She fails to recognize that an African-American is a person. As the novel continues, Huckleberry Finn demonstrates that he does not live by society’s morals when he acknowledges that Jim is not just a piece of property, but that he is human: “I knowed he was white inside” (Twain 341). In the aforementioned quote, Huck acknowledges that all people are the same on the inside, whether or not they are the same on the outside. By going against society’s belief that African-Americans aren’t human Huckleberry proves that he can create his own morals. The second time Huckleberry Finn shows readers that he creates his own morals is when he agrees to keep Jim’s escape a secret: “‘Well, I did.
Many EMG children also do not have that initial push of how important education is for them. They may have a fatalistic view on where they see themselves fitting into to society which may rub on to their children. Sugarman did a lot of research on this and found it as being one of the top reasons why children can fail in education. Children who believe their future is already predetermined will not put as much focus on education as they think they will only get working-class jobs. As parents may be new to the UK or not speak English they may not understand the educational system and the application process.
Based off this definition the Anna Todd Jennings scholarship is not being racist. Yes the scholarship is only for white people, but not because Caucasian is the superior race. Daniels says, “The Anna Todd Jennings scholarship is a subtle but nonetheless dangerous expression of racism”. This statement is false because if every race specific concept was addressed as racism, the world would turn mad. Most races have scholarships offered just to them, so having one for white people should not cause a problem.
Many people don’t know that 64% of students incorporate text language into their writing. Text messaging affects many things in student’s literacy. In this article you will find the problem, effects, and solution of texting and literacy. Texting can cause many problems in teen’s literacy.

But the thing is it is a good explanation to language, but it´s not applied to Black English and you will understand why. It may look strong and deep to emotive and lay readers, but according to famous American dictionaries like Macmillan and Cambridge, Baldwin´s definition to Language is not consistent with them. Macmillan Dictionary said about dialect: “a way of speaking a language that is used only in a particular area or by a particular group”. Is that not exactly how to describe Black English? Despite the fact that, Black English is a style or types of words used by specific group, the African American, it is not a system of communication complex enough to be considered a language.
In order to lessen the problem of racial tension in America it is crucial for one to recognize the similarities between minorities and non-minorities. In the essay "What White Publishers Won't Print" Zora Neale Hurston claims that the white majority is not interested in the common lives of the minority population. She asserts that this lack of interest by the majority heightens the racial tension in America. To overcome racial tension in America, these stereotypes of minorities can only be replaced by truly understanding how much the white majority has in common with their minority members of society. Although some will argue that there are no similarities present when comparing minorities to the white majority, many of these people do not want to believe that minorities live a normal life just like the majority population.
Students might want to drop out because they are struggling in school, getting bullied, have a health issue, have personal family problems, or just have a planned out future that doesn't require a high school diploma. Making teens do something they absolutely don't want to do, especially after they are 16, can result in even worse outcomes. “Efforts to raise the age usually come up against the argument that requiring students to stay in school when they no longer want to be there is disruptive to the other students and not fair to the teacher”. Thats a very knowledgeable statement because its true that when teens want to drop out, they want to drop out before they are 18, so they are most likely going to be careless and disrespectful at school. Some teens have personal reasons that are sometimes urgent, and staying in school isn't an option.
There are a couple of reasons that teens shouldn’t de allowed to vote. Firstly they don’t have the knowledge of politics.

Their judgment is very poor and they only see a part of the politics and then they vote, whitout thinking about the reasons and fact of this.
After the Second World War the black civil rights have legally improved but the does not stop the white race stop being racist. There was still discrimination between the two races. As there are not immediate black officials the white ones continue to discriminate as there is no one to put them into prison. Legally the black race should be treated as equals by the white race. Laws were made after the war forbidding segregation and discrimination, but these laws were not carried out.
I could not really think of one thing that the photographs made me want to do. The first photo “American Gothic” 1942 by Gordon Parks reminded me of the importance of racial equality. The photograph also reminded me of how men and women in America no matter what color skin color they have everyone should be treated equally. But the photograph did not really persuade me to want to go out and fight for equality. The photos on the next page 526 entitled “1960” and “2001” were just comical to me and did not
