    On optimism

    Today in class you brought up how habermas views things with optimism and hopefulllness and that reminded me of the book I read for a creative measure-Who moved my cheese??? Through the whole book one of the many themes were hope and optimism and to exbrance change.

    katie -- yes, both habermas and Marxist criminologists are hopeful and optimistic. If there is no hope, what else is there.

    On Manning Marable

    A student stood and asked a question as to how much money should be given? Dr. Marable responded (First answer), "there was a experiment in which the white students were asked how much money it would take in order for them to if they could become a black person. Each person came up with a figure and they were added together and divided by the number of students in the class and the amount was something near $45 million. Dr. Marable say that says whites do know that their is white privilege" Second answer, "i would say I just want justice and justice is what is fair."

    iesha -- if you're interested in the issue of reparations, you might want to read Martha Minow's Between Vengeance and Forgiveness

    On Manning Marable

    Dr. Marable spoke on the issue of Reparations for Blacks for unpaid labor from slaves. He spoke on structural racism in the US and wants the truth to be told about history.

    april -- whose truth?

    On American Indians

    In response to the statement in class today about "how have peoples view about Indians changed in recent years." I believe peoples minds are opened and more truth is learned, about things in general, at a higher level; college,grad. school, self-practice. Sasso's course about Native Indians opened my eyes. A course like that would never be offered at a high school. The bigger question is why? They compared the Indians to savages but events like Wounded Knee, the Trail of Tears, and Chief Josephs run for Canada, shows that the U.S. was more of a savage then anyone else.

    bill -- your point is well taken. have you read Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee?

    On a media positive

    In response to who had said our classs seems to bash media too much. I agree to an extent because some media is really good and informative. Like take the 9/11 scare the televised viewing of the planes hitting the world trade center was for good informative for people to be viewing. It is just that some media can be really badand good, we just have to edcuate people so that they can understand what is good and bad.

    katie -- your point is well taken -- the need to educate people about the media.

    On media positives?

    We were talking about how there was always bad talk in class about the news and that there was no positive. My comment in the I was listening to the ABC and a pre-view for the news came on... it said "turn to ABC news for all your news updates and latest gossip". How can one find the positive in the news when even they say its gossip?

    brynn -- you raise an important question here!

    On video games

    In Wednesday's class we mentioned that children are more violent because of the video games they play. I think that children are playing more mature games at a younger age and it is confusing to them what is real and what is a game.

    frank -- can you think of an example to illustrate your point?
