Lecture 5 There are people who seem to have something missing in them. i.e. common sense Deviance doesn’t just seem to be from labeling. Sociologists need to link everyday events to larger causes. When the blacks stopped people on the sidewalk, they made it difficult for people especially women to say no. Liberal whites feel especially bad passing a poor person on the street and saying no.
