Growing up in a community where the majority of the people are a certain race—one not of your own—can be very difficult. In some scenarios, being a different race from the community isn't really something pointed out, however in others, people sometimes make it known that your background is not the same as theirs. In the documentary Somewhere Between (Goldstein Knowlton, 2011), a film about four different girls and how their lives have been after being adopted in the U.S. because of China’s “One Child Policy”, being identified solely by your race in a neighborhood is pretty common. The documentary highlights many of the ways that race was the first, if not the only, thing some people saw when looking at an Asian girl in a White community.

Marijuana is a classic drug that everyone knows is illegal to use. However, teens still do. Ritalin (methylphenidate) is a prescription medication used to treat ADHD, ADD, and narcolepsy. This drug belongs to a category of central nervous stimulants, and acts to help focus one’s attention and concentration solely on a specific task to be done. Sounds pretty good right? Ritalin is legal, serves a legit purpose, and is prescribed for actual diseases/conditions - unlike the stereotypes of marijuana. Some people feel that Ritalin is so good - it should be passed out in schools for those kids that are "just too out of control". This article discusses the use of Ritalin on elementary/middle school kids, as well as the similarities/differences about marijuana and Ritalin.

For my blog research assignment, I chose an article that had to do with the negative stigma of tattooing. Tattoo recipients have been looked at by many people in society as socially deviant because they are going against the norms by cosmetically adding to their natural body. Tattooing, according to this article, is seen as negative behavior and is done by non-conformists. The article indicates that individuals get tattoos for a number of reasons including religious self-expression and having a feeling of power over one’s self and reflect self-concept.

As said in the article written by Jim Reed, journalist for the BBC, many homeless teenagers’ cases are not being well administrated in England. The BBC Newsnight found out that on a total of 208 local councils, 119 of them admitted to have placed many teens in bed and breakfast hotels throughout the last year. In fact, 871 sixteen and seventeen year olds had to inhabit one of these inappropriate accommodations – some of them on a long term basis, while social services departments were being in charge of 525 young-adults.
