Sometimes the media gives us negative information about an event, people, situation or place and when the media transmit negative information to us we create stereotypes. If this was the case with a certain place we may categorize it as dangerous, that’s what happened at Sherman Park, that’s why today I bring this blog to tell you things your local news channel isn’t telling you about Sherman Park:
- Boys & Girls Club; there is a for a children’s and the teens to practice what they really liked and this prevents the teens are in the streets, this place has a basketball court, a place to grow plants and food etc.
- Looks like any other place in Milwaukee; from outside a car this area looks like any other area of Milwaukee, looks like a nice place to live in.
- Is a safe place to live; Despite the circumstances surrounding the Sherman Park this area is seen as a safe place to live, is a nice place.
I think we should reconsider the way we look at Sherman Park as a dangerous place and try to see it as a nice and safe place like any other area of Milwaukee. And try to avoid or not believe in the stereotypes that exist in our country to be able to live in a pleasant and peaceful place.
