Crips and Bloods: Made in America (USA: Stacey Peralta, 2008: 93 mins)
Remember you are supposed to write a 300+ response to the film. This is the first of two films we are going to watch. The second one is Inside Job.
The question I want us to consider when we watch these two films: Is when our society discusses crime, looting, theft, cocaine, prostitution, lack of morals, sociopaths....... what is the picture that is used (in its broadest sense)? who do we see as being representative of these anti-social actions on the largest scale? who is represented as the most serious threat to us as individuals and as a broader society?

Right now write your response to Crips and Bloods: Made in America and we will watch/discuss Inside Job next week.
