I am currently researching the media's effects on the recidivism rate of African American Males and would appreciate your help and support in gaining a generalized depiction of your views on this issue.
Lol... After viewing some of your initial responses I have decided to edit my original post (but not withdraw my stance). Rather than attack my position, inquire about my ideology. Is that not one of the main problems in our society today? If you don't agree with something, help to educate them or broaden their awareness. Institutions don't teach people how to view life. There is a major difference between stating that an entire culture or race is screwed up than my prior statement that some of our brothas continue to make poor decisions.
What are you referring to as "recidivism"? How far have you gotten on your paper? What makes you think there is a correlation between recidivism and media?
