Stereotypes

Postby Absolutely Adequate » Wed Feb 28, 2007 1:19 am

So, I'm starting to teach the book "Night" with my 10th graders tomorrow. And today I asked them if any of them were prejudiced or racist. They said no. Then, I asked them to take out a piece of paper and write what they thought of each group as I read them aloud. I thought you all might be interested in their responses.

FYI = my classes are 70% black and 30% hispanic.

1. vegetarians
“they probably are too cheap to buy meat.” “they think they are better.” “white and angry.” “weak.”


2. people who wear dashikis
“make them look dumb.” “they are dumb for walking around in something that makes them look dumb.” “stinky.” “stink.”



3. people who wear yarmulkes
“don’t look right.” “they look funny with it on.” “wrong and gay.” “pointless.”


4. students with punk haircuts
“I think it’s gay.” “old-fashioned.” “stupid looking people.” “trying to hide their personalities.” “freaks.”



5. students with skin-head haircuts“probably have leukemia.” “Nazis” “prison haircut.” “nuts.” “ugly.”


6. students who wear gold chains around their necks
“their style is wack.” “it’s fake, just like ---'s.” “Slow and fake.” “mostly fake.”


7. –



8. students with orange hair
“need attention” “weird and follow other people.” “disrespectful.” “crazy.” “gay.”



9. skateboard users
“they look dumb.” “mostly are white kids.” “always in danger.” “hoodlums.”


10. boys who wear an earring
“gay.” “followers.” “might be gay.” “mama’s boy.” “trying to look like a girl.”





1. African-American
“like chicken.” “need to get along soon.” “loud and some are mean.” “I can’t stand ghetto black people.” “ghetto, loud, act like they have something to prove.” “self-destructive.”


2. Jews
“don’t like them.” “very cruel, hate them.”


3. Rich people
“no life.” “stingy.” “spoiled brats.” “they think they own the world.” “greedy, mean, lazy.” “jerks.”


4. Japanese“smart.” “like to be white.” “trying to take over all the businesses.” “they look alike.” “They can do nails.” “looks like they can’t open their eyes.” “all look alike.” “cheap.”


5. Hispanics“love to fight.” “think they can say what they want because they speak a different language.” “like to dance and eat beans.” “look stupid.” “gangbangers” “trying to take over America.” “Hardworking.” “violent.” “gang-bangers.” “have 20 people in a house.” “fight a lot.”


6. Athletes
“losers.” “stinky” “gay.” “smell bad.”


7. Obese people
“need to be on a diet.” “everyone isn’t made to be skinny.” “disgusting.” “eat too much.” “lazy.” “need to lose weight.” “lazy.”


8. Homosexuals“funny.” “nasty people.” “someone kill them.” “disgusting.” “the worst kind of people.” “gay.”


9. Politicians“waste of time.” “don’t know how to make the right decision.” “cheaters.”


10. White people“if they are girls, they are hos.” “some are mean and nasty, think they’re superior, act like jackasses.” “snitch, snitch, snitch.” ”smart.” “most are racist.” “ugly.” “gay.” “they think this is their land.” “I only like some of them.” “think they are better than everyone else.” “lazy.”




I obviously only took the worst or most common answers for each. I guess I just thought this was interesting enough to share.

So in other words, it seems they hate everyone. :-D

Not really funny though. Quite sad actually. :-/

Not one white kid in any of your classes? Where on Earth do you teach? :-? Just the state would be cool if you would be so kind. :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I teach in Prince George's County, Maryland. It's one of the worst districts in the US. Remember a few years ago when DC had the highest murder rate in the US? Well, DC has gentrified. And all the gangbangers have moved to Maryland.

Pedantic: Your comment was totally gay.

Class field trip to the concentration camp of tolerance!
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

I like this one especially, being one that used to be into the punk rock fashion and music and sported a huge colored mo-hawk. If anything it expresses your personality, not hide it.
