  2. What observations did you make about race and social stratification during the film? What patterns emerged between the vendors and passersby? What (if any) stereotypes were applied to the vendors?
  3. Are the book vendors engaging in crime? Why or why not? Should they be allowed to engage in an activity associated with the underground (informal) economy? What impact do the vendors have on the neighborhood? Defend your answer with specific examples or theories discussed in class.
