When people say “If you don’t like the school lunches, then bring your own.”, a lot of people get upset and sometimes angry because some people can’t afford to bring in food from home because some families are limited to what they can give their children when they come to school. Not everyone has the same income or benefits that other families might have. So when the school knows that not everyone can bring in lunch and knows that majority of the school doesn’t like what the students are being served, the school should be quicker than quicker to make sure that there is being a change in what the students are eating. Students understand that there is a food act that pretty much tells schools what to feed us and in what portion but there have been multiple occasions where food have came out cold and moldy. I know from
But in reality, we are all just too lazy to take the time to get to know that person. We ignore the fact that everyone has different personalities, looks, and lifestyles. This is proved by part of the quote above, “Stereotypes are fast and easy, but they are lies…” Hazel Elizabeth Deborah Parker, the main character in “Raymond’s Run” by Toni Cade Bambara, demonstrates stereotyping, just like everyone else in the world. Hazel, aka Squeaky, is the
One part is Esperanza being mildly shy. Her shyness is especially apparent when she is around people who she doesn't know well. This is probably because of the intimidation she feels that these people pose to her. For example, in the chapters "The First Job" and "A Rice Sandwich" Esperanza is too shy to eat with her other co-workers and friends, as shown in the quote from "The First Job": "When lunch time came I was scared to eat alone in the company lunchroom".

I know how weird it looks... Like some prehistoric swamp thing.” Also, Quarta said in the story “... there were some lunches where her teachers had to give her food, like a baby, and this was embarrassing.” Another thing Auggie and Quarta have in common is that they don’t have many friends. Auggie is lucky that he has a few, Summer and Jack Will, but in “The Girl who was Born…”
Although it can be believed she is inconsiderate, she can also be seen as kind. People believe this because she has taken actions like buying a meal for someone; however, just because she has done some kind actions, the rude attitude that she portrayed in the majority of the story towards her husband, Jellyband, and by mocking the Comtesse need to be acknowledged. The actions marguerite have taken show she is extremely rude and inconsiderate despite the fact that some others don’t
First impressions mean a lot in society. Many people judge others based on appearance, their experience with a similar person, or stereotypes set in stone over the years. Usually, once people make their first inference, they can’t divert from that mindset. Especially when interacting with different age groups, people often disregard others because they think they’ll receive the same treatment they usually receive from others who are significantly different from them, and because of this, those who come from different backgrounds and age groups are growing further apart.
Schools and students have found loopholes in the USDA’s plan to regulate the nutritional value of school lunches. While schools have to follow the USDA guidelines for their official daily served lunch and breakfast options, alternate food options such as vending machines and ‘a la carte’ lines are causing trouble. These alternate lunch options are referred to as “competitive foods” (“Junk Food in Schools”). These competitive foods are the issue and need to be altered in school cafeterias across the nation. They offer a replacement to the regular school lunches, and some kids find themselves skipping out on the school provided lunch options altogether (“Junk Food in Schools”).
To put it differently, stereotypes are “sets of convictions associated with a group, generalized to all its members” (Agius & Ambrosewicz, 2003, p. 33). For instance, Asians mostly think that Westerners are not able to use chopsticks. Nevertheless, this stereotype turns out to be inaccurate as many Westerners pride themselves in using chopsticks skilfully. “I cannot count the number of times I’ve been told I use Japanese chopsticks with skill and grace” (Wright, 2008). Furthermore, as said by Aliasis (2013), “it's true that chopsticks aren't our eating tool of choice, and many people in the West have never touched a pair.

There are similarities between the characters with discrimination because they both face racial and gender inequalities also. The differences are in the way they react. Skeeter acts in an angry manner and Scout reacts more confused and doesn’t really understand it. Skeeter acts differently than Scout because she is much older and can comprehend what is going on around her unlike Scout who 's a little girl. The situations are different because, if Skeeter was in Scout’s shoes and had to see Tom lose even though he clearly should have won, she would have been really mad because she is not a fan of the whole racist thing that’s going on.
Many people are not happy with the things they own because it is “too much” of they have and it is not worth keeping it. However, they have spent money on it therefore, they cannot throw it out easily or they could have stored memories within it. Similarly, in the article “The Class Politics of Decluttering” by Stephanie Land, published on July 18, 2016, suggests how Marie Kondo’s tidying up methods do not give joy. Land explains how throwing away things make you sad because they are not only the things which require space, but the memories that you have created with them. Land defines nostalgia as a sad emotion because she has to throw away her stuff to have enough space in her house.
