    • After reading your post, I was intrigued by the way you started to persuade the reader to want to read more. I agree with essentially everything that you spoke about. I like the way that you connect small everyday issues with root isses.

    • The opening paragraph tied together the main points and was straightforward. I like the way that you set up your examination and put different subtitles for each one. You connected the different things from back then to now, which some people may not do when writing and it’s good to see how well you have done it.

    • This comment is for Lily.

      You have provided a really insightful analysis of the historical foundations of contemporary difficulties. In particular, your examination of the relationship between institutional racism and urban planning shows how current issues are connected to historical injustices. Your insightful explanation of how seemingly little events, like traffic jams, can be linked to more significant historical settings is thought-provoking. It is clear that you have a thorough understanding of these intricate issues, and your call to action for a future that is more just and equal is quite moving. Go on doing a fantastic job at bringing these important topics to light.

      Question: How do you believe acknowledging the historical roots of modern issues, such as systemic racism in urban planning, can inform efforts to create more equitable and just societies moving forward?

    • You did an amazing job at explaining what you think this whole Traffic Jam is as a person looking on the outside. How you broke up these paragraphs give a good explanation on how this issue needs to be talked about and how it needs to be addressed.

    • Lily, I’m happy you brought up slavery, that wasn’t that long ago, still affects the world today. So many people tell communities that went through traumatic things and people just tell them to get over it. We would love to but those tragedies still affect us. What do you think atlanta, or philly, should do so everyone can have the same opportunities?
