Item 1: Stereotypical American 

Bias: stereotype 

Analysis: The picture above is of the stereotypical American. We are portrayed as fat, patriotic, and into greasy foods. The image shows a cowboy hat, which puts the term Westerner into an object. There is a hands-free cell phone in the man’s ear, which probably represents how often we are on the phone. The flag shirt shows how we are made out to be proud of our free country and what the flag stands for. The burger and drink represents how often we eat unhealthy foods. This image is stereotypical because there are some Americans who eat healthy, are not patriotic and are definitely not fat.

 Item 2: New York City Bus Makes Women Ride In Back

If you’re a female and you happen to hop on the B110 bus in Brooklyn, you’ll be likely to feel as if you just stepped into a middle east controlled region of the world, that’s because that particular city bus requires that women ride in the back and men ride upfront.

While the B110 bus is open to the public under an agreement with the city the actual vehicle is operated by a private company that services two Hasidic neighborhoods. Under Hasidic rules physical contact in public between the sexes is not allowed and therefore they are separated whenever possible.

Bias: Gender discrimination: Bus is a public mean of transportation so it is equal to everybody. However, in this case, they express a profound discrimination between men and women and they let women have a seat in the back and give permission of the front seat for men.

Analysis:   Discrimination about the physical contact: In the past, especially in the eastern countries, people are not allowed to have physical contact in public place no matter how close is their relationship. But this concept has been changing dramatically in the modern time especially in western countries yet in this bus route, people still hold a old-fashioned way of thinking about the contact of the men and women. As a result, they find ways to separate men and women as much as possible.

Item 3: Scapegoating

Bias: Scapegoating

Analysis: While two men in suits-two businessmen are having meal, they are deliberating each other that they are getting credit. They feel happy and satisfied because whether they are successful or not, both of them are still safe. They are planning to blame sins for other persons who are innocent. In the modern society, corruption’s social evils being condemed.

entry 3: NGUYEN XUAN HOA

Item 1:

  • Stereotype

  • Analysis: Sometimes, things we do are not like what most other people are thinking of. Because of some general perceptions, they stereotype us as the ways they suppose to be. For example, people from Asian nations are often stereotyped as people who love science subjects especially Maths or people who dye their hair are regarded as the ones who are looking for attention… In short, people are often being stereotyped everywhere regardless of their race, their complexion or their nationality.

Item 2:

A black person answers a newspaper ad for an apartment. The landlord tells him that apartment has already been rented. It turns out that the apartment was not rented, and the landlord later rents it to a white applicant who answers the same ad.  

Source: http://www.state.sc.us/schac/case_examples_of_discrimination.htm

  • Discrimination

  • Analysis: It is clear that the landlord treats the black and the white differently. He just wants the white to hire his house. Therefore, we can see race discrimination here, which should not has in human society. In some ways, people are all the same so they must be treated equally.

Item 3:


“….Nhiều người cho rằng đồng tính luyến ái là do ảnh hưởng lối sống của phương Tây. Tuy nhiên theo tiến sĩ Blanc điều này không đúng. Ngoài ra, sự du nhập của đạo Cơ đốc càng làm cho thành kiến đối với người đồng tính càng nặng nề hơn. Hơn nữa, hầu như các nước Đông Nam Á đều có thành kiến nặng nề với người đồng tính trừ Thái Lan, đất nước không bị đô hộ bởi phương Tây trong quá khứ..Nhiều người coi đồng tính luyến ái là không bình thường thậm chí là bệnh hoạn đặc biệt là ở nông thôn. Do đó hành vi âu yếm của hai người cùng giới có thể làm cho nhiều người cảm thấy ghê tởm.Nhiều bậc cha mẹ cảm thấy bị tổn thương, kinh ngạc, giận dữ, mắc cỡ hoặc hoang mang khi biết con mình đồng tính. Một số người tìm cách thay đổi con mình, trong khi một số người khác thì không quan tâm đến con nữa… “

  • Prejudice

  • Analysis: Some people who lack knowlegde of homosexuality often have bad attitudes toward gay people. They consider homosexuality as a disease and it needs to get rid of our society. However, in fact, it is totally not true. Instead of prejudicing gay or lesbian, we should help them to make their life better.

Item #3: 

“Quyền” đánh vợ, ngoại tình của đàn ông và “nghĩa vụ” xin lỗi, chịu đòn của phụ nữ

Chị Lương Thị Thúy (HN) là công chức của một cơ quan bộ. Ở cơ quan chị là một cán bộ giỏi, cư xử đúng mực, ở gia đình chị là người vợ, người mẹ đảm đang, chịu thương chịu khó. Nhưng người tinh ý sẽ thấy hiếm hoi nụ cười xuất hiện trên gương mặt chị và thỉnh thoảng trên mặt chị lại có vết hằn đỏ của 5 đầu ngón tay đã được làn phấn dày che bớt. Chị Thúy thường xuyên bị chồng cho ăn bạt tai chỉ vì chị… quá ham học.

Ngày chị cầm quyết định cơ quan cử đi học thạc sĩ về bàn với chồng, chồng chị đã nặng nhẹ mặt mày không đồng ý chỉ vì lý do đơn giản: phụ nữ không cần học nhiều. Nhưng sau khi chị Thúy vẫn quyết tâm đi học, thì suốt quãng thời gian đó anh chồng nghĩ ra đủ chiêu trò hành hạ nhằm làm vợ nản chí. Nhiều hôm chị Thúy ngồi học mà nước mắt cứ chảy lã chã vì nghĩ đến cảnh con đỏ mắt chờ mẹ đón ở trường, còn bố vẫn đang zô zô với bạn ở quán bia.

Cao trào của sự việc là cái ngày chị Thúy nhận bằng thạc sĩ. Ngay tối đó, anh chồng gọi vợ vào buồng và túm tóc tát cho vợ hai cái tối tăm mặt mũi. “Cô đừng tưởng cái bằng thạc sĩ của cô là to mà khinh thằng này nhé”- anh ta tuyên bố. Khi chị Thúy kể lại câu chuyện này với mẹ chồng những mong bà chia sẻ thì mẹ chồng chị lại nói “Lỗi là ở con, con phải xin lỗi nó. Thử hỏi có thằng đàn ông nào nó chịu được cô vợ học cao hơn nó”. Còn mẹ đẻ chị thì cho rằng chức năng cao cả nhất của người vợ là làm vui lòng chồng con, chứ không phải học. “Đồng nát thì về câu Lôm. Con gái học lắm, nỏ mồm thì về ở với cha thôi con ạ ”, bà khuyên.

– Prejudice

– The woman in this story is treated unequally by her family because of a backward opinion that women have to follow men and have the responsibility of caring for their husbands and their children. They are even not allowed to study higher or have higher status than their husbands.

Identifying Bias

ITEM 1:

Source: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread502011/pg1

–       Discrimination  (racism discrimination)

–       Analysis : It is clear that colored people suffer from the discrimination in public places like where they are allowed to drink water. And in this picture, their water tank is very small and dirty. Because white people believe that colored people do not have the same class with them and they just receive poor services.

ITEM 2:

Source : http://mappingpolitics.blogspot.com/2009/07/for-f.html

–       Prejudice (gender prejudice)

–       Analysis : Men, mostly, were working and earning the income, while women inside were the ones busy working for the daily housework such as cooking, washing and taking care children. In this advertisement, the woman stands behind the man and the script  “the Chef does everything but cook- that’s what wives are for!” shows the men’s opinion about their wives duty.

ITEM 3:

Source: http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/greenslade/2008/nov/24/week

–       Bias caused by emotive language

Entry 3: Identifying Bias

Item 1:

This independence of Britain’s educational institutions is most noticeable in universities.  They make their own choice of who to accept on their courses. There is no right of entry to university for anybody. Universities normally select students on the basis of A – level results and an interview. Those with better exam grades are more likely to be accepted.

Source: British education in the book of an introduction to British Studies for second year students

The bias: discrimination

The analysis: the short text shows readers about kind of students the British universities will choose or allow on their courses. Normally, they select A – level students and may consider students with their better exam grades. It means, they ignore or don’t select students who are not good at exam grades and having no the basic of A – level. Therefore, the standard of choosing students the British universities apply, reflects the discrimination on student’s study level.

 

Item 2:

 

Source: http://www.michellehenry.fr

The bias: stereotype

The analysis:  the picture shows a lot of popular images in the United Kingdom such as:  royal families, guardsman in red uniform, weather, welsh…. All these images remind viewers of symbols of a traditional British society. That means viewers are able to connect to Britain through this picture.

Item 3:

Trang http://tintuctrongngay.net.vn

Hà Nội: Cố qua đường ray, cụ già bị tàu cán

Dân Việt – Sự việc xảy ra vào khoảng 11h trưa nay, 11.11, tại đoạn đường ray đối diện số nhà 354 Lê Duẩn, Hà Nội. Nạn nhân tử vong tại chỗ.

Trang http://www.tienphong.vn

Tàu hỏa cán chết cụ già

TPO – Khoảng 11h hôm nay (11-11), tàu SE20 (tuyến Đà Nẵng – Hà Nội) đâm chết một cụ già tại đường ray trên địa bàn phố Lê Duẩn (đoạn trước số nhà 354 Lê Duẩn, quận Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội).

The bias: assumption

The bias is caused by emotive language

The first title shows the reason for an old man’s accident – the old man was hit by train because of crossing the railway. Moreover, the title extremely evokes the reader’s curiosity what is consequence of accident to the old man. More important, the readers think of this title that the old man himself was blamed for his accident. However, the second title refers to the factor – train and the consequence of accident to the old man – the old man’s death. Therefore, the readers strongly understand that the train was blamed for the old man’s death. In other word, the title emphasize on the train’s mistake on the dead man.
