The main issue the public wanted to address when legalizing marijuana was to prevent minorities from being stopped and questioned. However, because the prop was not passed the overall goal was not met. This article discusses the hope that some voters have in order to one day in the future meet this goal and make a small impact towards the judicial structure. Many potential solutions were presented but the main goal of the article was to let others know that the fight was still going on. I feel that this article will have a strong impact on social attitudes. Others who were looking for the prop to pass will have hopes for the future and engage in making that change.

The author of this article took a more sympathetic approach to this story so that the readers can feel the pain that their family was going through. Things like "They took him” and “We felt humiliated," flooded the article to capture the fool essence of the story. Also the use of images revealed a weeping family as well as powerful images of the daughter giving a speech about why her father should be able to stay in the country. Here the root cause is the structure of society. They were forced to come to America because of the drastic living conditions in their own country. It was not fit to raise a family and make something out of their selves. So moving to America was something they had to do rather than a decision they ... More »

In this article the author is able to confirm the assumptions people are already making about the New York Police. They are wrongfully arresting African American and Hispanic individuals. When this particular man looked at the results and facts of the police department, he was able to discover that 90 percent of the people accused of committing some form of act was innocent. The root cause lies with the New York Police department not the people. The problem is on an institutional level rather than on a personal or individual level. The author also suggest that their needs to be a change in the police structure and what they are allowed to do and not to do. Once we are able to achieve this goal then African- Americans and ...

I decided to post this particular story because it blames the police for the poor decision they made when deciding to shoot and kill a 37 year old man. There was no need for the police to use such force against an unarmed man. I understand that this man may have not been listening but the police had no right to take his life. This is a clear example of structural and institutional issues amongst the community. The police feel as if they have the power to do whatever they want without consequences for their actions.

This article frames or blames the problem at hand on the police officers in Oakland, California. They were often described as using force against the protestors that was unnecessary or unlawful. So when an individual first reads the article, it makes it seem like the protestors are the victims. However, the article also states that there were riots that broke out in the city of Oakland. People were behaving in a manner that was detrimental to the safety of others. The police were only acting in accordance to the environment around them which enabled them to use excessive force. There may have been some innocent bystanders but generally the people causing the trouble were caught on tape as well. This article was an example of ... More »

I felt this article was good to review because it was very uplifting and had a positive effect on structures set up in our community. Proposition 20 was passed which allows South Asians to have more of a voice when voting on issues. They were able to see the problem as a people and make the necessary changes so that they did not remain voiceless. This community can now say that they were able to make a difference and make way for others in their community and also outside their community. Inequality is no longer an issue for the South Asians now that they have equal representation. I enjoyed reading this article because it was refreshing to read something that gave me hope for the future. They were able to make change that was ... More »

In this article, the author discusses structural issues that are an important factor to look into when dealing with issues of the “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” policy. I personally believe that gay and lesbian individuals should be able to serve in the army. Their sexuality has nothing to do with their ability to make rash decisions. However, I was able to see some of the concerns that this policy address when implemented. Like I have stated before ones sexuality has nothing to do with their ability to use a weapon or make rash decisions, so there really is no need for there to be discussion about ones sexuality. People who like the opposite sex are not allowed to show their preferences for the opposite sex. Society has made ... More »

I feel that this article exemplifies stereotypes about the African American race when it comes to the criminal justice system. In this story, there was an older man convicted of killing a police officer. This African American man by the name of Mumia Abu-Jamal was a former Black Panther member and often voices his opinions on what is right and wrong in regards to racism. The article painted a picture of a man claiming to be “wronged” in regards to his trial and the juries. He states that there was not one African American individual on the jury and because of that, he was not represented well. He has also gone through many lawyers who were given the duty of representing him in court. The article gives no details as in to why ... More »

In my opinion, I feel that this article exemplified many stereotypes about undocumented student s and how the general population views them. It reiterated the ideas and frameworks that the government of Texas were implementing in the state and teaching their people. The general point made was that undocumented students were flooding our school and taking our jobs. Overall, I strongly believe that the article was playing into stereotypes about the people who refer to undocumented immigrants as “illegal aliens” as well as the sympathy aspect in trying to get others to understand the lifestyle of an undocumented student. The repercussions for writing an article in this format is that one may lose readers. If it was written in a ... More »

In this article, I believe that it addresses many stereotypes about Feminism and Women activist. When most people here the Terms "Feminism" and "activist" they think of man hating women trying to aggressively show their dominance or value in society. However, the article was also able to prove to its readers that the term "Feminism" is taking on a new meaning and viewed in a different light. Now it is a "must have" label placed upon women to show strength and leadership. The ... More »

I thought this was an interesting article to read on California school budgets because it reveals how much of a problem we are still dealing with. A lot of the news coverage today is trying to push for the future and talk about only the positive. But in reality we are dealing with major educational issues. Which in turn reflects more of the issues of immigration. If we can not afford to house and educate american citizens then we are definitely going to have a problem educating ... More »

I chose to write about this article because it reflected quality Journalism. It addressed a lot of the issues dealing with the "Don't ask, Don't Tell" in an informative way that did not reflect bias'. However, I do feel as if the author wanted the readers to see the injustices of the "Don't ask, Don't Tell" through the overall structure and layout of the article. Both sides of the issue was reflected within the article in a clear and coherent fashion. One point that I really connected with when reading the article was a statement made by Barry Goldwater when he says, “I don’t care if they are gay or straight, as long as they can shoot straight.” the statement is presented in a harsh manner but reflects a lot of truth. A ... More »

In my Opinion, I believe that the article brings up a lot of good points. So I am kind of stuck in the middle with this particular issue. On one hand, I do not believe it is fair for undocumented students to receive enrollment at these various Georgia Universities over citizens. I strongly believe that we have to cater home first before we can out source our resources to others. However, I do understand that most immigrant children are brought illegally into the country because of ... More »

I believe this article was very well written and brought up a lot of good points on the "Don't ask, Don't Tell" issue. It was refreshing to read about a break in allowing Gay/Lesbian communities play an active role in the military freely (at least for the time being). Their still needs to be change implemented but their has been a major step made to give hope for the future. It was also good to here that the president of the United States was backing the effort to eliminate this ... More »
