Critical Paper Instructions

In no less than 3 and no more than 4 pages, single-spaced, you are to address the following:

Describe the development of race and racial thinking from the European expansion into the "orient", to European intrusion into Africa, and eventually Spanish and British colonization of the Americas. How did race emerge as a social construct and in what ways was it utilized with different groups, i.e. with Africans (Blacks), Europeans (Whites), Asians, and American Indians (provide specific examples and evidence of the experiences of at least two major groups). Make sure to address the connection between Said's (1978) notion of Orientalism and racial thinking.

Consider the impact Greek and Roman mythology had in shaping the medieval dream and renaissance fantasy? What were the connections between racial thinking, cultural imperialism, and European imperialist projects? And lastly, how did these ideologies, social constructs, and racial structures drive the creation of exploitative labor systems like the encomienda and the Atlantic Slave Trade Enterprise. You are to detail the notion of whiteness and colorblind racism in relation to the institutionalization of a white supremacists ideology throughout the periods covered in this class.

How are white supremacy (ideology), race (social construct), and racism (system) connected and self sustaining? Make sure that you use specific examples of how Whiteness was created, and how it has been maintained over time.
