  • Were Asians and other non-whites segregated before the 60's?

    I know blacks have always been treated poorly and were segregated before 1960's in America, but what about other races? Did Asians, Muslims, Hispanics and others have laws that kept them out of white spaces?

  • Why do I find art more interesting than nature?

    Best answer: Art is more expressive, while nature is always changing but still sticking to a natural cycle. It sounds like you have an eye for more expressive pieces. Nature isn't for everyone and same with art

  • How does this passage relate to humanity?

    How does this passage relate to humanity?

    Best answer: I don't know the book, but it is obvious that the narrator was seeing himself in the picture, I think this is separate to seeing the relation to humanity. This was his own picture of himself. As far as humanity is concerned, I see a huge page, a huge bird (a self important humanity) in a headlong rush to... show more
    Best answer: I don't know the book, but it is obvious that the narrator was seeing himself in the picture, I think this is separate to seeing the relation to humanity. This was his own picture of himself.

    As far as humanity is concerned, I see a huge page, a huge bird (a self important humanity) in a headlong rush to oblivion. The bird is aware of what its actions will lead to and is scared of the future, wants to turn, but cannot. It will crash into the destiny it made for itself.

    Humans know that they are acting in a way that is not sustainable. Individually we want to turn, to do the right thing. But, because none of us want to be any worse off than others, as a whole we stand a good chance of crashing.


    Update. This is probably the wrong category for your question. You can edit the category to literature, you may get more answers there.

    Update. I see in your comment to Shadowfire where the text comes from and the basic story. There is a correlation in the state of being human (humanity) between the boy and the bird, rather than the state of mankind, which I first considered it to be. The boy has been flung into an unknown (dark) situation that he feels he is not in control of. He feels alone and out of control and that nobody else cares. He feels that he is falling towards an uncertain future and can do nothing about it. As humans, each and every one of us is alone in the headlong fall towards our future.

    Like so much literature, it can be read at different levels. (Well, that is my excuse, Jon).

  • Is Blurp a word and if not can we make it one?

    Best answer: They are a name,

    Blurps are green colored, goggle-wearing fish that first appeared in the various underwater levels of Super Mario World.

    I could become a word if many people used it.

  • Should artists get a pass for having outre views?

    Best answer: Either provenance matters or it does not. If it doesn't matter, then why is Kanye West ever in the news at all? See the catch there? If you're ignoring provenance, you'd need to ignore all stories about him at all, rather than just ignoring "bad" stories. Which you can do quite easily with... show more
    Best answer: Either provenance matters or it does not.

    If it doesn't matter, then why is Kanye West ever in the news at all?

    See the catch there? If you're ignoring provenance, you'd need to ignore all stories about him at all, rather than just ignoring "bad" stories.

    Which you can do quite easily with many artists, some of whom even avoid any public gathering.

    Yet Kanye by choice has never done this.

    One might even argue that much of his "art" is his false public persona, the one where he plays a difficult, daft artist. That his art isn't music, but performance art where he pretends to be a star, in a Peewee Herman manner an actor playing Kanye.

  • Writers/artists, do you ever approach other writers/artists in public spaces?

    Best answer: I think some do it in public spaces hoping that someone will ask. I saw an artist doing some sketchwork, and they had this look about them that they were just hoping someone would come by and take an interest in them. I would think writers probably would prefer to be left alone, but not all of them for sure. I... show more
    Best answer: I think some do it in public spaces hoping that someone will ask. I saw an artist doing some sketchwork, and they had this look about them that they were just hoping someone would come by and take an interest in them. I would think writers probably would prefer to be left alone, but not all of them for sure. I say if they are in a public space, they should expect to have people approach them a certain amount. You are always going to get some rude people, but I wouldn't let them stop you from trying to engage with the world. If someone is rude about it, just keep doing you.

  • How should Rose die in my crossover fanfic Willy Wonka and the Unsinkable Ship?

    Best answer: Why would you want to kill Rose. Didn't she suffer enough? What if she, not the iceberg alone, made the Titanic sink? She had a chocolate craving.

    Best answer: Why would you want to kill Rose. Didn't she suffer enough?
    What if she, not the iceberg alone, made the Titanic sink? She had a chocolate craving. The compartment walls were made of Belgian chocolate. The iceberg punched a few holes into the ship's side just as she had munched a hole in the barrier between compartments. The sea came in. Rose drowned. The water went through the hole she made. The Titanic sank.
