They also would know what to expect from the way he describes this thrill ride if someone who read it has never windsurfed before. His tone is more of passionate, and as if he were explaining a favorite hobby that he enjoys doing. He even uses a technique Carmen figura to give the poem a sense of surfing out and into the shore. From the first line he can have you visualize a first person view as to what it looks like while riding. “It rides upon the wrinkled hide of water, like an upturned hull of a small canoe or kayak.” (1-3) He even throws in some images referring to how it moves “Then a puffed up right angle of wind pushes it forward, out into the bay, where suddenly it glitters into speed,” (9-11) “Glitters” is a good choice word for speed!
Groups such as the KKK didn’t like to scare blacks into trying to leave town by putting up signs, burning homes down and killing people throughout the entire country, to show people the stand for what they believe in. Blacks were viewed in the 1960s as horrible people, if someone saw a black person on TV or walking around their first impression would be what’s he or she doing here or there. The 1960s were a time where the world was changing. Music was changing, politics were changing, and people were changing. But one problem seemed to remain in society, racism.
On the beach, for example, you can go sailing, fishing, surfing, skiing, or take advantage of the sun and lie in the sand to get tan, or even in some cases feed sharks and swim with dolphins. My favorite thing to do at the beach is just relax, and let all you worries just wash away. On the other hand, in a city you can visit different sites such as museums, theaters, important buildings, downtown, among other things. This means that you have many places to know and you will need much more time and organization in a city than on the beach. I'm not really an organized person so the city probably wouldn't be a good place for me to go.
How the Vietnam War Influenced Americans Throughout the 1970's, the Vietnam War was the influence of many different changes which emerged in America. These sudden trends that came about in the US caused people to live a different life style. The war introduced new things to the country, from songs to events to artists. Many people sought to voice their protests against the war in form of song. These songs inspired an entire population, which impacted America's music during the 1970's.
Evidence of the protest song’s prominence during times of stress and upheaval is pervasive in every major movement in American History. From the American Revolution up until the Vietnam War, songwriters have looked for ways to express their feelings about social issues and government decrees. Country Joe McDonald’s “I Feel like I’m Fixen to Die Rag”, more commonly known as “The Fish Cheer”, became “the most famous anti-war song in the country” (Lynskey, 87) through black humor which cleverly depicts a sense of hopelessness and loss for the young generation during the Vietnam war. As a protest song, “The Fish Cheer” became so infectious one couldn't help but sing along to its iconic tune. This compelled a sense of unity, which in turn helped groups organize to change how the nation viewed the war.
The October 6th debate between Clinton and Dole capitalized on the areas of the culture wars that the two disagreed upon, most predominantly being the youth’s drug use and the after-shocks within the education system and national security. Over the course of two decades the culture wars had evolved into an illustration of the clash between post-WWII cultural attitudes and the rebellious attitudes of the Vietnam War youth, a fight between the parents and their rowdy children. The Vietnam War became the initial catalyst in the emergence of the counterculture. The movement was viewed as a fight against the traditionalist views in society (Klatch, 134). Klatch defines the characteristics of the counterculture as the “dress, music, drugs, sexuality and ‘alternative lifestyles” that those involved became known for.
The songs that were written by these bands helped to transform the public view of psychedelic drugs for generations to come. Soon after the LSD craze passed, mainly due to governments war on drugs, cocaine became the choice drug amongst American upper and middle classes. In the 1960’s what many believed was a powerful tool for art, music, and creativity in general began to sweep the country. As many youths became increasingly frustrated with the views and laws put into effect by an older generation, they felt a strong need to express themselves as individuals and not just as lower parts of corporate America. Race relations were still very poor throughout America and a younger generation felt as though they had seen enough hate and intolerance to last them a lifetime.
\ Noel Rivera English 102 Prof- McNamara Rap music promotes violence! The violent effect of rap music has been proven time and time again that it not only promotes but encourages violence and unlawfulness to it audience. Rap music in the 20th century has become a part of American culture and its message to the youth is connected with popular yet misguided phrases like “Get rich or die trying”, “Money over Bitches”, “Thug life”, and the most popular, “F**k the police!”. This language in rap music is something that parents need to consider before letting their child listen to their favorite Hip-Hop artist. However, this wasn’t always the case.
After sunbathing for quite some time, it is time to do another one of my favorite activities. It is now time to go swimming in the cool, salty ocean. If my best friend Michaela happens to be with me, we love racing each other out into the endless ocean. There are some occasions that I am at the beach by myself, and in that case I like to swim out in the water a little ways and then just float on my back and look up at the white, fluffy clouds. The day at the beach is almost over, but I still have time to do one more activity that relaxes me.
