W3221 Deviance and Social Control

Sep 2002

This is Sesame Street sociology... you'd learn more watching Dr. Phil on Oprah. The man forces you to memorize the tiniest details of pop psychology theories -- worst of all, he assigned _Who Moved My Cheese?_, a horrid condescending book which was basically written to make workers accept getting laid off. That alone should get him banned for life from this campus. This is a poor excuse for social theory. You want to explore the history and motives of prejudice? You want to talk about whose interests are served by isolating and scapegoating particular "deviant" groups? Well keep looking, cause you won't find that here.
