Growing up has helped me understand that not everyone is like I am. Every person in this world has their own set of beliefs and ideals. I have never had a problem when it comes to meeting strangers; I mean at a certain point your best friend was a stranger once. I believe that meeting and interacting with new people is very important for our development in life. Culture does not make a difference for me when it comes to meeting people.
Manney Bustos Dr. Holly Stave SCRT 181W 8 September 2013 “Blurred Lines” and “Battered Bitches”: When Misogyny Becomes Expressive and Embracive “Bitch I’ma kill you! You don’t wanna fuck with me — Girls neither --- you ain’t nothing but a slut to me…”¹ this is the opening chorus of one of the many ballads sported by the infamous Eminem. To the tweens and good-girls-gone-bad, he is a misunderstood ‘bad boy’ sex god. To the overcompensated and rebel-high intellects, he is a performance breakthrough and ‘artistic voice for the ages’; the guys down the street still allude to him as poetic Greeks of old. As is the case for most viral phenomena, there are those who aren’t too keen on hip-hop Elvis’s lyrical prose.
A Question of Identity We, no doubt are aware that America is a melting pot of ethnic, persuasion and diversion. Americans often classify people by these measures. However, in certain circumstances these traditional measures do not apply. For example, how would one measure a Puerto Rican of Latino origin who possesses a “black as carbon skin”? (128) In America there exist a parody between skin color and ethnicity: race and ethnicity are often confused and creates questions of identity of the people subjected there under.
Most people have a basic understanding of obedience; however, many may fail to see the application and the impact of it in their own lives and in our society. Submission into conformity discourages the type of independence that is valued in our supposedly free-thinking world. Censorship is one of the major themes in Fahrenheit 451, and its impact is illustrated through submission in appearance, behavior and thought. This invites us to draw clear relationships between Ray Bradbury‘s novel and our current society. The association between appearance and social acceptance is already apparent in our lives.
Many of the problems that soldiers had with their commanders stemmed from race, where barriers existed regardless of the beliefs a person had. Nevertheless, racial turmoil was just as prominent in the United States, where problems continued to hinder a unified American front. It all began in 1954 when a court case, Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, overturned the doctrine of, “separate but equal,” established in another case, Plessy v. Ferguson (Murphy; Ivers). Afterwards, protests began that led to and bonded with the anti-war movement, essentially creating a single unified front. Opposition to the government was becoming an American tradition that would only escalate with the coming of the Vietnam War.
The separating of black and white has caused many problems in society and these inequalities are still felt today. Rebellion, revolution, boycotting and even riots, have led to tensions between the two races. Additionally, desegregating schools led to a learning gap between black and white students. The Constitution states that no state can make the law that takes away the rights and privileges of citizens making them immune to it. Desegregation of public places should be allowed because it is inequitable to separate humans based on the color or pigmentation of their skin.
So, partly as a result of forgetting that people online are still real, and partly because they don't know the conventions, well-meaning cybernauts, especially new ones, make all kinds of mistakes. The book Netiquette has a dual purpose: to help net newbies minimize their mistakes, and to help experienced cyberspace travelers help the newbies. The premise of the book is that most people would rather make friends than enemies, and that if you follow a few basic rules, you're less likely to make the kind of mistakes that will prevent you from making friends. The list of core rules below, and the explanations that follow, are excerpted from the book. They are offered here as a set of general guidelines for cyberspace behavior.
African Americans and the Media Today the media portrays African American males as hoodlums and thugs. The racism present in today’s media needs to be addressed and dealt with. African Americans suffer from institutional racism, are misrepresented in the news, and their portrayals on television are based on negative stereotypes that do not accurately portray reality. If there is not a major change in the media’s policy toward African Americans then this negative stereotype will continue to dominate popular opinion and eventually become an uncontested fact. “Television, or specifically media, is not merely a reflection of reality, it is a mechanism for the creation of reality.” (1) History has proven that the ruling classes in any society
For instance, the African American niche station BET (Black Entertainment Television) was found to, “represent a venue of minority voices, [but] it is also a source of problematic representations of gender” according to Melinda Messineo. This television station provides desired representations for their culture that could not of been easily afforded if on any other white dominated television station. With this said, automatically, their advertisements are going to be biased towards the African American stereotype. This would be just as true with any other television station with predominantly white viewership. Print media has always interpreted heterosexual culture over homosexual culture in America wrong simply because it is the stereotypical way of doing it.
