This might not be entirely due to race and may have more to do with culture differing among the socio-economic levels. Also, legalizing marijuana would be bad for the people in low income neighborhoods who grow and sell it, since big companies could invest into the growing of it, therefore driving small illegal businesses into the ground due to…[Read more]
Also from all logical standpoints we are better than them, reason being is we’re the highest on the food chain, they are subservient to us and at our disposal. Mind blown right? The shark is greater and stronger than the seal.
Wait… Wait just one second… We raise animals specifically for lab testing, not effecting their wild population whatsoever, and most animals we test on are completely domesticated and wouldn’t be able to survive in the wild due to a lack of human interventionism. The loss of wild animal life is largely due, not to over hunting or “cruel” human…[Read more]
I’ve told my girlfriend multiple times that I don’t care if she wears a bra or not, and she still does, primarily because if she doesn’t it would be painful to walk or run anywhere. Most women wear bras, not because it’s taboo not to, but because it helps many women.
The whole pot industry’s success is because of the substance’s exclusivity due to being illegal. This will hurt low income neighborhoods greatly by making a drug that only the poorest of individuals could produce without consequence, into a drug that big corporations can produce, providing little in the way for the poor.

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
