Violence and the’-isms’
Many describe violence as being a product of power and control. Choose one of the oppressed groups identified in our society (often referred to as the “-isms.”) These include racism, sexism, heteroism, ageism, ableism etc Describe how the “-ism” relates to a particular crime type. How is the oppressed population you chose viewed by society at large? How are they viewed in the criminal justice system? Are they over or under represented? Why? Provide at least 2 sources that you used during your research. Based on your research, what effect do you think these views have on the criminal justice process and how victims of crime are served? Conclude the paper with your own thoughts on how oppression relates to violence. Did you learn anything new about the population you chose? If so, what?
