Incoming 1Ls / Re: Law School Reading Lists
« on: May 27, 2007, 11:07:21 PM »
The list is titled "Law school Reading lists." Personally I dont give a flying flip about gunners and what people think of them. I was just generally asking the question whether people were going to read the list of materials on their lists. My law school has sent a list contianing information to read about legal research and writing, how to surivie the first year, american history and the law, law fiction, and movies. It really seemed like overkill with more than 40 items to look over, but hey thats just me. However, I do not want to fall behind everyone in the class if it seems a good percentage of people will read them. Since I see that you are trying to discourage me from reading them, I will throughly enjoy each and every last movie, book, and law guide that was suggested. If that makes me  a gunner then I happily accept the title.

Thats the thing--it is more acceptable for women. I think with guys, if we have cornrows or something peope just respond differently. I dont know the environment of federal agencies like the USDOJ or SEC, but I can only imagine that these are straight-laced, conservative places. Coming from a banking town I can pretty much attest to anything outside the normal look lis frowned upon, at least for guys, but who knows I am trying to eventually get to the Chocolate City so maybe I will grow locs like I have wanted after a couple of years of practice.

Troy brings up a good question. Is race defined by what others percieve you as or what you define yourself as? I know African-Americans at my job who are very very light and say thay are African-American, but most blacks say they are white or try to convince them they are white even when they show them pictures of their black father or mother.

As I said before--whatever. I dont have time to engage in a full blown discussion about what is wrong with our community, enough books have already been written on the subject. I never said Obama was a sell-out at all.

My wife, two year old daughter, and I are moving from Charlotte,NC to Morgantown, WV. The U-Haul truck with a tow package for my jeep costs $400.

Isn't Obama's book like a bestseller? Everytime it is mentioned in the media the first thing that is said at least here in Charlotte, NC is that he has a biracial background composed of an African father and Midwestern white mother. The point I was making about the cleanliness and ability to articulate is that most people including minorites in this country believe that these two characteristics are inextricably tied to the professional, white image. The caucasian side of Obama's heritage is what ultimately sets him apart from former African-American presidential hopefuls who were just as qualified if not more, Sen. Carol...and Jesse Jackson. Okay maybe just the senator but you get my point.

Engagement rings have become so outdated in the world we live in. I could understand a woman wanting the biggest diamond or ring she could get back in the 50's when the social expectations of women were to be housewifes, but in today's society where women make there own money and sometimes make more than their husband, why should he go broke trying to impress you? Whatever happened to falling in love with a brother with a buspass? Yeah, I guess the best things in life, like love, are not free.
