Bamboozled, the Mirror, & Double Consciousness

 

Watch the movie and read the readings then write 150 words answering these questions below and you can write about a different aspect of the readings and the film, but make sure that it pertains to
the film and reading. These are the questions to be discussed:
Spike Lee’s Bamboozled underscores W. E. B. DuBois’s notion of "double consciousness": how does Lee create a visual manifestation of "double consciousness"? Ed Guerrero argues
that Bamboozled prefigures Precious: how does Bamboozled do this? What do you make of all of the racist "toys" and collectibles that Pierre and Sloane reveal throughout the film? Is
satire a good way to mock (in an attempt to destroy) this heavy subject matter? What do you make of the final montage in the film?

You have to include a quote from the readings and screenings in the post.
