What do we deserve as people living here in the United States? Should people be treated unfairly because of their race, sexuality or religion? I don’t think so. Like the human beings that we all are, we should a
I found your post very interesting. Specifically when you said “This is the reason why I’m saying that people should accept everybody so people like Ashely won’t feel scared of being outside and be secure of who she is. Another example is that all of the immigrants that Hispanics right now are confused and worried because they don’t know if they are going to be deported.” I agree that our government needs to make a change and that social changes as well will help people feel more included in the United States. You bring up many good points about the United States’ past, as well as current events. I would like to read more about this subject and I look forward to reading your next post.
I loved reading this article. I liked how you compared recent laws from the past to the present that were discriminating; like the Black Codes and the transgender ban in the military. As the media talks about immigration, we all have heard what each party wants to do. One side wants stricter immigration laws and the other wants little immigration law. Do you think there are laws and policies that the parties can both agree? Is there a way that laws and policies can be both strict, yet help immigrants become citizens and fulfill their goals for a better life? I would love to hear your opinion!
Fantastic article. You write with a passion that is clearly expressed throughout the writing and you provide many potential points of interest to draw the reader in. It is clear that there are societal norms and standards that people will discriminate against specific races, but just because it is regularly done does not make it humane. Denying people from rights simply because they differ physically from another race is not a valid reason. I really appreciated your article and thank you for sharing your opinion on this issue. Great Job!
I think that this post is very thought provoking and is a great example of the stigma and issues that Trump is causing. He is making americans feel unsafe purely because of who they are. I think that america as a whole should take a second look at how we view minorities and make this a better place for them because america was a melting pot to get away from places that didnt accept people and have the “american dream”.
Thank you for your post I found it to be very compelling! I agree with you that “people should have equal rights so everybody would treat each other with respect.” I also agree that the importance of equality and human rights to your organisation. Equality and human rights are core to achieving national and local performance outcomes which aim to improve the quality of life and opportunities for all people across the world. Here is a website that I think you might enjoy!
I am captivated by your post “ Our African Values. In Texts and in Real Life” because you talked about how immigrants are coming to this country to have a better chance to make a change in their lives by achieving their American Dreams. Some immigrants are learning to live with fear every day because they are scared of being dep…[Read more]
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
