Social identity

These chapters address issues relating to social identity (such as race, class and gender) and the legal system. In this way, they resonate with earlier articles we have engaged which examine race and gender as they pertain to policing. In what ways do these discussions build on the previous ones we have read? What do they add? What are your thoughts on the type of political activism in CJ process raised in the Butler article? By extension, what in your opinion is the relative importance of ‘objectivity’ vs. political consciousness (for instance, is it more important to try and seek out a measured, ‘objective’ truth, or is it more important to try to “do the right thing” when there is a subjective sort of situation where the boundary between morality and immorality is not so clear) ?
