Dr. Harry Edwards, Professor of Sociology at the University of California - Berkeley is from East St. Louis.  Respect, blue.

small world brothers, my brah, Vern Andrews, did his dissertation in Sociology and Sports, and he went to Berkley for his undergrand.  I'm betting that Edwards guy was one of this professors.  Small world indeed...

It would've been hard to avoid Dr. Edwards.  He was the pioneer in Sociology and Sports.  He had to defend it as a worthy academic pursuit.  I wouldn't be surprised if he is one of the reasons your man went into Sociology and Sports.  He is just as blue describes him, flowing easily from academia to street and in between.  He was working as a consultant with the 49ers also.  One of my role models. 

and my dawg vern is the cat who got me into sociology.  Huh. So I guess we all had the same roll model?  Word.  8)

cool bluezulu!! i consider myself a sociologist ''of the life'' or something.
i read a lot of books, not all of them of sociology, i prefer literature or comics, ( hey for example the first story arc of black panther coulb be a perfect reading for 1st or 2nd year sociology students IMO)
i consider myself not a social scientific, but someone as you, who knows something something and has his own opinions of things.
i write essays too, but i don't mind if they are not strictly methodical or scientific, you know what i mean?

i got you.

i like a lot some post-modern theories, the deconstructivism school, you know.
it says that the sociology is no longer a tool to construct a speech or a theory.
it's just a tool to find the mistakes, defects, ''lies'' of all the other speeches and theories, political ones, philosohical ones, etc.

Sorry about the email bounce.  I have a new Yahoo email address now.  It is in my profile.  If anybody wants to contact me, they can use it.  I try to check my email at least once a day.

I hope to be fully back and interacting completely in a few more weeks.  I truly miss discussing politics and pop culture here.
