Should I be a Racist?

Look at that niggar run! A phrase said many times in my younger years during professional football, basketball, and even baseball games. As my step-father would sit in his chair watching sports, mainly on Sundays, there would be the loud yelling of racial slur against the African American race. Words that were spoken didn’t faze any of the family members that either lived in the house or were visiting. It was a normal thing in the area in which I grew up. From as far back as I can remember I was taught that if you were white you weren’t right sort of speak. The people that are on welfare, in gangs, killed, robbed stores or rapped were black. The only race that was negatively talked about was the black race. I never really knew why and didn’t ever question it.
I remember taking a trip to Florida when I was a junior in high school to see my sister and being raised like I was made it very difficult for me to enjoy my trip because there were those bad men. A story comes to mind from this trip that had me so scared. We had just gotten to Bradenton, FL and my step-father had gotten lost. Of course back then there weren’t cell phones so my step-father pulled into a gas station and told me to call my sister on the pay phone. I went to get out and every person at the gas station was black. Now remembering everything that I had been taught up to this time I was scared that something was going to happen to me. I walked very quickly to the phone booth and slammed the door shut called my sister, almost in tears, and got the directions. Walked very quickly back to the car and got in as fast as I could. My step-father looked at me and said, “did you see the way those niggars looked at you? Like a piece of meat?” I said, “No, I was too scared so I called my sister here are the…...

Why I Should Be Allowed to Partcipate in Drug Court

...Why I Should Be Allowed to Participate in Drug Court The past month has definitely been a learning experience for me. The biggest lesson that I have learned would have to be about complacency. Since I first started attending AA & NA meetings I have heard people say that they became complacent. They felt comfortable where they were in their sobriety and decided that it was okay to slack off a little bit. It was okay to miss the occasional meeting and not call their sponsor every day. Ultimately this always led to a relapse. I was lucky enough to not reach the point of relapsing even though I had become extremely complacent. I was comfortable with my job and only going to group once a week for one hour. I was doing the bare minimum when it came to my weekly meetings instead of going to a meeting a day like I was when I started Drug Court. I have learned that even though a job and a social life are important, I need to be sure that my sobriety comes first. I feel as though I was only days away from a relapse because of the people that I was surrounding myself with and situations that I allowed myself to be apart of. Thankfully I had a major wake up call and was allowed the opportunity to take a step back and see the error of my ways. That being said, I want to be able to participate in Drug Court ultimately so that I can grow. Staying sober wasn’t necessarily an issue for me because I was pretty much given an ultimatum: stay clean or go to prison. By......

Should I Buy New Equipment Now?

...Get started on the assignment by watching the Should I Buy New Equipment Now? video on the link below then answer the following questions. The engraving department uses an aging rotary engraver to engrave plaques and trophies. The machine has been reliable, but requires regular maintenance and periodic replacement of parts. Charlie has just found out that this engraver will no longer be supported by the manufacturer. This means that service and parts will be hard to get in the future and if it breaks it could take up to three weeks to get a new machine up and running. They keep this machine running almost 8 hours a day, every day. Each day that the engraver is down will cost around $975 in lost income. If Charlie has to buy a new engraver, it would cost around $25,000. Charlie can get a one-year loan at 12% to buy a new engraver, but he worries that this is a lot of money to spend, especially since the old engraver is still working fine. He has to make a decision. Should he purchase a new engraver now or wait until the old engraver breaks before ordering a new engraver? What you know: New engraver cost: $25,000 One-year loan cost: 12% interest Revenue per day from engraving: $975 Profit margin on engraving: 25% Potential days lost, if engraver breaks: 18 What you are looking for: 1.

Should I Care About the Environment

...Should I care about the environment ? Green Supply Chain As customers becomes more aware about the environmental changes, suppliers and buyers have to adapt and become environmental friendly to meet the customers needs. Companies will have to take into consideration about how green their manufacturing processes and supply chain are, their carbon footprint and how they recycle. Business have to learn how to green their supply chain and reduce cost. Business have to operate in a environmentally, ethically and socially responsible manner. Public scrutiny of business behaviour has led to rising expectations that companies are responsible for the environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices of their suppliers. A Green Sustainable Supply Chain can be defined as "the process of using environmentally friendly inputs and transforming these inputs through change agents - whose byproducts can improve or be recycled within the existing environment.( ). A sustainanble supply chain can be created by developing outputs that can be reclaimed and re-used at the end of their life cycle .The main purpose of this sustainable supply chain is to reduce cost and help the environment. In today's "sustainable" world the thinking should be what is the life cycle costs of this part, piece of equipment or supply chain process.( ......

How Should I Live

...How Should I Live? With each decision, we constantly ask ourselves, “Is this the right decision?” Sooner or later, we are all presented with the task to choose between what is right and what is easy. In one of my favorite novel series, Harry Potter, Albus Dumbledore says to Harry, “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” (Rowling 1998, 219) This is true. Our decisions in life, our struggles, selections, and choices, are the bindings to our stories; ultimately holding together what makes us who we are, just as Dumbledore said. How should we live our lives? It is not a question that can be simply stated in a few words. One word out of the posed question is the main subject- “live”. What does it mean to truly live and what is the best way to do it? I think it is a mixture of many things. However, out of many lifestyles that involve moral behavior, I think the life of an altruist is an extremely honorable one, and it is one by which I want to model my life. In order to do good, one must know evil. So, what is evil? What makes good people do bad things? According to Philip Zimbardo, “evil consists in intentionally behaving in ways that harm, abuse, demean, dehumanize, or destroy innocent others -- or using one’s authority and systemic power to encourage or permit others to do so on your behalf” (Zimbardo 2007, 5). Throughout history, we have seen multiple examples of evil acts; from the Rwandan Genocide to Abu Ghraib to the......

Why I Should Go to Esl273

...Why should I move onto ESL 273 It is often said that it is the first step that is troublesome. I admit that I had many troubles at the beginning of this course. However, everything had changed. I am not longer a girl who doesn’t even know how to write a coherent and logical essay; I am a girl who can organize my essay sufficiently and express the central idea of my essay clearly. My organization of the essay used to be weak, but I was never willing to give up. After writing and practicing several essays, I feel that I had made great progress in the writing. For instance, I am able to use transitional sentences in my essays so that they will be more organized. Also, I had learned how to arrange my essay in order to make each of the paragraphs to be connected. On the other hand, I see the organization as the most important part of the writing. People may misunderstand my ideas that I want to show them because my organization is messy. Therefore, I spend time to reading and learning how to organize the essays.As a result, I am able to separate my essay orderly. Since I could dominate these basic writing skills, I have been confident to take next challenge course. Grammar, is the weakest part of my writing, cause I to lose points for essay. To be honest, I felt very uncomfortable and nervous when I was writing. Although I wrote some simple sentences, I still made many mistakes. For example, I always forgot to add “s” after a verb for the third person. I used to read some......

Racist Is as Racist Does

...‘Racist is as racist does’ is an article written by Carolyn Cooper a professor of literary and cultural studies at the University of the West Indies, Mona. The article was published in the Jamaica Gleaner on Sunday January 29, 2012. Ms Cooper’s article gives her audience a treat with diverse perspectives on racism and real life expressions most Jamaicans could find relatable. In her persuasive delivery she places great emphasis on the distinction between the hidden and upfront racists. The article boldly opens with strong statements about the barefaced convictions of some racists who do not shy away from their beliefs. The argument progresses and introduces us to the other racists that are more elusive in their position. Cooper takes her readers on a historical journey of facts that leads to situational scenarios which mocks the categorical racists as she has defined them, supporting her views by a well laid analogy of the breadfruit which most Jamaicans would appreciate. ‘Racist is as racist does’ unfolds relatable experiences and information with humour, supportive content and objectivity that makes the article a delightfully balanced work. The organization of the work is somewhat disjointed and has a lapse in fluency in the beginning, when Cooper takes us through historical facts that may have bearing on the core of what she is attempting to communicate but appears to be a roundabout way to get to her ultimate resolve. However once she recoups we find a delightful......

Where Should I Go?

...I want to share to u a POEM I made when I was on my high school year.i think I was on my 2nd year at high is entitled "Where Should I go?" Well, it’s only now that I come to realized that i had chosen this topic because I was in the period of searching for myself. A period where I don't know where I'm going and heading. I was in a total confusion of where I should go.. Guess an identity crisis?!.. Well, I was in my teen age years and that's the problem of people when they are in that stage...   This was part of our requirements at school in our English subject. I was inspired to do this poem although it was a requirement then. Where Should I go? It was more of my search about me and my sense of direction in life. I am now 22 years old and had graduated from the degree Bachelor of Science major in Psychology. I really did learned a lot from schools especially during my college years. And this is where I’ve fully realized my attitude then and why I wrote this poem...   When we are in our adolescent stage (12-19), there are a lot of things we are thinking. This is where the identity formation develops. This is where we begin to build that identity within us. Most of the people at this stage are rebellious. Probably that's their way of finding who they are. There are a lot of confusions going on at this stage. Sometimes, most feel like they are living alone especially when they have no friends to talked to...But i cannot say that this is bad stage of human because...

Why Should I Be Selected for the Scholarship Program

...Prajeev Tulsidas Kanjiani residing in Singapore. I am 21 years old who is persistent, goal oriented and conscientious. When I heard that ACCA is offering a scholarship, I was very elated to apply because I am cognizant that this opportunity seldom occurs and therefore I want to explore my chance of obtaining a scholarship awards. I believe that an award of scholarship can help me to realize my full potential in various ways. I believe that a scholarship award will help me to impart my requisite skills and knowledge to the wider society and by doing so; I will also fulfill my national and societal role. Right from the start, my attitude towards the ACCA course has been to take up new challenges and overcome them one at a time. This is evident from my consistent high scores, which helped me secure the top ranks in Singapore in the following subjects - 1st in Paper T3, 2nd in Paper F6, and 3rd in Paper T6. I also secured world ranks in Paper T3 and T6 - 3rd and 6th respectively. Hard work and dedication have similarly resulted in my obtaining an overall score of 87 in CAT and 80 in ACCA till date. I am currently working towards securing a world rank in my remaining subjects. My short term goal is to be a part of a financial team. I am committed to growing in that field in order to accomplish my long term goal of becoming a crucial part in running a company. Since I have a good merit and distinction in ACCA examinations, I am confident of my application for the Simpson......

What Should I Do?

...What Should I Do? First off I would begin to reassure Kim that I understand that she has never been through a planning process before, so there’s no need for her to panic. I would then explain to her that the departmental plan is merely a written explanation on how to accomplish and to achieve the objectives discussed and agreed upon in last month’s meeting. I would then begin to tell her to utilize and incorporate her expertise of her 7 years as a sales specialist. She should deal directly with the warehouse clerks and get a printout of what time of the month or year sales is at its peak. I would first suggest that she juts down the specifics on what takes place daily in her department, and also I would suggest that other associates in that department compile the same thing and submit them to Kim. That way she will get the gist of what everyone in her department does and everyone would then be in agreement with that objective. Kim should also seek the previous manager for advice and expert advice if at all possible. I think that Kim’s initial reaction to the planning process is a usual one. Everyone if put into a new position would get cold feet. Even if you have had experience in and with a company for years, your new roll and what is expected in a promotion is new. No one knows what to expect until trained and it is okay to ask questions. Until she becomes familiar with what is expected of her, any new task will seem overwhelming, until she gets the hang of it....

...How Should I touch You? How Should I touch You? Grand Canyon University: NRS 433V September 18, 2011, 2011 ‘How Should I Touch You?’ Would you prefer a nurse of the same sex or one of opposite sex than you to be touching you? In this case, the research is being done on intimate touches. As nurses, we spend a lot of time doing one on one with our patients; we touch patients when performing assessments, when we want to provide comfort or showing care. The aim of this research was to find out whether or not patients had more concerns from male or female nurses when it comes to intimate touches, the study wanted to see the attitudes or response of the ordinary person when it comes to touching. Finally, because there have not been much research done on the subject, this research wanted to provide guidance on how intimate touches should be provided by nurses. Quantitative or Qualitative This qualitative research was performed in a small group of 24 ordinary individuals who had no relations with the healthcare field. Using semi structured interviews; these individuals were separated into small focus groups, these groups were not designed to obtain consensus but rather to get a variety of experiences, views and attitudes.

...role for ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’. It’s now been revealed that rumour was only half true, because Snyder has confessed that he wanted Bale in the ‘Man Of Steel’ sequel, but in a completely different role to Batman. Snyder admitted to Film Ink that this would have been the ultimate proof that ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ was in a completely different universe and reality to ‘Batman Begins’, ‘The Dark Knight’, and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. “This is a total and opposite reality from the Chris Nolan movies,” Zack Snyder remarked. “It’s another universe, so we couldn’t hire Christian Bale if we wanted to, because he doesn’t exist in our world. Maybe we could hire him to play another part. We did talk about that briefly. I just wanted to hire Christian to play another part to make that obvious.” Zack Snyder then joked that Bale could have been plastered with make-up and then portrayed Alfred Pennyworth, a role that Jeremy Irons has in ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.’...
