Pillars of Eternity: The White March

This is my essay final so I need it to be done top notch. The class is about The four “pillars of whiteness.” This includes self-sufficient, self-control, gender conformity/ gender normality, and literacy/education. These are all characteristics of whiteness within America that make them “better” than minorities and maintain power/ seniority.

The essay question is the following: The “pillars of whiteness” discussed throughout this class set the parameters of race in America. However, as America began to see itself as a world power, following the Immigration Act of 1924, the country began to overturn the old immigration system. However, these seemingly racially progressive policies were intended to secure white privilege. What four “pillars” were most important in this effort and how were they used?

I need each white pillar to be shown and explained in-depth on how it took effort into continuously making racially progressive policies that were intended to secure white privilege. Each pillar needs to be explained on how it was used to keep whites in power.

EACH SOURCE MUST BE USED. THERE NEEDS TO BE A SOURCE TO PROVE EACH PARAGRAPH AND IDEA.

The essay prompt and exact instructions from my instructor are below. FOLLOW IT TO THE T!

Please answer the following question. The length of your essay should be between five to seven typed double-spaced pages (Times New Roman, 12-point font; one-inch margins all around). Not following this formatting will result in lost points.

PAGE LENGTH: Your essay must be several lines on page five without any extra line spacing or other format violations in order to meet the four-page minimum,

QUESTION: The “pillars of whiteness” discussed throughout this class set the parameters of race in America. However, as America began to see itself as a world power, following the Immigration Act of 1924, the country began to overturn the old immigration system. However, these seemingly racially progressive policies were intended to secure white privilege. What four “pillars” were most important in this effort and how were they used?

Evidence: Your essay must draw on these readings:

Nancy MacLean, “The Class Anxieties of the Ku Klux Klan” (This reading can be used to reference the long-term attempts to secure white privilege)

Takaki, “World War II”

Daniel J. Tichenor, “Strangers in Cold War America: The Modern Presidency, Committee

Madeline Y. Hsu and Ellen D. Wu, “Smoke and Mirrors: Conditional Inclusion, Model Minorities, and the Pre 1965 Dismantling of Asian Exclusion,”

Maddalena Marinari, “‘Americans Must Show Justice in Immigration Policies Too’: The Passage of the 1965 Immigration Act,”

and two other readings from the course.

Tips: You have already done some of this work in the last two essays. Now, you need to expand on that work and provide a much more complete analysis. Make sure that each “pillar” section demonstrates how the changing immigration policies ensured white control and reinforced the “pillars of witness”.

Sample Thesis

The advantage white people have enjoyed in America has been based on a common belief that whites were better equipped for success than other races. White identity was constructed implicitly and explicitly through an ideological framework called the “pillars of whiteness”. These “pillars” convinced America that white people didn’t really discriminate against minorities. It was just that minorities weren’t able to achieve the “pillars”. The most important pillars that were used to preserve white privilege while creating a more integrated America were w, x,y, and z.

FORMAT FOR YOUR ESSAY: In outline form, the essay should look like this:

-Intro (1/2 page maximum, with a thesis statement that answers the assigned question)

-Supporting paragraph #1 (start with an argumentative topic sentence that summarizes the main argument of that paragraph; fill in the rest of the paragraph with analysis and evidence). Watch your paragraph structure when you start a new thought, start a new paragraph. If you have a paragraph that is a page long, it is probably more than one paragraph.

-More supporting paragraphs (the same format as the first supporting paragraph; aim for six to eight supporting paragraphs in an essay of this length)

-Conclusion (1/2 page max; summarize your thesis in a sentence, and then take some liberties and speculate on the broader implications of your argument.) For instance, the focus on whiteness as the avenue to acceptable citizenship has not been undone. Current politics is still invested in protecting white privilege and restricting immigration from non-European nations. In this class, conclusion ideas do not require the same clear evidence that the arguments in the earlier parts of the essay required.

Citations: Do not worry about a bibliography or about formal footnotes or endnotes. Instead, use the same parenthetical citations (with page numbers) that we use for the response papers. Common-sense abbreviations are fine. You can use the same abbreviations we used in the Response Assignments.

As a general rule, you do not need to provide a citation for information so generic that someone could find it almost anywhere.

OTHER TIPS

* Remember to review the rules on plagiarism. Always put the words of other writers in quotation marks and provide a page citation. You can also paraphrase (that is, put the idea into your own words) and provide a parenthetical citation. It is not enough to just change a few words of someone else’s writing; this is still plagiarism. When you paraphrase, make sure you write entirely in your own words. Under no circumstances should you present other people’s writing as something that you created.
