  • Jail Or Rehab: The Governments Choice - 345 words
    Jail Or Rehab: The Government's Choice In order to solve a problem, the cause must be understood.

The current system for addressing drug use is a combination of police enforcement, prosecutorial laws, treatment and education. Stricter laws and increased police enforcement have been attempted, and have failed. Focusing all of our efforts on education would be a worthwhile alternative, but not the optimum. It would ta ...

  • James Baldwins Going To Meet The Man - 908 words
    James Baldwin's Going To Meet The Man One Never forgets What They are Taught James Baldwin, an African American author born in Harlem, was raised by his violent step-father, David. His father was a lay preacher who hated whites and felt that all whites would be judged as they deserve by a vengeful God (Klinkowitz and Pritchard, p.1999). Usually, the father's anger was directed toward his son through violence. Baldwin's history, in part, aids him in his insight of racism within the family. He understands that racists are not born, but rather racists' attitudes and behaviors are learned in the early stages of childhood. Baldwin's Going to Meet the Man is a perfect example of his capability to ...
