Jem, Scout, and Dill always stereotype Boo Radley without knowing him or knowing his real story. To explain this example I say people always stereotype people without knowing the person. When a person is walking down the street another person will be stereotyping him or her for religion or race. Another example is when they put Tom Robinson in jail for rapping a white women, but he was innocent. The court won't hear his side they think he is lying because Tom is black.
The defining moment in David’s inevitable demise is not when he steals the $100 his mother refuses to lend him, but the “altercation, noisy and bitter between this mother and son” as David’s predicament is a clear representation of his mother’s “mismanagement”, though she never takes responsibility for being the source of sin for her children (84). As the altercation continues, Mrs. Wilson’s focus remains on Martha’s death and her not being chosen or saved by Christ, but David becomes quite hostile voices his plans behind his mother’s back to obtain the funds she refused to provide. While one could expect that David would meet his punishment for stealing, but as seen with Elvira, Jane is once again the scapegoat for the children’s crimes despite her insistence that she had nothing to do with the latest scandal within the Wilson household. When it comes to this event, Mrs. Wilson’s behavior is very hostile towards Jane and I believe that this was an overcompensation for the grief she felt at the realization of her child’s sinful behavior, his corruption. It becomes evident that Mrs. Wilson’s egocentric behavior only worsens near the novel’s end, when David finally succumbs to

For example, the author writes “He wanted a second chance. Another chance to be confident… But he busted her jar of mayonnaise and nothing else worked out…” (Rylant 283).

Before the turning point, Bud despised being called by other names because of what his mother constantly told him when she was alive. He also did not have family that he could trust and give love to. “I wasn’t about to let anybody call me Buddy and stick a pencil up my nose all the way to the R. I swung as hard as I could at Todd’s balloon head.” (Curtis, 13). Bud did not allow someone to call him Buddy, as Bud when Bud was called Buddy, he punched Todd Amos.
The Hip hop industry consists of mostly African American musicians. Since blacks are often alienated in society, their music seems to be too. People often give rappers negative labels such as “gangster” or “thug”, which are discriminatory words that people have often used to describe African Americans in the media. There is an everlasting double standard in music. as people bash rap music for being sexist and violent, other genres of music such as country or alternative have the same themes, but they’re vulgar lyrics go
Gates then goes on to share how “there are no better people in the world than Jews” (Lee 329), and it is beyond her comprehension to know why Hitler could commit acts against them. The irony lies in her blindness to the similar oppression happening in her home town. The children are taught that Hitler is a monster for his anti semitic actions in Germany; meanwhile, African Americans are forced to face daily suppression in Maycomb County. Both groups have stereotypes that cause others to perceive them as

Author clearly represents Mrs. Birling as a poor mother because as a result she is not in any way involved in Eric’s life. She does not know either about his drinking problems or Eva Smith and his future son. On account of him having a bad reputation of a rich-spoilt child who is a total disappointment and invisible to his parents, he feels it. Consequently all of this lead to his next actions such as heavy drinking therefore “raping” a girl in the bar, describing her afterwards as :” a good sport” To put it another way, it is a regular thing for Eric to have fun with girls, at the same time not getting into serious relationship, because none actually notices what he
My mom didn 't like him and always tell me that I shouldn 't be hanging around with him and I should be hanging around kids my own age like Alan. One reason she didn 't like him was because of this incident where he ask if he could use the a basketball that was signed by a NBA player Jason Kidd which was pretty value bale at the time.
