Racial Divisions

Very Important Assignment Reflection 8: Write a reflection based upon two chapters (Chapter 1 and Chapter 5) of Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow, the short video clip about The New Jim Crow, and the documentary The House I Live In. WATCH The House I Live In Documentary. https://tubitv.com/movies/372320/the-house-i-live-in. https://youtu.be/Nv2lZh6NqCY Please consider the following topics and questions:  What types of historical norms, laws, structures, organizations, and contexts have contributed to racial divisions and disadvantages in this country?  Have you seen this play out in your own personal experiences (particularly, if possible, in relation to your experiences with the criminal justice system), and, if so, how? In chapter five, Michelle Alexander (2012, p. 188) notes that “[t]he nature of the criminal justice system has changed. It is no longer concerned primarily with the prevention and punishment of crime, but rather with the management and control of the dispossessed.” What does Alexander mean by this? What evidence does she provide to support this claim? Do you agree? If so, what additional evidence do you have to support this claim. If not, what evidence do you have to counter this claim? In answering the above questions, you must also consider what you think about Michelle Alexander’s general argument in the book as a whole that mass incarceration is the new Jim Crow.  How is mass incarceration similar to and different from prior forms of racial control?  Make sure to be specific about your supporting evidence and provide citations with page numbers! Finally, how do the above arguments relate to the consequences/outcomes of the U.S. War on Drugs (as depicted in the documentary The House I Live In) for poor communities and communities of color? Make sure to specifically reference the text of The New Jim Crow in your reply – this means including page numbers so we can all refer back to what you are talking about!    ALSO – AS THERE IS A LOT MORE READING MATERIAL TO COVER THIS WEEK, I DO THINK IT IS APPROPRIATE FOR YOUR INITIAL REFLECTIONS TO BE SOMEWHAT LONGER THAN NORMAL.  I REALLY WANT TO SEE YOU THOROUGHLY DISCUSS AND ANALYZE THE MATERIAL FOR THE NEW JIM CROW.  THEREFORE, RATHER THAN THE 600 WORDS MINIMUM OF PREVIOUS WEEKS, FOR THIS WEEK, I AM GOING TO REQUIRE A MINIMUM WORD COUNT OF AT LEAST 650 WORDS, without Critical Thinking Discussion Questions, AND I WELCOME AND ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO EVEN GO BEYOND THAT. Critical Thinking Discussion Questions.   At the end of each reflection, provide AT LEAST TWO questions about the reading that you think would be interesting for the class to discuss. Discussion questions should be clear, engaging, and answerable questions –try your best to make them as relevant to the topic and reading(s) of the week as possible.   AT LEAST 650 WORDS It does not include the name of the student, the university, the professor, or the name of the class. Note; Avoid PLAGIARISM and copying and pasting you will get you ZERO. Be sure I will check the papers. REVIEW AND WRITE ACCORDING TO THE INSTRUCTIONS. Please. look at my attachment.
