We can not let small crimes go by because they eventually become bigger crimes later on • To deal with it: come down with a heavy hand.

Although the 17 year old was not involved directly at all, he was sentenced 15 years for not calling 911 and was already considered a “gang associate” because of the family he was born into • If you are a gang associate, you can get an “enhancement” 1 Monday, May 23, 2016 - What might have been considered a misdemeanor, they can up to a felony • Short clip: “The House I Live In” Lecture 18 - May 25, 2016 - Final Exam Info. • 2 Sections - Identifying individuals/acronyms (HeLa, etc.) - Match term and definition or simplistically answer - Long essay responses - Choose 3 out of 4 or 5 • Essay will be based on Galicia’s work • Definitions of race/racism again - Race: the phenotype/appearance of individuals grouped together - Racism: the belief/idea/notion that there are fundamental differences between groups expressed through behavior, illness, aptitude, etc. • Prejudicial/biased actions, policies backed by state institutional economic power - Finish precise by final class next week 2
