Labels Why is labeling people dangerous? Does labeling show who you are? Is labeling people okay? Labeling should not define who you are, nor should your culture. Labels are putting negativity on the person so what calling by what they show. People just look at the outside and what’s the inside. The negativity builds up till then someone does something or stands up. The people who label others and just creating drama out of jealousy because there's something about you that they want or they can’t have. Don't allow people to put you on a pedestal. You live your life the way you want because they are not you. If you don't agree with the label’s people give because those are for jars, cans, and containers. Label’s shape more than just our way of seeing color and our culture; they can also change how we conceive not easily analyzed targets, like people. Have you ever asked someone who they really are or take the time to actually get to know them before labeling them? You don't know that they are going through things and you might even be putting more stress on them than they already have. According to Adam Alter “race isn't the only label that shapes perception and a classic study by John Darley and Paget Gross showed similar effects when they varied whether a young girl, Hannah, seemed poor or wealthy”~ Adam Alter. “If you use terms to describe people—and you believe that they cannot change—then your life can be stressful. Every time that someone treats you badly, you take that as evidence that they are a bad person, and not just that they are a possibly good person who just happened to do a bad thing.”~Art Markman Ph.D. Let’s imagine how life would be if we didn't use labels. When we are mad we say things that some people regret saying and use their words against people. Society would look like we all get along and no war towards others.
