My Generation Essay, Research Paper
To every upside there is a downside. The downside to my generation
has a huge impact on my generation. It used to be students bringing books to
school, now a days it?s a different story. Some students are carrying guns and
knives in their book bags to school fearing that someone might start a fight
with them. In some neighborhoods it?s not even safe for kids to play outside
without getting caught in a crossfire. Another big downside to my generation
in my opinion, is racism. Racism has always been in the spotlight of every
generation, but has dramatically increased in my generation. From police
brutality leading to riots in the Rodney King situation to wrongfully accusing
a man for murder, in the O.J. Simpson situation, all because the color of their
skin is different.

safe to say technology has made it easier for society in the 1990?s.
From body piercings to tattoos to whatever trends many movie stars,
atheletes, and musical artists that my generation sees on T.V.,many people in
my generation tries to imitate. My generation for a fact is a very trendy
generation. Everybody in my generation looks like everybody else wearing
nothing but brand names such as Abercrombie, Polo, Nike, Hilfiger, and
whatever other styles they see on T.V.
