Teaching Intolerance: Anti-Indian Imagery, Racial Politics, and (Anti)Racist Pedagogy
King, C. Richard
Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, v30 n5 p420-436 Nov 2008
In this article, the author explored the increasingly complex articulations of race and education associated with Native American mascots and the struggles over them. The author demonstrates that cultural symbols not only (mis)educate, strengthening racial ideologies and hierarchies, but that they also play a fundamental role in the creation of hostile learning environments. Moreover, the author suggests that rhetoric about education and learning clears a space to depoliticize and re-racialize signifying practices.
