For this week’s discussion, you are tasked with the following:
1. Read and annotate “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” then compose a reply to the reading of no less than 300 words that: introduces the title and author, summarizes the reading briefly, defines one of the arguments or persuasive points within the reading that the author is making, responds to that argument in relation to one of our class themes using specific evidence from the text (i.e. Do you agree or disagree; why? Is there something you would add; why? Is there something you object to; why? Is the argument derivative of a logical fallacy in the author’s work; how so? Is this similar to something you’ve heard before; how so? Can you relate it to any other class readings or previous things you’ve read; how so?), and uses proper MLA in-text citations* for your quoted evidence.
If you are unsure about your response to the reading, or if you are unsure where to start you response, you may consider any of the following questions to help you get started:
A. Do you agree with McIntosh’s definition of white privilege as “a package of unearned assets [white people] can count on cashing in each day” and “an invisible knapsack of special provisions, maps, passports, codebooks, visas, clothes, tools and blank checks” and/or with some of the effects of white privilege as she enumerates them, from inside her own economic class, religion, ethnic status (separate from race) and geographic location (McIntosh 1 – 6); why or why not? Does the logic she cites point to the idea that contemporary Western and U.S. culture organized in a way that privileges some and not others, or some more than others; why or why not?
2. After submitting your own discussion post based on the guidelines in step 1 above, submit a response to one of your classmates’ posts of no less than 100 words.
*(Remember, in-text citations are the “parenthetical” references in the text of a work that include either the author of a source and the page number you are citing, just the author for a non-paginated work, the title of a source and the page number you are citing for works with no authors, or just the title of a source for non-paginated works with no authors. In-text citations should appear at the end of the sentence, before the period, in which the quoted material is used).
