Their stylistic tics are nonsensical fluff: 'Like ... Like ... Like ...,' sentences punctuated with 'N Stuff,' mindless clich├ęs such as 'Omigod!' and 'Awesome.'

One day I was getting a haircut at the barbershop across the street from my school, one of my first graders came inside and he plopped down on the couch. He was staring out the window, looking bored.

Barbershops are, like, a whole new adventure, they have black men around them giving them directions and encouraging them to do something positive. I think that this is essential, and it will create memories for them that will empower them.

Figures in black balaclavas assist in the humiliation. With mistress-of-stunts Katie Mitchell directing, we have, from the start, ambient noise, honking klaxons, cage doors clanking, fizzing strip-lights -- no cliche is spared.

I did it so people will start to see that girls are not a distraction and to stop teaching young men that it is an acceptable excuse to be distracted from their education, i found there was no correlation between any of the photos that were in dress code or out of dress code. So I proved clothes that were dress code violations were no more distracting.
