    • I like how you are addressing this cause because this is really important. I agree that the government needs to make a move towards granting Asian American rights. These events such as shootings, racial slurs, and physical violence are all important to address because this can get out of hand and become an even bigger problem around the world. Yes, I agree this generation is always talking about being united and accepting one another but still have racial issues. We do need to focus on ending the pandemic instead of other things. Thank you for addressing this problem, Aaliyah.

    • Dear Aaliyah , I completely agree how it can be ironic that the government is known for protecting it’s people’s rights although more and more we see hate crimes towards other races. More people need to be aware of how it is not right to target people over there race and how dangerous and unsafe those people can feel based on what the government is allowing to happen. The government needs to address such a topic as Asian-american hate crimes and all other hate crimes in general so they can find people accountable for their wrong actions and so it will influence people to support one another.

    • Aaliyah, I completely agree with everything you said in your discussion post, especially when you said, “It is ironic how a generation that says to be more accepting and united is still having racial issues.” I think it is particularly important to hold our generation accountable for their actions, as what we do now will affect how race is perceived in the future. I hope that our generation can be the ones to reduce this hate that is so easily spread, and in order to do this, we need to keep bringing attention to the issues at hand in our country today. I recommend looking at the article “What you can do to fight violence and racism against Asian Americans ( https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/what-you-can-do-to-fight-violence-and-racism-against-asian-americans) because I think it fits in very well with what you wrote about.

    • Dear Aaliyah,

      I totally agree with your post because of how the Asian community has been treated with brutality. The government indeed needs to do something about these hate crimes towards the Asian community, the Asian community is living in constant fear because of the hate crimes happening. It’s really sickening and tiring. This Asian community just wants all these crimes happening towards them to stop and to live in peace. Thanks for your writing about this because it’s something everyone should be aware of.

    • Dear Aaliyah, I fully agree with your post and the statements you mentioned. It is definitely wrong how much hate has been directed towards Asian-Americans. It isn’t right that as you said that we as a generation that is fully wanting to accept everyone are seeing hate crimes being committed against Asian-Americans. I am also astonished at how closed-minded some people are to bully others because of their race in this day and age, but it has been happening for years even before most of us were born. This post was very informational thank you for writing this.

    • Hey Aaliyah, Cyber Bullying is something the goes around very casually, Yes I indeed say casually but it’s how the world is nowadays. We need to stand up for change. Everything starts of with school don’t get me wrong. People making fun of people is a daily thing but to a certain extent. Once feelings are hurt that’s the ending line. Not many people know how to stop so its something I believe needs to be taught at home.

    • that the boys of noware getting more complicated the situasion because of passed from covid and they can no longer go to school so safatly

    • I am fascinated by your article “Students and the Pandemic” because I also agree that many teens have changed so much because of the pandemic since they were at home all the time. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was “The young teens and adults have had to deal with major changes within this pandemic that has affected them in a various number of ways.” I think this is important because many teens have changed and they don’t know how to deal with it. I also think that for some they found their true self which was a good thing for them. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to what you write next.

    • Hey, Aaliyah, I see that you’re talking about the life of children during the change of the pandemic. I believe they put themselves in that spot and they don’t accept change. So I feel they get this depression, anxiety because they cant continue with life knowing there’s a change. Change is scary but change is really really good. I believe people found themselves and who they truly are as a person. Thank you!, I hope to see some more of your writing soon!

      Your text caught my eye because of how five teenagers are wanting to make a difference in their communities. I like how rallies were formed to speak about racial justice. These teenagers were taking action to fight for racial justice and I believe they are doing the right thing. I do agree that Racism need to stop.

    • This article was extremely eye opening as it reveals all of the atrocities that immigrants have to endure in camps set up outside the boarder. The treatment of immigrants and refugees coming to the United States has always been a hot button topic in politics to this day. President Trump carries a strong immigration policy to the United States that has led to the deportation of thousands of illegal immigrants. This was a very interesting article and the points of summary that you made were great!

    • This article was incredibly enlightening as it uncovers the entirety of the monstrosities that foreigners need to suffer in camps set up outside the fringe. The treatment of outsiders and evacuees going to the United States has consistently been a hot catch point in legislative issues right up ’til the present time. President Trump conveys a solid migration strategy to the United States that has prompted the extradition of thousands of illicit migrants. This was an extremely fascinating article and the purposes of the outline that you made were extraordinary!

    • This article was really well done and I think that it was really enlightening on about how the government treats immigrants. It explained well about what they go through and it’s horrible conditions. Trump has had a strong hold of what has happened to immigrants and their families and it has lead to many people being deported. I think that overall this article helped me better understand what goes on and you made some good strong points.

    • Dear Aaliyah
      I am sad about your post Conditions Of Being an Immigrant because I don’t think kids should be separated from their families and I don’t think they deserve those horrible conditions in facilities they stay at. I agree that these families just want a better life for their families.
      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me ¨Family separation has been a significant topic as they’re only allowed to be separated for only 20 days, that statement, however, hasn’t been entirely true as children have been separated from their families for over a year.¨I think this is upsetting to know because these families that have children are probably sad and hopeless they arent with there families. However, I do hope this stops and the conditions get better because no one deserves this.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because these types of topics need to be known in our world.

    • Dear Aaliyah,
      I found your post “Conditions of Being an Immigrant” devastating. These immigrants go through horrible conditions in which not even an animal should be treated that way. It’s heartbreaking to imagine being separated from your family, I can’t imagine what these poor children go through.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, “Immigrants usually seek asylum in America for a better life and flee from horrible conditions in their own country,” It’s sad that they leave from the suffering to just end up suffering again in the detention centers. Something you didn’t write about which recently happened is how the women are treated in detention facilities. A nurse that was working in one of these ICE detention centers came out saying how doctors were removing many women’s uterus by performing a hysterectomy. And the most horrifying part is that many of these women didn’t even need the surgery, yet it was still performed on them.

      Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next on such topics like these that need to be made more aware of so something is done about them.

    • I think the protest people are trying to change history and how African-American people are getting treated now. I believe if people come together and keep using their voices then change could happen. In the picture, what caught my eye was the different races protesting. I think it’s even better because more people are helping out and showing that they care about multiple race/races.

    • I agree on how George Floyd death has had an impact in the world recently sparking protests from all around the world .This protest are a fight for the continuation of injustices against black people and police brutality which has been ongoing for years. I believe if people keep protesting , signing petitions , educating themselves and others on the topic and keep the resistance and keep doing research on these injustices against black people , and keep making our voices be heard against systematic racism . It’s a long fight but we are stronger together.

    • Dear: Aaliyah
      I am very interested about your post, “El Impacto de George Floyd,” because…It is something that moved millions of people because of racism and how they killed him was something cruel something that thanks to the racist police officer, George’s wife was left without a husband and her daughter without a father to see her grow up
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “George Floyd’s death sparks massive protests across the country” I think this is interesting because… It is something that moved and many people protested what they did to George, which was something that led them to teach that not only for being brown skin is criminal
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because…It is something that if I was moved by the racism that exists in many parts of the world

    • I agree that the circumstances in which they were killed is heartbreaking. I believe that these protests will be a step forward to gaining true equality. Everyone should have the same rights, under the law. I wish that happened in reality. These deaths have sparked a unity among people of different races, ages, etc. People around the world have been protesting together for equality. People can gain justice by sharing their opinions, protesting, signing petitions, and anything they can do to help. I just hope that true equality will be reached in the near future.

    • I really like this post about George Floyd. I think everyone should have the same rights s everybody else no matter their skin color. Next, when people protest I think that is helping our society out and will eventually help us gain the same equality for everyone. Next, these violent killings make people think more about how blacks are being treated in today’s society. Lastly, these killings and violent acts need to stop so we can make our world a better place for everyone.
