The people we choose to socialize with reflects who we are as a person. Most often society makes assumptions based on the people we hangout with based on the way they act, look, and/or present themselves, this is called group stereotyping. Some of the most common stereotypes are the preps/jocks, the intellectuals, and the goths/punks. Society has made an overgeneralization about these groups by assumption and by previous knowledge from older relatives. The majority of people think preps/jocks are meatheads who need the help of other to pass their classes and who cannot hold any type of intellectual conversations that do not consist of exercise or sports.
Although it wasn’t their intention (I think), some of the things they said were offensive towards people of color. I also felt like I was inferior to them because they made me feel like I wasn’t as smart as them. I was (and still am) different. My Mexican family is a very loud and comedic one, so I tend to be a bubbly person that doesn’t make sense sometimes. To them that meant I was “as dumb as a blonde.” I was too young to have the strength and ability to address these issues to them, so I let it fester inside of me.
There are many factors that cause people to plagiarize. The most common cause is people do not know much about plagiarism. A lot of students are uneducated about the wrongdoing of plagiarism, thus many of them are unaware about their act of plagiarism. Plagiarism
Stereotypes form from the way someone talks to the group they are in. While misconceptions are formed from people assuming what the others personality is, but it is not the truth. In About Men by Gretel Ehrlich, states how cowboys have been idealized into this person who is courageous, however they are truly being spontaneous and do not care about courage. The states idolized the cowboys and created more stereotypes. These stereotypes created misconceptions as they gradually stopped applying to the majority.
Is competition good or bad? While most students in school think it is good, I disagree with them. I believe competition is bad. Many students around the world are overly competitive. This can have many negative effects on them and the other students they are competing against.
One example is if you are not as good as the other kids, the better kids might make fun of you and then you feel like you are nothing and when that happens you feel as worthless like a bump on a log. Another example is when you mess up you have that kid that bullies just for the heck of it and then you're self esteem goes lower because you feel embarrassed in front of the whole team. The last example according to Why I don't Want My Kid To Play competitive sports is you might not have fun because kids are being mean to you and then everything goes downhill from
Like if there is drugs, or a unlicensed gun they still believe it is because of their race. But they still believe they did nothing wrong. But still some of the time it is for that reason, and that is wrong because everyone in this world should be equal. But in this community I haven’t really seen it or really heard of it. In school there might be something, like some kids don’t like others because of the way they act or because of some of the things they do outside of school.
At that time he was one of the only ones and naturally many people laughed at him and asked him to do stupid things that would make him the joke of the school all under the pretence that he would be ‘cool’. Now this boy, let’s call him Mike for now, did all those things, believing that the people who asked him to do them were his friends. My teachers had a hard time dealing with Mike, as they often did not understand what to do with him as he needed special attention. Now that I have become a teacher myself and am confronted with inclusive education I realise that I have to find
They engage in the use of stereotypes when judging others, which makes it difficult for individuals to fit with other ethnic groups. Likewise, individuals show prejudice against others based on what they have heard from their families and friends. That being said, they tend to express negative comments against others who have different ethnicities. When individuals hear the word "stereotypes", they forget there are both positive and negative expressions. However, usually, the result of these statements can impact
People act like bullies to others. People who are been bullied believe their lives are the worst some of them have suicidal thoughts. For me all of this ideas of worst lives are not even the worst. For me the worst are not related to feel ashamed of who you are or not having to much money. Some people out there are afraid of how their lives will end.
