ENTRY 3

Identifying Bias

ITEM 1:

http://www.buzzle.com/articles/stereotype-examples.htm.

 

– Stereotype

– Analysis: The picture implies that working with the computers so much results in bad eyes. Actually, not all people working with the computers have bad eyes and not all people who have bad eyes are ones using so much computers.

ITEM 2:

– Scapegoating

– Analysis: In World Cup 2010, England team was defeated by German team which was full of verve, self-belief and good techniques. However, England and many newspapers were blaming the referee and linesman for not allowing an England goal to have made the scores 2-2. In fact, England team did not win because of their poor performance.

ITEM 3:

  1. Hi Xuan !!!
    – I have to say that I’m deeply impressed by your 2nd item. It’s a basic symbol of scapegoating in sport.
    – However, I would like you to take the analysis of item 1 into consideration. In my opinion, the clause ” Actually, not all people working with the computers have bad eyes and not all people who have bad eyes are ones using so much computers.” should be changed into ” Actually, not all people working with the computers have bad eyes and not all people who have bad eyes are ones SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME ON COMPUTERS.”

  2. hi Spring,
    in the item 1, that’s stereotype, but i think you have a little bit misunderstanding. because, to my mind, it’s true that working with computer so much results in bad eyes, but not all of bad eyes are due to working with computer so much. :d
    I like the item 2 and 3 because it is very lively and interesting example for scapegoating and discrimination.

    hey hey KU!
    I have a dream that you hope I will leave a comment to your entry so I want to help you to finish that cute wish.(hoho !)
    -In item 1:I really like this picture because it’s very lovely like you! @_^.
    I agree with your analysis
    -In item 3: you can analyze more in detail.In the modern society now, although women become more active even good job, a distance also lives between women and men like the image of ladder in that picture.
    After all, I think you had a good entry!
    LOVE U………..! ( cheating ! he )

  4. Hi my spring🙂
    – I love the second item so much. however, I see that the picture doesn’t show the meaning. you should give a passage of the newspaper which says this event
    – In item 1, you should be careful when analyzing. I mean the way you express your idea. it seems to be a bit serious when you insist on the last sentence: ”…bad eyes are ones…”
