  • I was definitely drawn to your essay because of the cover image, but talking about how the transportation in atlanta was actually a trap to keep them in the city was very interesting

  • Hearing about this new demographic was interesting, and I never knew atlanta was called the black mecca

    Shameful traffic, Atlanta's Roads

    The state of traffic in Atlanta has been driven by decades of racism and attempts at segregation from the white population. While this may seem like some kind of over exaggeration, can assure you that this statement is anything...

    • The paragraph effectively links historical racism to Atlanta’s traffic issues, showcasing systemic biases in urban planning. It effectively uses examples like redlining and highway construction to illustrate ongoing discrimination. Overall, I think it skillfully combines historical analysis with contemporary urban challenges, enhancing understanding of Atlanta’s traffic problems. And I think you did a good job explaining the issues and providing examples to back it up.

    • The writing is very engaging and powerful, effectively arguing that decades of racism and segregation have played a significant role in shaping the state of traffic in Atlanta. The use of specific examples such as Jim Crow laws and redlining strengthens the argument and provides a clear picture of the situation. However, the writing could benefit from a more balanced tone, as the current tone is quite critical and might not appeal to all readers. Additionally, further evidence and research could be added to support the argument and make it even more persuasive.

    • What first drew me to this post was its colorful picture as it reminded me of a political comic strip. I’m confused about what you meant by the “white minority” because aren’t they the majority population? However I liked how you emphasized that there was intentionally bad urban design that marginalized communities.

    • The tone in this passage is very powerful. I like how you kept connecting back to one main idea. I think the photo does a really good job to capture the emotion of the passage.

  • I Chose My profile picture and cover because I really enjoy fantasy and I thought the two compliment each other pretty well
