People believe and follow the system instead of changing it. Keith Osajima states in his essay “Internalized Oppression and Culture of Silence”: “The overall impact of internalized oppression is that the oppressed become resigned to their situation and do not look critically at it” (154). In another word, people who are being oppressed by the society or culture will not resist against the issue, but instead running away from it. Why do people believe myths and stereotype as part of them? First of all, people who are internalize oppressed believe that they are too weak and not have the ability to challenge the issue.

However, while Arthur Dimmesdale dealt with his self-inflicted punishment, he never lost his reputation with the town when it came out that he was most likely Pearl’s father.
