I’m Asian Chinese.
Instructions: In Race, Place, and Power, Lipsitz discusses many ways that racism is spatialized. Pick any one of the ways from the reading and critique its presence in your hometown. Your critique should be about a page long. The analysis components will differ depending on the particular form of spatialized racism that you decide to analyze. Hence, there are no hard rules on what to include in your critique. End your critique with a summary of what is being done to combat this form of spatialized racism. If nothing is being done, then end with a paragraph proposing something that can be done.
Skeleton Example:
Lipsitz talked about the proliferation of fast-food restaurants in Black neighborhoods (2.4 per square mile) compared with white neighborhoods (1.5 per square mile). In the analysis, I would discuss the health implications that the lack of nutritious food options has on Black people. I would end my critique by proposing community gardens as a way to provide nutritious foods in Black communities. I would discuss the ways that cities can subsidize these gardens as a matter of public health.
