Indian, Arabian, Spanish, Korean, anything you can name its there. People with religion of all kinds, Christians, Jews,Hindus, Muslim . Now,if you tour around the city, you will very rarely find that these different races live mixed together with one another. People wonder why? Many people like to be within their own niche, where it has respectable has traditionally been throughout history, especially now in the harsh and cruel society that we are all associated with, but through these times there are those brave individuals who decide to speak out and fight against all the tension and fighting. Racism , hate crimes, protests, all of these horrific things that happen everyday. Why? What does that do for you? We live in the only country in the world where, people have freedom to express themselves how they please. There's nothing that can be done to stop it. So why would people try to stop it? Because people are scared. Of others based on previous historical events. For instance Muslims are blamed for the attacks on september 11th 2001, Russians are looked at as spy's based off of the cold war, Mexicans are looked at as illegal citizens whom just sell drugs to make a living, Koreans are looked at as crazy communists because of world war two. Theres thousands of other similar cases. The point here is every different backround has a negative rep to their names. But now, time for the ultimate question of this whole essay, Does a persons ethnicity and background decide whether they are a good person or bad person?

...An essay has been defined in a variety of ways. One definition is a "prose composition with a focused subject of discussion" or a "long, systematic discourse".[1] It is difficult to define the genre into which essays fall. Aldous Huxley, a leading essayist, gives guidance on the subject.[2] He notes that "the essay is a literary device for saying almost everything about almost anything", and adds that "by tradition, almost by definition, the essay is a short piece". Furthermore, Huxley argues that "essays belong to a literary species whose extreme variability can be studied most effectively within a three-poled frame of reference". These three poles (or worlds in which the essay may exist) are: The personal and the autobiographical: The essayists that feel most comfortable in this pole "write fragments of reflective autobiography and look at the world through the keyhole of anecdote and description". The objective, the factual, and the concrete-particular: The essayists that write from this pole "do not speak directly of themselves, but turn their attention outward to some literary or scientific or political theme. Their art consists on setting forth, passing judgement upon, and drawing general conclusions from the relevant data". The abstract-universal: In this pole "we find those essayists who do their work in the world of high abstractions", who are never personal and who seldom mention the particular facts of experience. Huxley adds that "the most richly satisfying......

...An essay is usually a short piece of writing. It is often written from an author's personal point of view. Essays can be literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. The definition of an essay is vague, overlapping with those of an article and a short story. Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g. Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population provide counterexamples. It is very difficult to define the genre into which essays fall. Aldous Huxley, a leading essayist, gives guidance on the subject: Like the novel, the essay is a literary Abstract This article will examine the reasons why it is important both linguistically and psychologically to build a vocabulary quickly when learning a foreign language.
