We are watching a 3-part documentary over Weeks 8 & 9 with the overarching theme of the historical relationship between racism and talentism.
I suggest some very broad questions to be explored across the two weeks, with a simple prompt: Take any of the sections of Chapters 9, 10, 11, and 12 and discuss how the history of the Racism-Talentism Complex help you understand those themes better. These are the sections in bold in the Table of Contents and in the chapters. We will discuss on Monday, 18th.
Though the documentary is the history of racism, it is nearly equally the history of “talentism,” the social superstition of the belief in the existence and power of special individuals worthy of leadership, resources, and power above all others. It is the other side of the coin of racism.
