Week 4 – Journal
Week 4 Journal: Intersectionality, Privilege, and Oppression
[WLOs: 5] [CLOs: 1, 2,3, 4]
Throughout each chapter of the text the authors have discussed the “matrix of race,” also known as the concept of intersectionality, which refers to the interconnected nature of our social identities, such as our race, class, gender, sexuality, etcetera. Together, our identities can create overlapping and interrelated systems of discrimination, disadvantage, and/or privilege. Many of us also have some identities that are disadvantaged and some that provide privileges.
For this journal, you will examine the sociological concepts of intersectionality, privilege, and oppression and trace the complexity of your own social identities related to these concepts.
Please review the resources What Is White Privilege, Really? Recognizing White Privilege Begins With Truly Understanding the Term Itself (Links to an external site.)and What Is Privilege? (Links to an external site.) and then answer the following questions below in a three- to four-page reflection:
· Using the “matrix of race” framework presented throughout the text, how would you describe your own social identities?
· Provide examples of your identities that provide you a relative privilege in society and those that cause a relative disadvantage.
· Provide an example of a societal stereotype based on your race and/or ethnicity. Explain how you would feel if someone assumed this stereotype about you without meeting you. Do you feel that you have ever been racially profiled? If yes, in what way? If no, why do you think you have not experienced this?
· There are some identities in society that provide a certain level of status to the people who embody them. In some communities, for example, becoming a professional athlete or being in the entertainment industry (i.e., musician) may be seen as “ways out.” Do you believe an identity, such as a professional athlete, lessons the likelihood of individuals experiencing racism and racial profiling? Please explain your answer in detail.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric (Links to an external site.) for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
