Crime

The case against germline editing Medical technology has advanced incredibly fast over the last century. In the early 20th century physicians prescribed radium contaminated water for the treatment of impotence and arthritis, intentionally collapsing the lungs of a tuberculosis patient to promote healing, treating syphilis with mercury, and giving morphine and mercury to teething babies. At the time these were acceptable treatments that we now know to be extremely hazardous. Today we can edit the very instructions for making a human and this has amazing potential to create humans who are resilient to disease, innately more intelligent, and who may possibly live twice as long. However, like the physicians of one hundred years ago the physicians of today don’t have the benefit of...

Yesterday I watched CNN after not watching the news for a couple of months. I have to take breaks away from those major cable news channels, but now I have something to say regarding Donald Trump and jerks like him. I have to call out Trump’s misogynistic behavior. I don't know why anyone would ride with Donald Trump unless they are like him. Like attracts like, and there’s way too many people still standing by him out of fear. These people don't realize or they don’t care how disrespectful and dishonorable Trump has been behaving for most of his life. He’s not even trying to deceive people. He acts and speaks like an arrogant, egotistical, wealthy, racist, misogynist. Donald Trump told us a while ago that he thinks it’s okay to grab women by the pu$$y. I would like to tell him that...

Slavery and racism are a very conversational topic. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee has racism which is prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior. During the 1900’s they had very big options on which was better blacks or whites. Racism is the result of slavery because slaves are illegal; now people are just racist. Slavery played a marginal role in the history of the Americas. Myth. African slaves were the only remedy for the labor shortages that plagued Europe's New World dominions. Fact about American slavery. The Catholic Church did not tolerate the mixture of Catholicism with traditional African religions. Myth. In Kongo and in Latin America, the Church did tolerate the mixture...

Rebecca L. Perry Covert Racism Stephen Lawrence, Michael Brown, Amadou Daillo, Patrick Dorismond, and so many more are victims of police brutality. All of these African-American men were innocent and unarmed. Lawrence was killed simply for being black. Brown was just a teenager when he was shot to death by a police officer for raising his hands to surrender. Daillo was shot 41 times for trying to enter his own apartment. Dorismond, was hanging out with a friend when an undercover police officer asked where he could get some weed. Soon after that, another officer shot him in the chest. The undercover officer confronted Dorismond because of his appearance. What got me thinking about racism was when I read the novel The Help by Kathryn Stockett. This novel took place...

Racism By Keaton Smith Times were a lot different than they were 200 years ago. We now have more technology, as in cellphones, car, airplanes, but what about the culture? How are things different there? Well, as of the law today everyone is equal, and everyone has an equal opportunity and chance. That hasn’t always been like that, and. Unfortunately, people of the white ethnicity would have people of the black ethnicity as slaves. There were segregated places everywhere and they would get bad treatment from everyone. Now that was only around 50 years ago which is mind boggling when you really think about it. How I stand on racism is pretty simple, I believe that it is very wrong and also that racism is probably never going to leave this planet because of the way people are raised...

Hello, You know who you are and you know what you did. Did hugging me in the office reception not satisfy you enough that you had to shove you hand down my jeans and try to claim what wasn't yours? Did the months of lying to HR and the police make you feel happy? because you managed to get away with just a slap on the wrist. Did the path you lead me down satisfy you? You lead me astray i thought it was normal to be grabbed after you got away with it, I thought it was normal to be raped, assaulted and used as a piece of meat for mens satisfaction. Did the blood dripping down my arms and thighs bring colour to you world? Did my suicide attempt finally help you breath? I have been giving a second chance and I am not letting you take that away from me, I am not letting...

Learning I'm an empath. This explains so much. What it doesn't explain is how after 23 years of you constantly invading my heart, soul, mind, the 5 years total of you invading my body, I realized something. I was manipulated by you. Your feelings became mine, I squashed my doubts and swallowed my "I'm not ready yet," just to make you "happy." That turned into 3 years of unprotected exploitation. Only God had my back, those things you did to me you did with others... Four years ago, I finally said, "no." I was ready to finally walk away, I had closure. Two years prior, I re-entered into a relationship with you, AGAIN, knowing you were not really mine. Your shiny, steel band winking on that finger, your wife next to you, approving, saying she enjoyed the "break" and that he wouldn't...

“I Wish You to Live Forever” On December 11, 2018 on the corner of Ave. Y and West 2nd Street in Gravesend, Brooklyn, NY,11223 at approx 8 am In my opinion, you performed, by far, the most reckless and cowardice act any human can do to another. You stole from teenage-twin-boys, their only parent. Their rock. Their everything in life. All the family and friends who will never hear that laugh again. That laugh we know and love, and how she smiled no matter how bad life was to her. That angel's name is Francine LaBarbara. You mauled her with your vehicle to the degree, that one witness said, at first he thought it was a garbage bag in the street. Then he saw her beautiful hand and hair. Without even looking back, you fled like the coward you are. You had the One chance to...

Dear Herman, I almost never say your name out loud. Last I heard, a couple of weeks ago, you were sick and the doctors don't think you are going to make it. I was happy when I heard this because I wanted nothing more than for you to lie in the grave you dug for yourself as your demons dragged you to hell, but then I felt bad, but you don't get to make me feel bad anymore. You did horrible unspeakable things to me. You entered my body and ruined my soul for years. I can still hear the jingle of your belt sometimes or some days I catch a whiff of your cologne. You know what I remember most, my knees popped all the time probably from the amount of time I spent on them thanks to your perverted fantasies. I was a kid, I was confused and I didn't know what to do. I held this rage...

It's hard when your constantly living in fear. Fear after being tortured. Fear after being raped. For eight months I have had no justice. No life. No happiness. You stole my freedom, my voice. But you didn't steal my soul. You raped my body not my loving soul. You may run from this forever, but you have to go on living with the guilt of what you done to an innocent woman who did nothing but care for you. It's a joke to you now because the police have the inability to find you Antony. I still think of when it happend; i'll never forget. It will haunt me till the day I die, the fear I felt and experienced is one no twenty year old woman should feel. Its safe to say you physiologically damaged me to the point where I am numb in everyday life. I never feel happiness anymore but i'm...
