A society with a large gap

Haruyo Morikuni
Frederick Douglass, Jose Yglesius and Frankie Mae had kind of same situation such as under the struggling their life. Frederick Douglass was born a slave, but could learn to read and write even against a low, and never gave up the American African’s freedom. Jose Yglesius was the exiles and emigres cigarmakers in the Hispanic family. Frankie Mae was an African American girl who dreamed to go to school and get an education, but when she realized that an educated African American had no power, she gave up. Those three all wanted to get an education, but they were under the difficult circumstance depend on the time period and location in those days.
Now days, there are so many information and media tools like computer, cell phones, the internet, etc. It seems to be fair for everyone, but it’s not fair depending on an environment, and the Digital Divide appears in 21st century as the civil liberties issue. It’s the same situation with the Frederick Douglass, Jose Yglesius and Frankie Mae under, because we are under the difficult circumstance depend on the generation and the location now days. The age who are 60s and 70s are struggle to catch up the knowledge of how to use those tools, but It’s sometimes hard for them to handle it, so some of them give up in the middle. Moreover, the Digital Divide appears dependent on the location they live. The digital divide refers to the gap between those who have access to technology and those who do not. The digital divide will bring a society with a large gap between rich and poor.

  1. I think I agree with your post, however your first outside source denies that the digital divide even exists, and I think you are saying that it causes a gap between the rich and the poor. It’s great to bring in a dissenting view, but only if you help contextualize it for your readers.

    It’s helpful to use quotes from your outside source to build your arguments.
