    From CRMJ/SOCA 363: Corrections

    Shannon Holbert wrote on Wednesday, October 19th:
    On her poem, "I'm Out"

    I'M OUT

    The bars

    They remain with Me

    I'm out

    I'm free

    Today's a new day

    Gonna visit my mom today

    Gonna visit my boo today

    What's my cuzin into?

    Gonna get my hair cut today, buy a suit.

    I got a few bucks,

    buy a bus pass.

    Gotta get around.

    I'm gonna enroll in school today.

    I rest.

    I gotta get a job today.

    I get the applications,

    I check the "yes" box...

    ...turned it in with hope and a smile.

    I have a new outlook!

    A New life outside the bars!

    But, the bars

    They remain with Me.

    shannon -- thank you for sharing this poem. can you read it to the class?

    On the documentary, "Prison Gangs and Racism"

    I found it odd that Warden Estelle said that the teaching methods weren't working, so what are they doing to improve or make them work? He also said it goes back to the individual, that's odd also, because rehabilitation is a two-way street.

    stefnee -- good observation! if a prisoner wants to participate in a treatment program but the correctional officers and/or administrators are not supportive, then what?

    From CRMJ 365 : Race, Crime, Law

    On the movie, "Crash"

    I noticed that many student are now saying that "Crash" was not realistic on yahoo now that you posted your response, but before you posted it almost everyone thought it was a great depiction of stereotyping and racism in our society. Do you think it has to do with you being a professor or the fact that your response made them see the movie differently? Just wondering

    latanya -- good observation. i noticed that, also. can you post this observation on the yahoo discussion group?

    Shannon Holbert wrote on Wednesday, October 19th:
    On her poem, "Questions Raised"

    QUESTIONS RAISED

    What is the color of my skin?

    I have been called yellow.

    I am black and white with a hint of red.

    Wouldn't that make me pinkish-grey?

    Can my color be used for interior design?

    Is it not the interior design of all of us that creates this silly identification of color?

    Wouldn't it be funny if the same stigmas of hair color were the stigmas we used for skin color?

    That brunnettes (brown skin) meant intelligence.

    That blondes (white skin) meant naiveness.

    That red-heads (red skin) meant remarkably rare.

    That black hair (black skin) meant exotic ebony.

    These stigmas really are the reality of it all.

    What is the color of my hair?

    Brown.

    Brown is beautiful.

    shannon -- can you read this poem in class?

    On "the Spirit of Crazy Horse" documentary

    The sprit of crazy horse was a sad movie. What capture me was the first part of the movie the showed a little boy saying how. And than the movie goes into this nation inside a nation the indians had to fight for respect and freedom this was a great eye opener because I never knew that in 1974 indians were fighting for land. That was taken from them in the first place. P.S Great EYE Opener

    mosa -- want to do a creative measure focusing on the American Indian? if not, what would fellman say about this documentary?
