    I was brought to my feet by your post, ¨ should school be allowed to control students’ media posts¨ cause like in my school I have not yet seen students or teachers say that schools should be getting into the student’s personal life but that they have heard other schools go through similar thing like that so I would say it not a good…Read More

    Minimum wage

    In the article, “Raising the Minimum” (McGraw Hill) I learned that the federal minimum wage is 7.25 an hour.   This horrible situation has been difficult to survive on that amount of money, even for the full-time workers.  It...

    • Hello Hanady,
      It is definitely a difficult question as to rather or not they should raise the minimum wage. The way the US handles waiters’ tips is certainly not the best way to fix the situation, but it relieves some of the stress on small businesses and waiters still make money. As I said it’s not perfect but it kind of helps balance things out.

  • Dear Arual,
    I am interested with your post “To protect Black women and save America from itself, elect Black women” because it inspires me to see that black women are taking a stand. Its inspiring to see that they are chasing after their dreams to accomplish them. Women have been through so much and its good to see that more black women are hol…Read More

    Bathroom rights

    In the article, “transgender bathroom rights rollback” I learned that president Trump rolled back protections for transgender students that allowed them to use whichever bathroom corresponds to their gender identity, rather than to their biological sex.   Trump said the protections,...

    • Dear Hanady, 

      I am intrigued by your post, “Bathroom rights” because I think that it’s fascinating that they expanding bathroom right for the LQBTQ+ community. I also find it kind of weird because I would’ve never thought that the former president would’ve been a part of this. 

      One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is, “ He also wrote instead that it should be up to each individual state and school district to decide its own bathroom policy.” I think this shouldn’t be a thing because it should be established for every state or school to allow individuals to use the bathroom on what they may identify themselves with. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to what you write next because I really liked how you well- explained this. I am also interested in other LGBTQ+ rights that are or will be expanded soon.

    • Dear, Hanady,

      I am surprised by your post about, “Bathroom rights” because Trump actually
      did something good, and it was for the LGBTQ+ community and made changes for them as I assumed trump didn’t seem to like them.

      One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was ” every state or school to allow individuals to use the bathroom on what they may identify themselves with. ” I think it’s good for the LGBTQ+ people to use restrooms that are their genders, but in my opinion, I think places shouldn’t pick the rules for the LGBTQ community as some may feel uncomfortable when going to stores.

      Thank you for writing this post about the “Bathroom right” because you really explained what the LGBTQ+ community is going through right now.

  • Dear Karen,

    Your post, “Discrimination In LGBTQ+,” was a eye opening to me, and informed me that just because people express themselves they get treated very unfairly and can even be led to either verbal or physical abuse. It’s a very horrible situation.

    One sentence you wrote that stood out for me was: “people who come out tend to get harasse…Read More
