You Need Sociology to Understand Ferguson

In this piece, Nathan Palmer argues that without sociology we cannot fully understand events like the tragic killing of Mike Brown by officer Darren Wilson. Over the next few weeks thousands of students across the country will start a sociology 101 class. Most will not be sociology majors and many will walk into class wondering, “why on earth am I required to take this class?” The answer is, at least in part, so you can understand the world around you instead of merely making sense of it. All of us make sense of the world around us, but that doesn’t mean that we understand why people behave the way they do or why things happen day-to-day.

The Missing 43: Mexico's Disappeared Students (2014) What happened to the 43 students who went missing in Southern Mexico in September of this year?

The Missing 43: Mexico's Disappeared Students (2014)

The Vice News produced documentary examines the mass disappearance of the young men who were all training to teach the youth of their country, as well as the tragedy and controversy surrounding their disappearance. As sure as the news coverage, people's movements, and conspiracy theories have caused many questions to continue to be asked about the case throughout Mexico and abroad, you'll have many questions of your own once you reach the end of this documentary. The Missing 43 is shot in a news footage style and without any attempt at sensationalism; the documentary captures raw and shocking imagery, or at least imagery that would have shocked audiences across America before we were, as a whole, less desensitized than we are in modern times.

Anti-Arab Racism in the USA: Where it Comes From and What it Means for Politics

Since 9/11 there has been a lot of criticism of America's involvement in the middle east. Yet there has been little analysis of how America treats citizens of Arab or middle eastern origin within its own borders. Steven Salaita explores the reality of Anti-Arab racism in America. He blends personal narrative, theory and polemics to show how this deep-rooted racism affects everything from legislation to cultural life, shining a light on the consequences of Anti-Arab racism both at home and abroad.Uniquely, the book shows how ingrained racist attitudes can be found within the progressive movements on the political left, as well as the right.
