Menace Ii Society

584 words, 3 pages

Intro Sample...


Our parents struggle to teach us to remain focused in terms of our education, and eventually a meaningful career. We can either respect them and do as they say or follow our so-called friends, who may lead us into an obsession into negative downfalls of our society such as promiscuous sex, illegal mind-altering drugs, and gangs. We can't serve two gods. Because Caine chose that type of lifestyle, he was stripped of the privilege of living with the ones who took care of him. He has a best friend named O-Dog, who is wanted by the police. Caine also had a girlfriend who he impregnated but abandoned. This demonstrates the theme of blind love. This couple must've felt a lustful emotion and confused with love, to conceive a baby. When the baby is born, all of a sudden, Caine wants nothing to do with them. It shows that this wasn't love. Love doesn't result in betrayal, especially at that extent. Consider having a new life to care for, and the one who helped you produce the offspring won't help you take care of them. It probably ruined her future. It is also an extreme curse for her family as well, because they are struggling to take care of the child as well as take care of themselves. The only positive influence is Ronnie, a young single parent trying to raise her child. As stated early, raising a child by yourself is intensely difficult. Experience is the best teacher, and for that reason, she learned from her own responsibility that the 'hood' mentality is not the proper path to follow in life View More »

    Person-first Language, Is It Actually Necessary?

    2870 words, 12 pages

    Disability and language is a major topic in society; people feel offended or excluded due to labels. Person-first language was thus created to allow people with disabilities to feel more included in society and not feel looked-down upon. It is now enforced to say “person with a disability” rather than “disabled person” as to not have them feel excluded. But is this really all that effective? If looked under a light of language, it seems ridiculous to rearrange words and extend sentences just to cater to people’s sensitive needs. Language is meant to be short and concise, whereas person-first l
