Student Protest


For years it has been a hot topic. What can students do and what can they not do? What is
considered going to far? For many this is a question that has no true and legal answer. To
many students, that is. In fact I happen to be one of the many. Now it would be wrong for
me to write this paper and not put in my "two sense". In my opinion this student protest
bullshit has no limit.

Students should not be restricted to what they can and cannot do. They like everyone else
are American citizens and should not have their rights as American citizens stripped from
them when they enter a building teaching them all about the rights they possess. To me
that is the very hypocritical. To teach one thing, and practice another! I mean come on
doesn't that come a cross as more than a tad bit wrong.

There are a number of court cases that cover the matter of student protest. Like always
though I choose not to follow the norm, if you will. I would much rather take you on a
trip through my mind and my opinions.

As for student protest I am all for it. I would take it to the highest degree if it has to
go that far. I see school as a place to come and socialize. The stuff that is taught is
all boring to me. It always seems as if I already know what is going to be said. So what
is the point? To go and get a diploma that in all actuality is nothing but a piece of

    Jimi Hendrix On November 27, 1942, Jimi Hendrix was born as John Allen Hendrix in Washington at Seattle General Hospital. His childhood was not a privileged one, however, he did indulge himself in one particular way: Jimi loved to play the guitar. At first he played an old acoustic, and later a cheap Silvertone electric, which were both strung for a lefty on a right-handed guitar, one of the defining Hendrix traits (Murray 34- 5) . As a teenager, young Jimi listened to the music which affected h

    1960s The 1960s were a time of major political and social change. These changes were primarily fuelled by the youth of the time. Their parents had come from life in both the great depression of the 1930s as well as World War II, and were on a whole more conservative than their children, a fact the younger generation did not like. In the early 60s the electronic media (Television and radio) became an important communication tool, as opposed to the largely print based media of previous decades.

The views of the East made the hippie culture more than just a small group of extremists.

In all of this turmoil however they managed to preserve the customs and traditions of their native land. These slave
