The Sarah Barman video today had some very shocking mistreatment of African Americans. I don’t understand how Europeans could justify their actions of treating another human being like that. Also to know that people still went to see her pickled remains for almost a century after her death showed that it was more than one person that contributed to this. People thought that African Americans were a different species and weren’t even human. We can also see this in our society today.I grew up outside the Bronx, and my school was mainly comprised of African American and Hispanic people.
My cousins that lived just outside the city in the suburbs, went schools were the population was 90% white. It is almost like our races still keep us separate even though our society proclaims that were all equal now. The large disparity in the number of other ethnicities located in these areas cannot just be coincidence. It opened my eyes to see that this stuff still goes n today when I was under the impression that our society was much better than before.The poem “Ghetto Booty” also brought up some issues today. Many songs, which I do listen too, objectify a women’s body and even degrade the African American community. When I listen to hip hop music, I don’t take the lyrics they say literally.
We realize that these people just want to sell their music and you can’t do that by rapping about Jesus or something else. Other people are quick to judge our music and take everything literally.
Who is Greta Thunberg?
When you watched the video on Wednesday, you may have thought that global warming is too big for one person to solve. If you stop eating meat, there are lots of other people who are still eating meat, so why change your habits? Greta Thunberg does not believe this. She is of the opinion that, if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. 1. Write one paragraph about Greta Thunberg. Who is she, where is she from, and what is she trying to do (in other words, why is she famous)? When you research her, you will find that she is also being mocked (made fun of) by many people, including government leaders. 2. Write one paragraph about why people are making fun of her or accusing her of not telling the truth. 3. Write down ten easy actions you could do right now to reduce your impact on global warming. 4. If working to reduce global warming is so easy, why do you think we (people, governments, you) are not doing it? Extension: Research one city which is trying to make a difference by reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. What is the city doing?
