Maguerite Duras once said, “The thing that’s between us is fascination, and the fascination resides in our being alike. Whether you’re a man or a women, the fascination resides in finding out that we’re alike.” This is true for Sal. She was fascinated how the situation Phoebe was in was so similar to hers. She didn’t want it to end the way her situation ended with her mother never coming back.
Opening my eyes, I heard mom’s busy steps getting ready to leave for work. Then, I realized that my mom is going to leave soon. I grabbed her legs and did not let her go. As soon as I started crying, she kept comforting and hugging me. My dad and my sister tried to separate me from mom, so she could leave.

In “Talking White”, Jamelle Bouie addresses how white people in society evaluate African-Americans when they speak a certain way. Whether it’s using “proper” English or African American Vernacular English (Ebonics), because of this stereotype on how we should talk, African Americans are put in category of intelligence. He uses the ideas of Jason Riley, a Wall Street Journal columnist, John Ogbu, a professor of anthropology, Ron Christie and Stuart Buck authors, and sociologists Karolyn Tyson, William Darity Jr., and Domini Castellino to connect his thoughts and theories. He also uses a video from Live Leaks about a black woman’s opinions on proper English to tie his whole article together. His point was that this is an example of racial ridiculing and black people shouldn’t let it be a feature of black culture.
Attention passengers an inbound train towards the loop will be arriving shortly. This short, descriptive, and monotone sentence spoken by an automated program over the loud speaker of Chicago’s orange line platform may be meaningless and insignificant to most. But in fact, this monotone sentence impacted my childhood and made me into the person I am today. Standing on Chicago’s orange line platform in one hundred degrees heat was miserable, but hearing those train doors open with the rush of freezing air conditioning hitting against my face was absolute heaven. My father was very active and loved traveling through Chicago, my brother and I always were forever along for the ride.
“I don 't want people losing respect for me as a player. I want to go out in every game and perform to the highest level. I have no retirement plans. I 've had a lot of injuries but I want to continue playing.”- Robbie Fowler.
A delusional father. A failed son. A broken home. The problematic situations of a troubled family in their day-to-day affairs and in their relationships with one another.
In late fall 2011 I had begun to settle down. I was very familiar with my new school; I had built up a great reason repeoine with my teachers, I did not quite connect with my old friends, but I had met new ones. Everything was going well except my family life. I went to school one day at 7:15a.m. arrived at home at 3:00p.m.
At the time, I didn 't understand. I wanted to, but I couldn 't. I was too young, too naive, and too unsure of myself. My mother would just lay there on the couch, too tired to provide for me or treat me like her child. In my more adolescent stages, I was surrounded by people like my mother- itching for their next high, willing to do anything to achieve it. Addiction can be scary, especially for a child of eight or nine.
