what are stereotypes
What are Stereotypes?
  • Immigrants have poor English
  • Men are strong and do all the work.
  • All Arabs and Muslims are terrorists.
  • All Asians are good at math, like

to eat rice and drive Hondas slowly.

  • Girls are only concerned about physical appearance.

These are all common misconceptions, otherwise known as stereotypes.

Stereotypes are a standardized conception or image perceived as true by a majority of people.

chapters 4 7
Chapters 4-7
  • There are some common stereotypes in “Huckleberry Finn”
  • In chapters 4-7, we see a specific one mentioned. Huck’s father Pap assumes that just because Huck is staying with the wealthy Widow Douglas, Huck is educated, rich, and thinks highly of himself.
  • We believe this is stereotyped because not everyone that has an education is wealthy.
  • Also, not everyone who’s wealthy is snotty (or smart in that case).

Quotes from the book displaying the wealthy/educated/narcissus stereotype in chapter 5 of “Huckleberry Finn” said by Pap:

  • “’Starchy clothes-very. You think you’re a good deal of a big-bug, don’t you?”
  • “You’ve put on a considerable many frills since I been away. . .You’re educated too, they say; can read and write. You think you’re better than your father, now, don’t you, because he can’t?”
  • “Your mother couldn’t read, and she couldn’t write, nuther, before she died. None of the family couldn’t, before they died. I can’t; and here you’re a-swelling yourself up like this.”
  • “Ain’t you a sweet-scented dandy, though? A bed; and bedclothes; and a look’n-glass; and a piece of carpet on the floor—and your own father got to sleep with the hogs in the tanyard. I never seen such a son. . .Why there ain’t no end to your airs—they say you’re rich. . .”
  • Huck: “When he had got out on the shed, he put his head in again, and cussed me for putting on frills and trying to be better than him. . .”
time period
Time period
  • Back in the era of 1885, this stereotype

was very relevant

  • Educated white vs. non-educated African Americans
    • The whites felt like they were above the African Americans for many reasons. One was because almost all white people were in school or were taught literature (etc.), the black people were never able to be educated so the whites looked down on them.
  • The rich vs. the poor
    • We see the stereotype in the 1880s; we may also see it today
    • The rich felt as though they were above the less fortunate people.
    • Often the rich would not associate

with the middle/poverty class
