For your final essay on ethnic representation in politics, you will need to watch two different documentaries; Race 2012 and Miss-Representation. Using Race 2012 and Miss-Representation, write about some of the pitfalls that women and ethnic individuals might face in the world of politics. In your opinion, is the system set up for these individuals to even pursue politics? Mention the concept of “Whitetopia”. How is “whiteness” defended in the media? How might women be unfairly portrayed against their male counterparts when running for office?
For full credit, you MUST actually WATCH both documentaries and report on them. Your opinion is fine, but it must be underscored by evidence that you WATCHED both documentaries. If I do not see evidence from the documentaries to accompany your writing, I will automatically drop your score by two letter grades on this portion of the final. This will be due Week 8 on December 15th (The last day of class). There will be absolutely ZERO extensions on this assignment because I must have grades submitted the very next morning after both finals are due. Answer in 5 paragraphs; APA Style
