I need some assistance with these assignment. the prejudice and stigma of skateboarders Thank you in advance for the help! The prejudice and unfairness on the society’s part are that they have failed to realize that skateboarders too are humans much like us. They too have a right to enjoy their own selves and exhibit their talents through this sport. It indeed is an activity that requires the highest levels of stamina, fitness and complete control over mind and body. This by no stretch of the imagination is a mean feat and must be hailed by all and sundry rather than the other way round. I perceive this to be a very athletic sport which is bringing the youngsters into shape, keeping them away from junk food and sticking to a balanced diet – an element so essential for becoming a skateboarder in the first place.
Now I will come to the point of stereotyping the skateboarders for no valid reason. I believe that society has done more harm than good towards the cause of its young ones. If skateboarders are given the right to choose between good and bad, they must go for something good. But the entire opposite is happening at the moment. They prefer the bad over the good. I question why? The answer that I can bring here in front of this august audience is that we ourselves are responsible for the anarchic and troubling nature that the sport of skateboarding has become in the present times.
Society thus has a lot of bearing and effect on the manner in which skateboarders have tried to rescue their own selves, maintain their pride and in essence the love for the game itself. We must give them a patient hearing as to why they are earmarked as being bad right from the very onset. Is it because they bring with them wrath and destruction to public property and more than that peace within the society? I ask you is that the case? Well, then the only solution I could offer or even come close to the offering is that we ourselves are responsible for bringing them to this stage in its entirety.
