The last book we read was very intersting. Two essays, one dealing with race and the other with homosexuality. As far as the one dealing with race, the discussion in class brought up two different points. I come from an average suberb, but it is a pretty rich area and many stuck up people. Throughout elementry, middle, and high school, there was never over 15 african americans who attended. There was also many vandalism crimes towards them, and the school would have a few seminars about respect each year. A lot of people in my school were used to getting what they wanted and not having any consequences. Very unreal, and i do not agree with that.
