We went to a town called Frascati. It is not a very popular tourist destination, so not many locals knew English. When we decided to have lunch at a local stop to taste Frascati’s Olive oil and bread, learning Italian Hand gestures during cultural mentoring really came handy for ordering food. The waiter greeted us in Italian. When none of us replied, he realized that we did not understand Italian.
Even if my life depended on eating spicy food, I would rather die. My boyfriend is Italian and the first time I went to their house for dinner they made a bunch of spicy Mexican food for dinner. I didn’t want to be rude, so I just faked a smile and pretended to enjoy the meal even though I was dying on the inside. My first impression of them was that they are shallow, but then I realized I wasn’t any better till I took my trip to Mexico. Over time and getting to know me they no longer follow the typical stereotype and try to feed me with spicy
One of the points that stood out the most to me was that even though not everyone is necessarily a racist person, everyone inherently holds prejudices. Although I’d like to believe that I am inclusive and not discriminatory, the reality is that I am still prejudiced and that I still discriminate others based on their appearance even though I don’t show it blatantly. Growing up in an Asian household, my parents taught me to be careful of certain
Ethnicity is a group or an individual’s conception of cultural identity and refers to cultural separation between and within societies. “Ethnicity is often woven into our self-identification, especially in the United States. Most Americans are a compilation of many nationalities, each with its own cultural traditions”. Ethnic constraints are seen in many environments and can eventually lead to negative stereotypes that are objectionable. “There are ethnic groups with great internal cultural variation, and there are clear boundaries between ethnic groups whose mutual cultural differences are difficult to spot”.
Bias is preference or prejudice in favor of or against a view, a thing, a person, or group compared with another. Biases can be learned implicitly within cultural contexts. Cultural bias can make you view others in a negative way because you have certain opinions on how they act or what they do. They can also make you view certain parts of the world in a negative way because of how they live and what they eat in their countries. As I previously mentioned about one
People may develop biases toward or against an individual, an ethnic group, a nation, a religion, a social class, a political party, theoretical paradigms and ideologies within academic domains, or a species. Biased means one-sided, lacking a neutral viewpoint, or not having an open mind. Bias can come in many forms and is related to prejudice and intuition. Bias on outgroups: When some individuals are categorized as being part of one group, they are considered part of the "ingroup"; others are considered to be part of the "outgroup" Members of the outgroup are viewed as less similar and, as a result “ingroups” may have biases against them. Thus, the outgroup bias includes negative categorizations, feelings, or ideas about people who are not part of our ingroup.
People don’t need to fit a mold that other people think they should fit. In this essay, I will argue that every culture has its preferred description of human distinction, but there is no ideal title to their racial background. The United States is known for its multicultural abundance. But to that, there are a lot of disputes concerning the proper titles to those who share more than one heritage background. The main topic that most multiracial people face is not properly fitting into their categorized groups or fulfilling into it.
Freedom of assembly has to be balanced with other people’s right if it causes problem in public order. When people think freedom of assembly, it’s always have to do with people protesting which causes violence. But they plea that’s peaceful protest when it’s not. People should have freedom to roam where they please and go wherever they’d like, just not when it involves violence on public property. “Although the government can't stop you from joining with a group of others to make your views known, you must do it in a peaceful manner” (The Right To Gather Has Some Restrictions).
Most of these causes were either self taught or learnt by others in our society. Though stereotyping is a big issues, there are many possible ways to break stereotyping. The easiest way possible to break these stereotyping is having a open mind to everyone. With having a open mind to people meeting others with different backgrounds and going to things with a diversity of people is something that could help with societies issue of stereotyping. When we start acknowledging the fact that we are individuals and that people don 't come in groups we will start to understand not to judge others as groups and not to judge all around.
