The main idea of the article I just read about policing of Latinos and the differences that are seen in stops made by non-Latino police and Latino drivers rather than when a non-Latino is stopped. According to the article, 69 police surveillance videos from the dashboards of cruisers were analyzed and when the results were in their hypothesis was supported. The videos showed that Latinos were stopped for much more correctable things, such as expired tags or having a headlight out, rather than speeding or reckless driving (Giles et al, 2012).

In her article, Laurie Penny (2013) speaks out about the recent magazine headlines: Miley Cyrus’ performance at the Video Music Awards. Penny questions the torment that Cyrus had recently been subject too, namely a letter written by Sinead O’Conner to Cyrus. Penny continues to state that many young women are faced with the same problem, whether to conform to societal norms and be a “good girl” as Miley Cyrus portrayed in “Hannah Montana” or whether to be able to use their bodies as a powerful weapon in their lives. She questions why we should be allowed to be seen in a certain way, and that is considered good, even something that is sought after, but if we act on these feelings and “objectify” ourselves we are seen as sluts, or like ideas. (Penny, 2013)
