• Josie,
    I think this is an interesting article. I agree that we not forget our past but I do not think the statues should be left standing. They glorify individuals who had strong racist views and in the present day racism should not be encouraged.

  • Xavier,
    First off I like how you used the quote from The Boondocks. I agree with your point that rather than rebuild the buildings we should just rename them. There needs to be a change and this could be a good way to do it.

  • McCamey,
    I remember talking about this issue in my history class. I think that these statues glorify individuals who had racist values and this is something that shouldn’t be glorified. I read in some of the comments that they should just be moved. What is your opinion on that?

  • Shantanu,
    Great post! I think this is a very interesting topic. I have not considered what effect Trumps actions will have after he leaves the white house. Do you think that this will affect politics in the future?

  • Tanner,
    This is an interesting post. I found the statistic about the 27 soccer fields a minute very surprising that is a lot of land being ruined very quickly. I think this is a very important issue that the whole world should address before it becomes too late to do anything about climate change and it’s effects.

  • Koji,
    This is a really interesting post. I have obviously heard about the debate over legalization but I never thought of the connection to the opiate problem. That is a very interesting idea and I personally think that if it would relieve the pain of people in need of opiates then it would be a very sensible idea to use medical marijuana. Do you…[Read more]

  • Johan,
    This is a very interesting post. It is somewhat frightening to think that big corporations would be targeting a younger demographic in the sale of potentially harmful e-cigarettes. Do you know if this is factual? I wonder if the multitude of flavors is just another way that these e-cigarette companies help smokers quit by offering a better…[Read more]

  • Some issues between skiers and snowboarders are brought up in this article.

    AT THE SNOWBIRD SKI RESORT IN UTAH last month, a knot of skiers had had just about enough of Snowboarders. They’re rude and reckless,

    • Hey Max! I never really though much of the whole conflict between skiers and snowboarders, although now that I think about it, even I’m guilty of swearing out fourteen year olds on boards who come two inches from taking me out. Snowboarding is definitely a culture thing more than just a sport. When I was a freshman I even tried it one season because it had the same vibes as skating and I was about it… until I actually went down a slope. Turns out, they’re not actually that similar. Who woulda thought? Anyways, I think this is a really interesting topic, in part because it’s not one you would think of to write about typically. So yeah, looking forward to seeing your other work!

  • Billy,
    I find this topic very interesting. I have seen scientists and meteorologists in shows who discuss this topic and they mention a “cap” to human existence meaning that eventually the human race will get to a point where we can no longer survive on this earth.
