Black History Month

Ray Charles was famous for his music. He was born September 23, 1930 in Albany, Georgia. Charles died on June 10, 2004 at age 73 in Beverly Hills, California. Charles was important to a lot of people and lots were devastated when he died. Enough focusing on the bad side of his life. Ray Charles played everything but he focused on vocals, pianos, and key boards. He started his career in 1947 and it lasted until 2004 which is really long compared to the people that make music now a days. Genres he was proficient in were  R&B, soul, blues, gospel, country, jazz, pop, rock and roll. I never really knew him because I have never really heard him officially but I do know him from my parents. My parents occasionally but him on the intercom/radio around are house just to play some good old classic music and from what I heard it is not that bad to be honest with you. I would definitely recommend it for you to listen to on your free time. Ray Charles also had a nickname which was “Brother Ray” or if you wanted to call him something else it would be “The Genius” which very well explains him and his music.

Social Issue Topic

In recent discussions of Curfews for Teenagers, a controversial issue has been whether curfews should be lasting longer or curfews should stay the same.  On the one hand, some argue that keeping curfews the same will keep kids under control.  From this perspective, studies have found that kids become more depressed because they want to go out to calm down and lose stuff on their mind. On the other hand, however, others argue that curfews should be extended to help teens out both mentally and physically. In the words of one of this views main supporters, “If you are out studying, working, volunteering, or participating in an extracurricular activity, it would probably be reasonable to ask your parents to extend your curfew for these activities.” (Welsh 1). According to this view, Welsh is trying to explain that having a longer curfew doesn’t exactly mean you’re out to do bad things it just means you have responsibilities that teenagers are starting to take care of just like adults. In sum, then, the issue is whether teenagers should be able to go out for a longer period of time for their curfew or stay home and stick with the curfew that their legal guardian gives the teen/kid no acceptions. My own view is that teenagers should be able to stay out for a extended amount of time though I concede that there are some pros to keeping teens inside with curfews, I still maintain that kids and teenagers should still have a later curfew than they have now. For example, kids should be able to escape their problems if needed to do so or just go out if they have something really important to be needed to be taken care of. Although some might object that letting teenagers stay out later than they should be I reply that We all need to give it a chance before we assume something that we need to try for everyone’s sake. The issue is important because many teenagers are being affected around the world by not having a later curfew than what they have now, sometimes people just need a break from their problems.

Question’s:

Do you think parents or law enforcers should be able to let kids roam around for a extra amount of time?

If not why would you keep kids/teenagers at home instead of letting them go for a extra amount of time?
