Please do not misunderstand me, not all social conditioning experiences are bad. For example; being socially conditioned to smile even when things are not going well, or being polite when someone is disrespecting you or treating you ugly, being cheerful despite being placed in a tough situation or accused of a dreadful thing. Social conditioning could be either good or bad depending on your background and
People who create such harsh judgments have never tried to relate to other people and to see the world in a new perspective. Logic states that people who do know him understand the good side of him and the ones who have never tried to make amends with Logic often created poor understandings. Then, Logic provides the effect of these horrible actions; these effects mainly include the victim realizing there is no hope or one to provide moral support. When Logic describes the feelings of the gays, he says, “Momma don’t love me/ Daddy don’t love me/ Wonder why I drown in the bubbly” (Logic).
Ponyboy was genuinely upset about his hair, therefore he accepts his appearance as a greaser, as well. Ponyboy is negatively affected by the stereotype because he gets into multiple legal problems. He is forced to go to court because his friend, Johnny, killed a Soc named Bob. “Greasers can’t walk alone too much or they’ll get jumped, or someone come by and scream “Greaser!” at them, which doesn’t make you feel too hot, if you know what I mean” (2).
In this short story, everything has to do with equality. No one can be more intelligent, stronger, or more attractive. Handicaps are making people unequal. People in this short story isn’t equal because the most intelligent people have to suffer because of the handicaps. “Every twenty minutes or so, the transmitter would send out some sharp noise to keep people like George from taking unfair advantages of their brain” (page 2).
The Socs are more of a disgrace to society than the greasers because they are a menace to everyone. This is because they pretend to be something that they are not. Cherry explained to Ponyboy that every Socs is emotionless, or at least tries to be, which makes them fake. Greasers may steal, but this has no long-term effect on the community. The greasers actually care about what happens in the community.
“Stereotypes are belief about the characteristics or attributes and behaviors of members of certain groups. They are also theories about how and why certain attributes go together” (Hilton, von Hippel,1996 pg). Persons are assigned into different categories as a form of organizing society into simpler manageable groups. As it depicts the social attitude towards others that may or may not fit into another person’s standings, it can be positive or negative and can occur involuntary at times.
Swifts argument is better. Swift honestly had a better argument even though he was joking, it made more of an connection with me. The fact, eating and breeding humans would stop overpopulation, famine, and the poor not having any work opportunities. But Hardin’s argument was just harsh, I didn't really like how he talked about people he had a very negative perspective on other people such as immigrants.
Our culture today puts materialistic wants at a higher standard than our moral values, changing our views on committing this crime. Shoplifting among teens is often the result of peer pressure, or because some young people may find it cool or daring. Jealousy may also be a factor because kids want things their classmates have, but can't afford them or teens may also want attention from their parents or friends when they shoplift from stores. Moral values are tossed aside when it come to being cool and impressing others and this leads to the increasing rate of shoplifting. The religion people follow sometimes have effects on their judgements and perspectives if the religion is misinterpreted, as no religion implements that stealing is good.
Since the cooks were uneducated and the recipes were handed down verbally, there are no written recipes available to us. Someone who does not know about the varied heritage of India does not know about Indian gastronomic rapport. Like for an Indian there are dishes associated with the gravies and we understand that each preparation has name a name, but for a foreigner they are all curries and nothing more than that. In India every state has its own cuisine and surprisingly, it is sometimes very different from other parts in India, both in terms of tastes, textures, and the way are cooked or even served. The cuisines have no resemblance with each other.
Vegetarianism is not uncommon or unusual in China, though, as is the case in the West is still only practiced by a relatively small portion of the population (“The Cultural Heritage of China”). The Chinese vegetarian does not eat a lot of tofu, unlike the stereotypical impression in the West. Most Chinese vegetarians are Buddhists. Non-Chinese eating Chinese cuisine will note that a large number of vegetable dishes may actually contain meat, as meat chunks or bits have been traditionally used to flavor dishes. Chinese Buddhist cuisine has many true vegetarian dishes (no meat at all) (“The Cultural Heritage of China”).
Competing Businesses - “Wings, Beer, Sports!” There is a surprising amount of restaurants that serve wings in Hays (at least 13); however, they are not known for their wings. When someone goes to The Golden Q, they usually think of burgers. When someone goes to Pizza Hut, they usually think of pizza. Buffalo Wild Wings is the place known for “wings, beer, sports.”
Charlie first experiences people making fun of him, now that he has knowledge to understand that. This event must have hurt him deeply, because the very people he trusted and thought were his friends were actually mocking and making fun of him. He feels ashamed because people are using his name as an excuse for making mistakes, and he didn’t want to be known this way.
Stereotypes, a perception of a group of people that known their features unique to others. Stereotypes can be related to race, gender, culture, or even traditions. Stereotypes relate mostly to racism and sexism. Stereotypes revolve around a community that is not knowledgeable of a certain group. Stereotypes are most common within different race and genders.
I both agree and disagree with Nenia Campbell’s statement. “We always vilify with what we don’t understand” (Nenia Campbell). The part in the statement that I do not agree with is the word ‘always’. I do agree that we often vilify what we do not understand, but not always. Take for example a soldier.
