If you don't know the person don't judge them, unless you know almost everything about them
Exactly! I agree with what you said
You shouldn't do that to people even if you know them and who they are!
My father said to me once "if you don't like stereotypes stop living them."
The meaning of beauty is imperfection.Be more open to understanding different life styles.
Thats about the most Imperfect (aka beautiful) thing I have ever read
We can be more open with other people and open to different and lifestyles. Also we can think before we speak and put them In your shoes.
Know the person before you stereotype. You could also open yourself to others.
yes, i agree because if you or when you stereotype people you could hurt their feelings as well.
I know what you are talking about. I've been stereotyped tons of times and am still being stereotyped. What reason? For being Asian. I've gotten tired of people asking me is I speak Chinese, or if I'm related to a complete totally stranger(Asian) or if I can do real good math. Not every Asian is good at math. and Sure, I can speak Chinese but not all of us speak or language and no. I am not related to that Korean guy over there.
I agree. I think that you should talk about or judge someone before you know them or their background.
One way we could break stereotypes is we could talk to people before we stereotype. Another way we could break stereotypes is to put ourselves in the other persons shoes and think about what its like for them when people stereotype.
I understand that you need to get to know someone before judging them but I feel that that would be hard to stop and ask question because we have been raised to judge and jump to conclusions and its not a good thing but its also not a bad thing
We basically stereo type people we don't know because we feel like it's the right thing to do. It really isent, I have done it before and I hated it so I'm way more open now then like last year. Also I love this quote because it's so good. "Don't judge people! Unless you know them, then by all means. Judge away." ~ Connor Franta (my fav youtuber)
Honestly he is simply amazing. I'm happy we share something in common about someone so funny, but respectful.
To prevent or break stereotypes we could visit and meet people from other parts of the country to see if they are true or not. Another thing we could do is email someone you know in that area and ask f it is true or not. These two ideas could prevent or even break stereotypes.
Before you make a comment to someone think what your going to say before you say something. Don't judge someone on what they are doing,wearing,saying,etc because its all matter of opinion.
I think to break stereotypes we need to be more understanding about peoples differences. We also should try to put ourselves into other peoples shoes.
I think we can get rid of some if not most of the stereotypes by being more open and understanding of foreign or other lifestyles. This would make us less likely to stereotype someone who is different from us.
"I think if you give in and accept society's stereotypes, then you start thinking, 'I cannot dance till late at night because I'm 70.'"
Can you explain what you just said? I'm having a little trouble understanding.
I think she means, like an old person. More older people get stereotyped, because they can't dance, and do stuff younger people can. So maybe people look at them, and stereotype them bcuz of their age.
I think she's saying that some stereotypes are ok and we have to accept them. Also notice she was using quotation marks :)
we can break stereotypes by proving they are wrong.
we need to get to know the person before we make a stereotype about them
That was what I was gonna say!
You shouldn't judge someone until you know everything about them and what they have to go through everyday. You might see someone that you think you may never become friends with, but then they might end up being the person you may need the most in your life.
I totally agree with you Anna! I think it would so bad if I judged one of my best friends that is different. I would feel so bad if that happened!
That's a great way to say that Anna! If we were to judge someone without even knowing that person, we would probably say something that was untrue!
I think if there is a stereotype about someone and you know it isn't true, then you should tell everyone it isn't true instead of telling people it is true.
You should always assume rumors are false rather than assuming that they are true.
Scott thats such a good assumption! So many people get in arguments because they think that the rumors are true and most of the time they aren't true! What you said "Always assume rumors are false rather than assuming that they are true." is what needs to happen I think so many problems would be solved!
Just don't talk about people.
For a second, I thought you had said "Just don't talk to people" and I was like WHAT?!?!??! Anyways, I agree. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it. and why not just NOT start more stereotypes?
I think that people stereotype others because we fear what we don't know.. by stereotyping we give an unknown face a familiar one. We can break stereotypes if people have patience or courage to actually get to know someone. :)
Stereotypes can hurt other people. Think about what other people are going through. You never know if someone could have a family member that could have died.
I personally think that stereotypes help America and the rest of the world function because if we don't have stereotypes there would be nothing to talk about it and you wouldn't be different but I do admit that some stereotypes are bad and need to be stopped some of them can be hurtful and untrue but others can be true
stop talking bad about other stuff
I think rumors are huge part of stereotypes. If people could just take the time to get to know someone instead of just judging someone just because of something they heard from someone else.
Think about others before you speak
I think that a way to prevent stereotypes is to treat others the way you want to be treated because that almost sometimes never happen only a couple times it happens. :)
Don't Judge a person by how they dress or what they look like. Try talking to them say Hi here and there and maybe they could end up being your friend.
disney characters should be more raically diversed
What about the one in Princess and the frog?
I think that the way you can prevent stereotyping is to make more racial diverse movies so that it will influence young kids that watch them.
To stop stereotyping we need to put ourselves into there shoes, because you shouldn't stereotype someone if you don't know them.
I think that before you stereotype someone you need to get to know them. And you should think before you speak
There is really no point in making stereotypes in the first place. If you don't know something a group or individual you have no facts to back up your opinion. To put it simply, if you don't anything, what is there to talk about or to hate?
Even if you have already stereotyped someone without wanting too if you don't know anything about them you should go into the conversation as if the person is just like you and isn't any different.
I personally think that some people our age don't know when to stop talking. If you hear a rumor, what's the real reason of spreading it. We all need to stop and think before we speak!
Hey guys, I actually need help trying to find ways to break the "Teens Playing Video Games" stereotype. Its a proven fact that 99% of all teen play video games, but adults think we play violent video games and become rude and or violent. Actually its also a proven fact that playing video games improves communications skills and learning skills. 76% of teens that play video games, report helping others, and 44% of teen learn more about (example) the revolutionary war, by playing assassins creed 3. and for teens who play GTA can learn about societies problems. So I need some help, please comment ideas to spread the news to break the stereo type that Teens Play Video Games.
Teens playing video games is going to be a hard stereotype to break because video games are fun. With video games you can do things that you have always wanted to do and find out what would happen if you do that. For example trying to jump a train with a motorcycle gets you killed and then you learn not to do that in real life.
A lot of adults think that teens play video games literally all the time, too. If you could get ahold of some statistics of how long the average teenager plays video games, that could break part of the stereotype, too.
I agree Austin. Parents do think we will be violent when we grow up. We actually could get challenge points(Homework in HIstory) by playing Assassins Creed IV Black Flag! I have played it and it really helped me understand the revolutionary war much better.
Have yall herd of the saying treat others the way you want to be treated because that is a powerful saying and then it's a way to make friends.
#stereotyping I believe that to try to prevent stereotyping is to teach the little kids. If we teach them, they will know and won't do it as much
I think that before you start thinking and stereotyping someone put yourself in there shoes. You probably wouldn't want anyone judging you on the way you look when they don't even know you. We could try to stop stereotyping before you actually know who they are.
One thing we could do is we could really try hard to stop ourselves from doing it. We could also tell other people to stop when they are doing it.
I think that we should be nice! To do that, we should think twice before we say something. Also we shouldn't judge people of how they look or act.
I think a way to prevent stereotyping is to go around and if u hear someone stereotype someone put them in jail.( I know this cant happen but why not say it)
If we are going to help stop stereotyping then before we actually do it we should really get to know the person. They could be so much different than you thought.
I strongly agree with you :)
I think that even doing a kind thing for a person who prevent stereotyping. If you hold a door open for someone maybe they will stop teasing you and picking on you. If you do this it could stop stereotyping.
I think we should always put ourselves in somebody's shoes before we stereotype them. Maybe they are having a ruff day and they are acting strange don't just judge him/her, ask if they are alright. It will make them feel better and you will feel good too.
Maybe if we stop running shows like "Backyard oil, Duck Dynasty, And more shows just there to show stereotypes," we would maybe not think of others like that.
Before we stereotype people we need to think of ways how it could be harmful to the people we are stereotyping. Also you wouldn't want someone to say something bad about you so don't say anything bad about other people.
Think before you speak and don't judge anyone based upon their look and race
bad things happen when you start sterotypin folks. so don't do it.
What's the point of stereotyping a place you don't know about anyway? For all you know, the things you think might be the exact opposite. For example, when you said we all live on farms, some of us got angry as can be, but I just thought you were clueless of Alabamian lifestyles. Most of the people I know live in houses/apartments, but when I went to D.C., I saw a farm every four miles or so, so it's kind of acceptable.
To prevent harmful stereotypes, I think we should have good attitute about diffrences, and don't judged the people before you know them.
Why are Northeners the greatest people on EARTH??????
because we are just that cool up here in the north, Marquise
Why thank you! But really you guys are pretty similar. I've got to say it would be fun in Alabama with the warm weather, vs. our 2 feet of snow. (:
Let them talk. who cares what they say.
I don't think we understand just how much stereotypes can hurt people. There was a guy who lived in Opelika, our "neighbor" city, who killed himself because of bulling, he seemed to so light and happy one day but the next he was gone. Just like people who have lost someone close to them, can be described as sad and lonely, its not always true.
Do you like stereotypes or nah ?
Not really, most of them are negative.
No I don't like stereotypes because even if they're good they can still hurt people, maybe not in the ways that you think of but maybe in other ways that you really haven't thought about before.
To prevent stereotyping I think that you have to stop stereotyping people yourself and then people will catch on then if you see somebody stereotyping then tell them to stop, say it's not true then walk up to the person who is being stereotyped and say hi and start a conversation.
Don't judge if they're a stranger unless you wanna be cruel If you know the person pretty well then think of what you're going to say before you say it , it'll hurt someone.
Don't ever judge people whether you know them or not. The other person probably wont like it.
A lt of movies and TV shows promote stereotyping. To try and stop this we could try to make it so that we are more careful about what we put in TV shows and movies. We could also not everything that we see and hear until we are certain that it's true.
One way to stop stereotyping is if you see somebody else being stereotyped then you can intervene and stop them from stereotyping the other person.
If people would just get to know the individual from a different culture or race, instead of just grouping them into a stereotype, then maybe there would be no stereotypes
I think that one of the only reasons some people stereotype is because we don't have a good experience with other race or we don't interact with them well.
I think that it would be better if people did not think so much about others looks. That can change what everyone thinks about that one individual. People are more than just what you see on the outside.
I think that a way to break stereotypes is to think that everyone has something good or nice about them. And to spend more time with different people.
We or the school could make a stereotyping video and show what stereotyping does and how we can stop it. We can make the stereotyping video just like the bulling video we watch every year.
limited contact with diverse persons is the problem.We need to get used to other people if more of the same are coming over. What happens when half of our population is filled with middle eastern, black, mexican backgrounds? We need to end the creation of disney and other related cartoons with stereotyping
I think if you don't know the person then you should not do that. You also dont know everything that is going on in the life so it could it could really hurt there feelings
To prevent stereotyping maybe people should get to know who the people are and what they're all about before you start judging them.
To stop stereotyping we have to imagine what will happen if you give them that label
When I'm out shopping/in public and I'm bored, I usually glance at people and think about one compliment about them. Then move on to someone else. Its a good habit and away to pass time and be positive!
I think that if we think of something nice about the person that you would usually stereotype the person because you are being nice to them. If you do that you will not be thinking of the stereotype. When you do that you could make there day by not staring at them in a stereotypical way.
One way to brake stereotyping is to not just let it happen and step up and tell someone or help someone that is being stereotyping.
I think we should except different people with different beliefs, different colors, and different ethnicity's and spread peace throughout the world.
Hi again. Stereotyping/judging is natural but that doesn't means its right. I say that from experience.
*Be respectful.*Be clear.*Check your spelling.
