Problem 6RCQ

How does the Sun’s diameter compare with the distance between Earth and the Sun?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Culture of Collective Entitlement (I)  Steele: minority advocacy groups as “grievance culture” (55-6) o What does he mean by grievance culture  Defined by feeling bad for themselves  Playing the victim  Pity party  Complaining  What’s bringing everyone together is being victimized o Regard themselves as having special moral authority rooted in the urgency of the injustices being committed against them o What is moral authority  Your place to say what is right and wrong when it concerns you  If you’ve been wronged, then you have the right to make certain types of demands  Authority of oppressed (or legitimate spokespersons for the same) to make certain demands on the oppressor o New Sovereignty  What does Sovereignty mean  When you have absolute and independent authority  Implicit comparison to an “old sovereignty” of white males in Jim Crow and antebellum America  These groups are constantly looking for ways that they are singled out from everyone else and how they are being targeted.  Illegitimate sovereignty:  Authority is not grounded properly when grounded in arbitrary characteristics like race, gender or sexual orientation Culture of Collective Entitlement (II) Grievance culture justified by urgent need to fight injustice:  Leads to a need to perpetuate sense of grievance  This results in the adoption of identities (ways of understanding who we are) organized primarily around historical grievances and a sense of victimhood. o These people always feel targeted, always make themselves look as if they are being pointed out or singled out o Activist groups may not be educated and using their anger to fix problems from the past instead of solving the problems that’s will make things equal for everyone.  Need to perpetuate sense of grievance may overtake foal of bettering the group the organizations is supposed to represent  Need to perpetuate sense of grievance makes it beneficial to pursue unnecessarily divisive agendas: why o Police officers feel targeted because of the shooting of a black man which interferes with their job.  Question: What evidence foes Steele offer in favor of his claims about so-called “grievance culture” o 1989 NAACP convention (p.56) o He really doesn’t provide any evidence to back up his claims o He has a few evidence but he does not elaborate on it which is a problem. 2
