My’esha JohnsonWheeler 1. Roxane was a regular customer at best buy buying items she may or may not have needed a. When she bought a PlayStation and earned a free game with the purchase, the man at the checkout didn’t believe her and didn’t want to take the security box off therefore her feeling embarrassed b. The view on the world helped her notice that racism was still into play c. I don’t think she changed as a person from it but I do know her mood quickly changed in the store yet still trying to remain calm 2. I feel as if this essay was a good example of how people still are because it’s not always acts of racism that are violent that we always see on the news 3. The author could have gave more details like the looks she was given, the exact words on twitter that were directed, and exactly how she felt and how it affected her 4. This is more of a rough draft because more work can still be done to this 5. This essay is identifiable because I do still see racism and jokes that are still being played everyday and it is upsetting that the “race car” won’t be put down 6. The target audience could be the general group of people that doesn’t pay attention and that needs to realize that these acts are still being put out towards people because of what they are 7. I honestly don’t know how it shows the old self vs. new self because I don’t see how she changed as a person from this essay 8. I will be writing about how band and the members in it have helped me with my personality 9. Before I was in band I wasn’t sure how I wanted to act upon myself. I knew exactly who I was but I wasn’t sure if I wanted everyone else to find out. So instead of showing my true colors I rubbed off on everyone else around me. I would choose a group of friends and start to do the things and say the things they said to seem “normal” or just simply be like everyone else to fit in. a. 5th grade was the first year I started band class. It was the best thing that happened to me because it was just something that made me happy no matter what day I was having. Later in the years I noticed that the members around me were all different but in a “common” way. And it helped me push towards being myself because there wasn’t really a group who acted the same that I could copy off of essentially. b. Now i’m a totally different person in many ways. I perceive myself as a very outgoing person, that i’ve heard many times before. I don’t really care what people say about anything I do because at the end of the day there is really nothing they can do about it because i’m not them. If someone tries to talk down on me or make something it isn’t I don’t really give attention to it because I truly know who I am inside and out. The world will always have the percentage of people who want to fit in while the few like me start our own traits.
