    On Marxist Criminology

    In chapter one of the Arrigo book, I found it interesting that "the criminal justice system controls the lower classes." This is definitely true and needs to be addressed more within our society. There are, without a doubt, people omitted from the system, and this should not happen. I would have to agree with Marx that to achieve social justice there must be a level of economic equality.

    stephen -- good, this shows me that you're keeping up with the readings. what needs to be done so that we can achieve economic equality? why.

    On white privilege

    It was interesting to see the list of White Privileges from a white female. If the leaders/law makers (whom are mainly white males) were to acknowledge that there is race problem and want to change some of their views, there could be positive changes in this diverse population.

    april -- yes, i'm sure there would be several positive changes.

    On the idea and concept of race

    Both of your statements about race are true. (1) Biologically there are only three pure races, and (2) there are more differences within races than between them.

    tom -- as a creative measure, want to explore the arguments on the other side?

    On the 6 Circles

    the in-class project brings out a great issue that everyone's perspective can be different evening if they are looking at the same thing. Each person has their own view of what they think is right to them.

    tony -- yes, definitely! let's celebrate our differences and diversity!

    On socialist feminism

    In Arrigo under the Socialist Feminism idea, that women were pressured into seeking men's protection in heterosexual nuclear families, pg 38. I fail to see any type of actual pressure, I do see the avenue of conformitity and I belive that women willing decided to step into marriage. They did have limited freedoms, but pressure was not a factor.

    bill -- interesting observation but then how do you explain "arranged marriages?" this might be a good issue to explore as a creative measure.

    On the Zax (monologic nonanswerability)

    . . . I also wanted to comment on today's lecture. I thought that it was very stimulating and definitley perceived society today as a whole. On the Zax i feel that people are very close minded and unwilling to hear differnt views and with that attitude we will never get anywhere. So as long as monolgous answearbility exists, we will always have controversy everywhere.

    sammy -- how do we breakthrough monologica nonanswerability, then?

    On the "Cat in the Hat" video

    Today in class we watched the Cat in the Hat videos. I felt the first video we watched about the lesson of understanding differences is good. It teaches many young viewers who watch The Cat in the Hat to understand what discrimination is and why there is no need for it.

    katie -- i'm glad you liked today's video.



    From CRMJ 490: Media, Crime & Criminal Justice

    On reality tv

    i've been researching reality tv shows on the internet to start with. i have found that there is not a lack of participants for these shows, nor is there an angle producers and networks won't touch. once the reality show has been established it is taken one step further. example, the bachelor, now the bachelorette, real world and road rules, now a real world/road rules challenge on mtv, fear factor individuals, now couples, twins, parent/child, sibling and best friend fear factors. not surprising to me more telling about what our society (in general) is interested in spending (or wasting depending on how you look at it) their time on and how we are being constructed everyday by the media.

    carley -- what were your sources on all this? reliable sources? be sure to bring this up when we discuss reality tv.
