Orange Is the New Black

Leave a comment

I was extremely interested in this episode of Orange Is the New Black. I liked the show but it most definitely wasn’t my favorite thing in the world. It has so much stereotyping going on that it was unreal. I didn’t like how they made the black women seem like they are obnoxious and disgusting. It made it seem like that is how black women are in jail but obviously not all black women are like that. I also didn’t like the fact that Piper’s mother made it seem that she was to good to be in jail and was better than everyone else. I certainly like that Piper is aware that she has done wrong and takes responsibility for her actions and doesn’t feed into her mothers snobbiness.  It also definitely puts them in groups according to race which isn’t realistic in all jails. Not only does it do all of that, but it groups people according to age and makes fun of them by calling them the “golden girls.” This show is just a complete example on why out world is the way it is today. Everyone already has a stereotype before they are even born based on color no matter who you are. It is cruel and sickening.
