The book that I am reading is called Bronx Masquerade. The book is about student who has problems with the way they look and how there life is. In the book the students start to change they think more positive about there selves. So far in the book I met 12 charters. I like the fact that they are starting to think positive about themselves. I cannot relate to anyone.
The character that I like the most in the book is Tanisha because she likes when people look at someone on the inside and not the flesh on the outside. When I am at school all the boys ever talk about is this girl got a donk, They never look at some one on the inside and I know sometimes the girls who get called ugly I know that they just want you to look further beyond. I have a big problem with that because just hate judge mental people. This is a person vs.person
I relate to Lupe because she wants to have a baby at a young age. To me she is stupid because you are to young and you didn't go back to collage yet. The thing that I hate about her is she is stupid she doesn't listen to her self and she is not taking advise from someone who experienced it. The character that I will create is a girl and her name would be JayMary. She would be a positive thinker and missing something in her life but acts like she still has one. She is someone who focus on an early career and makes the right decisions in life. That is my character.

Later that day after my crazy rap I decided to watch my favorite Jamaican dvd all day and perform for my mothers friends that was comming over they would be coming back valentines day to so no body misses any thing. The DVD was all about music and a little bit of Jamaican history it is called heart land reggae. Only one friend came over that friday then another they were disrupting my alone play time in the living room I was mad yea but that was not going to stop me from using a book as a guitar in frount of the tv and dancing. My mother found me to be a very energetic child and a young star.
Valentines day: All I did was play music it was cool reggae and lets not forget my favorite song written by Dream Rock'n that thang love it. It was fun I watch the same DVD and left without a word people applaused me I was a little upset because when I am home I do things that is funny to other people but is normal to my family. My mother went out to party which left me and my dad with my brothers and sisters in the house my dad was in the living room and my big sister Jamela and I went to go watch the movie "SHOTTA" it is an Jamaican movie with Bob Marley's son Kymani Marley. That was so much fun I fell asleep.
After Valentines day: I did the same thing for the rest of the days watch Heart land reggae and make blue berries muffin and bake cake my parents loved it so did I, I love to bake just not cookies. I had fun and thats my weekened.

My bull is white a silver fish in the river,
White, shimmering crane bird on the riverbank,
White fresh milk!
His roar is thunder to the Turkish cannon on the steep shore.
My bull is dark rain cloud in a storm.
He is summer and winter.
Half of him is a dark storm cloud
Half of him is the light sunshine.
His back shines the morning star.
His brow is red, the back of a hornbill.
His forehead is a flag, calling the people from a distance.
He resembles the rainbow.
I will water him at the river,
With my spear I shall drive my enemies.
Let them water their herds at the well;
The river belongs to me and my bull.
Drink, my bull, form the river; I am here to guard you with my spear.

Today in Literacy class I learned about Jim Crow. It means segregation. I think white people had a better chance because they had all rights to do what ever they want. Malcolm X thought that it was not fair so he stood out against it. I don't blame Malcolm at all. Martin Luther King Jr. , Malcolm X, Shirley Chrisholm.
Langston Hughes is a man that wrote poitry about life with Jim Crow. Black people had no right and had no reapect and had to be brave but there was consiquences. The poem that I read in class today is merry go round. Yes people is better off no of days than those days we are happy that those days are finally over. Well working in places to make money and well using the bathrooms lets not forget using bathrooms.
No body likes Jim Crows but the evil white people. Hughes fought against it in poems because haha I know that he hates every little thing about it I do to I don't blame. Chisholm fought against it by trying to be the president and make a change. Malcolm fought vilonce by violince and I think I would of done the same. I don't think so because people would think that they are scared to speak out so what is the point of helping any way.
Where is the Jim Crow section
On this merry-go-round,
Mister, cuase I want to ride?
Down South where I come from
White and colored
Can't sit side by side.
Down South on the train
There's a Jim Crow car.
On the bus we're put in the back--
But there ain't no back
To a merry-go-round!
Where's the horse
For a kid that's black?

Today in class we learned about Malcom X, Malcom X is a man who fought for human rights. He fought vilonce with vilonce. I can compare Malcom to Martin Luther King Jr. because they both fought for the same thing. I would say the diffence between the two is Martin fought in a more pieace full way but that didn't work. Malcom relized and fought fire with fire. The thing what I like about Malcom is he did not take the name that the slave master gave he used X for un known of stolen. I would of done the same thing I like Malcom X a lot.
