Fall 2009: MAS 10A Essay #5 Dear Editor, I recently attended a speech given by Frederick Douglass and have been inspired to speak up myself. I can no longer sit idly by while slaves in our community are treated unjustly. For too long we have lived quietly in this country and have allowed clouded judgments to cast our future. I for one will no longer keep quiet, no matter the consequence. I can no longer accept the mistreatment of people for financial gain’s sake. Americans must break the traditions of hate and move forward to a progressive future, where all people are truly created equal. We cannot continue to treat fellow human beings as unequal. I would like to take this opportunity to share with our community the reasons why it is time for a drastic change in our nation. As Douglass states in his speech, and as I was recently told in lecture, there are currently 72 different crimes in which a black person can be sentenced to death in Virginia. Only two of those are punishable by death if a white person commits the same crime (Barrera, October 2009).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
