For me the quote means that the black people wasnt controlled by the others. The white people beloeve they were controlling the black but the real thing is what is in the black people mind. They still free, they have the power to controlled their minds and to see what is good and what is wrong. The quote says: the only ones i even pretend to please are big white folk, and even those i control more than they control me. This is a power- ser up son and im at the controls

Yo are the controler of you own ideas.

I will talk about sex, drugs and rock and roll. No im joking i will talk about the hippies that were outside in recess . I think their form of persuate the people was not good because they were talking about peace and love in the world and what they need to talk about the legends of rock. It was kind of fun to saw them running singing and dancing

Write a description of a memorable place youve been to. How does it compares with narrator college campus and his memories of that place.

I prefer to talk about any other thing. Or only about the great places ive been to. Last summer i went to Benidorm, Spain. This is a wonderfull place. A lot of things happen there. But the most wonderfull image i had in my head or imagination is the beach. It was like 3 kilometers of pure sand with a lot of light. The people in there also make this place, the perfect place. The buildings are so giant there just towers like 15 floors each o also more than 15 floors. I will hope to visit this place again when i am older because is a place vy recomended to visit at any age you want and i will do it for my children.

Have you ever made a bad impression on someone or been embarassed in front of a guest by something someone else did ( such as you parents) ? How did you handle the situation

Yes!!! This almost happened to me. When i was young in the highschool called colegio ingles i was playing soccer and suddenly one friend had the brilliant idea to put his feet in my feet while i was running. So i felt down in the yard. There was a  lot of crowd so that was worst than if there was only my team. Most of the people that saw my fall start laughing at me. The only thing a can do was to stand up keep running but it wasso embarassing!

What was your reaction to invisible man’s description of the night he was invited to give a speech? What part about the fight or the speech seemed odd to you?

My reaction to invisible mans description of the night he was invited to give the speech was a little bit akward. Because the invisible man tried to give his speech he start “fighting” with a lot group of the black people. Then after all the words, phrases, not in a good mood the invisible man can reach to tell the speech he want to say. It was a really akward lecture. I dont like to read things that are to difficult to understand. But i have to keeo reading this. I dont have an other option.
I hope we read the other book instead of this book.

Write about a time when someone played a trick on you (deceived you). What happened ? How did you react?

During high school there was a giant super final project that if you dont do this project you fail the year. So i was on my house doing my work and a put my paryner to do the other half of the work. We were perfectly organized. I call my friend in the afternoon to asked him if everything is going well with the project and he said yes i almost finish. I was like oh my god this is great my partner is doing all his job. I can focus only on my part. So i start my work at 9:00 pm. It took me like 5 hours to finish this project only the half. At 2:00am i went to sleep. I was dead the next day. So i was searching for my partner to join the two works and give it to the teacher, but the only problem was that my partner never made the project, i was furious. I dont know what to do, i get mad with my partner. So when i give my part to the teacher we recievied 50/100 grade. Thats an awful score. I talk with my teacher and at the end everything gets well. I get my perfect score and my friend get 0! Becausebof his lies.

there was a party last year that i felt so bad because when i entered to the party no body came with me to say hello. This was a terrible feeling. I was sad and it was one of the baddest parties i ever been. But at the same time i felt like i was earning superpowers so i tought i was invisible and i went to all the parts of the house, i also took he car of the father or the owner of the house. everyone tought there was a ghost in the house, there were people running and screaming, the house was a caos. the party was ruined by my fault. everything could be different so i hope the persons learn that when i go to party they must stop and say hello.

I preffer to talk about sokething else.
I will talk about my weekend. On friday i went to the coliseo to see the bullfighters. It was awesome, i was in first line with all my friends and coaches. When “zapata” won the two ears i threw my belt to the rodeo. Don Zapata took my belt and raise it with his hands to the air with one hand and with the other hand he was raising the two ears. If a bull fighter won the two ears it means that it was a great perfomance and he kill the bull making a great perfomance. The least thing a bull fighter can win is just one ear, then the two ears, later the two ears and the tail of the bull.
Then an other bull fighter was hitted by the bull, he felt to the floor as if he was dead but then he stand up and said “yo puedo seguir” -i can do this. So he stand up and kill the bull. For someones that always go to see this kind of things said that it was one of the best rodeos they ever gone in their life.
