  • I think the image came out pretty well when describing the text. About the Article, I feel like the introduction from the first paragraph would’ve been better if you also claimed something about the traffic jam instead of just explaining what it is. I think he ended the text in a good way without missing anything.

    • this really shows off how much slavery changed up the society of today.

    • I love how you start the post with a connection to slavery, Today we constantly overlook how things today were kinda similar within times of slavery. I only wished the picture was more on topic of the conversation.

    • What first drew me to this post was the picture because it stood out, although it isn’t on topic. I liked how you analyzed the traffic jam as a metaphor for slavery.

    • What first made me in your post is your profile picture, it caught my eye because it’s so colorful. Once I read your post, I asked myself the question in your introduction. I agree that there is an unequal distribution of resources. Your conclusion ends your post with intent.

    • I was drawn to this post because of the unique image of the bird and I wondered how that connected to Atlanta traffic and slavery. Overall I think this was well written and made sense. I agree with the connection made between the traffic in atlanta and slavery, and with the societal impacts they both have/leave on us. I am interested and really like the idea of a metaphor to connect the two things and how these past issues result in a metaphorically traffic jam.

    • The way that you can draw in the traffic Jam to intertwine with slavery really stands out and can show the big picture on why this issues has to be talked about and why it was hidden away from all these years.

    • I was intrigued by the colorful bird In the picture of your essay and was interested in the way it might have a connection with the overall passage. Though I do want to ask what else could be added within your essay to further explain the overall situation happening in Atlanta and how it could possibly affect other cities too. The way you make a connection about the traffic jam and slavery is also great to note.

    • I think your picture is really interesting, It was the image that drew me to your reading and I wondered how they connected to each other, as I continued reading I became more interested. I think you did a good job I agree with the overall connection you made with slavery and the traffic in Atlanta and I think this was written very well.

    • I like you take on this article because initially none of us thought of how this could possibly be related to segregation but it makes you think of how must you pay attention to your past. It also lets it be known that The unequal distribution of resources mirrors systemic disparities, bringing back the enduring effects of past inequalities.Your perspective touches on the need to address these issues and strive for a more just and equitable society. I was drawn to this because I’ve never heard Richard speak on a topic like this.

    • Your analysis, in my opinion, demonstrates a thoughtful exploration of the potential metaphorical meanings behind the traffic jam. I appreciate your focus on uplifting peers and encouraging deep reflection on the topic. I was very drawn to your cover, it’s very pretty and can relate to your opinion piece. Your questions about the metaphorical representation of slavery and the unequal distribution of resources add depth to the discussion and encourage further critical thinking. One question I have is: How can we actively work towards addressing the systemic issues highlighted by the metaphor of the traffic jam in our communities?

    • The colour of the bird is really interesting. The background of the picture being black presents the bird as hope in the dark. I also like your take on this article because I had a similar interpretation of it possibly being related to segregation.

    • In your thoughtful analysis, you delve into the layers underlying the traffic jam, prompting deeper reflection on systemic inequities. Your approach uplifts nuanced perspectives and encourages readers to critically examine the metaphor’s implications. The visually striking cover art initially drew me in, aligning well with the piece’s evocative exploration of underlying societal issues.

    • This presents a fascinating perspective on the traffic jam in Atlanta, sparking introspection on how it metaphorically represents the lingering effects of slavery. I appreciate how it encourages us to delve deeper into societal gridlock and consider the unresolved issues from the past hindering progress today. By drawing parallels between the unequal distribution of resources and the traffic jam, it highlights the enduring impact of historical injustices, prompting us to reflect on the interconnectedness of past and present experiences.

    • I love how you start the post with a connection to slavery. Today, we constantly overlook how things today were kind of similar within times of slavery. I only wish the picture was more on topic for the conversation. Drawing those parallels is important for understanding the present context. Your opening effectively sets the stage for an insightful discussion on this weighty subject.

    • This insightful writing connects Atlanta’s traffic jam to the lasting effects of slavery and historical injustices. It highlights how the traffic jam represents societal challenges, unequal resource distribution, and the impact of the past on the present. I notice it´s the thought-provoking perspective that encourages reflection on the intersection of history, symbolism, and our lives today. What have you learned from the essay you wrote plus the traffic jam essay you read annotated on?

    • I like the design of the post picture, and your insight on the topic like how, I had a similar interpretation of it possibly being related to segregation. I would like to know however why you chose that photo and why you decided a colorful photo for a semi dark tone as this topic.

    • Richard, I completely agree that the “The traffic jam might symbolize the interconnectedness of past and present, suggesting that the consequences of slavery continue to shape the experiences of individuals and communities today.” My mother always says ” the ones who don’t know the past are doomed to repeat it. What made you want to connect the past with the future?

    • I think your picture is really interesting, It was the image that drew me to your reading and I wondered how they connected to each other, as I continued reading I became more interested. I think you did a good job I agree with the overall connection you made with slavery and the traffic in Atlanta and I think this was written very well.

    • richard I like that you bring up new questions and connections using metaphors its different using symbolism to further explain and understand a topic.

    • Your voice truly shines in this piece. You connected to the text while bringing forth your interpretation of this issue. Your cover photo is very different from the other posts which influenced me to click on your article.
