    On discussion questions

    For our discussion questions do we need to have them typed out and ready to hand in or just answered so we can participate in class?

    carley -- good question. no, you don't have to type up your discussion question answers but you should keep your written work in your journal.

    On racial formation

    I was reading M&Z book and on page 5 where "Racial Formation" is I though of the exercise we did last semester when you gave us last names and we had to put them in a class like upper, middle, and so on just by there last name. I think that would really make the point he is trying to make. Just some thoughts.

    frank -- good observation. be sure to bring this up in class.

    On today's class

    i am glad we got a chance to talk to our classmates today. we all agreed that this class will be an interesting one considering all the people and the lack of space! respect for one another is going to have to be there!

    julia -- thanks for the feedback. i just wished we had more time to meet with more students than we did today.

    On learning

    I read the story about the pocket sized dictionary that you used in Law school and it occured I was always a memorizer, in all of my classes I memorize the words and apply them to the test. But, 1 week later I would forget all the info. Short term memorization brings short term results.

    bill -- that was jeanne in law school, not me. i do like your last point about memorization. leads to an important question -- what is real learning?

    On guns and social change

    A man in the film said, "It is American tradition to be armed and responsible. If you are not armed you are not responsible. You are in dereliction of your duty as an American citizen if you do not carry a firearm." I hope this is not social change that will become a law.

    iesha -- can you relate this interesting quote to what's going on here in wisconsin?

    On racial diversity

    Reading M&Z made me think, if you have 2 different ethinic groups, they have 85% of genetic diversity of all human species, you add a group similar to the original groups you then have 93% total human diversity. This mean that socalled "racial" groups are only seperated by 7% meaning THAT THERE IS MORE DIVERSITY WITHIN A SO CALLED "RACIAL" GROUP THAN BETWEEN RACIAL GROUPS.

    tara -- an interesting observation but what is your reaction or intepretation of this? why.

    On Who Moved my Cheese?

    The reading was a little elementary, but I liked the message behind the story. It makes you analyze who you are and it helped me to look to the future. I would definitly recommend this book to any one who has a half an hour to kill.

    christina -- which character are you most like and why? i think the book is much more than if you have a "half an hour to kill."

    On class discussion

    thought i would let you know that i think this class is going to be a good one. it seems people have a lot to say and want to listen. lets hope it stays that way!

    julia -- yes, i'm definitely going to apply the "aesthetic process of answerability" this semester.

    On media, ratings and ads

    Is media news ratings driven??? Yes because media televises what gives them business. They televise what people want to see. In a way they do not care as long as they are making money. In response to today's disussion when you asked does American media managers create, process...and determine our behavior. I agree because no matter how much we can deny that we do not fall into things like advertisements traps, people do fall in the traps of believeing what they see on the media. It is almost like it we feel what we see in the media can be the same for us if we buy this product or act a certain way.

    katie -- can you think of an advertisement trap that you got caught up in recently? why.
