I think racism still exist .I think that because i still see white act racism. I truly think that white still think that black are slaves.Racim exist when you want to play with other peoples and they said No because your race .I don't think so.

I still think that Racism still exist. Can a minority get a fair trial? Why or why not? Do you think Steve Harmon will get a fair trial? Why? Why Not? How do you think O'Brien feels about the Jury they selected for Steve's trail?

Why do you feel some people think that our country's court systems are racist? Why do you feel there are more black men in jail than college?

How powerful is the language that we use? Why do people call each other names? How often do you call people names? Do you think about how the person might feel when you call them the name? How often do you see others being called name? Is there anyone in your school who is teased for being Gay? How do you think people feel when they are constantly teased?
Why does Petrocelli call Steve a "Monster"? What metaphors do you compare people to when you name call? How does Steve feel about being called a monster? What does he doe after he is called a monster? Do you think Steve feels like a monster? Do you think Steve is a monster? Do you think he is innocent or guilty?
Do you think the jury sees Steve as a monster? If you were on the jury would you think Steve was a monster? Why? why not? Why did Steve title his book monster?

Think and Discuss

The first thing that pops into my head when I here the terms cross multiply it helps me solve proportion by multiplying the numerator from one ratio and multiply the denominator by the other ratio numerator. After multiplying i would find out if its proportion or not.

Identify the error in this problem:
2/3 = x/12 2x = 36; x = 18
The error in this problem is that they multiplied 3 x 12 which they was suppose to multiply
2 x 12. This is how the problem should have been
2/3 = x/12
3x = 24
x = 8
Are this proportional ?
6/45 and 2/15
6 x 15 = 90 45 x 2 = 90
Both problems are the same answer so this problem is proportional

Hyperbole .

One of my hyperbole is "Your dog is so so so stupid he doesn't know who's his owner. I think peoples use hyperboles to exagerate on what they said. They also use hyperboles to show the feelings that he or she is talking. The hyperbole I use daily is your taking more then 100 minutes in the showers because in the mourning my sister takes for ever in the shower. My favorite figurative language is IDIOMS. Idioms is my favorite because your exagerating .

Easy as pie means that its easy to do something. Also, I use is raining Cats and Dogs .That means its raining a lot.
