    On racial profiling

    racial profiling -- This page states that the term racial profiling came about in 1982 with the kick off of Regan's War on Drugs. The characterization of people with color as menacing figures have long been part of mainstream media and culture int the U.S. People of color are made as scapegoats for problems created by the ruling class. We have seen this since slavery.

    anne -- be sure to bring this up in class on wednesday. do you want to research this as a creative measure?

    On family names and stratification

    i really enjoyed the exercise that we did today matching names with the social class...i voted that you could not know just by last names but i was surprised by my own results...i think that we would all like to think that we dont assume things such as this but in reality we all do...i am very interested in this exercise and would like to look into it further by seeing what different generations think....i think this would be another good creative measure for me

    margaret -- can you provide me with some details exactly what you would like to do?

    On labeling theory

    the labeling thoery is most accurate when it says basically that you are a product of your own environment, others experts in the psychology field say that it is genetics that are to blame. I find it hard to believe that they can blame criminal behavior solely on genetics.

    kyle -- can both theories apply at the same time? why.

    On "Voices from Inside"

    I really enjoyed this documentary because it showed that not everyone in prison just sat back and talked about how they are innocent or how bad of a place they were in. These women did something to ease their minds, just like a form of rehabilitation (that actually worked). Another thing that was brought to my attention was the good relationship they had with their kids. A lot of the time you hear about kids following in their parents footsteps or just acting up because they feel they have no one to turn to, but their kids were taking it day by day and living life outside, but still daily with their mothers.

    caterricka -- i'm glad you liked today's documentary. we will be discussing it further when we get to the "special populations" discussion questions.

    that movie today was very enjoyable. I found it very interesting that this woman had come up with what seemed to be a sucessful rehabilitation for the women of that prison. I found Adia to be the most interesting of all with all very graphic depictions of prison. The one that stands out with me the most is the phrase "prison is like living in the bathroom with someone you never knew."

    stormie -- glad you liked today's documentary. we'll be discussing the female prisoner more in class.

    On "Voices from Inside"

    I learned many things from todays documentary. I detailed them in my journal. But briefly, I never realized how differently a women's faciality is from a men's. This was visible with the program shown using experimental theatrics. I don't think anything like this would have been done in a men's facility. I really feel that it helped the women and gave them a chance to express how they felt about being in prison and about being away from their children. Another point that struck me was that 75% of women in prison are convicted of non-violent crime. This seems like an extraordinarily high number. It seems to me that we can do something besides throw them in prison epecially since many have children. I think they should be given probation or couciling or even community service. I think that these things would be better suited to women. When giving out sentences I think that the fact that there are differences between men and women and how they respond to things should be taken into consideration. I think that women would not respond as well to prison and it's atmosphere as men, and this should be thought of more often.

    nicole -- this is rather lengthy. try to keep to "25 words or less" next time. nevertheless, bring up these points when we discuss "special populations."

    After watching the movie, it makes me feel that women struggles in prison are worst or almost as worst as men. The high stress level that women have to deal with if their have children.

    dominick -- why do women have it the "worst?"
