Which College Course should I take?
I need about 12 credit hours, but i'm deciding on taking one of these two classes (PHYC 110 - Introduction to Applied Physics) or (AFST 453 - African American Art) These two classes fit my schedule but I'm not sure which one to take. My major is pre-dental. I do need 2 semesters of physics, but people do fine without introductory class right? AFST I'm taking to earn 3 credit hours. Other classes were closed or on waitlist. FYI I'm in my sophmore year in college
For Physics helps me prepare for (PHYC 151 - General Physics) but it's early and the problem is me and my girlfriend car pool. The class is at 7:35 and my girlfriend class is at 9:00. She said she wouldn't mind, but I know it will eventually be a hassle.
For AFST 453 - African American Art, the only thing holding me back is the 400 level course. There aren't any prerequisite but, I was wondering if it may be difficult. The description states, "This class provides an overview of African American artists and contextualizes their creativity within the wider framework of U.S. art. What, for example, are the benefits and pitfalls of assigning race to any creative practice? "
Any ideas would help
Take the physics course. It is more allied to your future./
Do people still appreciate the ART of boxing? or, Do they judge on a boxer's lifestyle/personality?
I think people have lost the love for the art of boxing. And i say this because their is so much hate aimed at Floyd Mayweather Jr. I have heard so called "civilized", "boxing fans" say some of the most hateful, ignorant, and racist things. People this is boxing. And it goes both ways, me being a African American i was upset when B-Hop said"i will never lose to a white boy." whether you're trying to sell tickets or not racism is unacceptable. Anyway back to the issue at hand. DO PEOPLE STILL APPRECIATE THE ART AND THE ARTISTS? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Zpth-ic6Uw&feature=related
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JlQHYK05I4 What do you think? unbiased answers only please.
No such thing as an unbiased answer. There have always been 2 types of boxing fans: fans of the art/science and fans of the violence. So yes, folks still do appreciate it, but it will never be more than 25% of boxing fans. Most just want to enjoy watching someone getting hurt, and that is the goal of a boxing match.

There will always be ignorant red necks and blind minded idiots
on the planet .
Those who judge you are losers . We are suppose to have the
freedom to think and act as we want , as long as it does not
physically hurt someone else .
Just because people call you names , does not mean that it is true .
What is the underlying cause of an idea or an invention and why was that certain person meant to invent it?
I know that musicians come up with ideas for songs, artists come up with ideas for famous paintings, architects come up with famous building structures. Tupac the rapper came up with so many great hits. Pablo Picaso was in the art movement of cubism. Alexander Grahm Bell invented the telephone. These are just random examples. But how did these creators get their ideas? Why was it meant for them to create that certain song or painting and not meant for someone else? What if another rapper was intended to write a song that Tupac wrote, but Tupac never existed. How did someone know there was going to be a rapper named Tupac? How did someone know there was going to be a painter like pablo picasso? How did we know Cubism was a European art movemnent, what if it was meant to be African art. What if Martin Luther King Jr. invented the Telephone, and Alexander Grahm Belle was a black civil rights leader. All these are just examples, but I was just randomly thinking how these people got their ideas. I know it's their lifestyle and whatever interests them to come up with the things they create, but it seems like someone on the outside helps to make a certain person come up with an idea. Something triggers all these ideas that are intended for the right individual. But, why and how? For all I know I could have meant to be Tupac or I could have been born Pablo Picasso and lived in a different time. How do all these ideas and creators fall in place? What if you who answered this question should have been the one to ask this question.
Some people just have a creative mind. Some people had an impact on their lives that made them do something important. It's really human nature. Look at your everyday life. Plus having a high IQ helps.
Is Mainstream Hip-Hop the biggest problem facing young people today?
I feel that mainstream rap/hip hop music is extremely detrimental to youth and urban culture today, especially to African-American youth. I believe this because this music impresses a culture of crime and violence onto todays teenagers, one which follows them well into their adult lives. It affects African-American the most, because they can so easily identify with mainstream artists (or at least with the false personas given these artists by their labels and comanies like clear-channel). The problem is that instead of discouraging these criminal activities, mainstream hip-hop glorifies things like prostitution, murder, drug smuggling, etc. I believe that mainstream hip-hop is the biggest obstacle facing black empowerment. This is not to say that I dislike the art-form, of course, because there are many independant and "non-radio and MTV" artists that I enjoy. What do you think?
Clarification: My point was not to argue that hip-hop causes crime, only that it glorifies it and in this way is detrimental to a cause of empowerment. Gillie the KOP, good point regarding education, but I think that mainstream hip-hop discourages education, and even aspiration to that effect. Of course all music has it's problems, like how mainstream country spawned a generation of brain-dead rednecks, but I didn't include them because the don't pertain to my question.
Nina hits it right on the head. A great deal of the artists in mainstream hip hop are being detrimental to the growth of the youth of today. But it's not like they're the only ones doing it. If we're going to call them out, then please also call out Hollywood for their movies and TV shows and Silicon Valley for their video games.
