DuBois & Fanon 1.)Using evidence from our reading by Du Bois, explain the meaning of “the veil” and “second sight.” Then, elaborate the implications of those experiential phenomena: how might the veil and its related experiences of double-consciousness be empowering or disabling? How might these parts of the African-American experience contribute usefully to American culture and politics? 2.)Discuss some essential differences between how Du Bois and Fanon analyze the experience of black persons. Be sure to focus on those differences that clearly distinguish between the two approaches. Sexton 3.)In several places of his essay, Jared Sexton refers to the unique situation faced by blacks in a white world. He compares the black experience to the experience of Jews, victims of colonial oppression, and others. What accounts, according to Sexton, for the qualitatively different experience of blacks? How is the black experience different than the experience of other oppressed peoples? Early Philosophy 4.)Compare and contrast how Socrates analyze Nietzsche democracy. Your response should hit upon the essential features that distinguish the two thinkers. Avoid superficial statements and strive for depth and sophistication. 5.)How does Nietzsche characterize modern “statesmen” (i.e., political and social leaders)? Given your reading of Nietzsche, what kind of leader, if any, would he like to see emerge in the future?
