  1. I’m interested to see what you write given a very sensitive issue such as the one you chose, and you clearly stated how exactly you will address the questions with your essays, which makes it clear what to expect from them.

  2. I think each of your thesis statements or questions of (insert category) need to sound more arguable because you have written them as if they can have one thousand counter-examples; for example, “How African Americans impacted our society” sounds like a part of a sentence rather than a complete thought or claim that you would expand in the researched argument major assignment.
