What are some ways to brainstorm when you are stuck on a paper or on a creative writing piece?
For most kinds of writing, it can be helpful to just type or write out ideas first, without thinking about organization. Sometimes writing can be like a puzzle and just like a puzzle, the first step is just to get them on to a board or a table, then rearranging comes later. For visual learners, making a web or a mind map can help. Also, color coding points to categorize them is a good way to get an idea of how the paper or story should be set up.
What is a theme that can be explored in "The Christmas Carol?"
A theme that can be found in The Christmas Carol is redemption. Throughout the story, Scoorge is on a journey of self reflection in order to discover how he can redeem himself and ultimately, avoid a death where everyone will forget about him. The three ghosts could be seen as a supernatural higher power for Scrooge, which would explain why he listens to them and changes his ways so quickly. Each ghost represents a different stage of Scrooge’s life, so if the ghosts are meant to be a higher power, perhaps that concept is meant to imply that there is a presence that is always watching and passing judgement. These higher powers control his fate and so he must learn the lessons they offer in order to reach redemption.

Why is colorblind ideology problematic?
Though the phrase, "I don't see color," seems like an appropriate way to say, "I am not racist," it does more harm than good. By adopting a colorblind ideology, it implies that everyone is the same despite the fact that racism still impacts the everyday experiences of people of color. Seeing or acknowledging someone's race is not the problem, it is the negative perception and reaction to people of color that defines weather or not someone is racist. Acknowledging someone's race is more respectful because it lets people of color know that you understand that their race influences how they will be treated. It also opens up conversations about different cultures and ways those differences can be celebrated.
