Pay attention to the following terms as you read the Introduction and chapter 1 of Tatum’s book.
– Cultural racism
– Internalized oppression (or internalized racism)
– Systemic racism (or “racism as a system of advantages based on race”)
– Active racism
– Passive racism
– Active anti-racism
Provide a brief definition for each of these terms. Then select three out of the seven terms and discuss they ways in which they relate to Asian American history during the exclusionary period (pre 1952/1965) in about 150 words.
Then write another paragraph of about 150 words applying three terms (the same terms or different terms) to the present situation of Asian Americans (post 1952/1965). If you believe that Asian Americans don’t experience any form of racism presently, then say so and defend your opinion.
