  1. This article illustrates the fact that newly arrived immigrants are the best educated ever.

Later on in the article, it explains gaps in the number of immigrants who have completed high school and how Asian immigrants being a large portion of the educated immigrants, are on the rise.
  2. The information presented in this article are came from Pew Research tabulations of the U.S. decennial census. Basically the census of the last five years and The American community survey. I chose this article because it was interesting and because this post was about educational statistics of the people in our country.
  3. Do you think it matters that the immigrants are more likely to have college degrees in “our country” than the people who where born here?

BLOG 1: All lives matter

August 31, 2015 1 comment

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Dammit people, if all lives truly mattered we wouldn’t have to say Black Lives Matter! <a href=””>#BlackLivesMatter</a></p>— opal tometi (@opalayo) <a href=”″>August 31, 2015</a></blockquote> //

I’m not sure how to properly embed the tweet- the link is above but it reads “Dammit people, if all lives truly mattered we wouldn’t have to say Black Lives Matter!

My article is about people believing that people who promote the Black Lives Matter campaign are a hate group. Individuals argue that with the rioting and protest promoting this cause this group of people promote hate and violence. I chose this topic because being from the St. Louis/Ferguson area i witnessed this topic hits really close to home and I believe this movement started in my neighborhood so i find it very interesting researching others opinions

The article is from Hassleback partnered with Fox news. The tweet i mentioned is from a girl named Opia and I referenced it because i agree with it and it received 87 retweets and 113 favorites.

Would you consider Black Lives Matter a hate group? if so, what actions do you deem appropriate to change the image?
