Please write a minimum of one page, but no more than two pages addressing the following question:

•Boyle spends a great deal of time describing crimes and criminals and perceptions of both. For example, Jose Navidad and Dominick Flood are criminals who exploit women, but are perceived very differently by Delaney, Kyra, and the residents of Arroyo Blanco.

•This represents a deeper social practice in America of how we perceive crime and criminals based on race and class.

•Think about your own perceptions of crime and criminals. What are they? Where do those perceptions come from? What examples can you provide from history, the news, or your own life?
