Transcript of Crash Presentation
I wonder why we don't start
to question our judgment. gangster HOODLUM IGNORANT TRUTH TRUTH Daniel, a locksmith is none of those things.
His main focus at all times is the protection of
his family. LAWN-BOY YOU CAN LAUGH. illiterate Let me re-itterate “ Are we dressed like gang-bangers? Huh? No. Do we look threatening? No. Fact, if anybody should be scared around here, it's us: We're the only two black faces surrounded by a sea of over-caffeinated white people, patrolled by the trigger-happy LAPD. So you tell me, why aren't we scared?”
(Anthony) Well...we all do it. But, how valid are our
assumptions? But, how valid are the
the assumptions that we all
make? Stereotypes Farhad is a storekeeper that is just
trying to get by in America. He is not
Arabic (a person's first assumption
when they see him). Later on, he
appears tosomewhat fit his stereotype. lazy Based on assumption, NOT fact! So you ask, how can we get rid of stereotypes? well... Stereotypes will never completely disappear, but there are things we can do to reduce
and alleviate the power of stereotypes. According to Rebecca Comage, Diversity Education and Community Building Assistant Director, “When people come to the table open- minded and willing to test their beliefs, amazing things can happen! My peer- educators call it getting out of your comfort zone and into your learning zone. This allows people to be the educator and in a position to learn as well. This is how communication is strengthened and stereotypes and perceptions are broken.” so I encourage you to meet someone new and look past what is assumed and is not FACT. Because these... ...can be ridiculous. TRUTH When given a chance to sell fugitives to his “boss” for 500 dollars apiece he takes the better route and sets them free. Anthony has grown from a juvenile into a person who decides to put the fate of other peoples’ lives before money. Works Cited Crash. Dir. Paul Haggis. Perf.
