Today in class, we were discussing racism. I still feel that racism exists.The ways that it exist that when you are walking down the street sometimes, someone will just come up to you and say "I don't like you because you are....."Steve Harmon experiences some type of racism because people already started judging him because he is Black. Some people say they don't like Africans but I don't care because I am proud of it and nobody can change that. I am black, 3 different types of African, and some other things I can't count. The people that don't like Africans really don't know that their ancestors are African. Some say that Africans are dirty and stink but sometimes what they are really smelling is them selves. There is nothing wrong with being African and if people don't like me because of that, that's their business because they really don't know who they are!!

I think that there is racism in are country's court system. Most of the time, a minority can't get a fair trial. This is because once they walk in the court room, people think to them selves, She/He might be guilty because she/he is a black or Hispanic. I don't think that Steve will get a fair trial because they are already calling him a monster and they don't even have proof that he is guilty. I think that O'Brien feels that the jury is judging Steve unfair.

Many people think that our country's court system is unfair. I think that they feel this way because they feel that people discriminate against them. I think that their are more blacks in jail than college because they don't believe in themselves and nobody really encourages them. This is my opinion about racism.

In this world, people use very cruel and harsh words. It is very powerful. I think people call each other names because the want attention and want to just start problems. People don't really call me names. They just talk under their breath. I know that people feel sad when people call them names because even though they say words don't hurt, most of the time it hurts. I always see people getting bullied. I think people feel power less when the get bullied.

Petrocelli calls Steve a "Monster" because she thinks he murdered someone. I don't bully no one but when I argue with my siblings, I call them animals. Steve feels intimidated when called a monster. After he is called a monster, he decides to write a movie about his time in jail. I don't think that Steve feels like a monster because he says that he didn't murder the store owner. I think that he is just guilty by association.

I think that the jury see Steve as a monster because he is black, and on trial. If I was on jury, I wouldn't think that Steve is a monster. That is because I would have to actually find out if he killed that man. The book is titled monster because, basically, Steve's nick name is monster.

Aim: how do we solve proportions by using cross products?

Today in class, we learned how to solve proportions using cross products. Cross multiply is a easier way to solve proportions because it make the work easier by organizing it for you. All you have to do is circle the numbers diagonally and multiply.

2 x
_ = __; 2x=36; x=18
3 12

There is many things wrong with this is that instead of cross multiplying, they went straight across. That is why this person received the answer of 18.

The way you find out if the ratio of 6:45 and 2:15 is first, you multiply 6 and 15. That becomes 90. Then, you multiply 2 and 45 which is 90. Both ratios are 90 so it is proportional.

For example, 12/15, x/20. First you have circle 12 and 20 and 15 and x. Then you multiply 12 and 20 and that be
