Me and my partner Cassidy, chose this song because we both enjoy listening to it. It’s a well known song with catchy lyrics.
"Thunderstruck" is the first song on the 1990 AC/DC album The Razor Edge.
‘Thunderstruck’ by AC/DC was released in 1990. It was recorded in January 1990. ‘Thunderstruck’ was written by Angus Young, the lead guitarist Malcolm Young being rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist. The song was produced by Bruce Fairbairn. The song is considered to be hard rock, heavy metal and it is listened to and enjoyed by people of all ages. Thunderstruck was on the charts for 5 weeks in a row, near the time it was released it reached rank 13 by it’s last week. Some people suggested that the song was written about Angus Young’s experience when a plane he was on was struck by lightning. This song is a world wide known song, listened to and it was used in a series of commercials in Australia, this was used in commercials for the Holden Commodore SS Ute.

During the campaign of 2004, Steven Harper now Canada‘s prime minister has named "Thunderstruck" as his favorite song.
"AC/DC" is the abbreviation for "alternating current/direct current". Malcolm and Angus Young came up with the idea for the name when their older sister, Margaret saw the initials "AC/DC" on a sewing machine.

My teacher said it was OK to take Information, as long as we gave a bibliography.
While I give you credit for trying, much of this is obviously plagiarized form other sources -- including Wikipedia.
Your opening should be "My partner Cassidy and I"
And, the whole thing really doesn't make a lot of sense. It's just a listing of sentences, facts and events. What is the point of what you are writing? Is it an essay .. If so, what's the thesis?
EDIT: When you use information from other sources, unless it's "common knowledge" you need to cite it. I'm sure your teacher told you that as well.
Please proof-read my essay for errors?

Impacts of African American Writers on the 21st Century
“So will my page be colored that I write?
Being me, it will not be white.
But it will be
a part of you, instructor.
You are white---
yet a part of me, as I am a part of you.
Sometimes perhaps you don’t want to be a part of me.
Nor do I often want to be a part of you.
But we are, that’s true!
As I learn from you, I guess you learn from me---
although your older--- and white---
and somewhat more free”
(Langston Hughes, Theme for English B).
The United States has been enriched culturally by immigrants from many nations. The Harlem Renaissance was a time during the 1920s and early 1930s in the New York neighborhood of Harlem when African American writers from backgrounds across the cultural spectrum and realm of social thought challenged white paternalism and racism. These artists and intellectuals resisted assimilation and asserted their freedom to express themselves on their own terms. They explored their identities as black Americans and celebrated their culture that emerged from slavery as well as their ties to Africa. African-Americans have made contributions and inspired change in the American lifestyle, principally culturally in the areas of literature, art, foods, music, language, sports and technological innovation. By means of inveteration and dissemination of proclivity through pithy poems, short stories and other works, African American writers engendered a change in social rules such as racial integration, individual rights, and values
---America as a nation has come a long way concerning social rules. It used to be that segregated schools, separate bus seats, bathrooms and drinking fountains were not uncommon. There were racial exclusions in employment and businesses as well as real estate and private memberships. The Cotton Club was a famous night club in New York City that operated during Prohibition. The club featured many of the greatest African American entertainers of the time yet generally denied admission to blacks. African American writers such as Zora Neale Hurston described racial discrimination and its impact of her life in her “How It Feels To Be Colored Me” essay: “Someone is always at my elbow reminding me that I am the granddaughter of slaves. It fails to register depression within me…Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me.” Today, there are no separate schools, neighborhoods, or drinking fountains between whites and African Americans. Racial integration can be seen, for example, on TV with commercials including both white people and African Americans. When white people read the works of the Harlem Renaissance, perhaps they felt chagrin for their treatment toward African Americans.
---African American writers in the Harlem Renaissance represented and responded to the ubiquitous racialized violence and racial oppression in the period between the end of Reconstruction and the beginning of World War I. The fought for equality and freedom through their literature and so social standards have improved in their favor. “We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed” (Martin Luther King, Jr.). Values addressed in literature of the Harlem Renaissance were not only of equality and freedom, but the various strategies of the writers reflected all genres of human evaluation. For instance, Arna Bontemps wrote a short story titled, “A Summer Tragedy,” about an old couple who planned to commit suicide. The story addressed issues and ideas about aging and death, health and disability, measure of the value of life, family, and love. Langston Hughes wrote the poem, “Mother to Son,” an austere poem about the simple reality that life is not easy, and that one must persevere. “When I read great literature, great drama, speeches or sermons, I feel that the human mind has not achieved anything greater than the ability to share feelings and thoughts through language” (James Earl Jones). African American writers used many approaches and writing styles to convey their messages about values.
---Today, African Americans have many more individual and social rights; those changes were indirectly and fundamentally brought about by their writing during the Harlem Renaissance. It influenced and inspired black and white people. African Americans are allowed to enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces and work positions in the government (including attorney general and president). Furthermore, schools and buses are desegregated. African Americans can

Do you think Al Sharpton is a hypocrite to insinuate his dislike of hip-hop violence now?
Wasn't the same Sharpton reported as wanting to lead "an army of Hip Hop artist down to Cuba. The New York Daily News is reporting that Sharpton has been in talks with Interscope record executive Steve Stoute to explore ways that the Hip Hop industry and Castro's Cuba could hook up and take the first steps to ending the long standing embargo that exists between the US and Cuba. According to the reports Sharpton's position is there is no reason that African Americans can not break bread with Cuba..." .Wasn't he and Jesse Jackson fans of "gangster" rappers, like Tupac Shakur? Shakur was in and out of prisons for sexual abuse and yet Sharpton referred to him as "warm, sensitive and intelligent." Looks like Sharpton's counselling of Tupac didn't work. Tupac never got out of his thug life, and was shot dead by probably a competitive rapper of violent songs!!
THE HIP HOP GENERATION
by Rev. Al Sharpton
That speech of his was in 2002. Goes to show that he's just Talk but no action. For verbal violence and abuses in Gansta rap music continues to this day.
Al Sharpton is like those people you see on television that claim to speak to the dead. He says things that the present audience wants to hear. He knows that "hip hop" is garbage, but if he starts to protest and make a publicity stunt out of stopping it, he will lose his supporters in the black community. So he tells the media what they want to hear, then he tells the rappers and promoters that he was only grandstanding and not to worry. Since all of this started about 1 1/2 weeks ago, I have seen no record labels come out and fire any of the producers or rappers. I have seen none of them come out and take a stand against any of it. I have also seen no protests or calls for boycotts against the record labels or rappers. I have seen Sharpton and the other hypocrite Jackson stand outside CBS with signs and cameras, lord don't forget the cameras, and demand CBS fire Imus. It is really a joke. The record labels and "artists" will keep their mouth shut and continue to make vulgar, racist "music" all the while knowing that Sharpton and the black community will let the issue die and white people in America are too afraid to do something about it.
SHOULD I BE A TROPHY WIFE OR KIRI DAVIS?
"Kiri Davis is an African-American filmmaker based in New York City. Her first documentary, done while enrolled at Reel Works Teen Filmmaking, A Girl Like Me (2005) has received significant news coverage."
Kiri Davis is my idol.
I am an artist and I want a high end fashion line
similar to Marc Jacobs that is dedicated to bettering the
image of the black woman, i.e. because go to a black school
(ofcourse, I am black lol) and it is a handful of girls
that you could barely call average at the least.
So it;s a hard slap on the face when you browse the internet and
irrelevant **** pops up like "Im not attracted to black women, they are loud, ugly,blah blah blah....and fat..."
And I am being so truthful, but I wish the media wouldnt display us so ugly and I wanted to change it......on the other hand, I sound crazy saying this, because you see, I am light skinned and people are taken aback when they hear my radical mouth....
My mom says why am I so concerned with bettering the image of black females and I should just go on and marry a rich white guy or
a basketball player......
Should I follow my instinct?
Or be a submissive, delicate woman and be quiet....
This is really hard, because I know for a fact men HATE radical women,
(thats why alot of white men are flocking to Asian girls and Black men are flocking to white girls)
I am suprised at how the media definetly corrupts the image of black girls
If you went to my school, you'd be suprised, they are ALL girly
donning coach bags, peacoats and streaked hair, french manicure, Victoria Secret pink accessories and high heels.
(and this is in Detroit dead in the ghetto and we may play richie rich but we are broke, lol)
So it's really funny how the image of black women
are hard and ghetto, ugly and unfeminine.
Trophy wives have more control than your aware of
