Saleem had received bad YouTube comments after he had posted a video online that had some people happy and some people upset. Saleem had said “I’ve stuttered for as long as I can remember.” The people were annoyed by his accent, which made him feel bad about himself. Saleem didn’t care about what the people had said, so instead he continued to work on part 2 of the video, but he couldn’t. Saleem had explained that every time he would sit down and edit, he would think back on his childhood when he would have a hard ti...

...as a person not for how you act.
Overall being normal is a good thing, if you can overcome people’s opinions towards you then you should be fine. As long as you can understand Saleem’s bad YouTube comments towards him, how color is important in the Ancient Greeks and how it’s ok to be normal. Saleem had mentioned that it’s ok to be normal, and I still agree with this today, because like I had mentioned before I have my own style of how I wear my socks. I could personally change my color of socks to normal, for example black, grey, white. But I’m not going to do that because that’s not me and you should always be yourself. Just like what Saleem had said “And so we must continuously challenge our notion of normal, because doing so is going to allow us as a society to finally see the sky for what it is.”

- Has there ever been a time where I felt like an outsider. An outsider is someone who doesn 't fit into a group of some sort. Usually, I feel like an outsider when it comes to my clothes and how I dress. Everyone would question me about what I would have on specifically in school. I attended Cordova High and to be honest I should have expected that. I have been living here in this area and I rarely see any contrasting modes. It would surprise me seeing something that I would not be used to seeing and it would bring such a relief.... [tags: Mind, Thought, Protagonist, Idea]

- How can someone who lived hundreds of years ago have such a lasting impact on individuals throughout history. Today, Rumi’s influence can be seen throughout humanity. Even though he has been deceased for more than eight hundred years, he is the most widely read poet. Rumi’s poetry reflects the spiritual, political, and social aspects of his time as well as these same characteristics in modern society. With two of his poems, entitled “Those Who Don’t Feel This Love” and “One Who Does What the Friend Wants Done,” Rumi successfully demonstrates his keen cognizance of these aspects in mankind....

- Ekman makes a very important point to highlight the landscapes in her story. She uses her writing to make this vivid images of natural landscapes, and when I was trying to think of a comparison for this story, I though about that very concept. In Don Quixote Cervantes offers this imagery as well in his stories. Landscapes come into mind when I think about the windmill scene in the plains. Both works give off great visuals of the landscapes in their respective stories. The thing is though in these examples both Quixote and Ekman make it sound like they are living in their own fantasies, and that’s where I see comparisons in their sections....

- Critical Response: Given the three possible responses from the book, I feel like #2 is the most ethical of the three. However, I feel like all three aren’t satisfactory ways to treat this situation. I will analyze them one by one, then give my opinion of what the salesperson should do. 1. I felt that this response was the least ethical. Firstly, the salesperson would have taken advantage of the customer for personal gain. Secondly, a salesperson should not assume anything about the customer. If a salesperson were to assume anything, it should be through analysis of the customer’s needs....

- Do you ever feel like there is a wall closing in on you. No echoes, no voices, and no way out. I have felt that way since sixth grade up until my freshman year at North High. Bullying and harassments are ego boosters, nothing more, and nothing less. However, victims forget they can go talk to a family member, counselor, teacher or a friend by letting them handle the situation. I was lucky enough to finally speak up upon my own experience with bullying and harassment. I still remember my first day of sixth grade as clear as a shiny icicle on a cold, windy and bitter winter day.... [tags: Family, Grandparent, Abuse, Class I railroad]

- Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and Don DeLillo’s White Noise were written over a century apart. In that time there was a significant change in the mentality between what it was to be an American and how much of a person’s identity was a part of their nationality. Over time, the American people have created a more negative outlook on society. While Whitman remains more positive and proud of being an American, DeLillo has adapted a more cynical perspective. There are several poems from Walt Whitman’s collection of Leaves of Grass that portray his particular belief in the American identity.... [tags: United States, Walt Whitman, Don DeLillo]

- Recently, I participated in a debate about how do I feel the media (television, books, and movies) reflected images I want my children to see. The discussion lead to diversity. I mentioned that children are too busy trying to prove their blackness to embrace diversity. Embracing diversity in my perception has been seen as selling out. As a black woman, I struggle with fitting in. It depends on the crowd. Sometimes I have to surrender my blackness sometimes my feminity. The television show Blackish lightly treads on issues of proving blackness (black nationalism) and diversity.... [tags: Black people, African American, Race, White people]

- I draw my feet up into the leather recliner. Hug my knees to my chest. The chair is sage green. The wall’s a boring beige color. The room is freezing. I don’t know why they keep it so cold. Maybe so we won’t stay any longer than we have to. If I could I’d stay forever, because here is better than home with Frank. Dr. Beaker slides his pen in the pocket of his shirt and shuts my swollen file, laying it on the floor by his chair. He leans forward, elbows on his knees, his hands cupped. Never has he looked at me so solidly in the eyes.... [tags: Debut albums, 2007 singles, 2006 albums]

- Section Three: Black Like Me. (pg.159) If some spark does set the keg afire, it will be a senseless tragedy of ignorant against ignorant, injustice answering injustice-a holocaust that will drag the innocent and right-thinking masses of human beings. (pg.160) If we could not accept our somewhat different practice of racist suppression of black Americans, how could we ever hope to correct it. (Pg, 174) As a person who lived almost constantly in both communities, I could foresee nothing but trouble.... [tags: Black Like Me Essays]
