Many people don’t really know the true meaning of being prejudice. Prejudice to me is when someone dislikes another because of the way they may look, by their skin color, or even the type of religion they worship. Being Prejudice has lots of negative effects on people. For example, when you dislike someone because of the way they may look it could really make that person feel bad, and could even lower their self-esteem. By being prejudice it could lead to violence, including bullying, fighting, or even killing.
Stereotyping is when you assume something about someone without really getting to know them. It’s somewhat almost the same thing as prejudice, because they both involve disliking someone because of the way they may look. There are many different types of stereotypes. One example of a stereotype is that all African American people are ghetto. This is very wrong because all African Americans aren’t like that. Some are doctors, lawyers, actors, song writers, authors, and even school teachers. Many of them could be people that others look up to or even idolize. Another stereotype is that all blondes are airheads or stupid. That’s not entirely true because there are some blonde girls that are really smart and talented. An example of a talented blonde would be Reese Witherspoon; she is very talented and successful.
Honestly I don’t know too much about World War II. I do however know a lot about the Holocaust. The Holocaust was a period when Nazi soldiers came in and took Jews from their homes and sent them to concentration camps. During the Holocaust many Jews lost their lives. It was very sad, because many times they were forced to watch their loved ones get killed, and sometimes they would be ...

... they did was messed up in so many ways. For one, I don’t think that the Germans really know why they did what they did. Even if they were forced to do it they had their own mines and it is such a thing called freedom of speech. No one should ever have to go through what the Jews had to go through. It was very heartbreaking to have to read this book because it was true, and this happened to real people. It’s nothing that you could forget just because it was so bad. It has affected me in so many ways. Now I appreciate that I had clothes on my back, and I have a house to live in. I’m glad that I don’t have people bossing me around telling me when I can and can’t sleep and when I can and can’t eat. I would like to learn about the Holocaust even more just to learn what really happened to the Jews. I want to know the real story, and not just what people tell me about it.

- Novel’s Thought The curious incident of the dog in the night-time is a novel by Mark Haddon. The story is based on the perspective of a smart fifthteen-year-old autistic boy, who includes all sorts of clever visuals to enhance his narrative. But Haddon says the novel is not just about disability: “ It’s about what you can do with your words and what it means to communicate with someone in a book.” Haddon has never used the word autism in fiction. Christopher Boone narrated the novel after finding the neighbor’s poodle, Wellington, with a garden fork.... [tags: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time]

Whether if its on a mp3 player, or to be more specific the ipod, or even the Mac book, which I am currently using to type this journal, or the iphone, which currently isn’t even on the official Singapore market, but some still get it illegally or from other countries. Apple has placed itself into pop culture, from how ipods and subsequent trends like the pod casts are created. Apple has managed to market its mp3 players to become renowned around the world as the best selling, or at least the classiest and simplest of mp3 players.... [tags: Marketing Writing Journal]

- Night and Fog I must say that this film is very traumatizing. There are some images in this film that will be burned and scarred into my mind for as long as I live. I have seen many holocaust films, but no one was as near as dramatic and depicting as Night and Fog. However I did like the theme of this movie. It is very sad but yet realistic. Our minds are murky and dull. We tend to only remember the important situation in our lives. Yet we don’t remember the importance of our own history. I say OUR history be cause we all are human beings on this earth.... [tags: Film Movie]

- In the final months of my sophomore year at Slidell High School, I was excelling in many of my classes. I made the decision to enroll in A.P. English for my junior year. I was extremely eager for my love of literature to begin. The teacher who convinced me to join AP English was named Dr. Schneider. She had long blonde hair as well as a nasally voice with a thick Saint Bernard accent. Dr. Schneider was an all-around fun teacher.
