Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Menace to society

with one comment

Monday for one of my classes we watched “Menace to Society” Viewing this film showed how wanting to live a certain lifestyle can make you do things that aren’t write to get the life style you want. Today in the media you don’t hear alot about these issues. Do you think its because they aren’t happening as much as they were back then or is it just the media jus doesn’t broadcast this gang related behavior anymore?

  1. I dont know the answer to your question but I do know that all of people suffer from that “keeping up with jones” syndrome. Alot of times, especially with minorities its like they can never reach or assimilate into white culture as much as they try. Its almost like te whole glass ceiling theory. In the end minorities wont ever reach the socially accepted status compared to whites and when they do they will always be considered the exception despite many minorities making it in life through the set backs and continous struggle.

    TRULY SAD!
