With that being said, the author justifies why the white male is the most privileged class in the society that has been built. The consequences compared to many other races, and classes have a difference. With all the evidence the author presents, I do agree with his point of how our society has been built to give others an advantage over others within a different categorized group. One point the author claims is that when compared to African Americans, the white male has a lesser consequence threshold and a stronger advantage in social situations.

Professional wrestling, for better or for worse, has always paid heavy attention to the physiques of those who step into the ring. The fans like extremes, or at least that’s the theory. They want to see absurdly muscly performers battle it out with ridiculously overweight opponents, which has led to some pretty interesting bodies over the years. However, chiselled physiques are quite difficult to maintain and fat bodies are unadvisable to maintain, which means for every awe-inspiring body in pro wrestling, there has been an awe-inspiring body transformation. Because pro wrestlers, especially those who perform for WWE, are constantly in the spotlight, these body transformations are usually impossible to hide and often times are the cause of much unwanted attention and mockery.

This detail supports the claim that kids who bully rarely take responsibility for their actions or consider
We as a society have an insatiable appetite for movies and television shows depicting serial killers who provide shock, trauma, and gore in the acts that they perpetrate. It is because of the media that these killers receive the acknowledgement they do, according to Mark Seltzer, author of widely acclaimed 1998 book, "Serial Killers: Death and Life in America 's Wound Culture." Seltzer noted that the media coverage surrounding a serial killer was overwhelmingly extensive. He posited that the volume of news stories, biographies depicting the killer’s crimes, and movies developed have made serial killers a “household name”. As a result, serial killing has become more of a career option rather than a criminal
But when it exceeds its permissible limits, it has the potential to play havoc in our lives. Jealousy is a very complex emotion and may not always be triggered for obvious reasons. Its causes are more closely related to the way we are brought up and how successful we are in life than anything else. A person who has complete faith in his/her abilities and strengths is less likely to experience this emotion as is the one who has been raised believing that he/ she is very special and gifted.

Bullying and harassment have been a noticeable problem among students in schools worldwide, and still social acceptance and acknowledgment is a continuous issue. Teens are often picked on because of their sexual orientation/preference, appearances, and many other physical or mental factors. One of the main reasons that bullying and harassment is so prevalent among the teen- aged group is because it is so easy for that age group to succumb to competitions within the group as to whom is the coolest.
