    1. why is, are so many working class whites driving toward the hard right and wanting to support, you know, what seemed to us kind of insane policies? Well, people are desperate. They're looking for the answer. They're looking for the problem, and they're being told the problem is immigrants. And we don't look at wealth as the problem.

    1. For the usage in society, see Second-class citizen.
      1. Ironic that this reference is ostensibly about the usage of "first-class citizen" in society, yet it links to a seemingly-mismatched (by name only, that is) article, entitled "second-class citizen".

      2. Ironic that the first-class (unqualified) article is about the figurative meaning of "citizen" used in computer science, and that the page describing first-class and second-class status of the more literal citizens in society is relegated to what I kind of think is a second-class position in the encyclopedia (because it takes the #2 position numerically, even though it is (at least as is implied in this reference) also about first-class citizens (though the word "first-class" does not appear a single time in that article, so maybe this reference is the one that is more ironic/incorrect).

    1. Many black business owners blamed the problem on lowerclass peoples’ affliction with the “white man’s psychology,” namely, that migrantshad been brainwashed into thinking they had to shop in a white-owned store, eitherbecause whites would punish them if they didn’t or because white stores were nec-essarily higher quality than black ones.48Whether this was the case or not, therewere several other things complicating black consumers’ willingness to shop inblack-owned businesses.

      Breakout Group 02: The evidence above demonstrates the "integration of rural Southern culture into urban African American consciousness" where foodways are a "natural vehicle for the expression…of freedom" because it shows the complication within the black community. Where an expression of freedom is an African American having a grocery store. One would think that the Black owned grocery store would be successful due to "black authenticity" but many Black people feared blacklash from White people for even attempting to be independent but also because many Black people were brainwashed to believe that the white businesses have better quality products over the black owned business.

    1. That is, we envision a cuisine and an attendant lifestyle that is more au-thentic and less stressful, more "natural," than the world in which we live.

      ~Group 4~ Anne Meneley is discussing how olive oil is becoming an increasingly more sought after ingredient because of its praise as a natural ingredient. Though olive oil is seen as a traditional and authentic ingredient, due to media, it is an industrialized product and is only widespread because of that- despite the misconceptions to make people think otherwise. There are many reoccuring themes within the article such as distinction, naturalness, processed, and industrialization to name a few. The quote that is highlighted connects to themes because people truly seem to worship this idea of being and living naturally. The idea of being natural also includes eating naturally and there's this distinction between people who live naturally and who don't. People who idolizes this natural lifestyle seem to think they are being authentic when they are failing to realize that transformations and growth are necessary. Meneley seems to want the reader to think about what industrialization and processed foods mean exactly.

    1. Graeber has a great deal more to say about money and its unique capacityto store value, and also about the ideology of the market with its highlyindividuated notion of human desires (e.g. 2001: 257). His analysis opensup an intriguing question. If in market societies money is a measure, amedium and above all an end in itself (2001: 66) and value-for-moneydominates what we conventionally call the economy, how do other valuescoexist with this monetarized realm and its rationality of quantificationand self-interest? Graeber points out that, in our view of society, marketprinciples can be balanced by family values and altruistic charity (2001:257), but he views these as just ‘two sides of the same false coin’

      In this capitalistic society money makes the world go round. Graeber has a pessimistic view in regards to the idea that family and altruism can balance out greed because he believes that they are in direct conflict to capitalism. Graeber expands further on his thoughts

    1. Which type of sampling is better here: with or without replacement? Justify your answer.

      With replacement simply has more "bootstrapping" power than without correct? But with a large enough sample is there any other effect replacement or non-replacement has on the "outcome?" Or is the effect insignificant with large enough samples.
