One quote must come from gang leader for a day, and the second quote can be from a source of your choice.
"I realized that if I truly wanted to understand the complicated lives of black youth in inner-city Chicago, I had only one good option: to accept J.T.'s counsel and hang out people. So I headed back to the Lake Park projects to see if I could once again find J.T. and his gang," (Venkatesh, 2008, p. 22). In a 350 word initial post, respond to the following: Do you agree with Sudhir's impression from the quote above? Why or why not? What is implied (by Sudhir, and earlier, J.T., himself) by this idea of "hanging out" with people in order to learn about them? What can a person learn about a different culture from simply "hanging out" with members of that culture? Pull one specific example from the first two chapters of Gang Leader where Sudhir is hanging out with J.T. and his crew, and describe its significance in terms what Sudhir learns about gangs, gang life, and to a greater extent, the poor in Chicago. In your initial post please use TWO QUOTES to support your ideas. One quote must come from Gang Leader for a Day, and the second quote can be from a source of your choice. Your quotes (in-text citations) and works cited (at the end of your initial post) must be properly formatted in APA style. Please refer back to APA formatting resources from Week #4.
