It didn't really surprise me because beauty is shown to be a certain way. It makes plenty of girls think that beauty looks a certain way. This is not necessarily a stereotype to a certain race or group of people but to everyone. It can ruin girls self esteems or have unrealistic views on what is considered pretty or how they should look. When in fact beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and colours.

I Am Not a Costume: A Campaign Against Racist Halloween Costumes

I Am Not a Costume: A Campaign Against Racist Halloween Costumes | Not Everyone Is As They Seem | Scoop.it

This article was short but got to the point. It surprised me because I didn't even know racist offensive costumes like those were sold. These races shown in the picture are often stereotyped against and have cruel jokes made about them. The effect it has on these races was shown very well in the photos. It sends a message that it's their culture and race, not who they are and the picture displays how racism has effected them. In my opinion, it showed those costumes aren't funny and humourous but actually really offensive.

Annabel started to notice bandages after her last round of vaccines. She would poke them over and over again, then look up at me with a look on her face that seemed to say, “This is ugly.

Call Me Anything But Mexican

Call Me Anything But Mexican | Not Everyone Is As They Seem | Scoop.it

I really liked this article. As bad as it sounds , I was surprised to find out she is Mexican. I liked that it was written by someone who was sick of being stereotyped and often written off as something she was not. It taught me that just because someone is a certain race doesn't mean they all look alike or have certain features. I could see how she is offended and sick and tired of being catagorized because I often get asked if I'm Jewish because my names Hebrew. I don't someones race should matter quite frankly because we're all human.

Vicious hate and murder in the U.S. 2011 | Video shows white teens driving over, killing black man, says DA

Vicious hate and murder in the U.S. 2011 | Video shows white teens driving over, killing black man, says DA | Not Everyone Is As They Seem | Scoop.it

What really surprised me about this article is how much they hated black people in general and killed a civilized innocent kind black man and had fun doing so and were willing to drive a distance to kill a black person. Often in the media black people are generalized and stereotyped. This is a hate crime plain and simple. It astonished me how much hatred they had for black people and I could see how it would offend people of colour and white people also.

The parents of these hate filled "children" need to be put on trial. What are the parent's teaching their kids? Or are the parents just not teaching them anything?
