Okay, so I’m taking a sociology class this semester called Contemporary Social Problems. Basically some stuff on various social problems these days, theories about social problems, how a condition becomes defined as a problem, etc. Our first project is a poster. Kind of a propaganda-ish thing, a poster that one would put on display if one was attempting to call attention to a social problem. One difficulty: I don’t have a clue what problem to make my poster about. I’ve considered religious intolerance, racial issues, animal shelters, and a couple others… I just cannot decide.
So here’s the question. What social problems are there today that people are really concerned about. I don’t think is excessive “homework-helping”, as I’m not asking for any specific poster concepts or anything, basically I just would like to see what you guys think are important social problems that deserve to be poster-ficated, and then I’ll do research and stuff and come up with a fabulous poster-worthy idea. Plus I’m also just kinda curious. So here we go.
What do you consider social problems in today’s society that need more attention?
