Today, there is a lot of bias going on in the media. Media bias is the perception that the media is reporting the news in a partial or prejudiced manner.

Bias can be a personal opinion or a more public opinion, such as a news story, that only presents facts that support one point of view. Bias is common in writing and speech that we are not aware of, but it is the
Racial inequality has plagued our society for centuries and has been described as a “black eye” on American history. It wasn’t until the passing of The Civil Rights Act of 1965 that minorities were given equal protection under the law. This was a crucial step on our society’s road to reconciling this injustice. However, the effects of past racial inequality are still visible to this day, and our society still wrestles with how to solve this issue. In 1965, President Lyndon B Johnson said: “You do not take a person who, for years, has been hobbled by chains and liberate him, bring him up to the starting line of a race and then say you are free to compete with all the others, and still just believe that you have been completely fair. This is the next and more profound stage of the battle for civil rights. We seek not just freedom but opportunity––not legal equity but human ability––not just equality as a right and a theory, but equality as a fact and as a result” (Garrison-Wade & Lewis, 2003). That same year, President Johnson signed an executive order mandating government contractors “take affirmative action” in
Before media, politicians and other newsmakers had to rely on word of mouth to communicate the various messages they were espousing. However, they found this was an unreliable method of communication and the first newspapers and other media mediums were created. This comes at a drawback. As media companies grow larger and larger, they become more susceptible to bias. This has lead to a proliferation of bias across the many media companies in existence today.

CINCINNATI – No matter how good a scout is, or how advanced analytics become, there will always be an element of crapshoot in the draft, an inevitable by-product of trying to project what young men aged 18-22 will become three or four years down the line.
As Robertson Davies once said, “The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.” Bias is prevalent throughout everyone's lives whether they notice it or not. Each person has their own perception on different things and that is what creates bias. In To Kill a Mockingbird bias is shown throughout the story, and affects the lives of the citizens of Maycomb, Alabama. Bias is also all over America, but many people just don’t realize it even though it affects their daily lives. My personal biases impact my daily life in good and bad ways as well. Biases constrict us from seeing the real image of the world, and that shapes it to make it how it is today.
Bias is defined as being prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.

It was proposed by a feminist Alison Bechdel in the 80s. A movie is said to pass the Bechdel Test if in the movie, two or more women are shown to have a back and forth conversation about anything other than men. Surprisingly, out of 2500 movies, more than half have failed to pass it. Even the script writers do not try to pass the Bechdel Test because, well, this is what sells the movie. A lot of famous movies like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Dark Knight Rises, The Pirates of Caribbean have failed to pass this test. The stereotypes about Arabs were also discussed in detail. Arabs are shown as villains and terrorists. They are shown as barbaric, Muslims or foreigners. Arab women are depicted as belly dancers or harems under veils. This was followed by a discussion on stereotypes on Latin Americans, Blacks and Native Americans. Native Americans are a diverse culture but are still depicted as medicine men or princesses.

Homework is an on-going topic of debate that has been being questioned for decades. In my opinion, I don’t think that homework is essential to students due to the effect it has on your mental and eventually your physical health and it is starting to affect their school life. Is the amount of work we get actually helpful to students? Is it too much for students? How is homework affecting my child? These are some of the questions that have been asked by parents, teachers, and researchers alike; and in this essay I will provide the answer to all these queries.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once had a dream in which he calls for an end to racism in the U.S. and calls for civil and economic rights.

Whether they are overweight, average, underweight, not young enough, or too small or towering. Although the rights for women have changed drastically over the years, there are still women suffering out in the world.
