    • Seth, I think this is such a great thing to be researching. I love how you discuss the political affiliations of hip hop music, as well as the role played by the corporate world in music. I think it would be very interesting to see how this applies to modern hip hop music and what artists are especially known for using the platform to express their opinions. Really great job!

    • Seth,
      It is very interesting how you discovered the different outsourcing regarding hip hop music, and thee contrast between the old and new genres of hip hop. I look forward to your further research.

      I am inspired by your picture because it shows how things looked back then. It showed me how music covers looked like. And you taught me that back then people like to listen to jazz. I thought that they just heard hip hop. thank you for your post I look forward to seeing what you make next.

    • 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 cause defects and possibly even death. The bad thing is that this DNA modification process is irreparable. This process might be the way of the future by being able to edit embryos can have a variety of good and bad outcomes.

    • I agree completely with what you are saying here Seth. I too wonder what the world would be like with genetic modification as a possibility. The fact that there might be an actual backing for racism based on DNA differences instead of just pigment differences. People will always have traits that they do not want but to me these deformities afe what make us humans, no one is perfect and everyone is special in their own way because of slight differences in genetics, but if genetic modification is a possibility, it causes that slight genetic difference to become so large that it actually makes a difference between people, causing prejudice and racism to become a viable argument that cannot be refuted because genetics have caused people to be better than other people.

    Perhaps something just as concerning as the killing of unarmed black males is the corrupt criminal justice system that desperately needs reform. Black men often are disproprtionately imprisoned for non-violent

    • dear seth,
      i am interested on your post, what stands out to me is ” the most obvious cause of prejudice is that it creates advantages and material benefits for those who are prejudice. Prejudice can provide an excuse or realization for economic exploitation or political domination” its interesting because everyone is different and also i didn’t know there were different types of racism.
