It was from then on that I realized; when someone is prejudice against your race or culture, it can be extremely difficult to change his or her negative opinion about you. When Pat Sumi is retelling her childhood, she tells Ryan Yokota, “It was not a negative stereotype, but it was a stereotype nonetheless and it made me aware at a very early age how your looks and your background could be twisted by people who wanted to make assumptions” (Interview with Pat Sumi, Yokota p.17). In the past, I have never really considered stereotypes as being either positive or negative, it was always just negative to me.

On past Halloweens, the local kids have broken windows, and worse, so I need someone to stay there the whole night to make sure no harm comes to my building. I will pay $3000 for anybody willing to do this, but I must be completely honest and disclose the fact that previous house sitters have run out of the house in the middle of the night because they were convinced the house was haunted by ghosts.

If you have the courage to accept this job, please call me. –Dick Shore, 917-555-1221 Finish this story.

This scene shows a parent who is unable to speak to her daughter, and she handles this disconnection with anger, which serves to make daughter less talkative. On the other hand, the parents in Mean Girls make an honest effort: in multiple scenes, Cady’s parents inquire as to how Cady’s day at school went, and do so in a kind and honestly interested tone. They go so far as to ask if Cady had made friends and how she is doing. They actually dote on her. In effect, the contrast between parents in these stories is striking because it directly affects how the reader and viewer feel toward the main character.

This is accentuated by the fact that Mama was denied an education because her school closed down. “After 2nd grade the school closed down.” Dee was fortunate that Mama gave her the opportunity, but her superior intellect serves only to detach her from her mother and her sister. Dee uses her intellect to patronize and almost intimidate others. As a child Dee read to her mother and sister “Without pity, to shove us away at just the moment, like dimwits, we seemed about to understand.” This clearly conveys how Dee was so detached from her family. She “shoves them away” when they are about to reach the same level of understanding as she does.
