D‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍irections: Review the questions below and select one question to compose a 1.5-2 page critical analysis of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ text, Between The World and Me. A. How does Coates define and describe the black body throughout the book? What does Coates mean when he refers to the idea of losing his own body? Consider your own body, and the influences and individuals that have control over it. How your experience is similar to or different than the experiences Coates writes about? Why does Coates include physical descriptions of black bodies when writing about slavery and historical racism? B. Why did Coates choose not to comfort his son when the news broke that the police officer who killed Michael Brown would not be indicted? What was your own reaction to this verdict? How do you think people throughout the country reacted to this decision? How did this incident spark conversations about race and police violence in the media and in your personal life? What have you observed about the Black Lives Matter movement on the streets of Ferguson, New York City, Baltimore, and Charleston? How are young people resisting and organizing locally against police brutality? C. Coate‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍s writes that public schools in Baltimore were “not concerned with curiosity. They were concerned with compliance” and that education was “a means of escape from death and penal warehousing.” In what ways do public schools fail the communities they are meant to serve? Why did Coates choose to focus on his education, despite not feeling engaged or supported by his school? Is this different than your own experience with education? Coates writes that 60% of all young black men who drop out of high school will eventually go to jail. Why do you think this statistic is so high? D. Coates writes, “Black people love their children with a kind of obsession. You are all we have and you come to us endangered. I think we would like to kill you ourselves before seeing you killed by the streets that America made.” How does Coates’s description of parental discipline within the black community compare to your own philosophy regarding behavior, discipline, and punishment? What do you think of the practice of “violence administered in fear and love”? How is this form of discipline influenced by black parents’ perceived lack of control over their children, and inab‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ility to protect them
