If students don’t have someone to take after and be a good light for them that might lead to being a bully. Madigan Laura, from Tales of Bullying It is my belief that the reason why students would be a bully is because they keep feeling like people aren’t like everyone else so they go and bully the ones who are not like them. If you feel like people aren’t like you then you will go bully those people. For instants, you will be a bully to feel cool or try and fit in with the cool popular kids. Being a bully is worse than being a bystander.
Young children would have to drop out of school to help out; all it brings is conflicts. This article can be used in favor of immgration to show the great impact that it causes to families and the conflicts that come with it. That is country isn’t bad as many racist people make it seem; there are actually people that are kind hearted and understand our feelings. Even though they might be citizens and rich they aren’t like the president, they help out. It shows how much we care and the difference we are trying to
People overlook the whole effect of the book and only focus on one main issue and that would be racism. Racism is a huge theme of Huckleberry Finn, however, other issues are shown that are essential to understanding the meaning behind the book. By teaching Huckleberry Finn in schools students, “develop their own critical thinking about literature, racism, and the literary canon” (Henry). Teaching such a controversial book students start to pick up their own beliefs about these certain issues. Some kids might be against the book, however, if they did not read Huck Finn they would not know for sure how they felt about racism.
In reality the study indicates that many of the unfair discrepancies minority focused schools face are present because parents of the privileged group put their kids into different schools. The phenomenon coined ‘white flight’ in turn creates the problem they are avoiding within their efforts of
The discipline for kids in public normally follows the same standard: Warning,Talk in hall,and Detention/suspension . what races are suspended most or in detention most? The answer is minorities such as black students who suffer from the social stereotypes of a standard black student. As if they’re destined to be troublemakers “Gotta keep an eye on that kid” This all goes back to implicit bias: referring to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our attitudes towards different things,places,or people. When you hear about illegal immigrants what race do you picture?
(217 Lee). Atticus is trying to say how that blacks have a bad reputation for themselves but, not all blacks are bad and it 's not fair for them to be treated like they aren 't as important as the whites when really it 's just a race of color and they are just people of the same human race as any other white male in their town and trying to teach his children to not be taken by the opinions of others and to understand right from wrong. In another part of the book it says, "They 're certainly entitled to think that, and they 're entitled to full respect for their opinions, but before I can live with other folks I 've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn 't abide by majority rule is a person 's conscience." (114 Lee).
Stereotypes are weapons that we can either use to help someone or we can use to hurt them. Most of the students who took my survey have been stereotyped by either race, grades, looks, relationships, and etc. I think us students and young adults have seen stereotypes as a bad thing, because no one really has used a stereotype in a good way and whenever you ask other students for an example of a stereotype it is either about race or gender at the school. Stereotypes have influenced students at high schools to do unthinkable things before, in our case at Dinuba High it influences students to not say anything about it or if they do, to make it seem like it was just a joke instead of a stereotype. The majority of the student’s in the class survey stated that if they don’t just ignore them or make a joke out of them they either confront them or they prove them wrong, which influences the stereotyper to leave them alone and shows people that they are more than just the label that they are so called “given”.
While some people may say individual racism is more harmful because it has a more negative effect on children, Institutional racism is more harmful because groups are much more dangerous than one person. One could argue that individual racism is more harmful because it has a negative influence on kids. Individual racism is more harmful because it sets a bad example for kids and it is more common in everyday life. One day after the trial, “Atticus was leaving the post office when Mr. Ewell
Signithia Fordham and John Uzo Ogbu, concluded that Black students turn against academic success out of fear they will be accused of "acting White." (Anonymous). Another issue that can impact the academic achievement gap is the family factors and experiences. As stated in the findings of the Sociological Perspective, “parental educational expectations for their children affected school achievement among a sample of African American adolescents”
How we can change Change regarding discrimination and racism will be extremely difficult, especially considering that racism has been going on for as long as we can remember. The American community is already so corrupt and biased that stereotypes are practically drilled into their minds already. Breaking down these stereotypes, undoing all those years of negative thinking and changing convicting representations of black people is the first step to hopefully ending racism. 2016 was a big year for social activists and only now is the media starting to celebrate diversity, but if we want change, we have to start normalising minorities. Personally, I believe that we have to stop giving racist slurs and stereotypes power, by labelling them as 'out of bounds ' or 'wrong ' you 're basically upholding their power and further giving them power to hurt.
