    • Ricardo,
      Are you saying that you think this would be a good thing to do? Or is it something that is happening somewhere? I don’t think a day without immigrants is a good direction to go in to show Trump the importance of all races in our nation. Also, President Trump does not hold things against people of all races, I believe he specifically targets people he presumes to be as terrorists. Even though the way he goes about deciding who the “terrorists” are is not correct whatsoever, he does not think all immigrants are terrible and not people that help our country. Your ideas are solid ideas, and I like your thoughts but I wanted to let you know my opinion and what I feel about the situation and see if you could see things through my POV.

    • This is a very interesting movement. Not only does it send of a great message, but it is a great eye opener. Obviously, immigrants have huge impact in the United States, but I don’t think people realize how big of an impact they make. This movement really shows the power of immigrants and how great they are for our country. Great article!

    • This is an interesting topic especially because I didn’t know before that there is a movement dedicated to staying home from work for immigrants. I think in theory this is a good idea, but I actually agree with Maddie that, while I don’t personally support trump’s policies, I don’t think he is taking aim at all immigrants. I don’t think he is trying to uproot all immigrants from the United States. I do agree with you though that this movement isn’t very effective because this won’t prove anything to Trump; Trump is in a very high up position and I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t notice any changes to the country if immigrants stopped working for one day. I thought this was a very interesting topic; good work!

    • Ricardo,
      BLM is simply a movement to remind the nation, and this nation’s law enforcement that black lives matter TOO (you know, as well, in addition to, in conjunction with) because it seems as though people have forgotten. Also it is not fair to say that BLM is violent or that they vandalize property because those people are not claimed by the movement.

      Please look at this website and educate yourself further.

    • MURDER is MURDER if you killed someone you are guilty. Though all of these police officers, WHITE men were not found guilty,… very ironic. Black lives is a movement for more than the recent mass killings of young black men, it is for unfair everyday treatment and justice served to ALL Black LIves, as would of another race. I believe that you should do a little more research and be a little more careful choosing your words. Especially since you have no physical prove in which you can determine the men being guilty for their own deaths. If you have no personal interest, then you shouldn’t have an opinion at all. Furthermore, your “opinions” is “Idiotic”, “disgraceful” and very ignorant to post in the first place. Rather than trying to evoke emotions to go against something you do not understand, try to find the deeper meaning behind it to understand who you are as a person. Purpose over opinions. #BLACKLIVESMATTER

    • Imagine being a police officer in America today. You are one the most hated people in America and yet you are still responsible for protecting all of its citizens. It blows my mind that people have lost sight of the purpose of police. Sure they screw up sometimes and they pay the consequences for that, but for people to test police as bad as they do today, I am surprised that it does not occur more often. Being a cop is one of the most stressful jobs in America and you never know if you are going to return home that night. If citizens and police could respect each other more, that would be best for all of America.

    • I agree that the BLM movement is not perfect. But it’s a very important movement. It has help spread awareness that in this time and age racism still exist.I agree that maybe some actions haven’t been the best but we can base all a whole movement on the actions of a couple people. The BLM movement is more than just protesting it’s about empowering black people and it has a lot of positive actions they be doing as well. I like your example on how in that case their action wasn’t the best but research both sides of the movement even the lowkey helping out community people because you will see a different light on the movement.

  • Dear Hector,
    I agree that using illicit drugs such as cocaine, ecstasy, and marijuana recreationally is really bad and can have permanent issues given to the user you don’t really seem to talk about the benefits of some of these drugs. For example, medical marijuana is used by people with AIDS to reduce their nausea and neuropathy. Medical m…Read More

    Has America forgotten about the things they've done to African-Americans?

    • Dear Ricardo,
      I am inspiered by your story about America not remembering about slavery and we should remember all the tragics that have happened back then into today so all Americans should remember about this and how it affected all African Americans and the struggles they had to face in slavery slavery was important thing that happened in history and I strongly agree with you.

    • After reading your article, there are a number of things I would like to voice my opinion over, and I sincerely hope that you hesitate on reacting with aggressive words and accusations.

      For one thing, slavery is anything but forgotten about and swept under the rug in this country. Schools teach about these horrible acts committed by American colonials within the earliest chapters of any history book, American or World. It is as integral a part of the nation’s history as any other, especially in regards to the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln, and modern day discrimination. People are not ignorant to how and when this existed, and next to none would ever argue that the acts committed were anything less than brutal and savage. Do not assume that this is an issue people have forgotten about or do not know of, because America is not THAT inconsiderate.

  • Dear Seth,

    I agree that DNA modification can be used to do much good like for example biologists have been able to take away HIV cells away from rats. they have also been able to take out Hemophilia B in early testing like you said. But DNA modification can also permanently and severely damage things such as embryos or eggs. Damaged embryos can…Read More
