Bottled Up

By Safeer Ahmed

This elevator speech is based on Response 2. Essentially, the entire focus of the piece is on the quote from page 55 of Minor Feelings by Cathy Park Hong, “Oh it’s all in your head“. The speech highlights evidence from two other readings from this semester, The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas and The Wretched of the Earth, to imply that the bottled-up ‘minor’ feelings that minorities in America and around the world illustrated are not imaginary — they are real.

False Happiness

by Varun Raghupathy

My speech was based on my answer to Response 7: Would you walk away from the Omelas? In this speech, I explain my reasoning and compare it to another course material we read, Wretched of the Earth. Using these two sources, I provide backup to my answer; that happiness based off the pain and suffering of others is not true happiness.
