Before I comment, I have a few questions. Are the "5 biggest HBCUs" determined by their population alone or is their funding taken into consideration? Do you find any other HBCUs (besides the aforemetioned colleges) that had courses dealing with enviromental issues? Also, can the fact that many HBCUs are located in suburban or rural areas (where there would be less observable pollution) affect how much attention is given to environmental issues?
Great topic! Here's my list:
~ creation myth
~ Noah's ark
~ the devil
~ virgin birth
~ god's 360 attitude in the New Testament
~ water to wine
~ rising from the dead
~ the trinity (although this seems to be more interpretation than actual text)
...The list goes on for me.
Think about it, they are paid to: have masters,( the coach the general manager etc), they must do whatever their masters say ie dress, apologize for fights or lose the job etc...
Then they get traded or cut at any time at the descretion of whom: THEIR MASTERS; reminds me of slavery
On top of it all they work hard every night trying to win a championship while many of their white teammates sit on the bench and get paid a nice salary for nothing.
In too many ways Professional Athletic Associations symbolize slavery
If you think that professional athletes are slaves, I'd like to know what you think of people who work for the government, private companies, etc. I can see where you're coming from, but in all honesty, athletes are just like everyone else...using their skills to get a paycheck (a pretty hefty on at that). At any job (unless you are self-employed) you will have someone in a higher position to answer to. Your boss DOES NOT equal your master. If you are intending to point out the racial indifferences in professional sports, then there's no argument here (I believe there are racial indifferences in most places of employment). But, I think that comparing black athletes to slaves is digging a little too deep.
It's not a suite style...there is no lobby between the rooms. There's only one main lobby downstairs with a study room. The bathroom situation is kinda hard to explain. But, here goes...
~The rooms in the main hallway share a bathroom...so they have 2 rooms to a bathroom. These bathrooms are located inside the rooms. (pro - you can decorate the bathroom and leave your belongings in there without worrying that someone who doesn't live there will mess things up; con - the cleaning ladies are probably not allowed to go into your room without your permission, so they can't clean the bathroom or stock it up with soap and stuff....you might have to clean it yourself)
~The rooms in the corner halls share a bathroom which is located outside of the rooms, in a common area. They have 4 rooms to a bathroom. (pro - the cleaning ladies can clean the bathroom; con - 4 rooms=8 people sharing a bathroom)
~The rooms in the small hallways (located in the middle of the building on each floor near the elevator) usually have 2 rooms to a bathroom. (pro - bathroom will be cleaned and 2 rooms=4 people; con - don't really see one....that's why I live in a small hallway :-D )
If you want a dorm that has suites, you might want to check out McGrew. Queen Street has lobbies on each floor, but it's not suite style (where only a few rooms share a bathroom).
So for our Senior year we have to right this 10 page paper on a public policy, but I dont know which one to choose:
Last year some people did:
Abortion-You need parents consent
Weed-Legalization of Marijuana (weed should be legal)
So its basically like you have to pick an issue and want to change it in someway.
I just started reading "why are all the black kids sitting together in the cafeteria" by Dr. Tatum (Spelman College)....so I was thinking about doing something along the lines of self-segregation or something
The thing is I want to make it interesting, no dry over done topics
Got any ideas?
Yeah...self segregation along those lines wouldn't really be public policy issues. The weed topic might be interesting considering Denver recently legalized small amounts of weed possesion for adults.
Athletes are grossly overpaid. But, so are actors and other entertainment figures. The more we spend on the entertainment business, the more money these people get. It's ridiculous that a rapper can have a huge mansion and a lot full of cars, but some of our teachers and other public servants are barely making ends meet.
I wouldn't like a guy calling me a "BI", even if it was in jest. None of my male friends refer to me that way, and as long as they want to remain friends, it will stay like that. Otherwise, as long as it isn't said offensively, I don't care.
Some people park their cars at the Convocation parking lot when they can't get a sticker....not sure how safe that is though. I think CEC is the Modulars....and that's a good place to stay. It's hardly like a dorm. It has huge rooms and each room has a seperate bathroom. There's no dorm director, so you would have 24/7 visitation.
From what I hear, the problems have been going on over there for quite sometime, and until Hotel Rowanda (and an HBO equivalent) landed on the big screen, the public wasn't even in the know.
There will be no discussion of this at the G8 summit for one reason and one reason alone.......there is no benefit in helping to put an end to this genocide. The G8 (what a pompus name) countries don't just help other countries out of sheer kindness. Unless these autrocities begin to affect the oil or diamond exports from Africa (or there is a massive American outcry to have our government intervene....which is unlikely), then our government will not get involved.
