My biggest take away was when the girl said she was at a basketball game and the African American said " I don't shake white people hands." This really showed me just how racist people are today. the color of our skin shouldn't define who we are. I personally don't think the comment should have been said. it was unfair and not necessary.
The biggest take away in my opinion is when the girl said at the end of a basketball game an African American said "i don't shake white peoples hand" To be honest I still cant believe that the world hasn't changed and there is probably always gonna be racism in this world not only black and white but all other race. At the end of the day we need to realize how lucky we are to interact with each other. You never know u might end up becoming best friends with the oppsite race.
I was at the game, and one of the other school's team member knocked one of our girls down. And they were cheering and clapping.
My biggest "take away" that I heard from a student during the teleconference was when a girl from the other school shared an experience that she encountered. At the end of her basketball game when the two teams that have played usually shake hands, the girl said that some black girls on the other team said, "I don't shake white people's hands." It opened my eyes to realize that people judge so easily by looks, even when underneath it all we are the same. I think we really need to change this bad habit of stereotyping so easily just by a skin color or by how someone generally looks like from the outside.
My biggest take-away that I heard from a student during the teleconference was when a girl said something about a player from the other team not shaking her hand after the game because "she doesn't shake hands with white people." I was just in shock because I really thought the country was moving past those things, but I guess I some people aren't. I've played basketball since I was in the first grade and never have I heard or had something like that spoken to me. I've had girls not want to shake my hand or hit my hand harder than necessary because they were mad. I hope we as Americans can one day soon truly move past stereotyping and racism. Our skin colors don't define who we are. They're just characteristics. Everyone is equal, and therefore, everyone should be treated equally.
My biggest take away was when a student said African Americans said they don't shake hands with white people. I totally disagree with that because we suppose to love each other. It does not matter about our skin color. That just like if I try to shake hands with a white person and they say they don't shake black people hand. I would be mad because we all the same we just different race.
The biggest take away from the video was when one yall said someone on the opposing team wouldn't shake your hand because of your skin color. That's mainly racism but racism and stereotyping go hand-in-hand. Racism is still a problem but has gotten a lot better over the years. What she did was unsportsmanlike and rude. All we can really do is help prevent it by starting with ourselves. Like it's been said thousands of times "Never judge a book by its cover."
The biggest take away I herd from our video conference Friday was the question about mixing people together. I herd a lot of answers about this topic. I agree with the people who said that it might be a good idea because you might not hangout with someone because you have a stereotype in your head about them and it might nit be true. They could be really cool but you are thinking about that stereotype so you don't want to hangout with them I think mixing people together might help this because you are going to have to learn things about them. I can see how people might disagree with me because they might not like to talk to people they don't know.
The biggest take-away for me was mixing up seating charts to get different groups of people to become friends. Y'all said it created many new friendships between completely different people. I think this really shows how much people stereotype and judge people before they even know them. I think it's good to be friends with multiple people from groups different than yours. I agree with mixing up seating charts.
People cant stop stereotypes. There is always going to be one person that is going to stereotype. It is how we remember people. There is always going to be smart Asians, nerds, goths, atheletic types,etc. You cant take away stereotypes.
My biggest take away from the teleconference was that many people aren't comfortable with other people other than there friends. I feel the same way because I'm quiet but I was surprised at how many people agreed with me. I can see now why people aren't as willing to break away from there group of friends and try to make new ones that might be very different from them. They are comfortable with there group of friends that are most likely the same stereotype as them and they don't want to change that. Not very often do you find the "popular girl" talking to the "nerd" at school.
my biggest take away was that they live more country style then we do
My biggest take-away during the teleconference was when a girl made a point that I agreed with. A girl said that people should talk to someone and see how they’re like before you judge them. I agree with this, because in my experience, some people just judge based on how they look, and how they act, even though they have never talked to her before. I think that most stereotype is true, but saying them aloud and saying them to a person you don’t know is bad. You should at least talk to her and see how she’s like before judging her.
The biggest take away from the conference was that they had to be with the same group of kids throughout the day. It opened my eyes and made me realize that not all the schools run the same. If I went to their school as I student I would get bored because im used to being with different people throughout the day. I disagree with that they stay with the same people all day. Kids our age and grade need to be more social and be with different people.
My biggest take-away is that being willing to share things really helps. When people started sharing their stories and personal experiences it helped me understand better how stereotyping impacts other people. It also helped me understand how many other stereotypes there are, besides just racial stereotypes and things like that. I think of myself as outgoing, but I don't share personal things. That could be something I do to better break stereotypes and help other people break stereotypes.
The biggest 'take-away" that I heard from the teleconference was that stereotyping is bullying. This made a great point to me because its mainly what people say or think that hurts your feelings. I think that by keeping these thoughts in your head would be a good idea because no one would know that you thought that and no one would be offended. Also, I think if we never thought about it those thoughts would eventually go away because it would either be in the back of our minds or those thoughts would never be planted in our minds.
Some of the biggest stereo typing that I heard was that the way we act and how some of our attitudes are different and bullying and lots of peer pressure
My biggest take away from the teleconference was how yall mix up your seating charts so you can meet new people and develop friendships with people that you might not have before. I think that that is a great way to break stereotypes.
One comment from the teleconference that opened my eyes was when someone had said that stereotypes can be used in a good way such as risky decisions that someone might make in there life.
The biggest take away that I heard from the teleconference was that stereotyping is a bad thing. This made a great point to me because its mainly what people say or think that hurts your feelings. I think that by keeping these thoughts in your head would be a good idea because no one would know that you thought that and no one would be hurt. That's why my biggest take away was its a bad thing to do
