Orange is the New Black

I was not in class today but I read the link off d2l and was appalled. I agree with some of the girl’s post before me. I feel like Piper (the white girl) was so stereotypical. White women are in jail all over the world for crimes that African American women commit too. I hate the fact that Piper’s mother thinks that her daughter is too good to be in jail. Anyone who commits crime deserves their fair share of time in jail. No one is above anyone and this needs to be fixed not just in this show but in reality. But I believe Piper stood up for herself and the other women in jail by saying “we made by choices, i’m no different than anybody else.” Second while reading about the show, I believe it is disconnected between races. White women and African American women are equally as beautiful and can be as guilty as the next person. They should not have made this seem like white’s were superior and have perfect bodies. That is a load of bullshit. White women do not leave jail and become a CEO. And African American women do not leave jail and fail at life and end back up behind bars. That is just so cliche. Its 2013 and we are all capable of being just as screwed up as the next person.
