Why does the author criticize Obama’s speech about AWOL fathers?

 

Alexander, Michelle. The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. New York, NY: The New Press, 2010.

 

1. Why does the author criticize Obama’s speech about AWOL fathers?

 

2. What astonishing statistic does the author present about slavery in 1850 and Blacks in the correctional system?

 

3. Why does the author compare the disfranchisement of Blacks today with disfranchisement during 1870 and the Jim Crow era?  

 

4. Look at the first two full paragraphs closely on page 176 above the section, “States of Denial”. Why is it now normal for so many people to view the mass incarceration of Blacks as non-disturbing or even necessary?

 

5. On page 177 in the last paragraph, Alexander states, “Denial is facilitated by persistent…racialized media imagery…” This is a very powerful and underestimated fact in the Black community! “Racialized media imagery” about Blacks which helps to put minds at ease about Blacks in prison through recurring stereotypes in the media (songs, videos, television) is often supported by Black students in this class. How have Black stereotypes impacted your life?

 

6. Look at the last sentence in the second paragraph on page 178: “The widespread and mistaken…” Why does Alexander argue that this is a misbelief and it keeps us in denial?      

 

7. What is your personal definition of racism? Compare your definition to Alexander’s explanation of it beginning in the last paragraph on page 178 to the bottom of page 179. What did you learn from her discussion about racism?

 

8. In your own eloquent words, summarize the three phases of entrapment for Blacks which Alexander describes from pages 180-182.

 

9. According to Alexander on page 183, how has the criminal justice system changed from never operating as a system of comprehensive control over Blacks to one which manages and controls Blacks?

 

10. How are White drug offenders dealt with in the criminal justice system?

 

11. What is the connection between Jim Crow laws and conservatives during the 1970s and 1980s in the section called, “Historical Parallels”?

 

12. What are the similarities presented by Alexander to past and present discrimination waged against Blacks in the section called, “Legalized discrimination” (186-187); and the similarities to past and present political disfranchisement in the section called, “Political disfranchisement” (187-188)?

  • Interpret at least two genre conventions exhibited in your chosen feature-length film that help classify it in the selected genre. Be sure to provide a specific example of each convention (e.g., a particular scene or plot component).
  • Provide an example of a third convention from your chosen feature-length film and explain how this convention expands the boundaries of the specified genre.

Your paper should be organized around a thesis statement that focuses on how your chosen feature-length film both aligns with and expands upon your chosen genre. Review the Week Two sample paper, which provides an example of a well-developed analysis as well as insight on composition.

The paper must be 800 to 1200 words in length (excluding title and reference pages), and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

You must use at least two scholarly sources other than the textbook to support your claims.

List the elements of disparate treatment and apply them to this case.

Scenario

Janet Johnson, an African American woman, has been working at the Tennessee Hydroelectric plant for 15 years. During that time, his performance reviews have been exemplary. She decided to apply for the new plant foreman position. Although she felt that she was eminently qualified for the position, she also was growing tired of a certain good old boy culture at the plant. For years, the plant has had a culture of highly lewd “jokes,” and many of the employees had also engaged in inappropriate touching of female employees. The plant had an anti-harassment policy on record, but Janet’s boss shrugged and said “boys will be boys” when she reported the harassment to him.

Competition for the position was fierce. But ultimately, Jose Martinez, a Chilean man, received the position. Jose had 7 years of experience. Unbeknownst to the applicants the promotion board secretly ran a credit check on the applicants. Janet credit score came in as lower as average, and this factored into the board’s decision. Although he met the qualifications of the position, one of the hiring managers told Janet in confidence that Janet was the most qualified person for the job. And the other managers had applied a racial preference on Jose’s behalf due to there never having been a Latino manager at the plant even though Latino’s represented 35% of employees at the plant.  Janet sues the plant for disparate treatment, disparate impact, and sexual harassment under Title VII.

Questions

  1. List the elements of disparate treatment and apply them to this case.  Can Janet prove a prima facie case? How would the plant rebuff these charges? Who would ultimately prevail?
  2. List the elements of a disparate impact case and apply them to this case? Will Janet prevail on this charge?
  3. List the elements of the sexual harassment case and apply them to this case? Can the plant establish an affirmative defense?
  4. If the plant argues that it applied a racial preference to Jose to correct a manifest imbalance at the plant of underutilization of certain minorities, will the plant prevail? Why or why not?
  5. Was it legal to use the credit check as a factor in the promotion decision the way that it was done here? Why or why not?
