    • I like the reason you chose this poem, because you are discussing about the racism and bad threatening black people. I’ve read your poem and you pointed out everything important. One of your quotes that stands out for me is “…The poem springs from a particular historical moment/culture specifically, the LA riots in the 1990s. The poem revolves around several themes, including resistance and hate. If this poem were a question, the answer would be “police brutality is unfair.”

    • Dear Erald ,
      I liked how you explained about the oppression of black people and police brutality.
      One sentence that suprsed me was “The big question is why is there police brutality? The poem answers this question with the line “pull a trigger kill a nigga he’s a hero.” The hero in that stanza means the police”
      I liked how you explained the police brutality and your interpretation about the Tupac’s theory.

      Thank you for writing!!

  • do you think its more than just racism?

  • i agree with everything that u wrote i had the same poem and wrote about the same thing i also saw another changes analysis by tyler and he thinks its about poverty and racism i agree but i think its way more than just that as we both wrote on our analysis

    • Dear Erald,
      I am intrigued by your post because I have done the same analysis on “Changes”. I want to see what you think about the poem/song.
      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “The Black Panthers believed that black people should arm themselves…” I think this is interesting because Tupac mentions Huey’s death when he tried to use violence to gain equal rights.
      Your post reminds me of the violence and racism today. It seems that police brutality is dying down, but it is still going on. Black people still haven’t had their rights equal to white people.
      Thanks for your post. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your ideas are interesting.
