Race and Criminal Justice Discussion
I’m working on a sociology discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
How did the documentary make you feel? What did you take away from it? What are some connections to other course material you can make to the documentary?
How do you think media and popular culture representations of Black people, particularly Black men, have contributed to the dangerous climate of fear and anxiety? How can we challenge these instances of racism and dehumanization (give specific examples)?
What have you learned about our criminal justice system? Other political institutions? How did these films shape your understanding of the prison system? Was there a particular case or series of facts that altered or challenged any pre-existing views you have? Explain.
