In other words, emotions can either be good or bad. I feel that this is something that should be avoid because, when we refer to certain emotions as good or bad, we develop this concept that it is right or wrong to feel a certain way. This may result in some individuals feeling ashamed to feel “bad.” We have created a society where you force positivity upon people and shame those that are not positive. In doing this, we create a strict environment that fails to consider the diversity in emotion. In addition, if a person feels ashamed of their unhappiness, then they may be afraid to share their feelings.
We all tend to judge someone that has something different about them. Racial profiling can be unfair and unreasonable. It has been with us since slavery, but people have been ignoring the issue. This has become one of the biggest controversy in the world. Many individuals have been humiliated and scared off by cops.
They also begin to feel that as minorities they are in this inequality together, in return they can start to discriminate, stereotype, and prejudice the majority group in America. This can cause war and conflict in our society today. The final trait is minorities tend to be endogamous, meaning member tend to marry other members of the group. This can be imposed by the majority as in the case of laws against miscegenation. This is also problematic to our society because people of the majority can begin to look at the minority groups as even more inferior.
We are saturated with messages propagated by mass media. Through this, it has the ability to be especially harmful when comparing gender, race and/or class on the grounds that it constructs negative perceptions of those involved. Furthermore, reinforcing them on a daily basis albeit through cinema or advertising. It offers the public a way to frame what subcultures do and proves to be notoriously problematic because they often lack the state of being precise. Media is still vital because it can be used to socialize and on the other hand to make decisions and formulates opinions: it builds up the notoriety of vices.
Racism is something that needs to stop being taken so lightly. It for one has a toll of impact on many people’s lives. For instance, racial name callings can have many affects on an individual of the opposite race who is being harassed because of the color of their skin. It can truly damage a person’s self love and respect for themselves. Often the ones who make others feel that way are the ones that lack those character traits.
This false viewpoint can inhibit personal growth and confidence in individuals with a psychological disorder. This common myth could also lead to pity from society as well as healthcare professionals which could in turn make the patient believe that they are unable to get better and take care of themselves successfully. In all, for change to occur, society must start providing more positive representations of people with mental illnesses. This includes the removal of stigmatization of psychological disorders in the media so that society can have a better understanding of what such individuals actually
Stereotyping is actually more serious than we thought and it is becoming a major problem in our society today. But what is stereotyping? According to the dictionary, stereotype is defined as “a simplified and standardised conception or image invested with special meaning and help in common by members of a group.” Moreover, it is considered as a form of prejudice, as people are putting labels about how a person should act or live according to their gender, nationality, religion, personality or appearance. This creates pre judgment, including misconceptions, which can develop further, leading to bigger problems and complications. Society can be broken down into many groups or categories and there are all sorts of categories within stereotyping, which are the tools used to stereotype.
Ageism is a serious problem in today’s society. Ageist stereotyping happens today just as it did in the stories I read. We need stereotypes to a point, but it goes too far when the stereotype is wrong. Especially, ageism because people group others into vast age categories that are often wrong. The stereotype may be wrong for more than half of the people in the age group that’s why ageism is unjust.
To know that there are people in this world that will discriminate someone because of race is horrifying. Also the fact that many of the people hurting others are based on this are people from my own race, pains me even more. Racism is a significant issue to me because I cannot imagine the amount of suffering that people of color undergo by being alive. Although there has been improvements on social inequality and racism have been made, there is still so much more influence that has to be made on the world. We are not just making laws or regulations, we have to change complete mindsets of
