Speech on Incarceration

The Scenario

You and several colleagues at your non-profit are working on a research project focused on the relationship between race and incarceration. As your research progressed, you realized that the U.S. incarcerates far more of its population than any other modern, industrialized nation and that certain racial minorities are incarcerated at much higher rates than their white counterparts.

Your Task

You have been invited to give a short speech on whether incarceration should continue to be our go-to punishment in the U.S. at the upcoming meeting of an advocacy organization for prison reforms.

Your speech will, at a minimum, address all of the following questions:

What percentage of U.S. adults are currently incarcerated? What is their demographic make-up (age, sex, race, class)? (5 points)
What justification(s) for punishment does incarceration meet? (5 points)
Why and how is race an important component of the discussion of mass incarceration? How does white privilege factor in? (15 points – for full points use s sociological theory)
Why and how is class an important component of the discussion of mass incarceration? (15 points – for full points use conflict theory)
Should we continue to utilize incarceration as our go-to form of punishment in the U.S.? Why or why not? Some Questions to Consider: Is it effective? What positive/negative effects does it have? Is it doled out fairly? (10 points)
Feel free to be as creative as you’d like!

Responding to a classmates thread requires both the addition of new ideas and analysis. A particular point made by the classmate must be addressed and built upon by your analysis in order to move the conversation forward. Thus, the response post is a rigorous assignment that requires you to build upon the thread to develop deeper and more thorough discussion of the ideas introduced. As such, replies that merely affirm, restate or unprofessionally quarrel with the previous thread(s) and fail to make a valuable, substantive contribution to the discussion will receive appropriate point deductions.
