The texts by Lott and Lowe address complex systems that depend on and produce racism (and race). Choose one of the specific cultural forms they describe (for example: blackface minstrelsy in the 1840s, immigration laws, reactions to Lin’s design for the Vietnam Memorial) and describe how it relates to the historical system. For the people involved, was the racism of this cultural form overt or covert? How do you know? Your answer should refer to two texts from this week’s readings.
