How can we have and elect such a president who is always saying whatever he feels like on Twitter, who is always spreads hateful comments on people, groups, and organizations, there has been over 700 hate crimes already within the first two weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency. Society and media really needs to change its perspective by having more of an open mind and embracing differences between one person to another, in many Muslim communities like those seven countries also recall campaign promises that they wouldnt be welcome when Donald Trump gets elected as president, so to elabarate more further in this travel ban, where they pushed through a ban before to deny visitors with passports and visa entry into the United States on basis of their home country.
My use of social media is not Presidential – it’s MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. Make America Great Again!
Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses. Too bad!
I am extremely pleased to see that has finally been exposed as and garbage journalism. It’s about time!
Watched low rated for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show
I heard poorly rated speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came.
I am thinking about changing the name CNN to !
The FAKE & FRAUDULENT NEWS MEDIA is working hard to convince Republicans and others I should not use social media – but remember, I won..

Police work is very dangerous and sometimes they are put into situations where excessive force is needed. But it often goes to a level where there is too much force used and it seems to often target African Americans in particular. This topic should really be looked upon by police commissioners and also should be addressed to the community of New York. The job of the police should be to protect and serve the citizens of New York City and make sure the law gets put into place. The black community experiences racial profiling through excessive force from the police.
African Americans experience more arrests than whites. 79% of people who have been surveyed are not satisfied with the way the justice system deals with individuals. Studies have shown that police are more likely to target black males in cities with violent crime. Race and color can be one of the factors that they specifically target. Blacks are more likely to get pulled over and be killed instead of whites. As of 2010, blacks were the most likely racial group to be arrested by marijuana possession in United States. In 2013, statistics of New Yorkers being stopped by police showed that 56 percent of those stopped and frisked were black males. In comparison, only 11 percent were white males.
The police use excessive power when dealing with minorities. 84% of people who have been surveyed say that they have witnessed other police officers using more force than needed to make an arrest. Blacks are more likely to be stopped 80 percent of the time and arrested 69 percent of the time. According to 2012, the stats show that 87% people who are shot by police are black, while Latino make up 9%. These statistics are more than a coincidence.
Some individuals may argue that race is not involved in police brutality. Peter King, a Republican, said regarding Eric Garner: “There was no damage to the wind pipe and no damage to the neck. If he had not been obese, if he had not had diabetes, and if he didn’t have asthma, this probably wouldn’t have happened.” Eric Garner’s death was ruled as a homicide caused by compression to his neck and chest, as well as the way he was positioned on the ground by police officers. His asthma, obesity, cardiovascular disease were also factors that led to his death which made the grand jury not to indict the police officer. Those who don’t believe in police brutality such as King did not factor race into the Eric Garner death at all.
In conclusion, there is plenty of evidence that the police use too much force when dealing with black males. We should move forward by putting body camera’s on police officers so there is more transparency and less debate of what actually happened. Peaceful protests by all communities should be welcomed. There might also need to be retraining of police officers so they can be better officers who serve and protect the community. The black community currently doesn’t have a trusting relationship with the police and feel targeted many times. The police department must work together with all of its citizens to stop this misunderstanding.

After viewing this film, I was reflecting on my childhood life, on the impact that my family has made on my life, they always supported me and helped me in any possible way. When I one day finish my education and pursue in the career that makes me and everyone happy, I want to really give back to my family and I am someone who would do anything for my family, and to me I feel that the idea of a family is very important in order to succeed and continue in life.
People always have to remember that what legacy do you want to leave or what you do to want people to remember you by. Even though Bilal has miscommunication and lack of trust between him and his family, I would have to say that I will have to agree with what choices he has made after his uncle passed away, the idea that what is the point in living life, if you cant have a career or job where it makes you happy. Some problems that take place during this films involves Bilal, struggling between attending college, and managing his family’s taxi business. One of the problems in this movie deals with going to the college he wants to go, but certain things happen that prevent him from going into that college, until he gets involved in the senior project with the idea of ice carving so he can get scholarships. Bilal’s role as a family member is to work in the taxi business and go to school. While the role that Bilal takes part in his school community doesn’t take place until his senior year, where he has to do decide what colleges he wants to attend in the near future, I would say that these are conflicting roles that Bilal faces throughout the movie because he keeps secrets and not telling his family important things like college applications, and instead gives in his college application, and takes up ice carving without telling anyone in his family, and that contradicts with the daughter ask her mom at the end of the movie if she wont let Bilal do what he wants to do, then she wont let her daughter do the same. Some of the similarities I would say that I share with Bilal involves the idea around how can I give back to my family and how will I make the world a better place with my own interests and traditions.
This film will act as a lasting catalyst for both my personal growth and awareness because whenever I am involved in any decision making, I always try to consult and share with anything that I do, because I don’t ever want to end up doing something that my family will not approve of because like I said there are many things that I really value in life and family is the most important aspect of my life, and it is also because you may not know some thing yet that your family already knows about. I really don’t quite agree with Bilal when he makes decisions in life without the regard and respect of his family. Everyone should always ask himself or herself why are they here for, what aspect in life do they really want to accomplish and who is it that they are ultimately doing this for and what will leave behind for people to remember them by. I will always remember that I am not living life so I can be happy, I want to try to make a everlasting impression on my family as a whole, who else will I will be working hard for if my family wasn’t there.
The key to an successful life is in my opinion, is having a good family oriented relationship, trust, communication, and always being responsible, and it doesn’t matter if you’re the youngest, oldest, or in my case the eldest child. In general, we are all human beings sent by God to do-good things and live life to your full potential. Whether we like it or not, god is always testing us and always sees everything that we do, and how we are impacting the world and making it a better place with our inner talents that we all share, and how we are helping the less fortunate or people in need.

In Shirley Jackson’s story “ The Lottery” the story illustrates the purpose of family traditions, how it should be important in a social community. In “The Lottery” the elder that takes part in the village tries to maintain order and stability in order to keep traditions and values alive, even though community members try to avoid or feel disconnected from this annual ritual that has been going on for a long time. I described the elder that is known as Mr. Summers this way because he has such a great personality where he would have no wife or children because he was so passionate in what he was doing for the community and never had time for anything else. “ The lotteries were conducted as were the square dances by Mr. Summers who had time and energy to devote to civic activities.” Preserving rituals often leads to peace within the community preventing violence or from other who are being tyrant. The society in “The Lottery” portrays a violent community. Through my analysis of The Lottery, I am trying to prove that a society should be kept harmoniously based on important traditions and values.
Based on my own interpretation, I believe that this story by Shirley Jackson deals with plot, where many people would gather in this event, where the person who is in charge of all the events picks names of people and when it was Tessie Hutchinson’s family’s turn, she would pick a paper with a black mark on it, which would result in Tessie and her family in becoming angry and at the end she would end up saying that it is just not fair and she would get stones thrown at her. The plot that I enjoyed reading the most was the part when Mr. Summers who was in charge of the events that take place would have names of the people and see whether they were actually there, where Tessie Jackson would pick out a paper that would happen to have a black mark on it.
Likewise in The Lottery by Shirley Jackson, it deals with a society, on how they have trouble accepting change or it takes people a while to get used to new things. Even though Mr. Summers put his entire life into taking the responsibility of taking care of the events and rituals of the entire village, his job was to run the coal business and he loved devoting and giving his time to civic activities at the village, and a lot of the people felt sorry for him because he had no wife and children, and he has such a good personality because he is always giving his time to his duties and the people. One of the character who is against the rituals that take place in the village is Old Man Warner, because he thinks a lot of the people have to stop taking part because it will make them turn into a savage and cruel state, and how he doesn’t like change, and how he wants it to go back the way it used to be, and how he believes every year the people taking in the tradition are always changing it for the better. If I were to describe more in depth of Mr. Summers character, I would say that he would fall in the three archetypes called The Sage, The Ruler , and The Innocent. I picked the first archetype because I feel that Mr. Summers has the gifts of being optimistic, having hope, and simplicity. In the category called “The Ruler, I feel that the thing that stands out and helps describe Mr. Summers where it says the category of gift/ virtue has to do with responsibility, control, sovereignty, savvy system. And I picked “ The Innocent” because the gift and virtue is similar to the character of Mr. Summers, how he shows optimism, trust, hope, faith, and simplicity. I picked these specific archetypes to show that Mr. Summer is someone who wants to keep order and stability within the community, and how he always devotes his time to the community with no regard to having his own family.
Although traditions in a social community would lead as a result of chaos and violence, I believe that in general of a social community should try to live in peace where people and certain families follow traditions that have been a certain part of their culture from generation to generations and it will lastly bring a very important impact for future age groups and peer groups. Reading the lottery by Shirley Jackson have made get a better understanding of the story as a whole and it also made me think of different people from different cultures like to follow traditions and values shared within a family and it also made me look at the other perspective of people going against traditions.
