Our culture is filled with more stereotypes than we would like to think. The United States as we know today has a corrupt government. We like to
think that we have gotten over discriminating against the slaves and that we treat women equally so we don't discriminate against other people but
people still discriminate against other people.
It's almost impossible for anyone to form an association with someone else without discriminating against something. Fat people are still
discriminated against. People with disabilities are discriminated against and so are tech people. People who are interested in technology are often
called dorks, geeks, or, other names.
Whenever we watch a movie we expect to find some insight from the movie. All movies do is display stereotypes of people facing real life events that
happen all the time. Movies discriminate against every kind of person, blacks, women, and whites. The movie industry is the most racist/sexist
industry in the entire world, because of the way that it portrays other people, and, the movie industry tries to make dirty things seem glamorous. At
school, whether we like to believe it or not, people are labeled. People are labeled at school according to what they do. The current society we
live in likes to discriminate against people for fun.
Discrimination hasn't ended yet. They are now doing what I call covert discrimination. They are trying to make it seem like it's not
discrimination but when it really is but they're trying to hide behind the current laws so that it doesn't seem that bad.
Current civil rights activists will have to step up if they are going to get the current society we live in to be a lot more tolerant of people. The
problem of discrimination has grown to epic proportions. I do believe that certain groups of the federal government let discrimination augment in the
First, the CIA. I believe the CIA was trying to manipulate the civil rights movement for their own gain.
Second, the DOD, for, trying to define what makes a person look suspicious.
Third, congress is responsible for the legislation that got passed that allowed discrimination to continue to exist. The legislation never really
ended discrimination, but, it only ended certain types of discrimination, like discrimination against blacks and womens and disabilities. However,
people like to stereotype everything these days. No one seems to be doing anything about that.
Stereotypes help people relate to certain things. It's a shame that the current culture we have believes that they are acceptable.
