That's inevitably a significant news to be heard,and be affirmative to avoid scammers and viruses for the rate of them are higher.
Indeed, it is that movie. It was in the making for over twenty years, and that's what makes it even more outstanding. Ben Kingsley was an excellent actor too, having been able to embody the "true spirit of Mahatma Gandhi" in a way that was quite successful, I almost thought I was looking at the great spiritual leader (turned pop icon) himself. Oh, by the way, Sprinks!!! Maan, I'm so sorry I wasn't able to return to write again. I got my nose absorbed in chem. You see, we had a lab report due Wednesday (moved to Thursday as classes were suspended in the afternoon--whee! ) and I was alarmed since I spent most of our four-day weekend, er, chatting. Turns out that person would never show up in my YM again. Anyways, don't forget to drop by in case you can and see ya around!
Is that the Ghandi movie with Ben Kingsley playing Ghandi? That was a good movie.
well I said I'd come back, and I did.... I'll try and make time to come back tomorrow as well!
Which reminds me of Charles Schultz' words: "Don't worry that the world's going to end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia.) So it is too, right here!
wow thats a lot of money! Yay that you got permanent internet though!! I'll be sure to check your blog tomorrow
Funny spelling? Oh, but it's a common practice here where I am. Not on formal writings, of course! Thanks anyway, Virgil. As to your comment on my hair, thanks a lot (), but no, unfortunately, I cannot have green hair even though I wanted to (Not that I really want to, no siree!), otherwise I'd get myself kicked out of school. Seriously. And hey, eyemaker. Yep, I received your SMS about it and I'm sure you will send your comments too when you find the time to do so. I understand how busy you are (and how busy we both are!), so it is unnecessary for you to worry about your life. (Btw, the "Graduation Day" message you sent me this morning was really funny. I had a great laugh out of it. Did you make it? ) And hey, andya! Man, did I really miss you! Actually, I miss being here at litnet. So much has changed since the last time I was a "true member" here. Hope to see you around, and good luck for everything!
Of course I remember Rockit. You're the one with the funny spelling. Nice to see you back.
Rock, Actually I have visited your school blog but I have no enough time reading the posts there..but, surely I'll be visiting it after my exams. You see, I still have my midterm exams. I promise to post a comment. I think I have to go now. By the way, WELCOME BACK!
No, No, No Kit, of course we haven't forgotten you!! In fact I've been thinking of you for a while and hoping that you are ok!! Glad to hear everything is going well -- your writing style is impeccably polished and witty -- and really happy for you about the blog! That sounds brilliant!
I've been saving this blog. I think I have some experience with discrimination although I canít say Iíve really been discriminated against. Itís rampant in my area. In fact, if people ask where Iím from I say one of the small communities instead of the only big town around because of itís negative associations with the KKK. Itís a little crazy around here. The really strange part is that we moved here from Memphis, TN. Where I was the only white girl in my class. Talk about culture shock! Of course there have been people who thought that there were things I couldnít do because Iím a girl, I hate that. And I suppose lots of people have been treated poorly because socioeconomic factors.
I agree real discrimnation is wrong. Discriminating because of one's identity, race, religion, gender is immoral. But when I hear some people talk about discrimination I find it completely trivialized. It is not discrimination to make assumptions about the way people look based on their dress or appearance. The person who dresses in a particular way is communicating something and the person on the other end is receiving and interpreting the communication. The person who dresses in a particular fashion understands what he is saying and associating himself with. The person recieving those signals has built a lifetime of associations. To deny the associations exist is like denying that short people have a harder time playing basketball. This is a much more complicated subject than most people, especially young people, really understand.
My name is Jessica and if you want you can include me and my name. In the country where I grew up discrimination is an every day thing. Even thought when we get to America people do discriminate against us for almost the same reason we discriminate people there. The main reasons are race and looks. Religion hasn't really mattered since it wasn't always legal in the system and wealth? we're all poor.
I grew up with discrimination seeing as my family was somewhat rich, compared with what America deems rich, we were below middle class but I had shoes and food when my friends had very little of those things. A lack of food causes starvation and skinniness so even thought looking at my pictures I look skinny compared with my friends, I was the fat kid. People always discriminated against me because of this, called me names, and I ended up growing with little to none self-esteem.
When I came to America (We won the Visa lottery) people made fun of me because I didn't speak english and discriminated against me because of my accent and my looks. People still discriminate against me even thought my english is technically perfect and my looks aren't cookie-cutter flat-chested blond airhead.
Even thought I know how discrimination hurts people I'm guilty of looking down on others, I was raised to discriminate and I can't just stop it. I don't say but I think little of those different from me. For example, the other day I went to a Mexican supermarket and I felt disgust, not because I don't like Mexicans, I mean, I don't know any. But because that was what I was raised to feel. They're so different from me: shorter, darker, a bit less pretty.
I'm working on overcoming my discriminative instincts but it's not easy. Our upbringing always works against us and it takes a conscious effort to stop doing something because you just realized it it's wrong.
While most people think about those being discriminated they don't realized that the person who is doing the discrimination is often misguided and they may be trying to stop.
I am against discrimination as a whole but I am also guilty of it.
Let's see where to begin? It is an unfortunate part of human nature to discriminate on a variety of levels but you have captured he main unsavory levels well. Youmay use my first name Rich in any school project you like. Growing up the main discrimeinations were based on a sorry lack of personal pleasing looks and a clumsy performance in sports. To this day I have almost no interest in what teams are going to the Super Bowl and perk up only when an athlete gets into trouble. And this is the rub--I am discriminating against sports people simply because of painful memories of gym class as opposed to appreciating their personal victories and performances in their sphere of influence. Ultimately I believe that I am the greater offender because I should KNOW better. As to social status I have tried to be content in whatsoever state I am in (per the Bible) and not take too seriously the disdain of the rich. Not that I have known that many. On the rare occasion I am in their presence courtesy is always maintained both ways and I'm generally background noise anyhow. I wish best behind the scenes anyway. If I may gently suggest I suspect you cncern yourself a bit too much with the opinions of others - real or imagined--if I am wrong I tender an apology effective immediately. This may be the context of your blog and I'm reading too much of 'you' in it. Please forgive. Now as to religious discrimination I ahve always been puzzled, appalled and irritated at 'Chrisitian" who behave worse then the Pharisee in their treatment of outsiders. My personal belief is that God treats us all the same based on how He created us and cries of no fair have no real bearing on the relationship. It is my place, responsibility and privilege to share not bludgeon a person about their soul. Holier then thou attitudes are offensive to God and insulting to a real believer. Just saying. Hope this helps. By the by--I'm 57 years now and this is based on years of experience good and bad and many many missteps. We try to learn from our mistakes.
