There's no real community on the internet.

Alexie's "I don't believe in heroes; I believe in heroic ideas." Yes!
My class was assigned The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian to read for banned book week, and I fell in love with it! I loved Junior's relationship with Rowdy so much!

closed captions??

What he says at around 12:00 about losing community on the Internet is so true. I'm convinced that all our screen time has contributed to the suspicion of "the other" which has led to what a social dichotomy we're in right now.

No one who has ever been poor would ever use the phrase "selling out"-absolutely love that $#it!

This guy looks more European than Native American. In my grandmother's country they would just call him "blanco/blan".
Kenny Khalil (2 years ago)
He look chico as hell.

+KimbayesStephenno95 I think he looks Native American. He reminds me of some of my uncles in Alaska.
Flower Power 2016 (3 years ago)
Its actually no big deal. The US is a multicultural society and you really wouldn't stand out if English is your main language. Looking mixed is actually considered the most beautiful now a days and a lot of women want mixed children.
Valentin Allogeno (3 years ago)
I agree with that. I've heard him talk elsewhere about looking ethnically ambiguous and being able to quickly shift between groups in a single place. Personally I can relate a lot to that, and although it can definitely be alienating, in the end I think it's sort of a strength to be and look mixed.
Flower Power 2016 (3 years ago)
No, she speaks French and Creole. I'm just pointing out that he could easily pass for European.

I'm watching and reading about Sherman for my English 316 class and my first though was I was going to read about boring indian folk tails, but really he was a great author that made me want to research and read more of what he writes!

I loved how he compares CDs with tapes, as if to say burning CDs is a contemporary thing. Hhahaha Please keep writing Junior!
rockyraaacoon (5 years ago)
Ah, I love that response on "heroic ideas". Very funny and poetic writer :D
