Joey Abely   What are the key beliefs in the Deep Story of the Right/Personal Protectionism? This is a right there question, asking you to summarize the Deep Story. “Trump adds a key proviso: restrict government help to real Americans. White men are counted in, but undocumented Mexicans and Muslims and Syrian refugees are out.

What vision of the future have academics and scholars pinned on Hawaii’s high-rate of intermarriage? On what facts and hopes have they based this vision? In Olson’s view, how likely is their vision of a racially-mixed future to be accurate? Many people in Hawaii come from the island and have been there for generations and generations.

Let’s Write: race

Let’s Write: race

Race is real and relevant to every single person on this world considering we are all part of one. But with race comes racism and there are many people who seem to be racist.

In english class we are now reading extremely complex pieces of writing.

Joey Abely   After reading A Toast Story there were certain concepts that pointed me in the right direction about finding my identity. One of those concepts included perseverance. Giulietta Carrelli had shown that after persevering through tough times to find her identity.
