PHIL 2500 - Philosophy of Race and Ethnicity

Hours: 4
In this class we will examine foundational issues concerning race and ethnicity talk as it manifests/has manifested itself in the United States. In so doing, we’ll ask questions like “what is race/ethnicity?” “Is racial and ethnic talk itself racist?” “Do we live in a post-racial society?” “What makes an action, attitude, or belief racist?” “Can institutions be racist?” We will also take up issues concerning race and ethnicity. Such issues may include the criminal justice system, economic inequality, reparations, education, affirmative action, racial integration, beauty standards, cultural appropriation, and humor.
Notes: Except for Nursing majors, this course may be used as a substitute for the INST Reflection and Responsibility (INST 2200’s) requirement.
