Luke Wichman Mr. Carrico Hum 3321 Question 1 29, September 2017 Predator Prejudice In today’s society stereotypes and social scripts play a major role in today’s world. Stereotypes and Social scripts are often used when describing people and often have negative connotations. The Maltese Falcon has obvious masculine stereotypes and an ideology of women as being subservient to men, which is portrayed as them being housewives, but in Zootopia, despite the fact that the bunny faces a stereotype of being too small and being a girl bunny trying to get into the mostly manly police force, she overcomes all of this and proves them wrong. The ideology of this movie shifts and a stereotype is broken. This plays an even bigger role in today’s society because it shows the younger generation problems that everyone faces with stereotypes, but also shows them no matter what the stereotypes are you can overcome and change them with perseverance and hard work.
All better than people.” She has witnessed many displeasing things and the natural cruelty of animals is preferred by her than what she has witnessed outside. As a white Creole, many people hated her family. Her family was ruined because of the racial disputes. Her mother’s insanity was triggered too by this. Even her husband seems to be distant because of this racial difference.
Foreign cultures were represented as crude, disrespectful, and inhuman. “The movie Aladdin shows negative stereotypical imagery and lyrics in the movie. In the movie The Lion King, jive talking hyenas were characters that lived in a jungle equivalent of an inner-city ghetto. Finally, the film Pocahontas is Disney’s answer to the previous criticisms on racial/cultural biases” (Gries, Mumy, Allodi). The false images Disney portrays for children will influence the decisions and the actions they execute later in their lives.
From Delaware to California, and from North Dakota to Texas, many states (and cities, too) could impose legal punishments on people for consorting with members of another race. The most common types of laws forbade intermarriage and ordered business owners and public institutions to keep their black and white clientele separated. In Of Mice and Men, the theme of racism is expressed throughout by the character Crooks. The treatment of Crooks is both interesting and startling to a modern reader: he has some social contract with the rest of the ranch workers but is still persecuted by them for being black. In the routinely racist world of 1930s California, Crooks’ colour is his defining feature, as Candy explains, ‘Ya see the stable buck’s a nigger’.
Psychology In The Movie “Zootopia” -How does the labeling theory influence on building Nick’s identity- “If the world 's only gonna see a fox as shifty and untrustworthy. There 's no point in trying to be anything else” is a quote from Disney movie “Zootopia” (Zootopia). Usually, Disney movies are more than children animations and deliver lessons to both adults and children.

Good morning everyone, Take a second and think about all the movies you watch and have watched, the cartoons, the Disney movies and the comedies on TV. Remember when you sang along with those Disney characters that you were so fond of, the very funny moments you watched of an overweight actor fall over because of their size, think about all those cartoons you watched when the girl with the glasses was considered the smart one and the girl with the pink outfit was the appealing one. Music, movies, tv shows, magazines, and advertisements promote gender stereotypes to children where in today 's world children are more involved with the internet, therefore, more affected by media. The images and stories, kids see in the media, play a significant role in framing their sense of what 's "acceptable" in society. How many of you watched at least 2 disney movies in your life?
In Beloved by Toni Morrison, cruelty factors into the theme, dehumanization in Blacks because Whites employ cruelty to coerce Black slaves to view themselves as animals who serve superior human. Thus, Black slaves gradually start to independently view themselves with the same rights as animals. Cruelty is a noun that consists of the act of inflicting physical or mental pain to others. Accordingly, in Cincinnati, Ohio and Kentucky in the 1850s, cruelty is the factor that forces Sethe, a Black, female slave to turn homicidal and ignore human ethics like gentleness and peace because she does not want to be dehumanized by schoolteacher again. In other words, the cruel savagery in Whites is the source of the savagery in Sethe when Sethe is desperate for freedom.
Gregor was such an isolated and poor person that he cut the picture of the lady with the fur or a magazine to hang on the wall, to remind him of better things. Gregor's metamorphosis into a cockroach is strange but at the same time is reasonable, because insects as beetle, but or cockroaches are associated with old dirty houses, and trash. If Gregor would have been a cat or a dog, his parents would not considered him so disgusting and they would not have rejected him. But in this case, Gregor is a bug and his parents really thought that a giant cockroach is something that must be hidden. This kind of things happens everyday.
Alike other little girls, I grow up with Disney. The image of the soft Mickey toy which my parents bought me when I was three still vividly embeds in my membrane. Undeniably, Disney has a great impact on people born in the late 90s and the millennials in Vietnam. Additionally, Disney has a big influence on mass media, and mass media contributes in the development of children’s mindset; therefore, to an extent, Disney still has its dark sides that might leave negative effects on children. In my early years, Disney was my only media source.

How Candy is fighting back tells us that he knows that if the dog goes, he’ll go next because he's also becoming old and this presents on how society treats people badly because of their age. In Crooks’s little shed Curly’s wife gets mad at him for telling her to leave. “Crooks seemed to grow smaller and he pressed himself against the wall. “Yes ma’am” “Well, you keep your place when nigger.
The children see how harshly Mr. Gilmer, the prosecutor, treats a black man like Tom Robinson. The children become aware of the cruelty of racism when an innocent black man is found guilty of assaulting a white woman. Broken and in shock, Jem, Scout, and Dill try to forget the incident because they are unhappy with the result of the trial. The children try to let time pass and move on but are unable to forget some of the immoral reasons behind it, which is the racial discrimination against the blacks and the unjustifiable prosecution of a guiltless
Miller and the Hadley’s greatly underestimated these children. The adults wanted to love and trust them but, in the Hadley’s case, it was a fatal choice. Peter and Wendy lured their parents into the nursery, they had to recognize the lions would eat them. Miriam wanted to suck the resources out Mrs. Miller, this kind of burden did not occur to the girl. The roles are switched in these stories and the children wield great power over the adults in terrifying ways.
Also, by showing disrespect to her servants, Mrs. Merriweather shows people that she is racist. The last character to show racist behaviors is Bob Ewell by not liking the fact that he lives so close to the African Americans.
