• Can people change from violence? Can violence change anything? “Changes” by Tupac Shakur provokes these questions.  On the surface, “Changes” is a poem about the violence and racism in America. The police a

    • Ivan your writing was good. I liked how you explained this poem and how laid everything out. If there was one thing you can say more of is how we the people can make a change in everything thats going on. Thank you for your writing. I hope to read more of your work

    • Dear Ivan:
      I am surprised by how you written your post, “can people change from violence? Can violence change anything?,” because it is so well written and i don’t think i could “press” you
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next

  • 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…[Read more]

    • Ivan, my mouth is watering for fried chicken after I read that. Even if you don’t have any significant turning points, maybe you could talk a little bit about the workers at the shop you go to and how their kindness and generosity affects you.

    • Honestly, i found your bio pretty cool. It wasn’t like the others, i enjoyed the simplicity it was refreshing to read. Also nice bird picture ( i love a good bird picture.) How is living in N.Y.C? I’ve always have wondered what that would be like. I just live in Texas its probably a big culture difference.
