so i’m still listening to these lectures on sociology 101 on iTunesU given by a prof at nyu.
for the most part, what I’m understanding sociology to be:
the white academic discipline responsible for co-opting and consuming
and regurgitating it pre-chewed, mushy, faintly disgusting bite-sized chunks for other people in power.
about 99.99999% of their insights appear to be summed up as
“we could have just asked marginalized group x, but instead we spent tons of time and money learning what a five year old from group x already knows”
