From Color of Violence
Disability in the New World ‘ by Nirmala Erevelies and Crime Punishment , and Economic Violence ‘ by Patricia Allard are two essays that ultimately made me think : exactly where do we draw the line Disability ‘ first of all , lacks any kind of cogency that the author attempted to have . It ‘s one of those articles that I can see where she was trying to go with it , she just didn ‘t quite get there . The bottom line ultimately becomes : Disabled people and women of color in Third World countries are [banner_entry_middle]
still being marginalized and oppressed Ooo-kaaaay .and then what ? Oh , the author ‘s further point being World governments are bad . Again .and ?
