Carol Andersons White Rage Thesis What is her position/thesis?
What major planks does she use in constructing her argument?
What are the broader implications of that thesis?
What are the strengths [i.e. elegant pieces of synthesis, logical conclusions, unassailable observations, etc.…] and/or weaknesses [inconsistencies, unanswered questions, leaps of faith, etc.…] of her position?
What evidence does she use and how does she use it? As Ferguson, Missouri, erupted in August 2014, and media commentators across the ideological spectrum referred to the angry response of African Americans as “black rage,” historian Carol Anderson wrote a remarkable op-ed in The Washington Post suggesting that this was, instead, “white rage at work. With so much attention on the flames,” she argued, “everyone had ignored the kindling.”
