This show is a recreated version of a book called Fresh Off the Boat written by a hip-hop loving chef, named Eddie Huang, on how he grew up as a Chinese kid in the 1990s. With the show he seems to act like an “OG” (Original Gangster) trying to live his life with the influence of many role models like, Notorious B.I.G, Tupac, Shaq and his video game Shaq Fu, and also many others. Eddie grew up surrounded by prejudice, but he found his way into popularity in school after having his first fight against a boy that called him a “chink”.

In the pilot episode of Fresh off the Boat, 11 year old Eddie Huang obsesses over hip-hop and the culture of African-Americans. Which is seen as an art form in the sense that he viewed himself as an outsider in the realms of mainstream society. He is seen in the opening scene wearing a full set track suit with multiple chains wrapped around his neck, a snapback hat on his head, listening to his “idles” Biggie and Nas. The viewers are then able to see the Huang’s drive through their new neighborhood and notice that the only other minorities evident in the community are the mailmen, gardener, and a nanny.

Who else can tell the story of the family of 12 that lives in only three rooms of a ten-roomed house in the dusty outskirts of Harare? Who?

To be quite honest, I have never heard of James”Whitey” Bulger, and I was born and raised in the city of Boston. My family has resided in Boston since the early 1970’s and they have never mentioned him. Therefore, in order to write this paper and actually know who is James “Whitey” Bulger, I watched the recent film Black Mass which is based on his story. I found the Bulger story to be quite terrifying and unbelievable, I believe the film did a great job portraying his life as a gangster in Boston. Bulger story gives a perfect demonstration of the criminological theories we have discussed in class.

CINCINNATI – No matter how good a scout is, or how advanced analytics become, there will always be an element of crapshoot in the draft, an inevitable by-product of trying to project what young men aged 18-22 will become three or four years down the line. That’s how Mike Trout, arguably the best player on the planet, lasts until pick No. 25 in 2009, selected right after Jared Mitchell and Randal Grichuk. At the time he played for a small high school in New Jersey and hadn’t really been tested in any prominent showcase, allowing the Los Angeles Angels to basically steal him that low. Big whoopsie by a lot teams on that one.
