Paragraph 1) This piece exemplifies “the other” through the narrators feelings of oppression. "You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I’ll rise.". This shows that the narrator is still defiant even though she is oppressed. This next quote again exemplifies the feeling of oppression the narrator experiences. "Did you want to see me broken? Bowed head and lowered eyes? Shoulders falling down like teardrops, Weakened by my soulful cries?". Paragraph 2) Throughout To Kill A Mockingbird black people are oppressed. Black people are just one of the many oppressed minorities still fighting otherness.
Paragraph 1) This piece exemplifies “the other” by showing how so many are othered through hate crimes or incidents. Controversial statements by the president such as when he said "They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists" about Mexicans have made racists feel justified in committing hate crimes. Because of the spike in hate crimes organizations have been creating databases of hate crimes, and "the fact that different organisations nationwide feel there is a need to compile a database of hate incidents is a sign of the times in itself". Paragraph 2) In To Kill A Mockingbird people are also othered through hate crimes. Tom Robinson's wife had stones thrown at her by Bob Ewell.
Paragraph 1) This piece exemplifies “the other” by blatantly shoving in our faces images of equality and diversity that society shouldn't need in order to see the otherness in the world around them. The Shepard Fairy image of a muslim woman wearing a American flag as her hijab shows that Muslims can call America their home and shouldn't be judged on their religion. This shows that we should judge people on the merits of their individual actions instead of the stereotype of their religion. Paragraph 2) In To Kill A Mockingbird there are also conflicting viewpoints on diversity and race. Some citizens of Maycomb are racist and ignorant, whereas others are accepting and understand the importance of diversity race and ideas. Atticus understands that change is good, but in order to have change you need ideas that are different.
Paragraph 1) This article expresses otherness in the form of Islamophobia. Back when Trump was running for president, there was the San Bernardino terror attack. In response to this attack Trump called for a complete "ban on Muslims entering the U.S.". A few Muslims are terrorists, so therefore all Muslims are a threat. Trump said that all muslims are bad, saying that "Islam hates us". Islam is a very peaceful religion, but because of the actions of a few people, the entire religion is vilified. Paragraph 2) In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird black people are also othered. Many Maycomb residents don't trust them, and there is no reason for this.
