This story is about stereotyping and the result of stereotyping. Result can be both, positive and negative. Some people who take as a positive way, they work hard like Tiffany. But whose people who take emotionally or negatively, they take this things in different way. Those who are emotional, they got frustrated. It disturbed their mental life. And those who take it negatively, they also think like stereotype to other community. The end result comes racism, war etc.

In “Arguments based on emotion” we also see one kind of judgment or stereotyping. Though it wasn’t clear like “Academia, love me back”. This text is showing us result of a new side of stereotyping. In this text can see how politicians are taking advantage of stereotyping. How they are playing with peoples emotion for their own profit. We can get clear idea about it when we saw this lines from text; “Emotional appeals (appeals to pathos) are powerful tools for influencing what people think and believe. We all make decisions—even including the most important ones—based on our feelings.” (para 1, page 1). “Yet as analysts pointed out, the president’s speech was also measured. As President George W. Bush had done before him, Obama was careful to say that the United States is not and never has been at war with Islam—but with terrorism. Rather, he simply announced that “a small team of Americans . . . killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body.” Rather than celebrating or gloating, the president spoke with calm control about American values” (page 4, para 4).
