    • I completely agree, you have a very good valid point that all people should be treated equal not matter their race, religon, ethnicity, or even physical shape. It is inhumane.

    • I agree with your points about equal opportunity and i really liked when you talked about your mother influencing you. I especially liked this quote “My mother made me realize that not everyone on earth had the opportunity to an education like mine” I liked this quote because you called attention to ignorance and how to avoid it.Your post reminds me of i book i read called “children of the river” in the terms of opportunities being given to certain people but not others.I enjoyed this post and i would enjoy reading more about your opinion on equal opportunities.

    • This is a very well written and meaningful peace of work. My parents also tell me to be thankful for what I have, as they grew up with very little, and they understand there are people who had even less than they did. The idea of equity in opportunity is an important idea as well, and the examples you used highlighted that. The autobiography “I am Malala” is a similar, first-hand look at this inequality in certain places in the world. I look forward to reading what you write next.

    • This is a lovely piece. You did a wonderful job at diving into a heavy topic and making it personal at the same time. I liked the moments of reflection on your own life, and how you discussed your mother’s influence on you. The points made on equal opportunity were presented very well, and your use of examples perfectly accompanied them. I liked how you said “morals are the only thing that matter as do their actions.” This idea is overlooked by a lot of people, creating a foundation for inequality in the world. This piece reminded me of “Animal Farm” by George Orwell, which illustrates a world of obvious inequality. I truly enjoyed this piece and am excited to see what you write next.

    • I agree whole heartedly with your statements above. I really appreciate how you made a personal connection to the topic, it makes your argument more personal and easier to connect to. This statement, “As religious affiliation, ethnicity and gender shouldn’t play a part in how people are to be treated at all”, is something I believe most people around our country are forgetting at this time in our history. The only question that I have for you is how do you think we can get people to be more open minded and change this society that we live in?

  • Hi Aleashiaray, I’ve been wanting to bring up this topic in my writing, as I also feel strongly about how there are homeless people everywhere around the United States. Like you said ” People walk past them like they’re not even people”. I agree with you because a little empathy needs to be shown to these people, even if you aren’t in their…Read More

    Adam, I liked your post a lot, one thing that I thought was interesting was when you stated how numerous amounts of government agencies go against our amendments and our rights a United State citizens. Although I think that people shouldn’t be allowed to own automatic weapons you are right that, that is a restriction to our second amendment. Also…Read More

    • Bryant,
      I really like your post. It brings up very good and interesting points. There are many things that make America its own individual country but some of these ideals aren’t lived up too. What do you think that some of these ideals are? Do you personally believe that everyone should have equal opportunity to succeed or do you think that there are some cases where people don’t? I agree with your point about the color of our skin and how that effects our ability to be treated equally. I also agree with your last statement on how you don’t think you can define American Culture because of its “melting pot” characteristics. I found this article on America’s ‘melting pot’. I think reading this could help define America in a broad way. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/436347/america-melting-pot-immigrant-culture-made-country-great This post was very good. I hope to see more.

    • Bryant,
      I enjoyed the points that you made on culture and opportunity in America. I agree that American culture is difficult to succinctly define. Historically, America is a “melting pot” of multiple different cultures from across the globe. This makes “American culture” itself a whole other entity. Whereas a cultures such as French or Chinese bring up specific images in your mind instantaneously, America does not. Currently, America is also largely divided on our beliefs. For example, the country has never seen a greater divide between the beliefs of conservatives and liberals, which in turn causes certain social structures to occur in different areas of the country. This leaves people more divided amongst all aspects, rather than feeling united in their common American culture. In your opinion, do you think that America is currently more divided than we have been in the past? Opportunity in America also largely varies. Where one city, such as Seattle, may have a high upward mobility rate, other areas, such as Atlanta, have very low upward mobility rates. For this reason, the family that you are born into and where you grow up play large roles in determining how likely you are to succeed. I researched an article detailing the myth of equal opportunity in our nation, and I think that you would enjoy it. https://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/02/16/equal-opportunity-our-national-myth/
      Good job on the post!
