Hate Speech in a Juvenile Male Prison School and in US Schooling
Vaught, Sabina E.
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v44 n2 p239-264 Jun 2012
This article theoretically examines the meaning and function of hate speech in a high-security juvenile male prison school. Specifically, the article draws on data from an ethnographic study of this prison school site in order to map the institutional mechanisms of hate speech. Additionally, the article suggests these mechanisms are not anomalous to the particular site, but are rather reflective of larger systems of schooling that produce racialized academic failure, criminalization, and incarceration.
