This is good insight, George. This writing talks about how Atlanta’s transportation system might have roots in slavery and how redlining keeps inequality alive. How can we fix these problems and make things fair for everyone, like what he says?

Using your lens to analyze the reading was really smart and I think it really set your research up nicely. I also like the comparison of Atlanta to Philly I thought that was a great connection. What made you choose a Marxist lens to analyze the text?

The Marxist lens tag drew to this post, as I haven’t seen anyone use this Literary lens to analyze the traffic jam article. The quote you pulled from the article was very interesting, I believe it added to your claim. The claim also helped me to think about the economic factors of urban planning. I’m curious to know what key words you used to create your photo? I believe it captures the opinion piece very well.

I like how you Included your source from the article “Traffic Jam”. I also like how you included the Marxism theory in this article to connect to the overall perspective of traffic jam. The image you created for traffic jam is also cool as well,

I like how you analyze the inequity in Atlanta’s transportation development as depicted in Traffic Jam from a Marxist perspective. Your ability to relate the images to Atlanta’s past of redlining and wage inequalities. Additionally, I like how your image complements your analysis of Traffic Jam.

I like how your cover feels so real. I also like how the image truly conveys the struggle from one side and the privileges within the other. The stark contrast is powerful and thought-provoking. Your visual representation effectively captures the complex dynamics at play. Well done in creating such an impactful and meaningful cover.

I notice The Traffic Jam article, connecting Atlanta’s history of slavery and transportation. The Marxist perspective highlights power dynamics and class struggles, like redlining. Comparing with Philadelphia deepens understanding of systemic inequality. This picture looks great and really relates to the article you wrote.

I like how your analysis uses a Marxist perspective to examine inequality in Atlanta’s transportation development shown in Traffic Jam. A strength you have is connecting the imagery to Atlanta’s history of slavery, pay gaps, and redlining. However, the comparison to Philly could be expanded more explicitly. Overall, it thoughtfully explores how economic forces and oppression shaped the landscape.

I like the use of the marxism lens for this reading and think it allows a significant connection between the poor and rich at the time to be shown. Your photo you used looks similar to the original picture’s highway. I like the connection of Philadelphia to Atlanta and the finding of both cities having significant systemic inequalities that still affect them today.
