Covert and Overt Racism in a Reddit Post

9 Jun

I find this entire page very interesting. I think it would be a fruitful exercise for students to read the first part (before the edits) when discussing covert/overt racism in everyday happenings. Later on the page the question, “What is the subtle form of racism that Reddit promotes?” offers some more on covert/overt racism. Other issues around white privilege arise, and some points about Tyler Perry could be useful for class as well…In fact, a generally “fun” activity could be for students to pick apart this thread/page by noting where sociology applies to this casual, and very open, conversation.
