Transcript of The Outsiders
"We're poorer than the Socs and the middle class."
"I reckon we're wilder, too."
"Greasers are almost like hoods; we steal things and drive old souped-up cars and hold up gas stations and have a gang fight once in a while."
The Socs were the rich kids. They lived on the West Side. The Socs were always getting drunk and looking for fights with greasers.
"I really couldn't see what Socs would have to sweat about- good grades, good cars, good girls, madras and Mustangs and Corvaires- Man, I thought, if I had worries like that I'd consider myself lucky."
Examples of Stereotypes
A stereotype is a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing
Stereotypes in the current day
Stereotypes are often confused with prejudices, because, like prejudices, a stereotype is based on a prior assumption. Stereotypes are often created about people of specific cultures or races.
-Men are strong and do all the work
-Women aren't as smart as a man
-Girls aren't good at sports
-Guys are messy and unclean
-All irish people are drunk and eat potatoes
-All whites are obese, lazy, and dim-witted
-All arabs and muslims are terrorist
-All blonds are unintelligent
-All teenagers are rebels
-All children don't enjoy healthy food
-Only anorexic women can become models
The greasers are stereotyped that they belong to gangs, have long greasy hair, that they stick together and have each other's back, they are criminals, they dropout of school, they're poor, they're "hoods", they drive junky cars, they start fights, they smoke and drink, and they carry weapons around
How we feel about stereotypes and prejudice
Why we have to stop stereotypes and How we can stop them
Stereotyping in our society
A stereotype is used to catergorize a group of people. People don't understand that type of person, so they put them into classifications, thinking that everyone who is that needs to be like that, or anyone who acts like their classifications is one.
Jocks and Preps pick on the Nerds and the Geeks.
Even if the stereotype is correct in some cases, constantly putting someone down based on your preconceived perceptions will not encourage them to succeed.
Stereotyping can also lead people to live lives driven by hate, and can cause the victims of those stereotypes to be driven by fear.
Prejudice is a preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.
Prejudice creates ignorance, allows the development of racism, denies opportunities to the victims of prejudice and limits the experiences and perspective of those showing the prejudice.
Stereotypes is just another way to bully someone, to make them feel less about themselves. It puts a label on them that can rarely be changed.
Good vs Bad
Stereotypes and prejudice are mean and can affect people greatly. These "labels" that we give people are just thought up because of something that person did, has, does, etc.
By getting to know people and giving them an educated impression on how they are and not what the assume to be.
The socs are stereoetyped that they are rich, have good educations, good opportunities, go to college, wear madras shirts, drive nice cars, don't fight fair, they are cool (to the point of not feeling anything), they jump greasers, and that they think that they are better than ohers.
