Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche warns us about the danger of the ‘Single Story’ in her TED Talk. I think her main point in this talk is that multiple perspectives are necessary to create a full story and much more perspectives are required to create an unbiased story. First, Chimamanda showed an important example of how everyone that she ever read about was “white and blue eyed, they played in the snow, and they eat apples,” (00:39). This is important because it shows that through the many books with only one perspective that Chimimanda was reading as a child, she came to believe that all characters in books should be white and blue eyed, play in the snow and eat apples. A ‘single story’ was forming. Chimamanda also showed great examples with people only having a ‘single story’ towards her and examples of ‘single story’ situations throughout history. The most impactful example, however, was when she went to Mexico for the first time. She talks about how when she went to Mexico, she had been living in the USA for some time. During this time, there were some tensions along the border and the Mexican people had been shown on the media and by the government “as people who were fleecing the healthcare system, sneaking across the border, being arrested at the border, that sort of thing,” (08:21). When Chimamanda went to Mexico for the first time, she was surprised to see that Mexicans were ordinary people, just like her. Then she realized that she had been influenced with the ‘single story’ of the government and the media. This last example clearly shows that anyone can be a target for the ‘single story’. Someone will always have a ‘single story’ about you, and you will always have a ‘single story’ about someone. It is almost impossible to live life without bias. However, I still think that we should try and reach out to all stories, to gain the different perspectives of the world, and see it as it really is.
