In his essay, “12:32pm”, Nathan Centeno discusses the article “Black and Blue” by Garnette Cadogan in a very fluent and descriptive manner. First, he describes the environment in which Cadogan grew up, which was Kingston, Jamaica. He then summarizes the contrast between Jamaica and the United States, and how the U.S. has a large problem with social profiling. He talks about how Cadogan also felt more comfortable in his skin tone, whereas in the U.S. he always felt like he was being judged for being a certain way. After all of this, he then describes how he felt about the article. This gave a more personal feel to the summary, for I got to read about his opinion on the matter. Overall, Nathan wrote a very good response to Cadogan’s writing.
