Week 4 DQ1 · Is there harm in telling jokes about ethnic groups? Explain. I believe there is definitely potential harm in telling jokes about ethnic groups. Some people say things like “it’s just jokes”, but I don’t believe these people take into consideration the fact that sometimes people can take the jokes to be accurate representations of the targeted groups. People comprehend information differently and a person should not assume that all people will “get the joke.” Even amidst laughter sometimes people can take the information they hear, however absurd it may be, and believe that it must, at the very least, contain some truth.

We never think about them (What is them, use what your are talking about instead of them just for this one the other two you can leave), we don’t question them; we never raise these “ubiquitous” issues.

She was unable to take clients to lunch because of how it would be perceived.

How was the “collectively walk the red light” phenomenon developed? I think, the reason can be listed as follows. First of all, most of Chinese people tend to be unprincipled in the daily routine, which is clearly demonstrated in details of people’s demeanor. When throwing litter, trampling flowers and plants, or running a red light, people know that it is not right to do so, but they still choose to act in line with their own principles of conduct that lead to the best consequences. And even if they are caught doing that, the consequences are not serious at all.
