Storyboard Text

  • Stereotype
  • I am not a "terrorist."
  • I am not a "fast runner."
  • I am not living the "American Dream."
  • To Kill a Mockingbird Example
  • But why Mrs. Merriweather?
  • They live in absolute squalor. Jean- Louise, those people are trouble.
  • To Kill a Mockingbird Example
  • It smells here
  • I wish we lived closer to town and had a nicer home to live in.
  • Whittington-Walsh (2017) describes a stereotype as a generalized, over simplified, judgement of a person, gender, race etc. Stereotypes can lead to racial discrimination as people already have a bias towards that person or group etc. and groups them into the stereotypical category they have already created about that person or group etc.
  • In Harper Lee's (1960) novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, an example of racism is when Mrs. Merriweather states, " Out there in J. Grimes Everett's land there's nothing but sin and squalor." (264) This is a racist comment because she's implying that the people who live there live in terrible conditions and are all up to no good. This is also a stereotype as she is generalizing the entire population that lives there as "trouble and filthy."
  • In To Kill a Mockingbird, written by Harper lee (1960), the African American households are held in a different part of the town then where the Caucasian households are. Because the African American's are seen as an inferior race to the Caucasian race they are forced to live separated from the "superior" race, which is by the dump.
