A family was going out to lunch after Sunday mass. When their food came to their table they prayed. A nearby person who heared they praying asked them to stop. She said she was an Atheist and did not like have religion shoved down her throat. Nerby people old her to mine her own buisness and if she did not like it she could leave. The person that asked the family to stop praying apoligizs and says that se cant hadle people trying to convert her when they are not. Some people just say block it out by covering her ears or walk away but she can't say stop praying. This video shows how people can be"othered" just by what they belive in. 2. In To Kill a Mockingbird Tom was "othered" by maycomb becuse of his skin color. White people discriminated blacks because of their skin not by their character which is unfair just like in this video. People have the write to pray when and where ever.
Bill Russel was an out standing basketball player. He won 11 NBA chapionships and was named MVP many times. Though there seemed to be a problem. Him and his teammates were being discriminated. Many of the Celtics fans that use to go to the games and fill up the seats were not. People said the Celtics were to black and the fans wanted to see white plyer not black players.The National Basketball Association (NBA) is a black league. There is no question about that. Black players constitute a majority of the players in the league, representing 76.3% of players in the league as of 2013. Black players are the face of the league; LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, and Carmelo Anthony, among others, are the premier stars of the league and bring in massive amounts of revenue for the association as a whole. "It’s a black league, and has been for many years now — but this has not always been the case. The NBA had, and has, been changing its racial identity for many years now, and it can all be linked back to the first emergence of black basketball superstars in the 1960s". "Although he was not the first black player in the league, Bill Russell managed to first bring the race issue to the forefront of the NBA by way of his superstardom". These two quotes showed that white fans did not like seeing the "other" race be better than their own. 2. Tom Robinso had this problem when he was going a against a white jury. He was discrimnated because he was black and all the white people in the jury thought he lied about not raping Ms. Ewell.
Three African American women worked for NASA. People never took their ideas seriously or even reconized they were there for mainly two reasons. They were black and they were women. Al Harrison: "Here at NASA we all pee the same color". This quote shows that everyone is equal and has the same rights. Just because they were women did not mean they were stupid of non itelligent. Al Harrison: "We get to the peak together, or we don't get there at all". This qute shows you can achive anything unless you work together as a team and appreticate each other. 2. Tom Robison in To Kill a Mockingbird was othered by his town because he was black man being accused of raping a white women. Tom was innocent because their was no possible way he could rape because one of his arms was non functional, but since he was a black man going against a white jury he was guilty snd sentenced to death.
