The movie Pinky took place during the 1940s where black people were mistreated. The movie is about a young light skinned black woman who was from the south and moved up to the North to become a nurse. Back then black people were not allowed to go to school, but Pinky passed as a white girl. When she was in school in the north, she fell in love with a white doctor, Thomas Adams. Thomas knew nothing about Pinky’s background about being a light skinned black woman because he thought she was white.
“Yo, you got the juice now, man”, is the renowned phrase that will go down in history. Juice, released in 1992, is a classic African-American crime thriller directed by Ernest R. Dickerson. The film follows the life of four friends- aspiring DJ Quincy, belligerent Bishop, womanizer Raheem, and quirky Steel- in Harlem as they navigate through friendship, manhood, and power. Juice follows the day-to-day activities in the lives of the young men starting out as petty mischief, but growing more serious as time passes by. Fed up with what little respect the group receives, Bishop convinces his friends to rob the local convenience store to give them more “juice”. As one could imagine, things take a turn for the worst as the characters cross lines and spill blood. The film also focuses on the struggles that these young men must go through every day as well, such as police harassment, rival neighborhood gangs, and their families. Juice is a classic movie that everyone should see because it touches on concepts and life lessons that are still relevant to this day, including people are not always who they say they are, it is important not to follow others, and that you should be careful about what you wish for.

I did not know how to react, a mini panic attack was occurring inside my head. Since I was thirteen, I did not know much about cancer. All I knew was that people could die from it. My dad, my hero, was now fighting for his life. I wondered how long my parents had hid this from me. Even though I had many questions, I only asked, "What did the doctors say and when will he come home?" My mom replied, "It will take him some time to recover." I could not feel my body, though I started to shiver. I started to cry while my mom held me tight.
Like most performances, “Kinky Boots” is highly educative and informative owing to the plot and storyline which have a different approach as opposed to most plays. As such, my choice to select “kinky Boots” as my performance of choice is influenced by the international acclaim the play has received from the time of its debut. Notably, the play has a variety of advantages owing to the level of experience of its writers, cast, and crew members. However, the show has managed to attract a large demographic because of its use of theatrics showcased in the performance. The response discusses my personal opinion of the play “Kinky Boots” which I attended in the Boston Opera House on the 11th of august.
Building an Empire becomes problematic when the colonizers know nothing about the territory being colonized. Britain began colonizing India in the 1700s, completely ignorant about the people of India and their cultural and religious beliefs. Ignorance comes from a lack of knowledge. This lack of knowledge can be by choice, like in this situation. Despite their ignorance, Englishmen still came into India with an arrogant attitude. They believed they were superior to the people of India, therefore it did not matter what the people of India believed or how British actions made them feel. In “The Mark of the Beast”, Rudyard Kipling uses symbolism to portray ignorance and arrogance in India brought on during its colonization by Britain. The character of Fleete exemplifies that ignorance and insensitivity, and he ultimately pays a grave price.

Dodgeball; the greatest elimination game on Earth. What would you think if you could never play it again? I, for one, would be crushed that could never play it again. Many principals in Elkton, Maryland banned dodgeball because they believed it was inappropriate. They removed it from the P.E. curriculum just recently. I believe that dodgeball shouldn’t be taken out of the curriculum because it helps them be more aware, teaches them about life, and it leads to more games being taken away.
Entering a room and looking at a handful of people, a brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel and a recluse, one wonders “What do all of these people have in common?” Detention. The answer is detention. The Breakfast Club written and directed by John Hugh’s stars Anthony Michael Hall as Brian Johnson: the brain, Molly Ringwald as Claire Standish: a beauty, Emilio Estevez as Andrew Clark: the jock, Judd Nelson as John Bender: the rebel, and Ally Sheedy as Allison Reynolds: the recluse. The Breakfast Club only won one award, the MTV Movie Silver Bucket of Excellence Award; however, it is considered a “textbook romantic comedy” among today’s culture. The diverse characters, classic soundtrack, and even the unsuspecting love stories entice people to watch
The theater tries to replicate the feeling of being in a state of dreaming. (Groen, 2002, Para.7). The state of dreaming makes the movie you are viewing very personal (Groen, 2002, Para. 7).
I am e-mailing in reference to Jailin's Story Motions Graph assignment and Motion Test. I know that the quarter is ending and I have done very well with keeping up with his assignments but the Story Motion Graph I must have missed. Is there any way he can spend some time making this up or even e-mail it to you this weekend. I am also concern about his Motion Test grade that was just placed in. I know he was not as prepared for it as he expected. The assignment was added on the 18th but the grade did not show up until maybe a day or two ago. I would like to have him retake this test. As indicated I know the quarter is ending and I can even have Jailin at school on Monday for the workday if I need to. Please let me know your
