I think there is a lot to be concerned with here. One of my main concerns is that the end-goal is often entertainment, to present ideas, events, and social issues as a means to providing entertainment and boosting the number of people tuned into the program. Humor is a powerful tool of engagement and can be used very effectively to persuade an audience one way or another. But, if the focus is too heavy on simply creating entertainment, the content may begin to lack or even become subordinant to the humor.

I am not sure that adding more guns to the issue makes the schools any safer. I don’t know how schools could ensure that teachers are accurately trained to shoot and what methods are available to reduce the risk of gun accidents within the school that I see only a risk of increasing by adding guns to the situation. I also see a problem with arming teachers by force, the second ammendment is something citizens can opt into and should not be forced upon them. That would be a gross overstep of boundaries for the government to mandate that responsibility onto teachers. If there was a way for teachers to opt-in for a verification process, training, and maybe a specific license ro carry in school, that would be something I may be interested in.

This is a very interesting topic. Thank you for posting! I agree. This is a dangerous place to be given our nation’s history with forced and unpaid labor. It seems that there is an incessant need for it and we just shift continually in methods to fulfill the need. I think the option to work could be a nice way to earn money and have a routine/schedule, but that work needs to be paid and in a fair manner.

I think a helpful distinction to make would be the difference between structural racism and predjudice. What many people now call “reverse racism” may really be examples of bias or predjudice, but come nowhere near the structural level of discrimination and violence that minority populations have faced in America. To label something as racist should mean that it continues and upholds a pattern of structural violence, not an individual bias or thought.
