Prejudice

Preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.

Denotation

Preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.



Connotation

When I hear this word I feel as though I can’t really say anything because when you you hear the word you are associated with being hateful against people's race, orientation, etc. Like you can’t make a comment on prejudice because then you can come off as prejudice to someone else, like you are walking on eggshells. It's weird because you shouldn’t have to walk on eggshells with words.



Association

When you usually hear the word you think of Awfully rude people. That are judgemental and stuck-up. You also think of other words associated with it like, Closed-minded, bad opinion, dislike, sexism, racism, etc.

Concept

This concept means to me that you are a closed-minded one sided person who only thinks of one thing being the right thing and feeling you have to put down someone else for there differences from you.

In To Kill A Mockingbird

In To Kill A Mockingbird the meaning of the word is to be rude to another person that is different from you or have an opinion that is one-sided. Like how the boy in Scouts class is a prejudice against Scouts father because of what he's heard from his father.

In Today's Society

In today society many people are prejudice in one way or another because of what they hear on the news about a certain type of person or what their parents tell them. Its easier to be prejudice and to share it with other because of social media< you can always hide your identity or even make it known.

In To Kill A Mocking Bird

It was A big deal for Calpurnia to bring the kids to church, as the church for black people back then was a big deal and something that they valued very much. And the fact that Calpurnia had the courage to bring white kids to church says a lot about her mindset.

In todays society everybody does what everybody else does, courage today is not blending in with the crowd. Courage today is taking the unconventional path, its doing something that the average person wouldn't do, like taking white kids to a black church.

Injustice in To Kill A Mocking Bird

Injustice in to Kill A Mocking Bird presents its self as an unfair trail for Tom Robinson. "The jury couldn't possibly be expected to take Tom Robinson's word against the Ewells." (Chapter 9)

In Our Society

Injustice in our society looks like, Muslims who are ascociated with ISIS but infact have none.
