Identity Politics
(in the bag)
A Different Kind
of Gallery....
• A homeless guy comes up and asks you for money.
• An "unpopular" goth girl wants to sit at the "popular" table
(where you’re sitting) for lunch.
• A fur-wearer and an animal rights person meet on the street.
• Students are hassling a guy you know is gay.
• A person in a wheelchair who also has a language disability
comes up and starts talking to you. You can’t understand what
she’s saying.
• A person from an opposing political party comes up and starts
arguing with you about an important issue.
• You overhear someone who looks to be Muslim criticizing lazy,
violent, greedy Americans.
• One of your friends tells a racist joke
What Would You Do?
To Test Your Observational Skills
(aka the CLAIM statement)
What a THESIS should NOT be:
the first sentence in your essay
more than one sentence long
a question

I would like to become a chef when I finish school

Although both chefs and cooks can prepare fine meals, chefs differ from cooks in education, professional commitment, and artistry.
Men are chauvinists.

Our American family structure encourages men to repress their true feelings, leaving them open to physical, psychological, and relationship difficulties.
I enjoy white water rafting.

High schools should consider offering opportunities that challenge the body and spirit and that can transform an adolescent into an adult. Fresh water rafting is one that can accomplish all of these goals.
Steroids, even those legally available, are addictive and should be banned from sports.

Hip hop is the best thing that has happened to music in twenty years.

Many people object to today's violent horror movies.
Now, let's play:
What makes a good thesis statement?
NOW, TIME TO WRITE/REVISIT YOUR THESIS. It'll be awesome. And when you're done and all your evidence is in, you'll feel like this guy:

Statement
To reflect the organizing structure
Despite their high-tech special effects, today's graphically violent horror movies do not convey the creative use of cinematography or the emotional impact that seen in the classic horror films of the 1940s and 50s.
Though many people dismiss hip hop as offensive, hip hop music offers urban youth an important opportunity for artistic expression, and allows them to articulate the poetry of the street.
Steroid abuse
Charles Lawrence's argument on how racist speech is dealt with and how it should be dealt with
is
clearly defined,
is
well supported with examples, and
uses
strong deductive logic.
(note parallel structure)
I agree with Lawrence's idea that changes need to be made to end public discrimination of people of color, changes that, however, should not violate the basic rights of the first amendment.
Young people are particularly vulnerable to criticism from their peers, especially during adolescence. In a recent New York Times article, Francis Keen argues that the internet is home to anonymous users who post hateful messages that can hurt, ruin, or even push a teenager to the point of death. He convinces the reader using to speak up about this important issue, using emotional appeals, examples, and common beliefs that the most Americans can agree with.
Throughout the speech, the author Charles Lawrence III argues based on a mixture of personal, legal, and emotional appeals, about how racist speech is being regulated and not stopped
