    On Mark Denning's lecture

    i thought that the guest speaker was very interesting. Only 1/2 of 1% of the U.S. population are native americans. when he spoke about that, i was shocked to hear that fact. It was also interesting that he had to change his name after getting expelled from the school he was at because the students wouldn't let him into their group. His mother made him change his name because of the struggles he was having in school and outside of it.

    tony -- think about which arrigo theory that we've read about so far, best applies to his talk today.

    On Mark Denning's Lecture

    Mark Denning discussion on his personal experience dealing with stereotyping with the mascot issue, was eye opening and made you think. Some people do not know how hurtful stereotyping can actually be until it is flipped around on them. Being educated and learning to appreciate ones culture can eliminate alot of the negative stereotyping.

    april -- yes, he gave an interesting lecture but i wished we had time for questions and answers from the students. more interaction with him.

    Just wanted to let you know I really enjoyed the speaker today! He was very informative and made me think about a lot of things I never have. I really didn't realize things such as mascots were so hurtful to the Indians.

    amy -- good. we'll be discussing reactions to monday's guest speaker in class.

    I really thought that Mark didn't a wonderful job speaking to us. I feel as though i learned a lot. The 1/2 of 1% was unbelieveable to me. I know that someone brought him in for a creative measure, but i really think that you should have him or someone else speak during this part of the class.

    amanda -- glad you enjoyed the speaker but i'm not sure i understand your last point.

    I think April did a great job bringing in Mark. I really found the things he was saying to be informative and honest. I like his analogy of the "White Basketabll Camp". I also liked how he stated that all of the Indian Tribes are different. That speaks volumes. Thank you for that opportunity.

    spoon -- glad you liked it. by the way, bettie poole also helped bring him to campus.

    On Mark Denning's Lecture

    I thought Mr. Denning's discussion was very informative, it is nice to get the opinion of someone who actually experienced these American Indian stereotypes. I thought the most interesting thing he discussed was his family situation with his wife coming from a tribe where the mother has the power and himself from a tribe where the father has the power. This type of arrangement is not very common.

    jason -- thank you for the positive feedback!

    On peacemaking crim

    While reading about peacemaking criminology I came across a statement: Imposing a preexisting law or rule on someone literally amounts to letting one's prejudices override one's capacity to hear the many and various explanations and desires parties have. This statement can be linked to what we have discussed and what the guest speaker was discussing. That the minority groups within society are passed up. Voices are not heard.

    stephen -- good point. be sure to bring it up in class when we discuss peacemaking crim.

    On Voting Rights and African Americans

    According to this rumor, the Voting Rights Act will expire in 2007, and as a result African Americans are in danger of losing the right to vote in that year. The rumor is false. The voting rights of African Americans are guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Voting Rights Act, and those guarantees are permanent and do not expire. Voting Rights Act: The 15th amendment to the Constitution and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 prohibit racial discrimination in voting. Under the 15th amendment and the Voting Rights Act no one may be denied the right to vote because of his or her race or color.The 15th amendment to the Constitution and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 prohibit racial discrimination in voting. Under the 15th amendment and the Voting Rights Act no one may be denied the right to vote because of his or her race or color.These prohibitions against racial discrimination in voting are permanent; they do not expire. This information is from the Department of Justice Bettie Poole, THIS IS OVER 25 WORDS BECAUSE IT WOULD BE RATHER HARD TO EXPLAIN OTHERWISE . THERE ARE MISLEADING INFORMATION THAT ARE BEING CIRCULATED IN THIS COUNTRY.CAN THIS BE PLACE ON THE COMMENTARY PAGE. THANKS

    bettie -- i'll put this up but i usually don't with something this long.

    On "Incident at Oglala"

    I was just going to say that I liked the documentary, there is a band called Rage Against the Machine, they are an outspoken political metal band, they have a tune for Lenard Peltier.

    tara -- what is the title of the song?



    From CRMJ 490: Media, Crime & Criminal Justice

    On "Bowling for Columbine"

    over the weekend, I watched "Bowling for Columbine" on cable like three times, and I know you have proablay already seen or heard of it, but it was a very well put together documentary that dierectly relates to what we are discussing in Crime, Media, and CRMJ. The issues of media,and some of the social constructions of fear and danger, as well as the impact that the media has on our society. I think that any person taking this class should try and watch this film, as I think it directly relates!

    sarah -- i have the dvd but haven't had time to take a look at it. thought i'd have time during the winter break but did not. how does this documentary relate to the readings in this class?

    On media push/pull

    This is Angie Hetland from your media and crime class I just wanted to comment on the news. This morning on channel 6 they were saying how the public was talking about Bin Lodin and how they would like to see him executed. They were saying that the public should have the right to watch this on t.v. and that they would be willing to do a pay per view kinda thing. My comment to this is no wonder the media is soo extreme in what they cover it's becouse of us the public how,far is too far?

    angie -- you raise an interesting question -- is media push or media pull?

    On child abduction

    i know i spoke up in class about this, but i do think that child abduction cases in the media are incredibly interesting. they are definately over exaggerated-but what makes me crazy is that they are selective of what cases they talk about. you dont hear about all of them-why is that?! j

    julia -- you raise an important question. sounds like a good idea for a creative measure - interested?
