Each question requires one paragraph. Each paragraph must contain 5 or
more sentences. Please read the rubric. Respond to 2 or more classmates with 3 or more sentences. Failure to follow these instructions will result in deduction of points. Remember that you will obtain a failing score for the entire DB post if you first submit a blank post first, for I consider it cheating. Along the lines of cheating submitting a partial DB post first and an additional one to complete the DB will also result in only the first (partial) post being graded. In other words, keep all answers on one post.
For more info on grading policy for Discussion Boards see the grading rubric located in the syllabus and other docs tab. Lastly, all citations must contain page numbers or else you will lose 10 points.
You can locate the documentary 13th on Netflix or YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krfcq5pF8u8
1.How does 13th characterize our criminal justice system and political institutions? How did this film shape your understanding of the prison system? Was there a particular case or series of facts that altered or challenged any of your pre-existing views? Explain.
2. How do you think media and popular culture representations of Black Americans, particularly of Black men, have contributed to a dangerous climate of white fear and anxiety? (Think back to the way George Zimmerman was heard describing Trayvon Martin, or the media frenzy around the Central Park Five that resulted in their wrongful imprisonment.) How can we challenge these instances of racism and dehumanization?
