The Acceptance of Others
Recently, our school adopted the OLWEAS bulling training program. Every other Tuesday we meet with a select group of students and a teacher and talk about different instances and about ourselves. During the trainings that I have endured it has made me think about my actions towards other people and how these actions or words are portrayed. One instance was judging people before you know them personally. As soon as you look at a person most people make a general note based on the way they look, how they dress, and the way they carry themselves. These are three things that I generally note when I meet a person. Most of these first impressions are changed at the time that you speak to them on a more personal level. I invited a friend to accompany myself and three others on a journey to a nearby town to attend a haunted house; I pressured this person several times to join us after he had repeatedly said no. I later found out that this person has a severe social anxiety disorder which prohibits them from engaging in activities on the spot. Generally this person needs time to prepare themselves before putting themselves out there with other people. Another instance happened shortly after the previous one, the football team had just finished a game and I entered the school building to return the film camera when I came upon a student sitting on a bench. I asked why he was still at the school and he replied that he was just waiting for his brother. We made small talk until he revealed a shocking piece of information. He had been taking depression medicine for several months due to his home life. This literally broke my heart in two, this student was my friend and yet I knew so little about him. Being accepting of others is extremely important; these two students are friends of mine and within the last month I found out two things I had no idea about and judging people on the way they look or how they dress is something we all need to work on....
An acceptance is “a manifestation of assent to the terms [of the offer] made by the
offeree in the manner invited or required by the offer.” In determining if an offeree
accepted an offer and created a contract, a court will look for evidence of three factors:
(1) the offeree intended to enter the contract, (2) the offeree accepted on the terms
proposed by the offeror, and (3) the offeree communicated his acceptance to the offeror.
Common Law: Traditional “Mirror Image” Rule
The traditional contract law rule is that an acceptance must be the mirror image of the
offer. Attempts by offerees to change the terms of the offer or to add new terms to it are
treated as counteroffers because they impliedly indicated an intent by the offeree to reject
the offer instead of being bound by its terms. However, recent years have witnessed a
judicial tendency to apply the mirror image rule in more liberal fashion by holding that
only material (important) variances between an offer and a purported acceptance result in
an implied rejection of the offer.
Even under the mirror image rule, no rejection is implied if an offereee merely asks about
the terms of the offer without indicating its rejection (an inquiry regarding terms), or
accepts the offer’s terms while complaining about them (a grumbling acceptance).
Distinguishing among a counteroffer, an inquiry...
The term acceptance is defined as a noun, in which it shows to have three different meanings.
The first is known as the act of taking or receiving something offered. For example, if someone is giving you a gift and you receive it, then you have accepted the gift; therefore, having acceptance.
Another definition of acceptance has to deal with positive welcome; favor and endorsement. In which, a person could like someone and, haveacceptance for them due to their approval of that person.
The third description of acceptance is that it can be an act of believing or assenting.
Acceptance - "An express act or implication by conduct that manifests assent to the terms of an offer in a manner invited or required by the offer so that a binding contract is formed. The exercise of power conferred by an offer by performance of some act. The act of a person to whom something is offered of tendered by another, whereby the offered demonstrates through an act invited by the offer an intention of retaining the subject of the offer." (Chirelstein, 2001)
This definition overlaps with the definition of the quality known as toleration. Acceptance and tolerance are not synonyms.
E. Tolle (Power of Now, etc.) defines acceptance as a "this is it" response to anything occurring in any moment of life. There, strength, peace and serenity are available when one stops...

In today’s society, humans are quick to judge others based on what they believe. Communities tend to negatively view people who are different and do not fit into their own norms. All cultures have norms but they have differences that do not adapt with the dominant core culture in the United States. How we create the other is from our beliefs, values, and behaviors. If other people do not fit into a certain structure, we often have assumptions against them.
Growing up in a particular neighborhood related with gang influences and doing graffiti is usually not accepted by many people. In Ruben Martinez’s essay “Going up in LA”, he shows the community of the graffiti artists and how they get discriminated for what they do. Graffiti artist Phoe describes writing as a community because it is a source of communication with other writers all over the city (Pg 104 ¶ 14 ). This community uses this form of art to express their feelings, thoughts, and messages in public. They compose their own culture together by having a passion for “bombing” around town with their meaningful pieces. Writers from the Eastside state that when they do graffiti they are being blame for vandalism but when whites do it is called art (Pg 106 ¶ 23 ). There is a distinction based on race and class which irritates most eastside writers. They do come from poor neighborhoods and low class families but that should not mean their way of art should be...

Have you ever walked into a room and felt a tension caused by a lack of acceptance towards you, floating in the air so thick that you could have cut it with a knife? Many people when in a state or condition of different cultural identities, ideas or morals within a closed society, tend to feel uncomfortable or disagreeable and not accept each other. This state of mind originates because of the fact that most groups of people do not see eye to eye with each other, or agree with each other. This feeling of disagreeing can inaugurate from many different reasons, including cultural differences, different political views, financial differences, race, human nature, or even because of the different shades of skin color one might have.
There are many people who agree with the idea that a substantial amount of people or groups of people resist acceptance with other groups of people. In the work of literature titled “For My Indian Daughter” by an inspiring author named Lewis (Johnson) Sawaquat, the idea of the reluctance towards acceptance is greatly expressed throughout the text. In a paragraph Sawaquat summarized a time when he joined the army, and expressed the reluctance the other men had towards accepting him and sharing their culture with his, stating, “One night all the men in my barracks gathered together and, gang-fashion, pulled me into...

Have you ever experienced being the “other”? When you are the other it means being invisible. Being rejected by other people who are different from you may affect someone’s personality and outlook. You’re being discriminated by everyone so you feel like there’s no point of even doing what you like to do. In the reading “Diversity and it’s Discontents” Arturo Madrid writes that even though he was born and raised in this country, he has spent most of his life explaining who he’s not. Arturo says that in schools there is more socialization than education. In the reading he explains how he grew up being known as the other in an American society.
Being the other not only means having a different skin complexion as somebody else, it is also having an accent, being a female or male, age, sexuality, religion and race, for example like it catholic churches if you are a Christian you would be the other, or if you are African American in a white community you would be the other. In the reading Arturo says “I have spent most of my adult life explaining who I am not.” He is basically saying that his whole like he has been judged for his looks, the way he talks, and his name. Arturo is an American but because of his looks people don’t consider him an American so he is the “other”.
People may criticize you just because you don’t...
