RacismВ StereotypingВ EssayВ

DecemberВ 6, В 2014В

StereotypesВ areВ cognitiveВ structuresВ thatВ containВ theВ perceiver'sВ knowledge, В beliefs, В andВ expectationsВ aboutВ humanВ groups. В It'sВ sadВ toВ sayВ thatВ todayВ inВ 2014В we'reВ currentlyВ dealingВ withВ racism. В NotВ onlyВ areВ blacksВ andВ whitesВ givingВ eachВ otherВ badВ names, В theВ mediaВ playsВ aВ hugeВ partВ inВ stereotypesВ also. В ResearchersВ haveВ toldВ usВ " SinceВ theВ mediaВ isВ stillВ mostlyВ controlledВ byВ whites, В theyВ haveВ theВ powerВ toВ actВ onВ theirВ racialВ biasesВ toВ aВ muchВ greaterВ extentВ thanВ anyВ otherВ race. ” WeВ allВ knowВ thatВ asВ soonВ asВ somethingВ happens, В theВ mediaВ mustВ playВ itsВ roleВ ofВ turningВ theВ storyВ intoВ itsВ ownВ orВ judgingВ eitherВ sides. В WeВ canВ possiblyВ argueВ aboutВ whetherВ itВ wasВ fairВ orВ notВ butВ racialВ stereotypingВ isВ atВ theВ coreВ ofВ bothВ theВ TrayvonВ MartinВ andВ MikeВ BrownВ cases. В InВ theВ pastНѕВ thereВ wasВ suchВ aВ thingВ asВ " Blackface” whichВ beganВ inВ theВ 1830's, В newerВ mediaВ likeВ todaysВ choiceВ ofВ musicВ whichВ leadsВ toВ theВ racialВ stereotypingВ today, В suchВ asВ TrayvonВ MartinВ andВ MikeВ BrownВ cases. В TodayВ ourВ media, В whichВ hasВ longВ perpetuatedВ racialВ stereotyping, В isВ toВ blame. В В

BlackfaceВ firstВ becameВ naturallyВ popularВ inВ theВ lateВ 1820'sВ whenВ whiteВ maleВ performersВ portrayedВ AfricanВ­AmericanВ charactersВ usingВ burntВ corkВ toВ blackenВ theirВ skin. В TheyВ woreВ tatteredВ clothing, В andВ mockedВ blackВ behavior, В portrayingВ stereotypesВ forВ laughs. В TheВ charactersВ haveВ playedВ aВ significantВ roleВ inВ dispersingВ racistВ imagesВ andВ attitudes. В EveryВ immigratedВ groupВ wasВ stereotypedВ onВ theВ stageВ inВ theВ 19thВ centuryВ butВ theВ prejudiceВ behavior, В ignoranceВ andВ hostilityВ towardsВ blacksВ haveВ createdВ aВ pathВ forВ stereotyping. В TheseВ inappropriateВ portrayalsВ ofВ theВ blackВ lifeВ wereВ seenВ byВ thousandsВ ofВ blacksВ beforeВ theВ CivilВ

War. В WhatВ wereВ theirВ emotionsВ whileВ watchingВ theseВ shows? В How'dВ theyВ feel? В Sadly, В theseВ showsВ wereВ enjoyedВ byВ MarkВ TwainВ andВ AbrahamВ Lincoln. В TheВ ironyВ ofВ itВ allВ wereВ thatВ AfricanВ...
