This week, we spent a lot of time discussing mass incarceration, the war on drugs, and racial inequity. In recent times, a racial justice social movement has emerged directly challenging what Michelle Alexander calls, “The New Jim Crow.” Black Lives Matter has become increasingly criticized for its untraditional tactics such as disrupting traffic and interrupting political speeches. What social (not psychological) conditions motivate movement organizers to adopt such methods of institutional change? How do your social identities (race, class, gender, sexuality, etc.)/experiences shape your perception of this movement and its related tactics? How might you perceive the movement differently if you possessed a different social identity?
