Good Questions

From throughout 5th period today:

1. (Looking at the warm-up question, which is: What is your definition of prejudice? Give an example.)
“Wait. I don’t understand. What if we really don’t know what prejudice is?”

2. “So is it prejudiced if I look at someone who’s really fit and assume that they are a fast runner?”

3. “What if I see a black person and I remember statistics that say black people commit more crimes? Am I being prejudiced?”

4. “Can we take the implicit association test right now? Oh, pleeeaase, Ms. C?”

5. “Wait. Scout’s not Black?”

6. “Ms. C? I just wanted to say that Nelson Mandela just died. Can we have a moment of silence?”

7. “Can we open the windows to try to feel the snow?”
