2) INCARCERATION AND THE WAR ON DRUGS: Explain “Why mass incarceration matters” (Thompson) by briefly outlining drug laws and mass incarceration grounded in the Thompson article, and also referencing the documentary The House I Live In. How did drug use become racialized? How did actual usage statistics of drug use compare with the government and media portrayals of drug users? Explain how the usage of incarcerated peoples as cheap laborers affected labor conditions outside of prison. Who benefits financially from the expansion of the prison system/prison industrial complex and how is it an extension of neoliberal economic policy? Who is hurt by the prison system? Referencing The House I Live In, consider some of the larger societal questions raised by the crisis of mass incarceration/the war on drugs. Pose two or three larger questions you think we should be considering with relationship to this crisis. (Thompson, Bonilla Silva, Omi & Winant, The House I Live In)

5) COLOR-BLINDNESS: Compare Omi & Winant’s color-blind politics and Bonilla-Silva’s color-blind racism. According to these scholars, what does the idea of color-blindness have to do with neoliberalism? How, according to the course readings, is Obama’s presidency an extension of neoliberal and colorblind ideologies? A successful answer will place ideas of colorblindness and neoliberalism in a historical context with relationship to civil rights, immigration, incarceration, unions/labor, and politics. (Bonilla Silva; Omi & Winant; Lauter; Chávez; Plascencia; Rosa; Thompson; Bonacich and Applebaum; Lewis; Ryan)
