~Hate Radio~

We had to read "Hate Radio" by Patricia J. Williams. This is a very opinionated essay about how she feels discomforted by the radio. She does not like most radio broadcasters personalities. Such as Howard Stern and Rush Limbaugh. She thinks that the things these people say on the radio are very racial and produces problems of tolerance. I am going to answer #3. Williams says that the media is begining to lose trust in everyone that is listening to it. She states "We must ask ourselves what the expected result is, not of much support, so much investment in the fashionability of hate."

5 picture essay of detroit

Is it vandalism? Is it art? Does it promote gangs? In Detroit, the graffiti is everywhere and it serves all purposes. It may be used by store owners to advertise. It’s on buildings, in the alleys, and even abandoned. It should be enjoyed regardless of what you want to call it. A lot of these pieces are better than works you can find in books. But personally I think that a piece of art that is in an art studio is more "arty" that something that is drawn on a wall (grafitti). Some people are doing it for a business or just for looks but others are writting in appropriate things and gang signs and names on places.

"Best of.."

I did my second paper on the Detroit Downtown Hoedown. I think that is the best even that goes on in Detroit during the summer. There is singing, dancing, and fun for three days. It started in 1983 and is known for the largest country music show in the world. It is hosted by 99.5 WYCD. This event attracts people from all races and ages. There are new performers, local bands, and also famous headliners that perform. On average, the Downtown Hoedown has an attendence of 800,000-1 million people every year. If you have not gone to this event, you should go!!..it is the best!
