    On the Dr. Seuss videos

    I really enjoyed the "Sneetches" video we watched in class on friday. Dr. Seuss was able to portray how we constantly try to conform ourselves to what is "in" in order to be socially accepted. Often, we want to be accepted so badly we are willing to change ourselves at the drop of a dime. In the end though, none of it really matters anyhow--we are all the same on the inside. It's just unfortuntate that we can't always see that.

    lindsay -- think about how the video relates to this week's theories in the arrigo book.

    On the "Streets of Heaven"

    i just wanted to send my reaction to todays video in law and social change. i thought it was a very good movie but one thing i really didnt like is how the commentator would say oh well i had my first kid when i was 30...then ask the question. it kinda seemed like he deemed himself better than those he was interviewing.

    sarah -- i was wondering if anyone else was going to pick up on Gate's attitude/approach because i sure didn't like how he interacted with others.

    On the documentary, "Slavery and the Making of America"

    I just finished watching the movie that you suggested on slavery. I found it very interesting. I think that this is related to law and social change becuse throughout the movie the laws that effected the lives of the slaves came about because of the changes in society. I also think that it links to the Marxism beliefs that were explained in the Arrigo text. All of this happened because the people of Ducth New Amsterdam wanted free labor to create a new land.

    jamie -- would the marxist criminologists have anything else to add? what would the socialist feminists say about this documentary? why.

    I had heard of Rosa Parks but not "Mombets" Elizabeth Freeman, David Walker, Mariah Stewart. I think these people should be included in history text books. Had no idea that slaves used the legal system as early as they did.

    linda -- why is it that we have not heard of these names in our history books? why.

    . . . By the way the documentary on Slavery and the making of America was very interesting so interesting that I went online and found out there is a movie similar to the documentary the movie is called "Roots" which I'm going to be watching as part of my crative measures. . .

    adriana -- yes, compare and contrast this documentary with "Roots."

    On birth control

    I wanted to comment on the discussion about why there not as many birth control devices for men as opposed to women. Their main source of birth control is a condom, which they use obviously to prevent std's as well. But I think that men should have to take more responsibility involving preventing pregnancy just like women. A lot of birth control isn't cheap either. Another gender issue that I thought of recently is the idea of an engagement ring for a woman. Yeah of course we won't complain because we get beautiful and expensive jewelry, but I started thinking of the concept. And when a woman is wearing her engagement ring, it shows the rest of society that she is taken, however only after marriage actually occurs is when a man symbolizes with his wedding ring that he is taken. Why are such labels put on women earlier then men? It is like the woman is property of someone else and is labeled so with a ring before marriage. Why then do men have nothing to symbolize that they are taken before they commit to marriage? Why are men not objectified as "not available" or "property of someone else" like women are?

    kristine -- okay, but next time, try to keep to "25 words or less". you raise some interesting questions here.

    I really enjoyed this documentary because it was very informative and it's sad that a lot of African Americans don't know about there history including myself.

    chassidy -- why is it that now we hear about this aspect of american history?
