Think that a group that we refer to as outsiders are Islamic people. We associate them with terror even though most Islamic people aren't terrorists. This has become a social stereotype even if it is an unfair one.
Life could be very hard. They could be shunned because of the stereotypes. Some challenges they face are making a life for themselves when people are scared of them. Also the language barrier.
That is an amazing example. I think that no matter what some people will always label them as terrorists, even though most of them aren't.
I agree even if some people look like an islamic person they are immediately judged.
It sucks that they can't freely practice their religion. It's understandable why they are feared though.
Some "Others" in our society today could be immigrants. Life would be difficult to adapt to especially moving from a different culture. Some challenges that they likely face would be being able to speak the new language, acclimating to the new culture and ways of life, and getting to know people who hey can trust.
You're right, I never thought about immigrants. It's true, they are considered as Others.
Some outsiders from normal people are like the president or any famous people. I feel like it would be pretty lonely and not fulfilling. Especially for celebrities some challenges would be not being able to trust people or know who your real friends are.
That is so true! Great compassion!
Some others might be the KKK and the presidents. As well as ISIS and other racial groups. In our society, some others would probably psychopaths and sociopaths.
I didn't think of psychopaths and sociopaths that's a good one.
I wouldn't have thought about psychopaths and sociopaths. That's a very good point
I think some of the outsiders in our society are those who are poor. They tend to be different with their thoughts, what they wear, what the do, etc. A lot of times they can't afford new clothes, water to shower everyday, or other basic things. It's hard for them to fit in because most of our society wants the newest most popular things and they don't have the opportunity to get those so as a result they can be pushed away.
Great example of poor people. I agree that they get shunned from the rest of us in a way. It's hard sometimes though to tell if they really are homeless or not.
That is a great example. We definitely tend to push them away and it's sad.
That is very true, especially how you said that people want the newest of everything.
Yah, the homeless are definitely consider as different than us. I never thought of that.
I liked how you said that if you don't have the newest or most popular things that people will push you away. That's a really good point
The Others in our society are mostly the minorities. LGBT groups, muslims, and immigrants are some. It's generally not great to be them. They are singled out and are given less rights. For LGBT people it would be not being able to marry who you want, muslims being criticized for some extremists, and immigrants aren't welcomed when they come.
I agree that all those groups are singled out and given less rights.
Nice comparison especially for the times.
Some outsiders or "Others" is the President, famous people, really rich people, The Kardashians. Life for them is probably super crazy and stressful. They have so many people watching them and pointing out there flaws.
Their***. I agree i think it would be really stressful.
I agree the more famous people are the more they are watched for mistakes.
I agree their life would be stressful always being watched or having everything pointed out
Some others in our society could be the president and past presidents of the United States. I think they would face challenges every day because they would have so much pressure on them all of the time. Also none of their life would be just their life it would be publicized for everyone to see even after they aren't president anymore.
Way to think outsides the box Sami 😂
Yes, I agree famous and popular people have lots of advantages but they have a very public life.
I think some outsiders could be immigrants because they come to the U.S and people immidiatly discriminate them because where they are from and what others have done. Life as an outsider would probably be really lonely and hard because nobody accepts you. Trying to find a job and switching the language would be a couple of challenges that they would have to overcome
I agree changing your language would be a huge challenge to overcome.
Also they don't really have much of an education so it's hard for them to find a job.
I agree it would be hard to be an immigrant in a place where everyone discriminates you and makes you feel low
The "nerds" are a classic example of others in the society. They probably are more independent. They are made fun of a lot and are joked about a lot.
Stereotypes like this make me wonder if the "outsiders" feel that they are shunned or if they are happy at least having friends like themselves. It's sad that we shun them though. It's happened in our society for so many years though that it is just what we all have grown up doing.
Nerds do get it hard, but they will soon end up being the bosses of our corporations.
We see a lot of that stuff on television and stuff, but I don't really see it in our school.
I'm with you that "nerds" are made fun of and joked about.
I feel like one major outsider is our society is the homeless. Some people really frown upon them and treat them like they are not even human. And most of the time they were forced to be homeless and it was out of their control. They probably live day to day and just try to scrape by the best they can. And there are a lot of challenges such as getting food and water.
I agree. Too many people say they won't give them anything because they might be fake.
I feel bad about those who are actually homeless, but the feeling is lossed because most are fake.
A different group I'm stand-offish to would be the amish, hudorites, or Mennonites. They live such a different life style and I don't know how to talk to them because I don't want to offend them. Also, it almost seem like they don't want to talk to me or someone from my culture, because they don't know how or don't want to. Outsiders would face issues with communicating with the "normal" society.
I agree that they get excluded a lot due to their community/beliefs.
I agree with you that it is hard to talk to them because you don't want to offend them
Some outsiders in our society would be immigrants not matter where they are from. Life for these people can be a challenge, for example it could be hard to find a job sometimes. Also, it could be a challenge to adjust to our society since our society is really different in some ways.
I agree, it is hard to adjust to this society if you are from another country.
It would also be a challenge to make friends because people don't like that they take American jobs.
An outsider could be immigrants. It may be hard to figure out our customs. Some challenges are the "others" might be rejected and beaten till the point they may leave because they may not like our ways.
I get jealous when it comes to sports because I do work very hard for what I want and want to achieve in sports. And when I see people who have it come more naturally it's hard to see and sometimes hard to not get jealous of.
I could see our president being an outsider in our society. He faces challenges everyday, whether it's passing a law or declaring war. He will not fit into an everyday group because of his power that he has.
I feel like emo people are kinda like outsiders to the popular people. They know they are different, but many of them don't care. They get made fun of for the things they like and the music they listen to. They might face not being able to get certain jobs or responsibilities.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
