The Danger of a Single Story
Please watch Chimamanda Adichie passionately and clearly teach us the “danger of a single story” in her 2009 TED Talk. You can find it here:

Adichie demonstrates the ways in which our society is a collection of social stories or narratives, the most pervasive and controlling of which are/were manufactured by people with social power.
Write a discussion post (400-500 words) where you select a societal single story and analyze it. Use your sociological imagination. Explain the single story you chose. Think of questions like: How does the story affect people’s sense of self? How does it affect the way people understand each other? How does the story affect contemporary social relations? How does it contribute to the perpetuation of inequality in society? How has it become institutionalized?
