Discourse of race (paper 2)

The Blackness Project was in response to the Whiteness Project film that was released. This film shows the views of African-Americans and what they feel it’s like to be black in America. Black people have been facing bias and this film along with the New York Times article about professionals who experience bias at work bring light to the situation. In the article there are accounts of professionals whose professions were incorrectly identified or not believed. They also explain the behaviors and actions they take to counteract these conceptions. For example Dr. Gomez was seen as not qualified enough so she started wearing her badge on her chest as opposed to on her hip like her colleagues.
