Her perception of him was initially negative on sight, which she admits is a form of negative stereotyping. Yet, unfortunately her knee jerk judgement of the man turned out to be accurate. He proved he was a bigot when he uttered the n-word to her. This shows how stereotypes are often rooted in past experience to some degree.

Furthermore, Fitzgerald’s critique of society is an exemplar for all writers who wish to do so because in it, he effectively demonstrates the effects of societal influence on the critique. It is no wonder that artists who attack society often exclude themselves from it; they are trying to limit how they become influenced.
Embracing diversity in the media is important because it will shed light on the importance of protecting against racial stereotyping. Racial stereotyping is a well know problem that all minorities have faced. Racial stereotyping is when a person has preconceived notions on a person because they are of a certain race.

In the letter, I illustrated how his comment subconsciously makes Muslims feel inferior, and the effects of his comment on people who know little to no Muslims.
