In a polarized political environment such as the one we find ourselves in, it is absolutely vital to the prospects of limiting the vitriol that exists behind policy-based divisions that we are able to make clear exactly what it is we are discussing. Far too often the substantive issues at the core of our disagreements are lost in the semantics of what exists today as a charlatanic excuse for political discourse. Well, we will give it a shot anyway.

There’s no question that we’re surrounded by advertisements, and the obvious truth is that we don’t really care about it. From product placement in our favorite shows and movies to the panel ads on an overcrowded REXL, ads are a quotidian feature of our lives. Most ads are boring and make no bones about it, but there’s always been a cutting edge form of advertising that plays on the popular thought of the time.

Bound and gagged, American democracy is held as a hostage of the rich and powerful. The system of power in our nation has closed off the faucet that flows to the people, diverting efficacy and influence to those at the top of the socioeconomic hierarchy.

Privilege is the idea that some people benefit from advantages that are unearned and are, for the most part, unacknowledged. An individual will have privilege in at least one aspect of their identity: race, skin color, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, socioeconomic background, mental wellness, physical ability, physical appearance and/or immigration status.
This past week, I was in class when my teacher asked us for our opinions and analyses of the story we were reading. We could say anything we wanted to, or so I thought. The story, in short, was about a group of kids picking on another group of special needs children. The teacher asked how having the group of special needs children changed the story. I said that having them be special needs elicited a strong sympathetic reaction, from the readers, to their circumstances within the story.

Still, many wondered if Smith would portray the character as he appears in the animated film, and to those watching the Grammys, Genie was finally revealed.

Nevertheless, having different kinds of people to provide an emotional place of shelter or simply a voice among the ruckus can change one's life for the better.
