Describe Sa' and Ch'idzigyaak's character traits. How are they similar? How are they different?
joathan walwyn

David's thoughts on teh subject : They're both old women. They are both living together trying to survive in iceland.
David Myers

Lakia's thoughts : they are both old and in harmony with David's comment, they are trying to survive. They have to eat the things that most wouldn't and they suffer through the cold weather and try to keep warm.

I agreed with Lakia and David's thoughts.

Nazim Hudda's Thoughts ---- Check Out The Two New Questions

Another question about Civil War: What are the three reasons for Civil War?
Here is my answer, but you all can still add more informations in, so we can learn about it: There are three reasons given for the American Civil War. The first is the institutionalization of slavery following the invention of the cotton gin, a machine for processing cotton. Cotton is the flower of a plant and slaves picked the cotton off the plant where it was then transported to cotton gins, cleaned and turned into threads. Cotton threads then went north to be woven into fabrics. Although slavery in the United States goes much further back, it was the economic dependence on slavery that created a widening gap between the culture of the south and the north, where the abolitionist movement was very popular. Writers like Harriet Beech Stowe and others were leaders in this movement. The second factor was called sectionalism. In 1800 1/2 of the population of the United States was in southern states, but by 1850 only a 1/3 was. Since slavery was justified by arguments that the Blacks were inferior beings, the South could not count them as population. This resulted in the north having more representation in Congress and the South increasingly less. The south viewed the 'contract' forming the union as the basis for the union's existence and therefore argued southern states, such as South Carolina felt they had a right to withdraw. Sectionalism led to talk of seceding. Pro-union argument held that the union was created by the whole population and only the whole population could agree to let any state seceed.

About the two old women – Remember they are in Alaska, not Iceland. Yes, they are both trying to survive. But how do they go about that differently? I find that Sa' seems more motivated to push forward and that she really encourages her friend Ch'idzigyaak. Do you all agree? Why/why not?

Civil War – what do you know about it? There are many misconceptions about the causes. What have you heard about why the Civil War occured?

Discussion Topic on Government and Constitutionalism:
Consider the beliefs and goals of the Federalists and Antifederalists. Compare their positions and speculate on which side you would support.
Extension question: Where should the greater decision-making power lie – with the nation or with the state? Give examples. Consider the varied functions of government.
joathan walwyn

yes i agree that she is trying to motivate her friend to do the same thing so they can find a way out of alaska . sa she is very attentive with find a way out and the other girl is just like what ever i dont care like she wants to die or something. i think that sa' can help her get motivated to get out of alaska all they have to do is put there thinking caps on and they are both very smart and two heads are better than one.

Another questoin about "Liberty's Kids" the tv show: Last week one the few times I was able to get home from school befor 5:00pm. I was fliping tv chanels when I foun this new tv show called "Liberty's Kids." At first I thought it was just some cartoon show little kids who are 5 years old, but it is more thin that. It is about three kids who would for Binjamen Franklin's new's paper during the founding of the United States. One is a boy who was born in France the other boy is born in the not yet US and the last one a Girl born in Britten. The cartoon "Liberty's Kids" is concerded to be history fiction. The cartoon is from the kids point of view of what happened in US histoery. During the show they break away from the story and tell names of things in old Enlish and give history pionts. "Liberty's Kids" PBS stations Chanel 30 and chanel 8. Chanel 30 at 4:30pm weekdays and chanel 8 Not shure time/day. I think that this show is something that ties in with what we are learning in class. So what do you think about "Libertys's Kids"? How about takinging time to watch it, like I do.
Rob MacGregor

Whick do u think should have more power and desition-making-ability-the national or state governments?
I think national government should have more power than the state government because the national government is bigger and needs more control than a state government.The national government needs to make better desitions for the nation because the national government controls the whole nation not jsut a small state. But the state also needs a lot of power to control it so the state can function well in the nation.

Who wrote the last response? Remember to add your name.
Rob, this show "Liberty's Kids" sounds neat. I will try to see it some weekday.
joathan walwyn

I Think that there should be a balance between the national and state government cause there are some matters that when are dealed by the state government are better and some matters where there is a need for a national government. Let us see two situations, one where the government has to determine how much taxes people should pay, here the national government would make a decision and ask people to pay certain percentage of taxes but what if some states are so poor that they cant afford to pay such taxes? In a situation like that, it is better for the stste government to have the power to determine how much taxes should one pay. In another case, if the matter is on whether to declare a war to a foreign country or not?, the national government has to decide cause one state might have good relations with the foreign country the other state is trying to declare war to.
I think that our system is best cause it almost succeds to maintain a balance between the state and national government.
Nazim Hudda

I was thinking of a question and would like to share with you all.
Do you think that slavery is right?
Where would have setteled (North Or South) in the 19th century?Why?
What if you were a congressman from either if the two parts, what would have done to make sure the South and North alligh with each other, would you have agreed to the Compromise of 1850?
Nazim Hudda

Here are some causes of the Civil War that I found in the book, and hopefully, it will help you to understand more about it..~
1. In the North, millions of dollars were invested in transportation for trading advantages.
2. People used farming machines and sewing machines.
3. Young people from the South rushed to Philadelphia and Lowell for jobs.
4. In the south, there were poor farmers and plantations.
5. Southerners were slower to take advantage of technological advanced in transportation.
6. Children born in slavery, received only 2 shirts a year.
7. Some slaves poisoned their masters for freedom.
8. White believed that slavery was meant to be that way.
9. Owners considered slaves as properties.
10. Irish immigrants often competed with blacks for unskilled jobs.

What was the underground railroad?
After the Revolutionary war, the underground railroad was started by abolitionists in the North. Not a rail road, it was a high secret trail that led from southern states to Canada and freedom for slaves. Along the trail, slaves were given shelter and food as well as guides to help their escape. One of the most famous of these slaves, who came back to help others like herself escape, was Harriet Taubman. Estimates suggest that 100,000 blacks achieved freedom but no one really knows because of the incredible secrecy maintained.
Was the North justified in its position that once a state entered into an agreement to form a union with other states that the state cannot decide to withdraw without the consent of all the other states? ~ What is everyone's opinion for this question?
I think an argument can be made, using divorce as an example, that the contract to form a union the constitution and did not forbid states from seceding. It is like forcing someone to stay married as long as the other partner refuses to accept a divorce.
Hoa Vu

Who was General Mclellan?
General McClellan was almost lost the war for the North. A general with gifts for organizing and for speech, he was unwilling to see his men engage in conflict. He was famous for his delays and his 'retreats' which he called "moving to another base of operations." One of his habits was to greatly over estimate the number of confederates ready to fight him. Lincoln had put him in charge of the Union Army after the first battle of Bull Run, which was a loss for the union. When Robert E. Lee was placed in charge of the confederate army, McClelland said Lee was "timid and irresolute in action". Lee immediately attacked and beat McClelland back.
Hoa Vu

Was the war to free the slaves?
The war was not originally intended to free the slaves. It was to preserve the union and deny the rights of states to withdraw in effect, asserting that the states were under the control of the union and not independent. Abolitionists pushed Lincoln to free the slaves and under this pressure (for there were votes) and due to his own dislike of slavery, he issued the Emancipation Proclamation toward the end of the war. If the south had surrendered (it's loss was predictable at that time) Lincoln would not have signed the proclamation. After the war, the carpet baggers were men who went south to take advantage of the fact the confederate government had collapsed and new state governments had to be created. Some say they were named after bags made of carpet material that carried their possessions; others because they carried notes that were not honored by any established bank. For example, they paid themselves and their accomplices from the school fund no child received any education for two years as a result. Securities were sold at 1/3 their value and the money went into the pockets of these men. Another example, 14 million went to build a railroad yet not one track was laid. This 'reconstruction' effort left bad feelings that continue to this day.

Another question about civel war: Why did the Southern Confederacy states what to kill Whit soldiers captured in charged of black troops in the Union Army and the same for the black soldiers as well? I mean didn't the Confederates have black troops in the war or was that alot later in the war. I guess the confederates were scared that if they get let the slaves leaves plantations to fight that there could be a uprise on questining their rights. I guess the order to kill black regiments from the north Union States would deter the slaves in the south from trying to escape to go fight in the war. But the war was not just about slavery. One main reason was that Union side wanted their government to be the government to rule the U.S. and the Confedercy wanted to break away and Form their own country. Well do you think some people still the same way to day?
Rob MacGregor

they just wanted to make sure that the slaves knew they would be killed if they were caught. but i think that some people don't want a part of the country anymore. the people may think that the federal government is gaining lots of power and that government officials are corrupt. the constitution isn't up to date and i think that we should revise it...not just add an amendment but change the whole thing.
evan wills

Here's a question!
What do you think would be the reason for the difference in economies in the North and South?
I think that the main reason for the difference in economies is due to the availablity of fertile land n the south. People in the south have land, they think that land is the only way to earn good money. They were not well educated and hence they did not knew the developement in the technology. Where as the North had machines, Industries and was well connected with the devolopement in the technology so was able to maintain the diversified economy.
I think that this was one of the reasons that led to civil war because, the south with its fixed economy, needed more workers due to lack of technology and hired slaves for the job. The north did not need a large amount of workers because it had machines to do so. Hence it was against slavery. The mismatch of the ideas led to the civil war.

I dont think slavery was right. It deprived the african americans from reading and a whole of other things such as being a HUMAN. We as black people was treated so badly. After the civil war yes the slaves were let go, but what about where they were going to live. Still depriving the slaves. How were they going to get food? Did anyone think about that? Nia G.Oliver

I agree with the under ground rail road because it is an example of black people helping each other,rather than blacks fighting against each other.There are more blacks fighting against each other in this day and time than there has ever been before.During the time of the under ground rail road blacks helped each other,maybe if there was more of that maybe society wouldn't be the way it is today.Nia G.Oliver

Hey Mrs.Godbee
What was the reason that Lincoln not let the south succeed?
Lincoln was a moderate Republican and while he did not want to see slavery expanded he was content to let the south continue to keep slaves. He was a compromise candidate and won because the other candidates were dividing both parties. Once in office, Lincoln acted on the view that the Union could not allow any state to secede. He was supported by abolitionists who saw the war as a way to end slavery, but the war was very unpopular among the working class-those that would have to fight in the war. There were many riots when attempts were made to force men to serve in the army.The minute Lincoln was elected, South Carolina withdrew from the Union and other states including Georgia, soon did as well. They took over Union forts within their boundaries and tried to blockade other forts to prevent them from receiving supplies and arming against the insurrectionists. Confederate soldiers fired on ships arriving at Fort Sumter and Lincoln declared war. There was a debate as to whether or not the war was a war or an insurrection (a kind of civil disorder).

Name and describe 3 significant battles from the beginning, middle, end of the war.
Sept 17, 1862 Antietam the union lost this battle, it was a victory for Stonewall Jackson. 23,000 men were killed.
July 1-3 the battle of Gettysburg Robert E. Lee against General Meade, commander of the Army of the Potomac. On the first day, John Bulfred of the Union Army Calvary, with his men on foot, held the high ground against the confederates. On the second day, the Union army, holding the high ground (Little Round Top) beat off wave after wave of confederate soldiers-6,000 confederates were killed, 8,900 union soldiers. But it was the turning point of the war.
On the third day, Pickett's charge (confederate army) against Cemetery Ridge was a defeat for the confederates. They were unable to successfully gain the position held by the Union's left flank, from which they would have been able to successfully defeat the Union.
The final battle, Lee's last offensive, was in Petersburg, Virginia on 3/25/65, the capital of the confederacy. He lost and on 4/9/65 he surrendered to Grant in a small town called Appomattox.

Hi everyone. I have enjoyed reading your posts. I do want to specify, however, how the Swiki should be used. Raise questions that have you and your classmates think deeply about issues. Strictly fact-based conversation loses flare quickly. There can be little discussion about a factual definition or about the date an event occured. Rather, pose questions about whether words should be defined differently or why events occured on particular dates. When you have questions, raise them. You might want to give your opinion, but leave room for others to answer too. Think of this as an on-going dialog with your classmates. What would you like to discuss with them? And remember: Always use your own ideas and your own words, and give others credit for their ideas and their words. Copying what other people or other sources say is plagiarism.

Here's a Question again:
Do you think that Colonel Robert Shawn in the movie Glory, took the right desicion of treating his troop members as strict as possible, even his best friends? Was he successful in what he was trying to achieve? Why or why not?
Nazim Hudda

I would like to say that Colonel did the right thing, leaders in an army or militia are always strict but in this situation Colonel had his friends to deal with, but he took the right choice and changed the life of both of his friends. He became strict to both his friends, by this way, he made them hard, in sense he made them so strong that they could face any kind of troubles, even emotional. If he wouldnt have done that, his african friend(I dont remember his name rite now) would have never learned to fight cause he was so week. This shows that Shawn was successful in doing so.
You can add on if you want to.....
Nazim Hudda

Here are my PREDICTIONS on what would have happened if the south would have won the Civil War.
1. There would still be Slavery in the South and maybe in the North too.
2. The United States wouldn't be united i.e. the north and the south would be two different parts and not one nation.
3. If the south seceeded, it may have again been re-conqured by England or any other nation due to lack of unity.
4. U.S. Economy wouldn't be so strong as it is now.
5. There could be different kind of government in the south like Communist or Socialist etc.
6. Maybe North would have suceeded too and U.S. wouldn't exist.

Theese all could only be avioded by another War/Agreement/Treaty etc. but thank God, the North won the war and there wasn't any question of other options or else we could still be fighting for the freedom of the slaves.
Nazim Hudda

Notice that theese are my predictions (According to me what would have happened......) and could not compulsorily be right.
Nazim Hudda

The beliefs of the federalists and anti-federalists : The federalists were supporters of having a strong central government that would lead the nation. The anti-federalists were against this and against the constitution.
David Myers

Which side would I support? Personally, I think that I would be a federalist, because I think the government should have control over the country, but I think states should be allowed to have some power over what is happening in their state, but that they should have to request for permission to the high court to change state laws or whatever.
David Myers

To Nazim’s question about whether slavery is right or not, I definitely think it is wrong and I think it was very cruel of the white people to say that blacks were only 3/5th human.
I think if I was living back then I probably would of lived in the North. Also, I wouldn’t agree with the compromise of 1850, I mean all states shouldn’t have been allowed to have slaves, not just some.
David Myers

Here are some of my own questions and answers as to the different beliefs/ideas different people had about courtship.
First of all, what is courtship ?
Courtship is dating. Yet, in the 16-17 00s people had far different ideas as to how old people should be when dating. These people were much older, and the idea of teenagers dating was non-existent.
David Myers

What ideas/beliefs did the frontier or backcountry people have for courtship ?
It was a custom of these people to “steal” wives from other husbands. Even if they were getting married normally at the start of the wedding the groom would still come to “steal” his wife.
David Myers

What ideas/beliefs did the Puritans have for courtship ?
The puritans had two strange ideas in courtship. One was the use of a ‘courting stick’, which the couple were allowed to whisper into when they were alone .. weird … the other was the use of a ‘bundling board’ which was a wooden board which the couple would put between them as they lay in bed to separate them … weirder …
David Myers

What ideas/beliefs did the slaves in the south have?
These people would jump over a broomstick together in order to seal their marriage.
David Myers

What ideas/beliefs did the Quakers have ?
The Quakers had to go through a 16-step way to marry each other. They would have to have the whole villages consent in it. Quaker women often backed out at the last minute.
David Myers

What ideas/beliefs did the people in Virginia have ?
In virgina marriage was a ‘sacred union’. Marriages didn’t need love, and parents were negotiating about things to do with money probably with the other parents.
David Myers

To your question, Ms. Godbee,
I think that Colonel Shaw was in a tough position, as he had command over his friends. I think that maybe he shouldn’t have been so strict on them at all times, and let them know that it was for their own good. I also think that he shouldn’t have been so strict on the slaves, I mean, I know that he wasn’t racist, but the slaves could have got the wrong idea at the start.
David Myers

It is certainly interesting to ponder how the world would be different if events had led to different outcomes. What would the United States be today if the South had won the Civil War? Nazim, your question is very provocative. What do others of you think?
Beth Godbee

I feel that slavery was a very bad thing. They forced people to work and be owned with no say so. They deprived people of thier freedom which should never be taken away. Slaves were paid little to
nothing and were forced to live under poor conditions.
Shanell Merriwether

Nazim, you posed an imoprtant question about Colonel Shaw's treatment and management of troops, including his friend soldiers. We talked a little about this in class, but what do you all think about military training and policies? How should officers treat the people serving under them? How do you feel about the rankings?
Beth Godbee

Reminder: The men fighting for the 54th Massachusetts regiment were free people, not slaves. Some, such as Denzel Washington's character Trip, had run away from from slavery. Others, such as Thomas, were born free.
Beth Godbee

What would the u.s. be today if the south had won the civil war?
I Agree with nazim that the u.s would not be together and that there would be slavery in both the north and the south.
Shanell Merriwether

how should officers treat the people serving under them?
I feel that officers should treat those who are serving under them with more respect and more like equals. Although putting them down has been stated to benefit them by making them feel like they cant do anything else but that. I feel that if an officer treated his people better they would like him and have a greater desire to serve him and to be more successful.
Shanell Merriwether

Why do you feel the 54th Massachusetts regiment decided to fight?
I feel that those of the regiment felt they had a duty. They felt that there was a problem and that they needed to make a difference. The regiment had to prove something since much was not expected from african american soldiers. The regiment put their petty fears aside and all fought for one common cause. Which left them prosperous.
Shanell Merriwether

Why did african american men want so much to fight?
I think that the men wanted to fight so they could prove that black men,women,and children were good for more than just picking cotton and that they could help support the country they were living in. Also so they could mabey earn some kind of respect from the whites by putting there lives on the line. Many of the enlisted african americans were fighting for there freedom.
Jessyca Eberhardt

AFRICAN AMERICAN men wanted to fight in the war be cause they thought they weregoing to get the chance to fight for their freedom.They wanted to defeat the white men in the south to gain their freedom. I also think alot of them enlisted for thte $13.00 dolars they were supposed to recieve. thsat was a lot of money in those times.
JEREMY MOORE

HAS ANYONE EVER THOUGHT ABOUT THIS IN TODAYS SOCIETY IF SOME WHITE MEN HATE BLACK PEOPLE MAYBE THEY SHOULD ASK THEMSELVES WHY DID THEIR ANCESTORS BRING THEM HERE.
HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT WE DISCOVERD AMERICA IF THEIR WERE PEOPLE ALREADY HERE?
UNLESS YOU KNOW A DIRECT DESCENDANT OF A NATIVE AMERICAN THEN YOU DO NOT KNOW ANY ONE FROM AMERICA. THE USA IS A COUNTRY OF IMMIGRATION NO MATTER THE COLOR OR THE RACE OF A PERSON WE ARE ALL FROM SOME WHERE ELSE. EVEN INDIANS ARE FROM SOME WHERE ELSE BECAUSE THEY WALKED THE BEIRNG STRAIT OVER TO NORTH AMERICA.

Sa'and Ch'idzigyaak are very alike in the manner of them doing whatever to survive. They both have to go out and caught small game for them to eat.They have to make thier clothing, and home. They have to keep each others thoudhts positive.But with all that said Sa' is the more ready to get on the job and do person.Ch'idzigyaak is the one who wants to just sit and let whatever happens, happen. The two women are kind of use to having things done for them instead of doing for theselves so it takes some time before they relize that their life is now depending on them!

Black African Americans wanted to prove to the "white men " that they could do Something rather then black people being degraded by people who were on their level. I think what the white people did to the blacks was so wrong. I mean how would you like to be told to get up every morning and work for nothing. thats kind of hard
Nia G. Oliver

In the movie GLORY the men were fighting for their freedom. the right to do what they want to do.Even though the conditions were
VERY poor. the men didnt even have proper shoes on their feet. But if they had been whites they would have every thing they would have needed.

Why do you think that the Whites felt that they were superior to the Blacks? The Skin Color? How can ones skin color change the person you really are?

How do you guys feel about the 1ST Amendment?
Nia G. Oliver

To me it doesnt make sense. Your natural born right is to say what you want when you want. But the United States states that you have the "right" for freedom of speech. And what about religion? you should be able to have any type of religion with out someone telling you so. Please Post COMMENTS
Nia G. Oliver

I think that we the people do have freedom of speech,but the government expects us to know what to say and not to say.I feel that as far as religion goes we in U.S.A can pratice whatever as long as it isn't sacrificing people and things of that nature.
SABRINA BRIDGES

When you give your opinions, please remember to use examples and evidence to support them. Also edit your responses before posting them.
Beth Godbee

Nia, in the film Glory the white officers have enormous respect for the black soldiers. Think about the scene where Colonel Shaw tears up his paycheck and says, "If you men won't take any pay, then none of us will." Why do you think that the white characters felt superior?
Beth Godbee

While the first amendment does ensure "freedom of speech," it does not mean that you can say whatever you want whenever you want. For instance, you cannot yell "FIRE" in a crowded movie theater because it could cause people to become hysterical and trample others on the way out the theater. Or think about what we now call "hate speech." Should it be legal for people to burn crosses on other people's lawns or yell racial slurs in public? What do you all think? This is not a clear-cut, simple issue. The first amendment is the root of many current debates.
Beth Godbee

DOES ANYONE KNOW OR HAVE A CLUE TO WHERE OSMA BINLADIN IS?
Rebecca Ngo

Ms.Godbee I think that you are right about all this you don't have the right just to yell out fire because you want to. But we do have a right to freedom of speech so you ucan do it but there should be a punishment for public distraction
Rebecca Ngo

Reading a question posted a while back about do you think that slavery is right?
Well Nazim Hudda, I think that slavery is wrong for many reasons no human in this world that can breath, talk, eat, and has human characteristics should be treated this way. People are cruel to one another and donesn't think of how they affect the world or anyone. Slavery back then was just horrible the slaves were treated like crap and no one cared except for a few. I am glad that slavey was is gone because if people are treated like that today it would affect the world even more because of what is going on now with the terroist.
Rebecca Ngo

Responding to another question about the economic differnce between the north and south?
The north had more and was more advanced because they had machinary and the north was more rich because it was owned my the british. The british was more richer and they conrtolled more land in the north and the south. The south was poor and was less advance in technology and the south owned slaves. These last two question are related.
Rebecca Ngo

I think that Osma Bin Ladin is in hide out and trying his best to stay hidden so he won't get caught. I think that when we find him and arrest him the world will become a little safer. Osma is a threat to human society and the Al-kiada people need a neew lesson on how to treat people and that suicide is not the key to everything and anything.
Rebecca Ngo

One other fact about the Purtains were as the following
The purtains escaped England because they were getting persucated for their beliefs so the set sail to America where there was no relgious persecution.
Rebecca Ngo

What does anyone think about people getting pesucated for religious reasons?
Rebecca Ngo

Ms.Godbee, I was talking about the part of the movie when one of the officier beat one of black soliders."Trap" could have gotten punish like a white soldier would have.Thats all i was saying.
Nia G.Oliver

I dont think someone shouldnt get pescuted for religious reasons. i mean just because your a christain you shouldnt be trailed diffently from someone who was bapist.
Nia G. Oliver

The military treats all soldiers poorly, regardless of race. Remember that Trap was caught disserting, and that is punishable by death. The public flogging was, in a sense, a lesser punishment.
Beth Godbee

This is Walter's first message. He is learning to use the Swiki.
Walter Williams

to me i think that you shouldn't be pescuated for your religion cause in my eyes i think that eveyone is equal.walter williams

think about this should people be treated by what they do or what they say? walter williams

why did colonel shaw take up for the black men in the beginning and dyed for them in the end. walter williams

why did colonel shaw take up for the black men in the beginning and dyed for them in the end. walter williams

Christian is the broad categorization. Baptists are Protestants, which are also Christians.
Beth Godbee

i think that colonel shaw was trying to show the men that he was equal man with them. because he was fighting just the same as everyone in the group.
evan wills

i agree with evan. i think colonel shaw was showing the men that he was willing to die for the same as they were willing to die for him. he also showed he felt equal to them by ripping up his pay check. i think he also knew that the best way to get the men so intense was to lead the charge up the hill.
trap seabrook

i would like to add on to nazim's question and answer earlier about whether or not colonel shaw was right in treating his man as tough as he did. i think that it was the best thing to do. they werent any harder on the soldiers because they were black in the training (although they didnt give them the same supplies and pay that they gave the white soldiers), the army is strict on every new soldier. if the black soldiers werent trained as harshly as they were, there is no way they would of ever of been nearly as succesful as they were in combat. they probably would of turn and ran when they heard other people firing if colonel shaw didnt teach them to shoot while under presure. i also believe that he was right in being just as hard on his friend. his friend was the weakest of the regiment and needed to be toughened up.
trap seabrook

i think that trap is right. if you remember in the first battle colonel shaw is shown in the movie, he is very afraid and panics. i think that he trains the men so hard because he know what real battle is like. you wouldn't just be able to stand up and load a musket without having to hear and see the enemy. also does anyone think that you would ever want to be in the military today?
evan wills

i don't think that i serve in the army. i don't want to have to kill for my government evan wills

good point evan, i forgot about the opening scene. he probably did use some of his past experiences to know how to properly train his troops. i think it would be really fun to be a navy seal or army ranger and travel the world and do all that under cover stealthy stuff, but i would rather go and party at college for 4 years then be put through army training.

in response to walter's question i don't think that you should be persecuted just of your religion. that is just getting mad because they don't believe the same thing that you do. in america you can make the choice to be any religion you want but i think we forget that in some places the people cant make that choice.
evan wills

haha...
I believe that colonal shaw really had confidence and believed in his troops. He gained a lot of respect for them and they gained some respect for him too. They not only were on the same regiment but they became friends also and very fond of each other. He had faith in them when no one else would.

i feel that people should not be prosecuted for religion. I think its are right as a people to be able to practice whatever religion we desire.
shanell merriwether

i do feel that we have freedom of speech to a certain extent. The gov. says you can say whatever you want if it politically correct. This blocks us from expressing how we really feel about certain issues. People start to be afraid of expressing their true feelings because everyone else may not agree.
shanell merriwether

i dont really agree with the last comment made by shanell. i think that most people still say whatever they feel. just most people know that if they say something people dont like, other people might take actions against them even if the government didnt. such as if i was a member of a hate group and openly spoke out against whoever my group hates, the people we were talking about might become angry and take action. the government wouldnt stop me though because i have freedom of speech, unless i myself took action and made it more then words. this does cause people to not voice their true feelings because others wont agree, but not so much that the government doesnt agree.

Lakia Allyssa Porter~~~In response to Nazim Hudda's question "What do you think would be the reason for the difference in economies in the North and South?" I agree with the comment made about enviornmental aspects. In some areas where the land is scarce, it's more difficult to be abundant in exporting goods. A problem faced by both the north and south is population. There are so many people who move to both areas for several reasons, rather it's the weather and climate, attractions and entertainment, schooling and jobs or buisnesses, or whatever the case may be. The are constantly clearing out land in several places because there are so many people moving to both locations. Because they're clearing out land to locate houses in those areas, vegetation goes down. Trees affect the ozone layer which doesn't help pollution at all in any matter by all means. Some farmland could be put into use, or made. Then you also have to consider ages. A lot of farms could be old, therefore meaning sooner or later the owners will be elderly and soon retire. With upcoming generations, some are willing to contribute and help keep things up while others aren't. They so-calledly say people down south are more country. Being the fact you can find more land and farmlandsin use, or to be used. Up north, it's a bit more city-like. Less farmlands and things of that sort. Meaning they do less farming fo trade and produce which contributes to buisness which is rare in the "farm-like" field. But when you look at the economical point of view, although we may have the produce, they have the people and attractions. A lot of buisnesses up north. Although, down south, we too have attractions and good schooling. But also some follow in crowds and by name. They want to move to New York because of all the publicity it gets, or Atlanta, or Miami; wherever. But it's a lot to be said on that matter because there is really a lot to consider.

Lakia Allyssa Porter-Well if its alright, I'd like to post some of my questions from my KWL chart to see if someone can help me to get a better understanding. For instance:
~1) How long did these wars necessarily carry on?
~2) What did they do during the waiting period of these times?
~3) How did they know where to be?
~4) Is it fair if the opposing country decides to attack the first-aid crew?
~5) Where exactly, rather how did they find appropriate places to battle?
~6) Where did they sleep, rather, how did they know they weren't invading one another's territory?
~7) Did they necessary contact the opposing countries? ~8) How did they transport, rather what was their source of transportation?
~9) Are there "rules" of war, rather a limit to what they can do; how much power they can maintain?
~10) Is there a set amount of people needed to fight, rather register?

Lakia Allyssa Porter~~~In harmony with Nia Oliver, the underground railroad had a positive influence on blacks during that time period. It really is sad to see how a lot of African Americans today are so materialistic therefore causing disagreements. They argue and start black on black crimes over the simplest things. Who has who's girlfriend, the car, jewelry, music and the all in all most deadly, money. Then it's sad that we're under several stereotypes which involves the selfishness we display. Many get affended but when can I say when sometimes what they are saying is true. Don't get affended, do something about it.

Lakia Allyssa Porter~~~Freedom of speech is very important, yet it goes but so far as to how we obtain it. Some people can say some pretty off the wall things. Some people can say some pretty ignorant and unnecessary things. Some people misinterpret the meaning of the amendment. Now I'll admit, my understandings aren't crystal clear, but I kno I'm moderate about it because I'm the type of person, you ask and really want to know, then I will tell if I feel it's your buisness to know. I don't go about saying what I want and feel because everybody's not going to care, nor are they going to want to know, or need to know. That's how most people are quick to say some talk to much and that's how dislike is developed. The way I see it, freedom of speak is giving your opinion when needed or desired or necessary, then being able to say what you want. From there you can be thought of as what others will think of you as, but if you carry out you thoughts an comments in a mature matter, it can have the biggest effect on you appearance.

Lakia Allyssa Porter~~~Persecution for religious beliefs shouldn't even be a matter in my opinion. If everyone has freedom of speech, can work where they want, live where they want, and things of that nature, then why not practice the religion that you want? There are several different beliefs and practices. No one should be left with an ultimatum regarding religion. Some religions may be too demanding to some people while others may not be significant. If you look back on early religions like with Puritans and Quakers you'll recognize how religion affected dress. Myself personally, I like to express myself through the way I dress. Clothes to me express uniqueness, attitude, personality. But wearing plain clothing alike others expresses, usual, normal, typical. I would be persecuted if I had to study in a religion which required that type of dress code. I'm too passionate about my colors. But back to the topic, if we live in such a "free" world, then why does it matter what religion we practice?

Lakia Allyssa Porter~~~So how exactly do you all feel about war?

Lakia Allyssa Porter~~~What's everyone's thought of equality? Are all ethnicity's equal? Does everyone have equal opportunity? What about stereotypes? Discrimination? Is it recognizable? What are some challenges we ALL face? ....futher within our race?

Lakia Allyssa Porter~~~How many people feel that no matter how free we're claimed to be we aren't? Rather, how many people feel we are completely free, barely free, mainly free, etc...? I wanna get feedback and other ideas.

Lakia Allyssa Porter~~~Well, given the choice to choose between being a Federalist and an Anti-federalists, I wouldn't any of the above. Why was a govenment created anyway. I mean, you all pleez dont get me wrong, but its like, the government it so selfish and there are lots of coniving things that go on. The government doesnt really do much for us as the people because everything is so controlled. It's kind of like we're under rule of man, not God. Man is making rules and laws, man is guilty of creating a lot of insignificant things. If we disagree, we are left no choice but to do it or suffer consequences. If I feel man made a terrible mistake, I'm left to leave it to God to take care of it, but under man-kind's rule, there are so many imperfections and wrongful acts.

to answer lakia's last question about the ruling of government, i disagree and understand why the government was created. the government isn't an evil thing. for the u.s. it is just a group of many elected officials who have power to make rules and laws that we must abide by to work better as a country. i dont think any civilization can go anywhere without some kind of government. that's why pretty much every civiliaztion around the world all had the same ideas even before they met eachother and talked about their idea's that it was necesary to create positions of power, such as tribe leaders, to control the people of their groups. we have just made advancments and instead of now only having one leader, or king, or ruler, we have a group of leaders that we elect. without governments people would just go crazy and not have to worry about killing, stealing, or anything that our government protects with its laws. i myself disagree with many laws put in place by the government. i think that some are unecessary and do not help our country work better, but by living in this country i give up some of my rights to the governments laws. if you think the government is so bad then try living in a third world country with the bands of people running around having to survive by killing their own food and foraging their own water. it wouldnt be very fun.

Here's One More Question On
What If..................???
What if we were still living in a society where there were no rights to women? I mean what if there was no 19th amendment in constitution stating rights for women? How would you feel? What would you do if you were a man/woman?
Nazim Hudda

i think that the white soliders felt like he was a trader because he was kind of on the blacks side and they felt like he was supposed to treat them like dirt just because they were black the white officer made sure that the black soliders had new shoes,socks,and clothes he was a real good man that seen the good in the blaack soliders. aqueelah dean

lakia, i feel as african american people today were still not completley free from slavery, many black people are still discrimi-nated on because of the color of there skin its just the hate that people have aganist use as black people. some people were just raised to hate another because the color of there skin, the way they dress, etc.... ,but its not just hate on black its hate aganist all kind and if you want to make it in the world you cant go around with haterat in our hearts just forgive and forget. Mrs.Godbee i would like to here your point of views on this and Likia yours also.
aqueelah dean

Reminder: Please watch your tone when posting to the Swiki. If you disagree, do so in a polite way.
Beth Godbee

The issues Aqueelah is raising here are very complex. I've planned for us to discuss the history of white supremacy when we study the Civil Rights Movement. Let's do this in class.
Beth Godbee

what do you think about the Black amarican rights in the USA today?
do you thing still we have people that are treated badly because of there color or etc?
Racists are everywhere today. why can't the world just be peace? I feel sorry for people from other countries, and American people talk this and that behind their back, well it happened to me.
Hoa Vu

Mark

I agree with you Aqueelah, we are discriminated against through our race, and so are others. Some people are also stereotyped by their ethnicity. Some people think that all blacks are ignorant and/or ghetto. Some think all whites are like valley and/or skaters/surfers, with the whole "dude" or "oh my god, Becky..." Everyone can either be the same or different. If someone black talked like a stereotypical white girl which is sometimes thought of to be "proper", then other blacks would say she's being, rather acting white. Or if you here a white girl saying "Wassup folk, or shawty", they'd say she's acting black. Another thing I beleive that was brought up was style of dress. Like if someone black wore collared shirts with cuffs and v-necked sweaters, with khaki's or slacks and an over sweater or light jacket tied around their shoulders, they'd say they were dressing as if they were white, rich, or nerdy. It can be thought of as dressing nice or properly. In general, there are a lot of different thoughts, views, and opinions upon behavior, dress, etc.

on the whole rascism issue. I think it's still a very big thing in our culture. I know people who don't like an entire race because they had one bad experience, but i ask how can you generalize and say that one person defines a group. I met a boy one time and automatically he hated me because i was mexican, he had a bad experience with a group of them and from then on he hated everyone who was mexican. i tried and tried to explain that we weren't all like that but he wouldn't listen. the bad part about it was that right before he found out i was mexican(i don't look it) he was really cool and we were getting along fine. It makes me sad that in the year 2002 we still have this much rascism.
Ramona Salazar

Yes, I do think that some people often get mistreated based on their race. I'm part Philipeno, and when I was in the 3rd grade, someone over heard me say that I was philipeno and he suddenly scooched their desk away from me and called me a gouk. I asked why he said that and he said,"Because one of you killed my day 2 years ago!".
Becca J.Raiz

Becca..sorry to heard that..don't worry about them!
Hoa Vu

Lakia Allyssa Porter Becca that is very sad to hear and the thing that makes it even sadder is that fact that, you say that happened when you were in the 3rd grade. Some would try to give benefit of the doubt because of the fact in third grade you all were young and didn't know any better, but people who are grown and supposedly mature still do that today. Some people don't even teach their kids any better, they want their children to discriminate and be prejudice and encourage that. It is bad how some individuals of one race can so determine or affect the thoughts, feelings and/or ideas of one persons views upon the whole race, rather just that individual. I might know someone Chinese who is just so obnoxious, rather I have, but I don't dislike anyone else whom I don't kmow that is of that ethnicity. It's just one person, regardless of color or whatever and that is a poor excuse to thought and behavior.

I also agree with Lakia. Even though slavery ended many years ago whites and blacks have yet to completely come together. Whites still call black people names and don't give blacks certain types of job because of their skin color. Tell me something not just straight towards you but just in general, have you seen a black president better yet have you seen a women president? Women are stiil discriminated against just the same as most blacks are. There are not many women in high positoins today. You can be discrimninated against by gender or by race.

Back in that day whites were not afraid to do what ever thay wanted to people of AFRICAN AMERICAN decent. They would beat them, rape them, even lynch them. But now days I would really say that they are scared.They see most of the black on black crime and they see how badly we treat each other that they don't want to even bother. If anyone ever tried to bring slavery back into play I do'nt think they would stand a chance. Blacks have alot of power now. They know all the do's and don'ts so nobody would be able to run over them or tell them that they are wrong.
Jessyca Eberhardt

I wrote every thing starting after "I also agree with Lakia"
So Mrs. Godbee DON'T GET IT TWISTED
well i agree with you all and you all have very good points because in this day and age we all have to work together to make it not just blacks work with blacks and whites with whites we have to be one .
and until america understands that we will continue to have problems no matter what color you are how you look and what you have and i would like to have everyones out look on this.

I also think that racism is the worst flaw of our society, but remember that its not just with blacks but others too. I have a friend in our school(I do not want to specify names) and he is pretty good at his math but he did not get nominated for GHP(Georgia Honors Program) because he was from Pakistan, while others in his class with lesser grades than him were nominated. I think that we should together make some effort in order to get rid of or atleast try to reduce racism. According to me, teachers can help a lot in this. They can divide people in groups containing all races and make sure that they all interact with each other and interacting is the best way to understand each other. (I apologise if i have hurt someones feelings)

I personally have said many racist comments to different people whether joking or serious, and I personally would like to sincerely appologize from the bottom of my heart. As I child my best friend was white and I was constantly looked down on for something I was too young to understand. I was purposesly taken out of the private school system and placed into the public school system because the public school system was predominantly black with few hispanic and some arab, but no white. As I grew older I developed a form of hate for white people for no reason whatsoever. Now that I am actually of age to understand the effect of racism and prejudice I have an open mind to the views of everyone as well as their feelings. It felt strange when I moved here because it's been about five years since I've went to school amongst white people and in such great numbers. To everyone don't let the steriotypical mind frame of others cause you to loose a friend like I did . thank you.

We are talking about The New Deal and Coming out of Depression right now, so i would like to say something about it. I think that FDR (Franklin D Roosevelt) did a great job with the New Deal and the Second Deal because it helped many to get on their feet back, thoose who couldn't, did it after the World War II. The new deal was a good idea to bring back the economy of USA but it failed. I think one thing the government could do was that it could have financed companies and businesses so that they could hire people , this way people could get jobs and could spend money which they get, this will enable the businessess to run more successfully and pay ff the government debts. Here is an outline of what could have done (Sorry!, i an not that good at drawing)

Who is Joseph Stalin?
Joseph Stalin – He was born in Gori, Georgia on 21st December 1879. His real name was Djugashvili, but he later changed it to Stalin, which meant "man of steel". He came from Georgia in southern Russia and started to train to be a priest, but joined the Bolshevik party in 1903. By 1917, he had become the editor of Pravda, the Bolshevik newspaper in the Bolshevik seizure of power. When the job of party secretary came up in 1922, Stalin took it on after all the other leading Bolsheviks had turned it down. They didn't think Stalin would be a serious person for this job but he was determined that when Lenin died he would become the new leader of Russia.

Winston Churchill - Churchill was elected to Parliament as a Conservative in 1900, but he subsequently switched to the Liberal party and was appointed undersecretary for the colonies in the cabinet of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman. Churchill was not a financial innovator; he basically followed conventional advice from his colleagues. Nevertheless, Churchill's decision to return the country to the prewar gold standard increased unemployment and was a cause of the general strike of 1926.

Who is Douglass MacArthur?
Douglass MacArthur - The son of a black slave, Harriet Bailey, and an unknown white father, he took the name of Douglass (from Scott's hero in The Lady of the Lake ) after his second, and successful, attempt to escape from slavery in 1838. He had learned to read and write while in the service of a kind mistress in Baltimore, published his Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass in 1845. Unlike William L. Garrison , he favored the use of political methods and thus became a follower of James G. Birney . In the Civil War he helped organize two regiments of Massachusetts African Americans and urged other blacks to join the Union ranks. He was secretary of the Santo Domingo Commission (1871), marshal of the District of Columbia (1877-81), recorder of deeds for the same district (1881-86), and minister to Haiti (1889-91).

On his return from the war he married (1919) Elizabeth (Bess) Virginia Wallace; they had one daughter, Mary Margaret. In the Senate he was a firm supporter of the New Deal policies of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but the administration was cool toward Truman because of his connection with Pendergast. By 1940 the Pendergast machine had been broken, and Truman had a hard fight for reelection. In his second term he achieved national prominence as chairman of a Senate committee to investigate government expenditures in World War II. He was nominated for Vice President in 1944 and was elected to office along with President Roosevelt.

We are talking about the World Ear II in our classes and I am very glad that miqdad karimi raised the topic of the Atomic Bombing at Hiroshima, Nagasaki. The real or the main Question is that whether or not to bomb the japaneese. I think that it was very cruel of the US government to bomb the japaneese without giving a specific warning, the onlyt thing that the govt informed the japaneese that they will face "prompt and utter destruction". The japaneese of course denied to give up. The US govt then bombed the japaneese. The Outcome???
Well, 200,000 people died as a result of injuries and radiation poisioning. This did not end here but the the land of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is barren now, One cannot grow food, growing food is far, one cant even live there. The people who were left, and were affected by the radiation caused by the bomb are suffering till now thats 57 years after the bombing. The babies who were born to them were already affected by the radiationa nd it still continues. Imagine you having a baby who is born with radioactive activity in itself, how hard it would have been for them to bear all the pain. I have read a poem based on this it was named something like A Doctors journal on 19th July 1945, i am not sure of the name but it talked about a doctor who was on the read while US droped the bomb. The writer says that the doctors and all the others who were present in the place had their skins ripped off (The skin antually melted due to the high temperature). I cant imagine the scene. i think that the govt should have warned Japan more specifically so that there would have been no need for a bombing. I dont know what the Third world war(If any) will be fought with but if it is fought, then the fourth will be fought with STONES.
Nazim Hudda
Good point Nazim HuddaBut why do you think US should have gave a warning to Japanese. What if they have had warned Japanese would it made the tragedy any batter? I think the answer would be no because it doesn’t make sense even if US have had warned Japan 100 times it won’t do any good because the bomb would have still killed the same way that it did without warning.

Attacking the Japan was an attack which it was based on racial massacre just like when they brought blacks from Africa as slaves it was an attack on human race but look at today’s America is it deferent or not they were the first people in this world how have used atomic bomb on humans and now they try to prevent other countries to have it
So US can enslave them in way that when ever if they didn’t do some thing that US didn’t like it would show those bombs.
Still it don’t work 2 days ago North Curia declared that they have nuclear bombs and massive distracting bombs which will empower that country.
The point that I am trying to say it is if having bomb is wrong when North
Curia has it , it is also wrong for Russia, china, Europe US and any other powerful country.
At the end all I want to say is
This world is belong to no communism capitalism socialism or etc to bring war and attack the human race and kill. The world is for human not for does hungry wolfs after kill (power)
No body should have any kind of bomb
This world is every ones world now only US’s Or Russia’s or etc
Peace be upon every one of you
Good luck
Miqdad karimi

Do you think it would have heal the pain of last year Sep 11 if Benladen would have gave warning before the attack or many other attacks against the human race
sorry i forgot to sign my name

ZUBAIR AFGHAN NEJRABI
i am not agree with some of you,becouse when the U.S was undrestand
that japanese are going to attacked to the U.S. thats not citizen japanes are foult to attemepp them.
zubair nejrabi
zubair nejrabi
i also agree with hudda a bout women's right
and how they were killed by some stupped people.
zubair nejrabi
i am disagree with hudda becouse he said that
america does not gived any specific warning to japan about droping bomb
hiroshima and some other states. and i have a reason that i can prove it that amerca was not wrong a bout atomic bomb,and the reason is why japan does not gived any specific when they were attacked to pearl harbor? there was no xicting to attacked pearl harbor.
zubair nejrabi
hey i want to see that picture that you said that i am no
able to sent them please sent it to me and here is my email address
zubair2006nejrab@aol.com
hey nazim my point is you
ok sent me that pictuer
i have already posted it on the Swilki, look at my previous postings, Zubar and Miqdad.
Nazim Hudda

Zubair, you made a good point there about the Pearl Harbor but compare the differences in the damages caused by both of them, On one hand Pearl Harbor caused deaths but it caused a limited destruction and on the other hand the Atomic Bombing, as i said earlier, caused unlimited destruction, People who are born even now, are born with radioactive defects in them, where as the effect of Pearl Harbor ended soon. I know that once a man dies, there can be nothing more destructive than the death and no one can compensate for that, but still the effect was on large scale. The scientises in US knew the effect would be so much, they could have warned the Japaneese and told them about the consequences, In this case, the japaneese could have thought upon and could have declared peace. One more thing which could have reduced the dectruction was that The United States could have asked Japan to surrender after the first Bombing, the Japaneese were certain by that time that US can do whatever it can and could destroy Japan wholely if it wanted to but they didnt. Even if japan would not surrender, US would have had a better reason to bomb them. What i mean to say really is that why dont we try to prevent war as much as possible, cause every one in this world knows that there is nothing one can gain with Wars. Science has given us the power of nuclear energy, so why dont we use it for good and why should we waste it on bombs which afterwards, kills man. So its like making plans to kill yourself or other creations of God by using things we could for making our lives better. We can use the same energy for much better cause. There are many places in the developing third world countries where there is no electricity, and nuclear energy is the answer to such problems but the third world countries cant afford it. US can help these countries develop more rapidly. I know that it would cost much but what ever you are doing, you are doing it for mankind and who knows that maybe tomorrow US will be in such a position and it might need help of other countries its havin war with? I am rally sorry if i hurt anyone's feelings and hope that he/she will forgive me for that.
Nazim Hudda

I don’t know from where to start. I happy to see people are posting their ideas .I get sad and feel sorry for them when they talk with out any logic.
I really found this issue logic less when people are talking it was not America and it was all Japanese who did this and that. For us the mankind life should matter not that childish arguments that one says that America was not wrong and the other says that Japan was not wrong this subject is seemed really childish to me. We should care about human’s race not any country America or Japan or any other country.
Nazim I really liked your posting they are not some thing that you just wrote 2 lines to get point in your history class you are making really good and valet point that make hole a lot sense I am agree with you when you made a point that how much the atomic bomb and pear harbor caused unlimited destruction for both side. I am glad that you are thinking about the hole human race and there life not counties which I thing it is a kind of childish if we only think about how America was right and Japan was wrong had attempt an attack
What do you think about it does it seem childish to you or not.
This is our world and we should not sport any country or power to harm the human race. And I also agree by using the nuclear energy for a good cause to help the human race.
At LAST NAZIM I HAVE A SOME THING TO ASK YOU AND THAT IS, WHEN YOU SAY THAT if Japan would not surrender, US would have had a better reason to bomb them
ARE YOU SAYING THAT NOW the USA has a good reason for have had bombed the Japan but if the had warned after the first bomb would made this reason better?
.Nazim good job keep posting. It is always good to have some kind of controversy so it will keep us thinking about these kind of issues and hopefully it will make us to think about making this world a better place
Peace be upon you al
Thank youl

NAZIM thans for giving me that idea a bout pearl harbor
Thanks a lot you guys, it's really good information about Pearl Harbor oh and also good luck on the test tomorrow. Study harder!!
Hoa Vu

hoa vu you are bad girl

you know that
LoL, hush zubair..I know you was the one who posted it.
Hoa Vu

Miqdad, i meant to say that if USA had warned Japan earlier stating clearly the consequences, then maybe the world would have not seen the bombing at hiroshima because Japan could have surrendered before the bombing itself. If, even after hearing the consequences, Japan would have not surrendered, then USA had no choice but to bomb. In this case, usa could have truly and satisfactorily justified the bombing. Did you all get me?, If not please write back and i will try my best to explain it to you all. Miqdad, hope this clears your doubt.
Nazim Hudda

Nazim, thanks for posting. i think that i got you but the point that i am trying to make is that there is not good or bad or any reason for bombing Japan. and this is how i am thinking about it
1 the people who wear an army’s Uniform and have chosen with there free well to wear it are not Innocent. how many people in Hiroshima were wearing Japan’s army uniform who got killed? i think not that many . on the other hand if we look at the pearl harbor how many people got killed and did they had the army’s uniform on or not. any one who got killed in the uniform is not Innocent because when you put that uniform on you declare that you are ready to kill and you are ready to fight and die.
US bombing was an attack against a race and human-race.
and don’t for get that when ever that i say that US bombing was an attack against human race i don’t mean to admire and i don’t think that attacking that that i could find any reason for bombing the pear harbor. and meanwhile we should always have this in our mind that Hiroshima was a city with allot of civilian and pear harbor was an American navel bass in Hawaii which i think it shouldn’t be there in the first place.

I didn't start it..he did
Hoa Vu

About the the Pearl Harbor the United States had no right bombing Japan. i totally understand about them fighting and all but the u.s bombed 2 cities. that's alot of people to kill.
Nia Oliver

why do you think the United States had no right bombing Japan, Nia? Oh and are you in my French class? 1st period? Just curious.
Hoa Vu

Hey Hoa i'm not in your french class but i'm in your 2nd period class,but back to the topic because i would say the same thing as Nia
said because she seemed to be more knowledgeable on this topic as well
I do. What trying to say is that I think the United States had no right bombing japan what so ever and that's my word and i will stick with it no matter what.
Aden Hashi

What do guys actually know about the Civil Rights? In your opion I would say....
I think civil rights is the rights to full legal, social, and economic equality extended to blacks. Civil rights have a legal as well as a philosophical basis. In the United States civil rights are usually thought of in terms of the specific rights guaranteed in the Constitution. I mean civil rights has a lot of meaning of it so I guess I might be wrong..
Hoa Vu

Miqdad, if Bin laden would have given us warning, then we could have negotiated with him for what he wanted, we could even threaten him of attacks if he would bomb and if all this wouldnt work, we could atleast take necessary steps and increase the security in flghts and all means of transport, if he planned to attack by his own plane, we could destroy it as soon as it enters the US territory. There is no way one can decrease the pain of a death but there are many ways by which we can prevent or eliminate the choice of killing. I just dont understand why people take the revenge of death as a death, this leads to more and more killing, Why all this? God has given us this beautiful world to,live it up but we, we all try to find more and more ways to destroy it, What is the use of all this??? We are planning our own death by forming new and new enemies. The problem is the level, US is on the top and some other countries are under us(in level) and they try continously to reach the top. Why should we keep this system when its a threat to the worlds peace? Why cant the whole world live as a country lives? There are states in a country but we do not see them fighting within themselves for status? Why cant we learn a lesson from this? It is NOT Impossible for the whole world to live in a harmony. It is possible, the world can also live as a nation lives, with unity, with brotherhood and above all with PEACE.
Nazim Hudda

Nazim i gree with you i will post my ideas as soon as i can
thanx for posting
Hoa yes i am in your 1st period french class. the united states killed 2 cities worth of people. don't u think thats alot of people. i know for a fact that the united states killed way more people than they did us. i think the united states are big bullies. they knew that onced they killed all those people that japan was going to give up that was a given.
Nia G.Oliver

what do u guys think of "Farewell to Manazar"?
Nia G. Oliver

i think its a pretty good story. it gives me the inside story about what really went on in the camps.
Nia G. Oliver

What do u guys think drove the DAD into drinking?
Nia G. Oliver

What do u guys think drove the DAD into drinking?
Nia G. Oliver

Can you agree that the interment camps can be compared to slavery?
Nia G. Oliver

Has anyone actually finished the book?
Ramona Salazar

I would't compare the internment camps to slavery they were actually a lot harsher than that. in slavery you are made to work, you're usually beaten, you're not fed enough, you have to live in shacks. Now up till the shacks part the internment camps sounded nothing like slavery, I'm not saying it was okay to do what we did. I'm just not going to agree that the internment camps were anything like slavery.
Ramona Salazar

also i think what drove the dad to drink was the humiliation of being thought to be the enemy. I mean how would you feel if you knew that just by the way you looked you were going to be called the enemy. Personally it would hurt my pride if i had lived in a country most of my life and suddenly just because of the way i look i'm their new enemy. He also probably drank because he didn''t want to really "be there"the united states had locked away him, his entrire family, and most of his friends, they had taken his boats and licsences, and now they put him in a camp where the toilets didn't even have partitions. I'd drink to. if only to escape from it all.
Ramona Salazar

what did you guy think about the weird concotions of food the americans wanted to feed the japanese? Like the rice and apricots mixed together?
Ramona Salazar

i believe that u can compare the both. both were taking lives point blank. even though the japanese weren't BEATEN doesn't make them slaves for or of the united states? come on now. they were held against their will for no reason at all.oh my bad for the reason that they were scared that the japanese would turn against them
Nia G. Oliver

I think that the food was either a way to torture the japaneese or they were in short of funds. More chances are that they wanted to torture them cause it is hardly possible to have less funds in US. I have never tasted rice and apricot together but can say that they must be horrible. And First of all, i dont belive in interning people just based on race, that totally is racial discrimination. We fought many other countries in the war but never interned them, why is that? The japaneese dealt with a lot of discrimination during the period, Many movies also reflect on this eg. Tucker-the movie also has scenes in which they showed the fact that japaneese were discriminated in this world. Actually i would like to know who started the concept of higher race or lower race and what did he/she achieve i this? If any of u guys can help.
We are a creation of GOD and he has created us equally. He is our father and when he doesnt discriminate us, who are we to build walls among ourselves??? According to what i know, i think that US is the only country in which most people have faced discrimination like blacks, asians etc.
Nazim Hudda

you're right that is a horrible reason. But i think they're are both horrible in their own right. they don't need to be compared to eachother. you know?
Ramona Salazar

we're are not the only country to have discrimination. but in other countries the discrimination is based on sex, religion, class, etc. in other countries women are treated horribly that is not to say they are treated any better here but at least here they can't have sexual organs forcefully cut off. In some countries you only get one child and because the man is so much "better" if a woman has a gurl they are ussually killed. we have built many walls to say who is better and who is not, who is worthy and who is not. None of these walls are even remotly okay to have but yet they're still there. people try to change them and nothing becomes of it. what are we to do?
Ramona Salazar

Do any one here know who started discrimination?
Nazim Hudda

here's are a couple little known facts about the U.S:
here a women makes .70 cents to every dollar and something like 700,000 women are raped every year. and that's just in the U.S we need to start taking care of both our sexes. I'm not saying women are better than men but they should at least be equal.those are just my thoughts. give me your feedback
Ramona Salazar

no one started discrimination it just sort of came about. i mean there have been hate groups throughout the years and they started discrimination but it's always been around. hope that answers your question.
Ramona Salazar

i don't think the rice thing was torture. the japanese eat rice to this day. so do u think thaat they are torturing themselves by eating it today?
Nia G. Oliver

i totally agree with Ramona. discrimination isn't started by anyone in particular it just starts. there is discrimination before, now, and in our future. it is always going to be here.
Nia G. Oliver

Farewell to Manzanar is a good book, it's really interesting about Wakasuki's life..i am mainly interesting about Asian people so it is not a boring book to me, how about you all?
Hoa Vu

i liked the book too. and on the rice thing, the rice itself wasn't torture it's the sweet topping the americans added that the japanese didn't like. i don't think it was meant as torture, i think it just showed how differant our cultures are.
Ramona Salazar

I've always been interested in world war two. It shows so much hate. but in this book you see an entirely differant view point than you would normally read about. I love it. This is actually the second or thrid time i've read this book. does anyone know of any other books like this?
Ramona Salazar

i don't know if this has already been asked or not but what was everyone's opinion on the dropping of the atomic bomb?
Ramona Salazar

Ramona jan, it is good point that you brought up but they would not eat any thing like that if they where at there home every thing that they face in that comp is forced on them caouse they don't wanted to be there in the first place.it is also true that it shows how diffrent our culture is from each other cultures.

sorry about me posting this all late and stuff ...
Well guys while some of us we're enjoying our thanksgiving holiday dinning as
others were hitting the departments stores and malls for buying holiday sales
gifts as prices were going down like titanic trying to save up some cash. There
was some attack's on Israeli interests and also there was a attack that took place in Kenya. According to the Kenya's Police Department there was no signs of al-Qaida
connection in thursday's on Isreali Interests . Israel a country in middle east that splits peace of land with Palestian voved revange for thursday's attack in kenya as all
reporters around the globe said that. One day after that Thanksgiving Holiday the United States warned its citizens they could be the target of terrorist actions in East Africa after two attacks on Israelis in Kenya that killed 16 people. The State Department said it had received information, the credibility of which had not yet been confirmed, that similar attacks might also occur in the nation of Djibouti, which borders Somalia and Ethiopia. Somali being the country i was born and raised all my life as a kid and
also lived. See something tribble is happen in kenya just like it happen in here in
U.S. last September the 11th and all i'm saying is that what this world needs is
peace making and I know is hard but that's the only solution.

oooppssss! how could i delete one of them?thanx guys
hey go to the edit part and scroll down until you find your and delete the extra
i didn't underline my name a couple times and had to do the same thing.
Ramona Salazar

and on your peace idea, it would be great if we could have world peace, we'd have better schools, hospitals, libraries, etc. because all the money that get's spent on military would go to other things, but then what would happen to all the people who've dedicated their lives to the military. I mean i'm all for peace but think about the lives it would affect. I know people who's parents work in the military and that's all they've done all their lives they have no other skills, what about them?
Ramona Salazar

Hey Guy's life was rough for the japanesse families in the camps. I mean like miqdad said everything they did was something they were forced too, not much likely something they wanted . Is truly a fact that first able they didn't want to stay the place, because the didn't
had the freedom they wanted and do the things they liked it. I myself couldn't imagine being in a camp like they were in . Not getting the freedom and not doing the things you use to do and not breaating in a fresh air like you use too. I mean I would life sucked for them in the camp.
Aden Hashi

it's like ISS times a thousand
Ramona Salazar

but seriously it must have been horrible being locked away where you can't leave and the people who are forcing you there are your neighbors. it'd be horrible. i couldn't even imagine something so tragic.
Ramona Salazar

i've done more than 12 swiki's but i'm gonna keep on posting because i like hearing everyone's ideas.we really need more people contributing to this though
Ramona Salazar

Nazim, I am totally agree with you the only thing that I think about it is this warning issue if Binladen did worn US or not would not mattered and in other hand if we thin realistically no one would prefers to worn the enemy that I am going to attack on you and …
US or any other country should not expect any warning when they themselves does not even care about civilians.
And in the other part that you said that ”I just don’t understand why people take the revenge of death as a death, this leads to more and more killing, Why all this?”

There is some thing that I strongly believe in is “ you can’t wash a bloody hand with blood”
In our today’s world we nee water to wash off the blood and hatred from the humans village and we have to and must work for peace and harmony in this world
Miqdad Karimi

ya i don't think it will be easy to get peace it will take a long time especially if our president would rather have war.
Ramona Salazar

Remona jan, what do you think about Japanese treating their wife in the camp don’t you think that they suffer and they go through the pain more than the men in camp. There is no women that turn alcoholic or violent toward any one. Why do you think that women in the camp are supporting every one in family. Is it in every women’s nature or it is just Japanese’s women.
miqdad Karimi

yes Miqdad I stroongly agree with your thought that "you can't wash a bloody hand with blood" no matter what the outcome is. I mean in our today's world things are not what they used too be . I mean the crime rate is increasing and look at all these bombing and fighting,killing innocent people in planes and buildings. I mean for God sakes is time
we start make peace and look at everybody in this world as a brother or a sister and forget about peoples race, because really color doesn't matter I would say. Is only about how you look at one another. Today's world is fulled with hate and creates violence...
Aden Hashi

True Aden I agree with you about "color doesn't matter" I mean why would people care about your skin's color? I just hate how some people look at you because you are asian, african, and bleh, and won't be your friend because of where you are from, I thought that was wrong. The world won't be peaceful unless you learn how to make it look peaceful.
Hoa Vu

Hey let tell you in away it might be that is something that is in every womens nature and in the other hand it might be something that you guys think that is just in Japanese's womens, but you might disagree with me , because I'll say is something that is in only some women's nature. I mean if you were a women or not wouldn't you support your family even though one if your family memeber is a alcoholic or violent toward any one, then rather then you supporting the cowards or your enemies. I mean the one that put you in a camp
or something. share you thoughts on this guys
Aden Hashi

True Hoa I agree what your saying too and where your coming from to
that in order to make this world a peacefully world we must learn how to make it look peafeully. I mean imagine what the world would be like
if it was peacefully as it can get and get to go work or fly anywhere you want without worrying about if your safe flying..
Aden Hashi

Do you really think that it won't be easy to get peace in this world because the president don't want to have peace.
i think that most of the people in this country or in another word majority of the population is in fever of war and kill if not why there is no reaction against war if there is any reaction does are from the people that knows that they are against the war and they act on it; the percentage of this kind of people are really low in this world and in this country. ( every thing that I wrote is based on my way of thinking there is a huge chance of me being wrong about these kind of clams that I have done in above. This is how I think about these kind of issues)
Miqdad Karimi

Hate it self is violence. Being against some thing is not violence because every one don’t thing the same and every one should have rights to be against some thing that they don’t like this how this world is. Which this give us the right to be against the war, kill and be in fever of peace.
Miqdad Karimi

I don’t know how can I delete or change in the page after posting

last night every one was posting their ideas and i liked it i hope you all keep up with posting it is nice ot have a kind of Debit or their ideas which makes this side one of my favorite internet side
miqdad Karimi

Yeah same here, miqdad, I enjoy come here often to read those replies, they're worth to read and plus I learned something about the topics.
Hoa Vu

Miqdad u made a very valid point about Hate it self is violence. it is so true. we witness it everyday.
Nia G. Oliver

Right now in class we're talking about the Fair Deal. Can you guys give ur point of view on it.
Nia G.Oliver

It would be easy to have peace in the world on if the iraqies would stop trying to be over dominate and trying to over do the americans
Rebecca Ngo

I personally think that the president wants peace in the USA because we have had to much going on especiallysince 9/11
~Rebecca Ngo~
does anyone think that we would put any other race into the camps that the japanese were put into?
Rebecca Ngo
Hate is such a strong would but sometimes you hate and get confused with dislike and hate
Rebecca Ngo

does anyone think that osmam bin ladin changed his idea and do you think that we will ever find him?
Rebecca Ngo

what is everyones ideas on racial discrimination?
Rebecca Ngo

Do you all remember the work we did on human rights? Your talk about foreign policy and discrimination connects with ideas of what each person should be entitled to and how we should treat all people. Think about your daily interactions at Druid Hills. Remember the "Mix It Up" day. Did many of you participate? How can we show more caring and respect for people in our everyday lives?
joathan walwyn

Lakia Allyssa Porter We can be more caring and show more respect to people in our everyday lives by showing manners and tryning to be helpful to one another. Like if you see somebody who needs a pencil or some paper, don't let your reasoning for not doing so be because of their race or ethnicity. If you have a new student in your classroom rather than ignoring that person or not speaking to that person because their different, open up and extend yourself to that person so they'll be more comfortable in a new place among new people and new faces.
Lakia Allyssa Porter~I honestly don't know what the deal is about Bin Ladin. He could be "laying low" until the time when everybody is least expecting him to make his move, could be 10 years from now for all we know. He might feel that he's had his fun and no longer wants to "play". Who knows?!
What do you think that would have happened if US would have not been able to defeat Japan in the world war II, i mean what if the Japaneese would have defeated US? More in detail, What if Japaneese would have found the bomb and would have used it against us? I think US would have doomed and would not be a world power now. Now what do you think, was it a good idea to make the bomb and use it on Japan, It could have been used against us only if they would have found it before us.
Nazim Hudda
Lakia Allyssa Porter
I have a comment to say in response to, who I beleive was Miqdad, (sorry if I mispelled your name) about his thoughts among the world and peace. I agree with you because this world is so corrupt and nowadays a lot of people just want to kill. There is so much hate among many and confusion within their minds. A lot of people forget the purpose of mankinds' existance to the Earth. Some people get angry over the smallest things and are ready to take the life of another. Just so many things that go on that shouldn't. And it seems like as much as we try to prevent these things from happening, it only gets worse.
Lakia Allyssa Porter
One more thing, Iraq now secretly has many chemical, biological and nuclear weapons which are a great threat to the US. President Bush has announced that if Iraq would not specify correctly the number of weapons it has or allow UN to investigate there, It will attack Iraq on the basis of Self Defense. The UN is trying to make agreements with Iraq's Dictator Saddam Hussein.
Attacking another country without first being attacked is against the laws of UN and US is trying to get permission from UN to attack Iraq on the basis of Self Defense, President says that US cant wait until they attack us. What do you all think about this? Should US get the permission to attack any nation on the basis of self defense?
I think that US should NOT get the permission to do so because it will be like a 'Blank Cheque' for the US which will alow it to attack any country which it doesnt like. This could also drag us into anther world war, what do you think should be done at this point? Shold US be given the permission or Not???

I also have a comment about hate being self-violent. I also am in harmony with that as well with my last comment. Some people can have so much animosity towards another, yet not say a single word to them. Does this necessarily mean that things are patched together and over? NOPE! People hold grudges and grudges and yield to hate. I could still possibly be mad at an ex-friend for losing an irreplacible ring given to me by my deceased grandmother and from then to now never spoken to her and just the sight of her makes me sick, therefore I hate her. It's pointless. Why get upset over some material. Just like people still do today. Words hurt as well though. Like verbal bullying, just because one person dislikes and possibly hates another. It's so irrelevant.
Lakia Allyssa Porter
I agree with you Lakia..
Hoa Vu
Good point lakia, before you getting to stage to hate people go talk to them and see if thing work out if not still we should not hate her because every one has the right what ever and when ever they want to do to do it us they wish if they chose not to be friend to you it is their rights we shouldn't be made about it and start hate
hater is harming himself or herself us much is their person been hated even more than that.
and talking people and seeking for apology is always the best human step to take in every thing that been went wrong or some one said it is offensive

Nadim, us have already past a resolution that says that Iraq don’t agree with disarmament of itself than it is for sure that Iraq will attack us and Us to prevent the death of his citizens must go to war.
This is the world of Cain the UN it self is a undemocratic figure it is named only United Nation if we give a careful look at structure of decision making power in UN it shows it only United of powers of the world which is ( US, CHINA, RUSSIA , FRENCE, UK)
In UN no matter if all the rest of the world agree on any kind of issue in world to pass a resolution I does not matter because any of this big five want to veto it they can veto it with out any logical explanation by the way we should keep in mind that it was UN who prevented the start of a hot and bloody war during the cold war in some point even though that us and Russia fought against each other in Afghanistan during the cold war indirectly. What I mean by fighting a hot war indirectly is US gave many to hungry warlords of Afghanistan and religious people in this country to motivate the Afghan people to fight against the Russia and these hungry and religious people who got their financial support from US they start a bloody war and called it Jehad which been misinterpreted to the world with the political purpose us Holy WAR.
Us I have researched and found out the exact meaning of Jehad form my self is to work toward a better world and serve the human race. Us Mohamed the person who is the first teacher of Jehad thought the nomadic Arabs that the beigest Jehad is the Jehad to behave in a best manner and work for a better cause to help human race form that I got the real meaning of Jehad Work and serve the human race in any way possible and bee a good person with morals.
On the other hand US money that the Poor and Rich American worked hard to earn that money and they paid taxes had bee use in wrong cause which still causes the American citizens problem. To be much clear if US had fallowed a good foreign policy today the head of terrorist organization (alqaida) Osama Ben laden wouldn’t had this world wide power to attack incessant civilian. Amarica help Osama benladen to go to Afghanistan and fight against the Soviet union. On the top of that Afghans lost all their home and the most important a generation of young afghan which any of them could be a person to help and contribute to bringing the world peace in earth instate this generation is the people who can’t live with out fight and kill. 97% of this generation is able to fight but unable to read or write a basic step in an American life. You might night not understand that how much education help to have a developed country and might not know that civil right movement in US was succeeded just because the percentage of American who were educated was high enough to accept the fact of with and black has the same rights and we should be equal. I have a lot to say about this issue I better cut it off here I want to know what do you and every body else know or think about this , so I can find out for my self if I true or wrong. Thanks a lot your contributions are appreciate able to me and I have learn a lot from you guys thanks and have a good time

"Global Oppressors Can't Deliver Justice
Revolutionary Worker #1122, October 14, 2001, posted at rwor.org

The U.S. president is talking about justice. And the U.S. armed forces are waging war.

Where is justice? What does it look like? Does it look like the bombs falling on Afghanistan?

The U.S. power structure is talking about justice. And their cruise missiles and fighter bombers are raining death on the impoverished people of Afghanistan. Horror from the sky.

The same empire that has been responsible for a global economy where thousands of children die every day of hunger and disease; for a global network of regimes who can only perpetuate this poverty and inequality; for dropping bombs on people in Hiroshima, Vietnam, Panama, Iraq, Serbia; for plotting murderous coups from Chile to Iran; for backing brutal regimes where women cannot even show their faces and people get their hands cut off for stealing bread–now the same empire responsible for all of this misery demands that people unite with them in war.

This power structure–which has lied to the people about every war they have waged, which has backed the most despicable death squads, from the Christian fascists of Rios Mott in Guatemala to the Islamic fundamentalists of the Taliban–now expects the people to give them a free hand to define who is "the enemy" and what it will take to "take them out."

We have seen the outlines of this kind of justice: in the hunched bodies of veiled women begging on the streets of Afghanistan; in Saudi Arabia, whose corrupt kings rule a system where women are the property of men and foreign workers are treated like slaves; in Pakistan, where U.S.-backed generals alternate between backing drug lords and waging drug wars; in the hospitals of Iraq, where more that half a million children have died because the U.S. has deliberately destroyed Iraq's water system with bombs and sanctions; in the bull-dozed homes of Palestinians in the West Bank.

While the bombs rain down on Afghanistan, the U.S. imperialists claim that this war is not aimed at the Afghani people. The U.S. generals claim that their bombers are "clearing the way" for a humanitarian mission to free the peoples of Afghanistan from the Taliban. Do they imagine that the masses of people in Afghanistan will thank them as they scramble for food rations amidst the shattered bones of their children, fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers?

No. No. No.

Every U.S. military intervention only leads to death and destruction for the people. In the 1980s there was a just struggle in Afghanistan against a Soviet invasion. But the U.S. intervened, backing forces like Osama bin Laden and the oppressive mujahedeen. More than a million people in Afghanistan died in that war, the country was devastated by thugs and warlords, and with the support of the rotten regime in Pakistan and millions of dollars in funding from Washington, the brutal Taliban rose to power.

And anyone who thinks that the armed forces of the U.S. ruling class can play a positive role in defending "secular democracy" should consider that president of the U.S. ruling class regularly consults with Christian fascists and fundamentalists like Ralph Reed and claims to be on a mission from god.

No. There is no justice in the house of the U.S. ruling class. We need to be crystal clear on the nature of these oppressors who have launched a new war: these arrogant lying creatures do not rule in the interests of the people of this country or the world. Their nature can be seen in the kind of military actions they take–their long-standing military mottos like "death from above" and their covert "special ops"–like the Green Berets in Vietnam whose actions were accompanied by napalm and carpet bombing.

Error: this should not happenError: this should not happen

Many conscious people see this and see that this planet does not need another unjust war. But some have suggested that instead of war, there should be legal justice–that the perpetrators of September 11 should be tracked down and brought to trial.

Who are the perpetrators? As the Committee of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement has said: "In the murky waters of terrorism and the intelligence services, where intrigue and double-dealing are the currency, it may never be possible to know exactly who organized the attack, or their motives. But two things are clear: first, the victims in New York join the millions of direct and indirect victims of the policies and actions of the U.S. ruling class. Second, even greater crimes are in preparation."

And even if the perpetrators could be identified, who would track them down and what court would try them? Clearly, whoever committed the acts of September 11 will not submit to a trial without a fight. And who would bring them in? Do the advocates of a "fair trial" really believe that U.S. imperialist armed forces could be an instrument for such a process? Where is the regime on this planet whose soldiers could be the instrument of justice in this case? And does anyone familiar with the workings of the U.S. justice department and its death-penalty president seriously believe that a just trial could occur on U.S. soil? Or that U.S. imperialism would allow such a trial to occur in a world court?

And more to the point, is it not clear from the words and actions of the U.S. power structure–from their massive acts of war–that they are not just moving to respond to the events of September 11. They are not seeking "justice." Rather their aim is to use this war to forcibly recast the world to protect their ability to dominate and exploit the planet and the people–to more firmly secure their grip on the rich oil resources of the Middle East. Behind the talk of "Operation Enduring Freedom" are the aims of unjust empire.

If we think clearly and soberly about the situation, there is no way within the confines of the present world order for justice to be delivered–not by any of the existing world powers, and least of all the U.S. power structure. They can and will do nothing but act against the interests of millions and millions of people, seek to enforce the oppressive and unjust order that serves their interest, and generally make all manner of things worse.

So, our problem, our historic task, is to stand together against this unjust war and to bring about the revolutionary transformation of this world. Only the revolutionary people, rising up in their millions–with a clear program and plan to kick out imperialism and make new democratic revolution–can bring justice in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, and other countries of the Third World. And those who live within the U.S. itself have a responsibility to support the people rising up against oppression around the world and to do our part to make revolution in the belly of this beast.

Then, and only then, will the children of the planet know where justice is and what it looks like."

Miqdad, you made a good point there about the UN being a Non-Democratic organization. I strongly agree with you about it, Only the five permenant members of the UN have the real power to take any decisions. That is very unfare, has anyone thought what could happen if the five powers join hands???
They could lead the world the way they want. They could Dictate the world just because they have the power in their hands. They could really take a disadvantage of the power. We are just young teens and cant think about the whole issue, May be, we dont know the other side of the matter. Even if we were right, we could, or i think that any other country could not not do anything to help the situation. In this case, What do you think should be done? Any one has any ideas? Please give your views about theese issues.
Nazim Hudda
NAZIM I THINK THAT WE CAN THINK ABOUT THE WHOLE ISSUE AS GOOD AS ANY OTHER PERSON YOU CAN THINK OF IT. B/C WE ARE THE FUTURE OF THIS WORLD OR THE NEXT PEOPLE TO RUN THE UN OR RUN A GOVERMENT ...
RIGHT NOW THIS IS ISSUE IN UN THAT THE WORLD HAS PROBLEM WITH IT AND THEY CAN NOT DO ANY THING ABOUT IT BECOUSE OF THIS FIVE PERMENENT MEMBER IN UN
MIQDAD KARIMI
for some reason its not letting me post on the on the other message boards... i wonder if it will let me post on this one
trap seabrook
oh, looks like it worked. well basically i agree with nazim. its hard for any other country to get power in the UN when it has the 5 allied powers with permanent seats. It would be impossible to get these countries to give up their seats too because world powers like to stay world powers. i do believe that most of these countries are the countries who can make good decisions though. i wouldnt really like a third world country leader making up international laws and trying to run the UN. that wouldnt work to well. we do need people who know what theyre doing and who other countries trust, but i dont know if they should also have ALL the power.
trap seabrook
I don’t understand what is different than the humans in 3rd world countries than any other countries. As we know that where we humans have experienced a civilization and were in this world we have experienced the use of atomic bomb, racism and also no tension of doing any good for human race. Generalizes have always been done by a lot of people including Mr. Bush and …
If we remember “ you are with us or against us” claiming this nation wide in TV an presses with out thinking of that there is people who supports peace and they have set their mind to do good for human race.
If Bush can be the chief executive in US, We have a lot of people in third world country better than him and capable of running the UN.
Thank you.
miqdad karimi
Thanks Miqdad for encouraging me, I have some thing that might work. Jow about giving all the nations equal power in the UN? It can work, Think about it and post your iddeas here.

I have some questions to ask about the book "Farewell to Manzanar"
What do you think of jeanne's situation when her father says she can't date outside her race?
Andrell Jones
How about if you were in this situation(same with above), what would you do?
Andrell Jones
Would you ever go against your father's will?
Andrell Jones
Would you choose your love life over your father?
Well, I would choose my love life though..
Andrell Jones

What would you do if your family was to get a letter for internment?
Andrell Jones
How is everyone essay exam on Farewell to Manzanar? I hope you all did good..I think I did good..(Sorry for posting this here, since in other site, I can't, something is wrong with it. Ms.Godbee, can you fix it? Thanks
Andrell Jones
What do you think of a perfect family consists of? Please give me your opinions, thanks.
Andrell Jones

Do you think your family is an all around American family the way it is now?
Andrell Jones
If i were to get a letter of internment, i would prefer to go back to my country than to stay in a country which doesnt offer its citizens the basic rights it is supposed to offer. When a country takes a person as a legal citizen of the country, it has to offer the basic rights which everyone expects from it. The point is equality, a good point to consider is, US fought with Germany and Italy and other nations during the war, then why didnt they cintern them too??? Wht only japneese??
Nazim Hudda
MS Godbee i look forward to see you posting the definition of racism
miqdad karimi

Why isnt any one posting?

MS GODBEE'S DEFINATION OF RACISM IS " POWER + RACIAL PERVILIGE" (SESTEMATIC) SHE SAID " IN US ONLY WITE PEOPLE CAN BE RACEST" I encourag EVERY ONE TO WRITE THEIR IDEA ABOUT THIS ISSUE AND I WOULD LOVE TO READ YOUR IDEAS. THANKS

HEY EVERY ONE I AM BACK I WAS ON MY VECATION. I WENT TO MY COUNTRY
WHICH IS AFGHANISTAN IT WAS COOL VECATION THAT I EVER SEEN IT BEFOR.
ANY WAYS ALOT OF DIFFERNT THINGS THAT IT WAS UNBLEAVEABLE.
OHHH I SEE THE DEFINATION OF RISCM,I BEEN LOOKING FOR IT LONG TIME AGO.THATS REALLY NICE AND PERFECT DEFINATION.
I thought farwell to manzanar was a good book. It gave me a lot of insight on something i knew little about. It seems that in the past they have really focused on the holocaust and those camps. And have seemed to overlook the internment camps.

hi
SHANELL MERRIWETHER
i dont feel that the internment camps was like slavery, but they both had some similar points. They both were taken unwillingly and placed in bad living situations but in the internment camps they weren't really forced to do hard labor.
shanell merriwether

I feel that they gave them weird foods because they really didn't care. It was not their priority to make sure they had good food to eat. They gave them whatever just to keep them alive. Funds also could have been low too, because of the war.
shanell merriwether
I would go against my fathers will if it was something i really felt strongly for and really believed in. Even if it didn't turn out good in the end that would still be a good learning experience for me.
shanell merriwether
there is no "perfect family". many people live in single parent household, with relatives, joint living etc... Many people are happy with what they have now. a lot of people just do their own thing and it just seems to work for them.
shanell merriwether
i wouldn't consider my family all american although we have 2 parents, a son and a daughter, a dog, and we live in the suburbs. I mean both my parents work, we dont have family dinners everyday, we disagree, we get mad, we get over it, we have fun. I would consider that more the norm now than in the 1960's. Maybe we are an all american family for this time period.
shanell merriwether
shanell merriwether
I think i did pretty good on my essay. i think i should have put a bit more detail though.

thanks Hoa Vu for posting all the GHSGT Qs i really needed them. i am going to take that GhG test next semester.
Gylsere

this the latest news that i read in BBC and i think it is a really important i hope you all will enjoy it

"Bush gives go-ahead to missile defence

There have been eight tests so far
President George W Bush has ordered the United States military to begin deploying a national missile defence system by 2004.
Announcing the decision in a written statement, Mr Bush said the new "modest capabilities" - said to begin with the deployment of 10 ground-based interceptor rockets - "will add to America's security and serve as a starting point for improved and expanded capabilities later".
The decision comes days after the latest failure of an anti-missile test over the Pacific Ocean.
The programme has been gathering pace, with Mr Bush requesting the use of facilities in the UK and Denmark.
In June, the US withdrew from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty it signed with the former Soviet Union, seeing it as constraining its ability to test new anti-missile defense.
Despite international criticism, Washington has insisted on developing the programme to defend against incoming missiles from what it calls "rogue states".
Gathering pace
"The United States will take every necessary measure to protect our citizens against what is perhaps the greatest danger of all: The catastrophic harm that may result from hostile states or terrorist groups armed with weapons of mass destruction and the means to deliver them," Mr Bush said in his statement, read by White House spokesman Ari Fleischer.
"Today I am pleased to announce that we will take another important step in countering these threats by beginning to field missile defence capability to protect the United States as well as our friends and allies."
Click to see how NMD might work
Details of the deployment at Fort Greeley, Alaska, are expected to be announced later, but media reports say the 10 interceptors supposed to be operational by 2004 are to be followed by another 10 a year or two later.
Mr Bush and his Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld say the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and missile technology have sharply increased the need for such a defence against attack from "rogue states" - such as Iran, Iraq and North Korea - which has announced the resumption of its nuclear weapons programme.
Work under way
The Fylingdales base in Britain has an advanced radar which could track missiles that could then, in theory, be shot down as they neared the US coast.
The Danish site, in Greenland, is also a radar station.
There have been eight tests of interceptor missiles so far - three have failed.
In June, the US started work on the construction of the Alaska test site for the missile defence system.
A set of silos is being built and is expected to be fully operational by 2007.
There has been considerable scepticism that the eventual goal, of a comprehensive shield capable of protecting the US from any missile attack, will ever be achievable."

"The United States will take every necessary measure to protect our citizens against what is perhaps the greatest danger of all: The catastrophic harm that may result from hostile states or terrorist groups armed with weapons of mass destruction and the means to deliver them," Mr Bush said in his statement, read by White House spokesman Ari Fleischer.
"Today I am pleased to announce that we will take another important step in countering these threats by beginning to field missile defence capability to protect the United States as well as our friends and allies."

Details of the deployment at Fort Greeley, Alaska, are expected to be announced later, but media reports say the 10 interceptors supposed to be operational by 2004 are to be followed by another 10 a year or two later.
Mr Bush and his Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld say the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and missile technology have sharply increased the need for such a defence against attack from "rogue states" - such as Iran, Iraq and North Korea - which has announced the resumption of its nuclear weapons programme.
Work under way
The Fylingdales base in Britain has an advanced radar which could track missiles that could then, in theory, be shot down as they neared the US coast.
The Danish site, in Greenland, is also a radar station.
There have been eight tests of interceptor missiles so far - three have failed.
In June, the US started work on the construction of the Alaska test site for the missile defence system.
A set of silos is being built and is expected to be fully operational by 2007.
There has been considerable scepticism that the eventual goal, of a comprehensive shield capable of protecting the US from any missile attack, will ever be achievable."

I think that slave owners thought of slaves as a pile of rotten eggs because thats how they treated them

Slaves tried to escape on the underground railrad. Most of them made it to the North without getting cought. The underground railroad was not an a real rail road. It was when the Quakers and some other people helped the slaves to the North by transporting them secretly. Hariat Tubman was one of the most famous slaves that helped others. Hariat Tubman went North and South ninteen times to help hundres of slaves to freedom

what is this conversation about?

Wha?
I don't believe that slaver was good, I believe it was necessary. Without blacks, we would never have won the revolutionary war over Britian (who outlawd slavery). Slaves provided free labor during the war and blacks would help out in factories, making weapons,amo,ect.. So, without slaves, we wouldn't be the land of the free. I believe that many blacks got a free ride to the best country in the world. Blacks today see slavery as bad, but without it, they would still be jumping around a fire,naked in Africa, starving, spreading AIDs, and making countries around the world pay for their meeningless, non-existant lives. We should have followed Jefferson's idea and shipped them back to Africa instead of listening to them bitch about how we owe them money. Don't get me started on reperations. If blacks got money from the gov't, it would be no better than some black crack-head cashing in his welfare check to buy crack so he can smoke it in his gov't created low income project only to get high and rob the nearest Burger King so they can get high and do the same thing tomorrow. Learn how to spell!
what is this

What was the MAIN cause of the civel war?? I'v gotten like 5 diffrent answers and none of them are correct!

what the hell i cant believe that she/said that. you must not be a black person to say a thing like that. if you believe that we are a bunch of naked people running around fires. you are definitly a racist. if you are an american i am ashamed of you. slavery was not necessary, we did not choose to be in this country. if you are smart you would know that we eatablish our own society. we flourished in trade.we had spices, gold, and other great things. the europeans came to us! if you want to talk, get the facts straight. you dont know anything about anything, you must have been bored. say something more positive racist!!
How do people know what your personality is like by what you are wearing?
