Introduction In today’s society, it’s hard to not come across stereotypes placed on others by others. And when I make reference to others I mean, media and ourselves as groups of friends and companions. Most of these single sided views and ideas stem from small truths. However these truths are somewhat altered and exaggerated ideas given a negative outlook/ perception. On the people or group who are faced with the judgement of these single sided views.
Whereas, some people are conscious about their behavior, they will often be referred to, as the ‘blame-shifters’. There is several major reasons and causes why a person shifts the blame to others, and it is so universal that several films and pieces of literature have adapted this as a theme. Blaming someone who is innocent will not always be easy, and at the same time they will have to convince themselves that they are right, by giving statements to their innerself, and others whether or not, they would be valid. Why do some people blame others more often than others, can have an explanation in the environment they grew up in, or in their personality. Parents can even propose a parenting system, in which, they have frequently blamed their child for their own mistakes.
On the surface, relativism allows people from various backgrounds from disagreeing on serious issues. In actuality, however, this is impossible. Thirdly, societal pressure often draws people towards an acceptance of moral relativism. Modern society ridicules those who oppose relativism; instead of encouraging individuals hold firm to their beliefs, society called moral objectivists bigots, backward, and close-minded. Young adolescents, especially, are susceptible to societal pressures.
I think the most I got out of this was, after labeling myself then labeling myself in other people’s views I really saw a distinct difference. That it is my choice if I want to try and hide my own real personality or let them stereotype me. I think people should just do whatever they want and not care about
1. Though there is an incredible amount of important characters in the novel, to me, the most significant character in Part 1 of To Kill a Mockingbird is Atticus Finch. His actions and treatment towards everyone and everything caused me think the most in comparison to the other characters. For instance, Atticus makes an important decision to defend Tom Robinson, a black man, in trial during Chapter 9, thus leading to harassment towards his family not only from school, but even from their own neighbor and a relative. While his actions put him and his family in trouble, Atticus still stands firm in his beliefs.
He is deep in self-thought as he continues with his point that common patriotic phrases are not necessarily positive and may seem problematic for a reader. Sloan indicates that someone with issues of patriotism or issues of authority may have difficulty agreeing with the expression because some slogans demand that readers agree. Rather than dismissing what might be considered absurd, maybe even in his own mind, he explores and analyzes other various examples of these patriotic expressions in terms of actions as if they were acted upon. In the majority of the article, more than half, Sloan seriously questions patriotic slogans. He examines the words of each one that comes to mind and provides illustrations that question the particular slogans meaning.
It had extremely superficial roots and while there were some sweet moments between the two of them, I find it difficult to believe that they could last. Although I’ll admit that I’m probably biased as in the end I don’t think Jamie fully redeemed himself after the way he treated Nettie over a misunderstanding. He took things a bit too far and really hurt an already emotionally injured Nettie. And even though he did provide an explanation for his actions, I felt that his reaction was disproportionate retribution to the situation. Overall I felt Christmas on Primrose Hill attempted to tell too many stories in one book which resulted in a novel that felt too long and often dragged at some parts.
Whenever we sort out something that is not right, we tend to put ourselves down plus we self-discipline ourselves. Furthermore, these qualities are different for the reason that in today’s society we always understand others photos longsighted that our ambitions are not the same as theirs so we may change it. Today the middle class values are not much of a priority as they were before we were
“You never really understand someone until you consider things from his perspective,” (Lee 30). To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper E Lee, illustrates the life of Jem and Scout as they go upon racial and pessimistic struggles of the nineteen sixties.With a community hinged on the verdict of an upcoming trial considering the case of a black man, Tom Robson, and the conspiracy of Bob and Mayella Ewell. The To Kill a MockingBird movie however, has several differences that vary the mood of the story, and Scout’s overall character development. One of the main differences in the To Kill a Mockingbird movie is the character development of Scout. The Absence of Aunt Alexandra in the movie is major mishap on the director for she played a key role in the development of Scout as a woman.
Reflection There is a certain relation between social change, leadership and advocacy. The three of them could exist alone but by using all of them together much more could be accomplished. For example, social change in many cases involves a change of attitudes, values and beliefs. In order to achieve a certain goal related to social change, a strong leadership is needed from a strong individual or a group of individuals. And those leaders often struggle with its achievement for it is not an easy task and many things could go wrong.
Humanity prejudges others for many various reasons whether it is based on race, gender, culture, sexuality, etc. We sometimes forejudge others without even knowing it just because we grew up thinking that its’ “okay” or “normal”. It’s not okay but society has that impact on us all and we feel as though we can do it without facing consequences. Based on what I’ve read in "C.P. Ellis" by Studs Terkel and "Veiled Intentions" by Maysan Haydar, both authors believe that prejudice is something a person is taught, but they both experienced prejudice differently; Ellis was the one feeling prejudice while Haydar was the one being prejudiced.
Humans tend to be biased toward others. There are many things and people in life that influences a person 's way of thinking. Being human, you are changed and persuaded by all those around you. No matter how wrong or right the way of thoughts are. others still follow and have the same vices.
Atticus alludes the jury to two of the most famous men in the era. When Atticus is saying this to the jury and everyone else he is saying that not everyone will play the role that they are given. Just because Tom Robinson is African-American doesn’t mean that he is bad and will do unlawful things. Another example of allusion is when Atticus is asking Mayella about what Tom Robinson did to her. He says, “It 's not an easy question Miss Mayella, so I 'll try again.
