Eminem - 943 words
For my research paper, I chose to write about Marshall Mathers. I chose to write about him because he is the best young rapper, and I like how he doesnt care what happens, he just goes with it. He isnt a very good role model, but he is funny, and couldnt care less what anybody says about him. He had a rough childhood that reflects to now, and makes great records and songs that describe his life and what has happened during it.

Rhetorical Analysis Essay - 1,079 words
Causal Argument: Does Violence In The Media Affect Children? Violence is found all around us in the media. Parents are becoming worried about what their children are exposed to.

Violence In The Media - 1,534 words
One of the hottest and most controversial topics in America today is violence in the media. Violence is everywhere in the media nowadays, there is no denying that. Whether it be movies, television, video games, or music, there will always be violence, but blaming the media is not the answer.

Violence in the media was always a hot issue, but never more so than last year. On April 20, 1999, two students at Columbine High School, Dylan Kleb ...

Against Music Censorship - 1,115 words
Music censorship has been a major problem plaguing America for over fifty years. In 1957, Elvis Pressley was only allowed to be filmed from the waist up on the Ed Sullivan show (Nuzum 1). Plenty of controversy has taken places between then and now, but more recently it has become much more prominent in the media, and people and organizations are beginning to actually take a stand. For example, Island Records (owned by Disney) dropped the Insane Clown Posse just after their release of The Great Milenko and MTV actually refused to play Madonnas video for Justify My Love because it was considered too sexually explicit (Nuzum 1). Music content is just one of the many issues that puts the First A ...

A Protest To The Music Of Eminem, The Real Slim Shady - 301 words
WILL THE REAL SLIM SHADY PLEASE SHUT UP, by Ashley Nelson is a powerful article about the influence music can have on people. Nelson makes some excellent points on this controversial subject and is correct in stating that music does influence actions. Music can have tremendous effects on listeners, especially those who are easily influenced. One argument in the rappers defense was; his sadistic desires are not those of Marshall Mathers (Eminem), rather they are those of his alter ego known as Slim Shady. To some he is considered a divided man. Should it really matter which side of him is singing about rapping and killing women? The point is it doesnt matter who is singing about it; the only ...
