Moving Beyond Stereotypes to Understanding and Tolerance

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Discuss a time someone made an assumption about you. Was it positive? Negative? How did it impact you?

How do stereotypes impact the way we see ourselves and our personal efficacy? How might stereotypes and assumptions influence a person’s attitudes toward others? Look at some of the perpetual stereotypes illustrated in this film. Why might they be harmful?

    Every one always thinks I am really weak because I am short. Well shocker there because of that I started working out. Now i’m kinda strong and people don’t think that about me. This experience kinda was positive because it made me change.

    When I was younger people were surprised when I told them I liked Pokemon and video games because I was a girl. The boys also wouldn’t let any of the girls play basket ball. They had to make the girls and boys play basket ball on separate days.

    My brother jokes around and says that i’m stupid. I take it as a joke and ,make a negatives comment back. It is usually serious and then in goes down hill from there. It’s makes me feel bad every time, but when he says that i’m stupid it’s an instinct to say something mean back.

    I have never been harassed for anything probably because I keep my head low and not get into a fights. I will show an example for it though,Ex: Asians get harassed by people saying you are chines even though they might be Japaneses.

    well some people can be serious hurt by the thing that people say.Me as in myself i do not condome people being gay.Because it is a sen and it is just flat out descuting.But that is my personal belief.And with my personal belief most people dont agree with me but the majorate do.Some people riased in a house hold when being gay is not tallerated that is why.ME as in my self do not like or disagree with boys and men being gay.

    People think I´m rich, but I’m really not. I don´t take it in a bad way, but people should not be judged by a color of their skin, or by the way they dress.

He thought just because i had a hispanic last name it meant that i was hispanic.Im mixed with black and white and because my dad is from the dominican Republic even though he’s black.I never met any of his family so how am i supposed to no where that name came from but im fine with the name. I just dont like that people assume things about me.But im fine with the sub i told him i wasent

    I get stereotyped daily for my weight and my height. People believe that since I’m small I can’t reach many things and I get insulted and laughed at about it every day. People will go out of there way to make me feel small and useless because I’m short and because of my weight people think that I don’t have endurance and I can’t go into place because i’m chunky. These are the stereo types I hear daily and there are still more.

    also i can reach a lot more that people think i can.
