“The case for Reparation”
The Case For Reparations Chap. I-III
Please answer all questions with a well thought-out paragraph.
1. Why does the author begin with a narrative of Clyde Ross’s struggles.
2. On page 5, the author discusses the theft of black-owned land “stretching back to the antebellum period.” He notes that land later became country clubs, oil fields and a baseball spring training facility. Why do you think the author makes note of this.
3. In Chap. II, the author notes: “One thread of thinking in the African American community holds that these depressing numbers partially stem from cultural pathologies that can be altered through individual grit and exceptionally good behavior…The thread is as old as black politics itself. It is also wrong.”
What do you make of his assessment?
4. This chapter seems to be the heart of Coates’s argument. In what ways is his argument strong? Where is it weak? How does he use ethos, pathos and logos in this chapter? Does he engage in any logical fallacies?
