Segregation has resulted in boycotts, protests, violence, and has caused much difficulty when police try to enforce it on people. It is unfair, and everyone knows it which results in people fighting to end it.

In Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” he wrote, “The nations of Asia and Africa are moving with jet-like speed toward the goal of political independence, but we still creep at horse-and-buggy pace toward the gaining of a cup of coffee at a lunch counter.” Dr. King states America’s problem beautifully, writing about how other nations are progressing while America is stuck fighting over segregation. If America is to improve as a country, it first must end segregation between races, and work

Personally, euthanasia should be legal because it can help economic issues which is one of the most problems in the society and it allow patients to decide about themselves.

Media Influences on American Culture By Jacquetta Brown October 4, 2015 Allyson Wells In some ways yes I think information media does have a social responsibility.

In “Black Friday: Consumerism Minus Civilization” Andrew Leonard argues about ad spree by retailers and the consumers’ frenzy for buying on Black Friday that cross all limits of civilization. Leonard shows how Macy’s, Target and Kohls ad drive the consumers to buying craze on Thanks giving holiday. To illustrate his idea Leonard gives such specific examples of specific stores.

Andrew Leonard gives a clear stance on his argument "Black Friday: Consumerism Minus Civilization". When we look at the article the reader can infer that Leonard is against "Black Friday" and he makes his point clear when he says "I find the notion that we should "occupy Black Friday" and without our consumer dollars as a way of hitting back at the 1 percent just nutty."(Leonard).

Leonard gives us enough information in the argument to lead us to the same conclusion that he drew. How Leonard leads us to

The article regarding Chipotle was a very interesting review, being that it is also highlighted in the ascribed text for the Business course. As it applies to the chapter, I found it very hard to narrow it down to only just the topic on microeconomics and the forces behind supply and demand.
