Hustle & Flow

Posted on 01/25/06 at 04:13:06 pm by Johnny

I like the movie Hustle & Flow, cause it is about a rapper name Djay. He got thrown in the joint for beating up another rapper.At th end he is still in the joint.

Basketball is the best.

Posted on 01/25/06 at 04:11:36 pm by Patricia

Basketball is great becouse if you play you can use a lot of musals and energe.But you can be very halthy and do a lot of things like football,baseball.Basket ball is popular becouse people like the players becouse they are good.I don't realy have a favorit team becouse i like them all.But if I had to pick a player I would probale pick Shack O'Neil.But like I said don't have a favorit team.

My Faborite Movie

The second basketball team I like is the Heats becuase they have good players. My favorite basketball player is Shaq.

Fantastic Four

Posted on 01/25/06 at 03:27:59 pm by David

I think that the Fantastic Four is a good movie , because it shows alot about science , and you can learn alot about it , like when Mr.Fantastic tells Doctor Doom what happens to metal at high temperatures.

mean girls

Posted on 01/25/06 at 03:15:53 pm by Alejandra

Becuse it show not to be mean to others and dont get back at pepole for the old day .
JUST try to get along with every one in your school and then you whout get in trouble. trust me on that one.I like this move becuse it shows how to get along with oter prpole and to not get back at pepole.and it is very hard to understasnd win u bearly see it it's very good for pepole.

yes becuse its not very good for kids to see that stuff .becused then they in up to try doig that kind of stuff . music yes becuse kids start doing drugs and sart saing they are in ssl and west and east thas all stuped.

My Favorite Moive is Hoodwinked

Posted on 01/25/06 at 03:14:05 pm by Chelsea

My favorite movie is Hoodwinked, because it is a funny movie. The most that I admire is Red. Why do do you like Red? I like Red because she could fight the wolf, and she is smarter than the wolf too.Do you have a second most caritor? Yes I do, And it is the sqrell, becase he is funny and he talks very fast. Even when you give him coffe then you would be in trouble, he would get very hipper. What do you like on Hoodwinked?

Yes, I do think violence in movies are bad for people, because it makes little kids doing violence like that.

the white man

Posted on 01/25/06 at 01:08:37 pm by Adrian

white man will always have power in the U.S. it will always be like that.The only way it will change if the goverment will help us native americans out,and not really stop helping the blacks and other people,but at least act like we are here on this earth.All these promise's they made us and didint do it,once they think that were here then we can start building what we started.Help us with our education on the rez,help us get nice houses
then it will change.When they start helping us out,but that will never happen they will never think of us,all they think of us as drunks,poor people.All they think about is there self the dont give a dang about us,native americans,all they think about is other people,people that arent native.But there are some who care but thats just a maybe 5 to 10 people who care but thats not enough.As long as whites are on this earth it will always be this way.

Are We equal

Posted on 01/25/06 at 01:04:47 pm by Javier

I think men are not equal to women because we're stronger and more intelligent.I think that allmost all the people think that. I dont now why there are more women going to college then men. Probably more woman go to college because a lot of men get involved with gangs and drugs.

September 11

Posted on 01/25/06 at 01:04:11 pm by Ashlee

I was at school when September 11 happen.I don't really remember what happen that day. I feel that terrorism is getting bad. I wouldn't be afraid if terrorists were to attack in Farmington. Farmington is to small.

September 11th

Posted on 01/25/06 at 12:58:02 pm by Shanna

I was at school on September 11th when it happened. Two planes hit the towers and they both collapes. I feel that terrorism today is bad. No, I'm not afraid of terrorism will attack Farmington.

September 11th

Posted on 01/25/06 at 12:55:31 pm by Warren

I remember this day it was very horrible to see all the people crying for the people that died in the world trade center.i don't think that the terrorists would not attack farmington becouse farmington is like the smallies city. I think the terrorists hate the US is becouse the U.s.a has the most amunition in war battle.

hiphop

Posted on 01/25/06 at 12:52:38 pm by Chantel

I think that hip-hop is way different from rap. Hip-hop has more rythem. Rap has the same rythem but no beat. I like to listen to mostly hip-hop. I listen to Pretty Ricky, Slim Thug,and for rap I like to listen to spanish rap like Lil Rob, and S.P.M.

Salma Hayek

Posted on 01/25/06 at 12:44:07 pm by Javier

I admire Salma because she was the first Mexican to find a job in Hollywood.When she was a little gril she dreamed about becoming a movie actress. Her parents decided to send her to the united states to finish her education.After many years of education she became a movie actress.

Racism

Posted on 01/25/06 at 12:05:04 pm by Ryan

Racism is a big problem because people make people sad. they talk about color and size, and face people really get mad about that and they started to beat you up so don't make fun about people like that. or your life is all gone. if you see a person sad make them feel happy and walcome to the world and tell them you can make friends in the world.

Heath's Favorite Movies

Posted on 01/22/06 at 08:54:45 pm by Heath

My favorite movies would have to be: Hotel Rwanda and The Shawshank Redemption. Both are really good stories that should be told.

In a nutshell, Hotel Rwanda is based on the true life story of Paul Rusesabagina during the genocide of 800,000 people in Rwanda. Rusesabagina is a hotel manager that saved over a thousand Tutsi refugees from the ruling Hutu tribe during the 100 day campaign of genocide in Rwanda.

The Shawshank Redemption is a story about Andy Dufresne, a city banker, wrongfully convicted of murdering his wife and her lover. He is sent to Shawshank Prison in 1947 and befriends "Red". The movie chronicles their lives and friendship.

Xtra Credit: There is a lot of violence in movies, music and pop culture in general. Heck, don't forget video games. I also think that seeing and hearing all of this violence desensitizes people. Plus, if peoples heroes and role models glorify violence, what message does this send? Violence is very bad but unfortunately we send youth mixed messages.

Hi 4th Hour,

There has never been a minority President of the United States. Do you think a minority will be President in your lifetime?

White men are only 39.2% of the U.S. population but they make up approximately 90% of all state governors and 77% of the U.S. Congress. Why do you think white men dominate our government? Should our government look more like the rest of us? If you could vote, would you like to vote for minority candidates?

Hi 4th Hour,

For your third assignment, please write at least 5 sentences in response to the following definition and questions.

What is "hip-hop"?: Hip-hop is a culture. The term is loosely used when referring to commercialized rap music, however hip-hop is more than just music. It is the heartbeat of American ghetto youth who claimed their own self-expression and used it to rise above their physical circumstances. Hip-hop culture has its roots in pride, truth, courage and self-determination. As a result it has grown to influence almost every segment of the planet.

Do you agree with this definition? How would you define "hip-hop"? Who are your favorite hip-hop performers and why?

Extra Credit: Hip-hop lyrics and videos often glorify violence. Do you think this violence influences people your age? Why do you think hip-hop artists embrace violence? Answer in at least 5 sentences.

White men are only 39.2% of the U.S. population but they make up approximately 90% of all state governors and 77% of the U.S. Congress. Why do you think white men dominate our government? Should our government look more like the rest of us? If you could vote, would you like to vote for minority candidates?

Hi 2nd Hour,

For your third assignment, please write at least 5 sentences in response to the following definition and questions.

What is "hip-hop"?: Hip-hop is a culture. The term is loosely used when referring to commercialized rap music, however hip-hop is more than just music. It is the heartbeat of American ghetto youth who claimed their own self-expression and used it to rise above their physical circumstances. Hip-hop culture has its roots in pride, truth, courage and self-determination. As a result it has grown to influence almost every segment of the planet.

Do you agree with this definition? How would you define "hip-hop"? Who are your favorite hip-hop performers and why?

Extra Credit: Hip-hop lyrics and videos often glorify violence. Do you think this violence influences people your age? Why do you think hip-hop artists embrace violence? Answer in at least 5 sentences.

7th HOUR ASSIGNMENT 8

Posted on 01/13/06 at 07:30:21 am by manderson

Illegal immigration has been made a hot button issue in our country lately. What are your views on illegal immigration? Is illegal immigration a problem? Why or why not?

Why would illegal immigrants want to come to America? Is it wrong for someone to enter America illegally so they can pursue a better life and help their families?

Do you feel illegal immigrants help or hurt America and our economy? Provide examples.

An estimated 10-20 million law abiding illegal immigrants already live, work and raise families in America. What should happen to these people? Should these people be deported? Or, should these people be eligible for amnesty and eventual US citizenship?

Lastly, do you feel that this illegal immigration debate unfairly targets the Hispanic population because of the color of their skin? Would America be having a debate over illegal immigration if the majority of illegal immigrants were white as opposed to brown?
