Together they should total about 1-1/2 pages.
The first paragraph will involve reading three of the papers on white supremacy that were written by your classmates for the assignment due a few weeks ago. The first was authored by one of your American Indian classmates (KFM paper #1); the second, by one of your white classmates (KFM paper #2); and the third, by one of your African-American classmates (KFM paper #3). Each of these papers, then, represents a different perspective on white supremacy. Your assignment is to read these three papers of your classmates and to write a paragraph on at least two ways they improve your understanding of how white supremacy works. Note that the papers are anonymous, and I have received permission from each of the scholars to share their work.
For the second paragraph, your assignment is to research and write about racial/ethnic and/or tribal differences with respect to the COVID 19 pandemic, differences that reflect white supremacy, racism, and other social phenomena, in a way that pays particular attention to American Indians. This said, you are welcome to write about the modicum of media attention that has been given to African-American health outcomes (or related topics) during the pandemic. I ask only that, either primarily or in tandem, you address American Indians. If you are struggling to find information, I have several leads for you. Google â€œcoronavirus in the Navajo Nation,â€ â€œcoronavirus and the Indian Health Service,â€ and even the decision, announced today, of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians to donate $100,000 to the Navajo Nation. I encourage you to look widely in Indian Country for information/stories that you find interesting and compelling.
