Ricky choses the hardest books imaginable. He believes in reading up on what others have to say about a difficult book, and then making up his own mind about it. He says that part of the reason he feels this way is because of his teacher, Mr. Buxton, who taught him Shakespeare in 10th grade. Ricky shares how Mr. Buxton met him one night to go over the text line by line, but he didn’t share the conclusion with Moody, he left that for him to figure out on his own. Reading Umberto Eco’s “Role of the Reader” in college, Ricky states that, “The reader completes the text, that the text is never finished until it meets this voracious and engaged reader.” Although there are critics who believe there is a right and a wrong way to ready books, Moody says, “I believe there is not now and never will be an authority who can tell me how to interpret, how to read, how to find the pearl of literary meaning in all cases.” Part 2.

Writing Pride Jared Drendel College Composition Hanna Holts Warner Pacific College Writing Pride _Finding Forrester_ is an excellent film. It was both exciting and compelling. I can really relate to this kind of film because I enjoy writing, and (like everyone else) I feel out of place around certain crowds of people. The main character, Jamal, was a black teenager who had amazing writing skills and was a good basketball player. Although people were ecstatic about his basketball abilities, Jamal’s true passion laid hidden in his journals.
Mr. Ross’ class made The Wave more powerful because everyone joined it and people thought it was the “right” thing to do. Both stories share a theme topic but have different messages. Fist Stick Knife Gun by Geoffrey Canada and “The Wave” by Morton Rhue both share the theme topic of influence. Teenagers can easily be persuaded into thinking something by the peers around them. “He who influences the thought of his times influences the times that follow” (Elbert Hubbard).
Cole is my favorite rapper at the moment, he just has a different appeal to him compared to all the new rappers. What I particularly enjoy about the album is the rawness and openness of it. The combination of Cole's transparency and charisma will have you dancing in the club, sympathizing with the starving artist, and cheering for the dreamer by the time you reach the end of the disc. Through his own life story he also touches on important issues within our communities today such as abortion, single parent homes, and the responsibilities it takes to be a man. If you're a fan of J. Cole then the album is everything you'd expect, just with a more personal and retail demeanor.

By being discriminated people feel sad, mad, or sometimes they might not care at all depending on their educational status. “Welcome back nigger” comments like these don’t bother uneducated gang members because the careless mind, focusing only on anything gang related which is what their life revolves. “In my younger years that wouldn’t have bothered me much. But with my new direction and expanded cautiousness, it struck me hard.” Education is the answer to a better understanding of things and a better
The hip hop culture started back more than a few decades ago, in the late 1960’s. It was used to express a rapper’s life through poetic lyrics. It was most popular in African American and Latino communities. It was a way for them to get away from their life problems and just enjoy life. “Rap music is very influential and can have positive or negative effects, according to some experts.” (Killion) ““To say there is no influence and no effect is naïve,” said Murray Forman, professor of media studies at Northeastern University in Boston.” (Killion) ““It is a known fact that hip-hop has taken over, in a sense, the mainstream youth culture,” said Emmett Price, a professor at Northeastern University in Boston, who teaches hip-hop culture.
Malcolm X was an articulate hustler in the streets. He was very popular when he was speaking but very frustrated with himself when it came to writing what he talked about. His biggest problem was his hillbilly language, Malcolm always used slang words, and knew if he would write the same way he spoke then no one would be able to read or understand what he was talking about. Malcolm was a very good speaker, people who heard him speak would be in shock when finding out he only had an eighth grade education, not knowing how much he had taught himself in prison. In the Charlestown Prison a man named Bimbi made Malcolm realize his knowledge.
Legalization of all Drugs The United States Government seems to be blind to the fact that the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is bringing the United States down and filling up our jails for criminal charges using drugs. Illegal drugs are the reason why crime is such a big issue in the United States, gangs are flourishing more so now than ever before. Although the DEA has been established for a while now, they still don’t having any regulation on what type of drug gets into the US, they crowd up our jails and waste a substantial amount of money that could be put to something profitable for the American people and economy. Even though the US government is aware that they are failing in the War on Drugs, they still are putting immense amounts
