Considering that Franklin’s Silence is to speak what may benefit others or myself, I do believe abiding to this will make me balanced and keep me out of unnecessary disputes. The Order virtue tells me that should let all my things have their place and that all my business should have their own time. To
My best piece that I wrote for this class was called “White Supremacy in Standing Rock” and this piece speaks to all those that are willing to listen. I believe that our life experiences and the media that we are exposed to often shapes many of our core values and beliefs and that’s why as a world, humans are so divided. Everyone has their own “formula” for the way things ought to be and that’s part of what I’m addressing in my essay. I speak on the behalf of those in a similar position I’m in; simply a bystander in the issue at Standing Rock.
I also know that discrimination is not fair, so I set an example by having all types of friends, no matter their color, race, or gender. I do not see a difference between people because at the end of the day, I feel that we are all human beings and should be treated equally. At school, teachers constantly pick me as their team leader whenever a task is being done because they know that I will get the job done and that they can depend on me without worrying about the outcome. Respect is something my parents have always taught me and even though sometimes it is hard to stay quiet, I respect everyone around me and I believe that even though I’m still young, people do respect my ideas because they see that I respect them equally. On a day to day basis, I try to use all the different values that I have learned throughout my life and that is because that’s the kind of person I am
The protest led to awareness and acknowledgment of the initial treaties and agreements. To what extent has the federal government affirmed collective rights in the legislation over time? Canada is different than any other country, including the United States, because of our collective rights. The purpose of them is so different groups of people can have an identity. Which overall, would create a diverse society with many identities which people can be a part of.
The believing game helped me understand how life works and not become so stressed if something does not go my way. Not all teachers will teach to my specific learning style. Believing that I can do well in a class and learn from any teacher helped me not only deal with high school, but will also help me throughout college and life. The believing game does not just pertain to academic struggles, but also any obstacle one may face throughout life. I learned that changing my perspective allows me to see that sometimes things are my fault and it is myself that needs to change, not other
A quote that I have used to help me through high school at Mountain Heritage High School is “The Point is not to take the world’s opinion as a guiding star but, to go one’s way in life and working unerringly, precisely; neither depressed by failure nor seduced by applause.” This quote reminds me to stay humble and never give up. This quote has also reminded me, in countless situations, that other people’s opinions of me should not define me.
Several researchers have speculated that something about dating “can be toxic to a girl’s health” (Study: Teen Love Hurts p.2). The relationship between Romeo and Juliet was clearly unhealthy for Juliet, for it made her view Romeo as her main priority after knowing him for one night. She began defying her parents and sneaking around as soon as she met Romeo, which is not a part of a healthy relationship. Overall, negative relationships are harmful to both members of the relationship and often lead to making thoughtless decisions, and this proves that the relationship Romeo and Juliet had was entirely
There is nothing wrong with protesting as long as it is kept peaceful and does not disturb the school or students inside of it. The Tinker vs. Des Moines Independent School is a case that is still reflected upon today. It is referred to in cases concerning freedom of speech. I think that when most people read about this case and look at all the fact and details they will see and agree that students of all ages should be allowed to exercise their rights at school. Schools can make decisions concerning what they want to happen and how they want people to act while on campus, but they can never decide that the people in their building are not entitled to their
It does it matter who I am with, I will consistently tell people that I want to be a counselor for my future career. I don 't believe that I am completely true to myself but, I am starting to get there. I used to try to be someone that everybody else wanted me to be. In middle school I would do things so I would look "cool" to my peer.
We still would have taken the same actions. " She further said "If the family is willing to give us written permission, we would be happy to share with the public the other side of the story so they can understand the actions we took”, in other words, Lesley Weaver claims that this matter was not a matter of Islamophobia, but a matter of proper protocol. So from what Weaver tells us, the Irving school district did not fail to follow proper procedure in regards to situations like Ahmed’s and that the school should not be held accountable for any mistakes outside the school, apart in which did not make sense was that the school district decided to fire the teacher. If the school district claimed that what the school did was the right thing to do… then why would the school district take the time to search and fire the teacher. It is as if they were trying to hide the truth with lies, which leds to the question of whether or not Islamophobia was
Unfortunately, her mother strongly rejected her pleading because it was not the social norm for girls or women to receive an education (Bokser 12). Although Sor Juana’s mother declined her permission she did not let it cease her and still continued to study privately. Furthermore, as she grew older, Sor Juana continued to encounter the discrimination because she is a female who aspired for an education. In Sor Juana’s Rhetoric of Silence, Bokser articulates how Sor Juana, as an adult now, realizes the disruptions, risks, and obstacles that continuously occurred in attempts to learn. Bokser states, “Her portrayal of the female intellectual is markedly different from the classical image of the bodiless masculine mind” (12).
Thought of as dumb and retarted women were also disrespected and still are. At the time they were discriminated against for many reasons between gender inequality to straight up abuse based off of ignorance. One striking source of abuse was that they were disrespected because of their views against slavery. This among many other things is ignorant and was based off of anger towards the blacks which led to anger towards anyone who was willing to stand up for them. Although women disagreed with slavery, they did not stand up as much as would have been helpful for the time and often sat back and stayed in there places.
Introduction: Social norms are the base templates which guide our behavior everyday. Social norms entail an expected behavior based off of those norms, and that we will conform to those expectations on a regular basis. These norms rise from our evolution of social dynamics. As the people in a society consistently interact with each other and other components of society, people begin to form a certain set of expectations on how the interactions and situations should proceed. As a large portion of society begins to conform to this standard, the certain behaviors that one would have in a particular situation will start to be considered as normative behaviors.
Society has a way of making people feel like they have to act a certain way in order to be accepted. In fact, students today are taught to be leaders not followers, which helps them not to fall into the temptations of society. Not only is this true today, but it was also true in the thirties in the south. In To Kill A Mockingbird, a story set in Alabama in the 1930s, Harper Lee uses characterization to show how society influences people’s behaviors through her characters Dolphus Raymond, Mayella Ewell and Boo Radley. Dolphus
