Hi, Social Problems Students,
This week we have looked at 2 related issues: Mass Incarceration and Employment Discrimination. We watched a short documentary produced by Al Jazeera, “Anatomy of An American City.”（find on google) We also reviewed the Goffman reading “On the Run” and Pager reading “The Mark of a Criminal Record.” Based on the ideas presented during lecture this past week, here is a question for you to write about:
What are the obstacles that ex-convicts and felons face when trying to improve their lives? How does “The Mark of a Criminal Record” address these issues? What structural limitations exist for ex-convicts and how does this shape their lives? How are individuals “branded” by the mark of a criminal record, and what are the long-term effects of being branded with such a negative credential?
