In the non fiction article by Zeba Khan she conveys her supposition that identity is something one chooses rather than something based upon societal perception by using sarcasm, and using stereotypes to back up her ideas. By using stereotypes to help combine claims with facts this helps her exhibit her ideas. To first begin the topic,Stereotypes present a good position for an argument by representing a common struggle between the reader and author.many people have been put under a situation where they were portrayed as a different image because of an assumption that someone made. This helps connect the reader with the author to share similar connections which in turn helps convey the author’s ideas more thoroughly to the reader. For instance
There are many stigmas attached to receiving public assistance. People who depend on welfare to survive are often seen to use welfare because of “their laziness, drug use, lack of human capital, personal choice, or other personal shortcomings or irresponsible behavior.” The mothers in the study conducted by Seccombe, James, and Walters found that women receiving public assistance were all too aware of these stigma. These women understood that other people looked at them differently when they found out that they were on welfare. The surprising finding in this study, however, is that while individual women saw themselves as victims of a system, they stigmatized other women on public assistance under the same stereotypes that they were subjected to by others.
This evidence supports the the claim that prejudice is an integral component in both stories by showcasing how unsubstantiated claims can often become reasons to act upon prejudice, that one may feel towards others, frequently to protect one's
One would think prejudice is a thing of the past. Unfortunately, that is not the case, prejudice is still a common factor in todays society. Vincent N. Parrillo’s essay “Causes of Prejudice,” helped me to understand how we are affected not just psychologically but in a sociological way as well, as John A. Camacho explains in his A Few Bad Apples opinion piece published in the Pacific Daily News. Both forms of prejudice are continued to be explained through Stud Turkel’s “C.P Ellis,” he gives us an understanding of psychological and sociological prejudice through C.P Ellis’own experiences. This furthers our understanding on how we can be affected by both psychological and sociological prejudices.
“We all decry prejudice, yet are all prejudiced,” said Herbert Spencer, a famous philosopher. Prejudice is frequent everywhere and difficult to stop. It is very difficult to destroy something in someone’s mind, and it will inevitably be expressed through various methods with different degrees of subtlety. Any expression of this can hurt. Subsequently, in Farewell to Manzanar by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston and James D. Houston, the main theme is that prejudice is everywhere, and can be of varying degrees.
Those stigmatised experience stereotypical discriminative behaviour on a daily basis, they
Breaking Through: Concrete Ceilings Created by Generational Problems and Maintained By Stigma and Poverty! Topic #1 Political philosopher Karl Marx famously said that “[People] make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given and transmitted from the past.” In other words, though we create our own lives, our choices and options are affected by the circumstances that we are born into.

The Cambridge Dictionary considers Culture as "the way of life, especially the general customs and beliefs, of a particular group of people at a particular time". According to this, it can be said that culture is responsible for guiding society, under certain parameters, rules and customs that must be respected and shared among individuals in the same society; thus, there is no culture without being in a society; in the same way, there is no society without individuals interacting with each other. The coexistence in society has long been affected by two disintegrating elements called Prejudice and Racism, both with a high cultural content that have gradually deteriorated the development of the modern society. Prejudice has become one of the most common evils within modern society; people often have attitudes and beliefs, usually negative that tend to hurt others. It is
The stigma that is attached with mental health can cause patients to feel hopeless, refuse to seek help, and experience low-levels of quality life (Livingston, Tugwell, Korf-Uzan, Cianfront & Coniglio 2012). Social media makes it more accessible to acquire knowledge towards issues that arise globally, but it can also create backlash and target specific individuals in a negative light. As stated prior, 70% of a sample expressed that portrays of individuals with mental illnesses often are offensive (Aguiniga et al. 2016). In addition, social media and films characterize people with mental health issues as “the other”, that furthers stigmatizes mental health and sets a tone of fear.
