His argument clearly states that African Americans are playing more roles in Hollywood blockbusters as mentors or in this case “god like” for the main characters. However, many of the roles played by African Americans are that of mentors and are not receiving the proper applause they should be receiving. Matt Seitz presents great material in his article that doesn’t sound bias and enough information to make him credible. Interesting enough, Matt Seitz isn’t biased in his argument.

CPE is meant to create more Ben Carsons so that everyone can have the same opportunity.

Jeremy Smith writes about the American policy’s negative effects on immigrants, particularly unaccompanied minors to unearth why they are criticized so harshly.
