Another nice blog from my student!
What do you think of Bonilla-Silva and Zuberi’s use of the term “white logic”? Do you think it is possible to have a discussion about decolonization without a discussion of race or the social constructs of race?
Until I participated in this course, I had never questioned the concept and structure of research and especially had not questioned any underlying bias with regard to western and euro thought processes. While I knew history was created with many untruths to perpetuate the imperialist attitudes and ideologies, I saw scientific research as fundamentally neutral. Well I now know that I was wrong and naïve. That is not to say that I believe every research conducted on indigenous populations lack validity but emphasis should be on interpretation with a critical lens that focus on any suggestion of imperialist thought or connotation. I more fully understand the concept of white logic and white methods thanks…
