    An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

    If you are going to write a paper on the above prompt, there is much freedom to choose a topic. I would say that you should choose a topic that most interests you. After you choose a topic you will need to formulate a thesis statement. A good thesis statement should have good supporting evidence. Let me offer an example.

    If you are going to write on racial relations, then you would need to have a thesis that surrounds race. It can be something as simple as racism still exists in an enlightened country in America. To make this into a successful thesis, you would need good supporting evidence. In other words, why do you think this? At this point, you may say that there is a big discrepancy in college admissions, uneven pay scale in the work place, and biases in the media. Finally, a great thesis also is able to anticipate counter-arguments and address them.
