Sociological Song - "Crooked Smile" by J. Cole (featuring TLC)

Last semester in Introduction to Sociology, a student sent me the video for "Crooked Smile" by J. Cole (featuring TLC). He sent it to me around the time we discussed mass incarceration and the War on Drugs. In my course, I introduce students to the work of Michelle Alexander. It's a powerful and emotional video. The video is dedicated to Aiyana Stanley-Jones and concludes with the message "AND PLEASE RECONSIDER YOUR WAR ON DRUGS." Special thanks to my student (Deion) for making me aware of this video.
