society?
  4. Reflect on how you experienced watching this film and any lessons you believe are of value.
  5. Give feedback to at least two classmates.

Please make sure that for the first three question, you provide answers directly borrowing from the work of Tim Wise and others in this film. The only place to offer your personal position on the work presented by Tim Wise and others should be on your answer to number 4. To help me see your direct answers for each question, please number each paragraph 1-4. If this is not clearly organized in this order, your grade may be impacted. Finally and as usual, no feedback to classmates, no grade.
