Religion & spirituality | History homework help


  1. Kellerman names over 30 examples of unearned benefits that Christians experience and that people of other religions and secular people do not.  How do you and your classmates or friends or neighbors experience Christian privilege or its absence – even noting whether or not the people you talk with are aware of this factor in everyday life. 
  2. A number of the chapters in this Section focus specifically on the way that religion impacts race. In fact, Bayoumi states in selection #48 that religion is an important factor in shaping how people perceive race – racializing members of minority religious groups, but ignoring the racial identities of majority religious groups. What evidence does he give to make this assertion? Do you agree with him? 
  3. How do the readings in selections # 47, 51, 52, and 54 illustrate intersections between religious oppression and racism? Provide specific examples and explanations.
