  • Dear Leticia,

  • It occurred to me that these three have one strong connection in between and that is how the social class is

    • Dear Issaka,
      I am Choose an adjective grateful to show you my emotion that I feel when I read your story, “America Inequality in Different Ways,”. Your story was too emotional for me because it was much realist and had a great thought about the three stories the way that all authors describe women blue with respect. And how society should treat them.
      One line that stands out for me is, “A local girl will have hips and a nice ass but won’t be quick about letting you touch her ” I think this evidence is interesting because it shows how much women are their own value no matter the status. since a respectful woman will never let you touch her.
      Another sentence that stands out for me and it is fascinating is, “Her feet were always neat-looking as if God himself had shaped them with a certain style…Hair is all over his head a foot long and hanging from his chin like a kinky mule tail.” This stood out for me because The whole story is about how you like the narrator is advising the boy on how to treat a woman based on their race. And this has a great connection with the whole world of today specifically west Africa because women can’t have voice when man is not there. Since they are not considered women like something precious that we must value.
      Your story helps me to understand story that I once read in Africa call “Feminist from women are illegal in Africa” that also talk about the abuse of men on women despite all humans are equal boys don’t want to hear that. Since they are thinking without them women can not survive or arrive so some people don’t care about women’s precious value that they have. I still think why this is a big deal in our society but never have the answer like today after finishing reading your three stories rewritten I realize the big impact from boys to girls .
      Thanks for your summary of three stories. I look forward to seeing what you make next. Since I really enjoy it and it helps me to open my mind about our society even though sometimes it is really hard for us like women we can change it . Trying to change their mind is a good solution because we have a right that boys should respect us no matter what will happen.

    • Dear Issaka
      I am impressed by your analysis “,America Inequality in Different Ways” because you used all the three stories to show how they struggles of being poor. And how you show wealth unequally distributed in the U.S. One paragraph that stands out for me is,” In the three stories the authors talked about African american female appearance and the way they give moral advice ” I think this really show the imagery in the story to show how black women look or should look. Another paragraph that stands out for me is, your introduction I think this section really can help the reader to understand more about the three and make clear. Thanks for your story. I look forward to seeing what you make next.

    • Dear Issaka,

      I am fascinated by the way you compared and contrasted the three short stories. You took a specific details from each story and you elaborated on how they all convey the issue about race and wealth in the American community.
      One thing that stands out for me was your word choices and descriptive writing to show the wealth inequality. The word “Bottom Dwellers ” shows that poor people are being perceived as less that others even though they didn’t make themselves poor.
      Another thing that stands out for me your eloquence . You are able to expires your ideas and convey a feeling throughout the entire essay.
      Have you ever heard of Taha Hussein ? I think you will be interested in that because he share with you the same writing style.
      Thank you for your detailed analysis . I look forward to see more work from you.

    • Dear Issaka,
      I am impressed by your essay “,America Inequality in Different Ways” and the way you compared and contrasted the three short stories. The detail you used and the way your go back and forth in your is very nice
      One thing that stands out for me was how you choose your words and connect it directly to your literary element. The word “Ironically”shows how funny lifes can differ from one another.
      Another thing that stands out for me is the last paragraph . I would like you to talk about black female body. I am interested in your writing style.
      Thank you for your analysis. I look forward to seeing more work from you.

  • I waited for her to finish using the restroom because even though she has been physically hurt she is still have this unbelievable habit of getting up early right before mom and I. I came from a poor family

    • Dear Issaka
      I am enthusiastic about your short story, “Dee’s plan to become a rich,” because the way you depict Dee’s motives which really emphasized she knows how to play around people by only caring about her desires and gain what she craves for. She did not feel melancholy, even for a little bit when the old house god burned in the flames and her strong mom was breaking her back to manage household.
      One line that stands out for me is, “ we shouldn’t take advantage of people for their wealth, ” I think this line is intriguing because this is authentic which makes your story excellent and teach a great lesson
      Your story helps me to understand Everyday use that I once read, we should be satisfied with what we have by giving important heritage and tradition.
      Thanks for your Story. I look forward to seeing what you make next.

    • Dear Issaka.
      I am choosing an adjective showing emotion of enriched about your story. your story, “Dee’s plan to become rich” because you is teach us how women can be determined at the same ambitieuse. In an interest to succeed her life and for her family.
      One line that stands out for me is,“This was the ideal family I wished to came from or to be part of” I think this line is thought-provoking because it caught my attention to know more about the story. Since I was asking myself many questions about her that was where is love because she just think about her profit when the man will be married her.
      Another line that stands out for me is, “ I have always been a great looking girl and so making myself noticed by him would be the easier part of the plan.” I think this line is interesting because it makes me think how became a rich girl was her dream. Does why she just feel happy inside of her because she is thinking the situation will be easy for her since she has all the tools man need to see from women.
      Your Story helps me to understand a story that I once read on everyday use because in this story it was a problem of a families that one sister was burned and others one no . Then sister who doesn’t burn she just acts differently because she think the family is not deserve here. Does why all things she doing is like rich daughter. Therefore your history just open eyes for me to understand more clearly.
      Thanks for your Story I look forward to seeing what you make next time . Since I would like to see different type of story in others situation like that . Then using some of strategies elements that we can feel it more. And those can of thing will bring me back to see others creations you made.

    • Dear Issaka
      I am interested with your short story, “Dee’s plan to become rich,” because related the ambitious that one girl wants to change her status of life doesn’t matter the obstacles or sacrifices.
      One of the lines that stands out for me was, “This was the ideal family I wished to came from or to be part of. He was a bit older than I was but I didn’t mind. I thought to myself that if I could be a part of this family, it could bring an end to my miserable life. ” These lines represent that she is an ambitious person because she wants to have a better life that she has.
      Your short story “Dee’s plan to become rich,” helps me understand that some people are ambitious and choose the easy way to change their life without thinking .
      Thanks for your short story. I look forward to seeing what you make next. I hope you post interesting texts like this one.

    • Dear Issaka,
      I am amazed by your story “Dee story to become” the way you characterized Dee shows that she will do anything to get what she wants even if it meant taking advantage of other people wealth. You mentioned something really powerful in your story that it touched me and I think It something that need to be taking in consideration as a life lesson.

      The line is “we shouldn’t take advantage of people for their wealth”. This is the section that I think it now day girls some take really seriously that they will have a bright future.

      Thanks for your Story. I look forward to seeing what’s coming up next.

    • Dear Issaka,

      I am impressed by how you shorten the story of “Everyday Use” by Alice Walker in a very compelling way. It really shows how Dee sees the family in someway and I like how you emphasize how poverty is the main problem of the family division, especially in the case of Dee. It is also impressive how you talk about the efforts that the Mother has done for her, which most of the people do not see from the side you saw it.

      One of the lines that stand out for me were ” My dream became so true when I met him”, this explains how Dee did not want to continue living the type of life that she was going trough. This actually tells how she was not content how she lived with the mother and her sister and wanted to live another type of life outside of her box.
      It actually connects to my life because most of the people want to get rid off poverty since they seem that this is one of the ways in which they want to get rid of poverty . this actually reminds me of why many people regardless of the stability of the family in which they live, they still want to break down relationships that even if they do no`t have the most money, they still leave happy. On top of that some people because of their lack of understanding and ambitions that reach more that what they actually can.

      Thanks for allowing me to read your poem. I really like your point of view you left explain so much further than what we read so far in the story of “Everyday Use” by Alice Walker
