    • You are right about this because police don’t give people a chance to do what they ask. They are so quick to shoot and kill somebody or take them straight to jail.

    • Jordan, I definitely agree on this statement that Mark Twain was not racist. All the points you have addressed I think are true and I have the same thinking behind it all. Mark Twain was not a fan of slavery so that further proves your point that he isn’t racist. 🙂

    • Hi Jordan, I agree that Mark Twain was not racist he was just trying to give context to the time and how african americans were addressed. Twain allowed his readers be exposed to the real reality of how African Americans were treated. I think that it is better to show the audience the truth instead of just hiding the real facts. Do you think it was important for Twain to include the word in order for the audience to get the true experience for what was occurring during this time.?

    • Dear Jordan,
      While I see where you’re coming from, and yes, stereotypes can come off as offensive, I see your argument as quite underwhelming. Personally, I don’t think stereotypes should be taken to heart, I honestly think they’re hilarious. However, a lot of much more serious cases of racism actually occur in our country, such as mass murders over the simple fact that they don’t a specific race. So, you, and others should not feel objectified over simple words, because at the end of the day, they’re just words, and it’s up to you to decide if the words should affect you.

    • Jordan, thank you for sharing this piece. I really like the simplicity of this and how you introduce the very beginning of the novel. Keep up the good work!

    Dear Mr./Mrs. President:

    I think the most important issue we need to address for the new president is police brutality because it’s happening more and more often. But the government hasn’t done anything about it.
