The images under scrutiny presented with aspects of cultural violence: i.e. prejudice, stereotypes, racial discrimination. Native Americans in these posters are portrayed as savage killers, kidnappers, and brutal fighters.

Witchcraft in Salem brought out the true colors in Abigail Williams and everyone in the community with how they reacted to the situation. The same thing happened with McCarthyism but it only brought out McCarthy’s bad side and the citizens good side in the McCarthy era. With having the fear of either communism or witchcraft come into your city the emotion of fear takes over everyone. An example of fear rising in a city would be communism trying to take over America and then an “obscure US senator” rises and tries to fix the communism problem but then only makes it worsts. Everyone is impacted with fear no matter how they deal with this emotion it doesn’t go away unless you find where the problem is coming from, for instance the acustions in both The Crucible and the McCarthy era both started with one person telling a

In Born in the Brothel, a documentary by Zana Briski, she documented the lives of children who are born and raised in a brothel. Briski’s presence in the documentary and the way she could direct the documentary was an essential component that impacted the way the documentary was portrayed.

I never expected for Briski to capture the purity of the children and how much hope there was inside of them.
